Does Clockify automatically track time?

Is Clockify automatic?

Clockify is mainly a timer based time tracking app. In order to track time you need to hit start and stop on a timer. However, it does an automatic time tracking feature you can use by downloading the desktop app.

How do you automate Clockify?

To access the Auto-tracker you need to download the desktop app to your computer. Hit the “recording” button on the top left corner of the menu to start automatically recording your computer activity. Your work will show up in a list saying what app you used, the window title, URL, and duration.

The downside to Clockify's auto-tracker is that it doesn’t determine different projects within the same app. This will make it difficult to track billable hours if you use the same app for more than one project.
