Get Started with the ScreenAware Time Tracker

1. Download the Background Time Tracker

ScreenAware tracks your time in the background automatically. For this to work you need to install the background time tracker. Click the button on the right to download the DMG installer to your Mac.

2. Install

  • Once downloaded, execute the file ("ScreenAware_Setup_latest-release.dmg").
  • Drag the ScreenAware icon onto your Applications folder to install. You can close the setup window afterwards.
  • Locate ScreenAware in your Applications folder and execute it.

After the installation is finished, ScreenAware will be present as an icon in your tray bar (top right of the desktop) running in the background. Additionally a window for the initial setup will be shown - see next (and last) step: 3. Setup

3. Setup

To detect which project you are working on, ScreenAware reads the title of open windows on your desktop. You need to allow this in the macOS Security settings:

In the main ScreenAware window register with your name, email, and new password.

Next add one or more projects you are currently working on and describe them with some keywords each.
This is important: the more unambiguous keywords you enter the more you help kickstart the learning process of ScreenAware to detect what project you currently work on.

Now you are done. You can close the window - ScreenAware will attribute your screen activity to the project(s) you setup automatically.
