I don’t do consultancy, but we I need to book for multiple projects at
work. I track my time and projects with org-mode (and found that
whenever I think “this is so small, I don’t need an org-headline for
this”, time gets out of hand). At the end of the week I then book my
time on the corresponding Jira issues using the clocktable in

These are my essential customizations for that:

(use-package org-agenda
  :defer 8
  (alert-default-style 'libnotify)
  (appt-disp-window-function 'alert-for-appt)
  (appt-delete-window-function (lambda ()))
    (:max-duration "12:00" :min-duration 0 :max-gap "0:05" :gap-ok-around
		   ("4:00" "12:00")
		   ((:background "DarkRed")
		    (:foreground "white"))
		   :overlap-face nil :gap-face nil :no-end-time-face nil :long-face nil :short-face nil)))
  (org-agenda-clockreport-parameter-plist (quote (:link t :maxlevel 2 :properties ("Effort"))))
  (org-agenda-start-with-clockreport-mode t)
  ;; Rebuild the reminders everytime the agenda is displayed
  (add-hook 'org-agenda-finalize-hook (lambda () (org-agenda-to-appt t)))
  ;; Run once when Emacs starts
  (org-agenda-to-appt t)
  ;; Activate appointments so we get notifications
  (appt-activate t))

(defun my/org-agenda-show-kanban ()
    (search-forward ":KANBAN:")
    (recenter-top-bottom 0)))

;; KDE: show custom agenda with kanban via f12:
(with-eval-after-load 'org
  (setq org-agenda-custom-commands
        '(("o" "Agenda and TODOs"
            (tags-todo "-notodo" ((org-agenda-block-separator ?-)))
	    (tags "KANBAN" ((org-agenda-block-separator ?-)(org-agenda-compact-blocks nil)(org-agenda-overriding-header "")))))))

(defun rotate-windows (arg)
  "Rotate your windows; use the prefix argument to rotate the other direction"
  (interactive "P")
  (if (not (> (count-windows) 1))
      (message "You can't rotate a single window!")
    (let* ((rotate-times (prefix-numeric-value arg))
           (direction (if (or (< rotate-times 0) (equal arg '(4)))

(defun show-frame (&optional frame)
  "Show the current Emacs frame or the FRAME given as argument.

And make sure that it really shows up!"
  ; yes, you have to call this twice. Don’t ask me why…
  ; select-frame-set-input-focus calls x-focus-frame and does a bit of
  ; additional magic.
  (select-frame-set-input-focus (selected-frame))
  (select-frame-set-input-focus (selected-frame)))

I have a dedicated emacs environment for work that I brought over into
