Let’s face it. Motivating your employees is not exactly a science. And if you have been using the same motivational techniques for ages – it does not need you are doing the most effective job. Sometimes you even achieve the opposite and de-motivate you employees. Let’s take a fresh look at what really works.
Now it is far more joyful to use the employee timesheet. To make it so, we re-engineered the page. You can now understand at a glance how much an employee was working in a current month as well as details for a current date:
Click on a name of an employee from My Home to get to the timesheet or Sign Up if have not started using ScreenshotMonitor yet.
Have you happened to forget to start Screenshot Monitor? Or did some billable work offline?
No problem. You can now add manual time to your timeline. Just click “Add offline time” at the bottom of your timeline:

Furthermore, you can now edit notes or delete your activity directly on timeline. Note that your manager could do the same changes on your timeline. All of the changes are written to “History of changes” and are available through the link on the bottom of your timeline.
We have updated our reporting tool. Now it is very easy to see and export to Excel your own time or the time tracked by your employees. Select all or specific employees, use date- range shortcuts, see time sheets grouped by date or detailed and download it for further analysis or to generate invoices.
Just go to screenshotmonitor.com/reports or Sign Up now if are not on ScreenshotMonitor yet.

SSM has Autostart and Autostop options – it stops automatically if they are away (for example left for lunch or at the end of the day) and will resume once they resume the work.
