Useful if you are remote working

PROS

Desktime is very useful in our line of work(remote-employees). It helps track of times that makes billing automated without having to submit a timesheet and such. The ability to schedule leaves are very useful as well. I also like how you can take screenshots that are blurred to maintain privacy.

CONS

The log in and out process is a bit of hassle. You can’t just keep the software logged in at all times and then just flick a button to get it started. Of course you can do private time, but that is not very intuitive.

Finding the secret "time thieves" with DeskTime

Wasting time on unproductive tasks was tremendously reduced as DeskTime assisted me with identifying which tasks don't make me money but just steal time

PROS

DeskTime helps me enormously to find hidden time thieves in my everyday life, which was previously much less productive due to much more multitasking and constantly switching between tasks. By using DeskTime to visually record which unproductive tasks/distractions I deal with on a daily basis, I've been able to proactively address them and have regained a lot of productive work time as a result.

CONS

The visual approach primarily aims to present information in a pragmatic way, but could use a more contemporary touch.

Reasons for switching to DeskTime

The tracking of how much time I spend in different files and browser tabs felt more precise for me in DeskTime.

Let's wrap it up a little more nicely

It's a fairly accurate measurement and shows my time and project productivity during busy work. Users can check their productivity while working on various projects without having to make a separate selection.

PROS

No special setup is required. That's it. It provides some additional features, but it is a cost that is reluctant to incur additional costs. Even now, it seems expensive for its features. Among the exercise apps, STRAVA makes an effort to communicate with various data and customers. Change the design you want to buy with more beautiful and effective data and features. Arouse curiosity.

CONS

I want you to think about UI design and color selection for the same programs. Green has a lot of nice coverage too. Otherwise, the current green color may decrease the value of Desktime. The overall homepage interface and S/W UI need to be improved. I want it to look plausible when I introduce it to others. The charts are also not that professional. Today's productivity week, month can be selected, but the data that accumulates Don't have an idea to show your users effectively?

"Desktime the tool of the future"

We are reducing economic and time costs, being able to do the time registration online and automatically when turning on the computer, control of vacation periods, permits and sick leave, among others.

PROS

we like the autonomy of the system, when it comes to starting the computer, desktime is able to start working automatically.In addition, the "private time" option is very useful, so that workers can freely review personal matters during break hours, without worrying about being "monitored".

CONS

At first, there was resistance to the implementation of desktime by the workers, most of them complained about the alleged "invasion of their privacy", this was motivated by the screenshots made by the software.However, the company also chooses to keep the screenshots active, in order to supervise the work.

Reason for choosing DeskTime

Mainly because of their online reviews, but also because when contacting the company requesting information, the response was quick and the pitch convincing.

Amazing, Best Software !

So we are able to get the detailed report of each employee and monitor and measure their performance and productivity.

PROS

So, it’s been almost two years having “Desktime” monitoring/tracking us, and we found it is very impressive and easy solution. The kind of reports and support they provides; we don’t think any contenders would be offering in this arena currently. We are just planning to offer this product with our all international clients as well. Thanks "Desktime"

CONS

So, We received a concern from the users that sometimes its get unresponsive and than need to restart the software.

Reasons for switching to DeskTime

There were many issues and wasn't simple as Desktime
