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.

Part of my everyday

My day is better organized, and I'm aware of my time spends with Toggl, I started using it because an agency in which I was working compelled us to use it.... now I'm not on that agency anymore, but Toggle is part of my days

Pros

Ease of use, you don't need to read a manual for it.... it's truly friendly, and on top of that, the UI is not cluttered, you have access to everything but doesn't choke you out... I love:

- The way to continue tasks quickly (if I had a break, and then continue, not need to typing)
- The timer works even you're offline
- Organization by clients/projects

Cons

I can barely think of anything I didn't like of it.... I miss something however, the ability to "tag" the tasks, that would be great to me as freelance, been able to say which time of the month I've spent in sales, management, coding... it would be a great add, at least to me.

Toggl gives you insights you can't see otherwise

Toggl has been an invaluable asset to our company.

Pros

The transparency feature of Toggl has been invaluable to our company. It has created a degree of efficiency that we didn't think possible before it's implementation.

Cons

There were some complaints from employees about a certain "Big Brother" aspect of the software, but it's really serving it's purpose fully in that respect and those are personal opinions.

Super easy time tracker

Toggl has given me the ability to easily track my hours on projects whenever I need to, and produce reports that I then base my billing on.

Pros

I don't always have jobs where I need to track my billable hours, but when I do, I use Toggl. I find it extremely easy to use, with both a desktop and a mobile app. If I am working on multiple different projects at the same time, I can add those projects to Toggl and track my hours separately. Toggl understands that as humans, we can sometimes forget to turn the timer on or off, so I love the ways it helps me along by suggesting I turn my timer on if it I am on a window that seems to be project-related, and if my computer has no activity for 15 minutes it will ask me whether to discard that time as well. It's also easy to add manual entries. Finally, it is super easy to generate hours and activities reports for any time period.

Cons

I honestly can't think of anything I don't like about Toggl or that could be better - it really just does what I need it to.

Extremely simple and great tracking tool

Great, it allowed us to calcule how much do we earn on every project and where we're wasting our time.

Pros

Simplicity. Toggl is very simple and has a great user interface. When we're onboarding people they get how Toggl works in seconds. On the other hand it is as complex as it should be to make it useful for analysis and time tracking. Really great piece of software.

Cons

The price - Toggl is really expensive if you want to expand it for your whole team. While it is possible to use several workspaces it is becoming painful when the team is growing. And then, the price is very high for time tracking tool.

The best app for tracking time I've found

Pros

I like how easy it is to use. You can just click on play and it already starts logging your time, and you can add information about clients and projects later. Also you can just start logging by clicking on a previous entry.

Cons

I couldn't find any faults yet. I use Toggl to track work hours as I'm a freelancer and it's working really well so far.

Good but not great

Pros

Has mobile app, web extensions, easy to use (1 button app). Reporting is available for free.

Cons

I was little shocked why there are no competitors almost on this market. Toggl has some bugs that are not fixed. The reporting is good but some are little strange where you export just 1 item instead of a list.

Simple and Favorite time keeping app!

Pros

I love toggl. It's so focused on what it's meant to be; a time tracking app. I've tried a number of apps like this and they all require a lot of clicks or taps to get it started. This one is simple and had the least number of steps to start tracking. The mobile app is just like the website so there's no trouble in using either platform. It just simply works and helps track the work.

Cons

One feature wish is that it would track what programs you use. I've seen some productivity apps that track what apps or programs you are using and for how long, having this and a project timer would be ideal for tracking not only how long you are working on something but also which programs you have to use most in project.

The best tracking system experience ever!

A very simple application that gives the opportunity to integrate it with other applications such as Asana or Trello.

Pros

Toggl is a great tool that I met while working in the current company. That's a real pitty that I did not know it before. Toggl is both a desktop and web application that measures the time of individual tasks. It is useful especially for people who work for hours or simply want to know how much time it takes them to complete particular stages of work.

Cons

Web app needs to sync with the Internet and offline it's useless.

Amazing time tracker

I love Toggl! I highly recommend it to any freelancer who is being paid hourly and wants to show their clients exactly where their money is going. It's also a wonderful productivity tool if you're looking for a way to track your time and understand how to become more productive.

Pros

Toggl is the best time tracker I've ever used. It's free, you can sort by task, project, and client, and you can print out impressive summaries to share with your clients so they know exactly what you did to complete their project. It's also a great internal tool for understanding where your time is going on a daily basis.

