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.

Pros

I love that there's an app so if I'm on a computer without Toggl already installed I can start it on the app and it integrates with all my projects. It's been a lifesaver in keeping track of my hours for clients, it's very easy to use.

Cons

The only complaint I have is the projects and clients options always seemed a little redundant to me. I only ever used one option because it was a little confusing to implement the other. Also, on the app it doesn't necessarily let you select which client or project to bill the time to, you have to go back and manually change it.

Pros

You can use the Chrome plug in to do quick time capture. You can organize chronologically and assign colors to projects to visually help sort them out.

Cons

When you request a report and you're on a team, sometimes their hours show up on your interface, skewing some data. It's easy to make errors with how you log your time because the enter fields aren't always obvious.

Pros

Toggl is an amazing program for time tracking. As a freelancer, I often need to track my time on individual tasks and projects. Toggl was a great choice for me personally. I love the ability to add multiple projects (clients) as well as subtasks to track. Using Toggl has made it so much easier to have an accurate representation of how much time it actually takes for each project.

Cons

Like any time-tracking device, it is easy to forget to turn off the timer when you've finished a task. With the desktop app, I've found it easier to monitor when the app is tracking as opposed to using the browser version.

Pros

It's super easy to use and can be mastered within a couple hours. Great for tracking a teams project workload and task completion.

Cons

The only downside to it being so simple to use, navigate and master is the fact that it seriously limits what all your allowed to do on it. To improve this, it needs alot more functionality.

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.

quick project management information

Pros

Toggl is easy to use web-based solution. It's great to keep the most important project information in one place. There are useful options like:
- timer
- dashboard
- report
- insights.
I can manage projects in many ways:
- projects
- clients
- team
- workspace
- tags
It's easy way to answer question about projects.
If it's necessarily - data can be exported in many formats:
- PDF
- csv
- Excel.
I use Excel export to create pivot tables, to present data in complex views.
Toggl has many options to filter data and present as reports & dashboard, so I can specific information quickly.

Cons

It would be interesting to see more options to present information - maybe based on group of information, like mind maps structures with context complex data.

It's easy to use and does what you'd expect in a time tracker. Clean interface and a few clicks and you're on your way. Has built in idle feature, rounding and good reporting.

Cons

Nothing glaring. Would like the continue function to offer a choice setting as sometimes I forget which client I'd doing work for and need to go back and edit.

Pros

Just the right amount of functionality for me so that I can keep things organized. Many integrations from chrome to mobile so that I can track from anywhere. The idle time notification with an option to delete is also key for me! If I forget to stop tracking I can just delete one I get back to my computer.

Being able to look at the entire team's time tracking in one place is very helpful when trying to manage the workload and complete end of month reporting.

Pros

I love the ability to review the whole team's time tracking from one place. The reports are easy to use and tell me exactly what I need to know. It was very easy to get started and set up the team and give everyone access.

Cons

I would like the data entry to be easier. There is an Excel/CSV template that can be use for bulk loading, but the date format that Toggl is expecting is not the standard date format that Excel will use when saving the CSV. So you end up having to go back and reformat the date column.

I like both apps - the desktop and the mobile one for their ease of use. I like the fact that you can see all the recent projects you worked on and you can just press a button to start tracking any one of them.
I also like the fact that you can see in a second how many hours you worked today, without needing to go to the reports section.
I like how you can filter the reports by day, week, client - this is very helpful.

Cons

Unlike another tracking software I use, Toggle doesn't show you the apps/programs/websites you used when working on a certain project.

When I started out as a freelancer, this was a great system for tracking my time. It is easy to flag time blocks by project, so you can manage your bandwidth and see any outliers that are taking more time than they should.

Cons

You can only create billable time sheets with the upgraded version, so if you aren't interested in upgrading you will have to do that manually. I also wish there was a way to set time limits instead of just an ongoing stopwatch, like with the Pomodoro timer.

Optimised my expenses and helped me create better ballparks.

Pros

Simple and easy to use. Has "enough" features. Lightweight, with a great mobile app. Elegant. Keyboard shortcuts makes it a breeze to use. Killer feature - if you forget to turn it off, it tells you you've been inactive for X time and asks you what to do with it.

Cons

Can be a bit spammy with tracking notifications. Although they made the app faster and more stable, haven't seen any upgrade feature wise (not sure if this is really a con)

When I first heard about it I couldn't actually understand what it could be used for. But now I see how it can help self-employed people have a better understanding of the value of their time, but actually, its main use for me is how pressing the start button seems to help me focus on what I have to do at that moment.

Cons

I feel like the iOS app is a bit lacking, it has received a major overhaul recently, but it still isn't great, lacking an Apple Watch app doesn't make sense to me either.
