    Pros

    The nice thing about FunctionFox is that it is simple to use and does a good job with tracking projects. The built in function that allows email messages to be sent to people working on projects is a great feature.

    Cons

    The software seemed a little over the top. Many of the available functions seemed kind of unnecessary and just cluttered the space. That would be my only complaint, but perhaps there is a market where the additional functions are used.

    Tracks time and makes it easy for people to log their hours. Produces higher quality reports than other tools. Has built in intelligence to detect start and end dates of projects.

    Pros

    FunctionFox has a great ability to slice and dice information on timed tasks once they are captured. I also have really enjoyed the email reminders on days when you don't log time. Overall, it seems to work consistently, once everything is set up.

    Cons

    User interface is confusing for most new users. A lot of the information shows on the lower half of the screen which is non-intuitive and creates confusion. The setup can be a little tedious and integrations with other tools (such as ticketing systems, salesforce) would be valuable.

    The customer service is 13/10, it's so good. I looked at several Project Management Systems, and this was the easiest to get started in. The learning curve for other systems was too steep for how quickly I needed to implement an organization system.

    Pros

    Super easy to jump in and start using the features. Easy to look at project info. Definitely helpful in staying organized and managing my time.

    Cons

    There are some places I feel like I should be able to click through to see more information, like clicking on a project's timeline to view scheduled actions.

    When dealing with clients and billing them, this is a great product. It's reasonably priced, easy to use and improves our billing, which helps not only our company, but gives our clients the assurance that we are billing appropriately and accurately.

    Pros

    This product keeps track of all of my notes on my clients' projects. This helps to ensure that my billing is accurate.

    Cons

    This product is not accessible when the internet is down. It would be great to have a resident version on my computer when internet is out.

    Great time tracking/management software.

    Pros

    Very easy to use and intuitive time tracking software. Great reporting features. We use this to track time for 15 employees and never had a problem.

    Cons

    Because this is web based it sometimes locks up or we can't access it if our internet is out. A very minor problem that rarely happens.

    I like the detailed reporting, the action assignment process, the time entry process, and the ease of entering estimates.

    Cons

    It's a little tricky teaching people to use the software when they first start their job at my agency - we utilize learn as you go "training." Maybe the help center could compile all of their articles into one giant article like a giant FunctionFox guide for new users.

    For product quality and customer service I highly recommend.

    Pros

    Function Fox is a brilliant product. I needed a strong project management software to manage a team and multiple clients as well as detailed reporting. Function Fox has a beautiful layout that's easy to use and their customer service is amazing.

    Cons

    I really wanted to love this product because of the amazing bundle of options. Although they offer invoicing as an add-on, they do not integrate with Paypal or allow for automated invoicing which was a deal breaker for me.

    Cons

    I think that the color scheme needs to stand out a bit more. The screen is really monotone. It is all grey and white. I think there should be some dark undertones for things to stand out.

    Pros

    We love this software, it's quick, easy and very cost effective. We easily input our data into it, the fields are all editable so is bespoke to us. We haven't had to ask for much support as the software is so easy to use, but when we did the help was fast, helpful and friendly.

    Function Fox has made the studio run far more efficiently, team members can book jobs in quickly and time sheets are super fast. The retainer option has been really useful too, we can also report on staff productivity and ensure timesheets are being filled out.

    Cons

    Having worked with the software for a few months I cannot find any flaws with it, we researched many CRM software solutions and most were too expensive or too complex for our needs, Function Fox gives us the option to have a basic CRM system with add-ons available if we want to expand features.

    I would say this product is a good start to time tracking for your team. This can give you a lot of productivity information if you look at the reporting regularly.

    Pros

    I like that you can start something and later come back to it in order to add more time and adjust if necessary. If you integrate the accounting aspect I believe you can also lock down edits after you have processed payroll.

    Cons

    It doesn't integrate a lot of other pieces of software with it. I believe this product didn't have any connectivity with the offline version of quickbooks to auto create invoices.

    I would love to have the ability to post time on multiple projects at once. This would help when the same projects are being done for multiple projects and time just needs to be split.

    FunctionFox helped us easily track our time. The stop/go clock icon is awesome. From tracking our time so well, we are able to see how long projects actually take, which helps in estimating costs and making sure our pricing is accurate.

    The help menu needs to be improved. And I am limited as to the number of clients that appear in the timekeeping section. I have to archive clients before I can add new ones because the new ones will not show up in the timekeeping section. I would like more features.

    What I like most about this is the email alerts when you are approaching the limit on a specific project. This is great to give our producer a heads up when hours reach a specific threshold.

    I thought that the interface for entering time was more complicated than I would like for our end users. Sometimes all you want for a use is the hours and the job, and not bother them with entering any other info
