Work Log & Activity Timer 3.1 Ranking & Summary
Work Log & Activity Timer 3.1 description
Work Log & Activity Timer 3.1 keeps track of the time you spend at the computer on projects or activities. It keeps track of all the times when you use the mouse or keyboard. You can also set it to automatically change project when you use particular windows.
It can be used as a project timer, a session timer, or an eye protection reminder. Activity Timer can track all the times when you use the mouse or keyboard. In this way you can find out exactly how much time you spend at the computer on each of your projects or tasks. You can also play sounds or show screen alarms as a reminder that it is time to stop work, or take a short break before you start again - see Session Alarms & progress indicators.
The other main thing you can do is to play or show reminders to look away from the screen for a few seconds from time to time as is advised by eye doctors - this can help mitigate that tiredness of the eyes that can result from long periods of staring at a computer monito. It has a straightforward layout and is extremely easy to use.
- Treat as idle time whenever mouse or keyboard are idle for more than a set period of time
- Auto ends the session if idle for even longer - when you leave the computer running and go away for five minutes say. Auto restarts as soon as you start to use the keyboard or mouse again.
- You can set the time of day when each day rolls over to the next
- You can set it to start whenever you start the computer
- You can set it to run as a tray icon (in the area next to the system clock), so that you can show it any time with a right click on the icon
