Thanks for looking at Track2TimeIt. This PDA program allows
you to easily log how much time you spend on various activities.
Events are easily timed with a single pen-click. Use it as a consultant's
timer for your business or figure out how long you really spend
in front of the TV. Your timing data is available for visual inspection
in tabular and graphical form, and can even be exported outside
the program; ideal for logging billable hours for submission to
your clients. Track2TimeIt will simultaneously track any number

About - General program information.
The following example describe program operation:

- Enter a name which describes the activity, for example, consulting
- Press the Timer button to start timing...
It's that simple. You are now recording your consulting hours.
At the end of your work, press the Timer button again to
stop timing and record your data. If you restart the timer (eg,
after a lunch break), the additional time recorded will be cumulative.
After you have more than 1 day's data, press the Graph tab
to see a plot of your data. Even while a timer is running, you may
create new databases and Track2TimeIt will record as many independent
activities as desired.
You must have SuperWaba installed on your PDA for this program to
execute. Executables for SuperWaba v2.2 are included and should
be hotsync'd to your PDA:
The Track2TimeIt program is contained in the following files which
must also be loaded on your PDA:
Once the above programs are loaded, just run Track2TimeIt like
any other PDA program.
- The progam autoscales the Y axis. For convenience, you may wish
to force the display to a scale range by entering a dummy datapoint.
For example, if your data is in the range 132-396, you can force
the Y-scale to 0-400 simply by entering two dummy data points:
One which is 0 and the other which is 400.
- To change a value, delete the data for that point and create
another value for that date.
- To change or delete many values you may want to export your
data, edit it, and then re-import it.
- Remember that values entered for the same date are cumulative.
- Before you import data, try exporting a database. This will
allow you to see the format of Track2TimeIt data in the memopad.
Remove Track2TimeIt by using the "delete" option from
the launcher. All related datafiles will also be removed. Delete
SuperWaba the same way.
Much thanks to those who have provided food for thought regarding
this project. Special thanks, also, to Guilherme Hazan for excellent
help with SuperWaba.
