This article has a very small target audience. If you have a website where you help your customers find temporary remote employees like upwork.com or freelancer.com but smaller – this article is for you, otherwise you’d probably be better off reading about something else.
We have added to our time tracking tool a new bar chart on the reports that for the selected employees and projects shows time tracked daily:
We have also added “Apps & URLs” pie chart. This shows you what applications and what websites were used the most by the selected employees for selected period
All projects now have color associated with them. When you are on the dashboard, this allows you to identify with ease what project your employees are currently working on:
The colors are assigned at random, but you can always change it on the Projects page:
We have a new version of the employee desktop application that we hope you will like.
1. Previous tasks
In the list of the tasks we now show not only today’s tasks, but the tasks from the previous days (see below in grey). This gives users the option to select this task again with a single click. Users can also see the summary of hours for the previous day without going to the web.
So you track time for the company you work for that demands that you to do so – that is understandable. But why would you volunteer to track your time for yourself when you are not being asked about it? To name a few reasons:
- You time is valuable. See for yourself how much of it is spent on each tasks and increase your productivity on spending time on what is important
- Review your own screenshots to recall what you’ve been doing
- Even if you didn’t add a note of what you were doing, App & URL tracking will show you exactly what programs were running and what websites you’ve been to
- And if you did a good job – why not share it with your clients ?
- Unless you share – only you will see the result and you can do it completely free on the Free plan
Lets see how you can do it Continue reading
To comply with numerous regulations and certifications for many of our clients it becomes the simplest option to run Screenshot Monitor on their own servers. We can install it all for you, brand it to your company name, take care of all of the update and support issues. You would have a complete control over the data collected by the application – all of it will stay within your organization and you will be able to use it on the unlimited number of users.
How much does it cost?
There is a $4,500 fee for the setup (this includes your company branding) and $450/month maintenance fee that covers all of the support issues for up to 100 users. (Prices are subject to change.)
There are no other charges. If you have over 100 users, each additional user is $3.50/month.
What is required to set this up?
We need a remote access to your Windows server (Windows 2012 or later, preferably dedicated) with moderate hardware specs to set it up (8 GB RAM, 100+ HDD any mid-level CPU ), SSL certificate for the domain where you would like it all to run and an email account to send emails from.
Alternatively for a small fee we can continue web hosting on our servers and setup a storage on your servers for screenshots only. Then you will be in full control over access to the screenshots. Contact Us for more info.
You can assign users in your team to the Manager’s role and select the users they manage on the Team page. Managers will also be able to edit their employees’ time on their timeline – just the same as the employees edit it themselves.
In the case of conflicts or mistakes – all of the changes are being logged and available to both the manager and the employee from “Change history” link at the bottom of the timeline.

UPDATE: We do not offer white label websites at the moment
Recently we’ve introduced Hrundl.com – the site that users can use instead of ScreenshotMonitor.com. This site is just an example of a simple white label option. For a small setup fee (currently $950) this site can bear your company name and be accessible through your domain name.
In more details, the setup gives you :
- Your company name & logos everywhere instead of ours
- Your custom CSS applied
- 3rd level domain like YourCompany.hrundl.com
Second level domains are $20/month and require your SSL certificate.
If you want to resell the white label like this, you will get 30% of every transaction. Our part is 70% or $200 monthly – whatever is greater. There’s $950 fee for the setup to be paid upfront. This will be returned back to you as part of you 30% commission

While “Screenshot Monitoring” describes what we do precisely, our clients tell us that some of employees are uneasy with those words. (And this is despite the fact that we are the only service that would rather loose customers than sacrifice their employees privacy.)
Don’t like “Screenshot Monitor”? Tell your employees to use Hrundl.com instead. There’s no difference between the two services other than the name. Everywhere you saw “Screenshot Monitor” you will see “Hrundl” including the desktop app. The same logins and same data is accessible through both sites. NO DIFFERENCE.
Is this a re-branding? Not really. Actually this is part of our white label project. For a small setup fee the service can bear your company name and your custom website name. (Read more about white label options)
