Sessions 101


What is a Session?


A Session is a group of your applications, windows and browser tabs that you need for any activity on your computer. A Session allows you store your workflows for later use so your work is only a click away.

Read our blog post to learn how Sessions help maximize your productivity.


What would I create a Session for?


You should create a Session for any activity on your computer that you will need to return to later whether it be daily, weekly or just once in a while. Saving your work to Sessions ensures that you will always find what you need, when you need it.

 

Some examples of Sessions you could create are:


  • "Monthly Reporting":Every month you may need to pull the same report for your manager. Why not put your Excel sheets, chrome tabs, and whatever you need into one place to return to each month?
  • Email & Calendar: Separate your communication channels to maintain your focus while working on important tasks.
  • Client or Project Sessions:Manage multiple clients or projects? Save each client’s notes and project documents to their own Session to switch between seamlessly.
  • Internal Meetings: Have one place to store everything that is discussed in your company meetings including your notes and any materials that were shared.
  • Vacation Plans:Create Sessions for your personal life too! Don’t let those browser tabs with your vacation plans get lost in your work.
  • Personal Finances:Have multiple bank accounts? Keep tabs for each of them stored in a Session to get a quick view on your finances.
  • Blogs / Articles to read: Instead of having random tabs open you may read or look at “some day”, store them in a rainy-day Session so you know they are there when you have time for them.

How do I create a new Session?

 

Option 1: Create a Session using the Wolf Menu. Click here to watch a tutorial.

 
  • Step 1: Click "+ Create new Session" 
  • Step 2: Type in the "Session Name" >
  • Step 3: Choose a Session color or add to Favorites if you would like
  • Step 4: Select Applications by clicking on the Applications on the right side of the screen. (You can also browse applications on your computer using the link). If you do not know all of the Applications you will need in that Session, just simply select one Application to start with (you cannot create a new Session with no applications).
  • Step 5: Click "Create" to stay in the Wolf Menu, or "Create and Start" to navigate to the new Session.
  • Step 6: Once in the new Session, you can save new Applications as you go by using the sidebar and click on the save icon in the Active Session.

  • Step 3: When completed with your work in that Session, click on the "save" or "x" icons in the active session you are currently in. This will prompt you to name and save the Session so you can return to it later.

How do I edit a Session?


To edit an active Session simply modify the applications or files while in the Session. To rename the Session, close the Session and follow the directions below.

To edit an inactive or closed Session, go to the Wolf Menu > Recent Sessions > click on the pencil icon to edit. From here you can rename the Session, change which resources are saved, or edit the Session color.

 

What is the "Home" Session?


Your home Session is where you can do simple tasks that you do not wish to save. Nothing in the home Session will be saved. (For example, use the home Session to access Facebook or to read articles that you won't need to return to later). You can access the home Session by clicking on the "home" icon in the sidebar. Currently, you are not able to save Sessions when working in the Home session.

 

How do I add a Session to "Favorite Sessions"?


Go to the Wolf Menu > My Sessions > locate the Session you want to make a favorite and click on the star icon.


Can I have certain Sessions automatically open when I turn on my computer?


Yes. In the Wolf menu go to Settings > Application Launch > Check "Start Wolf Flow automatically after login to Windows". From here you can turn on the different Sessions you want to have automatically start.

Using Applications with Wolf Flow


When opening some applications it brings me to a new Session. Why is this happening?


Some applications are built differently allowing for only one instance of it to be open at a time (Slack, Skype, Mail, etc.) We are currently working on a solution to allow for more user control. For now to allow this application to be available in multiple environments please follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Open up the application (ie Slack).
  • Step 2: Click on "Task View" on the start bar or press Win+Tab.
  • Step 3: Locate the application on the screen.
  • Step 4: Right click on the app > click "Show windows from this app on all desktops".
A tutorial can be found here.

Can I have one file open in two different Sessions?


The short answer is no. However, you can save a file (i.e. Word file, Excel file, etc.) to multiple Sessions, you just cannot have those different Sessions open at the same time. (The computer’s operating system does not allow us to have multiple instances open of the same file). If there is one file that you need across all (or most) of your Sessions, follow this tutorial or follow the above instructions.


How can I move a window to another Session?

  • Step 1: Open up the application (ie Slack).
  • Step 2: Click on "Task View" on the start bar or press Win+Tab.
  • Step 3: Locate the application on the screen.
  • Step 4: Right click on the app > click "Show windows from this app on all desktops".
A tutorial can be found here.

When clicking on a hyperlink to a web page, why is it moving me to a different Session?


At this time, clicking on a hyperlink (ie. to an article that was emailed to you) will pull the link open in the last browser you previously had open. Therefore, if the last browser was open in your previous Session, it will bring you to that Session. We recommend first opening up a browser in the Session you are in before clicking on a hyperlink. Or you can use Task View following the steps above to move a window from one Session to another.
