On Settings

It is especially important when frequently updated RSS feeds are involved to regularly delete notifications at frequent intervals. This cleans out the main memory. Therefore, Makagiga provides diverse settings for automatically dealing with RSS feeds. You find these by right-clicking on RSS Feeds in the tree structure on the left and then selecting Settings: RSS Feeds in the context menu. In the straightforward dialog that opens, you can now specify various settings for updating and deleting feeds. You can also modify the appearance of the indicator (Figure 5).

Seek and You Shall Find

The tree view in Makagiga can become confusing especially when lots of functions are used repeatedly. This means that routine tasks like searching through RSS notifications can become noticeably more difficult in comparison to searching with a fresh installation of the application.

Makagiga seeks to avoid this issue with a search function underneath the tree view. This function lets you enter a random search term in the entry field. The software then lists the search results in the tree view, practically in real time. The Sort By option underneath the search field lets you choose various search criteria to filter the results (Figure 6).

Regularly recurring searches can also be saved making it unnecessary to enter the terms each time.

You will also find another Tasks button underneath the search field and the Tree button. The latter button determines the display of the left window segment. It is activated by default. Clicking on this button causes the program to switch from the tree view to the task list, which lists the individual tasks sorted by time period. This gives you an immediate overview of the tasks that need to be completed in the short run. The priority of each task can be displayed if desired.
