Activity & Expense Tracker

Activity & Expense Tracker's To Do List

The To Do List window makes it easy to: see what Activities need to be done; Schedule a time to start or complete: the Estimated Time for the Activity; and to switch between various Activities during the day.

You can use the To Do List button (1) to add Activity Timers to the To Do List window where you can specify a Scheduled Time (6) to start or a Deadline (8) for an Activity. If you click the To Do List button on a record that already has a timer in the To Do List window then the To Do List window will just open.

The To Do List window makes it easy to see what Activities need to be done, the Estimated Time (6) for completion and to switch between various Activities during the day. The Activity (4) and Client/Project (5) combination are included in each Timer.

When you click the Stop button for a timer in the To Do List window a blue checkmark (12) will appear that indicates the Activity is done for the day. Click the red and white X button (11) to remove the timer from the To Do List window.

Until the blue checkmark appears for a Timer, the difference between the Estimated Time and the elapsed time (3) (or Total Time) will be added to the Estimated Time Remaining field (2) at the top of the To Do List window. If the elapsed time is greater than the Estimated Time, the Estimated Time will turn red and the Estimated Time Remaining field will not be changed.

Clicking the View button (10) for a timer will take you to the corresponding A&E Tracker record. If A&E Tracker is already on that record, the button may appear to do nothing. Starting or Stopping a Timer also takes you to the A&E Tracker record for that Timer.

Timers can only be added for the current Date. If you click the To Do List button (1) on a record for another date, you will be asked if you want to duplicate that record and add the new Activity Timer to the To Do List window. If you click on a Timer in the To Do List window for a record for another date, you will be asked if you want to duplicate the A&E Tracker record for that Activity.

When the current time is greater than a Scheduled Time the Scheduled Time field will turn yellow as a warning. When the Deadline option is enable, the Scheduled Time field will turn red after the Scheduled Time as a warning.

If you enable the Alarm option (9) for a Timer you will get a message when the Scheduled Time has passed (if the timer is not running) or when you need to start an Activity if the Deadline option (8) is enabled.

You can have up to 12 timers active in the To Do List window.
