How does it work?

Getting started with the Focus Timer is easy:

  • Open up an Event and head to the top-right of your screen: here you’ll find the new Focus Timer button. (Note: this is greyed out while recording).

  • Click the Focus Timer button, and select how long you would like to study for - this can be 10, 15 or 30-minutes - and hit ‘Start Timer’.

  • Once clicked, a timer will appear in the top-right indicating how long is left in your current session - time to get studying!

  • When the timer finishes counting down, a short summary will appear showing your activity from the session.

  • Not quite finished? Simply start the timer again and keep studying - but don’t forget to take a break!
