Time Doctor increases overall productivity by monitoring computer usage in five major ways.

Please remember that the Time Doctor 2 Interactive app DOES NOT monitor anything on your computer when you are not tracking your time. It will only track your activity when you select a task and track time for it. The Silent app monitors all the activity from the moment you log into your operating system.

  1. Task Tracking
    Tracks the total time spent on different tasks while allowing you to easily specify break time.
  2. Keyboard and Mouse Activity
    Checks for idle time when the keyboard and mouse are not being used.  The actual keys pressed are not recorded.
  3. Screenshots (Optional)
    Takes intermittent screenshots of your computer screen(s).
  4. Video recording (Optional)
    Records 3 min videos of your screen(s).
  5. Websites and Applications used
    Tracks and reports the time spent on different websites and in different applications to help your ensure a good use of your time.

You can see all data about your own work that your admins & managers are able to see.

Task Tracking

Admins can create a list of work tasks from their Time Doctor 2 web account. Users then choose which task they are currently working on and Time Doctor 2 monitors how much time is spent on each of those tasks. They can also quickly and easily let Time Doctor 2 know when they take a break from their work by clicking on the Pause button. A manager can also access a report that shows how much time was spent on each task, how much time was spent taking breaks, a chronological timeline version of that report, and the total time worked for the day.

Keyboard and Mouse Activity

Mouse movements and clicks are counted as well as keystrokes. Time Doctor 2 does not record which keys were pressed, only that a key, in general, was pressed. A manager can specify how long a team member is allowed to be idle with no computer activity before they will receive a popup asking if they are still working. If there is no response to the popup, the team member is automatically put on a Break.

Web and App Tracking

Web and App Tracking report shows you where time is spent. Time Doctor 2 can track not only root domains but also individual pages under that domain. You can also set individual productivity rating for a website or an application.
