Welcome to the workfolio!
In this article, we’d like to provide some tips on how to make Workfolio more friendly for your employees.
Many of the suggestions below have a tradeoff. Some of them may be more employee-friendly but may result in time tracking being a bit less accurate or you getting less insight into work activity. Try different settings to decide what works best for your company.
Allow employees to see their screenshots.
Allow employees to delete their screenshot.
Blur or disable screenshots.
Reduce the time interval between each screenshot
Disable the apps usage tracking
Allow some “unproductive” time each day.
Understand that some idle time is normal.
(You can find more information about this here.)
Track your own work with Workfolio.
(Viewing your own data may help you understand that some unproductive/idle time is normal.)
Educate your managers on how to use Workfolio effectively without micromanaging.
Let Your Employees Know That:
You don’t expect to see 100% productive time on Workfolio.
You understand that productivity, as measured by Workfolio, is only based on websites and apps used. So, it may not correlate with the actual quality of their work or their output volume.
You don’t plan to use Workfolio as a micromanagement tool.
