  • One of my favourite things in the world is that if I have to do time-accounting, I make sure there's a proper entry, with the appropriate 6 minutes increments, for "time-accounting"... billed to accounting :)
  • Well, in my case the reporting initially wasn't primarily for tracking people's time (that came later), but for tracking projects' time (and unfortunately, time spent on activities in projects which everyone hopefully ignored and put everything on "development" if that was the main activity that week).

    I'm not sure, but I suspect no one actually used this information for anything useful.

    Let me put it this way. This company, while very competent and cluefull in some ways, signed a seven year contract with Accenture (which the next CEO terminated, thankyouverymuch). Keeping track of worked hours isn't the most important battle to fight in that situation, epecially when most people around you aren't unreasonable morons.
