About Harvest

Harvest makes it easy to track time from your desktop, phone, and favorite tools, including Asana, Trello, and Basecamp. It then collates this timesheet data into intuitive, visual reports that make it easy to see what your team is working on, catch projects before they go over budget, and make more intelligent decisions about your business. And if you need to invoice your clients, just create an invoice from your billable time, email it to your client, and get paid online.

Pros: It does what it does and it does it best! Time tracking on projects has never been so easy for our organisation. We have used multiple time trackers, but were never pleased with the wat we neede to register the hours we make for our clients. The mac, windows and iOS/Android apps work great. New projects are available instantly and starting / pausing the time tracker is wonderfully done. Managing the projects, budgets and tasks is really easy and if you like, you can integrate it with Harvest Forecast and plan your team ahead.

Cons: Harvest lacks decent support of monthly retainer 'projects'. It's not a show stopper for us, but it makes us do manual checks of the hours we make for our clients. I would love Harvest Forecast to be part of Harvest by default instead of the invoicing functionalities, since we use other software for that.

Overall: With Harvest we track more hours than we did with other software. It takes the hassle out of the process. Nobody likes to track his of her hours in complicated and time consuming ways and Harvest solves that problem!

Pros: This integrates with the project management system Asana, and you can start your timer within the project that you are working on.

Cons: The one con I have about this product is that sometimes it has glitches and will link in the wrong task to the timer you have been working on.

Pros: Very easy to use and integrates well with Xero, Quickbooks or other backend bookkeeping software. The invoicing system is well done also.

Pros: The desktop app is really useful for tracking time as activities are being completed. The interface is small and doesn't interfere with the workflow. It is flexible so that team members who prefer to use the full browser version are able to do that.

Cons: It would be a nice feature to be able to add certain activities to the time sheet for every day, instead of entering the repeat activities manually.

Comments: As a LIS it is a good system, truthfully the customer service team is the weak link. The more advanced IT help seem to be a lot more knowledgeable with the product.

Pros: Customizable for your practice, they have many good abilities for many reports, and the QC part is very good.

Cons: Customer service are not very knowledgeable, they have to take over your computer hours at times and end up with no resolve.

Pros: (1) User experience is exceptional. Tracking time within projects is extremely intuitive.

(2) Very visual product in terms of forecasted costs on a given project.

(3) Reporting is the best part - gather data based on team members, area of work, date range, etc.

Cons: (1) It appears there are multiple different funnels to get to the same information. These flows make the platform seem convoluted, redundant, and sometimes confusing.

(2) Invoicing UI could be improved. For example, creating and linking invoices to projects follows a seemingly arbitrary rule set.

Overall: Easy time tracking, reporting, and invoicing.

Pros: I love that you can create tasks just for you. In our company we have created our own verbiage and this lets us create tasks just for us. It is so simple to create a new project.

Cons: Creating reports based on the work that was done for the day or for a total project can be a little tricky if you are not really good at computers. It would also be nice if on the mobile app you were reminded of a past time still running or if the project manager was notified by email that there is an employee with a timer still running.

Pros: Harvest has been very helpful for our small business for keeping track of our time and money. It is simple, nicely designed, and was quickly adopted by all of our team.

Cons: We have occasionally found it to be TOO simple, and we are sometimes frustrated by timesheet approval emails being sent to seemingly random members of our team (we are unsure if this is a problem outside of our company).

Harvest is great to use as a time tracking app, especially with its integration with Asana.

Pros: - Integration with Asana (includes the Asana link for the task being tracked)
- Free option (up to 2 projects at a time)
- Downloadable report
- Ease of use
- Time tracking
- Time tracking is also editable, which is great and convenient at times
- Start and end dates for projects

Cons: - Free option only allows up to 2 projects at a time, enough for most people depending on how your tasks/projects are organized, but it'd be nice if it was 3 or 4 starting out.
- Sometimes it'd be nice to be able to reorder tasks in the time tracking section.
- If you start and then stop time tracking for a task in Asana, when you start again later, it adds it as a new time record instead of continuing from the previous time record.

Overall: Time tracking, integration with Asana, and downloadable reports are huge benefits for what I use Harvest for.

Pros: Simple tool to manage project time. It works for any person or agency that needs software to keep track of the time worked.

Harvest easily displays the detail of the time invested and you can generate reports.

Cons: In our case we could not continue to use it since we needed a software that would be integrated with our workflow (which is a bit complicated). Currently we use JIRA to take control of project incidents and although Harvest has a plugin that integrates with JIRA, we were not able to generate reports as we need it.

For teams or agencies that do not require something so specific, I'm sure it should work very well.

Overall: Time tracking, easy reporting. Clean and simple.

