FAQs [Frequently Asked Questions]
This easy-to-use time tracking software enables you to boost the productivity of your remote team. This, in turn, means you can review their progress more effectively.
Once your team members download this application, they can use it to track their time, take screenshots, record activity levels, and more.
It has several other features, and it can also integrate with other apps you use like Trello and Quickbooks as well.
Thus, it enables you to, for instance, manage projects better and pay your team automatically if you like.
Based on a freemium model, Hubstaff has a free plan aimed at individual users, and its paid plans start from $5/month/user going all the way to $20/month/user. You get 2 free months if you sign up for an annual subscription.
Hubstaff activity is simply a measure of how actively and frequently are you using your mouse and keyboard.
Thus, you can increase your Hubstaff activity by ensuring that you don’t sit idle unnecessarily while your Hubstaff timer is running.
If you need to attend to something else (like a phone call, or a pet, or a friend, or TV news), just pause your Hubstaff application, and take as long as you want.
PS: An ‘active’ second is when there is some kind of mouse or keyboard movement during that second. Your Hubstaff activity %age is the total number of active seconds divided by 600 seconds (i.e. a 10-minute segment).
PPS: How good or bad your activity depends on the kind of task you are doing. For instance, your Hubstaff activity rate while you are watching a video tutorial would almost certainly be very low, whereas if you are actively writing code or an article, your activity rate will be (comparatively) higher.
Hubstaff is a perfect time tracker; its reliability is proven by many companies. But there is more than one time tracking software packed as rich as Hubstaff is.
The one, my team, uses is TimeCamp that also has project management and budgeting features. Hope you like it as much as we do!
Thanks for your comment Ola. Yes, there are a good few gems out there when it comes to time tracking. We prefer HubStaff because it has tons of features, it integrates very well with several other tools we use, and honestly, moving to a new tool is something we don’t really see a need for.
