How to Get Run Time of Macros?


I am simply interested in getting the run time of some macros, is it possible?

Best Regards

I don’t know of any built-in way to do this. When I’ve needed to do it I’ve just added a variable at the start that saves the start time, then had another one that saves the time at the very end, and the last action is a notification or ’show in window’ that does something like:

Start: 13:08:31
End: 13:09:57

Perhaps some others will have better ideas. If not, or if this is sufficient but you need help setting it up, let me know.

Hi @JensBay,

Use this macro:

Yes. You just need two Actions.

Actions to Time Actions in Macro

Keyboard Maestro Actions.kmactions (2.1 KB)
NOTE: This is a set of ACTIONS
Before you import this, select the Action in your Macro where you want these actions to go.
