Lack of documentation. Not clear how to use it.

Sure, the user interface looks nice. But this plugin lacks the most basic of functions to be actually useful as there are: – a way to export to CSV – A way to change the default settings for the sheet (Logging what you’ve done the previous week or month and not just the next 10 days) – A way to lock users out of the report screen. It’s none of their business – A way to limit the usage to certain roles or users. – A way to remove or rename a status – A way to change the resolution. In the free version it’s an hour, in the PRO (oh well) version it’s 5 minutes. What I would need is 30 min. Al in all 30 dollars is way overpriced for what the pro version delivers. The free version for now only shows posibilities and missed chances. All that said and done, and as I hope for future developments on this plugin, I’ve written my own export to CSV plugin as I needed some custom output anyhow. To support this plugin I have a Dutch translation available. If you would let me know where I can send it, it’s all yours to include.

OK, so had to change my 5* rating because although it showed promise the fact is it doesn’t fulfill its objectives at this stage of its development (see my Support posts). It is not clear when the bugs will be fixed. Originally I wrote (giving it 5*): “I’m going to kick this off… For my particular purpose this is very handy. It is well constructed but most importantly it is very quick and easy to select the times one worked, identify the tasks and the reports are well laid out. I hope more people will download it and find it useful and that development will continue.”
