5. Information about the version of WiseTime that you are running
Manual Away Time Prompt
The manual time prompt is a helpful reminder for logging offline activity. If enabled, the app will use your set time preferences to detect inactivity (e.g no mouse or keyboard activity) and prompt you to add manual time upon your return. You can set the length of inactivity that triggers the prompt and this setting is adjustable from 2-10 minutes.
If you choose to log time from the prompt, a pop-up window will give you options to categorize your time and alter the amount logged.
If you do not want to record your time you can ignore the notification or click Don’t Log. Keep in mind you can add manual entries at any time in your console.
Depending on your operating system set-up and preferences, your WiseTime notifications (eg. Add Manual Time prompt) may be blocked from appearing on your desktop. In both MacOS and Windows, WiseTime notifications will not pop up if you have activated Do Not Disturb (Mac) or Focus Assist (Windows 10) mode in your desktop settings. Notifications will, however, continue to be displayed in your desktop message centre or notification history if you wish to view them at any time.
