Pros: Toggl allows an employer to see all employees' details in one "team" location. The reports are wonderful. Toggl is easy to use. It connects well with other tools like Asana. Very few (if any) glitches/bugs on the important things. Aesthetically clean and easy to navigate. Updates quickly. I receive a weekly report of hours worked, classified by time spent per project. Great tagging system. Allows you to list your clients and projects so that everything stays organized. You can also add a description for any entry. Can easily pick up where you left off without having to re-enter the details of what you're working on. Great searching feature that allows you to see all work done in a time period, by group of employees, with certain key word or with one or multiple tags.

Cons: It would be nice if you could customize the reports more. For example, I would like to print a PDF of a report showing all time entries but not showing who was the user for each entry. There have also been some features that I've struggled to figure out how to navigate or turn off and on. For example, Toggl started creating a new entry every time I paused and resumed instead of resuming the same entry. Once resolved, it has worked great, but it took me a while to figure out what setting was causing the issue.

Overall: We have employees that use the Toggl Chrome extension and others using the desktop version. We also have it on our mobile devices. We run reports for payroll and we run reports to see how much time we spend doing a, b or c, and therefore, we are able to see what profit or loss we accumulated on a specific project, based on our original quote. It's not too complex nor too simple to meet our needs.

Pros: I love that Toggl is quick to set up new projects and get to work. It shouldn't be a big deal to start tracking your time, because it's such a minimalistic task, but a lot of time trackers make it a big thing to start a project. I also like that it's cloud based, so no matter which office I'm working from, it's not a big deal. I like that it takes time entries in various formats (like I can type in 1h, or 60:00, or 1:00 and it understands them all), and I like that it's painless to switch projects (which I do every time a co-worker comes to ask me a question).

Cons: I don't like the recent changes that don't let you see your history without generating a report. I also wish it integrated with Google Calendar/Outlook and would automatically import meetings/scheduled events and tag them with the correct project (or ask me if they ought to be tagged). I also don't like that it runs until you turn it off, without reminders or updates - like it'll run 8 hours and send me a reminder, but if I ignore that single note, it stops. I would like it to send multiple updates, or have the ability to cut off, and to send me a notification/alert to start it again the next morning, because sometimes I'll forget and come back two days later to find 48 hours tracked to a single project.

Overall: It's the best cloud based time tracking option out there, period.

Pros: Ability to track multiple activities - my time spent on marketing my biz, billable time with clients, research hours, learning time, and if I want to track personal time I can. I want to do more with less and tracking hours for billing uses lots of time. This was recommended to me as a time saving organizational tool.

The free version is fairly robust (good details on their website https://toggl.com/feature-list/) and the help files are good. I'm a solopreneur, have started with the free version. It allows Up to 5 team members, Unlimited Projects, Reliable reporting plus 26 other features.

The Starter version is isn't a huge expense and has 41 features compared to 29 features in the free version. The Billable Rates and Rounding in Reports, and Save Reports for easy access are the two features that will be most time-saving for me. Since I'm planning to scale up, it would be useful to track subcontractors' time working on specific projects.

Cons: The app will track lots of different things so it is kind of complicated to set up. I first tried to set Toggl up on my phone as I will be tracking most of my hours on my phone. This wasn't 100% successful as my phone is small, and typing and reading details is a bit tricky. I decided to set it up on my computer then track time there and on my phone depending on where I'm working. I wanted to set up as accurately as possible to utilize it well. It's much easier to open new windows for help files and tutorials while on the computer.

The free version is very useful and I like seeing all my projects and how my time is spread among them. However, I was disappointed that the feature that would streamline my processes the most - creating billable time entries - requires purchasing a paid plan. (I recognize this is smart marketing for the growth of the business.)

Overall: Better organization of workflow in my business and clearer understanding of where I'm making money and losing money!

Pros: In comparing several time-tracking tools, Toggl ended up being the clear winner.

Toggl has an interface that looks nice and is user friendly.

When trying to track the time I spend working on a project, it is imperative that the process of the logging the time is as frictionless as possible. Toggl did a great job.

Hours was a close tie in terms of the web app experience. Hours looked a little nicer, but was a little too minimalistic. Toggl provided the tools I actually needed. But the Mac app is what really sealed the deal for Toggl. There are times when I forget to stop the timer, and the Mac app allows Toggl to detect idle time and ask me if I want to keep it or discard it. This is absolutely a must-have feature.

I should also mention: The chronological view of when and for how long I've worked on projects/clients in a given day: This was also a feature I wanted to have, and luckily Toggle includes in the "Timeline" view.

Cons: There's an awesome feature called Timeline which shows you a graph of what programs your using as you work on different projects... at least I think that's what it does. So far it hasn't populated with any data. It's supposed to pull data from the Mac app if you have "Record Timeline" checked, but it's not.

Toggl sent out a nice "Need any help" type email and I took advantage of this to ask about the Timeline issue. However, I haven't received any reply. Hopefully they'll reply eventually...

One minor con: In the chronological view (Timeline) you can't click on the timeline to manually input some time. This is nice and easy in Hours.

Hours also makes it so easy to know when "now" is. In toggl, the current time isn't indicated. Unfortunate, but not a deal breaker.

Overall: Toggl makes it extremely easy for me to track time spent on various tasks/projects/clients. After trying Toggl for myself, I finally understand why they're so popular.

Pros: The best part about Toggle is that I can see all my representative detail in one look! The application is basic and direct to utilize and route. We can get to the undertakings by means of work area PC, versatile or any gadget. We can include notes and remarks for every section, subsequently its simple to sort and compose passages. Accessibility highlight is exceptionally hearty, with only a watchword I get every one of the insights about the undertakings. I simply love the manner in which it identifies inert time and tells me if to dispose of it. Base clients like us can utilize the free form, it gives a considerable measure of highlights. You get the opportunity to perceive how well the assignments have advanced on consistent schedule. Indeed, even the essential form has awesome announcing and fare highlights, be it Pdf or word or exceed expectations, no stresses!

Cons: The vast majority of the organizations for the most part incline toward a venture administration framework with a period following module instead of only a period tracker, so if the application would give venture administration as well, it would be simply heavenly! There were circumstances I experienced bugs as I had to go at exchanging between workstations. We can't utilize the device in disconnected mode.

