ActoTracker is application for keeping track of activities on your desktop so you don’t have to.
Its purpose is to help you to answer questions such as:
- what was that document I was working on Monday morning last week
- what was the email that let me to change this file
- what was the website I used to look up this information
What can it be used for:
- system-wide bookmarking and history service
- records entire document workflow e.g. bug fixing
- keep track of a research material
Select a document by activating its window (window is foremost)
OR select a message in an application such as Outlook
Add it to the active journal
How does it work:
The ActoTracker keeps track of when you open and how long you work with a document. Besides documents, it will also record URLs of websites you visit and is even able to track your emails, calendar events and chat sessions. This functionality is provided in form of AppleScript plugins a user can easily tweak or create their own, which makes it very flexible and extensible.
Think of the ActoTracker as a bookmarking app for your desktop documents or applications
The recording of activities happens quietly in the background without interfering with your work. It is also possible to record events manually or use filters to customize this behavior in detail.
The ActoTracker organizes records in journals, where each record can be annotated and tagged. All records are fully searchable within the application itself and the Spotlight.
With this kind of power comes also great deal of responsibility. Ultimately, it is always you who is in the control.
