Start a timer in advance (negative time)

The following belongs to the latest Mac App Update. It is no longer possible to start a timer in advance. Previously it was possible to start a Timer at 9:43 for 9:45. Since one of the latest updates it now says “Duration must be greater than zero seconds”.

In my opinion this is a huge issue. With this restriction I now have to wait until it’s 9:45 to actually start the timer for this time. This means I have to open Clockify twice and even have to think about this.

Please add an Option to force a negative duration, currently it’s just possible to accept this fact. So you added a “feature” wich makes the usage of the App more difficult.

That doesn’t help because your suggestion assumes that I know how long the task will take. The convenience of the timer in advance was that I could finish one task and start the next one in advance. We always round the times up to 15 minutes, that’s the crucial factor.
