Native Time Tracking

I know this question has come up, but I just wanted to add some more fuel to the fire...

It's a bit of a pain to have to use 3 separate web services / applications to fully keep track of tasks and time management.

Toggl is cool ... and Zapier is somewhat useful, but not really. But what really needs to be happening here is Todoist (and Wedoist) needs native time tracking for tasks. And it should be at the task level, not tied to a project... simply because not all tasks are a part of a project.

Anyway, I really hope that this feature is in the pipeline.

Hi Devin,

When features are added, we make sure that it's not going to make the whole app more complex to use. A time tracking may be integrated in the tasks and if it's not done properly, it could disrupt the way you use the app. Like with most features, we can't disclose the features we're working on or when they'll be released but I can assure that if we have any news in this front, we will let you know.

Best Regards,

Clyde

I support idea of time tracking. Something like in toggl would be cool. 'Just' a play and stop button and some 'simple' statistics.

Time Tracking would be fabulous! I hate having to bounce between different apps for time tracking / project management.

I would love to have time tracking tied to either a project or a task. This could be toggled on or off so people who do not want / need the added functionality do not have to deal with the added complexity.

Simply adding a simple actionable icon next to project or tasks that will start a timer and log the data would be so useful.

Hi,

Though this is not a "native" implementation, that is it was developed by Toggl and not us, you can now do time tracking for your tasks in Todoist. :-)

I just signed up for Todoist and I must say it looks pretty usefull. However I'm not even going to bother trying it if time tracking is not coming :) Any news?

I don't use Chrome so the extension is useless for me.

Definitely second (or ninth, tenth) the request for time tracking. Whilst the button extension for Toggl is a 3rd party step forward, I personally prefer the OSX app, and of course it doesn't register the button there.

Initial thoughts - Just a simple timer with a chess clock functionality would be great - small clock icon, one click to start, second click to stop. When task is completed, total time is displayed on hover over clock icon?

Great work to this point Todoist, thanks! (+1)

I was pretty excited for the toggl integration and switched from the osx app to the browser plugin to try it out. however, from what I experienced it just moves over task names to toggl. any of the really useful stuff (what project is the task in?, integration in the karma review section) would work better/only in the native environment.
looking forward to that, whenever it comes!
and yes, great work so far!
