Disclaimer (again): version 2.5 of yaTimer, my time tracking software, wasn’t released yet, the feature I talk about here may change until the final release, yaTimer 2.5 will be a free upgrade for all existing customers.
This is an often requested feature, and one that I objected to for a long time, when you start or stop a task (your choice) a small balloon will pop up and ask you to enter a comment for the newly created timing event.
If you ignore the message it will fade out and disappear after a few seconds.
The reason that I objected to this feature is that I strongly believe that starting and stopping a timer has to be a one click operation – it has to be fast and easy – but I understand how this feature can be very useful (I’ll actually be using it myself) and I hope that with the automatic disappearance this is still an easy one click operation when you don’t need to enter a comment.
Update: I forgot to write that this feature is optional and disabled by default, it can be turned on from the settings window.
