The Settings → Applications tab shows a list of applications and web pages statis­tics of which has been collected by the agents. The most frequent applications and websites are already grouped and their productivity statuses are set.

Applications tab

New sites and applications not encountered by the system before will be  added to the unsorted list in the end of the page. They are assigned Non-core productivity status.

To change the productivity status of the new entry it either needs to be placed in a cho­sen group where it will be assigned the group’s productivity status, or select the status of the application from the Productivity column (it is displayed only if uniform setting for positions is enabled in the Settings → Configuration → Positions tab), or by editing position set­tings in Settings → Positions tab.

Productivity status selection

By right-clicking the table and selecting Edit from the context menu, the Edit window will be displayed. A group’s (or application’s) title can be changed there.

There are 4 settings of the productivity status:

  • Productive means that for this position the group (of applications and websites) is necessary for work and the time spent working there is productive;

  • Non-core means that for this position the group (of applications and websites) is not necessary for work.

  • Non-productive means that for this position the group (of applications and websites) cannot be used for work and is distractive.

  • Ignore means that for this position the group (of applications and websites) is not counted when calculating productivity statistics for display.

The Reset included item resets entries of a group to default productivity settings.

Creating and editing groups

When creating a new group by either clicking the New group button from the top menu or by using the context menu, the window identical to group editing window shall appear where the group’s name and productivity status for existing positions has to be set.

Removal of groups

To remove a group select it and click the Remove button. When removing of the group unlike removing a group of profiles (see item 7.1), only the group itself is removed and the in­cluded applications and websites are moved to the upper level of the list.

Editing and creating records of programs and websites

To edit the title and the executable file name of the program choose Edit from the con­text menu of the item. Wildcard (*) can be used in the file name.

Editing an application settings

For example if the mask chrome* is used the usage sta­tistics for the applications chrome64.exe, chrome.exe, and chrome_bar.exe will be at­tributed to this program, but old_chrome.exe will not be counted under this record.

When editing an entry for the website you can change its title, domain (* mask can be used), path, and GET parame­ter.

Entries of programs and websites can be created manually without waiting for the sys­tem to receive statistics of usage. In the upper horizontal menu click New application or New website (this way the entry will be added to the upper level of the list), or from the con­text menu of the group (the entry will be placed into the group).

When creating the new application or website record the window analogous to the edit­ing window will appear. For a new website in addition to the title, domain, PATH, and GET parameter can be set. PATH and GET are used to differentiate between different pages of same domain.

Path and get parameters

For example, if an entry in­cluding as a do­main and group123456 as a PATH has its status set to Pro­ductive and another entry includ­ing domain only has its status set to Non-produc­tive, then viewing the group123456 will be considered productive by the system and viewing any other pages on will be considered non-productive. The GET field works similarly and allows to set different productivity statuses for different GET parameters.

The status of an entry can be manually set to be different from the group hosting this entry (it is kept when the group’s status changes).

Removing entries of programs and websites

Program and website entries can be removed, but they will appear in the root level of the list if the usage statistics for these entries is received. The previously recorded statistics for removed entries will be deleted and will not be included in reports.

Select checkboxes or the entries to be removed and click the Remove button.
