After using StaffCounter for several days, you should instruct it how to determine the productivity of the applications and websites that your employees use.

For your convenience, StaffCounter offers the ability to divide programs and services into different categories, such as Office applications, Games, Communication, Business, Education, and News. For each category you can determine whether it is productive for your business, neutral, or an unproductive use of time. After this, you can associate any program or visited website with one of these categories.

To begin, open the Settings page and set the overall productivity value for each category.

 

In the page of menu Reports – > Reports by time, specify the category for each program or website.
