What are you doing?

For customer “Dwight Shih”, project “weblog”, I am ranting.

I get it. People implement a time tracking system so that they can roll up activities for accounting purposes. But

  • Rolling up data is easy.
  • Collecting data to roll up is hard.

Customer, then project, then task may be the natural accounting hierarchy. That doesn’t mean that you have to make people enter data that way.
