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.

Supported Operating System(s):
Windows 7 , Windows Vista , Windows XP , Mac OS , Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 2000 , Windows 8 , Windows 10

    Pros

    - Ease of use
    - Intuitive and beautiful design
    - Best way to keep focused and on track

    Cons

    Nothing really bad to say. The software works as intended and flawlessly at that!

    I use Toggl to track ALL my time, not just billable hours. That gives me a solid sense of how I'm investing my time doing business development, creating new tools/presentations, doing client work, and learning. The interface was recently (Q3, 2018) updated to make time tracking easier (especially when you're making entries for prior days (super useful when traveling).

    Pros

    It's about time somebody introduced a timekeeping tool that works with people and not against them. Toggl lets me track time manually (I set the days/hours) or automatically (when I click start, it starts timing). I like how I can track time to any internal or external project and see reports of all kinds. Thanks to the easy-to-read reports, end-of-period billing to clients is super easy.

    Cons

    I didn't like having to load up all the categories and clients up front when I started using Toggl. However, Toggl makes it easy to change things--even on the fly. Now that I'm into it, I just add new categories on the fly. It takes like 10-15 seconds.

    Toggl helps my company charge for work we do, it keeps track of the software used during the time too so we can take out any excess time that was accidentally spent on other things

    Pros

    Toggl is ridiculously easy to use. Install the Mac app (it's awesome) and then just click toggl. It's that easy

    Cons

    I think maybe project management could be better

    Pros

    Toggl allows me to track the hours that I have spent on each task that I'm working on. I like it because just in case that I forgot to turn on the tracker while working, I can simply turn it on right away and edit the time logged later. The report feature of Toggl allows you to see how much time you have spent on similar tasks, how much hours did you spend on that day for a certain client and how many hours can you bill your client for the week or for the month.

    Cons

    The only thing with Toggl is it doesn't take screenshots which is actually helpful to add credibility to work monitoring.

    We have employees that use the Toggl Chrome extension and others using the desktop version. We also have it on our mobile devices. We run reports for payroll and we run reports to see how much time we spend doing a, b or c, and therefore, we are able to see what profit or loss we accumulated on a specific project, based on our original quote. It's not too complex nor too simple to meet our needs.

    Pros

    Toggl allows an employer to see all employees' details in one "team" location. The reports are wonderful. Toggl is easy to use. It connects well with other tools like Asana. Very few (if any) glitches/bugs on the important things. Aesthetically clean and easy to navigate. Updates quickly. I receive a weekly report of hours worked, classified by time spent per project. Great tagging system. Allows you to list your clients and projects so that everything stays organized. You can also add a description for any entry. Can easily pick up where you left off without having to re-enter the details of what you're working on. Great searching feature that allows you to see all work done in a time period, by group of employees, with certain key word or with one or multiple tags.

    Cons

    It would be nice if you could customize the reports more. For example, I would like to print a PDF of a report showing all time entries but not showing who was the user for each entry. There have also been some features that I've struggled to figure out how to navigate or turn off and on. For example, Toggl started creating a new entry every time I paused and resumed instead of resuming the same entry. Once resolved, it has worked great, but it took me a while to figure out what setting was causing the issue.

    Lots of integrations for the most popular task management platforms and software allow to not forget to start the tracking. Pretty simple to set up and tune for the whole team.

    Cons

    The overall quality isn't that good - at least once per week it crashes right in a browser or loses the name of the task tracked. Report tool has no option to export the report with merged duplicates, so I have to do it manually to provide meaningful reports to the client.
    Another problem is an Android app, which tends to crash really often.

    Fantastic, simple usage with great reporting features! Easy to keep track of your time with, great tool.

    Pros

    I love the reporting and that you can easily share projects/see your colleagues' contribution to the same project or task! Very helpful when tracking time of overall project hours.

    Cons

    Sometimes I scope out the day in advance (knowing i'll have a meeting at 12 for an hour, for example) but when I open it i again, it won't have saved.

