Currently there seem to be not much interests into such a plugin. The plugin development is on hold as long as we do not get any feedback.


This little plugin is to provide simple logging and reporting for project efforts. The project or team will be specified by syntax line. The UI recognices currently logged in user and assumes that this one reports its efforts. It is displayed as first line of the form. Some values to be given. The date where the efforts will relate to can be entered manually or easily by use of the integrated calendar. Next a pre-configured task type to be selected from the drop-down box. The textarea below should be used to provide a decriptive comment according the work done related to the selected task type and date. Finally the user has to enter the efforts as hour and minutes into the related fields. All form fields will be checked by pressing the submit button before they wll be transferred to the server. It alerts you in the event a value was not provided.

Not logged in users are not allowed to report. The effort records will be stored into a file defined by the team parameter of syntax. The file is located inside the folder data/xstt.

The output is a list of all records of all users logged to the project/team file.

Feature potentials (upon request):

  1. editable list → login and test it
  2. sortable list → login and test it
  3. resizable columns → login and test it

  14. report efforts for a specific user according defined time period
  15. report efforts for a specific user and task according defined time period
  16. export data to file for further use within other applications (e.g. as csv for MS Excel)
