I have tried to use org-clock-display (C-c C-x C-d) in order to know how much time I have spent on an activity, which is broken down further. The first three outlines won't have their time spent accounted for, as shown in the image below. From module 4 onward everything works fine.

Org tree

I do no know how to debug this, and have tried to check if the structure of the time appointments are correct, which by visual inspection they seem to be. Is there something I am missing or that could help me to debug this issue?

  • There is not enough information here. You'll need to tell us not only the output, but even more importantly, the input. The best thing to do is to come up with a minimal example Org file that when processed, shows the problem: then people can try it out. As it stands, your question is not detailed enough to allow anybody to answer it.

  • Hey Nick, thanks for letting me know it is still not detailed enough. Kinda hard to ask when you don't know very well the subject.

  • You could just do as I asked: post the Org file that generated the output above.

  • You are right, I could have, but I just gave up after this slightly unpleasant experience, but no worries, I understand what you mean. Thanks anyways. For now, I have gathered the hours from those activities manually. Will post an answer myself if I figure out so others might benefit from it.

  • Could it be that those dates fall out of the current org-clock-display-default-range? See: stackoverflow.com/questions/59749731/… Try C-u C-u C-c C-x C-d and select interactive to customize the date range.
