Comments: My billing is generally by the hour, and so the "timer" feature is extremely helpful when working on multiple projects in a day. I also like that I can set up email reminders if I forget to fill out my timesheet.

Pros: I have a small but growing architecture practice. I tried several project management and timekeeping and accounting programs before finding FunctionFox. I have been using it for a little over a year now. It allows me to do everything in one place, from job estimating to invoicing. The most important feature I was looking for, and was having trouble finding elsewhere, was an "resource availability" function, that would keep me from scheduling myself or my employees for 180 hours/week. FunctionFox has definitely improved my organizing skills with its to do lists and progress reports. The customer service has been excellent, and the interface is easy to use and clearly organized. I recommend it for any firm, but especially small start ups.

Cons: Still waiting for Gantt charts. Then I think it will be perfect. They are used extensively in construction scheduling, and I would like to have the same format when scheduling the design.

Comments: For several years, I have used FunctionFox every day, to record my time and manage my projects. I found setup really simple, and day-to-day use is a cinch - I record my time with FunctionFox's timer, which makes it easy to switch between clients and projects. Generating reports takes seconds, and FunctionFox has let me cut admin time that I used to spend searching through old emails and scribbled notes to do my billing. With FunctionFox, once I've entered my time, I can use the information for loads of things: to create more accurate estimates for similar projects; to track my actual time against my estimates (very useful for keeping clients informed); to create and adjust invoices; and to show clients exactly what I've done for them.

Pros: Since I started using FunctionFox, I've captured significantly more billable hours every month to. I find this program to be simple, flexible and really affordable. Also, customer service is completely free, with a service rep assigned specifically to me. That means I can always talk to someone who understands my business whenever I have a question, as often as I need, completely free. All in all, subscribing to FunctionFox is one of the best business decisions I've made.

Cons: If you're looking for a product with all possible bells and whistles, you may need to keep looking. You can export data from FunctionFox to other programs pretty easily, but accounting features aren't built in.

Love the task assignment feature.

Comments: We love the features of FunctionFox. The program has worked flawlessly since we got it, and on the rare occasion we got stuck on a feature, their staff was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Pros: The best thing about this program is that you can assign tasks to individual employees. This allows for better tracking of project time, and the mobile app gives you the option to do that even if you aren't in the office. The ability to create an unlimited number of clients and projects is an even greater bonus. The emailing of tasks also helps greatly with time management.

Cons: As we only needed it for time tracking, we haven't encountered any negative things to say about this project. There are more features that we just don't need, so perhaps slim lining the program would be helpful to make it more sleek-looking.

Pros: I implemented this software when I owned my own agency of 1 full-time and 2 part-time staff. It helped tremendously to track the time spent on projects and more accurate billing. No more paper time sheets! I always had accurate data when a Client asked "how much time do we have into this". They have great customer service and is fairly reasonable in price even for smaller shops. Reporting is robust. Pretty user-friendly.

Cons: It's missing the Project Management piece. At least in tracking To Do's like Basecamp does. I wish I could have 1 software that does both of these things.

Overall: more accurate billing

Pros: As an Account Manager/Office Manager I can't imagine how I would get through my day without FunctionFox. I use the action function weekly to prepare for our Monday traffic meetings and keep this up-to-date throughout the week, so I always know the status of my client projects. Running reports for monthly billing and using the invoicing tool has saved hours of time! The ability to run current client reports as well as reports from archived jobs allows me to see how time was spent, capturing billable time and expenses, and is also a great tool in preparing estimates. As easy as it is to use, if you do need help, the customer service at FunctionFox is unbeatable! Signing up for FunctionFox is one decision you absolutely won't regret.

Cons: Really there is nothing I don't like about FunctionFox it's a great product and fulfills the requirements I use it for.

