4.4/5 (67 reviews)
2,066     1,357

Built especially for small creative businesses, FunctionFox provides a simple time tracking tool and a more complex, full-featured project management app. The software provides managers and stakeholders with multiple reports on all project activity, clients, tasks and personnel. The tool can also be used to compare financial data such as estimates and actual costs, and to see an overview of timelines, productivity and budgets.

FunctionFox can be used by staff members to track the time it takes them to complete tasks with the app's stopwatch timer. They can also use the PM tools to create and view a personal calendar, share files and documents, define timelines and milestones, create to-lists and assign tasks. A project blog with commenting and email alerts can also be set up for further team collaboration. Users can also create invoices, schedule meetings and events with a group calendar, and create contact lists and client profiles.

Great Product!

22/02/2017

After ten years of using in-house designed software, we made the switch to FF at the beginning of the year, and it was relatively painless! All of my staff have commented that it is easy to learn and use, and they were correctly opening/closing new projects and tracking their time within the first week. There are a few functionalities missing which would make it easier for me to run monthly billing reports and export for Quickbooks, but the training staff was very patient and helpful in assisting me in setting up some advance, custom reports to bridge the gap. Our dedicated "on-boarder" support staff person is excellent - responsiveness and support is a big plus here!

Pros

Ease of use; breadth of functionalities

Cons

Not as flexible with its exports for Quickbooks as I would like. I hate the fact that I have to run out monthly invoices one by one and can't just run out all the projects with time logged in at once.

Custom reports let us manage projects well

11/02/2017

Until I see the reports, I am not able to notify or update clients on their project status. Fortunately, I get great reports and visual charts out of this software. Data is formatted well and easy to review.

Pros

Helps with better communication of project status and timeline with the clients.

Below Average Project Management Tool

25/01/2017

I tried Function Fox out for one month and the customer support team was awesome about getting my account up and running. However, the tool is just incredibly lackluster. It is sporadic, all over the place, and really disorganized. There were just a lot of tools available and none of them I really needed. If it was slimmed down and more direct in what it offered by grouping things together, it would be much better. But everything is so closely connected and really gets tedious having to keep navigating through the dashboard to compare information.
