WorkPuls is suitable for tracking both remote offices as well as remote individuals. On this page you can read all about settings for teleworkers, telecommuters and other type of remote individuals and freelancers. For remote office settings go to Tracking office workers  – click here. 

Different time zones

WorkPuls captures time from persons’ computer, meaning that if your people are working in different time zones, our software shows their time as it is for them. You can easily and accurately see when did they have off-days or what was happening on a particular date.

Proof of work

You can use WorkPuls to make sure you are paying for correct number of hours, or that remote workers are on task. You can also enable your employees the access to their own profiles and show them how much money did they earn.

Start/Stop WorkPuls:

Remote workers can turn WorkPuls on when they start, or turn it off when they finish working. This way you can be certain that you are paying for the correct number of hours and employees can have a solid proof of their work.

Timeline

Blue color represents Computer Activities (A person was actively working on the computer in Productive, Unproductive or Neutral Apps and Websites; this is filled automatically from the data WorkPuls collected and cannot be deleted). White gaps represent Idle time (There was no computer usage recorded during this period). Grey parts are Other activities, which were added manually (Phone calls, Meetings etc.).

Adding manual activity goes like this: Clicking on “Add other activity” button in the upper right corner opens this a window:

manually enter time in time tracking software
Add other activity

This allows adding Other Activities such as meetings or phone calls. You can choose to add them yourself, or you can enable employees to do that. If computer was used during a meeting, manually added explanations will not affect the blue parts in timeline, they will just fill in the white gaps.

Screenshots:

This feature is also optional and in order to get it, you have to first enable it in Settings > Groups > Group Settings. That’s where you can also set the number of random screenshots that will be taken in one hour.
