Balances simplicity in time recording with in depth reporting

2018-03-25

Tracking against project time and value targets.

Pros

Toggl integrates with loads of websites - install the chrome extension and just hit the red timer button on many websites to start recording time.

Cons

It gets expensive quickly. API integrations are lacking, we have to double handle many figures.

Time tracking made easy

2016-08-18

Toggl allows our business to track time, add an unlimited number of projects and use Toggle's reporting tools.

Pros

It makes the arduous task of time tracking painless.

Cons

It would be helpful if there was an option to add an hourly notification asking if you're still working on a project.

Recommendations to others considering Toggl

The browser extension is a quick way to start, pause and resume projects without having to open new tabs. It's really great if you're switching between multiple projects throughout the day.

Tracking time made super-easy!

2018-11-20

This tool will let you understand how much time do you need for particular job or task. It is also great asset while reporting to clients.

Pros

I love how Toggl integrates with many other tools to make tracking time effortless.

Cons

Working with multiple spaces can be little confusing - projects are tied to spaces, so you can start tracking time not even knowing it won't be logged into right space and project.

Simple and efficient

2020-03-18

A great tool that I still use to track how long it takes me to complete projects.

Pros

With automatically generated reports and different project classifications, this is a strong tool for freelancing or time management projects.

Cons

The lack of ability in being able to track what software was actually used in the recorded time has lead to me installing an additional plugin for me to track specifically how long I spend on a piece of software.

Reliable Tool for Tracking Time for Clients and Projects

2020-09-03

For my clients who pay me a retainer, I'm able to track my time on specific projects and tasks and ensure that I'm not working too little or too much against the retainer.

Pros

There is a third layer of tracking that helps me identify time spent on specific tasks as part of projects.

Cons

Very occasionally, I will think I've started the timer on a task and it doesn't start, so I'll have to manually enter my time, which is easy to do.

The most reliable tool for time-tracking

2019-09-27

I've been using Toggle to track time when working on multiple projects.

Pros

It's not overloaded with features and the ability to categorize your tasks make it even easier to track your progress when working on multiple projects.

Cons

Not really a con but more of an integration suggestion: would be great if Toggle could work with Siri, Alexa or other similar tools to make time tracking even more mobile.

Good for small scale tracking. Plans are a bit pricey

2019-12-11

Time tracking for smaller internal projects with free plan.

Pros

It is easy to just hit a button and record activity. If you forget, it is easy to input it after the fact.

Cons

We have tried a plan in our company years ago, but the managers didn't see the value.

Solid, basic time tracker

2019-02-27

Pros

Moreover, the new reports are a drastic improvement and help a lot when it comes time to bill.

Cons

Further, sometimes the tracker seems to be "tracking" a project twice, separately, at the same time, which can create two entries for that project.

Very interesting tool to measure your productivity

2019-08-15

That feature becomes more so practical, once you use a paid plan and can really use the reports.

Pros

You can set up a plan what to do and track your achievements as well as time spent on other activities. Later you can easily evaluate your daily time management or lack thereof.

Cons

The tool does what it promises but some features such has a better habit tracking or reporting are missing and you still must rely on another tool if you want to track those similiar types of "happenings".

Overall, Toggl has a lot of tools to offer for tracking and reporting on time spent on tasks.

Pros

I've just started exploring time/task tracking software, and so far, I'm quite impressed by Toggl.

Cons

For just wanting to jump into a project, there are simple tracking options, but getting acquainted with all of the other features has been a larger task that could be a bit more intuitive.

Fantastic Tool For Hourly Projects

2018-08-08

Fantastic, simple usage with great reporting features!

Pros

I love the reporting and that you can easily share projects/see your colleagues' contribution to the same project or task!

Cons

Sometimes I scope out the day in advance (knowing i'll have a meeting at 12 for an hour, for example) but when I open it i again, it won't have saved.

Know What The Team Is Doing

2019-07-19

We needed to have a clear picture on what the development team was spending their time on throughout the week.

Pros

Desktop and mobile app make it easy to access.

Cons

Some users have trouble finding the right task/project to track their time under but the manual edit options help clear that up.

Toogle.. The great tool with one big missing feature..

2019-10-18

But we had always the problem, that the tickets in our ticket system was not automatically trackable.

Pros

* Standalone client that allow to track while offline. * Automatic scanning of application usage in order to provide hints about the work that was done.

Cons

. :( * Missing great integration into project planning tools like asana.

We have been tracking our time for many years

2020-09-09

And helps project managers to plan and achieve realistic timeframes.

Pros

The desktop app is great to use to track your time, task switching and can setup hour intervals with a notice popping up to remind you to track your time..

Cons

The recent colour change to pink/purple is a bit weird on the user interface. But that's just my subjective opinion

One of the best time trackers with some flaws

2018-04-30

Let's me know what I spent my time on, sum the hours up, calculate the projects value.

Pros

- Very intutive - Allows to track time very easily and manually correct it afterwards - Detects idle time and asks how to treat it - Advanced reporting

Cons

- It should do a much better job at integrating tasks tracking and app&websites usage tracking - It's not good at planning things, you need another app for task management - Entering the time manually is tiresome - the app tends to switch back from A.M. to P.M., automatically asumes that the tasks found place on consecutive days - The desktop app has limited usability, for many options you have to use the web-based app - Got much more expensive recently

Simplest time tracking solution that has it all

2018-03-30

Simplicity in tracking time used for different tasks over different projects.

Pros

I've been using this tool for a few years now to track my consulting hours - it allows to quickly add new tasks, accounts and projects and export them to PDF summaries, just what I need and expect from a time tracking software.

Cons

Also I'm missing a more robust integration with JIRA.
