Monitask Overview

What is Monitask?

Monitask delivers employee monitoring solutions for companies of all sizes that have remote team members such as freelancers, contractors, remote employees, and employees that work from home occasionally. Tools including advanced screenshot and activity monitors, as well as time tracking capabilities, keep teams focused on the task at hand to boost productivity, efficiency, and accountability across the team. Managers can also access the dashboard via any device to keep track of their team anytime, anywhere.

With Monitask, employees and freelancers are able to manually start a clock when they begin working on an assignment for employers. The application takes screenshots randomly or at assigned intervals as evidence that work is being performed. Monitoring tools allow employers to view mouse and keyboard activity, check the programs their employee or freelancer is using, as well as view reports to see which program is being used and for how long. Users can create projects for their team and assign relevant employees in order to gather all the information they need on the project’s progress.

Monitask gives employers a clear picture of the time teams spend on each project by providing them with statistics, and the ability to generate reports. Reports enable employers to determine the cost of each project, analyze their employees’ output, as well as use the information to create invoices. Team members can also use the reporting function to view their hours worked online.

The best of the best!

I used to use a time tracking software but it didn't take screenshots and remind me of idle time. I like both of the features because it gives some accountability.

As an entrepreneur, I often feel guilt that I'm not spending "enough" time working on various projects. Once I started using Monitask, everything became objective and my time has started to become more valuable.

Things that get measured get improved. This objective feedback on how I'm spending my time has given me so much encouragement and motivation. I can see progress happen, and I'm able to feel better about the work I do.

Missing features

Overall I liked this system but without few features mentioned above, it will be difficult to use it for long term.

A great way to track how efficient you are!

It's been great! Time saver and lets me see what tasks are taking much of my time!

simple and affordable

Well it solves the purpose of monitoring your remote employee and helps in getting the productivity from them. The reports are very well detailed and provides good insight though more improvements can be done.

Pros

It is very easy to use and the design of the platform is clean and easy to understand.

Cons

I liked other software to download an app,I don't believe this app has that option.

Pros

Ease of use
Weekly reports by project that give you a visual overview of how you spent your time

Cons

I would like a colorful chart or graph that gives a visual breakdown of how I spent my workweek (time spent by project). At least they provide a numerical total hours logged by project, and by week.

Overall I liked this system but without few features mentioned above, it will be difficult to use it for long term.

Pros

User friendly interface, Required reporting features.

Main thing I liked about this is ability to select currency for each individual separately.

Cons

It do not have some of the features like

1) We can not provide access to client for reviewing project and where time is consumed

2) It do not have a way to put non billable hours. For example, if I have worked 5 hours on a project and want to bill my client only 2 hours. I can not do that. I have to delete 3 hours in order to do it but I need those 3 hours information for future reference.

3) It do not Integrate with task management software like Office 365, Jira

4) Good to have video recording feature apart from screenshot

It's been great! Time saver and lets me see what tasks are taking much of my time!

Pros

This takes screenshot, automatically groups my time depending on the task I am focusing on, and so easy to use! UI looks good too!

Cons

For now - at least I don't like that I need to manually click Sync to server to get updated of things, I like that to be automatic
