Limited Use Cases, I Would Go Elsewhere

2020-10-15

It does not make tracking tasks easy, and managing my teams hours isn't a fun or easy task due to this tool

Pros

It also CAN do task management and gantt chart tracking.

Cons

The tool doesn't make it easy to track retainers, actions, tasks, projects, etc.

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.

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.

Love the task assignment feature.

2018-11-23

The program has worked flawlessly since we got it, and on the rare occasion we got stuck on a feature, their staff was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Pros

This allows for better tracking of project time, and the mobile app gives you the option to do that even if you aren’t in the office.

Cons

As we only needed it for time tracking, we haven’t encountered any negative things to say about this project. There are more features that we just don’t need, so perhaps slim lining the program would be helpful to make it more sleek-looking.

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.

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.

FunctionFox for Architects

2018-08-30

My billing is generally by the hour, and so the "timer" feature is extremely helpful when working on multiple projects in a day.

Pros

FunctionFox has definitely improved my organizing skills with its to do lists and progress reports.

Cons

Still waiting for Gantt charts. Then I think it will be perfect.

Professional Time Tracking in a Straight-Forward App

2019-04-25

It had integration limitations and was not as flexible as we needed it to be, but for many, it is likely the right tool.

Pros

FunctionFox allows you to set up different account and projects within those accounts to help separate your time into tasks and items of your own choosing.

Cons

We also needed a tool that would be double as a task manager.

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.

Great time management software

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.

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.

A Time Tracking Tool for Smaller Teams

2018-12-09

Pros

Function fox does what is needed, which is help teams and individuals track time across functions/activities/clients.

Cons

Function Fox is not the best for larger teams as it can get really messy in terms of selecting the right categories or task types. This makes it a bit difficult to use and then harder to get the team to adopt the platform.

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.

Great tool for managing time and projects

2018-12-21

Pros

I use FunctionFox primarily for time tracking as I use another tool for more day-to-day project management.

Cons

No specific cons - although I think they're lacking in the project management department, I don't use FunctionFox for that so it's not an issue.
