[Updated for QLab 4.1 13 JUL 17]

A simple workspace with cues you can cut and paste into your cue lists to log times to a text file. Creates or opens a file on the desktop, called SHOW LOGGER. Here it is in action:

How it Works:

Adapted from script at

set themessage to “Intermission”
set this_data to ((current date) as string) & space & themessage & return
set target_file to (((path to desktop folder) as string) & “SHOW LOGGER”)
set append_data to true
set the target_file to the target_file as string
set the open_target_file to open for access file target_file with write permission
if append_data is false then set eof of the open_target_file to 0
write this_data to the open_target_file starting at eof
close access the open_target_file
return true
on error
close access file target_file
end try
return false
end try
