Activity Breakdown - Activity Type

Assess how total, productive and unproductive time is spent across teams and individuals. Using goals, quickly evaluate how a team’s behavior compares to the goal state. Use trends to see variations over time and category allocation to quickly assess where time is dedicated.

Key Questions:


Is my team engaging in productive activities on a daily basis? Compared to goals?

It is helpful to understand a team’s productivity patterns over a period of time. The aggregation of productive behaviors across a team is tremendously beneficial in achieving productive outcomes. 

Is each employee engaging in productive activity on a daily basis? Compared to goals?

With a focus on support opportunities and improvement, consider answering this question through the lens of “Where can I quickly provide help?” Assess which employees consistently struggled to engage in productive work over a set period of time. Perhaps they are unclear on goals (role alignment), struggling with how to complete a task (training), and or dispassionate about the work (engagement). 

Where is time being spent?

Immediately assess where unproductive distractions exist by looking at where time is allocated across your team. Share this data as the basis for setting team-wide or individual goals to increase or decrease these numbers over time.



Average Productive Hrs/Day: Each team's Avg. Productive Hrs/Day reflects their average productive time for the selected time period and compared to the specified productive hrs/day goal. You can update goals on the benchmarks & goals page.

Team Activity Type vs Goal: The Team Activity Type bar reflects the average productive, unproductive and undefined time for the selected team(s). The purple dot represents the Productive Time goal defined for the team. We view this bar for quick insights into daily team performance.

Note that your Administrator can update Productivity classifications for the organization and for individual teams by navigating to Settings > Classification.

User Activity Type vs Goal: See the average amount of time each user spent on productive, unproductive and undefined activities each day during the selected time period. This table provides a view of individual user performance in the context of other team members and against the team's goals (see the Productive Hrs/Day vs. Goal column).

Productivity Lab Tip 

Here is where great coaching opportunities happen. See who may need immediate support when their numbers fall short among their peers.
