what is the best way to track work getting done if i am paying a freelancer by the hour?

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you today. There is no perfect way to track a freelancer's hours from your side, unfortunately. However, you could ask the freelance to check off tasks to see what has been accomplished in a program like Todoist, and to track their hours using a program like Everhour. You can find links to these apps here:

i already have similar to what you suggest i think as i currently use i think that and what you suggest the time can be edited.
I was wondering if there was anything that done it in real time, clock in - clock out is you are working on a project or is it common practice to trust the programmer has worked the hours they say?

For that it may be better to use a business employee tracking time clock app like Clockify, which you can find here:
