Support for the Pomodoro Technique

scoinva says:
Would like to see the ability to make my TO DO list into different time management techniques such as: Promodoro, AutoFocus, and ABCD method.

http://www.pomodorotechnique.com/resources/cirillo/ThePomodoroTechnique_v1-3.pdf

RTM is SUPER FLEXIBLE but maybe too flexible. Making the system "skinnable" for different personality types and lifestyles would take RTM to a whole new level for 2010.

I Totally agree.
I'm using the pomodoro technique and have been using RTM for a while. I aways get myself thinking how to get both "systems" to work together in harmony.

+1. I use RTM as my "Activity Inventory Sheet" and would love to be able to set the time estimate for tasks in pomodoros instead of minutes/hours.

rean1977 says:
This is a great idea. I'd like to add 1p or 2p to the estimated time, but at this point it's not possible.

Besides the estimated time it can come in handy to see the actual time you've spend on the task.

Besides some issues; RTM is awesome!

+1. If we could have a clock which updates the pomodoros spent on a task would be awesome! Something like pomodairo:

I would love a pomodoro timer as an optional sidebar gadget. You select the task you want to focus on, start the timer, and go. It'd be slick.

driedtoast says:
+1 this would be a great idea, or minimally have the ability to focus on a task. Click on a task and have it 20pt font that keeps you focused until you are done with that task.

I agree. On my iPad, I use RTM plus the Pomodoro app. I do need to copy/paste every task to the Pomodoro app each day. Some integration features/ideas would be perfect.

This would be superb.

Even better (for me, anyway) would be integration with the ipad pomodoro app by codenauts UG.

Found this thread while searching pomodoro remember the milk sync... Needless to say, I think this is a great idea! I am currently using Pomodroido, but would gladly switch to any app that syncs with Remember the Milk. Even better if Remember the Milk had it's own pomodoro app integrated.

I'm surprised to see that even with a lot of comments in favor of it there is more votes against it. I'd like to hear the reasons why not to implement it. :)

nikolavp says:
The way i do it is:
1)Put [], i.e. empty brackets in the task info(the number of brackets = the estimated pomodoros
2)On every completed pomodoro, put an X in the bracket. That way you will have a complete estimate
3)Use "'" and "-" for internal and external interruptions.

thluiz says:
Good Idea nikolavp, I am already doing this on my work.

I usually use the approximate time of the tasks (i.e.: a task with 3 pomodoros takes 1 hour, 4 pomodoros takes 1 hour and half).

Since I´m a Programmer, we tend to use other units of measure (like complexity or function points) and will be wonderful to use it for monitoring my tasks

(As I'm a paying user of RTM :D )

Using RTM for years and recently started with the Pomodoro Technique, they blend quite excellently.

It would be a fantastic addition. For each task a 'Pomodoro' section in the notes tab (or a totally new tab) could include amount of pomodoros spent (or to be spent) on the task (also works as a progress indicator). Calendars should keep a log of pomodoros spent on each task. Integration with pomodoro software is difficult, but maybe full integration with most popular one will do the trick.

The Pomodoro Technique and GTD complement one another so nicely it would be great to have RTM support the Pomodori :-)

Good morning,

I have implemented initial version of Pomodoro app (web-page) for RTM.
I would be thankful if you could give it a try and share your feedback.

http://rtmpomodoro.bitbucket.org

First loading might be somewhat slow, but after JS files are cached it should be pretty fast. Two localizations are supported at the moment - English and Russian.

Feel free to send me a note, or to file a defect in the issue tracker at the project page at Bitbucket.
You can find my contacts at the main page of the app.

Thanks,
Sergey

Hi Sergey,
I've sent my feedback about http://rtmpomodoro.bitbucket.org to your email address.

Dear Sergey,

I also like your http://rtmpomodoro.bitbucket.org very much. This is what I actually needed. I like the simplicity, so I do not have any more function to request at this moment.

Thanks!
Best regards

ttak003 says:
Dear Sergey,

I responded to email as well, but I have some problem with http://rtmpomodoro.bitbucket.org . For some reason, the new tasks will not be updated in rtmpomodoro. I know only tasks due "Today" will be shown in rtmpomodoro, but I cannot find new tasks, which I added now as "due today" in rtmpomodoro.

Also, it may be good to show other tasks due not today as some tasks I need to work more than 1 day, so I put due date as next week or so.

Thank you for your support!
Best regards,
Posted 3 years ago
ttak003 says:
Mr. Sergey fixed both "no-show" tasks and "no due today" tasks.

Now, if we tag tasks "#pomodoro", they appears in rtmpomodoro even it is not "due today".

Thanks again for your quick response!
Best

Hi Sergey,

The app is very useful. Thanks for your effort.

One feature request:
- Currently the tasks "due:today or tag:pomodoro" are displayed by default. If there is a option to use our own smart list filter, it will be awesome.

rean1977 says:
Just let us choose between estimate in pomodoro's or restimate time in minutes. How difficult can that be? Just a simple quick win for you guys and a great gain for a lot of us.

You're doing a great job with RTM, but I think you lacking your (pro)users by not giving feedback on this issue.
