CAD Time Tracking and Analytics - Record and report the true edit and elapsed time spent in drawings and other engineering documents.

General Usage Instructions

CadTempo operates as a background application automatically monitoring the user activity without user intervention.

Optionally, a task timer will prompt the user to enter a task name and additional information as configured by the management.




CadTempo is installed by a setup program that prompts the user for program location.

The setup program should be run as a regular user and will prompt for elevation if needed.

The installer is designed to handle a single user as well as a multi-user network installation.

During evaluation or upon trial completion if a purchase is made there is no need to reinstall.

An uninstaller is included. 

Additional Information

CadTempo is a fully functioning 30 day trial.

Inventor users will want to add an iLogic rule that will display the full file path in the title bar. You can see an example how to do this at the following link:
