Time tracker for a more balanced workday

In addition to tracking time, the DeskTime app can also help its users improve their time management and take better care of themselves at work. With the daily time tracking report, employees can see how much time they've spent on each task and how productive they've been. That lets them follow their own performance and see, for example, where they can improve. Meanwhile, the built-in Pomodoro timer will remind users to take breaks to ensure they get the much-needed rest for their eyes and minds.
