RT Task Timer

Hi,

Just curious if anyone knows of an extension to RT that allows automated
task timing? Some kind of ‘button’ that, when clicked, would start
timing a task and then when you click it a second time it logs the time
against a specific task.

Anyone?

Regards,

Tom

Hi Tom,
i remember an addon at bps svn called RT-Extension-TimedWork but i can’t find it at BPS Git or Cpan at the moment.

Think this is the addon you are looking for. We check at home tonight for it.

Thank you gentlemen!

I’m not sure if this is exactly what I was thinking but it’s worth a
look. I will make an attempt at this code integration to my RT site
after I’ve finished with another website upgrade I’m doing and let you
know how I get on.

Has anyone else tried this or similar code?

Regards,

Actually, looking at the code and the steps involved, it’s a fairly
straight forward modification.

I’ve implemented the changes but it’s not really what I was
expecting/wanting. (It has given me a bit of an insight into the
internal workings of RT, though). The code seems to only give me a
reporting feature.

What I’m actually looking for is a ‘clickable’ button that will
start/stop a timer. The timer will automatically log time against a
ticket I’m working on.

A few years ago, I used a bespoke implementation (java server pages) of
a task oriented project management system that had exactly this feature.
It worked a treat and saved a lot of time manually tracking the time
worked on a task and then filling in the box with the time.

Has anyone tried implementing such a feature and failed? I’d be
interested in making an attempt at this but I have very little
understanding of RT and my perl skills are quite limited.

Best Regards,

It sounds like what you want is to make a variation of the Ticket display page with a clickable image which kicks off an ajax event. The first time the button changes to “Go!” and logs a time event, the second time it changes to “Done!”, logs a second time event, figures out the difference between the times, and uses REST, or some other interface, to update the ticket.

If I didn’t already have a job…
