Definitions


Business Component - this is the thing that is either sold or used internally by your company.


Project - this is what you are attempting to achieve. For example, if your business component is a cherry pie, your project might be "to make the pie crust moister".


Activity - this is what actions were performed. In our pie example it might be "tested binding agents" or "gathered test data". There are only two 4-hour periods per day; AM and PM. The activity should have taken the majority of the AM or the PM.


Each time you log-in, the grid is repopulated and the user is quickly re-authenticated against Google's Oauth2 authentication servers.
