Hey to all and thanks for the great work!
Org-mode is impressing and of large value to me.
I have severel ideas about new features that I want to share. My knowledge
with lisp and the coding of the org-structure is bad so far, so I can't try
to contribute a patch.
* 1. *Alias - Trees*
When I work on projects, I often want to /reference to a certain other
heading/. It would be great to do this not just with links, but /with an
I think of trees, that show up and can be in the current tree as if they
were a subtree, but really are at another position in the current or a
This concept would also allow seperate versioning and merging of external
generated content into the current file. ( I e.g. think of summaries of
text in the scientific context. )
* 2. More flexible *Colouring for categories*, tags, ... .
It would be great to have the /opportunity to define individual faces for
different categories, tags/ , ... .
* 3. Implementation of *hourly/minutely reference*.
It would be useful to be able to schedule something to repeat every 12 or 6
hours or in 22 minutes. It would also be useful, to have the opportunity to
associate asynchronous shell scripts with individual scheduled events.
* 4. *Exclude certain days from Timeline*
The opportunity to /give/ whole days the status // . That would mean, that when I fire up the /Timeline/ for a
current file (L), certain days are /show/ with a message "/day is planned
for project /. in a certain project specific project.
It would also be useful to have a keycommand in the /Timeline/ to /switch
other files on showing them in gray/.
* 5. *Manually timeclock certain Headings*
I would love to have a commands that can change the clocktime of not
running headings or insert new clocktimes into the current heading. E.g.
Change the clocktime of :
(s) change last timeclock and keep the Start time. -> How
long did it last?
(e) change last timeclock and keep the End time -> How
long did it last?
(# C-u offset to change the #n last timeclock)
(a) add new timeclock -> Ask
for Start and End. (with opportunity to specify the END relative)
* 6. *Expand timestamps to include locations*
Special timestamp-commands that also ask for places and presents a list of
all places of all projects to choose from.
* 7. *More complex timeclock-reports*
Is anyone working on a more comprehensive way of giving visual feedback and
analysing the data of the timeclock-feature. (What have I done the last
month? How many time has gone to which project / etc.) I am a relatively
R]] user and could contribute code for analysis of time usage / plotting
complex more diagrams in R. Allthough I am not very used to the export
mechanisms in Orgmode. Does anyone like to cooperate?
Once again: thanks for doing it!
