 Harvest for Time Tracking

Harvest is a great way to easily track hours. You can update and change any items that might need it and you are able to add different options for "what" you are tracking time under.

Most critical review

 A great product to get recording time quickly.

Harvest is a dead simple invoicing tool, which means is not a strong accounting tool. The workflow, from billable hours to invoice to recording payment to reports is an easy way to ensure your team is getting paid, but companies who expect growth will very quickly find Harvest lacking. Harvest ...

Harvest Time Tracking

26/01/2017

We use this company wide for 16 employees and it works great. We have been using the software for several years now and helps us improve efficiencies and manage profitability for our clients.

Pros

Ease of use

Cons

The ability to add new projects and toggling back and forth from screens for reporting is a pain and not the easiest method. I think this website feature could be tweaked.

Simple time tracking tool - good UX, but no bells and whistles

24/01/2017

Pros: Harvest is a very simple time sheet tool for project time reporting. Good performance, good user experience, easy to use. Cons: Harvest has poor reporting capabilities - you cannot see Margin for a project in the reporting. This is a basic functionality of time tracking for project management. When I asked Harvest about this, the customer service agent responded "Unfortunately, there isn't currently a way in Harvest to measure profit margins on projects. I'm sorry about that! While we don't have any plans to add profitability reporting right now, it is a common request we hear" This makes our company often question the business value of Harvest and the future of Harvest's product. I challenge Harvest's Product Management team to go back to the basics of Product Management and seriously consider features that are "common requests" from your customers AND easy to implement with the data that you already have.

As an self employed consultant, this is my favorite software!

06/01/2017

It's literally the best. It makes time tracking, invoicing and income reports THE EASIEST. It also makes managing a team and payroll hours a breeze. I think it's a tad on the expensive side for teams but it's definitely worth it for individuals.

Harvest App is a must on our workflow. It's very easy to use and provides a good UI. The only con I would mention is pricing, which seems a little expensive per user basis.

Missing basic accounting methods and doesn't account for basic business practices

29/12/2016

Imagine you just gave one of your employees a raise. This effectively changes the cost of your employee, as well as the billable rate. In Harvest, once you change the cost, that change also effects all the historical data costs for that employee, thus throwing off all your historical data cost reports. (why the heck would it do that? how the heck do you know what your true costs are for tax purposes if all the historical data is updated too?) After you change the cost, you now need to change the billable rate too,..but wait!...not so easy. Harvest can't handle this basic accounting function either. You essentially have to duplicate your project, adjust the persons billable costs in the duplicate project, and then archive the old project,...meaning you now have 2 project codes for one job. Now imagine if you give several of your employees a raise every year(at different times within the year) and they also work on more than one project at a time,..you could essentially generate 100's of duplicate project codes, for one job. Either I am being fed bad customer support or this software is missing key features that any normal business will need for proper accounting. It frustrates the heck out of me to have this goofy work around!! :( Harvest,..if you are paying attention....update your software to accommodate employee cost and billable rate changes accurately, with an EFFECTIVE DATE and with some sense of simplicity. This forces a ton of manual work that Harvest can't calculate

Harvest for Time Tracking

15/12/2016

Harvest is a great way to easily track hours. You can update and change any items that might need it and you are able to add different options for "what" you are tracking time under.

Pros

I love that I can integrate my Harvest account and Trello. That way I don't have to have as many different tabs open at one time. I also like that it is easy to make any edit you might need to. I love the timer and how easy it is to keep an eye on project budgets!

Cons

We track everything that we do during the day in Harvest. That can get to be a little tedious in making sure everything is correct since there is no way to organize the items outside of the time the timer was started.

Harvest Time Tracking

13/12/2016

We use Harvest as our time tracking tool. It was great because it was very easy to use. Simple to learn, no training needed, and easy to access. There is an app so you can track your time on the go. Although, you could only track your time down to one, maybe two levels, so if we wanted to track our time to as more granular level we couldn't. You can white label it with your own logo so it looks company branded as well.
