Feedback problems

September 26, 2007

Lately we have had two unfortunate occasions, when the mail server that sends us the feedback from Toggl, failed us. These failures were caused by a glitch in the mailer configuration, but we’ve fixed that and made sure it won’t reproduce. We’ve also added a fail-safe to keep any new comments from getting loston the way. However, this means that some of your comments on Toggl may not have reached us (even if Toggl showed you that it had been sent) :(

So if you sent us a bug report, questions or something else and we haven’t replied in a while, please, send it again. We’re really sorry for this inconvenience. You live and you learn, I guess. We certainly learned our lesson from this :)

Helpful hints #4: Using Toggl Desktop

September 19, 2007

Today we’ll talk a bit about the basics of using Toggl Desktop.

Log in with your Toggl username and password, set the first day of the week and let’s get started.

To start tracking time you have 2 options:

  • Click on the task name below – Toggl continues tracking for this task.
  • Click on the project name below – Toggl creates a new task for the project. You can enter the description of the task in the box as usual.

Once the task is running, you can start or stop the timer by clicking on the good old Toggl button Toggl button

Now, if you want to change task details, you can click on the Edit link in the running task box. This will open up the editing view, where you can change everything about the task (similar to Toggl web).

Official Toggl Desktop released!

September 17, 2007

We’re glad to announce the first release of Toggl Desktop, our little timetracking device for your desktop. It is available for download at Toggl main page.

We have taken our one year experience with Toggl and your very helpful feedback and came up with quite radical changes:

  • No need to mark your tasks completed anymore
    Closing tasks is not necessary anymore, Toggl Desktop takes care of it when a new day begins.
  • Easier handling of recurring tasks
    Toggl Desktop remembers the tasks you worked on during the last seven days and shows you these names as quick links to start tracking time on the task. The task will automatically track time with the current date.
  • Better overview of time spent on a task
    You can see time spent on a task or project during this week by simply hovering your mouse over its name.

Even though Toggl Desktop is still in beta, it is fully functional for tracking time without logging on to the web page.

Current version is usable in Windows only and needs .NET framework 2.0 to be installed. Get your Toggl Desktop now!
