Time tracking

DevPlanner supports two modes of time tracking: manual and automatic. Manual time tracking is a same as planning, simply drag a task and drop it to the daily plan. Automatic tracking performed in real time using start and stop tracking buttons.

To note the time for specific task select it and invoke Start tracking command from menu Item or tool bar . This action will insert new plan entry with specific icon and will start clocking. Stop the timer when work finished using Stop tracking command or simply select another task.

For an existing plan entry time tracking even simpler: press Start button to set current time as plan entry starting or press Stop button to set stopping time.

Prolong previous plan entry when tracking started feature.

There is an optional feature to prolong time of selected previous plan entry. For example, You have two tasks: Task 1 and Task 2. You scheduled Task 1 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM. But it takes little more time than expected, to 11:30 AM. To set actual time automatically select the plan entry and start tracking time for another task from the Tasks list pane.

To activate this feature click Options from the Tools menu. On the Plan tab set "Prolong previous plan entry when tracking started" checked.