    Overall, even just using the free app, I'm doing an excellent job tracking my hourly efforts which helps me as a freelancer to stay efficient, bill accurately, and estimate jobs smarter next time. If it was estimated to take me 10 hours to finish a $1K job, every hour over 10 means I made less than I should have and cheated only myself.

    Pros

    How easy it is to toggle between projects. If it required fewer clicks for me to denote what I'm working on, it would probably be reading my mind. I also love the "you've been idle" feature that reminds me I was wasting a little too much time getting coffee.

    Cons

    My only wish is to be more certain that the extension within Google Drive is accurately syncing with the desktop version. I love anything that works within GSuite, where I live 9-5 M-F, but when I check my hourly reports throughout the week, I'm sometimes unclear that the in-Drive-documents timer button connected accurately.

    Pros

    It has a simple design and no extra knowledge is needed to operate this application. It gets into work the very moment a task is set up. This application can help you build a systematic life and improve your business doings. Even the free version shows complete justice to the user. On a specific day, it displays the complete list of things performed orderly. Its support line is very interactive and helpful. The graphical representation of your time spent can give a more detailed study over your schedule.

    Cons

    It contains quite a number of bugs. It cannot be used without internet. While many other similar applications work offline, this particular feature is a major con. History cannot be seen unless a report is produced. It does not get along with Google Calendar. There is no feature to integrate the events from the latter to the former.

    The best tracking time software with low consuming resources.

    Pros

    This tracking for time software will let you manager your time and the one of your team. With top quality reports, divided by time spent by tasks. This will let you have control over the usage of your working time. And also it's not resource consuming.

    Cons

    Probably it just need some extra features, like taking screenshots from time to time. Appart from that, it's totally awesome.

    I credit our use of Toggl as a primary driver in getting additional resources in our department. We were able to visually prove how much time was spent on entry level tasks by staff who were trained to do much higher level tasks. We used the data collected from Toggl to advocate for an entry level staff person to free time up for others to work on higher level, more big picture work.

    Pros

    Very easy to set-up and use. You can create projects and group tasks together to get an idea for a given week how much time you spent in meetings, on a project, or working on specific tasks. It allowed me to advocate for myself and my team for additional resources as we were able to prove how much time we spent on a weekly basis doing tasks that could be delegated or improved. The ability to provide my leadership team a visual representation of my time and my staffs time was invaluable during budgeting and resource allocation time. You were able to manually enter time if you forgot to start your clock or end the clock. Toggl has countless integrations so you're always able to start and stop time and accurately record your time from any device, anywhere.

    Cons

    No major issues to report. Obviously, it's incumbent upon the user to record their time accurately. Overall, the experience was tremendous and I have not complaints.

    I have used Toggl quite a bit for work purposes and tracking my travel and work times as well as tracking times for employees and it is so easy to use! You simply have to turn on the timer and when you are done, can turn it off and easily describe what you are doing for your employer.

    Cons

    I think a few times I had an issue with my times that I recorded missing and that was a bit inconvenient but other than that, it worked fine. Just to be sure to check every week that your times are recorded just in case.

    Track time quickly and efficiently with the option to generate a report.

    Pros

    Toggl has been the time-tracking solution used in almost every company I've worked with and I still use it as a freelancer.

    The UI is easy to use and integrates with everything from Zapier to Jira. Features cover everything you would need for straightforward time reporting. You can track, edit, tag the time logs and when it's time to invoice you can generate a report.

    In the paid version you can use Toggl to send the invoice, but the free version works fine too if you're okay with switching between multiple apps.

    Overall a great option for freelancers, contractors, and anyone who just needs to track their billable and non billable hours in a way they can show in a professional format.

    Cons

    Moving to a paid subscription is pricier than most would like. I also found the constant popups rather annoying after a while, but I'm using the free version after all.

    Pros

    I love being able to brain map what I am thinking. It is so cool. It made a visual representation of some projects that I had in my mind so that I could illustrate them easily to others.

    Cons

    I wish that I could do more color coding on the free version. I am still fooling around with it so I don't know what else I'd like to change.
