disclaimer: this post is about unreleased software, everything here can be changed until the final version. This new feature is only in version 1.1.0 that is not available yet (but will be released soon), the latest version is 1.0.1 and can be downloaded from here .
UPDATE: yaTimer 1.1 was released and it includes this feature.
Version 1.1.0 will have countdown timers, using them is very simple, when you add a task you can choose to count up or down (you can change it later) and if you choose down you can specify you start time – and that’s it, the timer will count down and resetting will set the timer back to the initial time.
As you can see from the image I’ve even added a small progress bar that shows you how close you are to finishing.
You can switch between up and down timers from the task properties window, if you look closely you will see that countdown timers works with the timesheet features, at the details at the bottom of the window (or the reports) countdown timer times are kept just like count-up and the total time display at the top right shows the right time.
You can also set a sound to be played when a countdown timer gets to zero.
