TransparentBusiness’s platform works together with a desktop application that each user downloads to their computer. This timer app takes screenshots of the user’s computer every three minutes, amounting to 20 screenshots in an hour.
The accumulated screenshots can be accessed through the “Work Diary” of each team member on the Timesheet report. Everyone with the role of Administrator or Manager (clients have the authority to access all work diaries related to their projects) will be able to see the screenshots registered by every user in the account. Contractors (like most team members) will only see their own screenshots.
When you tap on the block of hours of the user you are interested in, you access the Work Diary for that day:
The Work Diary also allows filtering by project, so that you can more easily find the screenshots you are looking for.
To see any of the screenshots in detail, click on them to enlarge.
The screenshots also show productivity metrics such as keyboard and mouse interactions per minute.
You can also discuss project plans and provide further direction via the screenshots. Select a screenshot you want to talk about and click on the blue “Comment” button, which will take you to the Collaboration section.
