@Virginijus et al, we do monitor your feedback and appreciate the fact that you take the time to suggest and vote on features. Though we won’t act on every single suggestion that gets made here, we certainly recognize the value that this and several other top features would bring to our users and are very much interested in making them happen. Thanks for your patience and continued interest in our offerings. ;)
Hey Matt, check out the tagging feature available in HoursTracker 2.6+ and HoursTracker HD 1.8+.
Currently, tags are not included in the CSV export from HoursTrackerCloud.com but will be in a future release.
I watch IFTTT's site periodically. It looks like they are getting closer to enabling partner channels for smaller players. Though this is still way outside of our priority list, it's interesting to me personally. I'll keep on watching it to see if/when they do open up. At the very least, given the form at https://ifttt.com/platform, we'll need to solidify our API a bit more before being able to approach them anyway.
I could see something like that being useful. But given what you described below, I'm not sure what value ifttt.com would provide. I was not aware of that site until you posted this thread so my impression may be off, but it seems to me that the value that they provide is in the defined channels. If I understand the model correctly, I'd need to work with them to create an HoursTracker channel. This would only be necessary to wire up HoursTracker events to other channels, right? Regardless, the things you describe below look like they could all be implemented as features of HoursTrackerCloud.com without tying into ifttt.com at all.
Regarding feature creep, sure, this is way outside of our (current) core competency but I could see applicability both from a power user and employer perspective.
Aside from being "neat", what's the business case here? The biggest problem I see is that until we have a true data sync implemented, event-driven behavior is not really possible. Right now, we don't know anything until the user chooses to make a backup or an automatic backup occurs.

Thanks, Andrew. We'll look into it.
Again, a mockup would really help here. This one sounds pretty complicated but I'd like to get a visual to understand what you are describing.
Could you send me a mockup of what you have in mind? Sounds interesting but I'd like to get a visual if that's not too much trouble.
I have laid the foundation for an API. I currently have a few things implemented and am using them internally. What would you like to see? Specific suggestions would be appreciated.
