I use GQueues & Google Calendar as part of my organizational and time tracking work flow. Currently my tasks are added to my calendar from GQueues and I move them to a Work Completed Calendar after they are complete, updating duration as necessary. Zapier can enter the length\duration of the calendar item as a beeminder datapoint. It works great if you’re a paying zapier user or will be entering fewer than 80 tasks per month. IFTTT, my free service of choice, unfortunately does not appear to have that capability. Is there any way to get IFTTT to submit the duration of a calender entry to beeminder? Anyone aware of an easy work around? Any suggestions on an improved method to get hours from google calendar to Beeminder?
I would also be open to altering my work flow. My requirements are that I can enter tasks with a duration that will appear on my calendar. And that I can finalize the time I spend on a task before it is submitted to Beeminder. I was originally inspired by pomodors to track my time and remind me to take breaks, but now I’m using a handheld Gymboss miniMax interval timer that I can sit in front of me, take anywhere, and track my hours.
