We are happy to announce the release of Timing 2018.4!
Among other things, the new version includes:
- Calendar Integration: Timing Expert now shows meetings and other events in the timeline!
- You can now disable tracking on weekends ?
- The new color picker lets you choose any color you want for your projects ?
- URL tracking support for Brave and Firefox Nightly.
- And when you select activities in the activity list, the header will now show their total duration.
When we sent out a survey about what improvements you’d like to see for Timing, integrating with your calendar was one of the most popular suggestions. With Timing 2018.4, this is finally a reality! You can learn everything about this feature in the corresponding knowledge base article.
Timing now offers an option to not track you at all on weekends. That way, your well-deserved leisure time will no longer drag down your glorious 90% productivity score! Simply activate this feature in the Timing preferences:
New Color Picker
Our existing color picker let you choose from quite a few options for coloring your projects. However, for some cases those were not enough — we had no grey color options, for example. Now, you can pick any color you’d like (including grey) in the project editor. Here’s me picking Timing’s signature color for the “Timing” project:
Selected Activity Durations in the Header
If you select some activities on the “Review” or “Details” screens, Timing will now show how much time you selected in total:
Timing 2018.4 also includes a few smaller improvements:
- You can now drag files, folders and websites onto projects to add rules for them. Note that existing activities which would match these rules will not be moved into that project; these rules only apply to future activities.
- We’ve tweaked the size of the task editor’s suggestion window and notes field such that the start/end date fields no longer get obscured by the suggestion window.
- Newly created projects now start out with a productivity score of 100%.
- We’ve mitigated the effects of the operating system accidentally launching the Timing menu item twice.
- And we’ve added a few minor cosmetical improvements and glitch fixes.
As always, you can also find the complete list of changes in the release notes.
