App and URL Tracking

We are happy to announce the release of application and url tracking.  This means that you can get data on the applications that your team is using and more effectively monitor your team.  

This is an optional feature, so the data is turned OFF by default and you will need to turn it ON for certain users or toggle the default for your entire organization.

Your team will also need to be running the most recent update of the Hubstaff software found on our download page. They may also “Check for Updates” from the desktop application.
Java apps due to the design of Java, do not always detect as the correct application, but do always get seen as “something” Java (i.e. Netbeans showing up as Android SDK manager on the list of apps in Hubstaff).

Step 1

Turn on Application Tracking for Your Team. Here’s how to change the settings in Hubstaff. Click on “Settings” on the sidebar menu, then choose “Track apps & URLs” and make sure Apps & URLs are enabled. You would also have to make sure that you have chosen the right organization by checking the top right corner of the page.

Step 3

Check Out All the Awesome Data. After you change the settings for your team, you’ll get access to all the applications your team is using on the Activities screen.


The App data will look like this:

The URL data will look like this:

The next step is produce awesome reports that will allow team members to improve productivity and to really understand where time is being spent during the day.
