I noticed only recently that Aaron has moved the code repository to a new place which is one of the reasons why most of my fixes are not available in more recent stable releases. Unfortunately he forgot to tell me about it. So I will hook up with him in order to get my stuff in sync with the main codebase so that eventually my implemented new features show up in the official stable release.
Due to popular demand I have added a configuration section for configuring the auto CSV export. You can also specify the separator character. Please note that the “…” button is not yet connected and you have to enter the path to the autosave file manually.
Let me know if you have problems.
Hey this is a new release of TimeTracker for OSX. It adds a small feature requested by Gadz where it shows the currently selected Project/Task as a tooltip (for the users who have the window mostly closed).
Hope you like it.
this is a small bugfix release for TimeTracker beta. If you dont know what this special beta does, please read the previous posts. This release fixes a problem where clicking on the status bar when no project was selected was causing a crash.
Another small improvment to the beta 4. This version will now show the idle notification in an AlertSheet rather than an own window. The old version had the problem that sometimes the window would get lost when using Spaces in Mac OS 10.5 (which drove me crazy).
Hope you like it.
This is a microupdate which removes the logging from the system console. No other changes (so if you dont look into your console so often, you can safely ignore this update).
Hey, this is a bugfix release of the latest TimeTracker for OSX. Please be sure to read the previous blog posts about it to know what it will do to your old settings files, etc.
Changes in this version
* changed NIB file format to 10.4 (might fix issues reported by some users)
* fixed a bug where workperiods (time records) in the right hand pane were not displayed when you had a filter on and had the “All Projects” item selected.
At the moment I dont have a 10.4 machine which is why I cannot really test it on 10.4 (although XCode says everything should be fine :). So if you are running 10.4 and have issues where time records dont appear properly please check the console for anything suspicious and mail me your findings (a screenshot and an exact description of what you were doing would be very helpful).
Hey, this is the latest version of TimeTracker. Please be sure to read the previous blogposts about this version regarding backing up your old data.
This version willi now properly read old TimeTracker data files in <$HOME>/Library/Preferences/com.slooz.timetracker but the new files will be stored to <$HOME>/Library/Application Support/TimeTracker/data.plist.
Be aware that the old file will only read if the new file version is not available (initial data migration) subsequently the old com.slooz.timetracker file will simply remain untouched (it still does not hurt to make a backup in case you are not using time machine).
Another added feature is the ability to filter also in the comments. Just enter a text and only matching entries with matching comments will be displayed. Also note that all the totals (on the other panes) are properly updated 🙂
Hey this is a new version of the TimeTracker. I have been trying to get the code integrated into the official source tree but so far Aaron seems to be very busy and we havent made much progress. So please read the previous post about my version of TimeTracker and some of its enhancements.
This new version adds
- Icons from Esteban Reyes (thanks a lot!)
- Day/Week/Month filter mode is now sticky (if you change the start date the filter will be immediately applied)
- Compatible with OSX 10.4 Universal Binary (previous versions were Leopard only)
please read the first timeTracker post as well for instructions about backing up the data file
At the moment I am getting involved in a little program called
TimeTracker. Back when I was mainly using Windows I used TimeTracker
which I liked quite a lot. The Mac version has similar features but
lacks filtering and reporting features which I am in the process of
Most of the features I need already work and I am in conversation with the project lead to get them integrated.
For the not so faint of heart here is a recent build which has these additional features
- All Projects/ All Tasks view
mode (Day / Week / Month). Pick a date first and then click on day /
week / month to filter the records accordingly. In combination with the
AllProjects view this is a powerful reporting tool as also all sums
will be properly updated
- preliminary csv export. Upon app close
all records will be also saved into <$HOME>/times.csv (now that
the filtering and summary views work, I hardly use it anymore)
- ability to modify the parent task / project of an entry (no more delete and create new)
the idle watcher to also be invoked when computer goes on standby (very
nice for laptop users, just close the lid and timetracker will notice
that you dont work anymore)
- highlighting of the current running time record (grey font) to immediately see which one is the active one.
- added a “comment” field that allows you to write a descriptive comment of what you did.
The storage format of my version is not compatible with the currently
available version from googleCode. So if you got valuable data already,
be sure to backup:
before you try my version!
