Add a Day and Year Progress Bar to the Windows Taskbar
ProgressBar is a new program that displays the day and year progress on the Windows taskbar. It is a simple program, designed to improve productivity by providing the progress information when you glance on the two progress rings that it adds to the taskbar when you install it.
ProgressBar is available for Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system. The app is not free, but available for a one-time purchase of $5.
You need to sign out and on again after installation before you may add Progress Bar to the taskbar; this is done by right-clicking on the Windows 10 taskbar and selecting Toolbars > ProgressBar.
The app displays the progress of the current day and year. Days start at 9 and end at 17 by default, but you can modify these parameters with a left-click on the icon.
The day and year circles fill up as time progresses. For the day, it begins with 0% at 9:00 and ends with 100% at 17:00. The year progress bar is self-explanatory, as it progresses for each passing day.
The app supports light and dark modes already on Windows 10 and switches between the two modes automatically when they are changed.
The progress bar may be useful to some users already, but future versions of the application will improve it significantly. Its developer plans to introduce new functionality, including the ability to add dates for custom goals so that you can keep track of them and more flexible day start and end times.
ProgressBar is an interesting app that may appeal to some users in its basic first version already, as it provides a direct view of the work time that has passed already on a day and the time that is left.
The ability to keep track of custom goals that you set could make this an interesting choice for developers, members of a project team, and anyone else who like s a direct view of how certain goals or projects progress.
I'd like to see an option to create custom deadlines, not just one, and track them all on the taskbar. It is often the case that you work on multiple projects at once, and keeping track of them all would be useful, e.g. deadlines for articles that you need to write or development steps that need to be completed at a certain time. The improvement would certainly be reflected in the application's rating.
