You can do so much more with RescueTime by connecting it to the other apps you use to automate the tedious tasks in your workflow.
Let Zapier do the work for you.
RescueTime helps you understand how you spend your time on the computer by automatically keeping a log of the time you spend on different applications and websites. Having an accurate idea of how you time is spent makes it easy to stay productive and balanced.
Zapier gives you the power to integrate RescueTime with hundreds of other apps to automate your work.
I log my time use on my iPad (which does not have a RescueTime app), which shows up on Google Calendar. If this zap works, it can be used to get those otherwise untracked times (and my other Google Calendar events that I am not on my computer) to show up in Rescuetime.
It's important for me to have a record of the meetings on my calendar when I go back to review how I've been spending my time. This zap lets me log meetings as daily highlights in RescueTime so I have all my time information in a single place.

A Zap is a connection between two apps that automates time-consuming tasks.
Triggers and actions are simply events. They can be things like a "new email" or a "new contact". A Zap combines triggers and actions — whenever the trigger event occurs, Zapier automatically completes the action for you!
Don't see a web app you need? We're constantly adding new ones to Zapier based on customer requests.
Add an app to Zapier yourself! Our developer platform lets you create triggers and actions people can use to automate and integrate your app with hundreds of others.
