My team recently started using RTM and wanted to store total time spent on each task. Here is what we did.
We store 1 note per task with a title: "Hours".
We then enter time on consecutive lines as: date, #hours, person
Then we created a small .net app that exports tasks into a db, splits out the hours into a new table. On top of that we have a report that creates a "status report" for the week.
Now, we just enter tasks, time, etc. Then we export the data into a separate db, and then run reports that help us with time tracking. Anyway, just wanted to share with others a possible solution to tracking more than what rtm offers in a way that compliments this great tool.
