How to automate a FocusTime session
You can automatically start a FocusTime session by creating an alert. Alerts can be created by clicking the Tools icon and selecting Goals & Alerts from the menu. Make sure you click on the Alerts & Notifications tab at the top of the page.
To get started you'll need to add a few conditions so RescueTime knows exactly when to block distractions.
- Determine when you want the alert to trigger. It can be based on the time spent on a specific category, activity or a productivity score.
In the example above, the FocusTime session will start after one hour of distracting time Monday through Friday at any time between 6 AM and 8 PM. The session will last one hour.
