Planner apps are very personal. It’s something you’ll be spending a lot of time with. So if you don’t fully enjoy it, you may not be as productive as you can. One of the (very small) features that you should know, is that the lock screen of your database can be customized. Here’s how my primary database looks like:
Believe it or not, as a developer AND a gearhead, seeing this every once in a while does brighten up my day and make me more productive.
So how do you set this background? Here’s how:
- Make sure you set a password for your database. Go to the Preferences panel, and switch to the Database-Specific settings. Set a password there. Guess what, this also protects your database from prying eyes when you’re away from your computer. Just don’t forget the password.
- Use menu command “File” -> “Lock Database”, or Cmd+L if you’re on Mac. This will bring up the lock screen.
- Just drag and drop any photo to this lock screen.
Pretty easy, right? Now, go ahead and personalize your lock screen and tweet us a screenshot. Do so before August 15th and you’ll have a chance to win a Pagico for Desktop license! The license can be gifted, too. So hurry up, we would LOVE to see how cool your lock screen can be!
