To assist project planning, TODO items can be labeled with a date and/or a time. The specially formatted string carrying the date and time information is called a timestamp in Org mode. This may be a little confusing because timestamp is often used as indicating when something was created or last changed. However, in Org mode this term is used in a much wider sense.
|• Timestamps:||Assigning a time to a tree entry.|
|• Creating Timestamps:||Commands to insert timestamps.|
|• Deadlines and Scheduling:||Planning your work.|
|• Clocking Work Time:||Tracking how long you spend on a task.|
|• Effort Estimates:||Planning work effort in advance.|
|• Timers:||Notes with a running timer.|
