Toggl Software


 

Toggl is a cloud-based project management solution that specializes in time tracking.

With Toggl, users can track time in real time. Users switch Toggl on, and a timer begins to run. This timer tracks billable hours. Time can be tagged by project or any other filter. If users forget to switch Toggl on, they can manually enter time later.

Toggl allows users to start out with simple time tracking and later set up user rights and project setup. Users can track time logged by all of their team members. Reports can be generated that show how long team members spent on different projects, how much total time each team member spent working and progress toward team goals.

In Toggl, users can export timesheets and email reports to customers or bosses. Offline support is offered, so users can log time when not connected to the Internet, and then upload that time to the cloud once they’re connected again.

Toggl is priced per user, and users can be billed either monthly or annually. It is integrable with Trello, Asana and other productivity tools. Mobile apps are available for Android and iOS.

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.

Advice to Others

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

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.

Likes Least

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

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.

I use toggl to track the different tasks under my job description. It not only does that, but is very user-friendly as well, with features that enable the user to continue the same task easily and autofiill functions for the same purpose. I also find the reports very helpful.

I use Toggl to track everything I do for my side business Patey Designs and I honestly don't think I'd be profitable without it.

Toggl makes it extremely easy to track the amount of time I've worked on a project, produce detailed reports for clients, and report accurate billable amounts for invoicing. Not to mention it's great at showing you where/when you might be slacking.

Gladly paid for the entire year subscription and haven't looked back.

Pros

Ease of use, accuracy, not so many bells and whistles that it's confusing while still having everything I need.

Cons

Haven't stumbled upon any yet.

Advice to Others

Get it.

Been using this for months now and it keeps track of time worked on each project which is incredibly important when you're billing customers per hour. Simple to use and lots of cool features

Pros

It's so easy to keep track of time spent on a project. Exports are awesome and everything is easy to find and share when needed

Cons

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.

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.

Advice to Others

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.

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.

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!

Pros

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

Cons

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

Advice to Others

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."

I use Toggle daily to track my hours and various activities at work. Working from home this is the ideal way to keep track of hours. It is free and has everything you need. Reports are very easy to use so at the end of the month I just click on the report and send my hours off to accounting. Highly recommend.

Pros

I really like Toggl. I tried several, and I wanted something with no learning curve, that was extremely quick to activate, gave me the basic information on how I spend my time, and sends me weekly reports. That's Toggl

Pros

Simple and easy to install, learn, and use. No unnecessary frills. Sends weekly reports.

Cons

There isn't really anything I don't like. It's an excellent option for a freelancer that just needs to keep track of time, by project, with project numbers/clients. Maybe if you had a large team, it wouldn't work, but I am not really sure.

Advice to Others

Not really. I find its simplicity to be its biggest advantage, for me. I really wanted something I didn't have to learn and the platform is extremely intuitive. Price is right.

We've used toggl for years. We use the Mac version of Toggl Desktop and appreciate the reminders to track time as well as the notification with clear and easy choices for how to handle when we've been away from the computer for a while (very useful when I forget to stop the clock or a two-minute phone call turns into 20).

The pricing has gone up a decent amount since we first started using it. At this point, I'll need to re-evaluate the other alternatives. In the past, however, when I've tried other choices I found them ugly, lacking in functionality, or less-than-simple to use or report on. Toggl has been top-notch in these areas. Except for concerns about the current price levels, I highly recommend the service.

As an academic, I juggle many different projects: from teaching courses and mentoring students to organizing conferences and doing the research itself. I've been using Toggl for about two years to help me know where my time goes and whether I'm putting enough effort into the activities that give me the most benefit. Toggl also helps me prepare quarterly reports for research projects. I've been recommending it to my colleagues and I'm happy to provide a positive review.

Pros

Great value for money, easy to work with, does its job well

Cons

Actually, there's not much room for improvement.

I try more than 25 direct time tracker, Toggl is the best if you want to work for your Business and not for the time tracker.
You Can track all ultra small task without time-consuming.
Start the timer and choose the Project & task after if you want.
Perfect for me!

Pros

NO Need to choose Project, task or any details to track something. You can only add a fast short comment.

Cons

Missing full integration with more other apps

I'm terrible at keeping track of the time I've spent on one project before moving on to another one - like most people, I jump back and forth from one thing to another without actually thinking about the time spent on it. Toggl has helped me focus a little better on one thing at a time, at least when I remember that I'm tracking my time spent! I like that you can organize by projects and add descriptions so that I can see an overall and individual time when I need to.

I recently took over HR in addition to my regular responsibilities, so I started to use Toggl as a way to track how much time I was spending doing each function. It has been completely eye-opening to see how much time I actually spend on each project.

I can see how this would be great for freelancers who get paid hourly and need to keep track of hours, for team managers who want to see what their team is working on, and for account managers/lawyers who need to bill clients/track time spent per client

Pros

Super easy to use

Cons

I wish they had more analysis functionality, but its a new product so I'm sure they will be enhancing it
