Tags time-management and time-tracking both exist. With very few questions (44 total) and haven't been used in a year (or two).

Perhaps these should be synonyms. I'd say keep time-management, but time-tracking already has a synonym.

  • [time-management] is definitely limited to human productivity. [time-tracking] has mixed usage, including tracking time of computer activity. It might be better to add some wiki excerpts. Re-tag the [time-tracking] questions that relate to human productivity as [time-management], and leave the ones related to computer activity. – fixer1234 Mar 7 '16 at 19:27
  • And now that I look at the questions, I see people have used [time-management] to also refer to computer activity (how surprising is that?). So those questions would get re-tagged with [time-tracking]. Another possibility: also rename the tags for clarity, like [human-time-management], and [computer-process-time-tracking], or something. – fixer1234 Mar 7 '16 at 19:35
  • Is there a difference on superuser? My thoughts are if it's on topic here, it needs to be about the same thing - not the same as "timer" or "date and time" or compiling... – Raystafarian Mar 8 '16 at 9:00
  • There's a collection of stuff about human productivity software, and another collection of stuff about computer process times. I would think those should be separate topics. – fixer1234 Mar 8 '16 at 9:06
  • That may be a good point, perhaps a retag of the human collection just to [productivity] and then everything else goes to whichever one stays. – Raystafarian Mar 8 '16 at 9:09
  • Let me browse the questions. There's an existing [productivity] that's a motley collection, but it includes stuff other than time management. Then there's [to-do], which is similar to time management. [tasks], which is another mix of meat and silicon. I assume [time-tracking] probably includes some stuff like accounting software, which a lot of people would distinguish from time management. [scheduling] probably overlaps. Sometimes the best way is to start peeling off stuff that obviously goes somewhere else.as a 1st step. – fixer1234 Mar 8 '16 at 9:43
  • This will take a little longer than I thought. So far, I've found over 2 doz inter-related tags. – fixer1234 Mar 9 '16 at 2:35

    The bigger picture on human productivity questions needs work. [time-management] has now been cleaned up to refer only to people questions. We could at least make some progress by retagging the people-based [time-tracking] questions to [time-management] and limiting the [time-tracking] tag to computer-based questions. Any tag cleanup will need to differentiate those questions, anyway. – fixer1234 Mar 11 '16 at 11:09
  • Good work @fixer1234 – Raystafarian Mar 11 '16 at 11:50
