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

As a small business owner, it's important to price your work comparably. Many of us don't actually realize how long it takes to create something, or to finish a freelance job, so we undersell ourselves. Paymo allows me to track my time, and send those timesheets to the client. You can have multiple projects, which is great for me. I also use it for author conventions, to track my assistants so I can pay them within days of the event.

Cons

I do wish they'd bundle invoicing with the main free plan, even if that bumps it up a few dollars a month. There's no reason to have a system meant to bundle 3 products into one if you have to pay extra because some are 'add-ons'.

The main reason for switching to this software is that it allowed my entire team to track time. After using the software for a few months, there have been several benefits from using the software:
- Interface is very clean and allows to track much more data that I was able to do before.
- As stated in the pros, one of the best feature of the software is that it allows users to create task lists individual for each project. This allows our office to set up each project exactly per the contract. This keeps a tight control on the time spent on the project and allows tracking of additional services that are not part of the original contract.
- I am working on the invoice template for the office. If i am able to set this up correctly, invoicing time would be reduced significantly each month.
- The ability to track time directly out of the windows environment is great.
- I am not using the time tracking feature on my phone, mostly because i spend a lot of time sitting at a desk, however other people in the office are using this feature and are happy with it.
- Next step for us is to start implementing control on billable hours per user. This will allow us to control billable time and help organize employee time and work.

Pros

I have looked at several options for my company and decided on Paymo for the following reasons:
- The software has a very clean and intuitive interface
- One of the best features is how you can customize how projects are set up and tracked. You generate a task list that is checked off as you move trough the project. This is an amazing feature that organizes the project while it tracks it. It took a lot of effort to re-design how my company tracks project but in the end I am very happy with results.
- Pricing system is fair and scalable.
- The software comes with a windows desktop application. It also has a more advanced feature where it automatically calculates how your time is used -I have not tired this yet because I don't think it would work for my office.
- The ability to enter the time on a weekly calendar is fantastic. The software also has a bulk time add feature if needed.
- I am able to export all of the data in CSV format
- You are able to invoice directly out of the software - I have not been able to set up this feature yet but i am working with the support team to figure out how to make it work for my company.
- The software has several features that I have not been able to implement yet.
- Customer support has been great, answer is usually within an hour or two directly from the developers.

Cons

Below is a list of some of the limitations i have encountered using the software.
- The calendar time-sheet input is great, but it should allow drag-paste feature. This would make entering time so much faster. Not a deal breaker, because in the end time input is fairly quick.
- I was not able to import the data from my previous time-sheet software. I would like to see the option to import bulk time from an excel spreadsheet if needed. This is not a critical feature, but I have several years worth of data, that for now have to keep in a different software.
- The software comes with some standard invoice formats, it does take some effort to create custom templates. Architectural service invoices tend to be fairly complicated, I have not been able to set up the invoices as I would like yet. Support is working with me on this issue, so hopefully I can report back once I have it all setup.
- You can create custom reports for anything you want, so getting the data out is not a problem however I find that the process is a bit more tedious than what I was accustomed to before. To be fair I still need to learn the software.

Paymo makes tracking time a breeze with great management features and role capabilities. Absolutely love the granular control on the reports and ability to manage users, projects, tasks and more. Support has always been super helpful - only contacted them twice in the last 4 years though...so that should say something. Shop approved!

Pros

We've been using Paymo in our web development shop now for years. We love the time tracking widget and always have it up on our desktops or phone to track the time we spend bouncing from project to project. Forgot to turn off the timer? No problem - can easily fix it and be on your way. Setting up projects, tasks, user management - all a breeze. The Paymo team keeps coming out with new features and what used to be just a time tracking tool is now becoming a full on project management tool. We're actually looking to expand how we use Paymo very soon...

Cons

For how we're using it right now, we don't use all the project management features and have found that PaymoWidget 4.0.19 actually works better for what we need presently. As we move our org forward though, we'll be adopting their newest widget.

As a general manager it allows me to see what project my staff are working on while they are based on other states ad also allows me to review their performance based on their hours spent on each project.

Pros

The timer is the best feature in Paymo. It allows to hit start and stop once start working on a project , therefore it is easy to capture hours spent. The fact that those hours can be amended is another beauty of this feature.

Cons

So far I don't have any problem with the software since I am only using this software for less than 6 months.

The ease of time tracking and invoicing saved us a lot of time.

Pros

I like Paymo's time tracking feature. It is very well built. My team is able to switch between tasks easily with its time tracking app. The time report feature helps us to do invoicing, general time tracking, etc.

Cons

I don't like how I can't set and filter tasks based on the tasks status. For example - tasks can have status such as "to do", "in progress", "revise", and "complete".

The software saved lots of time on repetative non-billable tasks. It gives us more control over data and helps us narrow our focus on the parts of projects that need more efficiency.

Pros

Paymo is easy to learn, manage, and use. The price is right for most any size company and the core features are well tuned. It has saved time when preparing timesheets each week and helps us track our hours very efficiently. In a service based industry, a software like Paymo takes the uncertainty out of knowing whether or not you are on target.

The ability to gather vast amounts of data in seconds really has helped analyze our effectiveness at estimating and highlight areas for improvement.

The software's permissions setup and general user interactions are much more suited to a company that has competent employees, unlike competitors like T-sheets (quickbooks). Other time trackers tend to assume the employees are incapable of managing their timesheet and set up a lot of rules that act as roadblocks to efficiency. Paymo maintains control without becoming overbearing.

Cons

The built-in invoicing feature is a little difficult to fully customize. It has "custom" options, but they are not full control. It does allow for custom coding for invoice generation which we are doing now, but this requires someone on staff who is fairly well versed in HTML and other scripts/codes.

I wish that Paymo would talk directly with a desktop version of Quickbooks, but it does work with Quickbooks Online through Zapier Apps.

Managing projects from beginning to end, planning portfolios and associated revenue stream.

Pros

We like most the ease to add clients, projects and tasks . Once setup assigning work to resources applying a budget and mark items as non-billable or billable is great. Following up with time sheets, time reporting and invoicing from with Paymo is a life saver as we now see missed revenue due to managing our time in Paymo correctly. Adding a Statement of work as a project, assigning tasks from the details SOW with billable and non-billable tasks, entering actual time spent allows us to generate an invoice for the SOW that does not affect other projects for the client. We are impressed.

Cons

Compared to the previous cloud previous tool we used there are no items that we find are hindering operating with Paymo. The app is very user friendly.

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...

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.

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.

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.)

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.