Recommendations to other buyers: Choose FunctionFox - you won't regret your choice. It's so easy and if you have a problem there is always someone available to help you

Pros: We love this software, it's quick, easy and very cost effective. We easily input our data into it, the fields are all editable so is bespoke to us. We haven't had to ask for much support as the software is so easy to use, but when we did the help was fast, helpful and friendly. Function Fox has made the studio run far more efficiently, team members can book jobs in quickly and time sheets are super fast. The retainer option has been really useful too, we can also report on staff productivity and ensure timesheets are being filled out.

Cons: Having worked with the software for a few months I cannot find any flaws with it, we researched many CRM software solutions and most were too expensive or too complex for our needs, Function Fox gives us the option to have a basic CRM system with add-ons available if we want to expand features.

Comments: We have used FunctionFox for time and expense tracking for over 15 years. I am an early adopter and have been blown away by their consistent customer service. Their team of great people support this solid product.

Pros: Great UI, very intuitive for designers and account people. Timesheets are painless and now our expenses don't slip through the cracks. Absolutely pays for itself. Everything an ad agency or design firm needs!

Cons: Can't think of anything. Whenever there was an issue, they have listened to our suggests and continue to improve the product.

Pros: The timekeeping tools. Love the way it interacts with the Client, Project, Task and the ability to edit.

Cons: I've had to disengage the hourly rate recording because very often we adjust that when reporting and invoicing to clients. Therefore we haven't figured out a way to invoice directly from the software. Also, I wish Outlook calendar could somehow be linked to the Function Fox calendar.

Overall: We absolutely love using Function Fox. It's quickly become a habit and we find that our workflow is more accurately tracked and therefore we have a better handle on capturing all time spent for invoicing as well as a monitor for how we allocate our time! Personally, I love clocking out for the day and seeing my billable hour total. Makes me feel very productive and efficient. Also for retainer clients, it's very effective in generating the monthly report; easily documenting and validating time spent. I highly recommend this online tool to agencies of all sizes. We jumped right into using it and it took no time at all to learn. It's very easy and user-friendly. It's a game changer and we feel much more in control and profitable as a result.

Sherry Bruck, President, Harquin Creative Group

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't overthink it. Just jump in and add your current clients and projects and start using it.

Pros: Very user-friendly, easy to use. Allows for flexibility in choosing reports to print/save/share. Flexibility also in going back to add in hours on a day when you might have forgotten them. Terrific customer support - first in the "getting started" tutorial/hand-holding, to any follow up questions.

Cons: There is really nothing to "not like", from my experience with FunctionFox. I've been using it for about two years, and have had no negative experiences with it.

Overall: Ease of time tracking multiple tasks on multiple projects for multiple clients.

Pros: This system is perfect for small teams to track all of their projects, create schedules, and run status reports!

Cons: They recently made an update and removed a key feature for our team. There is a feature called Flink where we were able to send emails regarding the project to anyone. Since the entire department doesnt have access this was a fantastic feature that was taken away and they definitely need to bring it back. Our files our too large to upload to the system so for our teams use not having that easy email feature causes more work.

Pros: FunctionFox has a great ability to slice and dice information on timed tasks once they are captured. I also have really enjoyed the email reminders on days when you don't log time. Overall, it seems to work consistently, once everything is set up.

Cons: User interface is confusing for most new users. A lot of the information shows on the lower half of the screen which is non-intuitive and creates confusion. The setup can be a little tedious and integrations with other tools (such as ticketing systems, salesforce) would be valuable.

Overall: Tracks time and makes it easy for people to log their hours. Produces higher quality reports than other tools. Has built in intelligence to detect start and end dates of projects.

Pros: The site is easy to use, and after a couple of months, it cut my billing time down to a couple of hours. The ability to quickly show a client a list of billing actives listed by date, demonstates how the time was spent and has emilinated billing adjustments.

Cons: Like any new system it took a short period of adjustment, but the learning curve is minimal. I have not had any negatives .

