    Has anyone got an examples of timesheets they would be willing to let me have.

    Having been made redundant Im setting up freelance and I want to be able to keep track of the hours Im doing on each clients job.

    I know there are various online resources and apps but most you have to pay for - I don't see the point in that when a simple spreadhseet for either excel or numbers would do. Trouble is Im naff with setting up spreadsheets.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Damain, sorry to hear that you were made redundant but I'm glad you are keeping up your self-esteem to use your abilities in alternative ways, i.e. freelancing.

    However I am curious why you don't want to learn how to setup a spreadsheet confidentally.

    Having researched time tracking in graphic design, a basic structure includes:
    Start Time
    End Time
    Time Total (in hours and minutes)
    Project Name
    Type of Task (it is helpful to categorise your work into several options such as design, programming and client meetings. This way, you can see where you are spending your time across all projects)
    Task Details


    How are you going to keep track of your bookkeeping and accounting?

    Here's a very simple spreadsheet

    I included a ID number because it's good to file things with an ID - start at 0000001 and move on to 00000002 etc.

    This way you have a unique identifier per job.

    Insert time in 24 hour format, start and end and time spent on project is auto updated.

    I use freelancer to track my time for projects. You create time slips so you can present them to clients
