Job Numbers

I've been using Timelime for a few months now and like it simplicity. It's definitely taken over my paper diary. One feature though would be to have a field/column for "job number". This would help when exporting my timeline data and then importing into my jobbing app. Do you have any plans or other requests for this?

    Hi John,

    Thank you very much for using Timelime!
    At the moment I don't have any other requests for this feature or plans to add it. But I will consider it.

    Could you please describe your process further? What kind of jobbing app are you using. Are you exporting CSV data from Timelime?
    Putting numbers in front of your task names (like "1 - Task A", "2 - Task B") in Timelime is not sufficient?

    Thanks Niko for the prompt reply.

    At the moment my time is divided between specific jobs for clients. These jobs have a unique identifier created with a "client code and job number month" ie: EGE1015.
    Not all job numbers are seven characters long though. I am using Timelime to log my hours spent and entering these hours into the system manually.
    I was looking for a way to export the CSV from Timelime to have a job number field, notes field and time spent field. BASICALLY.
    The unique job number allows my job system to apply the time to the specific job.

    There may be another way to do what I'm trying to achieve. You may have some thoughts.
