Last night we switched on document and activity detail tracking for several of our most popular applications. Starting last night, if you log time in these applications and have the “Collect Window and Document Titles” setting turned on (in either your v1 RescueTime Data collector or on the Monitoring Options settings page if you have the v2 Data Collector), you’ll start to see subtotals by document or activity start to show up in your details reports.
You can expand the rows for these applications to see break down by document name, or activity (like the name of the person you were chatting with for IM applications). There’s also a new Top Activities report for applications that collect detailed information, so you can see who you chat with the most, or which spreadsheets take up the most of your time. Combined with the addition of our new keyword search filter, you’ll be able to dig deeper into your time than you’ve ever been before.
Here is a list of the applications we currently support (Windows and Mac):
Development Tools and System Utilities
Chat / IM / Communication
VLC Media Player
