Read time: 8 minutes

We at Insightful are excited to announce a major advancement in our analytics capabilities: the introduction of enhanced categorization through tags. 

The enhancement is a direct result of our ongoing commitment to enriching your data's value through deeper customization. 

This enhanced version of categorization offers an unmatched opportunity to customize your reporting experience and monitor employee productivity

The feature aligns effortlessly with your distinct business objectives, ensuring that each tag and each report resonates more closely with your specific analytical needs.

User-Centric Reporting with Precision & Insight

The cornerstone of this new release is the user-centric approach to reporting. Slated for release in Q1, it provides users with an unparalleled depth of control in shaping their reports. 

With the ability to define what each tag represents, you can now unveil layers of insights, enhancing the granularity and relevance of your data analysis. 

For instance, by applying a 'Focus Time' tag, you will soon be able to generate reports that reveal in-depth how much dedicated time is spent on specific apps and websites, offering insights that were not previously accessible in your employment tracking system.

Visual Ease with Color-Coding

To enhance the user experience further, we’ve introduced color-coding as an efficient method for rapid identification and analysis. This visual element not only simplifies data interpretation but also adds an aesthetic layer to your analytical process, making it more intuitive and less time-consuming to derive actionable insights.

Personalized Grouping for Customized Data Analysis

Personalized grouping is a game-changer in data interpretation and remote worker monitoring. 

This feature allows you to group and filter applications and websites based on your unique preferences, augmenting the applicability and precision of the data. This customization means that your analytics will now be more aligned with your specific business practices and requirements.

Ready to explore some examples of how to leverage custom tags for your organization?

Custom Tags to Guide More Strategic Task Prioritization 

An example of a custom tag with great potential could be a tag that identifies core work. This tag could be used by administrators to mark the essential tools and platforms that are critical to their company's daily operations. 

A stand-out advantage of such a tag would be the ability to minimize unnecessary distractions and ensure efforts are concentrated on primary tasks. By identifying certain tools and activities as core work, managers can better guide employees on how to prioritize essential job responsibilities (even when multitasking).

The strategic use of the core work tag would actively enhance productivity. The tag would allow more advanced remote tracking, offering a clear view of how employees allocate their time, and allowing managers to make data-driven decisions about workload distribution. This could help clarify work priorities within the team, encouraging transparent communication and a cohesive workflow.

The core work tag example is just one of many possible valuable tools for administrators, offering a systematic and data-driven method to streamline tasks, maintain focus, and elevate overall productivity within the workplace.




Custom Tags to Understand & Eliminate Distractions


A custom tag to identify distractions is another great example of an extremely useful grouping. Such a tag could be used to sort websites and applications that have the potential to distract employees from their work. 

The true value of this tag would shine in dynamic workplaces where the line between work-related activities and idle time is often blurred, helping managers identify how to coach employees on improving time management and productivity in remote and hybrid environments.

A distraction-identifying tag can also offer a comprehensive understanding of employee engagement by allowing managers to discern patterns in how each team member interacts with different platforms. Armed with this insightful data, businesses could preempt the excessive usage of non-essential sites and apps with more targeted monitoring interventions.

Looking ahead to the third release, a distraction-focused tag could evolve even further than standard remote worker tracking software. The upcoming enhancement would allow users to generate detailed reports that delve into the specifics of time spent on these categorized distractions.

A Custom Tag for Harmonizing Professional Development within the Workflow

A 'learning' tag is another possible customization that could allow organizations to tag resources used for employee development and training. 

This could facilitate a balance between ongoing learning and the immediate demands of work, ensuring that professional development is integrated into the workflow without overshadowing critical tasks.

Such a tag could be a strategic asset that offers profound insights into the learning patterns of the workforce, such as time spent on training and development. By leveraging these insights, managers are empowered to make informed decisions, ensuring all learning tools are used to their full potential and workflows are not interrupted.

It could be a catalyst for both individual employee development and overall organizational productivity.

A Custom Tag for Elevating Efficiency & Strategic Planning

Finally, a custom tag used to track the use of tools and platforms for meetings could be a major asset. This could enable organizations to assess the time spent in meetings and use the data to optimize their duration and frequency in the future.

The goal would be to see that meetings are efficient and contribute effectively to business goals, without taking excessive time away from individual work.

The impact of such a tag would go beyond ensuring meetings are purposeful and time-efficient. By optimizing meeting durations, employees could gain more time for focused, individual work, fostering a balanced and productive workflow. 

These examples of custom tags demonstrate the flexibility of our categorization feature, allowing organizations to align the platform's capabilities with their unique operational needs and priorities. 

The possibilities for custom tags are endless. With the help of these tags, companies can expect to see a workspace that’s more in tune with their specific requirements, leading to enhanced operational efficiency and productivity.

Custom Tags: Where Efficiency Meets Creativity

The upcoming enhanced categorization feature marks a breakthrough in Insightful's commitment to enriching data value. This advanced version offers unparalleled customization and insightful insight, aligning seamlessly with distinct business objectives and providing a depth of control for shaping reports (coming soon in Q1!). 

With user-centric reporting, personalized grouping, and an array of customizable tags, organizations will gain the power to tailor the platform to their unique needs. This flexibility will help streamline tasks maintain focus, enhance productivity, and most importantly create a thriving workspace finely tuned to specific requirements.
