Pros
It's been a blessing to use timely to help me stay on top of tracking my personal hours for work. I also love their business developments and rebranding.
Main benefit of Timely is is the ease of use and how to get your time managed in a beneficial manner. I think Timely came up with a fantastic service that.
Timely is a fantastic service to use. I love their way of management with their system and how they want their users to do the same with their personal lives.
Cons
Other pjojects I end up far beyond 100% and then I guess my planning or efficiency was bad. Other projects pay a retainer fee (normally monthly) calculated based on a forcast/estimate of activites.
Its on the expensive side. A yearner a single user makes it an expense always in danger of cuts for a small business.
I don't think there is anything which i disliked about this product.

Timely app

Reviewed 5 years ago

Timely has helped track timing of projects which has helped quote for new projects. From scheduling and pricing jobs it has be a pleasure using it and has become a key tool for us to use each and every day. Great interface that works great on mobile - on the go and always easy to reference any data or information you require.

Pros

Great interface and ease of use, it has become a really key tool for us for time tracking and scheduling work from start to finish.

Cons

Not many, all I would say now and again updates are released I would just like to see more quicker!

Automate your timesheets with Timely

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

The AI memory feature of Timely is the most awesomest time tracking feature for any consultant who hates timesheeting. It tracks what you do on your computer, your appointments in Google Calendar and your location, so you can fill out your timesheets in a heartbeat. Also the customer service is great! Overall great value for your money.

Cons

It's very hard to come up with something.

Powerful time tracking with a steep learning curve

Reviewed 4 years ago

Timely makes it much easier to recognize potential time-sinks in our business workflow and is most likely going to save us dozens of wasted work hours in the future.

Pros

Timely allows for powerful time tracking that gives incredibly useful insights into how you spend your time while working. The reporting features are also a nice addition and an appreciated helper when working with clients billed by the hour. Beyond that, the automatic tracking just works and is an invaluable addition to any business that has to manage their people's time.

Cons

Timely has a bit of a steep learning curve. You have to learn the UI & its featureset simply by exploring & sticking to the app before you can make use of its extensive featureset in a productive way. More help in getting people up to speed would be a nice addition.

The Search Has Ended!

Reviewed 5 years ago

I needed an accurate way of tracking my time and billing my clients across several different projects. This couldn't be easier. I've tried several different time tracking software programs, including a Google sheets extension, 17hats, Quickbooks, HoursTracker, Tsheets, and a few more. This is by far the best!

Pros

My favorite feature of this software is the Memory app that works with it. This app tracks the software, websites, and programs that I use throughout the workday. If I forget to set the "timer" I can always go back and click on each tracked usage and add it to a project. This also tracks time on your phone, which would also be lost time and lost money otherwise. I have captured so much additional work time that would have been lost otherwise.

Cons

The only thing that I wish, is that I could apply payments to the bills that I run. Also, on the shared weblink of reports, if we could also show individual line items for each project, that would be great. I can only do that through an exported report at this point.

Great Time Tracking Software

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

- The Memory Tracker. I liked the fact that it automatically tracked how long I was on specific websites and desktop applications. As a contractor, this made it easy for me to know how long I worked on a specific task. - It was easy to update work periods with the associated details, like the associated project and other information. - The reporting functionality was great. I could easily use the generated info for invoices and etc.

Cons

- I wish it offered the ability to create an invoice. It would have saved me a lot of time.