Pros: Easy to use on computer & friendly mobile app (for when you forget to stop time after you leave). It is easy to create new projects and log time in an organized fashion. I also like how it prompts you after you have been idle to see if you want to continue to log the time you were away.

Cons: I have the app for Mac and occasionally it will randomly stop timing or the timing will be off by a significant amount. Because of this is I try to just use the website as one source of truth. Additionally, the 'idle' message mentioned above can be annoying when in meetings for example, it would be nice to have some sort of silence or snooze

Pros: They have hands down some of the best support of any SAAS company, and for a very reasonable price tag. I almost always get same-day answers.
The basic features are very simple to use and are getting even more simple. I love that it has simple time tracking and invoicing that just work.

Cons: I wish you could style the invoices more, they look pretty bland. I also wish you could charge credit card fees to the customer automatically when they use a card (this is legal where I live in TN). And accepting e-check would be great, too. But I wouldn't be surprised if they implement some of these features, they've been requested!

Overall: Harvest allows us to easily set up projects, track budgets, and bill clients. No frills, just what you need.

Comments: Harvest is reliable, simple and comes with most of the features and reporting that I need to run my web agency. The integration with Basecamp is essential and the iphone app is a big plus. When it comes to time tracking, the simpler the better otherwise the time won't get recorded. Harvest does an excellent job on the user interface.

Pros: Interface, Ease of use, integrations

Cons: Would like more user permission options and more control over the quickbooks online integration.

Recommendations to other buyers: Record your time in the simplest way possible to start and get more detailed over time as you start to build the habit

Pros: The ease of use. It is very easy to navigate through and track project time to bill our clients. It is also very easy to pull reports to track hourly rates for clients and see how we are year over year. The software makes it easy to track employee time as well and allow us to keep an eye on who is not submitting time sheets properly to ensure accurate billing and time tracking for client profitability.

Cons: When looking up a specific client and adding someone to a certain project it automatically redirects you from the client listings, were are frustrating. Each time you edit one project you have to click projects to bring you back to the listings of every client and it is time consuming and i feel like there could be a much easier way to do this that is less time consuming.

Overall: Easy time tracking for clients and billing.

Pros: I like that it is simple to get started and easy to use. It is so easy, you have to put very little effort into getting started. Billing is straight forward, making estimates is a breeze and the customer service has always been top notch and responsive.

Cons: It is not for project planning, which is something that I think would be very beneficial. Especially for a services based company, I would like to see the ability to create a simple project with associates time lines, budgets and deadlines. They introduced a partner product but it wasn't as intuitive as the time keeping.

Overall: I was able to easily track the time associated with projects and invoice based on those times. It was helpful to have that information not only for the project while it was inaction, but also for archival purposes to be able to estimate future projects. We had several users that contributed to the projects so it was a good tool to see how the project had progressed.

Pros: The chrome extension makes this really easy to track the time you spend working on a particular client. With the click of a button you can select the client you are working on via a dropdown menu and you just hit 'start timer'. When you stop the timer you can also add in some extra details that are great when you're trying to report back on where your time has been spent.

When you log into the desktop version you can view week by week and day by day. You also have access to a dashboard which visually represents where you spent your time.

Cons: Sometimes you leave the timer running - it's really easy to forget that it's running in the background. You don't get a notification until the next morning and so I often have to log back in to correct my time logged.

Overall: Efficient time tracking that doesn't take much time out of your day and clear visibility on where you are spending your time.

I really would like to see stronger reporting, exports, and API integration. The app continues to grow so I suspect new features are always on the way!

Comments: Pros: Harvest is a very simple time sheet tool for project time reporting. Good performance, good user experience, easy to use.

Cons: Harvest has poor reporting capabilities - you cannot see Margin for a project in the reporting. This is a basic functionality of time tracking for project management. When I asked Harvest about this, the customer service agent responded "Unfortunately, there isn't currently a way in Harvest to measure profit margins on projects. I'm sorry about that! While we don't have any plans to add profitability reporting right now, it is a common request we hear"

This makes our company often question the business value of Harvest and the future of Harvest's product. I challenge Harvest's Product Management team to go back to the basics of Product Management and seriously consider features that are "common requests" from your customers AND easy to implement with the data that you already have.

