Under a "topic" org entry I sometimes make daily sub-entries while working on the topic. Is there a command to start logging time on the top level topic instead of the daily entry?

  • Do C-h f org-clock-in and see its usage with prefix args. If you invoke it first on the parent with C-u C-u C-c C-x C-i, then you can invoke it later on a child with C-u C-c C-x C-i and choose d (for "default") to start the clock on the parent. Does that work for you?

  • @NickD thanks, this does work! The C-u C-c C-x C-i shows also a list of recent tasks which was already enough (without even setting a default task). Perhaps you could make your comment an answer so I could check-mark it? :) Jan 13 at 19:59
