What are my priority jobs for today ?
How can I spend less time on routine adminstrative tasks ?
Taglog is written to answer these questions.
The current version is 0.2.4
Taglog provides an electronic workbook, combining logging of time to projects with keeping a detailed diary of what you actually do. Individual work elements can be tagged by project, allowing you to produce, for example, a record of work on one particular project, even if your time is spread across a number of projects.
Work items can also be tagged by activity type - for example meeting, phone, programming etc - allowing you to analyse where your time is going by activity. Note that this activity type is orthogonal to the project axis, so that - for example - user support would be a project - in the larger sense WHAT you are doing - and phone calls to users - HOW you are doing it - would be the activity type.

Taglog is what is known as Free Software, or Open Source.
Taglog is written in the TCL scripting language, which is available for Unix, Windows and Macintosh systems. See http://www.tcl.tk - the TCL developer Exchange for more information - including downloading TCL for free.
Taglog is in regular use on Unix (Linux and Solaris) and Windows systems.
The installation instructions are included with the distribution, but are available here for convenience.
Windows users will need a program, such as Powerarchiver or pkzip to unpack the distribution. Alternatively you could install Cygwin which gives you many powerful Unix tools for free on your Windows PC.
If you are not a TCL programmer, but can write in a language for which taglog internationalisation is not yet available you can still help, as described in the Internationalisation Guide or translating this page, or the tutorial