Comments: I really love this app and I think more people need to have this time tracking application in their toolkit for 2016. I tested a lot of apps like this but Toggl really impressed me not only by the features, performance, design and cost effective but also by the fast responses I got from Toggl Team. They sent to me also some interesting gifts in february 2016 and I really think I will recommend to all of my clients (I already shared it on my twitter and other online social networks as well) I depend on it so much. I can't imagine another week without toggl reports that shows me where my time was spent, if I was effective or not and so much more. It's so important to know your cashflow and there are a lot of tools out there for tracking that, but what are you using for your "timeflow" ??? Toggl cames with a lot of amazing features here like, clean design, amazing suport, performance in place, available for android, windows, in browser, applications and so on... Toggl has been also my #1 go to for recording my time to bill clients. I couldn't even imagine manually writing time down :)) I think that Toggl is indeed extremely helpful in making sure that everyone knows how they are spending at least their work life so they can identify the trends, patterns and repetitive things that consume this precious resource called "time" ! I'm so grateful to have found it! Thank you Toggl for helping me keep my time straight and helping my Business !

Pros: Amazing support Easy to Use Great Performance "sexy" reports Clean Design Having a Clean Dashboard with the important information time-related & more :) Overall, let's face it...is just an App..but an Amazing one you should try it to Increase the quality of your life and Performance of your Business by spending the time in a more efficient & effective way as possible !

Cons: I can't use it without having the Internet On. (will be a great idea to have an option to track the time spent on your laptop and when you have the wiffi available again to sync the time)

Pros: The lack of ads is wonderful! I use the free version and have found Toggl makes things much simpler for me. The reporting is great and the amount of tools offered in the free version is great. I switched from another product and my reporting of where my time is going has never been more detailed and has helped me keep on track. Tracking time is super quick and easy, especially on task that I do week after week, Toggl stores the information and auto-populates so it saves me those few seconds and gets me working faster. I love it. I also love sending in such a detailed and good looking timesheet each period, way better than just a csv boring spreadsheet. I know we are only scratching the surface with what Toggl can do, hopefully as we grow our Toggl use and team will grow too to be able to streamline even more with their integrations.

Cons: The only thing so far that inconveniences me is the inability to export reports on the Android app. I don't know if that is something that is coming to it eventually, or if that is only available with a different level of plan. But I am 80% of the time mobile and need to send in reports on the go, which isn't too much of a problem that I am always with a laptop. But having to go that extra step does cost me a few minutes here and there. Exporting from mobile would be a huge help.

Overall: Wonderful, no real complaints so far and making the switch to Toggl has been great. We have converted most of our team to Togggl and are excited to bring in some of the integrations that come with paid plans to be able to eliminate some of the admin duties and close some of the cracks we find in communication from time to time.

Pros: I love the minimal, user-friendly design of this software. Daily time-tracking is easy to complete and view in list-view. I am currently using the free version and really appreciate the reporting tools they provide, even for base users.

Cons: There are a few bugs here and there with Toggl when switching between workspaces, but they haven't deterred me from using the product. When trying to view a report for a workspace it seems that you need to have it set as your primary workspace, there is no way to switch between different workspaces in the reporting tab.

Overall: I've used Toggl for the past few years as a quick and inexpensive way to track my time between multiple projects and report the ratio of time spent between them. The software boasts plenty of features for the base/free version (which is the version I use) along with basic reporting. The design is attractive and minimal while the time-tracking pages are easy to use and view. I would recommend this product to others looking for a basic time tracking software.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are looking for simple time tracking and reporting, Toggl is a great product to try. It seems to work best with more basic projects, but you can't be the pricing for the number of features provided, especially if you are working with different clients and need to keep reporting and time tracking very separated.

Pros: Very easy to set-up and use. You can create projects and group tasks together to get an idea for a given week how much time you spent in meetings, on a project, or working on specific tasks. It allowed me to advocate for myself and my team for additional resources as we were able to prove how much time we spent on a weekly basis doing tasks that could be delegated or improved. The ability to provide my leadership team a visual representation of my time and my staffs time was invaluable during budgeting and resource allocation time. You were able to manually enter time if you forgot to start your clock or end the clock. Toggl has countless integrations so you're always able to start and stop time and accurately record your time from any device, anywhere.

Cons: No major issues to report. Obviously, it's incumbent upon the user to record their time accurately. Overall, the experience was tremendous and I have not complaints.

Overall: I credit our use of Toggl as a primary driver in getting additional resources in our department. We were able to visually prove how much time was spent on entry level tasks by staff who were trained to do much higher level tasks. We used the data collected from Toggl to advocate for an entry level staff person to free time up for others to work on higher level, more big picture work.

Pros: Toggl was a great find when we started realizing we needed to do a better job of tracking time. The best features are the easy to use UI, and a display that shows the user a task by task view of how their day progressed, as well as a consolidated weekly view where you can see a more holistic view of where time was spent. The dropdown project selections are very intuitive and when you forget to stop tracking, it is easy to add manual time.

Cons: A downside to adding manual time is that you have to interrupt your time tracking to do it, unless it was earlier in the day. Ultimately, what made us move away from Toggl is that we realized we were paying for multiple tools that were really good at 1-2 things, and we needed a more complete system. We ended up migrating off of Toggl and a few other applications for a more robust project management system that also had a time tracking module, saving the company quite a bit of money in doing so.

Overall: It was very easy to get staff up and running and trained on how you use the application. We liked the visual indicators to differentiate between projects, and the various views to see daily and weekly progress.

We definitely improved our tracking, and therefore our billing, and the ability to quickly and easily switch to different projects meant there was little to no downtime for our staff.

Pros: -This just makes time-tracking so easy! I had always thought time-tracking was a good idea, but was never able to make a habit out of it. However, this app just makes it really simple to have different timers for different tasks, and the charts and analysis of your time use is really great.

