Permission to accessibility features allows Clearminute's macOS app to observe specific events relevant to detecting switch in focus between different applications.
It is recommended to grant that permission in order to obtain precise time reports on application usage.
In case no permission is provided, the app will still attempt to work by actively polling the currently active application - unfortunately this polling strategy will consume more computing resources and the reports will be less accurate.
Go to System preferences... -> Security & Privacy -> Select "Privacy" tab -> Select "Accessibility" from list -> Check the box for ClearMinute.app
If you are using Google Chrome for browsing online, you'll be asked to grant permissions for controlling the browser. This is required in order to be able to determine the websites you're spending time on. In focus mode, it'll also assist you to stay focused by automatically redirecting you away from distracting websites.
Go to System preferences... -> Security & Privacy -> Select "Privacy" tab -> Select "Automation" from list -> Under ClearMinute.app, check the box for Google Chrome
If you launch the app before moving it to /Applications folder, you'll be asked if you'd like to automatically move it there. For this operation, Finder permissions are required.
In case you do not wish to grant those permissions, please quit the application, manually move it to the /Applications folder and then launch again.
