"More than just tracking"

What do you like best?

The application tracking! THE BEST.

However, I enjoy the most are the month views (directly on the My Desktime). A super interesting calender-like view which wastes no time explaining an overview of your activities.

What do you dislike?

The pricing can be a bit much for anyone simply using the software for personal tracking. For normal remote workers, it's a bit of push and squeezes getting over the 3 USD a month.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try if you do a lot of remote work. Signing up for a trial is super easy and quick. And after the trial, If you feel that you need DeskTime, then well.. you need it :D

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To see how often I waste my time overall, and what are my most active hours.

"Great tracking app for remote workers with cool reporting tools"

What do you like best?

Ability to split the app and website into "productivity categories", and also able to have different configuration between each team group. The reporting dashboard is cool and a lot of metrics that can be exported too!

What do you dislike?

No ability to clear the completed / old tasks within a project. No ability to quickly switch between tracking time & private time on the tracking app like other competitors. The app usually hung up for a while 20-30s before I can use the app in the morning.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Should configure the productivity app & website periodically, so you will have the precise reporting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remote working report for each project. Calculate the project cost, and easy to share & export the details to our clients & stakeholders.

What Time Tracking solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"The only time tracker that works"

What do you like best?

Automated time tracking of sites and apps with configuration of productivity levels for each site/app that the employee is using.

The ranking of employees that helps motivating the team for being more productive.

What do you dislike?

It is very difficult to write 40 characters of what I dislike when I 100% like the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is the only time tracker that you won't need to tell your employees to complete, because it is automated.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Know if they are working on projects of the company.

- Know how much time they spend in each client, therefore the costs related to each client.

- Know exactly how much time they work each day: we don't have time of arrival or departure in the company, we measure work time.

- Know the apps they are using: for example if they are spending all the day writing emails.

- Internal motivation: the employees that are 1st each month earn a premium.

What do you like best?

DeskTime is really simple and seamless activity tracking app. You just do your job and it just work. You may set groups of productive, neutral and unproductive applications and then look at charts showing your productivity. It logs your start and end of work for a day, all the applications used, your out of desk time. Also it have a mobile applications to use it when you work out of office.

The main fail is that now you have to work hard to be productive. Just kidding.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use DeskTime for my personal needs. When i start use it I found that i'm not as productive as i could be. After that i started to use unproductive apps (like entertainment web sites) less and my effectiveness increased greatly!

"DeskTime helps us improve our individual productivity"

What do you like best?

Time tracking my workday with DeskTime helps me and my colleagues see our individual productivity, and decide what can be done to improve it. We see our most productive times of day, number of quality breaks per day and neutral or unproductive apps that distract us from the main tasks. All this helps a great deal to increase our team's overall efficiency and the number of assignments we manage to finalize.

What do you dislike?

We don't have any complaints about DeskTime so far.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

DeskTime helps us register the time spent on each project or assignment. This data can later be used to properly invoice the hours spent on each task or even present reports to our clients.
