I would like to see the bars of hourly usage have some kind of scale associated with them. It's hard to tell how many minutes each bar represents. All I can see is when usage is highest relative to other time slots.

Hi John,
    Thanks for the post! The time chart is currently meant to be a guide to show the partners what time of day the person they're holding accountable has the highest Internet traffic. In theory, this could help narrow down 'problem periods' or show if someone is frequently online at an inappropriate time. Currently, we don't track how long a user is actually online, because that number is extraordinarily difficult to narrow down. If, for instance, someone was on youtube.com listening to music for four hours while they were writing a paper, it would look the same as if someone had browsed youtube.com for three minutes, but didn't close the page out before starting their four hour paper, which didn't require the Internet. Because the page is still open, it would appear that they're online when they really aren't browsing, so the length of time spent browsing can't be reported with enough accuracy to do so.

I hope that helps!
Samantha
