Customizing VAKCER Project Tracker
Starting from version 2.1 VAKCER Project Tracker provides support
for plug-ins. This is a very important feature for anyone who
requires custom functionality in the application. You can develop
custom features yourself using Visual Basic or any other programming
language, or you can request a custom feature from a 3rd party
developer. There are some plug-in modules available now.
See the list of available
plug-ins that you can use right away. More plug-ins will be
created in the future.
One of the most significant plug-ins available now is Network

workgroup in a network and makes tracking time for multiple users
much easier. See the Plug-ins section for more information
about this new feature.
