Usage

  • When you execute the application for the first time, it will register your application on our website. Registration process is an automated process and does not require your inputs. It does not send any vital information such as your username, passwords, etc.
  • When you start your day, first click on ‘Start Day’ button. This shows you other options like:
    • Project: Project indicates first-level of category or Major-task that you are working on. It can indicate a client, an account, a product on which you are working on. Initially, there are no projects fed into the system.
    • Category: Category indicates the nature of the work. It can development, training, testing, meeting, conference, management, etc. The application comes with some predefined categories so that you can select them.
    • Assigned By: Fill up the task assigner in this box.
    • Description: This needs no description
  • Now, click on Start button. This will minimize the application to System Tray. This also means that you have started working on the task you have mentioned in the description.
  • The application will pop-up a reminder at the right-bottom of your screen. If you wish to change the task, click on it; else ignore it. The application is smart to understand that you prefer to continue working on same task, if you have ignored the reminder.
  • If you want to change the task in between the duration of 2 reminders, click on the myTracker icon in the System Tray
