Keyboard Shortcuts

Hello Elisi users!

We recently introduced keyboard shortcuts to Elisi. With keyboard shortcuts you can easily add planner items, check off habits, add the number of glasses of water you have had, or even add notes. Keyboard shortcuts works on most platforms with a keyboard attached.

One objective we had when designing it was to have predictable shortcuts; we wanted the key combinations for common tasks to stay the same. This way, you can memorize the shortcuts without always relying on on-screen tips.

The other objectives were to have a system that’s as self-explanatory as possible, and to have a shortcut system that covers most common actions. In order to fulfill these objectives, we went through several internal iterations of shortcut design, and settled on the one that made the most sense.

To start using keyboard shortcuts, simply press the command/control key. The UI will indicate how to proceed.

We hope keyboard shortcuts will help you become more efficient with Elisi, and we hope Elisi will help you better live your life.

New feature: Revamped Habit Tracker

We’ve finally published a major update to Elisi’s habit module. The updated module now supports habit streaks and a monthly overview. Streaks are widely supported in other habit-tracking apps. Seeing how many times in a row you have been punching a habit greatly increases your chances of maintaining that habit.

We spent a lot of time designing the streak feature: how it should behave, and the best way to integrate it with the current minimal UI. Simply piling up new controls into the UI wasn’t the way to go. We knew that the new UI had to be kept clean in order to be useful. Chaos results in abandonment.

Through a difficult process of design and redesign, we finally settled on the current iteration. The current streak numbers are integrated into the checkboxes, and other streak information is displayed in a new habit details view. We also added a monthly view for habits, so you can check your recent performance.

We hope you like the updates to the habit module.
