Pros: - Let's me plan out my entire week - both meetings and tasks - to ensure I accomplish important tasks

- Integrations with Todoist and Google Calendar are very good.

- In particular with Todoist, imported tasks carry both the project and label making it easy for me to import tasks and have them automatically organized.

- Having both calendar and task import allows me to set up all of my activities for each working day

- Being able to drag only the calendar events and tasks that I want to allocate to a day is very useful

- It is really important to me to be able to not only track time for tasks, but also the estimate the time in advance so I can allocate important tasks to my plan for each day. I feel this feature sets hourstack apart from other similar time tracking applications which is one of the most important reasons that I chose to use this software every day.

- The reporting feature is really easy to use and provide useful daily and weekly review information

- In reports, I really like seeing planned vs actual times - it helps me improved my estimations.

- Usability overall is really good. The ability to set up events and tasks on a day is very easy as is using the timer functions.

Cons: - The cost for getting the reports feature is pretty high for me (but I paid it anyway because it is useful)

- I wish there were more integrations available

Overall: Planning my time for each day - allocating time for each meeting and task and then tracking it as the day goes by. This lets me ensure I get important tasks done because they are prioritized and visible. It also lets me see how I use my time each day and each week - to make productivity improvements and see how good my estimates are. I use the integrations to Google calendar and Todoist to provide the source of my events and tasks. Because the integration is really good with Todoist in particular, it saves me a lot of setup and processing time each week.

Pros: track your time by project and by "work-type" (with labels). Easy to use interface that allows for maximum flexibility in how you designate your projects, labels, etc. Drag-and-drop works nicely.

Most importantly, the reporting really helps highlight how you spend your time, keep track of yourself or your team's "real time spent" on projects, etc.

Cons: The only thing I can remotely complain about is the week-based interface, where you need to "rollover" open items to the next week, then disperse from there. No big deal, just adds an extra step.

Overall: improved my efficiency, keeps me on track during the day, allows me to better plan my work and also improves pricing for services that require time-spent.

Easy to use, efficient, effective.

Pros: The integrations and the reporting. I am able to pull data from my Google Calendar and Asana task list for one consolidated view of events. I also enjoy the tagging and project associations with Asana. I am able to generate reports of what projects consume most of my time.

Cons: I am unable to easily generate repeated meetings. I can use the template feature, but I have not had time to demo it. If we could make a task repeatable, it would reduce the administrative time by 50%

Overall: Consistent planning of meetings and tasks across two calendaring platforms - Google Calendar and Asana. Accurate reporting of resource utilization per project

HourStack is a nice tool to keep track on your time. Could use some more functionalities though.

Pros: Quite easy to use and get started. The simplicity of the features insure you don't get lost! Perfect for the users tracking their time.

Cons: I feel it's missing some features for the administrators. Archiving and unarchiving is a bit clunky, could be nice to sort by client.

Pros: I like that it can use different sources for the tasks, so one can combine e.g. Asana tasks and Outlook appointments.

Cons: It can be more visually appealing (have different colours and sections for different type of tasks, so it's more intuitive.

HourStack has improved my time/task management!

Pros: Easy to use. The Graphical interface is very intuitive and shows the status of all ongoing projects.

Cons: I have not done well with creating good reporting. It has not been worth moving it to others in our company so I have not yet taken advantage of the team concept.

Pros: We love being able to take tasks created in Asana, drop them into our weekly schedule, and keep track of time spent on each task.

Cons: I almost wish Asana would buy out Hourstack so we could do it all with one application. Otherwise, it's amazing!
