How to Install Traggo on Your Synology NAS

How to Install Traggo on Your Synology NAS

Traggo is a tag-based time tracking tool. In Traggo there are no tasks, only tagged time spans. With tags, Traggo tries to be as customizable as possible, for example, if you work on different projects you could add a project-tag. If you like to see statistics from the different things you do, you could add a type-tag with values like email, programming, meeting. You can do it just as you like. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Traggo on your Synology NAS using Docker.