- Love that there is an unpaid version and a paid version (paid version gives me peace of mind that the business model is sustainable and so the software will be around for a good while)

Cons: - I think it's a bit difficult for users to understand the utility of this software before they use it. For example, I initially thought 'well, why do I need a devoted app for this? I can just set a timer for each task and jot the times down in a notebook'. I think there needs to be more emphasis on why doing things this way isn't good (it involves much more cognitive fricture and makes it much harder for time-tracking to become a habit), rather than just emphasis on the positive features.

- The name seems to be difficult for some people, as the spelling is somewhat unusual. Fine if you're writing it down for someone, but a friend suggested it to me in conversation and it took me a while to find it because I was searching for 'toggle'.

Overall: Has really allowed me to get an objective grasp on how my time (both work and leisure) is split up and helps me work out how to spend my time better. Really recommend!

Pros: It's about time somebody introduced a timekeeping tool that works with people and not against them. Toggl lets me track time manually (I set the days/hours) or automatically (when I click start, it starts timing). I like how I can track time to any internal or external project and see reports of all kinds. Thanks to the easy-to-read reports, end-of-period billing to clients is super easy.

Cons: I didn't like having to load up all the categories and clients up front when I started using Toggl. However, Toggl makes it easy to change things--even on the fly. Now that I'm into it, I just add new categories on the fly. It takes like 10-15 seconds.

Overall: I use Toggl to track ALL my time, not just billable hours. That gives me a solid sense of how I'm investing my time doing business development, creating new tools/presentations, doing client work, and learning. The interface was recently (Q3, 2018) updated to make time tracking easier (especially when you're making entries for prior days (super useful when traveling).

Pros: I like that it's free, and even though it is free, the features are functional and you get everything you need for a basic time tracker with reports that can be exported as a PDF or Excel file. I didn't need to purchase the upgrade because I'm a solo user and the features available for the free version are all I really need. I did have a project where I collaborate with a couple other people and again, even on the free version, I was able to use the workspace/team feature with no problems. It made tracking time within the team easy.

Cons: I don't have any issues with Toggl, and have used this for more than 5 years in my line of work and business. I would probably recommend a setting where you can't edit the entries for members of the team, or for non-owners so that the time tracker is accurate and not manipulated.

Overall: easy time tracking and I can easily export my timesheets and send to clients.

Pros: The most important thig about time tracking is it must be simple and easy to use. Just press play if you're starting "something" and catgeorise it later. Press play on a task you were doing before and tweak if needed. Set up categories and tags to easily select for reporting later. Simply and intuitively adjust start and end times if you forgot to press start or stop. All web based. Simple but useful reporting, I use for tracking types of work done and overtime.

Cons: Working out the relationships between teams and workspaces and projects is a little complex, but it's not needed for basic time tracking and gives a lot of flexibility and collaboration options when you do master it. Recently the mobile app syncs poorly so even if I do manage to connect it may not stop the timer when I have left my desk. But the interface worked well when it did sync correctly.

With this software I regained the control of time.

Pros: Thanks to Toggle I could finally forget about timesheets. It does all the calculations for you. Now I don't start any task without hitting "start" with Toggl. It also helps me to control workload of the entire team.

The speed and ease of use it true. The app is very light and the interface is very minimalist, does not distract and allows you to quickly set the proper parameters.

It improves overall productivity, a lot, and kill procrastination.

Cons: There were several bugs during software development but now it's ok. At the beginning it takes much time to set up everything (projects, clients, etc.), but later it pays off. The reporting could be more automate (like summary+details) and generate more precise file names. I get lost a sometimes when I try to collect monthly reports from the whole team.

Overall: I got rid of procrastination and gained control over time.

Pros: We use Toggl every day to track all of our tasks. The desktop version is really simple with a welcoming UI. It's easy to keep in the corner of your desktop without distracting you from whatever else you're working on. The mobile app is excellent too. They keep improving it-for instance, in the latest version editing previous time entries was made way easier.

Cons: The desktop app sometimes gets the spinning beach ball of death. Occasionally it won't respond for so long that I have to force quit. Aside from those two complaints, not much is bad. The desktop app will slow down over time as you accumulate time entries; you have to clear the cache to speed it up again. I wish Toggl would automate that process, for instance by removing all time entries older than 2 weeks. Anything longer ago than that I can go online to find.

Pros: It is fairly straightforward on use, but it actually worked better when I first began using it and then every update they have made has made it more of a pain to use.

Cons: This software is somewhat flaky. The way it worked in when I started using it was good, and then they made changes and it went down hill from there. I really don't like that if you enter future time, it retains it but disappears so you can't see or make changes to that future time very easily. You have to go to detailed reports and try to find it. I contacted support and their explanation was that this software is really to track what you are doing right now, but that doesn't mean I may not want to enter something for the near future! Anyway, that was one of the changes they made that made it worse. Also, just clicking in the interface sometimes doesn't work the best.

Pros: Toggl is easy to use for what my team needs it for - which is tracking our hours loosely for grant reporting and project management. I like the tag and project classification system - we use the project function for grant-funded stream, and then the tag for what the activity was. This way I can tell how much time I spent on a grant-funded project over all, and how much was spent on admin, research, etc.

Cons: The timer/default time settings. I find that when trying to log or record time, the default settings aren't very user-friendly. It's easy to accidentally record 26+ hours of work when the AM/PM is not double-checked.

Overall: Toggl does the trick for us. We've used it for grant reporting, and to track remote staff time. When you're a small team but can't be everywhere, it's good to know what your team is working on/how much time they are spending on it.

Pros: Simple. Elegant. Soooooo well thought out. Designed down to the pixel!

Cons: Pricey. Requires expensive subscriptions for the features you really crave.

Overall: I love good apps. Well-design apps that show attention to the customer experience. Toggl, while addressing a task that nobody loves (time sheets and time tracking), is honestly one of my favorite apps. It makes a tedious task tolerable, and it does it with such finesse. I've been using Toggl since it's infancy, and it only gets better and better. The company sincerely cares about the quality of the product and the customers that use it. I couldn't recommend this more highly. I have an entire department on it, I use it for freelance, I recommend it to friends for personal life, and I recommend it to clients often. Great, great, great!

Recommendations to other buyers: This software does everything you could want and dream. I can't imagine any other 'advice' other than to go into it with a 'frugal mindset.' Decide what features you REALLY need, or you'll end up paying a premium for all of the ones you THINK you "need."

