Effortless understanding and self-awareness
RescueTime works by automatically gathering data about what applications, websites, and documents you are spending time on. There is no manual data entry.
RescueTime then crunches that data into interesting and actionable insights, presented on a web-dashboard and emailed to you once a week.
Never ask "where the #%$! did my day go?"
Have a crystal-clear sense of what activities you spend time on. Understand your patterns, peaks and valleys when it comes to computer time. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Discover the hidden time wasters that keep you from spending time like you really want to. Get more out of your day by filtering out distracting activities and spending more time "in the zone."
In addition to understanding your time, RescueTime also gives you tools to help you change it, if you wish. Track progress towards goals you define, or block out all distracting websites for a while when you need extra focus.
This is a private tool for your benefit.
RescueTime takes your privacy seriously. You are in complete control of it. No one but you will be able to look at any of the information you gather with RescueTime. Personal-analytics means just that, it's personal. This is a tool for you to understand your time better. Your manager or boss will have no access to it. You can use it as you see fit. It's all up to you.
