Use Timer to track the time you spent on calendar sessions.

The Timer can be in one of three states: Idle, Executing, and Break. The app will notify you when either the Executing and Break state is over.

Start a Timer

There are many ways to start a timer. You can long press a calendar session -> tap Start Timer.

Or you can tap the Start button on top of the current time block.

Or on the Planner tap the menu button -> tap Show Timer -> tap the Switch button on the timer panel to select a target -> tap the start button to start the Timer.

Basic Operations

Once the Timer is started, you can see the remaining execution time for this timer session. 

To pause the timer, tap the pause button. Tap resume when you’re ready to continue.

When the execution time is over, tap the break button to switch to break mode. The timer now show the remaining time for break.

To switch to another calendar session you can long press the new target -> tap Select in Timer. Or from the Timer panel tap the switch button on the bottom right corner, then select the new target.

Tap the stop button to stop the timer and apply the timer log to the calendar session.

To see how much time you have spent on a calendar session you can open the session -> navigate to the Date and Time section -> Time Spent. Tap the duration to see details. Here you can see the list of the timer logs, each with start time and duration. You can also add logs manually by tapping the add button on the top right corner.

Customize the Timer

By default, the execution length is 50 minutes and break length is 10 minutes.

To change the default execution and break length: tap the menu button, tap Configs, enter the new values, then tap Done to save. Note that if the timer is currently working then the new values won’t be apply right away but on the next time you start the timer instead.

You can also customize the execution and break length for a specific block. First, open the left panel -> tap Day Blocks -> open the Block you want to customize. Here, in the Timer Preferences section tap the drop-down button -> select Custom, and set the values for the execution length and break length. Tap Done to save it. From now on, whenever you start a timer with a target of this block, the timer will use the block’s settings for execution and break length instead of the default values.

You can always change the execution or break length length of the current timer session, regardless of the settings. While in the Executing/Break state tap the clock -> enter the amount of time in minutes -> tap Ok.

To take a break before the execution length is over: tap the menu button -> tap Take Break.

To clear the execution time limit for the current session: tap the menu button -> tap Clear Execution Time Limit. Because there’s no longer a time limit, the timer now show how much time you have spent instead of how much time until break.

If you realize that the timer was focusing on the wrong target all along then you can replace the current timer target with a new one. With that, the current timer log will also be removed from the previous target and applied to the new target. To replace target: tap the menu button -> tap Replace Target -> select a new target.
