Yes, sadly, I get this sort of messages sometimes.

Even though I’m trying to build the app as intuitive as possible, there is just too much stuff for some new users.

Some sort of quick-start quide is indeed needed (and also planned). Until that is finished, I have written few lines describing the main menu of the app from left to right.

I will try to describe the top menu from left ➡️ right:


Timer
🍅 Pomodoro timer – use if you need to finish few big tasks per day (more about the Pomodoro technique here)
⏰ Classic timer – use if you need to finish multiple smaller tasks (< 1h) per day

 

Todo ✅
This is basically organized checklist.
Every new todo will be added to Inbox and categorized based on:
– Due date
– Star
– Recurrence
– Project, client and tag(s)

 

Tools 🔨
Dashboard – quick summary of your last week/month
History – Advanced filter for all of your completed time entries (from the Timer(s), not todos)
Reports – The same thing as the history, but with some really nice graphs, plots and pictures
Sync – Here you can set up exporting your time entries to other systems (Trello, Toggl)
Night mode – Just switches the color theme for the app

 

Manage 📁
Projects, clients and tags – you can assign every one of them to time entries or todos.
It will help you categorize your time entries and todos better.
You can also filter using them.

One client can have multiple projects, so the structure should be:
– Client X
– Project A
– Project B
– Client Y
– Project C
However, this is not a rule.

Also, one time entry/todo can have assigned: 0-1 project, 0-1 client, 0-infinity tags.


I hope it’s somehow understandable and not totally chaotic!

If you still have questions, just drop me a line.
