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.

Pros

Easy to customize for different users; affordable; time input can use a watch or manual input; client reports are very easy to run, and can be broken down by task

Cons

I pin the program to my browser. I have to refresh it each time I open the browser or the time isn't recorded correctly. I would also like a desktop app for Windows.

FunctionFox helps with managing project billing and helps to create an invoice as well. Our team logs their time and the invoice can come out of this application.

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.

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.

It's a Game Changer

19/01/2017

We absolutely love using Function Fox. It's quickly become a habit and we find that our workflow is more accurately tracked and therefore we have a better handle on capturing all time spent for invoicing as well as a monitor for how we allocate our time! Personally, I love clocking out for the day and seeing my billable hour total. Makes me feel very productive and efficient. Also for retainer clients, it's very effective in generating the monthly report; easily documenting and validating time spent. I highly recommend this online tool to agencies of all sizes. We jumped right into using it and it took no time at all to learn. It¿s very easy and user-friendly. It's a game changer and we feel much more in control and profitable as a result. Sherry Bruck, President, Harquin Creative Group

Pros

The timekeeping tools. Love the way it interacts with the Client, Project, Task and the ability to edit.

Cons

I've had to disengage the hourly rate recording because very often we adjust that when reporting and invoicing to clients. Therefore we haven't figured out a way to invoice directly from the software. Also, I wish Outlook calendar could somehow be linked to the Function Fox calendar.

Very Basic

12/12/2016

Incredibly overpriced for what you get. This is a VERY basic project manager with only minimal functionality. Their website leads you to believe it's a complex suite that offers a lot. Not the case.

We just needed time-keeping software and some accountability for our time. This software gave us the option of clocking in and out, and there was a memo field that we can use to keep a record of what we did.
