Customizable Features

Customize your organization to adjust how Hubstaff’s software monitors your team. Here are a few things you can modify while tracking time to Freshdesk tickets.

  • Give your team the option of adding manual time. This is useful if they have tasks that need to be done away from their computers. Team members can add notes to these time entries detailing what they worked on during that time.
  • How much of their work you see. Adjust the screenshot frequency to 1, 2 or 3 shots every 10 minutes. You can decide whether you want to see exactly what they are working on, or turn the feature off and Hubstaff won’t collect any screenshots at all.
  • Whether team members can modify their own time. You can decide whether to allow your employees and contractors to add or delete their own time manually, including screenshots.

Innovative Productivity Monitoring

By using Hubstaff to track time, you will be able to see how productive your team is with activity reports and employee screenshots. Activity levels are based on key strokes and mouse movement to predict work and efficiency, while screenshots are taken at random intervals every 10 minutes.

These employee monitoring tools can be used to:

  • Discover your most productive employees and contractors.
  • Find out how your team works and see who works best at which times.
  • Ensure your team is working on the right tasks.
  • Eliminate the need for excessive email check-ins to see what was done that day.
  • View randomized screenshots to see exactly what your team is working on.
  • Use activity reports for employee feedback; praise their productivity or find out why they have been less active than usual.
