A lot of times stopwatch is not very convenient, because you have to remember to start it and then also decide what you will be working on. A similar feature, which in a sense works backward, is Tag last untagged time.
When you create a tag using Tag last untagged time, its start time will be:
- If this is the first tag of the day, start time = Day start time (first interaction with computer)
- If tags already exist for today, start time = last tag end time
End time will be current time.
You can access this feature by right clicking ManicTime icon and choose Tag last untagged time.
You can also add a global key shortcut and access it that way.
