Suggestion: Tray Icon Menu

Fri Sep 11, 2015 12:49 pm

Hello HideAway support,

Do you think that you could add a menu item (or items) to permit the general enabling/disabling of HideAway (ie suspension of all rules). This suspension might also have a time-out function to conditionally/automatically re-enable rules.
I would like this function as some sites do not respond well to requests emanating from some servers issuing Geo-locations restricted by the site and/or their appropriate governments.

regards

I'd be for this, will talk to the others about it.

What kind of intervals would suit, maybe the choice 5/10/30 minutes ?

Hello Rusticdog,

I think that the range of 5/10/30 minutes and 1 Hour would be suitable. I added the hour entry to allow consideration for those making say several purchases and finalizing financial transactions.

So would you want other times, or happy with initial suggestion of 5/10/30/60 minutes ?

I find 5' a little short; but no, unless you add "until next start up", go with the suggestion.
