Hightrack and the Heartbleed Bug

You may be wondering if Hightrack has been affected with the Heartbleed bug. No worries, everything is now safe and our web is currently unaffected.

Early this week we did detect the vulnerability in our systems, but we immediately took the necessary steps: we doubled backed up all your data (Premium and non-Premium users), we updated libraries and SSL certificates, and we deployed a batch of technical measures. All good in our side :-)

Want to change your password anyway? Just head to Preferences > Account and click on “Edit”. Thanks!

  • Calendar views: Agenda, Week or Month. Now with color-coded events —your schedule never looked so good!

But this is just our first step in the Android world. We’re already working on future releases with more features and added functionality for the next months. Stay tuned.

New in Premium: Email to Task

Email to Task

We know that many of you have been waiting for this nice feature. And it’s already here. From now on you can turn any email into task very easily. Just send (or forward) any message to one particular email address, and Hightrack will take care of the rest.

Your personal address

As Premium user, now you have a unique email address to send your messages. You will find it in Settings > Account.

How to create tasks

You can use both the Subject line and the Body of the message:

  • Subject: add here the main information for the task: name, list it belongs to, tags and due date (currently, it accepts today & tomorrow).
  • Body: the body of the message will be saved in the Description field (you can add up to 280 characters). If you send more text, it will be turn into a note.

Subject Line Syntax

This is the syntax base: Task name @list #tag1 #tag2 #tag3 !due date

The only mandatory part is the task name. It’s up to you if you want to add a list, tags or due date. You must always write the task name in the first place; after that, the order you write the tags, list or due date doesn’t matter.

Due Date

When you set a due date for a task, you can use both natural language and regular, day of the month dates. You just need to enter ! followed by the due date.

  • Natural language: use the word “next” followed by a day of the week: !next monday, !Next Sunday, !Next Wed, !next fri, !NEXT TUE
  • Regular dates: just enter the day and month: !March 12, !APR 20, !JUNE 30, !DEC 01, !12 September, !30 Nov, !11 Feb

Here are some examples that show you how to combine all possible elements in the subject line of an email to Hightrack:
Some examples to get you an idea:

  • Make report with last sales @marketing #reports #team !next friday
  • Debug homepage code #debug !tomorrow
  • Call Mike for next meeting !Apr 20
  • Update Netflix movie list @personal #online #movies #family !next tue
  • Clean up garage @house !next sunday
  • Prepare memo for upcoming convention @sales #team !today

As we receive tons of tasks by Email, we think you will love this new feature, because it will speed up your workflow tremendously. Well, go enjoy it :-)

Latest updates on our Learning Zone

As you probably know, Hightrack vision is not just creating software to organize stuff and get things done. For us Productivity is much more than that. The Smart Work involves not only a powerful tool, but building a set of personal and professional habits that will stick with you forever. Those things will help you to get more results and become better everyday.

In our Learning Zone we tell you how to do that. And it keeps growing with articles, guides, tips and smart uses of Hightrack. Check out the latest updates:




Keep on learning :-)

New: Search tool for tasks and events

Search tool

Today, we’re introducing in our web app a long-awaited feature: Search. Now from Tasks and Calendar you can launch the floating Search panel, and look for either tasks or events.

It does a real time search. While you’re typing, you can see all the results right behind the search field. And no need to leave your keyboard! Just hit the arrow keys to browse the results and press Enter to jump inmediately to that task or event.

The tool searchs within all your tasks lists and calendars, including completed tasks and past events.

Now that you’re probably adding more and more content to Hightrack, we reckon you will welcome this new feature. And more are on their way!

Improved multi selection on web app

Multi select

Last web update included another cool improvement that not everyone has discovered yet (yep, we didn’t say anything on purpose :-)

In Tasks now multi selection works the way you’re used to in your computer: selecting contiguous or non-contiguous tasks. The process couldn’t be easier.

To select contiguous tasks just click the first task and then SHIFT+CLICK the last task. To select non-contiguous click and press ALT while selecting your tasks (in Mac CMD works too).

More possibilities…

Just to name three things you can do with multiple selection:

  • Bulk Edit: select all tasks (contiguous or non-contiguous), click on any task title and then click on Edit. You’ll be able to assign a common Due date, Tags, Time/Energy or even a Description.
  • Mark as done: select any tasks you want and then press SPACEBAR to mark all of them as done.
  • Move at once: just select the tasks, drag and drop. Very handy when you’re processing a bunch of tasks, and you want to move them from your Inbox to any other list.

We do recommend to use multi selection as much as you can. Because it will speed up your workflow amazingly, specially when you’re managing, ordering and processing tasks.

New nice additions in our web app

While we’re on the home stretch of our Android and iOS7 apps (good news are coming in the next weeks), we’re continuously improving our web app. Today we’ve introduced several features we think you’re going to like it. Give us a minute to explain them.

Better Add/Edit task window

Add - EditAdding or editing tasks is probably one of the most important actions in Hightrack. That’s why we’re constantly thinking how to improve it. We wanted you to add tasks even faster, and this is what we came up with:

  • Reordered fields: Due date and List fields are now on top, right behind the Title field. So you can add the key information of any task without having to go further than the second line.
  • Add Tags with commas: although you can continue adding tags in the old way (type for autocomplete and then Enter), now you can add existing or new tags using commas between words.
  • Browse calendars from keyboard: this is a biggie, because when the calendar popup appears (Due or Start date, but also in Calendar), now you can browse the calendar using the arrows of your keyboard, without your mouse.

All these new additions make possible to create any task adding the Title, Due date and List from the keyboard, even faster, without touching your mouse.

Hit Enter to add the task. Type the Title, hit Tab to jump to Due date field, move to the desired day and hit Enter. And you’re done. Just hit Enter to save the new task. Just 10 seconds.

Collapsing Subtasks

SubtasksSubtasks play a very important role on the Smart Work. They help you to avoid too many lists, and you can split one big tasks into small chunks or previous actions. Now in Hightrack they work even better.

  • Subtasks counter: the main task now has a small badge with the total subtasks.
  • Collapse/Expand the whole family: you can expand or collapse any ‘task family’ in order to have an clearer view of your lists. Just click on the arrow next to the main task.

Improved Preferences

We cleaned, redesigned and reorder some parts of our Preferences. In Preferences > Calendar you will find new options for your calendars, such set the default duration for new events. And the Account section now allows you to include your name or change your default email address.

There’re about 25 more additions and fixes in this last update, but instead of talking about them, we want you to enjoy them. Just log into your account and make today something special :-)
