LazyCure 3.7 — a bunch of new features

Congratulate you on new wave of quality and simplicity which LazyCure 3.7 brings to us! It contains a set of improvements and new features, comparing with 3.6 version.

New features:

  • Subtasks. Select menu Show->Task Manager and create a tree of projects/tasks/tags/areas which you want to use for grouping activities during analyzing your time logs.
  • Possibility to customize hot-key. Now you can use not only Ctrl+F12 but any imaginary combination of keys in order to activate LazyCure window and fix activity switch. Works only in Windows, but if you know how to do it in other OS, I’m appreciate your comment. In order to customize hot-key, go to menu Options and press button ‘…’ under ‘Hot key to activate:’ text.
  • Split activities by comma (‘,’). This is the feature which I love very much, because it helps me to save a lot of seconds and make time logging process more enjoying. When I forgot or didn’t have an ability to mark activity switch, I specify all activities in one ‘Now you..’ text field via comma and press ‘Done!’ After that the magic happens — each activity appears in time log separately with time equally spitted up. It is not too much accurate, but if I don’t remember actual time of switch activities (or even if I was doing all of them simultaneously), it is accurate enough. And more important — it is very fast.
  • Possibility to disable option to switch time log at midnight. Automatic switch time log at midnight is a useful feature, if you practice continuous time logging, like Russian scientist Lyubishchev. But if you log only the current day and it ends after midnight, it is useful to turn off automatic switch at midnight in order to keep all activities in one place. So now we have an option.
  • Possibility to close TimeLog Editor, Summary, Task Manager by ESC. All for the sake of speed :).
  • Possibility to copy data via context menu from Time Log Editor and Activities Summary. Possibility to copy data via Ctrl+C and paste, e.g. in Excel, was always in LazyCure, but nobody knew about it. Now it is possible to do via context menu + small additional improvements of data representation in clipboard.
  • Possibility to rename activities on Activities Summary. The feature I was dream about for years. Record activity with mistake, record the same activity without mistake, then go to activities summary, rename misprinted activity — and see the magic.

+ fixes of the following bugs:

  • An exception when invalid time is entered on Efficiency tab.
  • An exception when activity is longer than 64 symbols on mouse over tray icon.
  • Post to twitter is not working.

Quality of LazyCure 3.7 release is proved by 303 green unit tests.

Enjoy!

    For Russian guys and venture especially ;):
    Пока можно через Google Translate — http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Flazycure.com%2Fblog%2Flazycure-37-a-bunch-of-new-features&sl=en&tl=ru — довольно весело 🙂

    Здравствуйте.
    Спасибо за отличную фришную программу! Я был приятно удивлен ее весом и возможностями!
    Единственно в чем я не разобрался, так это в том, как заставить программу отслеживать время по заданиям из таск менеджера.
    Если Вас не затруднит, объясните пожалуйста. Можно е-мэйлом.
    Заранее благодарю.
    С уважением, Константин

  5. Mikhail Subach говорит:

    Константин,
    Отслеживание времени по заданиям из таск-менеджера делается следующим образом:
    1. В течении для репортаешь просто выполняемые активности
    2. В конце для заходишь на Activities Summary и в колонке таск проставляешь таски, к которым относятся активности через двойной клик по ячеке.
    3. Заходишь на закладку Tasks Summary — находишь там отчёт о затраченном времени по таскам.

    Здесь можно более подробно ознакомится с возможностями — http://lifeidea.org/2009/06/what-lazycure-can-do/.

    Желаю удачи в личном развитии!

    What is absolutely essential for the TM program is analysis of the time recorded. I found absolutely no tools for this (efficiency coefficient is quite contradictory and not always useful function). It is necessary to analyse time spent for certain periods (e.g. determine the time losses or work time for the past month, last 5 days, last year, etc.; see the dynamics of time losses reduction or increase). A free tool AceMoney can give an example of this, in reports section. It is good to have analytics both in graphs and in lines.
    Of course it should be available from the main menu, not by opening files from folders (as it is now).
    Otherwise it is difficult to use it as a real TM tool.
    Anyway thanks for the program!

    Another curcial feature — is a version for Windows Mobiles and other portable devices. With PC syncronysation, of course. This will make coverage absolute and more convenient (paper is another time-waster and out of date) and will make LazyCure a leader among similar programs.

  8. Уведомление: Для чего можно использовать LazyCure?

  9. Ольга говорит:

    Друзья! очень интересная и важная для меня тема, контроль своего кпд во времени. Но, я совершнный (!) чайник в компьютерных программах. Кто-то может мне помочь? Разъяснить как установить эту замечательную программу и как ей пользоваться. Можно на емайл. Буду очень признательна!
