Insightful has rich reporting features to help you analyze employee productivity, attendance, break time and inactivity adherence, work behaviour and more.

Each report from almost each dashboard can be exported as a .csv file so you can analyze stats outside Insightful web platform and / or submit reports to someone that does not have the access to Insightful.

Note: In case you customize the column view on your Dashboard, please bear in mind that this will be reflected in the exported CSV, i.e. if you hide one column, the data from that column won't be present in the export.
