“Very handy software for time tracking”

OverallAs a consultant supporting several projects, timely is a very easy to use and quick way to keep track on time spent on each activity. I have it on my PC, MAC and iPhone, and logging time is done in seconds. It synchronises instantly across platforms provided they are online. I also use Move on my iPhone and I really look forward to have these two functions come together shortly.
ProsEasy to use and always available.
ConsNone so far.
Recommendations to other buyersFor a consultant in my business, for some projects, payment is agreed as a fixed price for supporting the whole project from start to end, i.e. when I delivered my report I am paid the full agreed amount. I then use the "Money budget" with an hourly rate to see progress. I then follow the percentage bar to see how I am doing. Sometimes I am done at 70% and then I am very satisfied. 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. A third variant is that I have a retainer fee as a basis, and in addition, I get paid by the hour or days for activities agreed being above the agreed basic retainer fee. I would therefore like to see a third option in addition to the "time budget" and "money budget". On the money budget, I put the retainer fee and insert an hourly rate. Then I can see if i am paid fairly, i.e. at the end of the month. to I end around 100% with the hours spent. I guess I am after a third option or a combination of the two. Now it is either or, Time or money. Now I solve this by splitting up the projects into the retainer portion and the over-and-above portion. I hope this was not too complicated.

“Ideal time tracking software for my business”

OverallI can't imagine finding a better fit for me and the way I work. Timely makes time-tracking painless and effortless.
ProsIt's quick to get up and running with Timely, entering clients and projects is a breeze. Being able to add a time or money budget is handy for those fixed-price projects - and Timely will send you notifications when you've reached a budget milestone (50 %, 80% and 100% of the allocated budget). An essential feature for me is being able to track my timings across different devices - if I need to work on a project at home, all my timings from work are synced. I can also log in to my timesheets via a web browser, should I need to. Creating reports at the end of the month when I need to do my invoicing is also a pleasure. Timely can export to Excel or PDF. I don't use the "Memory" feature of Timely much, but it's been very useful on those occasions that I've forgotten to start a timer and need to refer back to what I was doing during that period.
ConsNo significant cons spring to mind. Being able to save more project colours as defaults would be handy, as I use a single colour for each client (based on their brand colours) which means opening a previous project to copy the colour, and then pasting that in for the new project.

“Things I Didn't Know When I Started Freelancing”

OverallI started freelancing and had been tracking my hours on scratch paper and Notes files on my phone (it sounds so obviously stupid that I did that, but I hated time trackers from my agency days. I tended to forget to use them and then had to mentally reconstruct my days). It was making my life hectic. I put off invoicing until the last second because it was stressful and I felt guilty - like I had made my hours up. Even if I knew what client I did work for, I almost never remembered to write down what I did. Timely has tools built in to help me remember to track hours, to remember what I worked on, even days later. I also volunteer and hadn't been tracking my non-billable time until Timely. Now I can see how I'm splitting my days. It's made me a better estimator for future work; I never see my own estimates and think "wow, that's way too high a number. I should lower that," because now I have it documented, including the stuff I forget to factor in, like meetings and emails. I recommend this to everyone, especially visual people. It looks just like a calendar interface so there's very little learning curve. Timely is beautiful, easy, and --dare I say it -- rewarding to use.
ProsThe visual, colorful, easy to use interface. The integration with Rescue Time, which helps me remember what I did.
ConsNone. I work in UI/UX and I have no constructive crtiticism for Timely. Well done.
Recommendations to other buyersIf Timely handled invoicing Or integrated with that I would save even more time, but keep doing your one thing well. It's better than a bloated product.

“Timely is an essential tool for my translation business”

ProsWorking as a freelance translator, I needed a tool to plan my daily schedule and I came across Timely. It's the best planning tool I've found so far. At a single glance, I can know if my schedule for the week/day is already full or if I can keep accepting new assignments. I also started tracking the time I spent on each of my projects, which allowed me to realise just how little time I spent actually working because ultimately my day was full of distractions. Timely has allowed me not only to keep track of my ongoing and future projects, but also to optimize my work time and it does so beautifully: it is very easy to use and visually appealing. There are tons of extra features that I don't use, such as automatic time tracking and project budgeting, but it's still perfect for what I need. Couldn't work without it!
ConsMaybe, just maybe, it's a little "too large" for my needs, so to keep things minimal, a plan with just the basic features would be welcome.

“Perfect for entrepreneurs”

OverallTimely has provided me with a simple and professional tool for tracking time that is cost effective and efficient. I don't need to spend a lot of time preparing back up for invoices because Timely produces a professional report that is flexible enough to be adapted to the needs of each client. It saves me so much time and is a great value for the money.
ProsTimely is so easy to use and very intuitive. It is so simple to set up new clients and projects and the connection to my calendar is great. My favorite feature is the reporting function that creates professional looking billing summaries that support invoicing. (I continue to use the old reporting format as that works best for me). One unexpected benefit is how much it has helped me track how I'm using my time. Having the dashboard visual that shows how my hours have been allocated and when has been very helpful for time management.
ConsIt's so minor but the range in colors for projects is pretty limited.
