Activity levels is a great way to see how productive a team member is throughout a day.
Our formula to calculate activity level is as follows:
- Check every 10 seconds if the user used their keyboard/mouse.
- Calculate the percentage of 10 seconds periods in a 10 minute period with activity.
- Data entry industry has high average activity levels because users are always active (using their keyboard/mouse)
- Software developers can have lower activity levels because they can spend a lot of time thinking about code or watching tutorials.
The best way to see if your employee is productive is to review their timeline (Screenshots, etc.)
For example, if the 10-minute period has an activity level of 30%, it means that users used their keyboard/mouse only 3 minutes out of 10.
