Privacy by Design

WiseTime was designed with user privacy as a foremost priority so the control always rests with you. Your data is 100% private until you decide to share it.

Your privacy controls with WiseTime

 The control rests with you

The control rests with you

WiseTime was designed with user privacy as a foremost priority throughout the entire development process. Our goal was to develop a tool that would empower users to get the most out of their time without compromising their privacy. Led by our strong privacy-first principles, and in accord with the GDPR requirements, WiseTime puts you in complete control of your data.

We set out to create the antithesis of a ‘big brother’ employee monitoring program. After several iterations and countless refinements, we are confident in delivering you the very privacy, security and transparency standards and functions that uphold our company principles.

 For your eyes only

For your eyes only

Your activity summary data is 100% private unless and until you decide to share it.

The core difference between WiseTime and the myriad of employee monitoring tools is that all of the personal time information collated into your WiseTime timeline is completely private to you (and always will be).

Unlike monitoring tools where your activities are disclosed in ‘real-time’, WiseTime does not allow your activity to be seen by anyone other than you, unless and until you actively select the activity information and share it.

This means that you always have complete control of what you share, when you share it, and with whom. If you wish to delete your information or simply not share it, it will not be seen by others.

We will never release your private time and activity information without your consent - no exceptions.

Easily separate work from play

Easily separate work from play

We’ve designed exclusion settings that help you easily separate your work and leisure activities. You can adjust your preferences in the desktop app anytime, and WiseTime will simply exclude the specified activities or applications from being captured. This means that you never have to pause or stop WiseTime in order to exclude personal activities. You control what data is released, what data is deleted, and when.

Data Lifecycle Management

Data Lifecycle Management

In addition to the exclusion preferences, we have also included options for data life-cycle management at both a team and personal level.

Your personal data retention settings allow you to control how long we store your personal timeline data for, independently of your team data retention settings. This gives you even more control over the way your private data is managed.

Your personal data retention period is the period of time we will keep your timeline data for, both posted and unposted activity. This means anything older than the time period you set will be permanently deleted. So if you set your retention period to 2 weeks, then all personal timeline data older than 2 weeks will be discarded.

The team data retention settings affect only the posted team data and can be managed by your team administrator. Team data retention will be completely independent of your personal data retention settings and define how long posted data will be stored at the team level.

We also enable you to request the right to be forgotten when you leave a team. Upon request, team administrators can invoke this right for you. In accordance with GDPR regulations, this function means that all of your personal data will be anonymised so your identity can not be determined from your posted-data history. The time entries that you posted to your team do still contribute to reports, but will populate the records in their anonymised form.

 

Great tool for independent contractor! Extremely handy while working different projects for few customers. Another use case is to recall what you work on few weeks ago. ☺- automatic time tracking - smart tags assignments - timesheets generation ☹- can't really say anything, it covers all my current needs

WiseTime I was previously at a firm where I did not need to bill my time so this is new to me but I am very thankful that we use WiseTime because all I have to do at the end of the day is to group my time together and post it. It's simple and fast. ☺I enjoy the fact that I do not have to worry about timing myself when allocating a certain amount of time on a project because I know WiseTime will do it for me. I also love the fact that the software is integrated with Clio, our management program, to bill our clients so no extra steps involved. ☹Although you can pause WiseTime and have it start recording your time when you select maybe having a daily time schedule so when you're done with your day and use the computer without having to remember to stop recording non-work items.

WiseTime's Three E's: Easy, Essential, and Earns You Money The three E's come to mind when using WiseTime. It's Easy: Training employees to use WiseTime is quick and painless. It's Essential: I can work all day and not think of billing one time. This frees me up to do more billable work throughout the day. An essential tool in my productivity. It Earns you money: Before WiseTime, our firm was losing thousands of dollars in small daily tasks like sending a quick email or checking the status of a shipment. With WiseTime, we are able to track every single keystroke and mouse click throughout the day for an accurate count of what happened that day. There is no forgetting about a small task that can be billed out. I will never work without WiseTime running again. It is as simple as that. ☺In addition to its automatic time tracking, Wisetime is so easy to deploy and use. Getting new members set up to use WiseTime is a 1 minute process without all of the clunky steps most software makes you do. Training new employees to track their time is a quick 5 minute process that lends itself to earning more money for your business. ☹There is only one thing I do not like about WiseTime. When tracking time, there are too many clicks that are needed to track. While I understand the thought process that goes behind why it is set up the way it is (tracking one item throughout the day all at once), there are those that track by the hour at the end of the day. This causes more clicking and confusion.

Best thing I've come across to clear my head LOVE this software so mujch. ☺I love this software because I can now get on with my day and I have a bunch of different clients, this takes the stress out of chopping and changing which happens ALOT. I may be in the middle of something and a client calls and I chop over to them and it tracks it all without me having to worry or billing wrong. ☹I bill some clients in 10 hour blocks. I would love an option where I can choose for it to alert me when a certain number of hours are up for a particular client. Maybe add a date and say example: From 10 March let me know when 10 hours is up. It to send an alert...so then I know to invoice again wiuthout having to continually check and then sometimes I'm over the hours by the time I check.

Great Priduct ☺WiseTime helps me track the hours worked and the clients I did work for. Thus, it helps me record my time and do my billing. ☹Not the easiest to use. Also, does not track phone calls.

Best Time Tracking Application on the Market WiseTime's passive time tracking feature is what helped me make the decision. I don't have to start or stop a timer. I log in my computer for the day and don't worry about anything. WiseTime does the heavy lifting. ☺I've done the research, WiseTime provides the best passive time tracking on the market. ☹The only issue I've had with WiseTime is a few glitches with the desktop app.

Invaluable to my Busy Practice Wonderful product and I have been very happy. ☺It is very helpful that I can access it online from anywhere so that I can log my time. The integration with Clio is wonderful. ☹The logging of time away from my computer could be better. Would love to have the ability to see it all the time away for the day and lot it all at one time.
