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.

Pros: Harvest enables our team to keep track of all of our billing. We rely on Harvest daily for the most recent information about projects, clients, and job status. We wouldn't be able to do our jobs well without it!

Cons: As a beginner, all of the features may seem overwhelming. Do not worry! They're intuitive, organized, and easy to use.

Pros: It's super easy for our team to track and manage project hours. For freelancers and small teams, it's a no-brainer decision if you need to track time. The app, web extension and easy to use website make it super easy to get people into the habbit of tracking time. Stable software.

Cons: The subscription fees are steep when you have a larger team. The integrations are decent enough. The reporting is clunky and not as sophisticated as it should be for the price point. I always seem to have to export to excel to get the data points I need.

Overall: Insight into how we are doing on projects and better billing for our hourly projects.

Comments: With its ease of use and clean UI that is very easy to navigate, I do recommend anyone looking for a good time-tracking app to try this out with the free trial.

Pros: Easy-enough interface. With the time budget input I can easily input the allotted times each project. My team members can see these and those assigned to the tasks can budget their time accordingly for each task/project to keep work within budget. And the total time worked seen on the time entries for the week is great too as it's real time so there's no need to manually add the times. We're using Harvest together with a project management software and it works for us.

Cons: Sometimes team members add or start the Harvest app and the times worked doesn't show on the team management platform we use unless the time was started within the integrated platform. So the team and our client who checks in there cannot see any time worked from Harvest unless they check on harvest directly. Otherwise, this is a very good time-tracking tool.

Pros: It feels that a lot thinking is put in designing this product - the creators made it very easy to start and to use. Very handy feature of exporting in Excel format.

Cons: This product has a lot more features then the similar tool, but frankly all we needed was a simple tracking tool.

Overall: Excellent time tracking

Pros: This is a must have app for software houses.

After initial setup it helps with:
- billing the client like a pro
- transparency with the client
- keep tracking of utilization of the devs
- maintain records of works done

Cons: Some learning curve required. Also some habit needs to be acquired.
After around 2 weeks teams acquired habit and remember to use time tracker correctly with issue tracker (tickets/jobs numbers).

Overall: - Transparency in settlements with clients,
- Transparency in pay for employees

Pros: I use the free version since I don't have a lot of freelance clients and it does everything I need. I like that I can just go in and create an invoice instantly, or I can track my time throughout a project when the pay is hourly (not project based) and create an invoice based on the time totals. I also like that they let you upload your personal logo and they pull it into the invoice. I think the invoice is also set up very clearly.

Cons: When you set up a project in Harvest, you are automatically the project manager and I cannot figure out how to make myself the designer and have my hours charged accordingly. I also like if you create an invoice, then have to add additional hours worked because the client asked for more edits at the end, the total time spent is not automatically updated in the invoice like it was in the first draft of the invoice and I cannot figure out how to make this happen. The software could be organized better to where you can click and edit things in-line, instead of flipping from page to page to page.

Overall: Invoices for freelance work.

Comments: We like the Orange and White - I know its petty, but in a world of grey-ed out infinitesimally small typeface UIs, Harvest is blunt and to-the-point. After all, who needs Team Members making errors with your TIME!

Pros: The most important factor is Ease of Use and Harvest shines, the second is its integration with 80 of the top of the line of today's work tools. There are tons of features - we use Forecast and find it invaluable for Team Leaders to scope out their week's work-load and delegate. Thirdly, their customer support is brilliant - no muss, no fuss. The added bonus is that adjusting time at task once the timer has been closed is easy, and did I mention they send a friendly reminder when you've left a timer running? Oh Yes - we do that sometimes too!

Cons: It's hard to think of a really thorny issue - these guys have worked everything together slowly over the years. It's a a balanced appraoch - the Forecast Add-On is slowly expanding and deepening and there will no doubt be features added that a user would like, for example more zoom in and out to break down to week and day. That is about it really - this is solid Dev-Product, not some rushed-out-to-get-Trials company.

