I want to start by saying that this is by far the best time tracking app that I have ever seen and want to thank you for all the work you've put into it.
My question pertains to the support for shortcuts in the IOS shortcuts app. In the shortcuts app under the ATracker section, I can see the list of suggested actions. There is a start action for all of my tasks and a couple of other simple actions.
However, the limitation that I'm running into is that the "start" actions are not customizable.
To illustrate my first point, consider the "Create an alarm" action for the default IOS clock app. There is a text box for "Time" and one for "Alarm". I could type the name and time of an alarm or even fill it in procedurally with a script. These sorts of custom inputs are not possible with the ATracker actions. There is only "start" and "stop". I can't customize a time for a task to start and stop, and I cannot select a tag to apply to that task.
The main reason I am writing this is that I want to build a shortcut that starts a task with a certain drop-down label, but there's no way to do that.
What I truly desire are just a couple of shortcuts with text box inputs. Maybe one called "Log Task" that lets you type the name of the task and what time you want it to start and stop at. And maybe another called something like "Change dropdown tag for current task" that lets you type the name of the dropdown option to select for the current task. Or maybe even one action that does both.
My main question is: Is something like this possible, or are there technical challenges that would prevent implementing something like this? How easy would this be to implement, and might we ever see a change like this?
Thank you so much for reading this admittedly long suggestion post. I look forward to your response.
