Step 4

Productivity timeline

Timeline records your activity and shows where you spend time.

Clockify tracks an app once it's active for longer than 1 minute. But, the timeline won't display time shorter than 10 minutes. So, if you often switch between apps, you'll have a lot of gaps in the productivity timeline. But don't worry, if you're working in some app but switch to another for a moment (eg. check a message), you have 20 seconds to return to the original app and Clockify won't treat that as a new activity so you won't end up with a gap.

Step 5

Save and categorize time

All tracked activities are saved locally on your computer and only you can see them. To send them online to Clockify, create time entries based on them.