Pros: Toggl is one of the best time tracking software out there that i know of, i use Toggl most of all time projects I am involved in for the company i work for. What i like about Toggl is, that is is easy to use the UI is simple and efficient on entering my time spent on a particular projects and such. The web based entry for Toggl shows me the charts and graphs on where i spent my times the most whether if it is projects i worked on or tasks i accomplished, Toggl gives me the broad spectrum of my time spent. Moreover, with just a few clicks i enter in my time, and add couple of notes and done, then Toggl keeps all my data entry any provides my weekly, monthly, and annually graphs and charts. Also Toggle works on multiple platforms so there is no need to worry about which devices are compatible with Toggle.

Cons: One of the major downside of Toggl is that it does not have a screenshot features to where i can take a snapshot of a particular screen and save it with in Toggle.

Overall: Toggl main benefit for me is the ability to track my time and provide me with visual details on where i spent most of my time during working hours.

Pros: Sometimes when I work, I get distracted and lose track of how much time I've spent on something. Using Toggl has helped me keep better track of how I'm spending my time, so that I can see at a glance what I've been doing and when. I use it for my regular job, so the exact start/end times aren't a huge deal, but I've also used it for contracting work when I need to keep track of each minute I spend on a project for a particular client. Toggl lets you use a combination of projects and clients so that freelancers and contractors can keep track of the various tasks and clients they're doing work for. They also show handy summaries and pie charts of how much of my time I've spent on a particular project, and so on.

Cons: Sometimes I've hit "enter" on the desktop app, assumed it started the timer, and gone off on my merry way, only to find hours later that it hasn't started at all! Usually this is an easy fix for me - I just set the start time for whenever my last timer stopped - but occasional times I've had to do some detective work to see how long ago I actually started working.

Pros: + It hooks up to zapier so you can automate some time tracking which is nice.

+ its available on all the platforms & has a dedicated desktop app that can track idle time.

Cons: Its expensive in comparison to other time tracking tools that also do other functions

The reports & analytics are not intuitive or fast.

The biggest problem is that you can start a timer on your desktop & then start a different one on your mobile device... then when you want to stop the timer, it is device specific. That is VERY annoying. If you switch the device that you are using to track the time, then you're definitely going to need to edit the times manually.

The iOS app is also one of the worst UXs I've ever seen from an app. Biggest reason is because the auto-complete for the tasks requires the description added to the Tasks. Is rather confusing to explain over text... but there are way better ways to have achieved time tracking ... a list view of every project & task is not the best way to go.

Overall: I know what we don't like. We prioritized the ability to have a dedicated desktop app, and be on every other platform. I wish I kept with Harvest, it was way better.

Pros: What I like:

- Unlimited projects and clients for free members

- Desktop and mobile applications that help me track time

- Basic reports to help me see where/how my time is used across client projects

- Robust upgrade path

Cons: What I don't like:

- The desktop client only tracks time. I wish I could manage client and project info as well.

Overall: I've been using Toggl for several years and I've never needed to upgrade (sorry Toggl). It's been the best time tracker for my needs without a bunch of bells and whistles. I can easily track my time with the desktop or mobile app, and organize my work using tags. If you need a simple, but powerful, time tracker, then this is the one to get. You can subscribe to one of their monthly plans if you need additional features like advanced reporting or if you need to add billing rates to your time tracking.

It is worth getting this app just for time tracking!

Pros: We can't underestimate the abilities of this application. It is not just a time tracking software but effectively does it automatically once we set it up correctly. It works seamlessly in all the platforms that ensures we are not loosing any data with out being tracked. Preparing invoices just takes another 2-3 minutes as everything will be easily exported easily. It automatically detects idle time and notifies the user whether to pause the timer and if not responded with in a few minutes, the timer will stop. It ensures not even a minute is not getting wasted! We use the basic free plan.

Cons: In the market there are other expensive project management tools which offers all the services offered by Toggl as just one of it features. So using Toggl just occupies more space on the desktop. If someone already paying for those expensive tool won't use Toggl.

Pros: I switched to this from another time tracker and have NOT been disappointed so far. My favorites:

- Being able to create new projects on the fly

- Being able to color code clients so that when quick turn projects come in I can find clients easily

- Having even small time increments be added automatically and kept with the project at large-

- Having all of the appropriate tagging info right at the top with the timer switch, so I don't have to go looking for it.

Cons: The few cons I've found so far:

- It seems like a lack of bulk actions. I was trying to archive multiple projects and although I was able to select the checkbox next to them, I could not easily see a way to mass archive them so I had to do it one by one.

- I also could not get the filter to work. I was trying to view only my active projects, and even applying that filter, it was still only showing me the full list of all projects (archived and active).

- The little announcement pop-up in the bottom right of the screen. I understand that free users don't really bring in revenue, but it's annoying to have toggle open on my screen for quick access, and to keep having that pop up (in red) trying to push advanced features. Its annoying and distracting.

Overall: It is much better than the other trackers I've used and I'm glad to have found it. It makes tracking all the small increments of projects really easy and makes it easy to see where my day went.

Time tracking with Toggl is very easy.

Pros: It has a simple design and no extra knowledge is needed to operate this application. It gets into work the very moment a task is set up. This application can help you build a systematic life and improve your business doings. Even the free version shows complete justice to the user. On a specific day, it displays the complete list of things performed orderly. Its support line is very interactive and helpful. The graphical representation of your time spent can give a more detailed study over your schedule.

Cons: It contains quite a number of bugs. It cannot be used without internet. While many other similar applications work offline, this particular feature is a major con. History cannot be seen unless a report is produced. It does not get along with Google Calendar. There is no feature to integrate the events from the latter to the former.

Pros: Its simplicity for users. It is no problem getting users started recording their time.

Toggl integrates with loads of websites - install the chrome extension and just hit the red timer button on many websites to start recording time. You can even right click a phrase and use it as the title for the time.

Cons: It gets expensive quickly.

API integrations are lacking, we have to double handle many figures. We haven't found a simple means of turning records in to invoices.

