Taking screenshots?


Quick question: does ActivityWatch allow taking of periodic screenshots (every three minutes, for example), like TimeDoctor does?

It currently does not, but it should be easy to write a script that does so yourself :slight_smile:

Having screenshots is extremely helpful when attempting to audit your time. It can also be helpful in recreating work after a system crash. If you find something like Activitywatch I would be interested in looking at it.

I’ve messed around with this in the past. My solution is at https://github.com/kovasap/auto-screenshooter. If you want activitywatch to manage it, you could probably register it as a watcher somehow. I’m not sure about getting the image data into the AW UI though.
