Dear Affinity Team,
I'm in the process of creating a huge ass portfolio of my works. During the process it came to my mind, that some readers and customers might be interested to know, how much time I have spend on each of my works. Obviously, it would be a solution to measure things on my own (which seems hard to apply for previous projects) but I figured, it might be a neat feature, if the Affinity Suit had some sort of tracking system incorporated. Surely, it can't be said, that the time a document has been opened, equals the time actually spend working on it (idle time, coffee breaks and so on), but it makes for a reasonable start. To further improve the accuracy, two ideas came to my mind:
Track the users actvity and create an average APM. If the downtime gets out of hand, take it as a break. Show Document opened. Estimated work time.
Give the user an interface to start, pause, continue the tracking.
