Track on app startup

I often come back to work after leaving and do more work. The problem is I forget to start a timer again. The computer isn't idle it's off and then I turn it back on so there's no tracking if I forget to hit the timer.

Please add an option to start tracking on app startup or wake from sleep or something like that. I like the idle feature but that doesn't work in this case.

    Hi Joseph,

    Sorry for the late reply!

    Timelime already has a feature that's probably helpful in the case you are describing.
    If you forget to start the timer after you return to work, you can do this:

    Start the timer for the task you have been working on.
    Then right-click on Timelime’s status item in the menu bar and select “Move start back in time”.
    Finally select “XX minutes (last system wake)” from the menu to set the start time of the current timing to when you returned to work.

    I hope this helps,
