If you like these additional features you’ll have the chance to upgrade to a premium plan on Tues, June 30.
URL tracking brings a new level of data to your business so you can understand how your team works on specific projects and measure the performance of team members against each other.
Summary URL View:
You can start by seeing the summary URL data of a team member. On the summary page, you’ll see a summary of the URLs visited ordered by the time spent at each URL. The graphs make it easy to quickly see which the most popular URLs are for that specific worker:
For this team member, I can see quickly that they are using Gmail, Hubstaff, Mailchimp and Trello.
But now, if I want to understand more about any of these particular URL’s to see exactly what was happening, I can go to the detailed tab.
Click the “Detailed” tab to see a full breakdown of each page visited. Click a URL to expand it and reveal every page visited at that domain as well as the exact amount of time spent there.
I can see here, that this team member was in our Hubstaff Intercom account answering support tickets and speaking with customers.
Or in this example, I can see the exact Trello cards being worked on and the time spent on each.
You can even click a page URL to get a quick preview of the site or open the URL in your browser.