Pros: I was excited to find FunctionFox designed for creatives, I had been searching for time tracking and project management suited to my work flow and set up. I can customize projects and tasks to clients, build teams, invoice and run reports to see which tasks are taking the most time or if we need to readjust a project budget. When I wanted to do something and couldn't figure it out, their customer service was prompt and friendly. I have been using FunctionFox for 2 years, it is an essential tool that makes managing staff and clients easier, and I love the new look!

Cons: I had always thought their interface was a bit tired, and its funny how that can make you feel... but the new design is awesome

Recommendations to other buyers: There are lots of options, finding one that aligns with your company project depth is important. When I freelanced and had smaller clients, simple was better all around. Now I need something that can organize and track more detail.

Pros: Interface, capabilities, options for customization, user-friendly (particularly the "to-do" lists)

Cons: The ONLY "complaint" I have is that it's not super clear where to click to customize the "To-Do" list. Once Shane pointed it out, we're all clear.

Overall: As a newly hired Production Supervisor I was on the hunt for scheduling software to meet the needs of a growing design department. After reviewing dozens of options I decided on Function Fox and our entire team is LOVING it!

Shane Sihota, our FF Account Manager is a gem! I cannot speak highly enough about Shane and the entire experience. Any questions I have are answered quickly and Shane always jumps at any opportunity to make MY day easier! This day in age, it's almost surprising to come across someone so upbeat and positive!

I've recommended FF to everyone I know in a Project Management roll. FF far exceeds other software options. The capabilities are robust but the interface is clean and user-friendly. As new designers join our team I'm able to get them setup and trained within a day. The personal "To-Do" lists are incredibly effective in managing everyone's daily schedule. We went from chaos to controlled organization in a couple of weeks!

Recommendations to other buyers: GET IT!

Pros: The software is pretty easy to navigate through and use on a daily basis. Its a great platform that includes rates, customers, job numbers, time tracker, to-do-list, reports, calendar, etc. Very pleased with this service.

Overall: For many months I was looking for a project management solution, trying multiple products, over 20, and none of the products had everything I was looking for until I stumbled upon FunctionFox. I signed up for the trial service and while I was navigating through to figure out if it was the correct solution, one of their advisor, Isaac, gave me a call, just to thank me for signing up and see if they could be of any assistant. Of course I did, and we began a walk through of the service. Needless to say at the end of the call I was hooked and use FunctionFox to this day.

Recommendations to other buyers: Definitely give FunctionFox a solid go! The staff there are very open to questions, comments and upgrade suggestions. And most importantly they are real people that take time to make sure you are satisfied with their product. The sense I got from their advisor was FunctionFox is not just some random product to make money, but it is a way of life for them to help creatives succeed in their own businesses.

This is a good time keeping software for those who are in marketing, but it could be improved.

Pros: When I started at Keystone Click, BrightPod was their PM software for web development...not the right platform for the agency, as: -Projects were being delivered late and over budget -Resources were consistently over allocated -UX was too busy/confusing -Reports were confusing/lacking -Workflows (templates) didn't work for us -Accountability in getting work done within scope/budget and on time did not exist I researched other platforms and narrowed it down to three: FunctionFox, Function Point, and Paprika. In the end, we determined FunctionFox was the best solution, and it's made my job so much easier. Within 3 months projects were on-time/under budget, and I could not have turn things around so quickly without FunctionFox!!!

Cons: The only thing I wish FunctionFox had was a way to manage scope creep/change orders similar to how Function Point does

Recommendations to other buyers: Do your due diligence to make sure it meets your needs. There are other platforms, but none do what FunctionFox does at their price point!

Pros: The best part about this software is tracking your hours via timesheet. If you're good at managing your time, you can just input the hours you've worked on a project or simply hit a timer and it will track your hours until you've turned the timer off. Also love the actions within projects, meaning more people can work seamlessly within 1 project at the same time.

Cons: It can be quite intimidating at first, so you will definitely need someone more experienced to teach you how to use the software. The search option is great but when clicking on projects that are older, it doesn't take you to the project itself, but back to your actions & assignments (could be a bug on my end).

