From today you should start seeing the new Time Doctor Dashboard in your account. If you don’t see it live in the next few days please contact our support team.
So what’s new?
The biggest change is the ability to view and assign tasks for each of your team members. Select a team member and you can easily view the hours worked, the current top priorities and any recently completed tasks (as well as the task they are currently working on).
If you have a new task, or a change to an existing task, you can now make changes from the dashboard which will update each team members desktop Task Manager. Assigning tasks directly like this has many advantages – primarily that it saves time by avoiding email. As we roll out new design features for the desktop app, users will be able to see when new tasks have been assigned and by who.
From the new dashboard, managers can also see which team members are online, who’s on a break and also view and edit the tasks for users who aren’t online (tasks will sync with the server as soon as they start work).
This is just one of many new features we’ll be launching in the next few months. Next up, time tracking for clients and projects, and a time usage tab which will show you exactly how your staff are spending time on the computer.

With the increase in people working from home, and the creation of a “virtual office” environment, there is also an increase in the need for software designed for the virtual office. Read more…
Time Doctor is still in BETA release – as such, we still don’t have definite price point.
We are thinking to charge $5 per month for individual users and $15-25 per user for organizations. We intend to launch a full version of the product in mid to late 2011 which will contain a number of major enhancements.
We don’t intend to launch the product until we are 100% convinced that it is at least two times better, faster and more useful than any other time management, project management or task management app for organizations.
Additionally, there will also be some discounts available to Beta testers who have provided us feedback and stuck with us during this initial development period.
We are truly committed to making Time Doctor absolutely amazing as a productivity tool – We’re not quite there yet, and we need your ideas and feedback.
