Publish screenshots to server

To setup screenshots on the server, first go to Administration -> Screenshot settings. Enable screenshots and set the folder where they should be saved. If you have a lot of users, choose a drive with a lot of free disk space.

You can also choose to have the screenshots blurred. If you check this, screenshots will be blurred before ManicTime sends them to the server. The idea of blurred screenshot is that text is unreadable, but you still have a sense of what screenshot represents. 

Once you are done with the settings, you also have to configure the client to start sending screenshots to the server. On ManicTime client (v4.1 or later), go to Edit server, Publish tab and check Publish screenshots.
Configure ManicTime to send screenshots to the server
If you deploy ManicTime via active directory, then create a new deployment file in Administration -> Create deployment file and change it so that the clients will send screenshots.


You can view the screenshots on Personal -> Day view or on Reports -> Timelines. If you mouse over the timelines, screenshot will show up in the tooltip.

You can also do something with the screenshot files yourself, all the images are now on the server in the folder you specified. 

Disk usage

In Administration -> Diagnostics, you can see how much disk space is used by screenshots.
