Tracking

The core idea behind tracklr is to use iCalendar feeds for time tracking progress.

Usaul usage would be to track progress of work for clients, or personal projects, activities, etc.

Keywords to use in event summaries:

  • @context - use @ to identify context of events eg. @clients, @garden, @outdoors.
  • +project - use + to identify projects.
  • #tag - use # for tagging ie. categorization of work.
  • !user - use ! to identify calendar users if iCalendar feed is used by multiple users.

Options

  1. One calendar to rule them all

    Pros:

    • simple
    • all @clients +projects #in-one-place

    • not good multi users usage

  1. One calendar per @client

    Pros:

  1. One calendar per @client per !user

    Pros:

    • clear who did what for whom

    Cons:

    • too complex
