Shared Workspace Metrics

Everything you need to know about visualizing your team's work patterns in a Shared Workspace

Once you have created a Shared Workspace, added the Apps that you wish and got your team onboard, you can start to benefit from working out loud together. There are several places within the Shared Workspace where you can gainer deeper insights into your Team's use of technology.  Let's dive in!

  1. Timeline 
  2. Workspace Metrics
  3. Activities Feed


When you first navigate to your Shared Workspace, you will see a Timeline of all the team members App usage. This is a visual representation of your working patterns over the timeframe you define (hours, days, or weeks). The Timeline has three swim-lanes: Views, Calls, and Calendar.

  • Views: The top lane illustrates your typical activities. Look for patterns that represent specific workflows, distractions, focus time, and healthy breaks & offline activities.
  • Calls: Directly below this swim-lane, visually represents your time spent in Zoom, Slack, and Microsoft Teams calls, huddles, and meetings.
  • Calendar: The bottom lane displays both past and planned calendar entries, facilitating comparison between scheduled events and actually occurrences. 

When Views and Calls overlap, it indicates that the individual is interacting with other tools while on a call. This overlap could signify various scenarios such as screen sharing and presenting, or multitasking with other work tools during a meeting.

The swim-lanes help you contextualize your workday activities, enabling you to identify focused sessions, brief distractions, or multitasking instances.

The Timeline can be used to identify different working patterns within your team and help to shape collaboration.

Data will show for the Apps that each Team Member has accepted to share data from.

Underneath the Metrics, you will see the Apps that are most used by your team. The data you will be given is: the time in calls for each app & the time in each app.

Selecting the Activities tab within the Shared Workspace opens up a list of each of your Team's Activities with their Apps in real time.

In addition to listing individual activities, the Activity stream includes real-time "On a Call" statuses while in a virtual meeting in Slack, Zoom, or Microsoft Teams. In a shared workspace, this status is viewable for anyone on the team. 

Activities helps to give a holistic view of everything that has happened within your Teams Workday. Here you will see the App's that were visited and the duration of each of the sessions.

Shared Workspace Status

You can filter this information by individual and by App. For example, if you were to view Slack, you could see all the activities each team member has had in Slack. If there are many short interactions this may suggest that they have been distracted from focused work.
