The small price and big function. I went through a lot of options and free trials to find a project management tool that offers as much for as little. The time tracking and reporting work fantastic. They keep slowly improving and adding functionality.

Likes Least

There are a few minor glitches that really irk me from time to time but they are trivial. It doesn't seem like there is a way to set preferences for window views so every time I log back in I have to reset the view (shut off the archive items, set the view to go from newest date on reports, things like that). Nothing that has been close to a deal breaker for me.

Recommendations

There are a lot of bells and whistles here that I don't even use and haven't ever explored - dig around. They have a free tier that lets you use everything and try everything for as long as you need to. It's well worth exploring.

Pros

One of the features that I like the most here which I have not seen before in the tools which I used to work with is Gantt Chart. Thanks to this function I can see all the tasks on one timeline and bindings between them. The Kanban board realized quite well, nothing superfluous, just everything that you need for successful managing of your projects and synchronizing working process with all your possible partners. All the system decorated in a modern way and it is just a pleasure to work in it.

Cons

There was actually one problem recently. Sometimes I’m out of range of network access and the mobile application allows you to work offline and after connection with the internet, it will just transport everything that you’ve done to your system. But once it just disappeared, I don’t know because of which reasons, but thankfully it never happened again.

save time collecting all the worked hours. automated payment reminders.
very simple in setting up the clients and todos

Pros

Straight forward the main tools that we were looking for. no complicatet options that nobody needs. there are clients, projects, tasks, time tracking and invoicing. yes other tools offer extended chat and communication options. our clients want the work done and not a chat report...

Cons

the time tracking on the smarthpone is not so transparent. you need to go to the projects to be shure you picked the right client. but maybee it is something we did not figure out by now...

This software has a really nice dashboard view.

Pros

I really like the Dashboard view for this software. It has all of the important information and the layout is great. I also like that this software has a timesheet module and a very nice accounting area. I also like the fact that this software has a mobile app available.

Cons

I think a risk management area would be nice or at least an issue tracking area. It does have the ability to share files so it can be uploaded but I would like the module to be integrated and have the ability to share with the team.

Everything I was looking for

Pros

Simplicity, click and you can start or stop the task you want to work on.
The dashboard is really interesting and it captures the best features all in one page.
The fact that you can choose from so many invoice options based on country specifics also makes this amazing.

Cons

Sometimes cache is not refreshed accordingly, but that can easily be fixed, on page refresh it's alright, so I would not say it is an actual issue.

No-hassle time keeping and project management.

Pros

Ease of use, organizes well, clear and useful functions, customizable, and editable data. Convenient email submission feature. Also, plugins for desktop applications (which I have yet to explore, but are a good idea.)

Cons

Some invoicing feature should be added, like a summary of billed time, organized by days instead of items (I've been asked for this by clients and have to edit manually.) Also, mobile functions don't always transfer to the online account (e.g. tasks added via mobile 'might' save, but may not reflect time.)

Paymo can track time automatically in the background or through a timer. Times can be adjusted and works well in billing clients.

Pros

I absolutely love Paymo Plus! I've never been able to work with stopwatch-like time trackers so having Paymo Plus run in the background tracking my time spent on client projects is amazing. It runs all the time and at the end of the day, I simply allocate the entries to my different client projects. And being able to not just check how much time I spent on a day, in a week, month or year, but also per project, client or task is priceless.

Cons

I don't use the task and project management features at all and the same goes for the invoicing. More specialised app are better for that.

I'm trying to use this software and i want to say good things. I am just not having the best luck with it.

Pros

I like that there is a pro gram that will walk you thru a project. I am writing my first book and I bought this soft ware to try and keep myself organized.

Cons

Maybe, I 'm doing something wrong, but I just don't think it is as user friendly as it says that it is. The functions that are offered are great in theory, but if you can't figure out how to use them, they're worthless. I'm not saying the product is worthless, I'm just saying I'm not having good luck with it.

Pros

Capacity to send invoices by email via Paymo. The Time Sheets is easy to use and I can easily create invoices afterwards. I like having access to the reports, which help me monitor how well my business is doing.

Cons

Would like more possibilities to adapt each invoice either in French or English to be able to write Email Templates either in French or English (now I have to write it in both languages in the same Email, which is not very personal) or to be able to insert a rate PER client directly in the Clients File.

It got me paid on time.

Pros

I like that its fairly fast to get my hours in.
I really like that I can generate reports for basically any period of time.

Cons

I like to add my daily hours weekly and have to keep selecting Add Time after each entry. So it would be nice if the add screen stayed up until I closed it.

Clear and easy tracking of the time spent on projects within the company.

Pros

The reports are great, they help you to clearly see the time spend on projects and tasks.
Time tracking available from desktop and from the mobile app helps us track the time spend on tasks with real ease.

Cons

The only thing I would improve is scheduling (to make it as in real calendar) with specific hours not only a day. But it's a minor. Overall feeling is great :)

Pros

The Windows widget is fantastic, very easy to use. The integration between the widget and the online log in is impressive.
The customer service through phone or online chat is quick and helpful.
The focus is on efficient and complete time tracking. Other software seemed focused on making sure employees are actually working, but this is truly focused on making sure your time spent working is being captured so you can accurately bill for it.
Manually adjusting time at the end of the day is quick and very easy.

Cons

Same pricing structure regardless on the user (i.e. same pricing for each user whether full user, user only recording time, admin only doing billing, etc.)

Transparency of time taken to complete regular tasks and easier billing method.

Pros

Stopwatch/time recording feature. Works better on mobile and tablets than any other package out there. Overall price vs features is excellent with good work-arounds for the price conscious and a suite of everything you need for those with deep pockets.

Cons

They are still improving the software regularly and are a young company in Paymo's development. The most annoying thing to us was that task lists set up in workflow order on the PC come up in alphabetical order on mobile devices.

Pros

We're able to manage client projects, tasks, deadlines, and timesheets, which is transforming the way we coordinate and manage short- and long-term tasks. It's provided much-needed structure.

Paymo has additional capabilities that we haven't yet taken advantage of -- reporting, for example. In 2018, we look forward to exploring all of Paymo's features and optimizing our use of its capabilities.

Cons

Some aspects of Paymo's use weren't intuitive to our team, and we had to receive some training to take advantage of some of its capabilities. However, that training was very easy to come by, and Paymo's support has been very responsive.
