Go! The productivity app has been updated to version 1.8.0. The new version adds Pomodoro timer mode, configurable keyboard shortcuts, options for recording the time spent on work to the todo.txt file and more functions. Is a Gtk tool, which includes a to-do list and a timer. It uses Todo.txt Both desktop and mobile devices have formats supported by a large number of applications; Todo.txt is a popular to-do list format in which data is stored in plain text files. The application is available for Windows and Linux.
The most important change in the latest Go It It! 1.8.0 is a new option to change the timer mode. The interval time or interval time does not need to be the same anymore-you can now set the timer mode to “simple”, Pomodoro, Or use a custom schedule.
This can be done by opening the application settings. On the “Behavior” tab, you will find a new timer mode drop-down menu, where you can choose Simple, Pomodoro or Custom.
In addition, the latest Go For It has other improvements! 1.8.0:
- Configurable keyboard shortcuts
- New option to record the time spent on tasks (using a timer) to the todo.txt file
- Changing the system clock or suspending the system will no longer affect the timer
- You can tell it now! How long should a task be added by
duration:Xh-YmContent in the task description (e.g.
duration:5m5-minute task) to notify you when you exceed the duration
- Go! Now use the alarm clock icon to highlight the task you are currently working on
- Added an option to add a new task at the beginning of each list instead of appending it to the end
- Add to
--loadDisplay the configured list and load the parameters of the specified list separately
- Experimental: You can now log your activities into a csv file by launching Go For It! versus
It is worth mentioning that! By default, the basic theme without title bar is used by default. The first time it is run on a desktop that supports title bars (such as GNOME), this will result in a weird-looking application window. This setting can be changed in the application settings (“Appearance” tab)-from here it can be set to use the title bar and inherit the GTK theme instead of using Elementary. You need to restart the application after changing the appearance.
