Mechanisms to detect the gaming of Desktime

By Sean 3 years ago

Two methods I'm aware of are just moving the mouse every minute or two while you talking to someone but you don't want idle time (nothing else changes, nothing is keyed on the keyboard and only the mouse moves for a second every minute or two.) The other is holding down a keyboard key in a word or text document (possibly with the arm of a chair held over the space bar or something else that is relatively inconspicuous.) An auto-clicker might also work. #2 may be able to be caught on screenshots if you can find the needle in the haystack but the others are harder to detect if you can detect them at all unless the abuse is extreme.

Dear Sean, you have forgot, that Desktime is not government application, so neither DeskTime stuff, nor you have any rights to demand employees to submit authentic data about their application usage. It's absolutely free will of each employee whether he behaves naturally when using PC or clicks randomly some keys.
If you want authentic data, please, put a cameraman and gunman behind each employee and you will get 100% efficiency and 100% productivity until you will get arrested for enslavement...
