Once you launch Memtime for the first time you will need to complete the following configuration process:

1. The first step is to give Memtime the needed permissions to be able to track your activities on your device. 

To do this you can click on the "Continue granting macOS permissions" button in the configuration screen:



Memtime needs Accessibility and Automation permissions

  • To grant Accessibility permissions go to "Privacy & Security" ➡️ "Accessibility":



  • To grant Automation permissions go to "Privacy & Security" ➡️ "Automation":



It may be necessary to restart your Memtime app before the permission changes take effect, so make sure to do so before checking to see if your activities are now being tracked.



To restart your Memtime app, simply right-click on the Memtime icon located in the upper right corner of your Menu bar. From the dropdown menu, select the option that says "Restart Memtime":



This will effectively restart your Memtime app and ensure that all the permission changes take effect. 


2. The next step is to configure the Language and Region for your Memtime.

  • You can determine the Date and Time format shown in the App.

  •  Select how you want to display time in the app. "h.m.s" or decimals 0.1h. 




3. The next step is to determine if you want your activities to be tracked in a 5 minute or 6 minute interval. 




  • The 5-minute interval will allow you to zoom the detailed view of activities in your timeline to 1 min, 5 min, 10 min, 15 min, 30 min and 1 hour. 

  • The 6-minute interval will allow you to zoom the detailed view of activities in your timeline to 1 min, 3 min, 6 min, 12 min, 18 min, 30in and 1 hour. 


You can find out more about how Memtime tracks activities here.


4. In the next step you can set up if you want to have a daily target of hours worked and set a reminder to create time entries. 





  • Enabling daily work hours will show you target hours in the main time tracking page of Memtime.

  • You can also set up notifications to remind you to create time entries based our your automatically captured activities. 


5. The next step is connecting your calendar. 


You can connect your calendar to be able to see your calendar entries in Memtime. The calendar entries together with the captured activities will give you a full picture on what you did in a given day. 

To connect the calendar just click on the "install" button next to your calendar like shown on the screenshot. You can also connect multiple calendars:




Additional calendars can be connected at any time later. 


6. The next step is to set up how you want to organize your projects.


There are 3 ways to use Memtime:

  • If you want to use Memtime just for captured activities, and you don't need to book time entries to a clients or projects you can click on "continue without project management".

  • The second option is to use Memtime Projects. This will allow you to create clients, project, matters and tasks in Memtime. To learn more about project creation click here.

  • The third option is to import your projects and tasks from a connected app.

    If you have connected your ERP Project management software with Memtime during your Account Creation you will be able to import all of your projects and clients from your software. If you have skipped that step in the account creation you can click on "find more connected apps" during this configuration step.

Congratulations! You have finished setting up Memtime on your device. After completion, you will be greeted by a small tutorial in the Memtime app.
