Maybe I am looking for more than I need, but does anyone know of cheap software that can be used as a quick time log with fast date stamps that can be incorporated into Outlook or OneNote? I do have something in Excel. Just thinking outloud here. Thanks.

Jere - If all you need to do is add a time or date stamp to a note in Outlook or OneNote, I suggest you look at ActiveWords. Among its many functions, it can do this in just about any context you can imagine. All I do is type "date" followed by a command key and AW inserts the date at my insertion point.
Is this what you're after?

Not sure if this is what you're after, but have you considered using the Journal function in Outlook? You can record the topic/project you're tracking in the subject line. The entry is automatically date stamped--start the timer, record any details about what you're doing in the notes section, and go about your business. Close/save the journal entry when your work is done. There it is...a record of your activity.
