I only use Slack for work. So this seemed like an obvious trigger for my Work focus mode. BUT I actually work OUTSIDE of Slack. So while the window is open on my desktop, a completely different window is active. And whenever the Slack window is not the active window, the focus mode turns back to normal.
I want an option where the “Work” focus mode would turn on when I opened/activated Slack and turned off when I turn off Slack. In other words, if the app is running, I’m working, otherwise I’m not.
I have another focus mode I use when using Scrivener or ProWritingAid, but again, the trigger only works if I never leave the app. And while I’m more single-app focused when I’m writing, I still do research in apps like Firefox too.
I thought “hey! Keyboard Maestro” - which yes, it has the trigger I want, but it hasn’t AFAICT added focus mode switching as an action.
