In the settings cog in the app menu you can select Preferences and adjust your privacy options, manual time prompt settings and adjust language settings. Preferences are broken down into three categories - general, exclusions and update preferences.
Here you can choose if you wish WiseTime to exclude the URL of your active website alongside the window title. This meta-data can be useful for improving WiseTime's auto-tagging ability because the URL often includes helpful information such as Matter IDs, Case References and search terms, however tagging and all other functions will still work without this information. By default this setting is ticked, but you can adjust this setting at any time by simply ticking or unticking the box for "Exclude additional metadata from time rows".
Excluding App Names & Windows Titles
To help you distinguish your private activities from your work, you can specify which app names and window title keywords you would like excluded from your time logs. Any time entries which contain the app names or window titles that you specify in these settings will not be captured and will not appear in your timeline on the console.
For example, if you add 'Firefox' in the Excluded App Names text box it will exclude all activity in that application. If you would just like to exclude specific websites or program popups you can add 'window title' keywords to the Excluded Window Titles text box. For example, by adding 'Facebook' you will exclude any time that you were on Facebook, no matter which web browser you use and it will not be uploaded into your WiseTime console.
To add multiple options, simply add each name or keyword to a separate box. More rows will be automatically added as you type.
