Even on the slowest of work days, it can be ridiculously difficult to recall everything you worked on and when. Enter Memory: the app which automatically remembers everything you work on so you don't have to! 🧠
Each web and desktop activity you take is captured as a "memory". When it comes to reviewing them, different people like different approaches. Some users like review their daily memories chronologically, knowing they just have to jump to 11AM to find that marketing call. For the list-lovers among us, others prefer to see their memories in a structured and easily actionable list. Luckily, whatever mood you're in, you can switch between both. 🍀
Just head to Memory Inbox ー you'll find both a Timeline and List view! Pick your preferred format and blast through logging those memories to your timesheet. 🚀
Memory's Timeline view lays out your memories in chronological order, pinning them to the time they occurred during the day. It allows you to review simultaneous tasks (like presenting a document or answering an email in a meeting) or ー if you have Timely's location tracker enabled ー when you were in a certain place. As such, you get a fuller account of what you do each day and can ensure all project work gets logged! 👍
There's a lot of information in there, so you can zoom in or out of your Timeline view to adjust the level of detail. If you only have a handful of memories each day, we recommend zooming out ー it makes for much quicker logging. Conversely, if you have a lot of memories, zoom in (especially useful for work requiring you to use a ton of different tools simultaneously). 🔎
While Memory can actually draft time entries for you, you can create entries manually. Just click on the left-hand side of your Timeline and drag along your timestamps. Select a project for that entry and that space on the timeline will become color-coded to match the project.
Note: This action won't include memories in your new entry, but you can link them later when adding details such as entry description and tags.
If you'd prefer to look at a systematic list and log memories one by one, we've got you covered. The List view uses the same space as the Timeline view, but provides more detail for each individual memory. If you've been logging time using your memories, Memory AI will organize the List view for you ー prioritizing it so that memories you are most likely to log appear at the top.
Individual memories are be grouped together by name. Say you've been working on the same design file in Sketch throughout the course of the day: you'll see the total individual memories associated with it under a common title in your list. You can click on the triangle next to the total time for that memory to expand your view and see all these memories individually.
No matter what view you prefer, you can always switch back and forth between the Timeline or List view in order to get the most out of your experience with Memory!
