Good ressource management, time tracking and reporting app

2019-05-24

Gives you the opportunity to actively plan your time beforehand and not only to react like a classic time tracking tool would.

Pros

What makes this app unique is the ability to use it as team planning and ressource management but at the same time to track worked time and have powerful reporting and analytic tools. Very smart interface with a filtering bar on top that lets you easily focus on persons, projects, etc.

Cons

Integrations could be improved (two-way google calendar sync, native toggl sync) and you need some time to get used to the main timeline view (but it works quite well, wenn you do). a way to reflect flexible work hours would be good (i.e. total hour target for a week or month but not per day). a gannt view for quick project planning would also be appreciated.

Useful and easy to use

2021-02-28

Individual project planning improved thanks to Float.

Pros

I like the ability to track the tasks that are assigned to me and at the same time have an overview of all the projects assigned to each resource. I find the log function very useful to record daily the actual tasks and duration.

Cons

It would be useful to have the ability to manage the projects according to the teams and track projects status.

Mostly good interface but some adjustments needed

2020-08-26

Resource management, project scheduling and tracking utilization and efficiency.

Pros

I like that it is fast and relatively fluid to work in. Colour coding is helpful and information is organized in such a way that it's usually clear what you're looking at, even when fairly abstract.

Cons

Input of time for new tasks is quite clunky, at least for the way I schedule time.

Great resource for resource and project management!

2020-07-29

Great overall experience with a simple UI that gets the job done with little to no problems.

Pros

Graphs and charts are easy to read, allowing me to quickly see what projects I'm on and what is coming down the pipeline in the following weeks.

Cons

Time tracking would be a great feature to have that I wish was available, with that float could become even closer to my all-in-one app for project management.

Easy to use for an overview of your week's work

2020-08-14

In solving time management and being able to get a good feel of how much time is dedicated to each project, Float has been great. The interface is uncomplicated and easy to understand.

Pros

It was easy to reassign my time in a day or week to a different project and move projects around.

Cons

Would be good to have feature that zooms out the timeline, enabling a better overview of the month.

Provided resource and capacity management tracking across an ever changing product portfolio.

Pros

The "Reports" feature allows the AGILE product team to track costs seamlessly across the portfolio.

Cons

Updating the "People" resource tab can be a manual process, it breaks the link to the assigned projects and schedule via mass upload.

Look no further if you are searching for a Resource Planning and Team Scheduling app

2019-12-06

We were using Google Sheets to plan our resources, but it was a mess.

Pros

An eagle-eye view of whole resources and team schedules.

Cons

If it was there, we would have used just float for both project management and resource planning/scheduling.

im solving the hiccups of meeting and review scheduling as a agency head it always hard to keep up with the developments of a project so with the help of floats we can have a integrated dairy system that we all have an opinion on based of job urgency and availability.

Pros

The ability to share my dairy to multiple coordinators and operation managers for the easy access of scheduling meetings.

Cons

The lack of time tracking and keeping most ops managers estimate a time, but there is no way to keep track of the amount of time one has actually put into the project.
