Hubstaff Features In Depth

Time Tracking

Hubstaff offers native desktop applications for time tracking, which are designed for specific operating systems. Remote workers can manually enter the time they spend working on projects or track the time automatically. They can also enable multi-monitor support as a way to capture the activity on all the digital monitors they use.

In order to take full advantage of Hubstaff’s powerful time tracking capabilities, you should enable automatic time tracking. You can add notes and comments about the work you’ve done right from Hubstaff’s desktop app or the cloud. Hubstaff is setup to recognize when you’ve stopped working for the day or taken a break for lunch, and the application will automatically stop tracking time when it senses inactivity. Employee payments and rates are then updated automatically based on the exact amount of time that was spent working on client projects.

Screenshots

When it comes to keeping accurate records and proving the time spent working on a project, it’s impossible to argue with record that includes screenshots. Hubstaff captures images of each team member’s work screen at regular intervals as a way to monitor activity and promote accurate record keeping. (Admins also have the option to turn screenshots off at any time.)

Setup the screenshot interval you prefer. With Hubstaff, you can take up to three screenshots every 10 minutes. Randomized screenshots also give you an accurate idea of what your team members are actually doing when they’re working on client projects. Hubstaff’s screenshot tool goes hand in hand with its activity tracker, with tracks the number of mouse movements and keyboard strokes that a team member makes in a given period of time. This data is then used to generate color-coded activity bars, which you can review to see how active your team members have been each day.

Application & Website Tracking

Application and URL tracking provide team leaders with deep insights into what their employees are working on while they’re tracking time. This feature not only leads to more productive workers, but it also creates more satisfied clients who are confident that they’re being billed for the actual hours worked on their projects. Hubstaff’s monitoring tools run on Mac, Windows, and Linux.

Use Hubstaff’s URL and application monitoring tools to see which applications and websites your team members are using while they’re tracking time. Click on the team member’s name, and you’ll see a list of apps that he or she has visited during the period when time was being tracked. See the app name, total time spent, and percent of time used.

Automatic Payroll

Hubstaff has been able to decrease the actual time managers spend dealing with payroll, and also improve payment accuracy, with automatic payroll tools. Payments can be processed through Paypal, Payoneer, or Transpay. (Additional payment options are coming soon.)

You only have to set up payments once before Hubstaff is ready to take control. Set the hourly or fixed rates that each of your contractors should receive, and Hubstaff will automatically pay each person based on the time they’ve tracked. Automatic payroll can be setup to handle weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly pay periods. Budgeting and time limit tools prevent employees from continuing to log time once they’ve hit their weekly maximums, which helps businesses avoid going over budget.

Love the daily email recaps

09/09/2015

The email reports allow me to not need to log in to the app every day and quickly get a feel for how the team performed the day prior.

Pros

Another nice feature is that it not only tracks total time logged, but also which apps were used and websites visited.

Cons

Honestly, none...very easy to get setup.

I'm a freelance photo editor and I started using Hubstaff because the app offered screenshots of my desktop, application tracking and URL tracking. I think the app was a bit hard to get understand at first to but once I did I've enjoyed what it has to offer.

Pros

Great customer support, takes screenshots of desktop, URL tracking, application tracking.

Cons

No monthly reports, no invoice generator, no weekly or monthly log.

Hubstaff is a great piece of mind for remote teams

19/09/2015

We had started using Hubstaff in order to minimize wasted time spent by employees and improve our tracking on projects for budgeting. Problem = solved. :) In fact, we get additional data, like activity level, which helps a lot. In the end, we were very happy with our employees, and continue to be! For reference, we're a distributed team of 8 who build customized virtual solutions for our partners looking to grow their business online! One note: You may get some push back from employees to use this, but in my experience, those who dislike it have been dishonest. Most are completely fine with it!

Pros

The pros of the software are simple: you know what people are working on, and when! It makes your operation incredibly efficient. There are lots of integrations and the support is fantastic. One nice touch is the daily notification emails that are sent with time worked, and level of activity. We share these publicly with the team.

Cons

The only cons are: - I wish the public API was more robust, so we could integrate Hubstaff further into other software

A company that really gives that plus!

10/09/2015

When I close the Issue with the desktop app, it comments to the issue the tracked time.

Pros

I mean seriously... you report a bug or something that it is not working as intended and it gets fixed in a short span of time...

Cons

Well maybe if I could add manual time between any range, like: 8:01 - 8:08 not just every 10 minutes like: 8:00, 8:10, 8:20, 8:30... but I usually track instead of adding manually. :)

HubStaff is without a doubt the best tracking software out there

09/09/2015

I had a chance to test almost every tracking software out there and had a lot of letdowns, mostly with people not being able to install and use the tracking software. HubStaff hasn't given any trouble and the Asana integration is a blessing.

Pros

Great reporting platform.

Cons

Fixed plans, can't have a plan for 8 people for example.

Best App on the market

09/09/2015

I looked around for weeks to find the best app for me to track my contractors and employees. Hubstaff is the best I have ever found. Reasonable price and very accurate. In fact it saved me a few thousand dollars because i was able to track a contractor who was spending more time on youtube than my tasks

Pros

- good price - great support - easy to move around in - I like that it tracks keyboard and mouse activity.

Cons

can't think of anything
