In this article, we’ll show you how to install Time Doctor on a remote desktop server so that your users can run the Time Doctor app when they connect to your remote desktop server.

Note: When installed on a remote server, the Time Doctor desktop app will ONLY monitor the activity inside the remote session and NOT on the local user’s PC. If you want to track the activity on the local PC as well, you must install the Time Doctor desktop app on the local PC in addition to the remote server. However, doing so for the silent version of the app will create an additional user in your account while interactive users may find it cumbersome having to track time using two different instances of the app.

You will need administrative access to your server to successfully complete steps below.

Step 1. Download the Time Doctor desktop app.

Step 2. Run the installer on your server using the following parameters:

--mode unattended --forAllUsers 1 --runAfterInstall 0

Note: The parameters above work with Time Doctor version 3.0.22 and above.

Step 3. After installation is complete, open your Server Manager console and navigate to Remote Desktop Services -> Collections -> QuickSessionCollection.
(If you don’t have Remote Desktop Services installed, please install them from Add Roles and Features.)

Step 4. Click on Tasks and select “Publish RemoteApp Programs.” Then select “Time Doctor” from the list of programs and click Publish.

That’s it! Now when your remote users connect to this server, they’ll see the Time Doctor desktop app on their desktop.
