Enable auto tracker

Clockify can track what apps and websites you use so you can later create time entries based on time spent in other apps, either one by one or in bulk (data is visible only to you).

Note: The version on the App Store doesn't have auto tracker or idle detection due to App Store's policy. You'll need to manually download and install the version from our website.

Don't forget about the timer

Desktop app has a lot of handy features that can help you better track time, which you can enable in Preferences:

  • Auto start/stop: Let Clockify automatically start the timer when you turn on your computer and stop the timer when the computer is turned off.
  • Idle detection: Forgot to stop the timer? Mac desktop app can recognize when you're inactive so you can discard idle time. (Note: Not available if you installed the app via App Store.)
  • Turn on Idle detection in Preferences
  • Reminders: Receive a notification when you forget to start the timer.
  • Turn on time tracking reminders in Preferences
