Free time-tracking for everyone

Kimai is a free & open source timetracker. It tracks work time and prints out a summary of your activities on demand. Yearly, monthly, daily, by customer, by project … It’s simplicity is its strength. Due to Kimai’s browser based interface it runs cross-platform, even on your mobile device.



Track and manage your working times with Kimai or export them


Print invoices for your customers directly with Kimai in several formats


Get an insight with several statistics about your time-tracking records and more
While there are many programs one can use for time and project tracking, they tend to be overkill for my rather simple needs. Kimai came about because I was tired to feed lame boring excel tables …

Kimai does not have to run while recording, you can even quit your browser. Your time is still recording until you stop it from any web browser that has access to your installation. It is designed to hold lots of users, but you can also use it for a single user if you want to.

Limit records

You can record as many times as you want in parallel, but you can also config the allowed limit of active records down to 1.

AM/PM format

Kimai uses localized version of the 24 hour format. But if you are used to the am/pm format, you can configure that.

Duration only

If your local laws require you to only show durations instead of start and end date-time, you can activate that mode globally.


Don’t want your users to log arbitrary timesheet records? Switch to the time-clock mode, which only allows “punch in” and “punch out” records. No more manually given start and end times.

Rate calculation

Rates can be calculated based on hourly and fixed amounts, configurable for customers, projects, activities and each timesheet record individually.

Timesheet filter

You can filter all time-records by user, customer, project, activity and date.

Weekend rates

You can configure global settings for rate factors on single weekdays, e.g. 150% for saturday and sunday.


After a long usage a lot of entries can pile up in your dropdowns - now you can hide customers, projects and activities.


Customizable permission structure. Assign different roles to your user, e.g. users can record times, teamleads can print invoices and configure project/activities, admins can configure users and customers.
