Easy to use and very functional time tracker that helped me as a freelance worker

2018-07-25

easy time tracking and I can easily export my timesheets and send to clients.

Pros

I like that it's free, and even though it is free, the features are functional and you get everything you need for a basic time tracker with reports that can be exported as a PDF or Excel file. I didn't need to purchase the upgrade because I'm a solo user and the features available for the free version are all I really need. I did have a project where I collaborate with a couple other people and again, even on the free version, I was able to use the workspace/team feature with no problems. It made tracking time within the team easy.

Cons

I don't have any issues with Toggl, and have used this for more than 5 years in my line of work and business. I would probably recommend a setting where you can't edit the entries for members of the team, or for non-owners so that the time tracker is accurate and not manipulated.

A real game changer!

2018-06-22

Pros

I don't even remember how I used to track my time before for my timesheets! Toggl gives me peace of mind.

Cons

The only downside is that I sometimes forget to turn off my time. If there could be some kind of alert periodically to remind me, that would be incredible.

Excellent time tracking tool!

2019-04-17

Our business depends on Toggl for time tracking so we can submit the timesheet to clients with their invoice so they know what we did for them.

Pros

That means you have all the tools needed to show clients the work you did on a timesheet. Our company uses it quite heavily.

Cons

There's no screenshot feature, but that's a double-edged sword. Given that clients never ask for them anyway, it'd be pretty pointless to add that to the software in the first place. However, some people might swear by that feature. Pretty much just nitpicking here.

Excellent free , open-source timekeeping system

2018-03-14

Best time tracking system for a small business, and helps you maintain simple online entries with a powerful timesheet calculator.

Pros

If you are required to manage your time, we all know how much of a pain it is. Enter TOGGL. This free, easy to use and manage app can create easy time entries and have various tags (project, class, dimension, etc) for time entries. Can create custom reports as well which help in reporting

Cons

Does not have much by way of integrations w/ other services, at least so far. Would be great if this has integrations to major ERP and payroll for the accounting and recording parts of timekeeping extended to other areas/organizations in a business.

Use it together with Trello to have a virtual timesheeting system

2019-03-23

We use Toggl in our department to time how long is spent on each task. We have it linked to Trello, meaning that a 'Time with Toggl' button appears next to entries in Trello. When we click it, it starts a new timer entry in Toggl and times how long is spent on the task. We are able to run a report at the end of the week, month, or day, and evaluate how much time and resources have been spent on tasks. We will be continuing to use Toggl as it is a valuable tool.

Pros

I like that it links (with an API?) to Trello, so we have a virtual timesheeting system when they are used together.

Cons

The interface is a little clunky and sometimes I find myself making empty timesheet entries that are logged for a number of hours until I realize the clock is still running.

Great time tracker

2018-04-09

This software allows us to be compliant when we get audited for government grants.

Pros

We've integrated this into our workflow by using it to generate the timesheets for payroll, as well as for client invoice (we bill by the hour).

Cons

The Pro edition is pretty much a requirement for any serious company and we feel it's a little pricy. We did experiment quite a bit with the API, but had limitations (may have been corrected since).

Huge win for efficiency and reflection

2019-01-24

It makes timesheet entry incredibly easy, especially when working on multiple projects.

Pros

Toggl is intuitive, gives good reminders without being intrusive, and provides useful reports that make my work better, faster and higher quality.

Cons

I haven't had any problems with it - a minor annoyance is when features that require the paid plan are easy to accidentally click on from the general, free dashboard.

I'm on the fence

2018-09-25

I just keep forgetting to change the time when I task switch and then I end up doing fudging 15 minute increments on my timesheet.

Pros

This products gives a much more accurate picture of time spent on different tasks than just "remembering later"

Cons

I felt it was kind of cumbersome to set up all my tasks and I rarely remembered to stop the timer if I left for coffee or got sucked into a last minute meeting.

With this software I regained the control of time.

2017-10-13

I got rid of procrastination and gained control over time.

Pros

Thanks to Toggle I could finally forget about timesheets. It does all the calculations for you.

Cons

There were several bugs during software development but now it's ok. At the beginning it takes much time to set up everything (projects, clients, etc.), but later it pays off. The reporting could be more automate (like summary+details) and generate more precise file names. I get lost a sometimes when I try to collect monthly reports from the whole team.

Very handy tool for keeping track of time spent on multiple projects

2019-01-31

I love using Toggl to track my time as a freelancer! My clients appreciate that I can give them an exact breakdown of where my time goes, and it helps me maintain focus on my various projects.

Pros

I especially love: - Toggl's free plan includes enough basic features that you can get a good feel for the software without having to commit - Ability to break down tasks within projects means helps keep timesheets as specific as possible, which my clients appreciate - Chrome extension is very easy to use, and reminds me to track my time whenever I'm online - Autotracker and idle time features are both extremely helpful for holding me accountable + keeping my hours accurate

Cons

In my opinion, Toggl is the best time-tracking software on the market right now. That being said, if I had to list potential future improvements: - As someone that multitasks / hops around between projects pretty regularly, I wish there was a way to run multiple timers at once or otherwise account for this - Mobile app, while a handy offering, isn't as easy to navigate as the desktop application

I just love this simple time tracking tool, it had helped us deal with multiple projects!

2019-03-08

Pros

It has great reporting features, and if you are in search of a tool that helps you send great timesheets, then toggle is the one, no longer you have to worry about using those age-old spreadsheets!

Cons

The customer service is non-existent! You would encounter bugs while switching in between workplaces. The chrome plugin is very buggy! The more entries you add up, the slower the desktop application becomes!

Super easy to use

2018-10-17

Wonderful, no real complaints so far and making the switch to Toggl has been great. We have converted most of our team to Togggl and are excited to bring in some of the integrations that come with paid plans to be able to eliminate some of the admin duties and close some of the cracks we find in communication from time to time.

Pros

I also love sending in such a detailed and good looking timesheet each period, way better than just a csv boring spreadsheet.

Cons

The only thing so far that inconveniences me is the inability to export reports on the Android app. I don't know if that is something that is coming to it eventually, or if that is only available with a different level of plan. But I am 80% of the time mobile and need to send in reports on the go, which isn't too much of a problem that I am always with a laptop. But having to go that extra step does cost me a few minutes here and there. Exporting from mobile would be a huge help.
