Control Panel - Health Section (macOS)

When using a ProPoint, PenPoint or ErgoPoint with the Swiftpoint Control Panel on macOS you will have access to the Health section. This includes three activity tracking timers to help ensure you are taking enough breaks throughout the day.

Rest Timers



There are two rest timers available, Micro Break, and Stretch Break, along with a Daily Limit timer. The break timers have default values for how much rest you should take over certain time-frame. But both the amount of rest and the time-frame can be customized.

For example the Micro-Rest timer's default setup reminds you to take at least 30 seconds of rest every 10 minutes. It does this by monitoring your activity over each 10 minute interval; if less than 1 minute of inactivity was recorded it will prompt you to take a short break. So if you only paused for 20 seconds over a 10 minute period, it would prompt you to give your hands a 10 second break. But if you had already paused for 30 seconds or more it would not prompt you to take a further break yet.

The rest prompt will appear in the corner of your screen, and will automatically disappear once its time is up, or you can click on the 'x' to dismiss it.


Daily Limit

Unlike the other rest timers Daily Limit works over the fixed time-frame of a single day. So it lets you set a cap on the total amount of activity per day. This cap will not prevent you from continuing with your work, but will just let you know once you have reached the limit you set. Like the rest timers the daily limit is based on active usage time. So for example, with the default settings it would take a minimum of almost 6 hours to reach the default 5 hour limit if you took the prescribed breaks. 



Each of the three timer can be disabled separately with the blue checkbox next to their name if you prefer not to use any of them.
