Use Google Sheets to automatically track your time.
Describe your business
In 2021, Rob Drydek (of the MTV 'Rob and Big' fame) was on the My First Million podcast. He talked about his method of tracking his day using a custom Google Sheet script. A month or so later, Sam Parr (of the Hustle Fame) tweeted out a screenshot and said that "SO MANY people asked" him about it.
I then poked around in Google API docs and realized I could make that tool. I tweeted out that if I received 10 ❤️'s on twitter that I would make the tool. I ended up receiving nearly 30 ❤️'s and so I set about making the tool.
I partnered with a stranger from Mexico and we started to market and sell the tool as part of a #BuildSell30 cohort in May 2022.
CalTracker is a Google Sheet add-on that automatically pulls in calendar events from Google Calendar. For example, if someone wants to track how often they go to the gym, they simply add a keyword to the Google calendar event such as #workout. CalTracker can then pull and track how often user is at the gym over time.
