Hello - I'm looking for examples of easy, unobtrusive ways for users to track the time the spend as they pull up records in an Access application, record by record.

Take for instance, in a job tracking app, where for a given job, steps are assigned to various users, and those users open job step records assigned to them in a detail form.

I was thinking to provide Start/Pause/Stop buttons on the job step detail form, that would log the start, stop, and elapsed times to a log file, including the user ID and the primary key of the Job step .

And then I thought, "I bet somebody has already done something like this..."   :-)

Anybody done this, or heard of something similar?