Pros: I love that you can start and stop the clock when you're working on projects. Previously I used Quickbooks and had to enter my time after I finished a project, or keep track of the time and add it to the project later. Harvest's functionality allows me to keep better track of my time.

Cons: It would be nice to have a feature where you can request access to projects. Other than that, I have no cons for Harvest.

Overall: Easily track time, review time sheets and time spent on projects.

Pros: Definitely ease of use, ease of updating, and ease of history review of your time spent on different projects and customers.

Cons: Fails to curb the behavior most people have of not tracking their time till it's time for submission (once a week). So aside from the super diligent folks, there weren't useful reminder features to get you to use Harvest once a day or more like it's meant to be used. This provides pretty inaccurate data for billing for time.

Pros: Harvest has everything that a small business owner would need to tracking the time spent by employees on projects. Harvest works well for consulting firms that need an easy way to track time against projects, but to also track time against various types of projects (e.g. fixed fee, hourly, time and materials, etc.). It can handle everything that you need, and can also connect with CRMs and other systems.

Cons: Harvest itself is a great application. It is easy to use and setup. However, the views for time entry can be hard to understand (specifically the weekly view) because users can capture hours but not include the descriptions.

Pros: Time tracking is super easy to incorporate into my daily work routine. There are also plenty of other features such as expense tracking that I am yet to try out, but I see great potential in.

Cons: The interface could be made smoother, and sometimes the app is slow to load. There is still an element of manual tracking involved and I'm looking for how to integrate this better with my business administration.

Overall: Time tracking is the major benefit for me, and I haven't found better software for this feature yet. It's important for me to measure jobs based on time so that I can reflect on my overall workload and pricing structure.

Pros: Harvest is incredibly easy to use, and doesn't try to be more than it is. It is perfect for tracking time (the iPhone app is great, too, as it allows you to start and stop time on the go) and expenses, and conducting billing. It also has a surprisingly great reporting section, which is helpful for understanding your own productivity and opportunities. Harvest is also wonderfully customizable to fit your office's individual needs.

Cons: This is so nitpicky, but that is because Harvest is so great, and has so little to improve upon: I wish there were multiple pre-set messages you can send. The current system allows for a thank you message and a "balance due" message. Our office, like many law firms, I imagine, has two balance due messages: money due for work performed, and money due to maintain a required trust deposit. Currently we have to manually change this. Not at all a deal breaker, but it would be a very welcome update in the future.

Cons: I think that would be better if Harvest has a app on desktop to play and resume the time, but in general it's good

Pros: I like that Harvest is available wherever I am, whether it be desktop or mobile, it is accessible. It is easy to add time as well track time live.

Cons: The UI could be a bit more modern, but it doesn't bother me too much. Personally, I would flatten everything and get rid of the gradients but it is a minimal concern.

Pros: Obviously, no one likes logging time either in their daily workload or with specific projects. The main thing you want when it comes to this trivial task is that it is simple, quick, and can tell you a lot from just a little. Harvest does just that and provides a very easy to use platform that makes time tracking more enjoyable than it ought to be!

Cons: Somewhat limited functionality in regards to reporting and could use more dashboard customization. Overall, the program provides just enough; however, there could definitely be more attention paid to updates and increased visibility.

Pros: It¿s incredibly intuitive and easy to understand. I was able to pick it up and customize it in a few minutes for my own freelancing, and have a few bookkeeping clients that use it for employee time tracking and invoicing. The invoices sync nicely to QuickBooks Online and look good when you send them to customers. The time tracking is decently intuitive and easy to set up.

Cons: We wanted to use Harvest at my firm, but the time tracking doesn¿t sync the way we need it to with our firm¿s idiosyncrasies. We were able to set up TSheets the way we needed to, which is not really a knock on Harvest; Harvest¿s biggest selling point is how easy it is to use out of the box. That means it¿s a little less flexible and customizable than other things, but honestly I think most people would find it worth the money.

