Robert Poor

Excellent tool for small office

2018-12-27

Interactions with the technical support team have been really truly great -- they make it clear that they're listening and are always cheerfully -- and competently -- responsive. This counts for a lot.

Pros

As a contractor paid by the hour, FreshBooks makes it easy for me to track time for multiple clients, gather the accumulated work into invoices, and send the invoices to the clients.

Cons

Before FreshBooks, I used Toggl and really liked Toggl's integration with the Chrome browser.

Especially great for freelancers and self employed

2016-05-20

The accountant login is great, I keep everything in Freshbooks and the accountant can view all the reports she needs. The Toggl integration for syncing billable hours is a time saving when creating hourly invoices.

Rediscovering FreshBooks after several years

2017-08-17

I had used FB several years ago (now called Classic). I liked that interface better, and it seems to have more options / flexibility than FreshBooks New. Admittedly, I need training. It is fairly easy to just start using. I hope I can find some of the settings / adjustments buried somewhere.

Pros

Customer service is great. A rep hopped to when I had a question about electronically importing time entries from other programs / files (csv). Unfortunately, FB doesn't currently have that capability (see Con below). The rep offered to, then timely completed, manual copy and paste of some 100 time entries from a csv file into my FB Account. Kudos!

Cons

No integration with either Toggl or TSheets.

Excellent for time tracking

2016-10-19

I've been using Toggl for several years and consistently recommend it to those who need a simple, easy-to-use but feature-rich time tracker. The combination of website, mobile, and desktop app trackers make it portable and highly functional in any environment. They have a slew of features and integrations that can help automate repeated tasks, and I make thorough use of the reporting feature to keep an eye on productivity and project status.

Pros

It integrates with my billing software (Freshbooks) so I don't need to enter in client information and project information more than once.

Cons

My issues with Toggl are fairly superficial: I wish there were more colors for clients/projects, and I wish the desktop app would work faster when it starts to autofill project information.
