After selecting a plan, a company manager invites employees to the company team. When employees accept the invitation, they can start tracking time and submitting their screenshots for that company.
Employees install the ScreenshotMonitor desktop application , sign in, select a project and press the Start button to start tracking time and screenshots for that project. Note that the application works perfectly even when offline. The data will automatically be uploaded to the web when the web connection is restored.
The application starts tracking employee’s time and taking screenshots at random intervals until the Stop button is pressed. If Autostart option is selected, the program will start whenever employees start using their computers. The program will also automatically stop tracking if there is no activity. This may be useful for tracking in-office employees where full-time tracking is needed. Note: Employees will always be aware that the program is running on their computers. By design there is no way of running ScreenshotMonitor in stealth/spy mode.
The desktop application continuously sends time tracking data and screenshots to the web so managers can monitor their employees in real time. There is nothing for managers to install — they can see all the information online through screenshotmonitor.com. On the dashboard managers can see when and for how long each of their employees have worked, who is active at the moment and the latest screenshot.
On employee's timeline you can see more details: how much time and money was spent on each project and each tasks, user activity level, applications that were running and websites visited along with the time spent on each. And of course all of the screenshots taken that day from employee's monitor at random intervals with frequency up to 30 per hour. Employees see the same information and can add time manually ("Offline time").