We haven't found a way of linking a task management system with Toggl that pulls projects, value etc across.

Overall: Accurate recording of time spent on activities across the team.

Tracking against project time and value targets.

Pros: At it's simplest, it tracks time. I want to keep track of what I'm doing and I can do that. The OS X menu bar application reminds me when I've forgotten to use it, which is a time saver (haha). It's especially handy to be able to track time and then categorize what it is later. It eventually works it's way into your routine, which feels like exactly what I want.

Cons: For something that markets itself as simple and hassle-free, there is a LOT going on with this app. The fact that there's a tab for (paid) training should be an indicator of the complexity here. Projects, Clients, Teams, Workspaces, Tags... it's too much. I'm pretty confident I haven't scratched the surface of the feature set, but digging any further ultimately means I'm spending a non-trivial amount of time to track my time, which just leaves me ignoring it. Still, after a project, I'm left feeling like I didn't really capture any actionable data since I didn't meticulously categorize my time as I went.

Toggl provided our entire department with an accurate snapshot of how we spend our time.

Pros: Toggl allowed us to begin the journey of proper time management, but also proper project management. We saw first hand evidence of tasks and projects that were causing an imbalance of priority that is meant to be spread out amongst several service lines. It told us the truth of our minute to minute actions at work, and helped increase productivity greatly.

Cons: The interface was at times a bit cumbersome regarding backlogging information on particular days in the past. It felt like it took one click and key stroke too many...

Overall: Utilizing Toggl as a whole department was like a positive audit for our time management as a whole, and individually. It held us accountable, yes, but it did more than that. It allowed us to analyze and assess how better we can spend our time and resources as various units and increased our efficiency by an immeasurable amount.

Pros: In the remote team, every new employee gets trained with Toggl for a few months. We use Toggl instead of anything else because the time tracking software is incredibly easy to deploy. Toggl doesn't care if you're a Mac, Windows, Linux, Unit, Toaster user. (Okay maybe don't use toasters for your OS system.) You can put it on your mobile device, add it as a gmail extension, and do all sorts of other fun integrations.

The value is how easy it is to build reports. I can quickly export a day/week/month's worth of activities to my boss to give them an idea of the time length of projects. If I was working with a team, I can avoid the back-and-forth exchange and look at their report from the administrative side. Moreso, the reminders are pretty helpful, pinging me when I may forget to track my time.

Cons: There's nothing I can think of that Toggl can do better. It's a solid platform, the price is great and I highly recommend it.

Overall: Knowing where my time went!

Pros: Although it's mainly designed for tracking time, which it did very well, it actually plays a second-role to remind you that your working is being "supervised". As a remote-worker, I use this app to make myself more responsible. By seeing how many hours I've spent on working, I can fix the schedule to work efficiently. When the time is counting, the app icon will light up, so I know that it's working time and I should not surf Reddit. A remarkable feature is that if the time is not counting, it will remind you to track your time every 10 minutes. That is more like reminding you to start working! Fantastic.

Cons: If I want to change information of multiple time periods (like project, task name, etc.), I will have to edit them individually. I have to click on each period and edit it, I can't select multiple periods and update them at once. It happens when I accidentally click "track time" during my work day just to see how long I have worked, without noticing the information of the work periods. Later in the day when I look back, the task names and projects are incorrect so I wish I could fix that more quickly. That's just a small minus point for such a nice app.

Overall: I can focus more on my job and see my productivity during the day so that I can improve myself on being a responsible worker.

Pros: Toggle is user friendly and probably the best time management tool I have ever tried.I leverage on Toggle to track and analyze the amount of time I spend on projects and tasks ,whenever I am behind my PC and when on the move.I admire how the Toggl team have continuously improved this tool over the years ,to fit changing needs of users.

Overall it has helped me ensure I make the best use of my time ,and know when I am working below my usual efficiency ratio.

Cons: Safari has been my favorite browser for years . However Toggle does not work on Safari and thus I have been forced to use other browsers.

Great time-track system when you don't need hours to go through an approval chain.

Pros: I like the stop/start feature and the sub-projects you can have under each main project. This works out great for us as some of the work we don on clients is Retainer and some of it is billed Hourly. By tracking this way, we can see how much time is spent on the client as a whole, and then separate out what we need to bill hourly for.

Cons: The start/stop feature lags a bit behind sometimes. The ability to tag items can seem a bit overwhelming unless you limit your company to specific ones and make sure employees don't create new ones.

Overall: An easy time-sheet tracking system, and reports we can pull for monthly margins.

Pros: I use this tool every day for tracking the billable hours of several clients. It could not be easier to track, assign, edit, and review time on a variety of clients and their projects, and even look up past data in an analytics view.

Cons: The analytics view can be tricky to use to copy past hours into an invoice as you have to mouse over each day to see the totals, therefore cannot copy/paste those numbers or even glance at them to manually type into another window. It's not a problem though if you record each week at the end as the tracking page is easy to review in detail.

Great tool to make you aware of how you spend your time.

You can have detailed and easy to use reports to see how you spend your time. You can integrate Toogl many other online apps.

Cons: I really don't know if there is anything I least like about Toggl. I have been using it for years and I completely satisfied with it.

Overall: Toggl really makes us save time and money. Because, using Toggl, we know very well how much time we spend on every project and every little task.

I like how you can filter the reports by day, week, client - this is very helpful.

Pros: If you need time tracking software, look no further. It tracks everything. Literally, everything. It can be a bit exhaustive to the point of excessive, but sometimes (especially for our team) that's exactly what we need. I especially like how well it works with other management tools. We have designers, writers, artists, and editors all working on different projects and Toggl has been vital in all of us staying on task.

Cons: Don't get me wrong, Toggl is great. I have very few complaints. But it tracks everything almost to a fault. Having to create a report to see past history can be a bit of a pain. But again, it's nothing huge.

Overall: If you need to track time, Toggl is one of the best tools for it!

Cons: Price. Definitely the pricing is really high for the benefits. It is basically a timer guys, so come on, a team of 10 really have to drop golds tp afford it...dont forget the common startup or small business already have to pay for Office 365 suite, for task managing, eventually for security like enterprise mobility management softwares, etc.

