A nice solution to track time instantly

2018-12-14

Pros

Toggle is really simple to use and it focuses on one thing which makes it a really valuable and useful tool.

Cons

Focusing on one simple thing like time tracking means limited functionality in other areas, like employee scheduling, invoicing, etc.

Time tracking for myself and employees

Pros

Fairly easy to use interface that is free for small teams. Not much a learning curve which is nice for onboarding new team members.

Cons

Poor customer support that is focused on company bottom line instead of customer experience. Toggl will automatically roll you into a new full year of service without an opportunity to cancel.

a very functionally rich piece of time management software

2018-12-31

Pros

- It is solely dedicated to time management, so the time tracking capabilities are very fleshed out - the free service has many important functions, and the layout is quick and easy to manage

Cons

- because it is so niche, it is missing some features that are tangentially related to time tracking, such as scheduling

Sophisticated time tracking

2019-01-10

Pros

Very simple to use while including some advanced reporting options under the hood. Breaking down hours by projects and clients takes a few clicks. The Chrome plugin integrates Toggl with Todoist, which makes for a very simple but powerful combination.

Cons

On-boarding took a lot of time and effort, but this is probably the same for all time tracking software.

Toggl used to be useful. Now, I just use And.co

2019-04-01

There used to be a reason to use Toggl. Now, just use AND.CO and thank me later

Pros

- offers time tracking in a fairly easy to use interface.

Cons

- Expensive for what little it offers in the way of features - The interface is confusing for many of the time tracking features - There are TONS of free clones of what little value this actually provides - Doesn't provide extended functionality like invoicing, contract creation, etc that free competitors like and.co do provide

Excellent Time Tracking tool

2018-02-16

Easy to use and effortless time tracking.

Pros

It's easy to use and does what you'd expect in a time tracker. Clean interface and a few clicks and you're on your way.

Cons

Nothing glaring. Would like the continue function to offer a choice setting as sometimes I forget which client I'd doing work for and need to go back and edit.

Toggl is by far the easiest time tracker I've tried. Been using it for a few years now.

2017-08-08

It is my one and only time tracking software.

Pros

Once your projects are setup it's a breeze to track everything. And the reports are really eye opening to how I spend my time.

Cons

I'm currently using the free version because the paid versions do not offer any features that would benefit me personally. Paid versions are mostly features for larger teams.

Simple and easy time tracking

2017-11-17

quick and easy time tracking with reasonable reporting features.

Pros

There is no large learning curve, you can jump straight in and use it without having to spend excessive time figuring out the use interface. Allows you to quickly and easily enter manual time if you forget to hit the stop button.

Cons

The reports are locked down on the free version and see a little clunky. The exported CSV data wasn't as easy to manipulate as I would have liked.

Great for Managers to keep track of your employees

2018-01-17

Pros

You can easily check where and in what the personal has been spending their time, and when was the last time they were using it.

Cons

The time tracking device is sketchy and it's hard to fix it if you ever forget to turn it off, besides that great software.

Helpful for time management and freelance billing

2019-04-11

Toggl has been great for tracking work on specific projects for us, and has been helpful for setting training thresholds for approximately how much time certain tasks should take.

Pros

It's easy to get started with time tracking, and then if you want to take things further with categorizing the time tracking with specific clients or tasks, you can do so.

Cons

I often forget to use it, which is my own fault. There is a reminder feature that will send system notifications every x minutes, but this felt like extreme overkill so I turned it off.

Super simple clean time tracking software, though recent changes make it less useful

2018-04-04

It's the best cloud based time tracking option out there, period.

Pros

It shouldn't be a big deal to start tracking your time, because it's such a minimalistic task, but a lot of time trackers make it a big thing to start a project.

Cons

I don't like the recent changes that don't let you see your history without generating a report. I also wish it integrated with Google Calendar/Outlook and would automatically import meetings/scheduled events and tag them with the correct project (or ask me if they ought to be tagged). I also don't like that it runs until you turn it off, without reminders or updates - like it'll run 8 hours and send me a reminder, but if I ignore that single note, it stops. I would like it to send multiple updates, or have the ability to cut off, and to send me a notification/alert to start it again the next morning, because sometimes I'll forget and come back two days later to find 48 hours tracked to a single project.

Overall pretty good. It's not my favorite time time entry, but it's not the worst

2018-07-10

Pros

It's functional most of the time. I only do time entry (not reporting or anything like that), so maybe I don't have a holistic perspective.

Cons

I don't love using the software, and sometimes log with Toggl or something like that and backfill my entries at the end of the month.
