Pomodoro Timer

The missing thing in todoist is "Pomodoro Timer" which lets you focus on a task without interruptions.

Recently I came across Kanbanflow which implemented Pomodoro timer in a very elegant way. I really like the way it works.

So I suggest you guys to add this feature at least for the Premium users moving forward

I like to vote for this too. While I am researching Pomodoro apps I recognized how redundant this would be. Having a ToDo app and a separate Pomodoro app where I have to add my tasks again.

I like the main idea of Pomodoro to stay focused on one task for 25 min and this could be easily archived with a kitchen timer. But I also like to have a kind of logging where I can see how long I needed for a task. This would help me for better future planning.

+1, having stats on how many pomodoro sessions were needed to complete a task would be great. It would help to understand whether the tasks are properly sized. In my personal experience with kanbanflow, having pomodoro timer integrated with the app was very helpful in keeping me focused on the task.

I really love the way KanbanFlow implemented this feature.

I'm just refreshing status of my requests (per scheduled reminder in todoist ;-) ). Any update on providing this functionality?

Found that Voting box is closed for now. +1 for this feature. It's simple, but VERY helpful.
Thanks a lot!

Thanks for all of the votes! The more people who vote for a feature, the higher a priority it will become.

In the meantime, we do have an integration with Toggl that I use myself. A "start/stop timer" option shows up at the end of every task in Todoist. That task will then be added automatically to your Toggl log in their desktop app. You can find instructions on how to use this at the link below:
