I've been using OneNote at work to keep track of my work day. Everything from daily stand-up and meeting notes to more code reviews, notes, and tasks. It's a great way to keep track of what you've been up to and have a quick reminder when you get started on Monday.
On the last day of the month, I usually do a monthly review. This could help you convince your company why you deserve that raise or help you with your regular 1-1 with your manager.
I write short bullet points that I can share with my manager or with my co-workers at any given time.
