    Pros
    I recently started using Harvest and I love it. I love that it just shows up on the top on my Macbook so I can easily add time without going on the website.

    It's quite robust too, so as you grow Harvest is extremely well positioned to grow with you. The ability to track hours for projects or tasks is extremely helpful for those non-total-project invoices.

    Cons
    Sometimes i make a mistake and put 2.5, which is wrong because it means 2hours 50 minutes. I also don't know how it kept inputting off decimal numbers.

    It is a pain to use if you have little random projects that come up frequently because they then have to be separately added to Harvest as their own job by the project manager.

    Notifications can't be configured for a project and time off, missing advances features such as billing.

    Great Time Tracking Software

    Reviewed a month ago

    My overall experience is amazing. You can use timer for time tracking or you can record them later on.

    Pros

    It is amazing software which is easy to use and user friendly. It also integrates with project management softwares like ClickUp.

    Cons

    Some default short cuts interferes with other applications and it gets annoying, but you can change them.

    We Love Harvest

    Reviewed a month ago

    Harvest is great. It has LITERALLY changed the way we work and made our teams much more efficient.

    Pros

    It is SUPER easy to use, and our team is able to track both time and hard costs against our various jobs which makes our staffing and budgeting estimates VERY easy.

    Cons

    There is very little we don't like about Harvest. However, it seems to be set up for service companies who are billing clients. It would be nice to not have to "trick it" some times to meet our corporate needs. Also, it would be nice to have finer levels of control on user permissions. I would like to give team members the ability to go in and see the labor costs and external costs against the job without giving them access to see what each persons billable rate is. (Since we use this in a corporate capacity, these billable rates are tied directly to salary information which - obviously - we don't want to share).

    Big feature list for time & project tracking but pricey

    Reviewed 20 days ago

    Harvest does everything we need and is easy to use. However there's definitely features we don't need or use that we're paying extra for.

    Pros

    Lots of great features and the UI makes Harvest nice to use. It's easy to pull time reports for specific resources and projects.

    Cons

    It's definitely expensive. We are exploring other, more cost-effective solutions in what is now a crowded marketplace.

    Time tracking made easy

    Reviewed a month ago

    I contract for many different companies and need an accurate time tracking software to log hours on multiple projects throughout the day. Harvest accomplishes that and more with a simple start/stop timer next to each project line item. The best part is that you can go back and edit your time in case you left it running or needed to log some unaccounted for hours. Would definitely recommend!

    Pros

    This software is extremely user friendly and easy to deploy. Upon activating my account, I was up and tracking time within minutes. Every aspect was very easy to understand.

    Cons

    I have not found a flaw as of yet, but if I were to suggest anything it would be to have a simple widget in the corner of my screen in which I can easily see where I'm at on logging time without having to minimize or move a window out of the way.
