Toggl is an online time tracking software that can be used to track the time spent on different projects. It is a project management top that offers automated time tracking and reporting features of various formats. The features include support for multiple-projects with unlimited users, automated reports, invoice generation and time entry approval, time reports and analytics. A simple project can be created in just a few minutes by going to the website and creating an account. After creating an account, click on Projects > New Project. This will take you to the project creation page. In this page, you can give your project a name, select the type of project (time based or expense based), set a description and add some tags. You can also choose whether you want to charge clients per hour or per minute.
You will also be given options about how to bill for your time. The first option is to charge hourly. When you charge per hour, your total time will be divided by the total number of hours you have worked in the past and the result will be billed per hour. If your billing rate is $100 per hour, and you have worked for 100 hours so far on this particular project, then each hour will cost your client $1.00. The second option is to charge per minute. Here, you will be charged at a fixed rate of $0.01 per minute and your total time will be converted into units of minutes and billed accordingly. For example, if your billing rate is $0.01 per minute, and you have worked for 5 minutes so far on this project, then each minute will cost your client $0.05.
In addition to these options, you will also be given an option of charging by the task. Your total time will be divided by the total number of tasks completed in the past and the result will be billed per task. For example, if your billing rate is $100 per hour and you have worked for 10 hours on this project, then each task will cost your client $10.00. Unlike the other two options, this option can be applied to both time based and expense based projects. If any of your options are fixed rates instead of percentages, then you can easily change that in the billing section later on.
The next step will be to add a new task by clicking on “+” button at the top right corner of your screen. This will take you to the task creation page where you can give your task a name, add a description and set its duration in days and start date/time and end date/time. You can also choose whether you want to create a milestone or not, choose an assignee, add tags and choose an owner as well as an approver for the task. Tasks can be created manually or imported from Excel spreadsheets or CSV files as well.
If you do not want to create an account yet, then you can use Toggl via their web application by logging in with Google, Facebook or Twitter accounts or by using their email address feature or by entering the URL of a specific project manually. Toggl also has native apps for Android and iOS mobile devices that allow users to track time on the go.
Miro is an open source desktop video player that allows users to play many different types of media files from internet servers such as YouTube, Vimeo and RTMP sources through magnet links as well as from local storage disks. It also supports subtitles for many different languages such as English, Spanish, Turkish and German along with automatic downloading subtitles for videos that do not have them present in their original format. Miro also has several plugins that can add extra functionality to your desktop media player such as integration with LastFM radio streaming service and with other Linux media players such as Rhythmbox and Banshee. Miro was created by Jamie Wilkinson in 2005 while he was still attending university to compete with commercial media players available at that time. Since its creation it has been downloaded over 15 million times via Sourceforge download center alone while several other websites such as SourceForge provide other download mirrors for Miro as well. Besides having several official releases during last 8 years, there have been several unofficial build versions made available by third parties for Windows operating system as well as for Linux distributions such as Ubuntu and Debian among others (http://www.mirovideoconverter.com/about/downloading-miro/. The latest release version of Miro is 3 beta 2.2 which was released in 2013 with several bug fixes and enhancements over previous 3 beta 1 version that was released back in 2012 (http://www.mirovideoconverter.com/about/downloading-miro/.
Toggl integration with Miro provides users with the ability to view their Toggl data inside their desktop media players instead of viewing them in a browser window like it used to happen before the integration took place between both applications. To enable Toggl integration with Miro, fplow these steps:
First, install Miro desktop application on your computer from https://www.mirovideoconverter.com/. Open Miro application on your computer and go to File > Preferences menu item. Click on the Plugins tab at the top of the window that opens up at this point. At the bottom of the window you will see an option labeled “Checkbox plugins” fplowed by a text area that reads “Search plugin directory for new plugins” (figure 1. Click on this part of the text area so that it turns blue in cpor as seen in figure 2 below:
Figure 1. The plugins tab which has not been selected yet Figure 2. The plugins tab after it has been selected Next, click on Install plugin button at bottom right corner of this window shown in figure 2 above and in figure 3 below:
Figure 3. The plugin installation window opened up by clicking on install plugin button After Toggl has been installed as a plugin for Miro, go back to preferences window again (File > Preferences menu item. but this time click on Advanced tab at top left corner of this window instead of plugins tab since the first one already contains our newly installed plugin (figure 4). Figure 4. The advanced tab After clicking on Advanced tab, it should look like figure 5 below. Figure 5. The advanced tab after scrpling down Finally, scrpl down until you find Togghl Integration option shown highlighted in blue cpor in figure 6 below. Figure 6. Scrpling down till finding Toggl Integration option Now click on Toggl Integration option highlighted above (figure 6. to enable it and start using it immediately without leaving this dialog box window (figure 7). Figure 7. Enabling Toggl Integration Once enabled, when you play any video file using Miro media player app on your computer then you should see your Toggl timer bars showing up inside Miro (figure 8). Figure 8. See your Toggl timer bars inside Miro Now when you pause or stop playing any video file using Miro then you should see an option that says “Add break” (figure 9. Clicking on this option will create a new break for this video file inside your Toggl account every time you pause or stop playing it. Figure 9. Create breaks every time you pause or stop playing a video file When creating new breaks in Toggl from within Miro desktop media player app then they get automatically linked together so that whenever any one of them gets changed then all others linked with it change too automatically (figure 10). Figure 10. New breaks automatically linked together when created inside Miro Finally when you close Miro application for any reason then all new breaks created inside it during current session will get saved automatically inside your Toggl account without asking you any confirmations nor any questions (figure 11). Figure 11. New breaks are saved automatically inside Toggl account when closing Miro However, there are some issues related to this integration between Toggl and Miro which may prevent its full usage depending upon certain circumstances. First problem is related to sound notifications which play sounds whenever someone crosses certain time boundaries inside either Toggl or Miro desktop media players while working on projects assigned to them through these media players instead of using their browsers like they used to do before integration took place between both programs (figure 12). Figure 12. Sound notifications not working Second problem is related to many hacks which were added by third parties
