Why is this relevant?
Imagine you’re working on a task that goes over several hours. E.g. Software development.
Now, while doing this, your phone rings, you receive an important EMail or you just go to lunch and - because this urgent stuff is urgent - you don’t stop the time records, so you have one task during the day.
It’s simple to add e.g. 3 PhoneCalls from your call List, but now you have these phone calls always in parallel with the ongoing task.
What is the current situation?
So far, I have to:
- Note the stoptime of the long task somwhere (e.g. 15:00)
- Cut the long task to fit the first “parallel” task (e.g. from 15:00 to 11:30 because by 11:30 your phone rang and you had to have this call until 11:45)
- Add a new task (duplicate) of the first task from 11:45 to 12:30 when you actually went out for lunch
- Add a new task (duplicate) for the first task from 13:20 to 15:00)
What should be the solution?
I would like to be able to cut the longest task (or tasks) that are intercepted by shorter tasks. It could be an additional Bulk-Edit Option “Split long tasks”
