I was wondering if it’s possible to convert time entries to tasks. These time entries have been created using the Firefox plugin extension (ie, by filling the description “What are you working on” and then selecting a pre-existing clockify project). So far the plugin enables me to create new projects either manually or by letting integrations to create them. However, this is not the case for tasks. Does this feature already exist? If yes, what are the necessary steps to create a task from a time entry?
At the moment, if I go to the Project’s Status panel, these time entries are grouped under the
Tasks with the name “Without task”; and, under
Assignees it reads “anyone”. It seems a bit odd because the time entries are created while i’m logged in. I would assume that, by default, a time entry would be assigned to me.
Further, on the Project’s Task panel this task “Without task” does not show up – which i sort of understand because “Without task” is the name for an “umbrella” task that aggregates all the time tracked that wasn’t spent on pre-existing tasks.
I think that manually creating new tasks on the fly from the plugin would be a great feature to have, if it doesn’t exist yet; or, if it’s not possible, converting time entries to tasks from the Reports page could be another alternative.
By the way, using the plugin I time-tracked a card from a Trello board, and while clockify created a new project mapping the board’s name, it did not create a task mapping the card’s name. From the docs, it would seem that this was an existing feature, but perhaps I’m wrong … or perhaps it’s a bug?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
