The main idea of this plugin is to track time expended during the day.
In my case I take notes in every meeting and in focus time too, so with this plugin I will be able to report how much I expend in each project.
Reports (previous day/week)
Custom records name from some config in the note
Suggestions are welcome!
Does it require a TimeTagger account to work? I think it'd be interesting if it was simply recording the time in a note, and then additionally syncing that to TimeTagger. I've been meaning to create such plugin actually but haven't had time yet.
Does it require a TimeTagger account to work? - I'm self hosting it, it's open source.
recording the time in a note: could be, but my time would be decentralized in notes (reporting and current status could be hard to get) and sync with other system (witch I need to track other stuff) brings conflicts and, in this case, non performant queries maybe. So I followed this path
For your usage, it definitely makes sense. What I have in mind is a plugin that would create for example one notebook per project, then inside notes with lists of start time/ end time to keep track of time for that project.
I don't understand how to use the tt,tf prefixes in tags.
I've tried tt.tag1 label and it works like in example, but I don't know for what to use '.tag1' it in timetagger, and it push #tt label too. I've tried tt#mytag and it introduces #mytag, but #tt is introduced too.
Can you explain the use of this? What I'm missing?
Hi Kinu! Honestly I haven't noticed that in the example and I'm using it with "_" instead of "." (you can change prefixes in the plugin's options) and there is the problem. I think TimeTagger doesn't support "." in tags so it only takes the first part.
#tt.tag1 tags#tt #tt_tag1tags#tt_tag1as expected
I think I will replace "." with "_" before pushing to TimeTagger and add and option to remove prefix before pushing. Do you thing it will works for you ?
I will take a look at the other idea, the main problem there is the way to configure the levels you want to ignore. It could be "skip the first X levels and the last Y levels", but I feel that more flexibility could be needed
Hello! Just to tell you that I'm using the plugin as is, and I'm really happy with it. It just work. I've simplified my GTD to just
And then set #personal and his #project to similar colors, and so on, and it's perfect for me now.
I'm not using tt labels by now, but the option to remove prefix could be a great value for the plugin.
I put in the note name the project status (or a main reminder) and a number for priority.
ej: 1. Project A (pending IT team)
I don't want this detail in TimeTagger.
So I clean it with this filter: \(.*\),^[0-9]\.\s* to get "Project A"
(It will remind you to start a new timer if you expend time in a note that is not currently running)
