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.

Super easy to use

Wonderful, no real complaints so far and making the switch to Toggl has been great. We have converted most of our team to Togggl and are excited to bring in some of the integrations that come with paid plans to be able to eliminate some of the admin duties and close some of the cracks we find in communication from time to time.

Pros

The lack of ads is wonderful! I use the free version and have found Toggl makes things much simpler for me. The reporting is great and the amount of tools offered in the free version is great. I switched from another product and my reporting of where my time is going has never been more detailed and has helped me keep on track. Tracking time is super quick and easy, especially on task that I do week after week, Toggl stores the information and auto-populates so it saves me those few seconds and gets me working faster. I love it. I also love sending in such a detailed and good looking timesheet each period, way better than just a csv boring spreadsheet. I know we are only scratching the surface with what Toggl can do, hopefully as we grow our Toggl use and team will grow too to be able to streamline even more with their integrations.

Cons

The only thing so far that inconveniences me is the inability to export reports on the Android app. I don't know if that is something that is coming to it eventually, or if that is only available with a different level of plan. But I am 80% of the time mobile and need to send in reports on the go, which isn't too much of a problem that I am always with a laptop. But having to go that extra step does cost me a few minutes here and there. Exporting from mobile would be a huge help.

The simplest and most stress-free time tracking option

Pros

We use Toggl every day to track all of our tasks. The desktop version is really simple with a welcoming UI. It's easy to keep in the corner of your desktop without distracting you from whatever else you're working on.

The mobile app is excellent too. They keep improving it—for instance, in the latest version editing previous time entries was made way easier.

Cons

The desktop app sometimes gets the spinning beach ball of death. Occasionally it won't respond for so long that I have to force quit. Aside from those two complaints, not much is bad. The desktop app will slow down over time as you accumulate time entries; you have to clear the cache to speed it up again. I wish Toggl would automate that process, for instance by removing all time entries older than 2 weeks. Anything longer ago than that I can go online to find.

Best ever time tracking app

Pros

The best part about Toggle is that I can see all my representative detail in one look! The application is basic and direct to utilize and route. We can get to the undertakings by means of work area PC, versatile or any gadget. We can include notes and remarks for every section, subsequently its simple to sort and compose passages. Accessibility highlight is exceptionally hearty, with only a watchword I get every one of the insights about the undertakings. I simply love the manner in which it identifies inert time and tells me if to dispose of it. Base clients like us can utilize the free form, it gives a considerable measure of highlights. You get the opportunity to perceive how well the assignments have advanced on consistent schedule. Indeed, even the essential form has awesome announcing and fare highlights, be it Pdf or word or exceed expectations, no stresses!

Cons

The vast majority of the organizations for the most part incline toward a venture administration framework with a period following module instead of only a period tracker, so if the application would give venture administration as well, it would be simply heavenly! There were circumstances I experienced bugs as I had to go at exchanging between workstations. We can't utilize the device in disconnected mode.

Keeping track of your billable hours has never been easier.

Pros

Toggl allows you to set up a wide variety of customers and projects each with their own tariff per hour, the developers then simply activate the timer when they are working on a clients project and when done, stops the timer to reflect the exact time spent on the described task.

Cons

To fully unlock all the features we would like to use, can become quite a pricey venture as we have discovered so make sure to do proper research beforehand.

Easy to use app for time tracking

Pros

Easy to use, both on mobile and desktop. Have only used it a few times but would recommend to any teams size

Cons

No cons that I can think of. I will continue to use it more but my needs for this are pretty limited.

Toggl uses the best time tracking techniques and technlogy

Pros

Affordable for freelancing workers and startups to monitor everything going though here and there. We can track time at certain points of a given project and can analyse how productive are the employees in the real time. It produce reports very accurately and hence accounting works are also easy as the format is universal. I can manage multiple projects at the same time and can toggle though projects easily.

