Time tracking software NkTimeTracker uses two text files tt_user.ini and tt_common.ini.
All files are simple txt files ant you can edit files with notepad if needed
(please close NkTimeTracker at first).
The file tt_user.ini is located in users folder C:\ Users\ User\ AppData\ Local\ NkTimeTracker always. This file contais users settings of NkTimeTracker - windows positions, lasts activities codes, forced breaks options and others.
Additionaly this file contains the folder where is the second config file - tt_common.ini, (by default the folder is C:\ Users\ User\ AppData\ Local\ NkTimeTracker).
Path=C:\ Users\ User\ AppData\ Local\ NkTimeTracker.
In NkTimeTracker Pro you can keep the file tt_common.ini on shared resource in your network and differents users can use it. So all users will have the same common settings in this case.
Path = \\shared_pc\NKTT
The file tt_common.ini contains important settings - password, idle time, screenshots settings and others. In NkTimeTracker Pro this file can contains information about folders with dictionaries, events logs and screenshots:
DB.Path.Dictionaries = \\shared_pc\ NKTT\ Dictionaries
DB.Path.Events = \\shared_pc\ NKTT\ Events
DB.Path.Screenshots = \\shared_pc\ NKTT\ SS
They can also be a shared folders - in this case, users will have the same dictionaries, and event logs and screenshots will give a total statistics for all users and computers.
Most users can see only their own statistics (even on the public folders) and can not see screenshots at all.