Harvest mad time-tracking for our team so much easier no matter where you were.

Pros: I like the ease of this application and that it includes a phone application. The site is easy to pull up instant personal and other employee reports too.

Cons: I wish the analytics went deeper to create more customized reports for individuals and teams. We have to pull team analytics manually to regularly check how billable we are. If we could do more from the phone app that would be more convenient as well.

Pros: Users love that they can track their time from anywhere. This is a huge step up from the local legacy system. Time tracking is easy to enter, which is nice because logging time is generally the last thing you want to do.

Cons: It would be nice if you could manage the approval process for certain teams. For instance certain employee timesheets should go to the department manager, not the project manager.

Pros: I like that this software is extremely user friendly. You only have to train someone one time for them to understand entering time correctly.

Cons: I sometimes have trouble reading budget bars. It seems odd that the overbudget projects red bar seems to eat back over the original budget. Visually, I think it makes sense to have the budget used up and then have the red extend past the budget bar indicating you are over budget instead of coming back and eating the blue bar up.

Overall: Easy time tracking and project budget visuals. This software integrates with our task list making tracking a breeze.

Pros: Love that it has an integration with Asana, makes it easy to track time, and when looking back at reports we can see where time was being spent, and how much it cost. In Asana, you can add time right to a task, and then it will appear in Harvest where you can see your total time for the week/month/year, and make changes if necessary.

Cons: If you need to clock time that isn't part of a task it's hard to just create something and add time. (This might be on the company's settings as well) Otherwise a great product, and will definitely continue to use.

Overall: Track time in an organized, and truster manner.

Pros: I use this tool every day to track my time when I'm doing anything for a client. The browser extension makes it quick and easy to select the project and record the hours against it. When you log in you can see how much time you've spent that week / month and download reports for the client if required. The whole team uses this and it's been really easy to get everyone set up and using it.

Cons: If you make a mistake when logging time using the extension you need to log into the interface and correct it - which can be time-consuming. It's also very easy to forget to turn the timer off so you can easily log extra time. However, they do send you an email notification to remind you about this so it's relatively easy to correct.

Pros: So overall I'm not a fan. That said, documenting expenses is the best I've ever seen in Harvest. It's really well done and simple. Nice and clean, get your photos, get your monies and go. Big fan.

That is where my love affair ends with this app.

From an administrative point, maybe there are incredible advantages over other offerings. The world may have never experienced such a revolutionary piece of software and I, in turn, am a simpleton; stuck in a world of misunderstanding.

Cons: If you write a app which tracks hourly time and tries to put it into buckets for easy expensing, the time-tracking app should be simple for the multitude of non-admin users. Simply put, it's cumbersome and annoying.... and I say that because someone is going to take stronger language less seriously.

Forget the fact that you have to enter in time _Daily_. When I say daily, I don't mean that you click on the day, you do the thing and save. I mean that it shows you one day per page at a time. No calendar to quickly go through a week, no monthly review where you can quickly fill in gaps. One page == one day. You can bring stuff over from the last-entered day, but the hours aren't filled in... just the buckets. This leads to an incredibly slow, painful, and frankly uninteresting experience. For a bunch of users who want to do their job instead of fiddling around with tracking how long they've done their job, asking them to use Harvest is basically asking them to make none of their time billable unless threatened with homelessness. It's incredibly painful to use.

To be sure, I'm not a fan of time-tracking apps anyway. I akin them to asking your employees to lie to you and giving them a form in which to do it... but Harvest makes the fun of lying to your employer the low-light of your day. It's not fair.

Overall: I personally get no benefits from this software. I'm not a fan.

Pros: Harvest tracks time. No more, no less. That's a beauty of it. Name your task and click start. It's that easy. You can quickly edit you task title and adjust your time. I also think the reports are helpful. It's nice to see where you've spent most of your time. I've tried a few competitors and they just try too hard. It took so long to start tracking that I needed a separate tracker just for my time tracker! Harvest integrates with a lot of project management softwares as well.