Cons

The desktop app didn't work very well on my Mac. I ended up deleting it and only using the website.

Timekeeping made easy

Pros

It’s so easy to use. Literally press the start and stop button when you start and finish what you’re doing. Even when you forget, it’s prompts you. And if you remember later, you can also edit the entries or post one belatedly.

Cons

The prompts while useful can become annoying when you use the computer for non-work related matters too.

TOGGL takes seconds and let you bill more hours

Getting started with TOGGL is super easy. There's almost nothing to set up. You just start adding time blocks to your day. It's best to do it daily so you don't forget. At the end of the month (or whenever you want to review/report time), capturing totals by project and client is easy. I use screen shots as proof of service to clients.

Pros

TOGGL works wherever I am (desktop or phone).
TOGGL lets me add new clients and projects on the fly without changing screens.
TOGGL gives me detailed reports for any kind of billing I need to do.

Cons

I'd like TOGGL to be smarter (maybe these are feature suggestions) like read my calendar and mail to suggest time blocks to capture for billing and reporting so that I don't have to do everything on my own.

I've used Toggl withcontractors

Pros

I've used Toggle with 3rd party contractors. As someone who outsources, I have respect for those who can show me where their time has been spent. I definitely recommend for small and large teams.

Cons

No cons as of now. I wasn't an actual user, but a 3rd party/client who was shown where the time on my project was spent.

Toggl, time tracking made simple

It has been our time tracking software for years. Loads of extensions make it easy to integrate with common software.

Pros

The minimalistic approach. Tracking time can be an unexpectedly cumbersome issue...with toggl it is trivial.

Cons

It is slightly expensive in some plans. The reports could use some improvements.

The best for managing billable work

Pros

- The desktop app is amazing and makes switching between tasks a breeze.
- The reporting features are top-notch.
- Even the free version has good options for customization of tasks you want to track.

Cons

- The app is clunky and not nearly as easy to use as the website and desktop app.

Elegant time tracking app

I am juggling a handful of hourly clients successfully and pulling reports that I can tack onto my invoices.

Pros

It's an elegant way to manage multiple projects and clients.

Cons

Sometimes clicking into edit an existing time entry can be tedious when there were small breaks between multiple work stints.

Writing Toggl Review... Start

Toggl as a time management tool has changed my work day in many ways, and has generally made me a more productive person. I can see not only what I'm working on, but I can get a feeling for how productive I've been on any given day just by calculating how much time I tracked against how long I was at my desk. Further, as a consultant, it makes it easier for me to validate the time I'm billing for customer projects.

Pros

Toggl makes it easy to see where I'm spending my time, and also where I'm wasting it.

The desktop widget makes it very easy to quickly enter what I'm working on, and to start/stop the clock.

Cons

Toggl makes it easy to see where I'm spending my time, and also where I'm wasting it.

For me, it's very easy to forget to enter what I'm doing when I start, or to leave the time running when I leave my desk for the day.

Great at Time Tracking

Simple software that just works. I highly recommend.

Pros

I liked how simple this app is to track time. I kept it on my phone and would simply have to open it up and hit start (and the appropriate project). Once tracked, it was simple to view progress on each project and keep track of billable hours. It even has an export mode for exporting the data to PDF, etc.

Cons

Integration with other time tracking or payment resources would be nice. For example, integration into Paypal to send a client the billable hours info and automatically send them a bill for the number of hours times the pay per hour would be nice.

Track your time and productivity either paid or free?

I have been using Toggl for tracking my time and productivity for a few clients and they provide information to identify what you are to focus on.

Pros

Free trial provides access to most of its important features. You can create a workspace for each client and have your tasks arranged per client or project.

Cons

A litle pricey but once you identify how it could help you, you will realize it is worth it.

A great tool for freelancers.

Pros

When I do freelance jobs, Toggl it’s a great way to organize myself and to keep my client informed about his design, it also provides a way to demonstrate to my client that I have worked the hours that I’m stating. The software it’s simple and can be used on web, desktopp or app, this makes it available on the go or in my office, it’s pretty easy and intuitive to categorize everything that you do and to blend work hours on the same proyect.

Cons

I didn’t really understand how to limit myself with time using this software, what I mean is, I would like to keep track of it, but also to stop me for working too much, it would be great to have an option to configure a work schedule, if such option exists I couldn’t find it or understood how to do it.
