Visual Time Spent automatically tracks your time spent working on solutions, projects and documents in Visual Studio 2022/2019/2017. You can generate reports to see overall time spent and what activities took most time.

Visual Time Spent installer requires admin rights and installs for all users. The monitoring module is installed for each Visual Studio version present on the computer - you can verify its integration opening the About Microsoft Visual Studio dialog. A shortcut to the Visual Time Spent reporting tool is added to the Start Menu - All Programs list.

Monitoring and reporting
All your activity such as editing and browsing in Visual Studio automatically recorded to a database. The reporting tool lets you specify report period and displays summary of your activity grouped by solution/project/window and sorted by time spent. For each solution and project the time spent percentage out of total time is displayed in the % column.
You can export the report to a CSV file for analysis in Excel or another application using the Export to CSV toolbar button.

Hovering the mouse over a solution name shows a tooltip with the solution path.

Idle time (when you don't use Visual Studio for more than 2 minutes) is automatically excluded from the report.

The database with all recorder activity is stored in the file %LocalAppData%\Sergey Vlasov\Visual Time Spent\1.0\events.sdf. It is a Microsoft SQL Server Compact 4.0 database.
