In this guide, we'll go over all of Insightful settings so that you can configure Insightful for your organization.

Note: For additional flexibility, see how Insightful supports multiple settings profiles within an account.

Settings profiles
You'll find your shared settings profiles under Settings >> Tracking settings.

Here you can add a new setting profile, or edit an existing one by clicking on the 3 dots menu at the far right and selecting Edit.

Let's go through the settings you can configure:

Visibility Settings ⚙️
Set up whether you want Insightful to be visible to your employees or not. When Insightful is visible (recommended), your employees can also access their own data if you choose, which is a powerful productivity tool for them to be able to analyze their own data. You can learn more about visibility in Insightful here.

Note: If your business is using Projects & Tasks, then Insightful must be visible for them to be able to interact with the platform.

Screenshot Settings 💻

Here you can control:

  • If you want Insightful to take screenshots

  • How often you want those screenshots taken

  • If your staff will have the option to view / delete their own screenshots

Time Tracking ⏲️
Insightful supports multiple time tracking options, as well as allows for setting customizable break settings and controlling when Insightful detects that an employee is idle (no keyboard strokes or mouse movements).

  • Break Time
    Define how much break time employees are allowed to take if any.

  • Idle Time
    Define how much time is allowed before an employee will be considered idle.

  • Tracking Scenario
    Set the specific tracking scenario that you want between:
    - Unlimited
    - Fixed
    - Network-Based
    - Manual Clock in
    - Project-Based

    There are a lot of options here and we recommend learning more on each with our full guide on the different Time and Attendance scenarios.

Permissions 👩‍💻

  • Employees can analyze their own productivity [Recommended]
    Allow employees to access their own productivity stats

  • Employee can see used apps and websites
    Allow employees to see which apps and websites they've used. This is more detailed analysis level than the ability to analyze their productivity.

If you are using our time tracking plan you can also:

  • Track time on tasks ⏲️
    Allow employees to track time against specific tasks by clicking start/stop on the timer to get detailed task-level timesheets.

  • Allow employees to add new tasks 🎫
    Allow employees to add tasks themselves for tracking. If this setting is not enabled, they can only see and track time on tasks that have been added for them by managers.
