Low priority but I had this with another time tracker and it was extremely helpful making sure my time was correct.
We have VOIP phones and on Zapier I have connected it to my phone account.
The phone has different events zaps can event off of- ring, answer, hang up
So what I did was create a new zap that when my phone rang it would start my time tracking with a default subject of "Answering Phone". When I hung up it would check if my time was tracking against that answering phone work item and if so stop the timer. If my time was being tracked against a different work item it would not stop the timer. It knew that while on the phone I had changed the work item myself to something related to the person that called me like "Service Billable - Customer XYZ"
So how did this help me? If I got multiple phone calls a day and was too busy to track my time all I had to do was look at all the events on my timesheet and simply change the work item from "answering phone" to the work item required. Previous to that I would have to open my VOIP log and add the time event.
It doesn't seem like much but it was a pretty amazing time saver. One click, 5 seconds instead of 10-20 different operations for 20 seconds per. For me it's all about efficiency.
As I had this working before I would be willing to be a beta tester if required.