Cons: I don't particularly care for the expenses portion. But that's just because I don't often request expenses. I can't really speak to it's functionality.

Overall: No fuss, just simple time tracking. It makes me more productive.

Pros: I've used Harvest for years and I can't imagine switching to another tool. It's by far the easiest, best tool for agencies who work on multiple projects with multiple budgets. Being able to visualise your margins and where your team is spending their time is an absolute game changer. The invoices are attractive and always send reliable. The integrated payment options are intuitive and simple.

Cons: It's a bit more expensive than other tools but if you're using its full functionality it's absolutely worth it.

I'd like to see more flexibility around budgeting and retainers. It has definitely gotten better with new support for fixed-fee budgets, but I would really like to see recurring retainers handled better. We currently create a new project every month for our clients on retainer, which works but is a little tedious.

Overall: It made visualising our project budgets and margins dramatically easier, so we know where our time and money are going.

Pros: One of the things I¿ve discovered from doing freelance work is that I was highly underestimating the time it actually took me to do things. Whether it¿s something you¿ve done before, or a brand new project, managing your time can be tricky¿especially when working from home. Harvest allows you to track your time per project and per task. This can be incredibly helpful when you¿re doing a few different tasks within the same project or for the same client. Not only will this tool help you better track your time, it will also keep you more organized. It even allows you to create invoices directly in the app.

Cons: You can only track one task at a time, so for those who like to have multiple timers going, this may not be the best tool for you.

Pros: The reporting visuals and dashboard are fantastic, letting you dig deep down into reviewing time tracking metrics for your team; also easy to track time according to your preference (on the fly or retrospectively).

Cons: We integrate Harvest with Trello and the way it brings in default categories/projects and tasks is frustrating (it's very easy to track time to the wrong project). Also many of our team members have struggled with getting the app to work properly (I couldn't). Finally, while Harvest is a good time tracking tool, it's not worth the price point, at the agency level anyway.

Cons: At one time I tried to use the Mac time tracking app. I ran into synchronization issues between the 4 computers that I use regularly. I don't hold that against Harvest, and maybe it's been fixed by now. But I'm really happy with the web interface, so that's adequate for me.

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: - 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: It is easy to use and understand. Very self-explanatory! I also like that there is an app that you can use from your desktop.

Overall: It is great at keeping up with and organizing my time sheet. I also enjoy the reminders for when I forget to turn off the timer. It is a great reminder to complete my time sheet. I also like that it works well with other softwares.

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: The best feature is the timesheet sismple to use and follow from the desktop and the mobile app.

Also the reports, with numerous filters and the configurable invoicing templates

Cons: i use it about a year and i really miss new features, also there is no way to manage multiple companies.

Overall: online invoice and timesheet.

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: I love the simplicity of Harvest. There aren't a lot of frills and unnecessary bells and whistles. You track your time, apply it to a project and that's pretty much it.

Overall: Time tracking is super easy for employees. I love the expenses feature as well. The phone app makes it so easy to add an expense, take a photo of the receipt and submit it for reimbursement. No need to mess with scanning, cropping and uploading images!

Cons: The isn't anything on TryHarvest that I can of that I'd want improved as the current features are well thought out.

Overall: Tracking hours on projects and clients became more seamless.

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.

Great for timekeeping, estimating and invoicing for a small service or product based business.

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: I like that I can create an estimate, turn it into an invoice, it synchs with QuickBooks and everything is just easy.

Cons: I wish it had the ability to do a partial payment request. Maybe it does and I just can't figure it out, but basically if my consulting clients are paying 50% up front and 50% upon completion, I would like the functionality to do so.

Overall: Ease in writing estimates and converting them into invoices.

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.

Comments: Our entire team relies on Harvest to track time on a number of active projects and tasks. The application is very easy to use from both the administrator standpoint (add users, projects, and tasks) and equally simple to use from the end-user perspective. 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
