New Paymo Widget

Since launching Paymo in 2008, we have been on a mission to create the best time tracking experience for freelancers & small businesses. From the get-go, a key part of our strategy was to offer a mix of cloud and desktop apps that enable you to work seamlessly across different mediums. Today we’re thrilled to launch the stable release of our desktop time tracking widget V6 – available for Mac, Windows & Linux. It’s been re-built from the ground up with Electron, React and GraphQL offering us a solid base to build upon for the future.

Introducing Paymo Widget v6

The widget is a companion app for the online version of Paymo that allows fast access to your timesheet with a couple of clicks – directly on your desktop. In addition to the basic functions of the online timer, you get lots of extra features that will make time tracking as painless as possible:

  • a view of recent time entries grouped by days
  • quickly restart a recent timer
  • a visual progress of your daily time and overtime indicators
  • keyboard shortcuts for fast tracking
  • idle time detection
  • bulk time shortcuts
  • see the current active timer on the menubar (Mac only)
  • launch on startup

We hope you’ll enjoy using the new widget 🙂

Thanks to all beta testers for your precious feedback!

Hi Jan, congratulations once more time. Does it only work when connected to the internet?




Hopefully you will add the Hide in Dock option again so I won’t have to keep making this update with each refresh:

And I wish this worked when offline as well– the old one did and was extremely useful. Not all work is online!
