Focus Mode

Concentrate on what's important and shut down any background noise.

Updated over a week ago

Any.do was designed to help you organize your life and get more done. But, being productive can be difficult with so many distractions around you. That's why we created Focus Mode, a simple and fun way to keep you concentrated on what's important.

Availability:

The following user-types can take advantage of this feature:

  • Premium users.

  • Family users.

  • Teams users.

The feature is available on mobile apps only.


πŸ› οΈ How does it work?

  • When using the Focus Mode you set a timer for any task you want to dedicate time to complete.

  • While the Focus Mode is counting down, you're growing a tree on your phone.

  • If you get distracted and try to open up a game or another app on your phone, the tree will die and you don't want that!

  • The more time you invest on your tasks, the more trees you'll add to your forest, making it a powerful visual motivator.

  • You may even activate a white-noise option and view your forest to see how much progress was done.

Note: Free account will not have access to this feature and it is available for Personal tasks only at this time.
