Time tracking made easy, expenses reporting needs work

Not the greatest - the lack of good expense tracking (you can only bill to a project, not to the task within the project) and the lack of decent mileage tracking make us use other products for these, causing double entry. Support has been less than responsive about the idea of improving it. Lack of any real feature updates in two years. Where is all my money going?

Pros

The time tracking is easy to configure and works. Makes an easy job of managing my team and gathering their time.

Cons

There are a number of items... the cost is high per user. Could be very costly with a larger company. The lack of ability to track mileage properly - IRS requires that you detail a log (minimal, but details are needed). I can only enter the total miles driven on an expense item. Every other tracking app on the market allows me to enter the start and end mileage and track which vehicle it goes against. When I asked support about this, they told me it is not on their radar. Very little seems to be on their radar - after two years of using it, I have not seen any real major updates to functions.

Time Management Companion

I Have made Important Improvement in - Amount of Billable Hours - Resourceful Activities - Better Workflow - Outsourcing Thank you, Harvest!

Pros

I like that I have been able to track my Billable Hours with each Project with ease.
I also like that I have been able to delegate those Non-billable hours and be more Productive with my time! l Love working with Harvest!

Cons

I would like to be able to create a report with Monthly Measurements for each project in one single report.
It would give me an overview where I could improve my Time Management even more in my workflow

Perfect Match to TEAMWORK (Project Management Tool)

We are really in love with Harvest so far. It changed the way we log and invoice hours, as it is much easier due to the TEAMWORK integration and its built in features. Support is great and fast. Highly recommended.

Pros

Integration to TEAMWORK actually boost our use of TEAMWORK.
Possible to FORECAST the team work load and compare estimated with actual time (extra $5 per user).
Very nice REPORTING tools really help you to visualize and have insights about how your resources are used.
Built in APPROVAL work flow to improve security and compliance.
Easy way to INVOICE billable hours (Quickbooks and Xero integration).

Cons

Not possible to import entries from other systems was the only down side of implementing it so far as we are not able to see the historic data in the Harvest.
Because we need to pay for different systems (TEAMWORK, HARVEST and FORECAST) the total cost per user for our company can be around $30. Not a problem but probably there are other systems that can do it all for the same price (but I need to say that Harvest has one of the best interfaces and reports that I ever see.

Keeps software projects on budget

Pros

Used with a team of contractor developers to track time spent on the project. Worked great with 15+ remote devs and helped us stay on budget. Great UI and features.

Cons

Works well for time tracking but invoicing and estimates are lacking in features. The desktop app can be buggy.

Harvest Time Tracking is Easy to Use

Pros

Harvest is a really simple time tracking tool, has the basic features you need and that's it.

Cons

I like the simplicity, but it's so simple from the users end that I don't feel like I have any control of what my dashboard looks like. I also dislike that I can't add a task for myself and have to choose from the default list created by my admin.

Great tool for software dev time tracking

Pros

Utilized for time tracking with software developers. Desktop and web apps work together seamlessly. Makes invoicing customers very easy when doing hourly billing

Cons

Limited in invoice customization and it's not a full blown accounting tool so you're still required to have at least another tool that handles that

Time Tracking is a Hassle, But Harvest Makes it Tolerable

Pros

Super easy to set up and use, simple to add projects and team members.

Cons

I mean, it's still time-tracking and you have to remember to start & stop the timers. But it's pretty easy to fix when you forget.

I recommend this!

Pros

Useful product that helps in the daily work. It basically tracks the work you do over the day/week/month.., however it does more- you can set up billing and routine tasks to calculate how much time was spent on a project and decide how to charge client. Great product for monitoring the work of employees!

Cons

Pricing could be an issue, however you can use the free trial and check if it fits your business needs before paying

Quality Invoicing: Easy

Pros

The ability to schedule reoccurring invoices and integrate online payment is a game changer for any freelancer or small business.

Cons

Desktop is the way to go, the mobile app has limited functionality, in a world where phones are the size of computers that hardly seems necessary.

Harvest is the Best Software for Tracking Any Type of Project

Pros

- Tracking your time couldn't be easier with Harvest. There are timers to start/stop and automatically track your time to a task within a project.
- You can track expenses across multiple projects with multiple employees.
- You can track how much time each employee works on a specific task and how long they have worked in a week

Cons

- Employees need to be committed to properly tracking their time, tasks, etc. otherwise you won't get accurate results.

Accurate, like a german

Really useful app with (a few) lack of functionality.

Pros

Ease of use, it' colors, I can count time on a really accurate way.

Cons

Sometimes I really had problem with Harvest, I cannot check the full month not only reading Project/Tasks but notes too. Perhaps I use it on a wrong way. If yes, that this is also info for developers.

I used to use this software tools for my team as well as for my other team from 2014 to 2017. I should appreciate Harvest team for this amazing online time management tools which are helping now millions of people to track the time including multiple features. I especially love their friendly eye-catching interface including time tracking options feature. I used to submit my all project times I had spent easily without any tension as it showing real time. Pretty amazing!

Pros

1. simple website design with eye-catching visualization for the essential option.
2. Can be integrated almost any latest software tools like Asana(I used to do this) is amazing sync
3. Reminder for time tracking and project reminder including project owner.
4. Can control and create layer like approval method

Cons

1. Very Pricy in terms of the competitors on the market
2. Need AI support to catch auto standard time frame for each project.
3. Apps crashed and lost time sometimes without an unknown error
4. Should work on popular project time analysis to make real-time auto time support