Pros: Toggl is incredibly simple yet still gets the job done. It is amazing how something so basic can offer a big insight into how you spend your time and therefore how to shift your focus if it isn't as good as it should be.

Cons: While simplicity is its best asset, I wish there was an option to use more advanced features and manual controls on starting and stopping timers for certain activities. I also wish there were sub-activities, likened to keeping track of time for certain activities on certain projects

Overall: It offers a lot of insight into how you spend your time, it was shocking. I now always use it to keep track and see if there are still times I am spending too much time on things that shouldn't take long due to a lack of focus.

Pros: This tool is super simple and straightforward, but provides so much value. It gave me a very clear picture of how I was spending my time and helped me learn to switch tasks WAY less frequently. This has allowed me to work deeply, with focus, and accomplish more in less time. I was all over the place before, switching tasks 30-50 times per day, and now I've got it down to 5-15 task switches in a day. I also love that the timer continues even if I accidentally close the browser tab, which I often do. It's also nice you can go back and edit times if you forget to turn the timer off.

Overall: Helped me figure out how I'm spending my time so I can prioritize and focus better.

Pros: Toggl is easy to use web-based solution. It's great to keep the most important project information in one place. There are useful options like:

- timer

- dashboard

- report

- insights.

I can manage projects in many ways:

- projects

- clients

- team

- workspace

- tags

It's easy way to answer question about projects.

If it's necessarily - data can be exported in many formats:

- PDF

- csv

- Excel.

I use Excel export to create pivot tables, to present data in complex views.

Toggl has many options to filter data and present as reports & dashboard, so I can specific information quickly.

Cons: It would be interesting to see more options to present information - maybe based on group of information, like mind maps structures with context complex data.

Overall: quick project management information

Use daily to track time for several businesses. I chose it for the brilliantly simple UI that I actually use!

If I walk away and forget to stop a timer, I can just do it from my phone :) I really am not the sort who like to track every second of every day, but it's a requirement these days, and Toggl makes it so easy that I find myself tracking things I don't even HAVE to, just to get some insight into my time-spending habits.

Cons: It doesn't integrate with our other tools (like AxoSoft), so I have to manually copy my logs into our systems. Ease of use far out-weighs this inconvenience imho however.

Pros: Minute-by-minute tracking of Tasks across Projects and Clients makes it super useful. Ease of use helped accelerate the deployment within the company. The floating time ticker widget on the desktop app is a bonus! The free version should meet most of your time tracking requirements. Idle time tracking is great to have.

Cons: The license fee is sky high, should one choose to migrate from the free plan to a paid one. Apart from this, there aren't any glaring 'misses', even in the free version.

Pros: I had to use this software last year and I liked very much, especially diagrams, which are easy understandable. Summary report is also very simple and transparent.

Cons: Sometimes I had problem to assign several tasks to project and later on report them. It would be great to find a better surface for reporting. Nowadays I have to use Harvest, which surface is a bit better and reporting is a bit easier. However, I still have problem: notes are not visible, searchable.

Overall: Friendly surface, easy to use.

Pros: Toggl is incredibly simple in use. It has exactly the features you need: logging tasks, that can be assigned to projects, that can be linked to clients.

It has a web app, mobile app AND desktop app (although I always felt like the last added the least value), so you never have to miss an entry.

Pretty plots are generated weekly or monthly that give you insight into when you were most productive or what takes the most of your time.

It shows a nice timer in the top bar of your browser to remind you that you are still tracking your time.

Cons: Toggl won't stop tracking if you don't explicitly tell it to (which admittedly, I often forget).

It only allows so much space to define your current "task", which I usually solve by adding a link to a JIRA, Trello, ... ticket.

Overall: It has helped me manage my time spent on large projects so much better.

Pros: Toggl is super easy to use, you press a button and it will start tracking your time and then you can assign the time manually or automatically to different categories and tasks. Toggl is small and can sit on your dock.

Cons: Toggl is hard to remember to do (which isn't a fault of the software), but it does limit its effectiveness quite a bit if you aren't diligent about using it effectively. Additionally, getting reports and data out of Toggl into usable formats can be a bit tedious.

Pros: I loved that I knew exactly what I used my time for during the day, even the non billable hours. I also liked that for staff that you are supervising, you can measure their improvements in time management.

Cons: When it looks like it is running and working, and it happens that it is not registering anything. This happens when for whatever reason there is a problem with internet connection.

Overall: I think it is a great tool for a business, specially when you have to bill for the time that you put into projects.

Comments: Toggle has taken the dull task of time-tracking and made it quick and painless. I use Toggl internally, to keep track of how my time is divided between our group of companies. The reporting tools have proven very useful in providing my team with accurate distribution/ratios and hours spent on projects.

Pros: I like Toggl's interface, it is friendly and intuitive, it's also free for basic users. As a free user, I'm impressed with the features it offers at no cost, I'm able to track time, add an unlimited number of projects and use Toggle's reporting tools. Colour coded projects, easy to add tasks, and auto-fill have also helped to make my life a lot easier.

Cons: There is one annoyance that I run into repeatedly. When adding a task, I usually go in at the end of the day and re-cap (sometimes the next day or a few days later) When adding a time entry, it always adds it on the last day that you entered time, so entries end up on the wrong day. The time tracker won't update the date until you create an entry and remember to select the new day/date. Hopefully, that made sense, not a deal breaker for me, just slightly annoying.

Pros: Simple and easy to use. Has "enough" features. Lightweight, with a great mobile app. Elegant. Keyboard shortcuts makes it a breeze to use. Killer feature - if you forget to turn it off, it tells you you've been inactive for X time and asks you what to do with it.

Cons: Can be a bit spammy with tracking notifications. Although they made the app faster and more stable, haven't seen any upgrade feature wise (not sure if this is really a con)

Overall: Optimised my expenses and helped me create better ballparks.

Starting and stopping work is with the click of a button and I can categorize hours by client, project, and task for reporting and billing purposes.

It is lightweight software, so rarely glitches and the iphone app that syncs my time makes tracking on the go just as simple. Multiple user capabilities are also available for larger firms.

Recommendations to other buyers: The desktop app is easy to use and reminds me when I need to start my time tracking.

