Chrometa Passive Timekeeping Captures Every Minute

Chrometa is passive timekeeping that records every minute you work and automatically reports it on your timesheet. It’s just like having a personal timekeeper.


Tracking your time is a hassle, and you often end up missing important details, which can lead to decreased billing. With Chrometa, you can be sure that every email you send, every moment you spend on your PC, Mac, iPhone, or Android device, is captured. On mobile devices, Chrometa will even categorize the phone calls and texts you get from clients.

Here’s how it works. When you are working on your computer, Chrometa will record what you are working on—which application, which file, which email, and more. If you are on a website, Chrometa captures the URL and title of the web page for you. When you shift gears and move to another task, Chrometa moves with you and stops timing the previous task and starts timing the new one. You can leave multiple browser tabs and applications open—Chrometa will only track the time in the active window.

Chrometa integrates with Clio so that your timekeeping data syncs with your law practice management software. It also integrates with popular applications like QuickBooks, FreshBooks, LexisNexis, and more. Plugins for Microsoft Outlook, Gmail, and Mac Mail mean that your email time is easily tracked as well.
