Pros: Time tracking without thinking.

Cons: I really wish it would track minutes in unites of 100, like time has to be submitted for payroll. The hour time is not a factor but the minutes, it is always 38 min x .60 to get time to submit. Or if not doing the actual math, it is looking it up on a conversion chart. Just give me an option to track it how I need it to.

Overall: There are things I am good at, but keeping track of my time is not one. I had searched for a few years trying different programs, or plug-ins, or techniques and I always ended up with "time holes" in my day. And then I found Desktime. It starts when my computer comes up and starts tracking automatically. I use Chrome and have the extension for Desktime that captures the URLs of sites I visit so I can also keep track of what I was working on by where I was on the Internet. And then there is the Project's feature. It is super simple to set up a new project, and as easy as choosing from a dropdown list when you need to switch from one project to another for individual job tracking. In the course of a day I rarely work on one thing and then the next and so on. It is more of a series of hopping from one job to another and back again and the ease of switching between projects makes that a non-issue. And because no person is perfect Desktime also has a Private Time feature. There is also the ability to keep up with how long meetings are or lunch even because Desktime tracks offline time. When your computer is idle for more than a few minutes Desktime stops counting time. When you come back, in the timeline there is a gap to which you can assign whatever may be appropriate. If it was a production meeting, click in the blank space and a pop-up comes up and you can tell it what you were doing, what project it was for, if applicable and even if the time was productive or not. I suppose depending on the meeting that could be subjective. And if you were out to lunch, leave it blank and no time is recorded so that at the end of the day you have an accurate record of how much "desktime" you have put in. It is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Recommendations to other buyers: You guys use to allow for the nature of a website to be changes in daily/weekly/monthly views by clicking on it and changing whether it was productive, unproductive or neutral. It is a bit trickier now.

I use Desktime everyday!

Pros: Some features such as project controls, site controls, groups, etc.

Cons: The price and app stability I guess

Overall: We're a small web design and development company here in Taiwan with about 10-15 person.

We use Desktime on our daily work to track the productivity of our colleagues, though it is not used as a key for employee's evaluation, but it is definitely a tool to help our company boost their attention, which also comes with a good healthy competition, and we will award the best employee of the month thru it.

There's a lot of Desktime we like which we don't usually see on other apps, those includes some automatic detection of the website if they're productive or not, we can also add projects for special tracking, we can also limit the users from their IPs incase they're abusing it at home, lol.

I think Desktime is actually lack of some marketing, it is a worthy competition to Rescue Time, you should give it a try! ;)

Recommendations to other buyers: Can you please offer unlimited users with a fixed monthly plan? Because this app is not really like super super super important for every company to consider, but if the price makes it easier for company to afford, specially to those new startups or companies, I think they will consider it.

Pros: -Great reporting for activities

-Administrative rights are defined correctly

Cons: -Lacking significant alerts

-Private time can't be mapped to specific periods within the day

-Full-screen applications override private-time notifications

Overall: A great service that allows tracking and reporting on computer use - its scalability, ease of installation and general ease of use allow it work very well for my organization and for many others, I assume.

That said, there are several features that were available previously that are no longer baseline. It is important for DeskTime to determine exactly in which direction they want to push their features and their tracking, as the inability to track activity in one way, may avoid a need for DeskTime altogether.

Specifically, allowing the reporting to break down a users' actions within a given hour has disappeared from the transition of Desktime to New Desktime and this feature specifically allows us to gather insights.

All-in-all, Desktime is a very powerful tool for management and for reporting and team performance assessment, yet could take an extra step in defining some key features. More desktop alerts, stronger hour-reporting, and offline time mapping would all help in making Desktime the ultimate tool for time management.

Light and simple, does what it has to do.

Pros: We're running a distributed organization and have been using DeskTime since they were a small startup. It works perfectly on desktop/laptop machines (duh!) but we haven't tried using it on mobile devices (since we only use it for tracking office crew hours).

Cons: "Time at work" stat is a little bit confusing and is meant for linear days (e.g. if you log in for 15 mins at midnight, just to check your email, it will think that it's the start of a working day, and when you log in back in the morning, the time at work will be 8 hrs, so we learnt to ignore this stat completely.

Overall: This software is an essential part of our performance evaluation mechanism, allowing users to track their time, and classify it based on the tasks they are working on.

Pros: Cross-platform compatibility (MacOS-X, Windows, iOS, Android), Simplicity, Beautiful design, simple application assignment

Cons: I'd love to drill into details about a certain time period, productivity status etc. For example, if I have a block of an unproductive period, I'd like to be able to click on it in a report to see where have I spent the unproductive time (or productive, or neutral).

