This page contains useful advices and tips for those users who want to gain maximum from
Rachota tool. If you belong to such folks please read the following suggestions:
Do not add tasks that repeat every day or week manually to the plan.
Register them in Settings dialog instead.
Think over what granularity you are interested in. If some
task usually takes several minutes or you have no idea how long it will last, add it to
the plan. Avoid creating tasks like
Working on Project A
as you could tend to include directly unrelated works in such high level tasks. It's
better to create more separate tasks that Project A consists of and use for example
Project_A in Keyword of these tasks.
Early task switching
It is very important to bear in mind to switch to appropriate
task before you actually start working on it in reality. This also includes beginning of the
day so that Rachota records correct time when you started to work.
If you want to see different columns in your day plan, click the
button above the horizontal scrollbar of the table. It allows to select which columns are visible.
If you want to sort tasks by values in certain column, simply click the column header. Click it
once more if you want the oposite order.
If you moved in time to take a look at some day in the past or future and want to get to current day,
click the date textfield. Day view will quickly move back to today.
In order to quickly start working on a task, just double click it in the plan.
All components (buttons, menus, checkboxes etc.) have tooltips and shortcuts assigned
for your convenience. Just point at any component with the mouse to see it.
