Horaire is a time-tracking tool.

Horaire is a time-tracking engine designed to record and host daily activity logs. A log is recorded at the routine, and contains 3 values.

General Productivity(Ph) is not seen an a net positive, but as a value that speaks of how reflective a project is, or a value that indicates how much time was spent on planning, against time spent on user-facing assets. Certain types of project will naturally have a high index of productivity, while others will not. Productivity might also shift during a project's lifetime as it goes from a prototype(low concrete output), to a full release with its media assets(high concrete output) and through the periods of maintenance(back to low concrete output) that follows.

Planning(4ch) / for 7fh0.57ph
Performance(9ch) / for 3fh3.00ph

A task name can be generated from the intersection of Ch and Fh. For example, the code 238, can be converted into 8fh, for the storyboard task.

As explained above, a fh is not equal to an hour, a fh is ratio of invested time over total available time. For example, a good day might look like: 3 pomodoros(~90min) over 3 hours(~180min) equivalent to 50% of available time, or 6fh. And a day of lesser focus might look like: 2 pomodoros(~60min), over 6 hours(~360min) equivalent to 15% of available time, or 2fh. Furthermode, a harder task would be more fh(time spent), over less ch(concrete output), meaning that a high fh does not necessarily correlate with productivity.
