Time Tracking Modes in WorkComposer

Time Tracking Modes Explained

Tracking employee time and productivity is essential for any organization. WorkComposer is a time-tracking tool that offers flexible and innovative modes of time tracking. It caters to various business needs with its Automatic, Manual, and Stealth modes. Whether you prefer automation or manual input, WorkComposer has got you covered. Let's explore how each mode can transform your time management and productivity.

Automatic Mode: Effortless Tracking for Maximum Productivity

WorkComposer’s Automatic tracking mode is a great way to simplify your employees’ time tracking and maximize productivity. It's effortless to use and starts tracking when users' computers become active. They don't need to click the “Start” button when beginning the work, as the software detects the activity and automatically starts tracking. If your employees need to step away, it will shift to break mode and resume tracking once they're back and touch the mouse or keystrokes. Suppose your employees need to use the computer to do some personal activities. In that case, they can click the “Finish” button, and the tracking will stop unless the “Start” button is submitted again. This mode offers comprehensive insights into employee productivity without needing manual intervention.

Manual Mode: You're in Control

You can switch to Manual mode if you prefer to give your employees more control and autonomy over their work sessions. This mode allows users to start and stop their work sessions anytime, allowing them to manage their work hours according to their personal needs. If somehow your employee clicked on the “Break’’ and, returning from the break, forgot to click on the “Start’’ button to resume tracking, WorkComposer will show a ‘’Back to work’’ reminder so that users remember to click the “Start” button. You can enable this option in the Tracking settings. Manual mode is ideal for tasks that require undivided attention without system interruptions.

To enable Manual mode, follow these simple steps:

  1. Sign up or log in to your WorkComposer account.
  2. Click on the "Tracking Settings" on the left sidebar.
  3. Disable Automatic mode, located at the top of the page.

Sometimes, it’s easy to forget to accurately track work hours, especially when you step away from the desks for a break or meeting and return to work without resuming tracking. WorkComposer's Manual Tracking mode addresses this oversight with a "Show Back to Work" reminder feature. When you return to your desk and resume work activities, a pop-up appears on the screen, asking if you are back to work. This reminder nudges you to hit the "Yes" button to resume tracking work time immediately, minimizing gaps in our work records.

Fusion Mode (Stealth): Discreet and Efficient

WorkComposer introduces a unique feature that sets it apart from other tracking apps - the Stealth Mode. This innovative mode is not just another addition to time tracking; it's a game-changer for businesses seeking discreet yet effective ways to monitor productivity.

WorkComposer operates silently in the background in Stealth mode. Unlike conventional monitoring techniques, this mode is practically invisible to the user and ensures smooth productivity tracking. It captures essential data without indication, making it suitable for sensitive work environments where discretion is crucial. Users cannot view the Start, Break, or Finish buttons. In this mode, breaks are also detected automatically.

When you enable Stealth Mode in WorkComposer, you opt for a more discreet way of tracking work hours. An essential part of this mode is deciding not to display the horizontal tracking bar on the user's screen. This choice ensures that the tracking process remains invisible, offering a distraction-free environment for your team.

Implementing Stealth mode is straightforward:

  1. Sign up or log in to your WorkComposer account.
  2. Click on the "Tracking Settings" on the left sidebar.
  3. Enable Stealth mode, located directly under the Automatic mode

WorkComposer’s detailed guide will provide instructions to install the app remotely on Windows systems.

Premium Feature: Extended Stealth Mode

Extended Stealth Mode is a premium feature in WorkComposer that allows discreet operation and reduces user interaction with the app. It is designed to track work time unobtrusively, with the only visible sign of the app's presence being a small icon. This is necessary for compliance and transparency reasons. When users click on the icon, they receive a gentle reminder that their work time is being tracked, which fosters a sense of awareness and responsibility. The real benefit of Extended Stealth Mode is that it prevents casual stopping or logging out of the app. To stop tracking, users must deliberately uninstall the app. This ensures consistent tracking and reduces the likelihood of accidental work interruptions. It is an excellent solution for employers who value transparency and diligence in worktime monitoring.