Chrome extension is the best feature

Smooth, easy to use interface

Cons: Reporting can be clunky, but only requires a couple extra mouse clicks to find what we need.

Overall: We have used Toggle for over a year. The Chrome extension which integrates with our other tools and task management systems makes it a life saver. The reminders to track time, or to discard idle time, keep us on task, literally. Tags make it easy to keep time logs sorted according to how we prefer to do reporting.

Recommendations to other buyers: More than pays for itself by reminding you to log time that might otherwise go unreported, and unbilled!

It produce reports very accurately and hence accounting works are also easy as the format is universal. I can manage multiple projects at the same time and can toggle though projects easily.

Cons: It doesn't integrate with Google Calendar and hence project timings should be manually entered. There is no offline tracking feature which makes it difficult to track the time if the PC is offline.

Pros: For simple time tracking, it is so easy to use you'll make it part of your daily routine with ease. I use the report feature to submit a weekly detailed description of what I've been doing for my client. Or, I'll get a quick report to see where my hours are at in case I'm in danger of working too much - or not enough.

Cons: Can't think of anything. Honestly. This has made hour tracking a breeze - at least in my little world. I know someone who works for several clients at once/several projects at once -- this might change the experience somewhat from mine but he loves it too so it can't be that cumbersome.

Pros: Toggl has been the time-tracking solution used in almost every company I've worked with and I still use it as a freelancer.

The UI is easy to use and integrates with everything from Zapier to Jira. Features cover everything you would need for straightforward time reporting. You can track, edit, tag the time logs and when it's time to invoice you can generate a report.

In the paid version you can use Toggl to send the invoice, but the free version works fine too if you're okay with switching between multiple apps.

Overall a great option for freelancers, contractors, and anyone who just needs to track their billable and non billable hours in a way they can show in a professional format.

Cons: Moving to a paid subscription is pricier than most would like. I also found the constant popups rather annoying after a while, but I'm using the free version after all.

Overall: Track time quickly and efficiently with the option to generate a report.

Comments: I've been using Toggl for several years and consistently recommend it to those who need a simple, easy-to-use but feature-rich time tracker. The combination of website, mobile, and desktop app trackers make it portable and highly functional in any environment. They have a slew of features and integrations that can help automate repeated tasks, and I make thorough use of the reporting feature to keep an eye on productivity and project status.

Pros: Toggl is just easier to use than anything else I've tried before. It can work offline, from your phone, or from the website itself. It integrates with my billing software (Freshbooks) so I don't need to enter in client information and project information more than once. Some of the great features include notifying me if the tracker has been running too long or sat idle, displaying billable and non-billable hours in a clear graph format, customizing rates per project or task, and email reports.

Cons: My issues with Toggl are fairly superficial: I wish there were more colors for clients/projects, and I wish the desktop app would work faster when it starts to autofill project information.

Recommendations to other buyers: I recommend Toggl without reservation, particularly to those needing to track time for multiple projects.

This application has served me to keep track of time in tasks and to combine it with Asana software together they become a great tool of work.

Comments: The facility that gives you the application and portability make it easy to use, I do not use it but I know that it can be linked to a billing software, but even if it is not linked it helps you keep track of the hours you should charge to the clients.

Pros: The control of the projects becomes much easier to take it with this tool, it helps you have repetitive tasks in a streamline, optimizing the administrative time you will be able to visualize the progress and the status of the projects in a simple and clear viewer.

Cons: Sincerely I have not had big problems with the application, but if I have to say something about the application it seems that the color palette to define the projects is somewhat limited, and also when a project has many tasks or is already very large the system it's a bit slow

Pros: -- The fact that it doesn't just start and stop, recording the time passed. It includes the start time and stop time, so I can adjust it after the fact. (This is especially helpful if I start the timer and forget to stop it.)

-- The Project and Client are easy to keep track of.

-- The tags. Because of tags, I can easily keep track of which hours I have billed for already and which hours are unbillable.

-- The reports. Because of the tags mentioned above, I can easily generate a report of untagged hours so I know what to bill for.

Cons: I've got no complaints. Sometimes I'm annoyed by the notifications that pop up onscreen, but that is nitpicky and a tiny price to pay for something I'm still using at the free level.

Pros: Toggl is very simple to use. I've had team members use it so I can see what they spend the most time on to improve their efficiency. It's as simple as adding or selecting a previous task and starting the timer. Once you are done, stop the timer and switch to your next task. The best thing about the product is it's ease-of-use. You can also track time offline. This is a great tool for if you are needing to track your time traveling or in meetings without internet access.

Cons: If you forget to stop the timer from running, the software will not warn you. For example, if you need to step away from your computer for a while and your computer goes to sleep, the timer will continue to track. You can update the time once you come back, but you'll just need to remember when it was that you stepped away originally.

Recommendations to other buyers: There are a lot of time tracking softwares out there. Most of them have different features so it really depends on what your reason is to track time. A lot of billing softwares already have time tracking built in.

Cons: The simplicity and fast function of this programs is also what can be bad, I'll explain myself. As the program is quite just for tracking time, it lacks other funcionalities that other software has, like screenshots or things that will help you get better knowledge of what's going on. But you want this software tracking only for yourself or for a trusty team, then it's an awesome option.

Overall: The fastest tracking time software, simple but effective.

Pros: I like Toggl because it's easy to use and apply to a team. It's got minimal frills, but just enough to keep things organized and perform basic record keeping an analytics. It also works well across other functions as pop-ups remind you to start logging time when it recognizes you might be starting work. It integrates into Chrome very nicely. The aesthetics of the product are very easy and works well for visually-oriented people.

Cons: I always forget to turn it off! It's good about reminding you when to start, but bad at reminding you to clock out. The service will send you reminder emails when you forget, but it's usually not until the next day that I see it. Manual entries aren't difficult, but they can be a little annoying (small areas to click, recognizing time formats, etc.).

Overall: I use this for personal use, that is, I don't report my hours to bill. However, it's great for keeping on track and helping me manage my time. I work better and more efficiently when I use it, not much mind you, but it was an interesting little productivity fringe benefit which I did not anticipate.

