Pros

Harvest has the capability to provide robust job costing reports. We use this to show the profitability of certain clients in detailed reports. It is nice to use Harvest, because it is extremely user friendly for the employees, but has the report complexity that upper level management would like to see.

Cons

Not often, but every once in a while, there are system glitches in user set up. Most often for a user not to have access to certain things when you have allowed them access.

it's as easy to use as a toddler toy, integrated with plenty of software, cute interface and mostly just "there"

Cons

Doesn't stick out as special in any way, doesn't hook you and want you coming back for more. it's not a habit-forming piece of software.

Elegant, Clean and Valuable Time Tracking App - A Staple Product

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

This is a very clean, simple appearing, a non-intrusive app which is actually a very solid and powerful platform. It has the potential to be an indispensable part of modern project-based businesses.

Well, the answer is, this basic time tracking app solves several problems all at once. First of all, Harvest is available on all your devices and computers so, whenever you need to track time...voila there it is. It is super easy to set up and use, zero learning curve needed. It's nicely organized by client, so each project gets placed where it belongs. It has idle time detection to prevent inaccuracies. There are several options for arranging your time-based fees and you can even include your billable expenses. The information is not trapped in Harvest platform so you can import and export clients, invoices and other info to your other systems easily.

You can easily send email invoices directly from your time-keeping records and accept payments online with integrations. In addition to budgeting time, you can also track expenses for each project in order to stay on track, both financially and time management-wise. This software plus Forecast gives you the potential to be increasingly accurate with time estimates for your clients.

Once you take into account all of the software integrations and the API, you really have a valuable central point to manage your business. It helps that this software was developed by a team that had to solve these problems themselves. The company also seems to have good stewardship of the business in social justice and community arenas. I have not yet used the mobile app or API but I am definitely a fan of Harvest!

Pros

-Intuitive user interface
-Cute motivational quotes and illustrations
-Great native desktop experience on the Mac
-Wonderful integrations with other software, including Harvest's Forecast, Xero accounting and Stripe
-A multi-functional API and mobile apps (IOS and Android)!

Cons

- No automated sales tax - or integration with automated sales tax providers (Avalara, Tax Jar, etc.) on invoices
-Team pricing could be better and also would be great if there were a tier between free - two projects and unlimited projects.
-No offline functionality on the desktop

Even though its expensive the functions and work-ability make it worth it.

Pros

This product has may options and is at most time customizable for my needs. They call you back and you get a real person who really tries to fix your issue.

Cons

You have to buy individual licences for each log in and they are pricey. The technical support has to take over your computer which can be a pain, for hours at times if they do not know what they are doing. the other problem, they will spend hours on your computer trying to figure out the issue instead of asking for help which again can be frustrating.

We are heavy users of the invoice generation and team allocation features. Great usability and very straighforward. Helps us organize and execute faster.

A bit pricey since we do not use all the full-stack features so the cost-benefit is biased there. Could have more features based on value based pricing, instead of billable hours or fixed project fees.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support
N/A

With its ease of use and clean UI that is very easy to navigate, I do recommend anyone looking for a good time-tracking app to try this out with the free trial.

Pros

Easy-enough interface. With the time budget input I can easily input the allotted times each project. My team members can see these and those assigned to the tasks can budget their time accordingly for each task/project to keep work within budget. And the total time worked seen on the time entries for the week is great too as it's real time so there's no need to manually add the times. We're using Harvest together with a project management software and it works for us.

Cons

Sometimes team members add or start the Harvest app and the times worked doesn't show on the team management platform we use unless the time was started within the integrated platform. So the team and our client who checks in there cannot see any time worked from Harvest unless they check on harvest directly. Otherwise, this is a very good time-tracking tool.

Value for Money

We like the Orange and White - I know its petty, but in a world of grey-ed out infinitesimally small typeface UIs, Harvest is blunt and to-the-point. After all, who needs Team Members making errors with your TIME!

Pros

The most important factor is Ease of Use and Harvest shines, the second is its integration with 80 of the top of the line of today's work tools. There are tons of features - we use Forecast and find it invaluable for Team Leaders to scope out their week's work-load and delegate. Thirdly, their customer support is brilliant - no muss, no fuss. The added bonus is that adjusting time at task once the timer has been closed is easy, and did I mention they send a friendly reminder when you've left a timer running? Oh Yes - we do that sometimes too!

Cons

It's hard to think of a really thorny issue - these guys have worked everything together slowly over the years. It's a a balanced appraoch - the Forecast Add-On is slowly expanding and deepening and there will no doubt be features added that a user would like, for example more zoom in and out to break down to week and day. That is about it really - this is solid Dev-Product, not some rushed-out-to-get-Trials company.

This program does time tracking very well. The ease of starting/stopping a timer or logging time is the biggest strength of Harvest. Ease to navigate and to get information both in and out of the program.

