Part of tracking your time is understanding when certain activities are getting out of control. Use this Zap to send an alert when you spent more than 20% of any given day emailing, chatting, or otherwise communicating.

How It Works

  1. RescueTime tracks your time and logs how much time you spend on email and other communication activities
  2. If your time spent on communication exceeds 20%, Zapier will send you an email report via Gmail to let you know

What You Need

  1. RescueTime installed and running
  2. A Gmail account
