Getting Started


TimeTune is a time blocking and time management application. It has been designed to help you make better use of your time and increase your productivity.

This guide will help you learn the basics of TimeTune and get started with your personal time management system:


QUICK START: YOUR FIRST TIME BLOCK

TimeTune uses time blocks to manage your time.

To create a time block, do this:

  1. Schedule / click on the ‘+’ button / New block.
  2. Choose a start and end time for the block.
  3. Choose a tag to indicate the purpose of the block.
  4. Click on the ‘Accept’ icon on top to save the block.

That’s it! With TimeTune’s time blocks you can build a time management system as simple or as complex as you need, including statistics.

💡 When choosing a tag, you can create a custom tag by clicking on the ‘New tag’ button on the tag chooser.


SCHEDULE

The Schedule section allows you to:

💡 When two blocks overlap, the schedule shows an ‘Overlap’ block. If you don’t care about overlaps, you can disable the ‘Show overlaps’ option on the top menu.


TEMPLATES

Templates are groups of blocks that can be applied to the schedule all at once, allowing you to plan your day really fast.

To create a template, do this:

  1. Templates / click on the ‘+’ button.
  2. Select a name for the template.
  3. Select the amount of days for the template.
  4. Click on the ‘Accept’ icon on top to create the template.

After that, the template will open automatically and you’ll be able to add time blocks to the template.

Once you created the template, you can apply it to your schedule:

💡 If you planned your day by creating individual blocks on the schedule, you can save the day as a template too (Schedule / top menu / Save as template).


TEMPLATE CALENDAR

The template calendar shows which templates will be used on upcoming dates.

Also, it allows you to plan your days in advance by applying templates or clearing dates:

💡 If you applied several templates to a day, you can clear just one if you need it (Template calendar / click on a date / click on the ‘x’ mark next to the template name).


BLOCKS

The Blocks section shows a list of all the individual blocks you created on the schedule, for reference.

This list may be useful if you need to search a block by name, date or tag.

💡 The list of blocks will grow over time, but you can hide ended blocks to make it more manageable (top menu / Hide ended).


TAGS

Tags allow the app to show statistics about your time. That’s why each time block needs at least one tag to indicate the purpose of the block.

The app brings with it a few default tags, but you can create custom tags or edit the default ones:

💡 You can add more than one tag to a time block to indicate you are doing more than one thing during that block.
