This documentation is under construction and might be incomplete. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Channels are entities (virtual or real) which are the source of events. They indicate where the event originated and also gives some context information about the event. Channels can be either added from the store (via APPS) or can be created manually by yourself. For eg.
- Whatsapp is a channel through which you can record the events you do
- Chrome Extension is a channel which records your browsing activity
- Your Google Calendar can be a channel which gives out your calendar data
Or you can create your own channel in Timecampus and manually record events against it.
Anything you do in life is an event. Every activity has a time, context and some data associated to it. Events can be point events, continuous, recurring and can also be scheduled in the future.
Every event has to originate from a channel (which can be real or virtual) and must have a time associated with it. These events can be also mapped against your Goals/Milestones about which we will see later in the documentation.
The store is the place where you can explore and add all the apps you may want. You can add/remove apps or if you are a developer, you can also build one and share it with others (we will be launching the developer platform soon..)
Also, there can be multiple stores (we modelled it after the real-world) and each store can have a group of items/apps. More on this soon.
Apps are things which extend the functionality provided by the Timecampus Platform and can be of various types. They can come in either one/multiple categories below.
- Channel Apps - These apps are responsible for publishing event information to Timecampus. They record what the user does and publishes it to Timecampus for further processing/analysis.
- Intelligence Apps* - These apps are responsible for providing users with intelligent actionable insights with the data recorded in Timecampus.
- Optimization Apps* - These apps are mainly responsible for performing optimization tasks like speeding up business processes, workflows and user interaction using the data derived from Timecampus.
* We are very privy about our user's data and the data is provided only if user consents for it. Also, the apps in this category will undergo high level of scrutiny by us before approval into the store.
Applets are modules within Timecampus (you can think of it as app within app) which is responsible for doing a single functionality relating to Time Optimization.
For eg. the applet GVector is responsible for managing your goals and milestones (in addition to providing you additional functionalities which you can read about in the applet documentation)