Cons

It doesn't integrate with Google Calendar and hence project timings should be manually entered. There is no offline tracking feature which makes it difficult to track the time if the PC is offline.

Pros

It's a great way for me to easily track my hours, especially as a self-employed worker

A great simple option for time tracking

Pros

Super simple to use and offers great reporting and being cloud based you can use it from anywhere without worrying about sync issues.

Cons

This is a one trick pony which may not be bad if you only need time tracking and nothing else. I have found that I have two other programs that I already use that offer similar features.

Simple, Easy to Use, and Great for Personal Time Tracking

Toggl has helped solve a real problem for me in the best way possible. It has a stellar design, it does not spam me with unnecessary emails, and I feel productive using it. Try it, I think you'll enjoy it.

Pros

I use the free version of Toggl. It's great and does *exactly* what I need it to. Basically, I log on and hit go and then it starts tracking my time. Yes, it's basically a glorified stopwatch, but where Toggl really shines is what it lets you do with that data.

Though I have not used all of its features, it has a great way to calculate how much you've earned (assuming you are paid hourly). It has a nice dashboard that shows you which tasks you've earned the most from, and it sends you a summary every week.

More importantly, most users can try this out for free and get an idea if they want to go all in.

Cons

I wish more people used it. The software itself has presented literally no problems for me, but my team has not adopted it. That's fine, but it does make using some of the other features impossible.

Great little product

Pros

I used this for a personal experiment, just keeping track of where my time was going, to find weak spots in efficiency. Easy to use and setup, good tracking as well.

Cons

For some reason I kept finding a tracking running from the night before. I don't know if this was on me or if for some reason the ending of a timer is not clear enough. So sometimes I would have to guess when I ended something.

Keeps you on track!

I think it is a great tool for a business, specially when you have to bill for the time that you put into projects.

Pros

I loved that I knew exactly what I used my time for during the day, even the non billable hours. I also liked that for staff that you are supervising, you can measure their improvements in time management.

Cons

When it looks like it is running and working, and it happens that it is not registering anything. This happens when for whatever reason there is a problem with internet connection.

Toggl for Time Keeping

Good. I like the report features provided.

Pros

Managing the time I spend on projects for clients has been easy. It does all the time calculations for me by client and by projects. Makes time-keeping easy with just a couple of clicks! Reports are great.

Cons

Determining the hierarchy for Clients and Projects can be a bit confusing.

Nice simple team time tracking

Pros

Really easy to start tasks. Seems to be geared towards intelligent teams since it doesnt try to prevent modifications to the times in any way

Management requires an attentive admin. Otherwise, its very easy for team projects to get splintered

Does the trick

Toggl does the trick for us. We've used it for grant reporting, and to track remote staff time. When you're a small team but can't be everywhere, it's good to know what your team is working on/how much time they are spending on it.

Pros

Toggl is easy to use for what my team needs it for - which is tracking our hours loosely for grant reporting and project management. I like the tag and project classification system - we use the project function for grant-funded stream, and then the tag for what the activity was. This way I can tell how much time I spent on a grant-funded project over all, and how much was spent on admin, research, etc.

Cons

The timer/default time settings. I find that when trying to log or record time, the default settings aren't very user-friendly. It's easy to accidentally record 26+ hours of work when the AM/PM is not double-checked.

Simple and easy to use

Toggl is such a great, easy, simple way to track time and log it to specific clients and/or types of tasks. I've tried similar software and Toggl is my favorite by far!

Pros

So simple, so easy to use. I especially liked how easy it was to jump back into a task you had previously timed.

Cons

Can't come up with any cons! Toggl is fantastic!

Great Choice for Time Tracking

Pros

I like that I can easily track my time and assign it to categories. It's also very helpful to view the dashboard to see my work broken down by timeframes. Last of all, I like that I can easily export my tracked time if I need to give the report to a supervisor.

Cons

I wish the basic version had a few more features, but I also understand that they need to make money somehow.