Pros: I like the ability to manage everything over multiple platforms. I primarily use the simple desktop platform, and rely on the mobile app to adjust or correct while I am in meetings or forget before leaving the office.

Cons: As others have stated before, the reporting could use a little fine tuning, however it is more than adequate for the minimal cost of the software.

Overall: Associating time spent to open project, and the ability to track those hours as billable or not. Summary report of hours each week to help categorize time for performance KPIs.

Tracking my time

The weekly reports

Export to Excel

Cons: None I can think of

Overall: I use Toggl App to record my time when I'm on a service call. I used to try and track my time on a pad of paper but I would forget to write it down the time I started and when I left; then try to estimate when I got to the next call. This is a great tool for me in my business.

Pros: Toggl has a free version for a limited number of users, so a great option for a small business that's trying out time tracking software

Cons: The functionality is not as great as other paid alternatives (Harvest). I'd like the ability to switch between users on the main screen so I can see real time what my employees are running their timers for.

Pros: Simplicity and power of integrations is what makes Toggl a good tracking system.

Cons: The general state of time tracking tools is that they fail to automate your workflow. So it happens most of the time to me or my devs that they forget to stop the tracker.

Overall: Overall, I am happy with it, I use it in sync with GSuite + Trello... It helps me to be mindful of my daily tasks.

Pros: Toggl is a very good cloud based solution to the issue of time management. we use it daily to keep track of everything. We love that there are desktop and phone apps as well as the web portal.

Cons: It can be confusing to generate reports of items that need to be billed, This is no doubt as they don't use the UK Apr-Mar financial year.

Comments: Reporting is easy to use.

Pros: I am a marketing consultant with multiple clients and Toggl helps me keep track of projects by client as well as different rates.

Cons: There is no way to change a client rate without altering historical data, but there is a workaround by creating a new project with the new rate attached to that project.

Pros: Our company has been using Toggl for a while now to monitor our employees' activities. Time tracking is possible with this software. Also, payroll, billing, and invoicing features are present. It really does most of my job for me. The set-up is easy and fast, with little hassles.

Amazing and very useful software.

Cons: Report customization is very limited, especially on payroll matters. It will be really nice if reports are more customizable than it is now.

Simplistic, easy, and well designed!

Pros: - Easy to use.

- Great looking, sleek UI.

- Apps are well equipped.

- Desktop app also available (which is a nice addition).

Cons: The only downside to Toggl, in my opinion, is that it lacks some features that would definitely be nice to have.

Overall: Allowed us to easily manage working hours for our staff. Easier for clients, staff and management.

Pros: I like that Toggle can accurate track the amount of hours remaining in a month. It gives a good overview of one account. I referred this software to my clients to automate their staff time tracking as well.

Cons: I wish that Toggle could be embedded into Basecamp like other time tracking software can. When tracking times with many different projects like 14 I would like a clearer overview of how much time is remaining for each project within a months time frame.

Pros: Toggl is an amazing program for time tracking. As a freelancer, I often need to track my time on individual tasks and projects. Toggl was a great choice for me personally. I love the ability to add multiple projects (clients) as well as subtasks to track. Using Toggl has made it so much easier to have an accurate representation of how much time it actually takes for each project.

Cons: Like any time-tracking device, it is easy to forget to turn off the timer when you've finished a task. With the desktop app, I've found it easier to monitor when the app is tracking as opposed to using the browser version.

Cons: The free version is great, but I miss features from the first tier that I don't think that worth the money. So I believe that could be another tier of features for a minor price.

Pros: I like being able to send reports to my clients and see how much time I am using on various tasks within my business. I love that I can record time entries manually for those days that l forget to run Trello or work away from my desk or phone.

Cons: The learning curve for advanced features is quite steep. I don't really know how to do anything except record entries and generate reports.

Overall: It does what it says it will do and is a necessity in any digital office.

Pros: Toggl is super easy to use and for freelancers or small teams is just perfect. Nice is a bunch of integrations so any modern todolist or CRM could be quickly used as a list of tasks to track.

Cons: The mobile application is not so well done and to manage and organize for a bigger team it is really clumsy.

Pros: Ease of use! Value. Toggl makes tracking time incredibly useful. Whether you are tracking your personal time or tracking time for specific projects I have never used a better time tracking software. Their project tracking is incredibly easy and user-friendly and their reporting system makes for an extremely efficient business solution.

Cons: No cons to speak of, I have used Toggl for over a year and have never experienced a single problem.

Keeping track of your billable hours has never been easier.

Pros: Toggl allows you to set up a wide variety of customers and projects each with their own tariff per hour, the developers then simply activate the timer when they are working on a clients project and when done, stops the timer to reflect the exact time spent on the described task.

Cons: To fully unlock all the features we would like to use, can become quite a pricey venture as we have discovered so make sure to do proper research beforehand.

Pros: The UI is great. It's easy to run monthly reports for billing. The way you set up projects lets me easily segment by client and project. Ongoing refinements and updates. They're really on top of this service and show a great commitment to making it better.

Overall: It saves me lots of time and makes it easy to keep projects, clients, and time spent straight. I keep it open in a tab in my browser at all times. I've tested lots of offerings in the time tracking space and this was by far my favorite.

Pros: I loved the overall concept of this app. So easily kept track of my working hours according to the project I was working on. So helpful as a self-employed admin assistant working for several clients.

Cons: Sometimes I 'd get working on a project & forget to start my timer. Whereas I was able to go back in later to record the total time I had spent on the project, I wished there was functionality to record the actual time I had started & finished. (Then again, perhaps this functionality exists today & I'm unaware.)

Overall: I love the app! It was recommended to me by a friend of mine & I've since recommended it to others!

Pros: I really like how easy it is to add tasks during the day. There is no requirement to have tasks or projects predefined. I also like the "plug-in" that shows up in the our project tracking application that allows me to start the timer directly from the task I am working on. The ability to sync from my desktop the web is a also a plus as I often work from 2 different work stations.

Cons: I often would like to add a note to a time entry, but currently there is no way to add a notes to a task that has been tracked inside of Toggl.

Overall: Ability to track time spent on daily tasks for reporting to my management team.