Comments: As a creative, FunctionFox makes time sheets as painless as possible. As a producer and project manager, instant access to every invoice, expense, supplier, project scope and description, is absolutely invaluable. Imagine: Quoting without darts! Estimates without any ballparks!

Pros: I can use FunctionFox simply - timesheets and expense tracking and it's light and easy to use and has a very short learning curve. But if I want to dig in at any time, it's way ahead of me with all kinds of features. The customer service is - get this - actual humans who care, who really know their product, who get to know you, and who aren't happy until you're happy. Lots of app makers have neglected any meaningful idea of true Customer Service - FunctionFox exemplifies best practices.

Cons: Not many that I can think of - especially after the redesign!

Comments: I used to manually track my time for each job, but when I started using FunctionFox and it's handy stopwatch feature, I was amazed at how much extra time I was actually spending on projects. This new information allowed me to better estimate jobs and accurately bill my clients. Accurate billing brought more financial stability to my small business. It pays for itself, keeps me organized and I love the new rebranded user interface too!

Pros: The design is strong and aesthetically pleasing along with easy-to-use intuitive features. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Customer service is phenomenal! Best time-tracking software I've used, hands down.

Cons: No complaints to report at this time.

Great proclaim to help me stay on track.

Pros: The nice thing about FunctionFox is that it is simple to use and does a good job with tracking projects. The built in function that allows email messages to be sent to people working on projects is a great feature.

Cons: The software seemed a little over the top. Many of the available functions seemed kind of unnecessary and just cluttered the space. That would be my only complaint, but perhaps there is a market where the additional functions are used.

I Love FunctionFox!

Comments: I'm a huge fan of FunctionFox. As a Production/Traffic Manager in a busy little shop it keeps me organized and on top of things. I've been using it faithfully for over nine years and quite frankly, it's made me a better manager. I don't go a day without taking my vitamins and the same goes for FunctionFox. True fact.

Every Monday morning I generate work in progress (WIP) and to do lists for our weekly Production/Traffic meetings. Nothing keeps agency folks more organized and on track than starting their week off on the same page, with the same goals. FuncitonFox helps us do that.

Besides using it for my daily time sheets, I use it to set up meetings, briefings and brainstorming sessions; produce cost reports (past and present); and to reference specs and costs for printing, manufacturing and other hard costs. It gives me the complete picture in one quick and handy place. I also use the calendars to see what's hot for the day or what's not; what needs my immediate attention and what I can push to the side of my desk for the moment.

The best thing about FunctionFox is that I can use it as little or as much as I need on any given day. I'm not a slave to it. It works for me and I love having it in my toolbox. Makes me look better at this job than I probably am. Also a true fact.

Pros: TimeFox is incredibly easy to set up and use, even for timesheet haters like me. As a freelancer, managing time on multiple projects is critical. This program makes estimating new projects, tracking time and expenses, and managing workflow a cinch. I'm capturing time that I used to forget about, and billing takes minutes instead of hours. Also, TimeFox is web-based, so I can access it when I'm on the road. And this company really knows the meaning of customer service. They provide it free, any time I need it, and I get to talk to a real person who actually knows the product. Like I said, indispensable.

Cons: If you're looking for something with all the possible bells and whistles, this might not be for you. TimeFox lets you export data to other programs pretty easily, but accounting features aren't built in

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it before you make the commitment. Everyone claims to make time-tracking simple, but until you use a program, it's hard to tell. TimeFox has a terrific demo that lets you try out the time sheets and play with all the features.

Pros: Simple and easy to use. Outstanding, personalized customer service from real people. As a creative, it makes keeping timesheets as painless as possible. As a producer, it makes tracking previous expenses, suppliers, actual costs, etc. a dream.

Cons: They keep adding (useful!) features and I don't always find time to stay up to date to make sure my current practices couldn't be helped by their upgrades. More me than them, really.

Pros: Ease of use; breadth of functionalities

Cons: Not as flexible with its exports for Quickbooks as I would like. I hate the fact that I have to run out monthly invoices one by one and can't just run out all the projects with time logged in at once.

