Under Settings -> General -> "Time Tracking", you can configure options for 7pace Timetracker 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 disabled under "Time Tracking Personal Settings".
This is what you will see when you expand the "Time Tracking" section:

How to set tracking limits
Time Tracking System Settings
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.
How to enable automated activity checks when time tracking
Time Tracking Personal Settings
Enable activity check on time tracking
With this option enabled, the system will check in with you during time tracking to see if you are still tracking.
How to set how often activity check reminders display
You can set the amount of time, in minutes, that passes before the 7pace Timetracker system checks for user activity, such as if you are still working on a current work item.
Standard Interval: Enter the number of minutes that you want to pass before the Timetracker clients display a user prompt to check on user activity.
How to set length of time in seconds that the activity check reminder displays
You can also set the amount of time, in seconds, to display the resulting activity check prompt from whatever client(s) you are using.
Waiting Time: Enter the number of seconds you want to keep the Timetracker clients' activity user prompt message displayed, waiting for action from you or your team members. If the user doesn't confirm his/her activity within the defined time (by either continuing or stopping time tracking), tracking will stop due to "no response from user during activity check".
