Unproductive apps notification, removed "Paused" title on macOS tray icon





1.8.0 (July 30, 2018)

What's new:

  • Added new notification. If your Focus Mode is on, and you switch to the app from your Unproductive list, you'll be reminded to keep your focus on work:

You can always turn this feature on/off in the Settings menu:

  • On macOS, we removed the confusing "Paused" status on the YP tray icon. Your activities are tracked automatically when the app is open in the background, even if you don't track any tasks, so this status was not true.

By the way, did you know that you may add tasks retrospectively? Just select any time range on the chart and press "assign to a task".

We're working on:

  • Local data storage

We're going to add the option to store your data on your computer and not on the servers. It will allow Y-Productive for a complete offline work and will be a nice addition for everyone who wants to keep their data closer to the body.

In future, it will become the "off/on" option to let you choose between the synchronization on different machines and the bulletproof local data security.

  • More functional chart, the option to assign offline/untracked time to tasks and Projects retrospectively

One of the most demanded features recently. We expect it to ease life for everyone who wants to keep track of the work that includes being off the computer or wants to create the most accurate Reports for themselves or for the clients.

In addition, we'll add "brush" to the chart, so you'll be able to select any time range you need.

More features that we have on our roadmap:

Categorization Profiles, more insightful Productivity Reports (summarized stats for websites/apps for week/month), Goals, Pomodoro timer.

We consider the feedback in a first place every time we decide on what to build next to make the Y-Productive an even better app for your work.
