Thanks for the feedback Gene. I've added your suggestions to our backlog and we will strongly consider them when we start to implement the time tracking feature.
The last item in your list can be done with TeamPulse today if you go to the My Perspective screen. This screen will show you all the tasks, stories, and bugs assigned to you in the current iteration. If you don't use iterations or would like to see the tasks for a different one, there is also an iteration drop down. I hope this helps.
