You can backdate the start time when tracking an interval. This happens a lot, because it is very common to forget to start tracking time. Here are some different ways to do that:
$ timew There is no active time tracking. $ timew start 3pm 'Read chapter 12' Tracking Started 2016-06-15T15:00:00 Current 17:37:22 Total 2:37:22 $ timew cancel Canceled active time tracking. $ timew start 90mins ago 'Read chapter 12' Tracking Started 2016-06-15T16:07:33 Current 17:37:33 Total 1:30:00 $
This works the same way for the
Again, it is very common to forget to also stop the clock.
This is what makes time tracking difficult - everything needs to be mutable.
$ timew Tracking Started 2016-06-15T16:14:27 Current 17:44:32 Total 1:30:05 $ timew stop 10mins ago Recorded Started 2016-06-15T16:14:27 Ended 17:34:39 Total 1:20:12 $
If you forgot to change your current activity in the past, you can use the
start command with a date:
$ timew Tracking bar Started 2016-07-03T11:00:00 Current 21:17:44 Total 10:17:44 $ timew start 3hours ago foo Recorded bar Started 2016-07-03T11:00:00 Ended 18:18:33 Total 7:18:33 Tracking foo Started 2016-07-03T18:18:33 Current 21:18:33 Total 3:00:00
This command stops the currently tracked interval at the date/time given to the
start command and starts the new interval at the same time, thus sparing you one
Note that unlike Taskwarrior,
3pm refers to the most recent 3pm in the past, not in the future.
This is because Timewarrior focuses on accurately recording time already spent, whereas Taskwarrior looks forward to work that is not yet done.