Overall: After ten years of using in-house designed software, we made the switch to FF at the beginning of the year, and it was relatively painless! All of my staff have commented that it is easy to learn and use, and they were correctly opening/closing new projects and tracking their time within the first week. There are a few functionalities missing which would make it easier for me to run monthly billing reports and export for Quickbooks, but the training staff was very patient and helpful in assisting me in setting up some advance, custom reports to bridge the gap. Our dedicated "on-boarder" support staff person is excellent - responsiveness and support is a big plus here!

Pros: This system is remarkably malleable. My small agency is able to work quite efficiently within its capabilities. While we don't use it to generate quotes, that functionality would likely be useful to many. I came from another agency with a much slower, more primitive timesheet system, and I found myself dragging each month to get my time in by the 30th. Function Fox is super easy, and I find that it takes me no time at all to track my time for each day.

Cons: I haven't run into many cons to using Function Fox, but admittedly, I've only ever worked with one other system, which was WAY worse. I think my only hangup with FF is that the interface can be a little bit clunky, but I can't imagine a time management system that isn't.

Comments: When I started at Keystone Click, BrightPod was their PM software for web development...not the right platform for the agency, as: -Projects were being delivered late and over budget -Resources were consistently over allocated -UX was too busy/confusing -Reports were confusing/lacking -Workflows (templates) didn't work for us -Accountability in getting work done within scope/budget and on time did not exist I researched other platforms and narrowed it down to three: FunctionFox, Function Point, and Paprika. In the end, we determined FunctionFox was the best solution, and it's made my job so much easier. Within 3 months projects were on-time/under budget, and I could not have turn things around so quickly without FunctionFox!!! Their account reps are top notch. They are ALWAYS there when I need them; whether it's for advice on best practices, random questions, or reminding me how to find an employee's availability to work on an urgent request. Some days I don't know what I would do without them!

Comments: For the time being, FunctionFox serves the purpose of keeping our team's time but when we have time we will most likely migrate to a new system. There are so many better options at this price point with more features and benefits.

Pros: We have used this product for over 5 years and it is really easy for employees to understand how to input their time. Their customer service staff is helpful when you ask for something directly.

Cons: Setting up backend organization of clients and projects is a bit confusing and difficult. There aren't very many integrations for communication with other softwares and if there are, it is difficult to get them set up. Updates and added features have to be added to your account from a FunctionFox rep.

Pros: The software is a great value for your money. The features and functionality are easy to use. I like the timesheet, project costing, personnel rate report which is essential because it shows the actual cost of the project, reports advanced feature is also great because you can customized it to your needs, you can easily manage personnel, projects-retainers is also a great feature.

Cons: The invoicing feature is one of my least favorite. I wish the project name shows when you view an invoice or a quote in the list view section. The quotes and invoices cannot be customized within the software, so you just have to export into a pdf and make edits. The software has limited functionality.

Pros: I like how easily I can track my time through the use of the built-in timer / clock. I have used this product for 3 years and I do like the way the interface and design is evolving.

Cons: I wish there was a more intuitive and visual way to view schedules. It's very clunky and they're basically buried. They are not very helpful in a list format and would be much better suited if they could be color coded and interface with a calendar like Google. I don't like that when you do make a change to a schedule it doesn't automatically shift other items around. I keep track of my schedules best by simply speaking with my colleagues and writing on the work order. As far as I'm concerned the current schedule process in time fox is a waste of time. I also dislike that when I change tabs in one job I have to refind it again when the page changes.

Recommendations to other buyers: - Look for the efficiency and accuracy of a schedule. - Can it interface with other platforms that are commonly used? - If you make note of something in one place (like email) will it be recorded? - Overall design and how intuitive the program is to use

Function Fox is soooo bad. It's so out of date except for a reskinned interface.

Pros: The new interface design is really nice.

