Its not always easy to keep track of time when one is deeply focused on an activity that doesn't understand engaging with a device or taking a break after a busy work period. Thats why Insightful has designed reminders called Inactivity dialogs.

These dialogs prompt users after a certain amount of inactive time has been detected while Insightful is running offering them to select the reason for inactivity and thus account for their time.

Inactivity dialogs help keep track of time, focus on priorities and maintain optimal productivity levels.

The feature is enabled by default, which means that every organization will see these prompts until they have been manually disabled. Please note that these settings are available only to Admins, at the organizational level, and can be found in SettingsTracking settingsAdvanced Settings.

Inactivity dialog scenarios

Inactivity dialogs will show up when:

  1. An Employee is not Clocked out.

  2. An Employee is not on a break.

  3. An Employee exceeded their break time.

  4. A computer is not turned off.

  5. The task timer is not stopped.

The scenario that triggers an inactivity dialog will differ based on the tracking scenario and permissions set for users.

Informational dialogs

When the “inactivity dialogs” feature is disabled, they won't be showing up but some other informational dialogs may still appear. These will include the break overage dialog, as well as the dialogs for tasks, breaks, and shift completion.

These informational dialogs will alert the employee when their break time has been exceeded, the break limit has been reached, their shift has ended, or a task has been stopped.

Here are some examples:

Both inactivity and informational dialogs will be present on the screen until the user engages with it.
