We’d like to introduce you to a new idea we’ve been playing around with for the past few weeks. We want to make RescueTime even easier for discovering interesting insights about your behavior. Today, we’re launching the first version of our comparisons dashboard. It’s a way to quickly understand the differences between your most productive days and your least productive days.
Essentially, it analyzes all the time you have logged over the last 60 days, then ranks your days by your productivity score and splits your time into the top and bottom 30%. Then it averages those buckets to form a composites of your average productive day, and your average unproductive day. You can use the tabs at the top of the report to toggle back and forth between the two states, and see how your activities change.
You can see it for yourself at www.rescuetime.com/comparisons and here’s a video explaining it:
A couple notes about this report:
- Because this report analyzes your past data, it’s only available to people that have logged been active RescueTime users for at least 30 days. If you have just recently signed up, you’ll have to build up a little more data before you can see it.
- This report requires a modern browser. We’ve tested it on the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. Older versions of Internet Explorer will be prompted to install the Google Chrome Frame plugin or upgrade their browser.
We’re pretty excited about it, and we hope you find it useful too. It’s just a first attempt, and we’ll be expanding and improving it over time. One thing we’re working hard on is a way to compare other metrics besides productivity. There are a LOT of possibilities there.
We’d love to get your feedback on this. Is the comparisons report useful for you? Did you learn anything surprising? Is there something else you’d like to see? What types of comparisons would you like to see?
