DeskTime is a time tracking software that enables teams to create shifts, manage absences, track productivity. Freelancers use DeskTime to track their time, send timesheets to clients, and generate invoices. This software aims to boost productivity, keep projects organized, and save time by eliminating manual timesheets. DeskTime offers an automatic time tracker that calculates your productivity and provides reliable data. You can also use DeskTime for project time tracking, which provides an overview of your progress and bills clients for all of your completed work. The software's time billing feature establishes hourly rates and calculates project costs based on your timesheets.
Another notable feature is the built-in Pomodoro timer, which reminds users to take breaks from work every 52, 60, or 90 minutes. This improves productivity levels by reducing burnout and enhances time management. Employees can also set private time to take care of tasks that are not related to their work. DeskTime will not track time or computer activity while the private time feature is in effect. Businesses can use DeskTime to ensure that employees maintain a healthy work-life balance and monitor time spent away from work with offline time tracking. You can categorize offline time as productive, unproductive, or neutral. This software is extremely accessible and offers a mobile app that allows businesses to monitor their team's performance from any location.
DeskTime offers scheduling capabilities that are more efficient and quicker than using traditional spreadsheets. The work schedules provide daily, weekly, and monthly overviews and prevent overstaffing or understaffing. Businesses can easily combine their time tracking and shift planning with DeskTime, eliminating the need for separate and costly systems. Employees have the flexibility to manage their schedules and identify their preferred shifts. DeskTime's scheduling feature also enables managers to generate detailed performance reports on productivity, efficiency, and offline time.
Businesses have the option to purchase additional billing and invoicing features that automatically convert time tracking data into invoices. You can create reusable templates or save client details to streamline your billing practices and shift your focus to completing projects. The invoices are downloaded directly to your work computer or immediately sent to the client. DeskTime provides an overview of all invoices and organizes them by number, recipient, status. You can also enable reminders for clients have outstanding bills and missed their payment due date.
