Improving Tracking with App Integrations

Timing already tracks most apps without any additional setup. However, for a few apps, tracking can be improved by taking the following extra steps.

Calendar

Timing can show your calendar events right on the timeline and create time entries for them:

To get started with our calendar integration, please refer to this article.

Obsidian

By default, the Obsidian note–taking app does not provide useful information in its window title. However, if you install this Obsidian plug-in, the title of your current note will be included in your Obsidian window title, from where it can be picked up by Timing.

JetBrains IDEs

By default, the IDEs developed by JetBrains do not report the path of the currently edited document. However, if you enable the "Always show full paths in the window header" option in your IDEs preferences, under "Appearance & Behavior > Appearance > Window Options", Timing will be able to pick up the current document's path from the IDEs window title. (Please make sure to restart your IDE for changes to this setting to take effect.)

This applies to the following IDEs:

  • AppCode
  • Android Studio
  • PhpStorm
  • PyCharm
  • IntelliJ IDEA
  • CLion
  • GoLand
  • RubyMine
  • WebStorm
  • JetBrains Rider
