As a regular freelance guy I want to easily track the client work/project I am focused on so that I can make my life easier (and charge for stuff I do)
I like user stories alright but also prefer this format:
When I open a project or client related tab in Station, I want [Station’s window title] to include basic information (title of the active app or tab, url) so that I can use my very neat and useful time tracker app.
At the moment I am using a time & project tracker called Qbserve which allows me to automatically log time on specific projects using a set of rules. I can track time for a project when the tracker detects a document path or browser address that contains a specific string (like a project name) that I have set up.
For instance, imagine I’m working on a Client_From_Hell.sketch file in Sketch. The tracker knows I’m being productive (Sketch is set as a productive app) and also that I’m working for my Client From Hell client as the filename is included in Sketch’s information.
I’d love it if Station was able to do that as well. So instead of simply returning “Station” as the window title, include the app/tab/file path or url that contains valuable information for time tracking apps.
IMPACT FOR ME
The main advantages for me are:
- Being able to use that very neat tracker (and maybe more software to come in Station)
- Being able to use Station
