  "description": "<p>Contains the supplementary material for the paper &quot;Design Recommendations for Self-Monitoring in the Workplace: Studies in Software Development&quot; submitted to CSCW&#39;18. All contents are explained in the file README.txt.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Abstract:</strong><br>\nOne way to improve the productivity of knowledge workers is to increase their self-awareness about productivity at work through self-monitoring. Yet, little is known about expectations of, the experience with and the impact of self-monitoring in the workplace. To address this gap, we studied software developers, as one community of knowledge workers. We used an iterative, feedback-driven development approach (N=20) and a survey (N=413) to infer design elements for workplace self-monitoring, which we then implemented as a technology probe called WorkAnalytics. We field-tested these design elements during a three-week study with software development professionals (N=43). Based on the results of the field study, we present design recommendations for self-monitoring in the workplace, such as using experience sampling to increase the awareness about work and to create richer insights, the need for a large variety of different metrics to retrospect about work, and that actionable insights, enriched with benchmarking data from co-workers, are likely needed to foster productive behavior change at work.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Source Code:</strong></p>\n\n<p>The source code of WorkAnalytics can be found on <strong><a href=\"https://github.com/sealuzh/PersonalAnalytics\">GitHub</a></strong> (under the original name PersonalAnalytics). WorkAnalytics was built with Microsoft&#39;s Dot.Net framework in C# and can be used on the Windows 7, 8 and 10 operating system.</p>",
