Time Tracking Report1. Browse According to Days, Weeks, Months or Years
The most amazing part will be the time tracking report. I prefer to do it on my computer because viewing in a large screen will be more comfortable. There are weekly, monthly and yearly report provided.
2. Browse According to Top Activities
We can also check the top activities this month. As shown in the report, Microsoft Office Word, Windows Explorer, Wiz, Google.com and NotePad and more. Well, as a web editor of TransPhone MS Word is what frequently used in my daily life. As you can see, not only apps and software but also webpage can be recorded by RescueTime.
Note: Wiz is one type of cloud-based note-taking app. Though it is not as famous as Evernote and OneNote does, it is good enough for me. It helps me a lot on note-taking.