Overall: I use it personally to monitor my time spent and to analyze my productivity. Where is my time going? What applications am I using, how much time I'm spending on different tasks or projects?

I love that I can also log off-line time on the computer or mobile phone.

This tool is even better when used for a team monitoring. I can see how many hours every employee spends in certain apps, projects or tasks. I can see when they start and end their workday, and I see their productivity ratio.

Pros: I love the insights into how my time is distributed across applications and websites. I definitely use it passively, but occasionally I check in to see how my time breaks down. I just let it run in the background and check the dashboards for fun. Once upon a time, I pitched it to the leadership at an organization where I worked, but it was early in the product's maturity so that didn't pan out. I'm a longtime fan and I'm pleased with how the feature set has evolved.

Cons: I believe the pricing structure is misaligned with customer segments. This is more relevant to corporations than to individuals. It's a nice to have for me, but I can live without it if I must pay. This would fall into the category of something that should be extended to workers for free, but at a cost to organizations with two or more users. Extend more features to single license accounts.

Overall: Mostly positive.

Pros: it make it simple and fun your time tracking both for job related or for spare time activities.

Cons: -

Overall: I've been using desktime for years for the managament of time spent in front of a pc.

It's possible to track any activity you perform on pc in terms of time spent.

This is useful to categorize where your time is addressed over the weeks and months, and highlighting where some time is wasted in unproductive activities.

Very nice the chance to create projects, where you can select particular activities.

Also the time on the internet is tracked, making it possible to judge your web navigation in productive or unproductive.

Pros: Desktime really assists with ensuring time entries are accurate and detailed. The screenshot feature allows me to calture specifically what I was working on at any given time during days that are too busy to stop and enter time. The graph that shows what applications you were in, and active/idle time makes it easy to enter breaks for those days as well.

Cons: I'd only request that the applications you are in show the title of the document you were working in on the graph.

Overall: Time entry accuracy is 100% using desktime. Working for an MSP as an engineer makes for fast-paced days. It's hard to stay 100% up-to-date on time entry as a result. Having desktime to track your time and allow you to review screenshots of your day make it easy to go back and enter time for days that became too hectic to update tinesheets.

Pros: Well, I use this app mostly for project duration monitoring which works great. Also, the productivity and efficiency calculators are pretty amazing

Cons: It would be great to have some detailed reports on projects. For example, see a list of projects where you can select a project and see more details about it. I know there is something similar, but works only on maximum monthly.

Overall: I've been using Desktime for over a year and I'm very pleased with how everything worked out so far. After trying several project monitoring solutions I think it is safe to say that this is one of the best

Recommendations to other buyers: All time for projects I think would be useful for me.

Pros: Looks great. Many good features

Cons: Not tailored enough for freelance work

Overall: I'm using DeskTime as a logger for my freelance work and refers to the data collected when sending invoices. The new addition of tasks are great and gives me a better organized workflow.

One thing I'm missing is the ability to select one task and see the total amount of time spent on the task, regardless of what month or day. Just like a task-summary. For me the "projects" are customer and "task" are projects for that customer. Overall I'm very satisfied with DeskTime and wouldn't mind paying a few bucks if the program could be a little more tailored for freelance work.

Recommendations to other buyers: I want to see total time spent on individual tasks, regardless of month/day

Pros: My favorite feature was the productivity tracker. As part of my job, I'm constantly getting interrupted or distracted throughout the day. Using the productivity tracker allowed me to see what time during the day I was able to be most productive an allowed me to schedule important tasks during those times.

Cons: There were a few things that felt a little intrusive. I see the necessity for them in other companies, but for our own, we didn't like the idea of being able to take screenshots of our agents computer screens or track all of their web activity.

Overall: I really enjoyed DeskTime for personal use. Sadly, a few of our team members tested out the software and we found that it just wasn't what we were looking for as a company.

To be clear, we did not end up choosing a competing software. Instead, we decided that it wasn't in the best interests of our team to constantly track minute-by-minute productivity.

Pros: Ability to capture gaps in time

Cons: I wish i could see a more detailed analysis, instead of total time on each program, I wish it would show: From 11:49am - 12:00pm you were on capterra website. From 12:00pm-1:30pm you had "Word document Name" open.

Overall: I am a defense attorney who bills my time for a living. Desktime is a great supplement to my billing software and works really well to fill any gaps. i'm hoping for some additional functionality in supplemental releases, such as the ability to comment on things that I'm doing live, but for the most part, this app is great!

Recommendations to other buyers: This has the potentially to be really powerful software that lawfirms, and other billable environments would greatly benefit from. I'd be more than willing to have a discussion with you about how to make the product more functional and/or effectively market to my industry.

