Great to feel protected..

Neither of these cons should make you think any less... This is a fantastic product. We almost never need to look at it however for us its their to review something that has happened on a workstation. A handful of times this software has made troubleshooting issues with employee usage policy and can save your company from legal headaches!

Pros

It's depth of auditing is fantastic. From logging files copied to a flash drive from specific network locations to its logging of usage to review when an issue presents itself.. It really is a great product!

Cons

A few versions ago you were able to review directly from the software. We found this easier and faster but have come to find the web interface does indeed have its advantages. One other minor thing, the web interface at the moment always opens to ALL history which can take a few moments to open. Would be better for us atleast if we could set it to only show the week or month..

Reasons for Choosing SoftActivity Monitor

Because it does what it says it does....

Thank you for your kind review! In the latest versions, if you select the Last week or Last month in the reports, it should remember this choice. If it does not work for you, our support can help with that.

Used the software for several years, while it usually performs pretty well, there are some issues.

Pros

Pro is being able to turn on/off the monitoring notification. Sending notifications/popups to users. Having both the screen view as well as keystrokes views are incredibly helpful.

Cons

Users frequently disconnect, and the only solution is to uninstall and reinstall the AmAgent software. Makes it difficult to monitor long term, and interrupts both my day and the users by having to do the reinstall. If you're looking at the keystrokes view while a user is actively typing, the screen will continue to jump down to the bottom of the page as the keystrokes are updated. Makes it incredibly difficult to go through the history during the day or if someone is actively working at their station. Often with major software updates, we have to uninstall and reinstall the AmAgent software on all machines. Difficult to maintain connectivity with multiple admins running the monitor at the same time. Some admins will show staff connected, while same staff shows as disconnected on another admin's monitor. Anytime I have had to interact with customer support it has been a primarily canned response, and I had to push to escalate to get anyone on the phone with our IT person.

This product is very useful tool for our company.

This software is very easy to use, working smoothly, and the important thing is we monitored each and every activity of our employees. But few things need to add more . 1.if we check any old activity and snapshoots so there's only dates options available ,it takes a lot of time to search .if the time option is added like if i found 1/1/2019 and time is 2:00 pm so the only 2:pm activity will show on the screen it will be easy and perfect to see old activities..

Pros

The software is very easy to install and use.

Cons

Please add time option, search by the date and time too. Please do make some videos on all settings so its more easy to watch and implement..

Reasons for Choosing SoftActivity Monitor

The best option is Web Console , its very easy to watch the activity through browser. Easy to understand and installation... The customer support team is very helpful and perfect to understanding a problem and give us a proper solution..

Shan, Thank you for the review. I'm glad our software is helpful for your business. You can actually already filter snapshots and logs by time in the latest version 12.0. Just select time next to the day in the top area

Easy software to use

We have been able to catch staff using their energy in other ways other than focusing on work. I have also used it recapture information we thought we lost and found it on a screenshot, this has saved us more than once.

Pros

The view history as a video is a great tool. Being able to see what is going on live and to be able to customize how often a screenshot is saved.

Cons

It does not allow for running reports. Also looking at a web address I cannot always tell if it is personal or business and have to revert to looking at each individual screenshot. I have demoed other software and although this one is easier to navigate others gave report options.
