In this post we’ll give you some insight to the usage statistics of different Toggl Button integrations and we’ll reveal our latest addition – Pomodoro timer for Toggl Button.
Toggl Button is a Chrome extension that always seems to be surprising us. When the project first started, it was meant to be an experiment to see if users need a way to track time without specifically opening any Toggl products. The success of this tool was almost instant and the numbers have been rapidly growing ever since.
Today, Toggl Button is at the point where the extension has more than 63 000 users. We have also have broken the 50 integrations barrier – as of the latest release, Toggl Button has 51 integrations. The last two to join our family were Draftin and FogBugz. For these two integrations I would like to thank to0namiSB and LarsDR for their contribution to the project.
With all the users and integrations it is interesting to know what integrations are the most popular among our users. These are the top 5 integrations/features that have been used the most to start the Toggl timer:
It’s not surprising to see Trello at the top of the chart. While Trello is great for making long time plans and dragging things from card to card, it is in need of a good time tracking solution. Luckily the Toggl Button and Trello get along really well and make a great team.
A surprise to us was number two in the chart – the dropdown menu option. This is actually not an integration with an external tool, but a simple link to start the timer. This means that a lot of users have found it comfortable to start the timer from the Toggl Button extension dropdown menu. I have to agree that this is one of the most convenient way to start tracking from any page you are currently viewing.
Introducing Pomodoro for Toggl
I’ve left the best news for last.
There has been a lot of feedback about Pomodoro and Toggl. Now it’s time to jump out of your trousers because Toggl Button is delighted to welcome the Pomodoro timer! All credit goes to Stvad for the great work on this feature.
With the Pomodoro timer you can set up notifications that will let you know that it’s time to take a break.
This is what it looks like:
If time is up, a sound is played and a notification pops up to let you know you’ve done good and deserve to take a break.
This is the first version of Pomodoro timer, so if you have any feedback or suggestions about improvements, you are welcome to write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s good to see that more and more users have found their way to Toggl Button and find it useful in their daily workflow. There are still many cool improvements and features coming, so stay tuned and keep Toggl Button ready to track!
