May 20th, 2020

SoftActivity announces the release of new version 12.2 of SoftActivity Monitor, its leading user monitoring solution helping thousands of organizations improve their employee productivity.

It’s designed to help during the times when many teams transition to remote work. SoftActivity Monitor can be used for monitoring work computers taken off-premise and connected via private network, office workstations in situations when employees connect from home via Remote Desktop or locally, and your Citrix or VMWare VDI infrastructure.

  • fixed: in some rare cases, download-cache folder was growing on the server and taking a lot of hard drive space.
  • fixed: black box on the screen on a monitored computer around the mouse cursor, when users connect to their workstation remotely via RDP.

  • get a daily and monthly email report of users activity. (Previously there was only a weekly report).
    SoftActivity advises customers to schedule reports by email for managers, as the reports are very useful, and can be viewed even on a smartphone without a need to log into the on-premise webapp. See instructions at the bottom.
  • scheduled email reports now include Attendance report. See it in a separate PDF file attached.
  • new reports in Dashboard export to PDF and by email:
    • Top apps for each user;
    • Top websites for each user;
    • Top users by alerts triggered, with a list of top alerts;
