Timetracker 4.0 | Windows Client and Web Client Settings
When you expand the "Time Tracking" section within the "Configuration" tab, you can configure options for Timetracker 4's Windows Client and Web Client. "Time Tracker System Settings" are admin-only settings that are system-wide and are grayed out if a user doesn't have permissions to them. "Time Tracking Personal Settings" are for regular users of Timetracker.
Note: If your administrator has not checked "Enable email notifications" under "Time Tracking System Settings", this will be grayed out under "Time Tracking Personal Settings".
This is what you will see when you expand the "Time Tracking" section:

|Enable activity check on time tracking||
With this option enabled, you can set the amount of time, in minutes, that passes before the Timetracker clients check for user activity, such as if you are still working on a current work item. You can also set the amount of time, in seconds, to display the resulting activity check prompt from whatever client(s) you are using.
|Max single track length||Here, you can set a number, in hours, at which your clients will stop tracking once this number has been exceeded. For example, if you set the maximum track length to "1" (hour), and you are tracking time on a work item, your tracker will automatically stop once the one-hour mark has been exceeded.|
|Tracking details are required||
With this selection enabled, the system will ask the users to enter a comment (see screen shot, below) before tracking will commence on the work item form.
|Enable email notifications||
If the user does not respond, when prompted, to the above settings, the system will stop tracking automatically.
With "Enable email notifications" checked, the user will receive an email notification to when tracking was stopped by the system due to no response from the user during those prompts.
*Important: Please note that in on-premise Timetracker for TFS, this setting does not display here, but in the config tool.
|Apply||Saves your settings.|
