New: Start and end times for tasks
To give tasks a start and end time you can use tags like these:
|@2pm-4pm||Creates a task that lasts from 2pm to 4pm, in your timezone.|
|@2pm||Creates a task that starts at 2pm. Will show up on your calendar as a one hour event.|
|@16:00-17:30||You can also use a 24h clock|
|@8-11am||Shorthand is allowed|
If you want to specify the start and end time for a task you also have to give the task a due date. So “Attend sales seminar @4-6pm” will not work (4pm on what day?) but “Attend sales seminar @tomorrow @4-6pm” will work.
- The start and end times also show up on your calendar.
- You can now use “only show tasks with a deadline” to keep the clutter from your calendar
Tip: Free SMS/text notifications
If you synchronize your Thymer appointments with Google Calendar you can get text notifications for free.
SMS notifications have saved us on more than one occasion, and you can’t beat the price! Thanks Google!
Minor search improvements
A few of our users requested a few more special tags to make it easier to find their tasks, so now you can also use the following tags:
|@notags||Find all tasks without tags|
|@noproject||Find all tasks that are not part of a project|
|@nodue||Tasks without a due date|
|@norepeat||Tasks that do not recur|
That’s it for today. More news coming soon!