Overall: I have never used any time trackers before DeskTime and never thought about personal productivity. I just was doing my job well and everything was ok. After installing Desktime I was wondered that I'm not so productive as I was thinking! I found that I work hard and do the job but waste time for things like messengers and social networks, for couple (or three or five) coffee breaks and so on. Desktime showed me that and I changed my work style. Now I do the same amount of work in 5-6 hours instead of 8 hrs. I don't do more but I do it faster now. Thank you, DeskTime!

Pros: the widgets with your productivity details and the section where you can check which app you use the most

Cons: the projects part is a bit hidden, and I'm not using it at all I think it should be exhibited in another way. Also for a social media manager, most of social media app are productive tools for him/her, while it shouldn't be for other members of the team. We should be able to set an app productive/unproductive for a particular person and not by group.

Overall: Desktime is not only good to actually know what your colleagues are doing, but also to measure your own productivity. I like to check out how much I spent on software and tasks to estimate the time needed for future projects

Recommendations to other buyers: Use it!

Cons: it would be awesome if you could break down even more specifically which file you were working on on seeveral programs, and not just the program as a whole, so i have to use another app to track that, for example if i use photoshop all day i would like to know how much time i spent on each file, so i have to track this ¨manualy¨ with another app.

Pros: Easy to use. Doesn't take much effort to have it give you good feedback.

Cons: Bugs, iOS app does not work, slow getting simple features into the product.

Overall: We really like the idea behind DeskTime. There are little things that could make this product fantastic. In the month view calendar, clicking on a day should take you to that day. We have been on DeskTime since last October and the report export does not export the data as the correct data type. This makes the export useless unless we spend time editing each cell to get the right data type in. It would be very helpful to us if we could distinguish between time in the office and time outside the office so we know if people work at home but we also want to track what time they get in the office and what time they leave the office. Making the IP restriction more robust could solve this. There are other little things but we will work through support.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep working hard to get the things done that would make it better. Fix exports and some of the annoying bugs.

Pros: If you need to specify what time you're spending on particular projects or account, this is great software. It also helps you see if you are as productive in general on your computer time as you think you are.

Cons: Did not like that the times were listed in military format. I was always converting the time back-and-forth and that was bothersome to me.

Overall: Was easy to use and easy to set up, the more I used it the more I understood how best to categorize and track my time.

Must have features and simple setup. Must try.

Pros: I like how quickly I can set up and start using this time and project tracking software. The dashboard is minimalistic and has enough information. Productivity bar gives a nice chart for a quick view.

Private time is a nice touch when I have to check social media for my personal use or take a break. Project wise time is a nice feature to have.

The break interval rings me after every 30 min of usage for more productivity and a little rest from my work.

Cons: I couldn't see the projects I created into my web dashboard.

Free plans for 1 user, that's not good for any startup company. As you can't use with your team it is not possible to get the c

Can't use screenshot and third-party integration as it just has two calendars available.

Overall: I must say for only one user it is really good.

Pros: The report functions

Cons: It is not as customizable as we wished it were. We would also like the options of accepting the upgrades. One size does not fit all.

Overall: We have not had a positive experience with the upgrade and wished that we could have the functionality back from before. Other than that complaint, all else runs sufficiently.

Pros: It helps a company who is mostly work at home employees keep up with who is doing what. Let's us see if one person is doing more than another. Keeps everyone honest.

Cons: There isn't really anything, the set up is a little odd at first but once you do the first few it becomes very easy.

Overall: It's been easy to use and incorporate into our company. We don't have to check it often but it's good to know that it's there if we need it to fall back on.

Overall: I had been using DeskTime for a couple of years already. Even that I use it for personal goals - I love it: how it shows your productive time and the other time spent on not so important things. I can track my time easily and see where are my sins. I wasn't using it as a company tool, but I see the pros having this tool in the whole team. Works even better in Agile environments. Appreciate your work, guys! Great tool!

Pros: I don't think that we are using this as intended, but it has been great to track how the time of our salary employees is being spent. We are then able to take that information and determine what tasks each person should be doing.

Pros: Easy time tracking feature with no/little room for human errors.

Cons: Sometimes gets unresponsive and need to restart the software

Overall: We found desktime to be very easy and a perfect solution for tracking our overall performance. It was very easy to figure out the time spent in different applications required during our everyday use. We were able to track efficiency and even the most effective hours during operations. We were also able to track work of our employees when they were working from home and also tally everyone's performance in contrast to everyone else's. Also, different departments and their work efficiency was made easier to track with the help of desktime. Loved the app, thank you for creating it. :)
