It varies a little bit depending on what you connect. GPS location, google calendar, gmail, etc just all connect normally and push to our server when they have data.
For tracking files, websites, apps, etc from your computer we have a tracker that runs in the background. It never takes a screenshot or knows the actual content of what you're doing. All it knows is the filepath, domain, document name, window title, etc.
Everything we need to figure out what you spend time working on, but nothing that we don't need (e.g. the actual content).
Hehe, for taxi drivers that might work. But for a digital designer working on multiple projects in a day, that won't cut it. One error and it all falls apart :)
Hello everybody :) Mathias, founder of Timely here. When we released Timely a few years back we always described it as the time tracking app to end time tracking. The truth is that it wasn't quite there at the time.
But now, with AI coming as far it has, we can finally actually able to deliver on that promise.
It's been a long road here and I'm so happy to launch it. Please let us know what you think! :)
Thanks for posting this here, Jelle!
I'm Mathias, founder of Timely and are happy to answer any questions if anyone of you have it. I'm a designer myself, so the product should work great for a lot of people here :)
Good feedback. We'll move this into a separate download page ala Slack probably.
Thank you! :)
You can definitively add manual time as well. The automatically tracked data is only in these widgets on the side. If you click one, we'll tally up all the time from the entries clicked, but then you can round if up or down and edit notes, projects, etc before saving :)
Hey guys, super-thrilled to launch our brand new version of Timely today, with a completely new automatic time tracking solution. You literally never have to try to remember what you worked on again, we'll track it all in the background for you :) There's a little demo video here if you want to see how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qb8bRDm1Zs8&feature=gp-n-y&google_comment_id=z13nt3ua2k3lgdcpy04cjhg5bnzigvtgwrg0k
Would be happy to answer questions!
Thank you, Sir!
Haha, you're the second person to say that. My absolutely favourite comment!
Actually, a better page to actually see the app might be this link; https://timelyapp.com/apple_watch
We finished it after posting this.
