Time-tracking for Autodesk® AutoCAD® - report time spent on editing DWG. See more information on

General Usage Instructions

The Job-Time module contains commands - as documented above. You can start them via the ribbon or command line. 

The time-tracking information is stored automatically in custom properties - _DWGPROPS > Custom. Job-Time defines the properties: 
* JobTime - readable net time in the format hh:mm:ss
* JobTimeMinutes - net time in minutes (one decimal place) 
* JobTime-USERNAME - net time in minutes for a specific user
* JobTimeSessions - number of edit-sessions of this DWG 

JOBTIME.VLX has to be loaded in each session for fully automatic operation! DWG file-editing sessions with JobTime.vlx not loaded cannot be tracked! The tracking-reactor is ON by default. Using the JOBTIME command (or its commandline counterpart: -JOBTIME) you can setup the tracking parameters and see detailed statistics. All tracking is updated inside the DWG file on every SAVE command. Logging history (if enabled) is stored in a TXT (tab-delimited) or CSV (comma-delimited) file on drawing close (if the drawing was saved at least once in this session). The preset parameters are stored in the Windows Registry (HKCU > Software > CAD Studio > JobTime) so they are kept between drawings and sessions. You can also install Job-Time company-wide by including it in your deployment images and by setting the Registry keys using GPO or other network deployment tool. 

NB: a single idle time of e.g. 60 minutes when timeout is set to 10 minutes is counted as a half (5 min.) to the tracked time.
