This practical guide will give you all the information you and your team need to enjoy the benefits TransparentBusiness has to offer. TransparentBusiness is an end-to-end project management platform that helps you coordinate and manage your distributed workforce transparently.
TransparentBusiness’s platform works together with a desktop application
that each user downloads to their computer. This timer app takes screenshots
of the user’s computer every three minutes, amounting to 20 screenshots in an hour.
The accumulated screenshots can be accessed through the “Work Diary” of
each team member on the Timesheet report. Everyone with the role of Administrator
or Manager (clients have the authority to access all work diaries related
to their projects) will be able to see the screenshots registered by every
user in the account. Contractors (like most team members) will only see their own screenshots.
When you tap on the block of hours of the user you are interested in,
you access the Work Diary for that day:
The Work Diary also allows filtering by project, so that you can more easily
find the screenshots you are looking for.
To see any of the screenshots in detail, click on them to enlarge.
The screenshots also show productivity metrics such as keyboard and mouse interactions per minute.
The screenshots are an ideal way to follow work progress in real time.
When your team is working with heavy files, instead of waiting for
the files to be sent to you, you can check what has been developed
via the Work Diary.
You can also discuss project plans and provide further direction via the
screenshots. Select a screenshot you want to talk about and click on the
blue “Comment” button, which will take you to the Collaboration section.
