    I need a simple database app to keep track of four fields. Date, Client number, Number of hours, Narrative.

    ie.
    8/14/05 753,968 1.6 Review pleadings
    8/14/05 759,796 0.2 Call w/ client

    As an attorney this would allow me to keep better track of my time while on the road - I presently use the memo function and just jot down the info in one long memo.

    It would be great to have an app with just these fields which creates a memo which I can then print out when I sync with my desktop.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I too am an attorney. I have been using TEAK (Time, Expense, Automobile Keeper) for about 6 years. It's interface is simple, elegant and most importantly, intuitive. It also has it's own desktop counterpart with which it syncs.

    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product for attorneys, accountants and anyone needing to keep time records for clients/customers. It can be found at www.eb7.com

    Cheers

    I use a simple Excel file stored in DocsToGo that my secretary can access through the corp network when I sync - works great.

    Bringing this one back to life.....

    I use a little known software called SDS Time and the reason I like it is it is spreadsheet based.

    You might want to have a look at it - it took me a long time to find it.... :-)

    I couldn't tell from the web page for SDS Time whether it had a field where you enter the narrative for the tasks performed. You know, "Massively important telephone conference" 0.2 hours. That stuff. Are you able to write descriptions for each entry?

    Anyone look at Standard Time from Iambic?

    Client and Project hours Tracking
    Expense Tracking
    Client Invoicing

    As simple or comprehensive as you want to make it.

    I actually found out that the billing software my firm uses, Tabs3, has a palm version.

    http://www.practicemaster.com/produc...palm/palm.html

    I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but will once things slow down around here - like that ever happens!

    Has anyone used it?
    Factory unlocked/unbranded GSM 650 - Tmobile; FW: 1.71; SW: 1.20-ENA; Carrier DB: 255; HW: A

    If I'm repeating what someone has already said look at how long the thread is and ask yourself if you really expect me to read the whole thing.

    For several years our firm has used PcLaw for time/billing calendaring, payroll, and contact manager.

    Recently I added PcLaw TE to my Treo 650. The world is as one. Now I have one program that provides calendar, timesheets, and contacts in one place.


    One note, make sure you activate the PcLaw outlook connection. That transfers all your contacts to outlook which synchs with your phone so you can one touch dial from contact list. Cannot one touch dial from PcLaw TE contacts.

    It does not do that...

    I use DayNotez as my daily diary and agree it would be nice if my timesheet and diary were in one place.

    This combo is the best I have come up with.....

    I am not a lawyer by the way, just another professional :-)

    Many of our customers use ListPro for timesheet tracking. You can create a list just as you described, and each item has a large notes field which would allow you to annotate an item.
    ListPro also has a category field type, which could be prepopulated with the client numbers.
    In addition to full item-level synchronization with the PC version, the PC version has printing capabilities and can import/export in a number of formats.

    A free sample time tracking ListPro file is available from our list exchange at http://www.iliumsoft.com/download/lists3/timetrack.clf

    I'd encourage you to try the free 30 day trial available at

    Some of these are expensive. We use ProLaw, but I don't believe they have an palm add on. I am waiting for Airtime Manager to add PalmOS as this will be a way to capture calls. I am interested how to use ListPro to capture time and the accompanying narrative description.
    ...can prevent unnecessary threads.

    Thank your for your interest in ListPro.

    We don't have a tutorial for time tracking, but perhaps we should.

    There is a user guide that covers using ListPro in detail. It is available at
    http://www.iliumsoft.com/gh/download...sGuidePalm.pdf
    It may provide some insight into using ListPro for this task.

    [edit 1/25/06]
    I put together a narrative of this scenario on our site. If you are interested, then this may answer many of your questions.
