Alerts in ActivityWatch

Hello, new user here.

Can I set an alert after certain time passed ? As in, I’d like to have an alert after I’ve been using the computer for 1 hour?

Thank you for your help.


That feature is unfortunately not available yet, we’d love to have such a feature though and it has been requested before.

I searched docs but couldn’t find this feature yet. Is it present in the road map? Any ETA?

Since ActivityWatch provides REST API, I wrote a python script to show screen time alerts. I have added this script to a cron job and it sends periodic alerts to me.
