Changing default sound effects/messages? - miyazakipiiman - 07-19-2022

The Pomodoro feature for FocusMe has served me well. It's allowed me to study my digital flashcards without having to force myself to. But I've been trying to figure out how to change the default sound effect and message that plays whenever the Pomodoro starts.

I'm ultimately trying to use FocusMe to gamify studying but it doesn't feel very much like a game when I see a message saying "Begin work!" with a default xylophone jingle, you know? So I'm trying to change that. I'm going to see if I can do it myself while this thread floats around, but I would like to know one of two things:
1. Is there a way to manually change them in the program files itself? (i.e. switching out a .wav file and replacing the default message in a text file or something)
2. Is there any hope that this will be added as a default feature?

I was unsure whether to put this in the Getting Help section or the Suggestions and Feedback section cause it kind of overlaps with both, but for now I'm putting it in the Getting Help section.

Thanks.

Ah, glad that you brought that up! Currently, that's a feature that we aren't supporting yet but we can definitely submit a feature request about that. Please do it here so that we can also ask everyone's thoughts about it: https://focusme.com/feature-requests/

Our devs normally look into that and take actions based on the public's demand. But definitely, every feature request is being considered. Wink
