Overall Satisfaction with Time Doctor

Time Doctor is being used by our property management company to help track and manage time spent away from the office, whether it being on-site visits, off-site meetings, or working remotely from home or other locations. Many of our meetings with boards and communities take place in the evenings and it is helpful to show how much time is spent on those meetings for those communities.
  • It tracks computer activity, yet can be configured to pause while managing personal computer tasks.
  • It can be edited so that non-computer tasks such as site visits or meetings can be accounted for.
  • It is very helpful to refer to when submitting time sheets.
  • The non-computer task description fields have limits as far as details that can be added.
  • Keeping track of time spent on the computer and other tasks while away from the office.
  • The only negative impact is that some employees are resistant to use it because entering in the info manually while away from the computer is one more thing for them to do. Additionally, some are wary of any software which would have access to their personal computers and information.
  • The positive impact is that it can show the owner of the company how much his employees do for the company.

Time Doctor is well suited for certain businesses where some or many of the employees are now working remotely due to the pandemic and post-pandemic times. It is a good way for the employer to keep track of activity and (more or less) keep people honest.

For businesses and employees where there are a lot of site visits, travel, etc., Time Doctor is a little impractical since it requires the employee to manually enter in whatever time was spent on tasks performed away from the computer. If an employer is hoping to track that activity, they still need to rely on the employees' honor systems to enter in times and tasks.
