I can't see how to get a clean view of clocked time ranges. Not just the 
length of time, but the actual start and end times. I would like to 
share my attempts to give you an idea.

If I include

     (org-agenda-start-with-log-mode '(closed clock state))

in my agenda block, then I can see them, but unfortunately I am clocking 
on items I've scheduled for myself, so they mix in and it is hard to 
read quickly. That is, I have

#+BEGIN_SRC
** example
*** circus act                                                    :routine:
**** backflips
CLOCK: [2014-04-23 Wed 07:45]--[2014-04-23 Wed 07:48] =>  0:03
SCHEDULED: <2014-04-23 Wed 07:45-07:50>
:PROPERTIES:
:Effort:   0:05
:END:
**** somersaults
SCHEDULED: <2014-04-23 Wed 07:50-08:00>
CLOCK: [2014-04-23 Wed 07:48]--[2014-04-23 Wed 07:52] =>  0:04
:PROPERTIES:
:Effort:   0:10

:Effort:   0:20
:END:

:PROPERTIES:
:Effort:   0:20
:END:
#+END_SRC

In an `agenda' block, I have tried to filter the scheduled lines out, 
and keep the clock lines, but filters seem to work before deciding to 
include the clocking, so the pair, scheduled and clocked will vanish 
together. (If I could get a view of just clock time ranges, I might use 
a sticky buffer to see one agenda block with scheduled time ranges, and 
another agenda block with clocked time ranges.)

I tried using a clock report table, but I can't see how to get the 
actual clocked time, instead of the timestamp range. Via

     (org-agenda-start-with-clockreport-mode t)

I've looked at column view as a possibility, but again, the clock time 
does not seem to be available.

I tried to use the `search' block, but did not think of a way to display 
only clock times there.

Here are the results of my best tries at an agenda view. (I found it a 
little awkward to compare clocked times to scheduled times as they are 
mixed in here.)

Finally, here is my custom-command that I have been working on:

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp

(org-add-agenda-custom-command
  '("r" "routine"
    ((agenda ""
             (
              (org-clocktable-defaults
               '(
                 :timestamp t
                 :properties ("Effort")
                 :indent t
                 ))
              )
             )
     (search "CLOCK")
     )
    (
     (org-agenda-files '("/e/org/agendatest.org"))
     (org-agenda-span 'day)
     (org-agenda-start-with-clockreport-mode t)
     (org-agenda-start-with-log-mode '(closed clock state))
     (org-agenda-tag-filter-preset '("+routine"))
     )
    ))

#+END_SRC

To give a visual of what I am trying to do,

   agendatest:  7:45- 7:48 Clocked:   (0:03) backflips    :routine::

               10:00...... ----------------
               12:00...... ----------------
               14:00...... ----------------

               18:00...... ----------------
               20:00...... ----------------

which would be nice to compare against:

   agendatest:  8:00- 8:20 Scheduled:  tell fortune        :routine:
                8:00...... ----------------
               10:00...... ----------------
               12:00...... ----------------
               14:00...... ----------------
               16:00...... ----------------
               17:15...... now - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
               18:00...... ----------------
               20:00...... ----------------
   agendatest: 21:10-21:30 Scheduled:  feed elephant       :routine:

Maybe if I just added a face to the clocked items?

Any ideas and alternative strategies are appreciated. My system is not 
at all fixed in place.


Thank you,

Brady
