We will be bringing our main database offline for about 30 minutes tomorrow night starting around 10PM EST (03:00 GMT). You won’t be able to login to your account during this maintenance window. However, you’ll still be able to use the web app and the iOS/Andrdoid apps just fine, provided you’re already logged in. Your data will resume syncing with the cloud (and between your devices) once we bring the database back online.
Sorry for the interruption. We’ll post updates on twitter @nirvanahq to let you know when we start and when we’re done.
We will be upgrading some of our backend systems on Saturday, February 8 between 1:00am-1:30am EST (6:00-6:30 GMT). You likely won’t notice a thing if you are already signed in to your account (on the web or via mobile devices), but you may not be able to login (create a new session) for 2 brief periods during this maintenance window.
Our apologies in advance for the forshadowed blip, but the upside is that we’ll be better prepared for growth on the flipside.
Nirvana is a GTD® task manager for Getting Things Done®.
Capturing thoughts whenever they occur and confidently drilling down to the thing you should be doing right now is at the heart of Nirvana — freeing your mind to be in the moment and focused on the task at hand.
This app is the mobile extension of the critically acclaimed, cloud-based Nirvanahq.com desktop app — the trusted system of thousands around the world, always in-sync, and now always with you.
We will be moving some things around this evening, starting around 9 PM Eastern. Parts of Nirvana may go offline for brief windows, but if you’re already logged in before we start, chances are you won’t notice anything. Will update this post as time frames firm up.
We’ve been working on this for awhile, and we’re happy to announce that you can now direct email to your Nirvana Inbox as a Bcc: recipient. :-)
Say what? OK, in case you didn’t know, Nirvana lets you create actions by email. When you send an email to your Nirvana account, the email subject becomes the action’s name, and the email body becomes the action’s notes. You can find your Inbox address on your Nirvana account dashboard, or by selecting Getting Started from the pulldown menu on the top-right of the screen (when you’re logged in to https://app.nirvanahq.com/).
While you could always send yourself an email as a normal To: or Cc: recipient, you can now include your Nirvana inbox address using the Bcc: field, which comes in handy when you’re sending an email to someone and want to send a copy to your Nirvana Inbox without your recipients knowing about your Nirvana Inbox email address.
An added bonus: this also means that you can set up forwarding rules in mail apps such as Gmail to (for example) automatically forward incoming email with specific search patterns to also arrive in your Nirvana inbox.
If you have any handy use-cases or tricks for using bcc, please be sure to share the knowledge. :-)
Update – Reminder:
For those folks that have been with us for a while – if you are still using the old Email-to-Inbox addresses pointing to the Nirvanahq.com domain, you need to make sure you update to use the Nirvanahq.in domain (the portion of the address prior to the @ symbol remains the same). The .com addresses had been deprecated for some time, but with this change are no longer valid.
