⏲️ Visual Time Spent - Time Tracking Extension For Coding In Visual Studio

Introduction

 
These days  everyone wants to know how much time we spend on each task and also what task took the most time in developing and building the applications and products using Visual Studio. It also saves time that we are working on our projects.
 
We have many tools in the market which help us to get the result. Here is the extension which helps us in tracking all of this.
 
What is the extension? It's Visual Time Spent.
 
Let's go deep into this..!

Visual Time Spent automatically tracks your time spent working on any project, solution & documents which we are developing using Visual Studio; and yes, we can generate the reports to see overall time spent and what activities took time.
 

Which version of Visual Studio does it support?
