We were looking simply for a time-keeping software. Function Fox provided everything we needed, and it was not cumbersome or difficult to learn to use.

Pros

Very simple and easy to use.

Advice to Others

We just needed time-keeping software and some accountability for our time. This software gave us the option of clocking in and out, and there was a memo field that we can use to keep a record of what we did.

The navigation does not line up. If you are in a specific job logging your time and then want to blog your work progress in that job channel it is not a straight shot to the blog. You have to go to blog and then find the job number all over again.

Recommendations

Think of all aspects for recording time and share information with your team.

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

Likes Least

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

I also dislike that when I change tabs in one job I have to refind it again when the page changes.

Recommendations

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

No calendar glance - gantt chart of projects so it's impossible to realistically plan out multiple projects.

Recommendations

The file size for upload is small so they will have to live elsewhere. The calendar does not integrate with google. You can not make forms such as POs and invoices. Very rigid - look elsewhere.

Great project management software. In the paid version, it is helpful if your business uses estimated hours in project. This software allows you to use that and compare to actual hours to perform the tasks. As well as how many hours your personnel is committed to in projects.

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

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

Recommendations

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

When I started at Keystone Click, BrightPod was their PM software for web development...not the right platform for the agency, as:

-Projects were being delivered late and over budget
-Resources were consistently over allocated
-UX was too busy/confusing
-Reports were confusing/lacking
-Workflows (templates) didn't work for us
-Accountability in getting work done within scope/budget and on time did not exist

I researched other platforms and narrowed it down to three: FunctionFox, Function Point, and Paprika. In the end, we determined FunctionFox was the best solution, and it's made my job so much easier. Within 3 months projects were on-time/under budget, and I could not have turn things around so quickly without FunctionFox!!!

Likes Least

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

Recommendations

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

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

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

In terms of the vendor, every staff member we have been in contact with has been very friendly and helpful. Even before we signed up, the sales rep was the perfect balance of keeping in contact without being annoying.

As for the product, it makes it so much easier to accurately track my time.

I do not have any complaints about the product or the vendor.

Sign up for the free trials of a couple different products. Some products are difficult to understand until you actually use them and realize how simple they make tracking time!

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

In order for it to link to a project you need to do a sink process.
