Hi, Could someone fill me in on your process for clocking in things after the fact? I've been trying to get into to clocking, but, especially at home, I don't return to my computer in between every different thing. Instead, I stop at it when I get a pause and try to fill in what I've been doing. So far, this has been something akin to: - create a new sub-headline and call it what I was doing - C-c C-c to tag it - C-c C-x C-i followed by C-c C-x C-o to create a clocked time stamps - Manually edit the times - C-c C-c to update the count This gets quite tedious when adding several things. I have to expand the logbook, and then fiddle with the times. Could there be (or is there already) a function that might act like the date selection screen for clocking? I looked at the completion list for org-clock-* commands and none of them looked promising. I could envision something like: - M-x org-clock-in-at-time - Minibuffer presents date selection, you select date just like for timestamps - Minibuffer requests time in form HH:MM and you can type it in Same type of function for clocking out. This would *vastly* simplify how I end up clocking. I'm absolutely open to suggestions from others on how you deal with this. Perhaps this is an opportunity to learn about how the *experts* access some functionality I'm currently unaware of! Thanks, John
