How to open a blocked app

  1. Open System Preferences.
  2. Go to Security & Privacy and select the General tab.
  3. If you've been blocked from opening an app within the past hour, this page will give you the option to override this by clicking the temporary button 'Open Anyway'.
  4. You'll be asked one more time if you're sure, but clicking Open will run the app.

How to 'Allow Apps from Anywhere'

But there is a third, hidden option: 'Allow apps from anywhere'. This used to be an option in earlier versions of macOS, but disappeared when macOS Sierra arrived. However you can get the Anywhere option back.

We will say right away that we don't recommend this setting, which puts you at risk of installing malware under the guise of legitimate software. But if you are determined on this course, it's possible to make that option reappear with a line of code in Terminal.

Open Terminal and enter the following code to get your Anywhere option:

sudo spctl --master-disable

Now press Return, and you will be asked to enter your password. Once that's done, open System Preferences (if it's already open, you'll need to quit it and restart to see the new options) and go to the Security & Privacy section.

How to remove the 'Anywhere' option

If you share your Mac with someone else it might be wise to get rid of the Anywhere option. To hide it again, you'll need to go to Terminal again, and this time type:

sudo spctl --master-enable

To organize tasks and make it easier to find the required task in the list, use the Task sorting function.

With the help of the Task sorting function, you can sort the tasks according to the selected criteria, as well as arrange the tasks in the list.

The function call is also available when the timer is active on another task and does not affect the time registration process.

To open the window, press the Sort button.

In the Sort by field, you must select the option for sorting tasks in the list.

The following task sorting options are available:

  • Default - the list of tasks in its original form, sorted by task priority
  • Name - sorting by task name. The list is sorted alphabetically according to Directions.
  • Priority - sorting by task priority
  • Project - sorting by project name. The list is sorted alphabetically according to Directions.
  • Updated - sort by update date. When sorting by Updated, all tasks that have been recently updated will be at the top of the list.
  • Created - sorting by creation date. When sorting by Created, all new tasks will be at the top of the list.

RMClient - Окно сортировки задач

In the Directions field, you are prompted to select an option for ordering tasks in the list:

  • ASC - sort results in ascending order
  • DESC - sort results in descending order

To apply sorting, select the required options for the Sort by and Directions fields and click the Apply button.
To reset sorting, click the Reset button.

To hide sorting, click again on the sorting icon in the top bar of the application.

After sorting is applied, the bottom panel of the application will show the number of tasks displayed and hidden by the filter.

RMClient - Окно сортировки задач

 

The Filter function and the Task Sorting function are interrelated. If you previously applied the Filter function to the task list, then applying the Sort function will sort the task list that was previously selected by the filter.

If there are several tasks added to the Favorites in the Task List, then after applying sorting to the entire Task List, the tasks in the Favorites and the rest of the tasks in the list will be sorted independently according to the selected sorting type.

To find the issue in the list, use Issue Filter.

With the Issue Filter, you can select issues for one or more projects (Projects field),  status (Statuses), issue priority (Priorities) and other parameters, or by applying combinations of these filter criteria.

To open a window, press the Filter button.  

The filter allows you to select displayed issues by the following criteria:

  • Projects - list of project names with issues assigned to you
  • Trackers - list of issue trackers
  • Statuses - list of issue status
  • Priorities - list of Issue Priorities
  • Assigned - list of Accounts to which the issue can be assigned

In order to apply the filter select the appropriate combination of fields and click Apply. To reset the filter, click Reset.

To hide the filter, click the filter icon in the top pane again.

For filter fields, the combo-list search function is available.

Choosing different parameters and their combinations will help you to find the desired issues faster. For example, using the Statuses field you can select all New issues and then filter «important» in the Priorities field.

After applying the filter to the specified parameters, the application filters the issues in the desired order. In this way, you will be able to concentrate on new important issues.

Also, after applying the filter in the bottom pane of the application will be shown the number of issues displayed and hidden by the filter. To reset the filter, click on the Reset filter basket icon in the bottom pane of the application.


The selection of fields is interrelated. When selecting a specific Project, other fields will display all options, but only those that have issues of the selected project will be active. This logic works with all filter fields.

You can also open the Filters panel,  by using the CMD+F/Ctrl+F key combination.

Search allows you to find a specific issue by a word or phrase and is performed by all issue fields that are displayed in RMClient. The exception is the time spent on the issue.

After entering the first symbol, the issues will be filtered out. Those ones under your search criteria will be active, as well as the running issue, the rest will be «darkened». In case there is no match you will see Not found.

RMClient - Search

This button allows you to immediately synchronize the client with your Redmine server to update the task list.

You can also refresh the task list by right-clicking the application icon in the tray and selecting the Refresh option from the menu or applying the CMD+R/Ctrl+R key combination.

This link leads you to the Settings screen.

Tasks that belong to the same project are highlighted in a common list of issues in the same color and sorted according to the priority. 

When you hover on an issue, the issue name and isse attributes are highlighted.

The issue attributes include: 

  • Task name,
  • Priority,
  • Task ID in Redmine,
  • Project name,
  • Task status,
  • The first lines of the Task Description,
  • Total task time currently spent (displayed in hours, format 00:00)
  • Estimate of implementation time - a preliminary estimate of the time in which the task will be completed (displayed in minutes, format 00:00).

Note. Depending on your Redmine settings, the app will show the corresponding task attributes. For example, in the case of the blank Description field of the Redmine task, this information will not be reflected.

Also, the Favorites, Edit, and Start buttons appear while pointing to the task.

If there are many tasks in the Task List, you can use the Filter and Sort functions to select, sort, and organize tasks by any of the features, such as Project, Task Status, and Task Priority.

An Issue displays:

  • Task name,
  • Priority,
  • Task ID in Redmine,
  • Project name,
  • Task status,
  • The first lines of the Task Description,
  • The total time of the task actually spent at the moment (displayed in hours, format 00:00). If the current task has subtasks with a filled field of the actual time spent, then the total time of the task will be displayed in the format of 00:00 (00:00) taking into account the time for the subtask.
  • Estimate of implementation time - preliminary estimate of the time in which the task will be completed (displayed in minutes, format 00:00).  If the current task has subtasks with the filled-in time estimation field, then the total time of the task will be displayed in the format 00:00 (00:00) taking into account the time of the subtask.

The task name is a link to the task in Redmine.

The line below the Task Name contains the Priority, Task Id in Redmine, Project Name, and Task Status, also a single link to the Project Task in Redmine.

Note. Depending on your Redmine settings, the app will show the corresponding task attributes. For example, in the case of the blank Description field of the Redmine task, this information will not be reflected.

The new Task will appear in your Task List. If Filter or Task Sorting rule is not previously selected, by default each new task will be first in the list. Next, the task will be moved to priority. 

 

When you hover on a Task, the Favorites, Edit, and Start buttons appear.

To start the timeout in the Task, click the Start button. After starting, the Task with the active timer is displayed.
