    Hi Magnus! I'm curious as to why you don't want to use the tracking feature. Would you mind detailing how you and your team use the tool and why that feature doesn't work for you?

    Sure, here are some thoughts. 
     
    We work as consultants and get paid by every started hour. So if we track 40 min - we log 1 hour. So we would need some kind of round up fuction. 
     
    When tracking we need to write the comment before tracking. In the best of worlds you would totally know exact what to do before starting to work but depending on the project that might be difficult to know. You don't really know if you end up reading up on some legacy API we are working with or if you could go direct to implementation. So it make more sense for us to write the log after the work is done - kind of "I did this" instead of "I will probably do this". 
     
    When I start a tracking (in the sprint view) I fail to se that the racking is actually running. I'm only able to see that inside the 7pacemodule. 
     
    To easy to forget. We have a busy work place and working in small teams - so If you help out your college (Teams call or whatever) you'd need to do a lot of manual editing. With the tracking feature we would have to pause the one we are tracking - start another tracking - and then switch back after the Teams call. Right now - we could just remember that we had that 30 min conversation with our team member and log that accordingly on two tasks. 
     
    I guess we are also used to forst work - and then log what you did. Write your comments and sort of finish upp your hours when you leave for lunch and when you go home. 
     
    If your tasks are not 100% INVEST you could potentially end up working om many tasks at the same time. When you code I mean. You start working and then you fixed something that was supposed to be included in another task. So then you end up having worked 1 hour on Task 1, and 3 hours on Task 2. But you had the tracking going on Task 2 the whole time. Then you have to do a manual adjustement to get remaning hours correct. I'ts just more convenient to add your hours afterwards since reallity is not that traight forward all the time. 
     
    I'ts also kind of a stress moment knowing you have this ticking clock going on (even if we get pain when Its ticking). 
     
    Hope that claryfies!
