If you want to keep track of every other things that happens to you (apart from the things that TimeSnapper captures automatically) then Flags are your friend.

When you add a Flag it shows up in the Day Browser, it can be seen in Reports and (if you choose) in your Timesheet.

To edit the Flag, simply click on the small circular icon in the on the TimeBar in the Day Browser:

To add a flag at any time, click on the little TimeSnapper icon in the task tray... Ts-system-tray-active-inactive.png ...and choose 'New Flag'

A New Flag is a beautiful thing!

There are four types of flags....

  • a Task
  • a Note
  • a Break, or
  • End of day


What is the meaning of these four types of Flags?

A Task

a Task can have more fields defined

Auto Popup

You can make popping up the flags dialog totally automatic, what we call the "Auto Popup Note Taking Reminder" feature.

Automatically pop up 'New flag dialog'

  • every X [hours or minutes]
  • but only after X [minutes or seconds] of inactivity
  • every [day or weekday]
  • between [09:00] and [18:00]
  • showing dialog: [in front of every other dialog | minimized and flashing]


By setting the "inactivity" setting to e.g. 1 minute, you make sure that the dialog doesn't interrupt you while you are actively working at the computer. It would only pop up if it was time AND you hadn't touched the computer for 1 minute.