Cons: Where do I start? The user navigation is confusing, it lacks reporting features available in cheaper software alternatives. There is no time tracking app for the desktop and the mobile apps are seriously out of date.

Overall: I have been using Harvest for five years now and absolutely love it, but was forced to use Function Fox for another company that I contract for. The features and usability of Function Fox are just horrible. It's difficult to navigate through the system, reporting is abysmal as it only gives you an excel sheet to download.

Sorting and filtering is also confusing at best and leaves out important details the list goes on and on. Why pay so much for a POS system? Oh, and did I mention they don't even have a time tracking app for your desktop and their mobile apps are so out of date that they haven't even updated their logo? Seriously, LOL.

I'm not here to tout Harvest as there are other great alternatives, but I only pay $12 per month for one user on Harvest. It's an additional $10 per month per user, then it costs $50 for 5 users per month. Harvest is cheap, has a lot of great features for invoicing, estimating, and reporting, and offers lots of app integrations, PayPal and Stripe payments, and has really good time tracking apps for Mac, iPhone, iPad and Android with additional features for invoicing and tracking reports on the go. I'm a designer, so I really appreciate the time and effort they have gone to in order to make accounting and billing intuitive and fun to use yes it's actually fun to use Harvest.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't use it.

Pros: There are many features I like, but the best way to describe the benefits is the way TimeFox allows me to see and study various projects in so many different views. I can view one project in depth; I can view 3 or 4 projects side by side; or I can few all of my projects from every degree. I also love the timer feature and the estimator tool, as those help to predict costs. Most of all, I love the individual and immediate attention FunctionFox's customer support gives its clients.

Cons: I wish it did give me a way to calculate profits within the estimator tool. I am not sure what purpose the timeline serves, since it is so very small and not really a Gantt chart.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a try, and if you need more information, talk to a current user. I would also ensure that your team or company is disciplined enough to input their hours. This goes for any PM tool, not just TimeFox.

Comments: Function Fox has really been useful for our company. I find the reporting functionality to be top notch, allowing us to deliver timely reports to clients as they need them.

The main limitations with the system and the reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is I find it slightly cumbersome to use. Even though I use it on a daily basis, I still find myself stumbling around trying to find the place I need to be. However I think the new interface will help alleviate a lot of that and am very much looking forward to our company switching over.

Customer service has been spot on. Our rep Daphne has answered questions as they have arisen and all calls with her have been efficient and productive.

In the future, I would like to see the addition of a desktop app to make time tracking easier but overall I am very happy with Function Fox.

Comments: Our agency had been utilizing an package specifically designed for agencies. While it is a great package for large agencies looking to combine everything under one solution (from trafficking to invoicing, to accounting), the solution was more than we needed from a functionality and cost perspective.

After several months of research, product demos and head-to-head evaluation. We selected Function Fox for three key reasons:

- It's functionality covered all of our needs

- It's intuitive design facilitated and easy transition

- It's delivers great value from a cost per user perspective

Function Fox is the perfect solution for a small agency that requires an automated solution for project-based time & material tracking, project estimating, and billing.

Pros: The gentleman from FunctionFox is very very friendly and helpful. Whenever I have a question regarding the app, he always get back to me right away. The product itself , I think, is pretty user friendly. It's pretty straight forward and I would recommend it if you look for a time sheet management app.

Cons: If this app has PTO accrue etc function, it would be great.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think I like functionFox time sheet app a lot, comparing to other app I have tried. If you are looking for an app that simply do the time sheet management, this would be a good choice. It's easy, clear and the report that it generates is great!

Comments: Pros: Incredibly easy to set up and use ' even for timesheet haters like me. As a freelancer, managing time on multiple projects is critical. This program makes estimating new projects, tracking time and expenses, and managing workflow a cinch. I'm capturing time that I used to forget about, and billing takes a fraction of the time it used to. It's web-based, so I can access it when I'm on the road. Also, they provide really good, free, ongoing customer service (from actual people!).

Cons: If you're looking for a product with all possible bells and whistles, this isn't it. You can export data to other programs pretty easily, but accounting features aren't built in.

