A timely update: Work smarter with the in-doc Timer

Nothing beats a high productivity work session that allows you to regain your time for the things that matter most in life. We are stoked to introduce our new in-doc timer to help you do just that. With the Timer, you can find focus flow with Pomodoro mode, create reusable schedules for your synchronous meeting documents, or get a sense of your document working time. Brainstorming sessions, standups, retros, team meetings, just became a whole lot easier!

Check out the new timer icon in the bottom right of any document to get started 🔥

You can also navigate through a document from the command line using #​ to jump to different section headers.
