Offline Work

New Feature

We understand that you do different types of work each day, and not all of that work is done on your computer. That’s why we’ve added the ability to track work that isn’t automatically recorded by the RescueTime Assistant.

At the end of the day (or whenever you have the opportunity), you can click β€˜Add Offline Work’ in the RescueTime assistant and record additional offline Focus Work (white boarding, brainstorming, or written work done on paper), Meetings (for phone calls or in-person meetings), or Other Work (offline work that doesn’t fall under one of the other work types).
