Timer and Pomodoro timer


Besides the stopwatch, there are two more options to time your work: Timer and Pomodoro timer.
Timer is a normal countdown timer. When it finishes, it stops and you have to start it again. To start a timer, click on Stopwatch text and choose Timer.
Choose timer
Then choose a tag and click Ok to start. When the time is up, it will save the tag and exit.

Pomodoro timer

There is a lot written about Pomodoro timer, so we will not go into much detail here. The idea is that you work for a specified amount of time (usually 25 minutes), then have a break. After the break you repeat the process, which gives you a nice work-break balance.
To use it, click on Pomodoro in the Stopwatch dropdown then click Start.
Choose Pomodoro timer
By default work interval will be 25 minutes long. You also need to select a tag. The idea of Pomodoro timer is knowing what you will be doing for those 25 minutes, so think about what you will accomplish in the next 25 minutes, choose your task and start working.
Pomodoro timer work window
After 25 minutes, a Break window will pop up. You have several options:
Pomodoro timer break window
  • Ok - Choose a tag and continue, for example tag "Break"  
  • Skip break - continue working for another 25 minutes.
  • Do not tag - start the break, but do not tag this time (maybe you don't know what you will be doing during the break and want to fill this time later).
  • Stop - Stop Pomodoro
Pomodoro will stop once you click Stop or when one of the work-break windows is left unattended.
