What is Memory for Mac?
Memory is Timely's tool that records everything work on to a beautiful private timeline. It captures all the time you spend in different files, work apps, websites, calendar events, meetings and GPS locations.
No timers, no notesーit works automatically in the background while you work, so you don't have to manually track your time or remember what you've worked on. By capturing everything you do, you get a complete picture of what you work on each day. 🖼
How do I set up Memory for Mac?
First, download it! There are three places you can do so:
1.) When creating your account for the first time, you'll be prompted to download Memory for Mac. Just click on the big, green Download Memory button:
2.) If you didn't install Memory when creating your account, don't worry! You can still download Memory from a few places.
While in the Hours tab, you can click on the link from this blue banner:

Then make sure the green button in the bottom-right corner is switched 'On' to start capturing all of your work automatically.
