I just decided to try to start clocking tasks and would find it most helpful
to organize by tag, not file. Perhaps my filing system is unorthodox, but I
originally started using an org file per work project but just found it
cumbersome when it came to recording my notes since I'd be switching back
and forth between many files. I suppose I could have used capture for this,
but I think my current system makes more sense. It is to use one file per
month and the format is like so:

| ~/org/2011-02Feb.org
| ---
| * [2011-02-04 Fri]...
| * [2011-02-08 Tue]...
| * [2011-02-22 Tue]...
| ** Description of something I did          :project-name:
| CLOCK: [whatever]--[whatever]
| Notes
| ** Something else I did this day            :other-project:
| CLOCK: [whatever]--[whatever]
| Notes

Hopefully that's clear. I like this method as it keeps file sizes down and
just seems more organized than how I was before.

In any case, I realize that I can setup clock reports with something like
=:tags "project-name"= to get a report for a particular tag. That can at
least give me per-project reports for a given timeframe, but I wouldn't mind
the ability to have something that shows all my time but includes tags

Perhaps it would display the headline (which is actually nice since my top
headlines are the dates), then the sub-item (which would be helpful because
it would be a description of what I was doing), but somehow give a summary
of time-per-tag or a column that lists the tag for teach task as well? Is
this possible? That would be great as I'd be able to get a snapshot of how I
spent my day per project.

Again.. manually, this is possible as I can create a "clockreport.org" file
with a headline per project with a specific =:tag "project-name"= argument
and then I could add up times and compare them from there. Though perhaps
there's a better way to get something like this as well?

Thanks for any thoughts or even sharing how you use clocking when it comes
to analyzing the data afterward.

Best regards,