Overall: For me, it's indispensable ' the best way I've found to manage my time and projects.

Pros: Functionality good. Best thing is that this is super customizable. Whatever you need, they will make happen. Customer service is excellent.

Cons: I think that the color scheme needs to stand out a bit more. The screen is really monotone. It is all grey and white. I think there should be some dark undertones for things to stand out.

Pros: Function Fox is a brilliant product. I needed a strong project management software to manage a team and multiple clients as well as detailed reporting. Function Fox has a beautiful layout that's easy to use and their customer service is amazing.

Cons: I really wanted to love this product because of the amazing bundle of options. Although they offer invoicing as an add-on, they do not integrate with Paypal or allow for automated invoicing which was a deal breaker for me.

Overall: For product quality and customer service I highly recommend.

Comments: I started using TimeFox five years ago when I launched my PR agency and I remember wondering at the time if I would get my money's worth from it. Looking back I can say: I never should have wondered for a second! It's given me the tools to keep track and therefore to bill clients appropriately. The reporting tool alone let's me quickly see where I am in terms of billable hours each month, and now that I have staff, I can review where they are spending their time on projects. In terms of customer support, after three years I was wondering how to run a report in a new way, so I sent a quick e-mail question in. They responded in 10 minutes and walked me through the report set up. It's great knowing I can call on a company like that.

Comments: Function Fox has been a very important part of our business, it helps to organize and assign projects and track time. As we bill clients by the hour, Function Fox makes it very easy to accurately account for all hours and ensure that clients are billed for every hour spent on their account. Additionally, Function Fox allows users to add notes with each time entry allowing the client to see exactly what was done during each hour billed.

Customer services has also been great, our account manager Kate checks in with us frequently to ensure the product is continuing to meet our needs as well as suggesting the use of features we may not be utilizing fully.

Comments: At first it was sort of difficult to go through and get started but once things were off and running this product has been a huge help. There are times I forget to click to start the time but I love the fact that I can go in and add time. In my business often times people will put down a deposit for design. It would be nice to have a feature where I can record that deposit so when it comes time to invoice there would not be a chance of leaving that out or having to keep track of it elsewhere. Not sure how that would pertain to others using this program but for me that would be a HUGE help. Other than that I have no complaints what so ever.

Comments: I used TimeFox years ago and love it but changed because of certain other factors. When I launched my new company I went back to take a look again. Although the interface had changed (improved) I got up and running very quickly on my own but then ran into a few road blocks. Customer support was responsive and helpful. They made it painless. To our company, TF has all the features we need and none that we don't. We really had bad experiences with project management software that tried to do everything and connect to everything. All that does is make adopting it difficult because their are too many features.

Comments: Pros - The time posting process each day works great. I can easily track time and keep up with time posted to different projects/actions. The system is easy to log into and can use the app on my phone.

Cons. - Two people cannot share the same action, without having to enter them separately. Actions cannot be set for the same time every month. For example, if I have a client, and I post on their social media the first week of the month, then I would like to have the action automatically set for the same time every month. I wish there had been a formal training process.

It is so easy to use, we keep track of our time and expenses so efficiently. FunctionFox has really allowed us to focus on the fun part of our jobs ' being creative!

Pros: Simple, clean design, easy to use.

Cons: It doesn't integrate a lot of other pieces of software with it. I believe this product didn't have any connectivity with the offline version of quickbooks to auto create invoices.

Overall: I would say this product is a good start to time tracking for your team. This can give you a lot of productivity information if you look at the reporting regularly.

Comments: I use the timer function on Time Fox. It reminds me of chess players hitting the start stop clock. The nature of my roll of a designer at Brand Iron demands that my attention gets shifted at any given moment. I'm in a habit of hitting the clock button as soon as my efforts get redirected to a new task. Time Fox is a lifesaver for me, its functionality is intuitive and its covers my needs thoroughly. It could perhaps only benefit from a facelift?
