Certain applications and websites naturally require less input (mouse/keyboard) while they're in use. Examples of this are Video and VOIP apps like Skype, Zoom, and Google Hangouts.
By marking specific apps and websites as 'active', you can ensure they won't go idle on you. So, let's dive in and get your apps and websites working just the way you like them!
To customize settings for your apps and websites, follow these steps:
Navigate to your device's Settings
Locate the Productivity section
Choose 'Apps & Websites' tab
Choose apps & websites you want to change settings for
Click on Activity Settings
Apply one of two labels:
Or Always active - On Call
Wondering which option suits you better?
📽️ Here's a quick tutorial showing more:
Activity Settings: Always Active - On Call
Always active - On Call' is perfect for video apps and websites. It automatically recognizes when the microphone or camera are in use. So, Insightful won't go idle when your employees are on calls, even if they're not actively clicking or typing.
Activity Settings: Always Active
When you're in a creative, brainstorming, or study mode, certain apps and websites don't require constant activity. In such scenarios, opting for 'Always Active' is an excellent choice.
Activity Settings: Default
If you want to go back to the original settings, just choose the Default option. The default setting monitors your keyboard and mouse use. If there's no activity for as long as your Idle Time settings specify, it will be recorded as Idle Time.
Activity Settings: Don't Track Time
Don't want to track time for specific apps and websites? Choose this option, and those apps/websites won't show up in reports.
You can also change these settings in bulk.
