New Desktop App Release

There is a new release this week for Time Doctor Tasks version 1.4.66 and Time Doctor version 2.3.40.

Renaming the desktop apps

Note that we are planning to rename the desktop apps to:

Time Doctor Lite – the smaller version (currently called “Time Doctor”) and

Time Doctor Pro – the more advanced version (currently called “Time Doctor Tasks”).

The reason for renaming them is that we feel that the current names are confusing and do not completely distinguish the two versions of the software. This has not been implemented yet, it’s coming up.

Improvements to the “Back to Work” window

Some people have complained that there are too many popups with Time Doctor and we are working on ways to reduce the number of times the software pops up while maintaining the integrity of the time tracking information. Here are two changes we made towards this:

  • Disable the “Back to work now” pop up if an app is in full screen mode (this does not work in Mac unfortunately)
  • If you close the “Back at work” window then it is frozen for 30 minutes

We also have a plan to be able to choose when it will pop up. For example if you do not work on the weekends it will not pop up to ask if you are working.