Comments: Imagine you just gave one of your employees a raise. This effectively changes the cost of your employee, as well as the billable rate. In Harvest, once you change the cost, that change also effects all the historical data costs for that employee, thus throwing off all your historical data cost reports. (why the heck would it do that? how the heck do you know what your true costs are for tax purposes if all the historical data is updated too?) After you change the cost, you now need to change the billable rate too,..but wait!...not so easy. Harvest can't handle this basic accounting function either. You essentially have to duplicate your project, adjust the persons billable costs in the duplicate project, and then archive the old project,...meaning you now have 2 project codes for one job. Now imagine if you give several of your employees a raise every year(at different times within the year) and they also work on more than one project at a time,..you could essentially generate 100's of duplicate project codes, for one job. Either I am being fed bad customer support or this software is missing key features that any normal business will need for proper accounting. It frustrates the heck out of me to have this goofy work around!! :( Harvest,..if you are paying attention....update your software to accommodate employee cost and billable rate changes accurately, with an EFFECTIVE DATE and with some sense of simplicity. This forces a ton of manual work that Harvest can't calculate

Comments: Harvest is a great way to easily track hours. You can update and change any items that might need it and you are able to add different options for "what" you are tracking time under.

Pros: I love that I can integrate my Harvest account and Trello. That way I don't have to have as many different tabs open at one time. I also like that it is easy to make any edit you might need to. I love the timer and how easy it is to keep an eye on project budgets!

Cons: We track everything that we do during the day in Harvest. That can get to be a little tedious in making sure everything is correct since there is no way to organize the items outside of the time the timer was started.

Recommendations to other buyers: Harvest is a great tool to use for tracking hours.

Pros: It was great because it was very easy to use. Simple to learn, no training needed, and easy to access.
There is an app so you can track your time on the go.
You can white label it with your own logo so it looks company branded.

Cons: You can only track your time down to one, maybe two levels, so if we wanted to track our time to as more granular level we couldn't.

Overall: We use Harvest as our time tracking tool. It was great because it was very easy to use. Simple to learn, no training needed, and easy to access. There is an app so you can track your time on the go.

Although, you could only track your time down to one, maybe two levels, so if we wanted to track our time to as more granular level we couldn't.

You can white label it with your own logo so it looks company branded as well.

Pros: It offers many tracing tools for time, money, and projects. I like that you can put the app on your browser as well as your phone for easy tracking. It is also helpful for project managers to track projects and resources.

Cons: Sometimes it can be a little clunky and hard to navigate, but otherwise retry good.

Overall: We use harvest to rack estimates, budgets, projects, employee hours, and employee time. It serves as a helpful tool for all of the above.

Comments: We're a small, co-op designed agency that uses Harvest to track its hours. It works really well for us as many of our "employees" are contractors that draft in based on project requirements. It's really easy to use and to generate reports. Highly recommend for smaller companies or individuals that need something simple to track hours.

Comments: Small startups will find it easy to get up and running with Harvest. Expect to start looking for more robust tools immediately upon finding some success.

Pros: Small startups will find it easy to get up and running with Harvest. Expect to start looking for more robust tools immediately upon finding some success.

Cons: Harvest is a dead simple invoicing tool, which means is not a strong accounting tool. The workflow, from billable hours to invoice to recording payment to reports is an easy way to ensure your team is getting paid, but companies who expect growth will very quickly find Harvest lacking. Harvest integrates with a lot of cloud tools, but is missing some of the newer tools out there like Wave.

Recommendations to other buyers: We have found all of our needs satisfied with an alternate, more cost effective solution.

Comments: Does an excellent job of tracking and breaking down billable hours for my work. Subliminally, it also helps to keep me focused and on task because I know that it is being tracked

Pros: I'm able to log in my hours and describe what I have been working on so I don't have to worry about writing it down anywhere. It is extremely easy to use even for nontechnical people they really tried to make the product simple and useful.

Cons: The pricing scheme isn't very flexible for casual freelance developers but for the agency setting it works perfectly.

Pros: Usability is king. We've tried so many other apps. They all look like they're from 1999. Harvest is the tool your employees will actually use.

You can track time from anywhere. Web, desktop, or mobile device. Expenses can be tracked as well.

Once the time is entered into the system, the reports in harvest are visual and actionable. You can create any type of report in Harvest, splicing the time data in the way you need it.

Invoicing is also included. As well as 50+ integrations with project management apps like Basecamp and accounting apps like Quickbooks and Xero.

They are constantly adding new features and these are updated automatically. No need to install, upgrade, or maintain a homegrown solution in house. And so much better than Excel.

Cons: The invoices could be more customizable than they are right now.

The PDF versions of the reports could look a bit better.

Overall: A great time tracking and reporting tool for your team. Harvest has become indispensable at our company. Its streamlined our workflow, allowing us to work on more projects efficiently and operate more closely to our budgetary goals.

Probably one of the best Project Management & Billing Tools

Overall

Comments: Harvest is for me one of the best online billing services that I have seen so far. Everything is so easy when using it! I mainly use it for project management but the billing function is excellent as well. It allows you to manage unlimited projects. You can assign employees and contractors and you can track the time and apply that time to your project.

Pros: It integrates with Basecamp

Cons: At the beginning I found it a little bit too difficult to use, I am not a very technical person.
