Let’s start with a comparison of the features available in both products:
Here is a comparison of the reports between the two products. Each of these reports offers different insights into user’s work.
|Report||Time Doctor Classic||Time Doctor 2|
This report shows the total time worked, idle minutes/seconds, time spent on unproductive websites and applications, and manual and mobile time.
This report allows a manager to see who was absent or late each day and the reason(s) why. You can also view the user’s start time for their shift, the shift length, and break time within the shift along with the reasons for being absent and/or late provided by the users.
This report works with the work schedule settings you’ve enabled for your users. Once configured, it shows the shift status, including if the user is late, absent, or full attendance, depending on the hours they work; the start time of their scheduled shift vs the actual time they started their shift; and the expected work hours vs how many hours the user actually worked.
This report gives you one place to export reports for the selected users/groups within the time range you’ve selected. You can choose to export data ranging from basics, such as emails, employee IDs, total time worked, and so on, to more granular data, such as manual and mobile time percentages, productive and unproductive time, idle minutes/seconds, etc.
This is the first page/report you’ll see when you log in. As an admin/manager, you’ll have access to the latest screenshots taken for online users, the low activity percentages over the last seven days, see which users are online and tracking time, the total time worked by users, and the timeline view of the user’s work hours in a day or over a week.
This is the first page/report you’ll see when you log in. As an admin, you can view the team dashboard and the user dashboard.
Team Dashboard: You can select users or groups and view the data accordingly. You can view details, such as time worked, productive and unproductive time, trends, top users and projects, users with the highest number of hours worked, and users with the greatest amount of low activity.
User Dashboard: You can view the data based on the single user you select. This will show you total time worked, idle minutes, productive and unproductive time, timeline view for the selected time period, and top used websites and applications.
This report shows the total time tracked via the mobile application, pin locations on a map tracked when the user was tracking time, the user’s city, the nearest address to the user’s location, and how many times the location was checked for the user when tracking time from the mobile application.
This report shows the total hours worked within the selected time period. You can expand user details to see hours worked by that user each day within the selected time period.
Poor Time Use
The report shows when users visit websites that may not be work related. The reason why these websites are labeled “potential poor time use” is that some, such as Facebook and YouTube, are sometimes used for work.
Note: These websites and applications can’t be customized as productive or unproductive.
Only websites that are used for 10 minutes or more are included in this report.
This is available as part of the Web & App Usage report.
Projects & Tasks Report
This report is a very helpful way for a company to review how much time is being spent on a given project and by whom.
This report shows the total hours worked on a project. You can also expand the project details to see the hours worked by the user(s) on the selected project and tasks for the selected time period.
Timesheets are a simple way to display the total number of hours worked for selected users across a range of dates (or on a single day).
An updated version of this is available as the Hours Tracked report.
This shows the total time worked for one or more users. It also indicates how many working hours were received by each task and its associated project.
This report shows the complete detailed breakdown of a single day’s activity for a chosen user or users. The Timeline Report is view-only with options to export or print. It can only be viewed one day at a time.
This report shows who’s currently online and tracking time; either the name of the latest task the users are working on or how long it’s been since they last tracked time; the total time worked for the day; and the start time and end time for their shift. You can also view a detailed report of the user’s daily activities from start time to end time and the breaks taken in between. You can view this for the selected users or team over the selected time period.
Note: This report can only be viewed on a per day or per week basis.
Web & App Usage
This report shows the total time tracked on each individual website and application as well as the total time spent on each within the selected time frame and for the selected users.
This report shows the trends for the user’s total productive and unproductive time. You can also view the total computer time, the URLs of the websites visited, the names of the applications used while tracking time, and the total time spent on these websites and applications.
