Using the same platform, I have created a personal productivity tool called Solo SCRUM Sprinter. It saves a calendar appointment format that directly opens in Microsoft Outlook (or default .ics app), no passwords required.

It uses the SCRUM  software terminology, which is just new lingo for getting work done in small tasks. What we all do at our work naturally in intervals, this tool makes it easy for you to document your personal work effort.

This app will keep you agile and aware of the time is flying by when you are busy, reminding you to document you work.
