Latest Features & Updates: API improvements, New Permissions, and more


Here are a few more recent and as-yet-unannounced improvements to Time Doctor:

Company owners can give anyone access to the Payroll feature and/or the Billing page

Some of you have requested the ability to allow people other than the company owner to have access to Payroll Feature and to the Billing page.  So now when the company owner visits their Manage Users page and edits any user, they’ll see an option to give that user access to the Payroll or Billing pages for the account.  Here’s how it looks on the Manage Users page:

Admins can control whether Managers can see screenshots

On the Company Settings page, Admins can now give Managers the ability to view screenshots of the people they manage.  By default, Managers are unable to see any screenshots except their own.  Here’s what the setting looks like:

API: New Documentation, and “Write” capability

We recently revamped the API documentation to make it prettier and easier to understand.

You can fine the API documentation at

And in case you hadn’t heard already, the API can now handle write as well as read operations – so you can extract data from Time Doctor, or add in your own projects & tasks through the API and assign them to the appropriate people.

Green bars on the dashboard will take you to screenshots

Click any of the green bars on the dashboard, and they’ll now take you directly to the screenshots for the selected person and date range.

  • Over 100 other minor fixes and improvements.

Changes that are coming soon:

  • The ability for admins to create project-level tasks which are available to everyone in the project
  • An overhaul of the Required Work Hours page that will give you a lot more flexibility when setting work schedules
  • An overhaul of the Absent  & Late feature that will allow more customization & will be more user friendly
  • Integration with Payoneer (for payroll feature)

Latest Features & Improvements: Webcam Shots & More


Here are the updates that we’ve made to Time Doctor so far this month:

New feature: Webcam Shots

Due to popular demand, we’ve added webcam shots as an optional feature.  Webcam shots are deactivated by default, but admins can activate webcam shots for any user on their Advanced Settings page.

When turned on, this feature will take a webcam shot every 10 minutes.  When an admin turns on webcam shots for a user, that user will see a notification in their Time Doctor desktop application informing them that webcam shots have been activated.

Webcam shots will appear on the screenshots page, and can be deleted in the same way that screenshots can be deleted.  When they’re deleted, the associated work time is also removed.  Here’s what the screenshots page looks like when webcam shots are turned on:
