Creative Service Manager Review

Pros

Timekeeping - It makes reporting easier to collect and share with clients.

Cons

No calendar glance - gantt chart of projects so it's impossible to realistically plan out multiple projects.

Recommendations to others considering FunctionFox

The file size for upload is small so they will have to live elsewhere. The calendar does not integrate with google. You can not make forms such as POs and invoices. Very rigid - look elsewhere.

Great for agencies

2016-04-08

Pros

I was excited to find FunctionFox designed for creatives, I had been searching for time tracking and project management suited to my work flow and set up.

Cons

I had always thought their interface was a bit tired, and its funny how that can make you feel... but the new design is awesome

There are lots of options, finding one that aligns with your company project depth is important. When I freelanced and had smaller clients, simple was better all around. Now I need something that can organize and track more detail.

Everything works, it's easy, and even kind of fun

2017-08-10

Ease of time tracking multiple tasks on multiple projects for multiple clients.

Pros

Allows for flexibility in choosing reports to print/save/share.

Cons

There is really nothing to "not like", from my experience with FunctionFox. I've been using it for about two years, and have had no negative experiences with it.

Great Software to keep track of hours and projects

2017-11-17

Pros

We have used this program for a few years now and have found it very easy to track progress on projects, log hours, and make sure that our office is running as efficiently as possible.

Cons

Adding gantt charts for project planning would be great, but overall this program fits our needs quite well.

Function Fox is soooo bad. It's so out of date except for a reskinned interface.

2016-09-27

Oh, and did I mention they don't even have a time tracking app for your desktop and their mobile apps are so out of date that they haven't even updated their logo?

Pros

The new interface design is really nice.

Cons

There is no time tracking app for the desktop and the mobile apps are seriously out of date.

A little bit of a learning curve but the end result was well worth the effort!

2017-05-25

Saving hours and hours of reporting/management time for tracking budgets and job status under one umbrella of software.

Pros

It keeps track of projects under a retainer and alerts via email when retainers are meeting a certain criteria....very helpful especially when time gets away from us very quickly.

Cons

Slight hang whenever adding things to the calendar but other than that, there are alot of ways to get to the same place but with time and patience, it's workable.

Great product with tons of features

2018-09-06

Pros

The best part about this software is tracking your hours via timesheet. If you're good at managing your time, you can just input the hours you've worked on a project or simply hit a timer and it will track your hours until you've turned the timer off.

Cons

The search option is great but when clicking on projects that are older, it doesn't take you to the project itself, but back to your actions & assignments (could be a bug on my end).

Great time management software

2018-05-10

Great time tracking/management software.

Pros

We use this to track time for 15 employees and never had a problem.

Cons

Because this is web based it sometimes locks up or we can't access it if our internet is out. A very minor problem that rarely happens.

Lynda Lyons

TimeFox user for approximately 3 years

2017-08-15

My company was better able to track where I spent my time/how much of my time was spent on specific projects.

Pros

The software is really easy to navigate, and they have continued to provide updates to make it even easier to use from a user perspective

Cons

I wish there was an app to download onto the computer to make it easier to capture timer and reminders, as the biggest fault of mine is remembering to input the time

Give it a try, and if you need more information, talk to a current user. I would also ensure that your team or company is disciplined enough to input their hours. This goes for any PM tool, not just TimeFox.

It's a Game Changer

2017-01-19

Also for retainer clients, it's very effective in generating the monthly report; easily documenting and validating time spent.

Pros

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.

Helps to Manage Time Spent on Client Projects

2018-05-14

It's reasonably priced, easy to use and improves our billing, which helps not only our company, but gives our clients the assurance that we are billing appropriately and accurately.

Pros

This product keeps track of all of my notes on my clients' projects.

Cons

This product is not accessible when the internet is down. It would be great to have a resident version on my computer when internet is out.

Good software for tracking

2018-08-04

Pros

The built in function that allows email messages to be sent to people working on projects is a great feature.

Cons

The software seemed a little over the top. Many of the available functions seemed kind of unnecessary and just cluttered the space. That would be my only complaint, but perhaps there is a market where the additional functions are used.
