The Categories report shows the total time spent in activity categories. The report consists of a chart accompanied by a table. By default, the chart displays information about 15 most popular categories. When the mouse cursor is placed over a category, the program shows a popup window with detailed information about this category: active, idle and total time spent on it. The table lists all report activities sorted by active time.
By default, the system categorizes applications and websites using its own applications database, keywords found in webautocat.ini (for websites) and the website content database (if accessible by subscription). More information on this feature can be found in the Categories and Activities section.
When a category-specific context menu is opened in the table, you can easily block applications or sites of the selected category: add it to existing or create a new filtering rule.
Categories report has two tiers. In this report type, the second tier (Activity level) displays the applications launched and websites visited in the category. Activity level’s context menu can redirect you to the Detailed Application Windows or Detailed Websites report. This way, you can see what document was opened, what site URLs were visited and so forth. Activity level context menu also offers application and website filtering actions. You may easily block selected application or site, add it to existing or create a new filtering rule. More information on app\web filters can be found in the Website Filters and Application Filters sections.
The Categories report allows you to assess time distribution across categories and their contents (applications, websites). To view reports from different points of view, use additional filtering parameters described in the Report Controls section.
