Get the wholesome perspective of your workday! You may finally switch between your work and home computers, or work from any laptop with Y-Productive. Your data, such as tasks, projects, categorization preset, settings, and stats will be transferred seamlessly.
The synchronization works by the principle of switching and "activating" the computer you work with:
Let's briefly explain how it works.
Say, you have an office laptop A and home laptop B. If you worked with laptop A, and later switched to work with laptop B, Y-Productive will ask you to activate tracking on laptop B (and vice versa).
It is done to record only the data related to your work process, and to prevent overwriting your information with dummy activities just because your other computer decided to wake up for the update, or if somebody else started your other computer at home. The #2 on the screenshot list explains a rare case when you worked on computer A with an Internet connection, and then switched to the computer B which is offline (and you didn't activate it before going offline). Such data will not be saved.
If you only use one computer, or did activate your current device before going offline, everything will be fine.
This feature is fairly new and we don't have a department of QAs, so if you'll experience any troubles, or still have questions about how it works, feel free to reach out. I will be glad to help.
Have a nice time synchronizing!
What we're working on:
The local data storage feature, to ensure the option for the bulletproof data security for any of you who want to keep their data closer to the body.
Now you may assign/reassign the time for tasks freely! As well as observe the productivity stats for the custom time ranges. Having this is a no-brainer in Y-Productive - sorry it took us so long.
The selector feature works similar to the operations with the text in documents:
You can always turn this feature on/off in the Settings menu:
By the way, did you know that you may add tasks retrospectively? Just select any time range on the chart and press "assign to a task".
We're going to add the option to store your data on your computer and not on the servers. It will allow Y-Productive for a complete offline work and will be a nice addition for everyone who wants to keep their data closer to the body.
In future, it will become the "on/off" option to let you choose between the synchronization on different machines and the bulletproof local data security.
One of the most demanded features recently.
We expect it to ease life for everyone who wants to keep track of the work that includes being off the computer or wants to create the most accurate Reports for themselves or for the clients.
In addition, we'll add "brush" to the chart, so you'll be able to select any time range you need.
Categorization Profiles, more insightful Productivity Reports (summarized stats for websites/apps for week/month), Goals, Pomodoro timer.
