Here are the technology and applications you’ll need to make the most of Time by Ping.

Timekeeping shouldn’t be as laborious as it is. A time-consuming manual task that no one enjoys and most put off until the last minute, it’s overdue a rethink. That’s why we created Time by Ping, or TBP for short.

TBP automates timekeeping. It works silently in the background, capturing your activity across a range of applications, systems, websites and devices, and then adds them chronologically to your Timeline. For TBP to work perfectly, your system needs to meet certain requirements, listed below.
