I want to use org clocks to clock my time at work, I finish after 7:30 of clocked time every day.

I want to know what would be my total clocked time if I stopped the time right now, but the last clock is ignored in the org-clock-table.

You can include the currently running clock in the report by altering variable org-clock-report-include-clocking-task.

Its documentation reads: "When non-nil, include the current clocking task time in clock reports."

So you could use

(setq org-clock-report-include-clocking-task t)

Or use M-x customize-option org-clock-report-include-clocking-task to set your preference.

  • Hmm, I also came across this variable, but it does not seem to work for me. I have a clock running, but producing the report does not include that clock. Has this worked for anyone?
