What's new on Y-Productive

The app to keep your work and distractions under control

November 13, 2018



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.

Select custom areas on the chart


What's new:

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:

  • Double click to select the group (tracked tasks, separate time ranges, etc.);
  • Shift+arrows (up/down/left/right) - extend/minimize the selection;
  • Arrows - move through the chart by bars or areas;
  • Enter - open assign/reassign tab in the pop-up;
  • Esc - close the pop-up and the selected area. 


  • Opening the Y-Productive app from the Start menu no longer opens the new YP app. It opens the window of the minimized YP app instead.
  • The displaying and number of "Switching" no longer depends on the stats from the tasks tracked. Now it accounts for all your activities, no matter if you tracked any tasks today or not.

Changes in History are allowed!


What's new:

  • You can make changes for the previous day(-s) in History.It is useful for people who work with tasks after midnight, or just for everyone who wants to assign/reassign tasks retrospectively.

What we're working on:

  • Brush. It will allow you to choose a custom time range on the chart, and simplify assign and reassign operations for tasks.
  • Productivity Reports for activities. You'll be able to compose the summarized report for your website and app usage for the week/month/etc. Productivity score included!