Unable to customize customer facing documents like invoices and estimates. In this day and age, branding is a big part of a business and the lack of ability to even put my logo on an invoice is disappointing.

Value for Money

Pros

It’s incredibly intuitive and easy to understand. I was able to pick it up and customize it in a few minutes for my own freelancing, and have a few bookkeeping clients that use it for employee time tracking and invoicing. The invoices sync nicely to QuickBooks Online and look good when you send them to customers. The time tracking is decently intuitive and easy to set up.

Cons

We wanted to use Harvest at my firm, but the time tracking doesn’t sync the way we need it to with our firm’s idiosyncrasies. We were able to set up TSheets the way we needed to, which is not really a knock on Harvest; Harvest’s biggest selling point is how easy it is to use out of the box. That means it’s a little less flexible and customizable than other things, but honestly I think most people would find it worth the money.

Pros

One of the things I’ve discovered from doing freelance work is that I was highly underestimating the time it actually took me to do things. Whether it’s something you’ve done before, or a brand new project, managing your time can be tricky—especially when working from home.

Harvest allows you to track your time per project and per task. This can be incredibly helpful when you’re doing a few different tasks within the same project or for the same client. Not only will this tool help you better track your time, it will also keep you more organized. It even allows you to create invoices directly in the app.

Cons

You can only track one task at a time, so for those who like to have multiple timers going, this may not be the best tool for you.

I used to use this software tools for my team as well as for my other team from 2014 to 2017. I should appreciate Harvest team for this amazing online time management tools which are helping now millions of people to track the time including multiple features. I especially love their friendly eye-catching interface including time tracking options feature. I used to submit my all project times I had spent easily without any tension as it showing real time. Pretty amazing!

Pros

1. simple website design with eye-catching visualization for the essential option.
2. Can be integrated almost any latest software tools like Asana(I used to do this) is amazing sync
3. Reminder for time tracking and project reminder including project owner.
4. Can control and create layer like approval method

Cons

1. Very Pricy in terms of the competitors on the market
2. Need AI support to catch auto standard time frame for each project.
3. Apps crashed and lost time sometimes without an unknown error
4. Should work on popular project time analysis to make real-time auto time support

Pros

Harvest is very easy to use to log time, add a user to a bank of time and pull reports.

Cons

It can be hard to segment time by task within a project, and you can't segment it out by person. This can make it tough and manual to track time by person and task. So, for example, if we have 100 hours for an account and 10 hours for a design project, our designer needs to track her time externally to make sure she doesn't exceed the ten hours. As a project manager, I can see her time, but unless she's listed as a PM, she won't have this insight.

The ONLY thing I don't like about Harvest is that funds deposited into a "retainer" don't show up in the financial report as income. I may have misunderstood the purpose of retainers when I first set up my account. Since then, they have added recurring invoice functionality, which eliminates the need for retainers (for my purposes).

Pros

Absolute best, using this Timesheet helps you get your work tracked your daily tasks monitored. Different reports can be extracted and reviewed later. You can follow up a project and check how much time it took you to finish the task, this is very useful if you are charging per hour. Employees in our organization submit a weekly sheet which can be edited, they can also observe their work through the week and improve themselves for the next project, you can also use it on a different devices.

Cons

Cost should be an issue for some organizations, however having Harvest gives an advantage

Harvest quickly came an easy part of my weekly routine at work and returned to our company some simple, easy-to-understand metrics about how we were spending our time and how it could be better spent. While the product lacks a huge robust set of data-recording options for timekeeping - it makes up for it in ease of use and in benefit that this simple set of data can have on a company looking to optimize their operation and increase accountability.

Pros

Easy to use and even more so with a installed application on Windows, this tool lets you keep track of time and projects in a simple way that doesn't get in the way of getting your work done. Stay productive and get valuable metrics on how you spend your time with this product.

Cons

There are other time-keeping applications that have much more ability to keep tracks of metrics and other important data for how you spend your time. Harvest is for straightforward time-keeping and less aimed toward the more comples use-cases for keeping track. This works best in a project management environment.

Pros

Especially after a recent update, I like how easy the timer is to work with. Simply select the project I'm working on and start the timer. While I'm working it stays on in the background. If I get called away from my desk for some reason, and I forget to stop the timer, it recognizes the inactivity and checks in with me upon return. That's super handy - if I was off the computer on a call related to the project, for example, one button click and it will continue timing including the 'inactive' time. If I got called off to a different project, I can easily put the minutes/hours of 'inactive' time on the appropriate project. If I got called away by something totally unrelated to work, I can toss the accumulated 'inactive' time and either keep working or stop the clock when I get back. It also sends an email reminder after several hours of inactive time - like when I quit working for the day and forget to clock out. No more guessing!

Cons

There is sometimes a disconnect between the desktop app and the website. I can't remember why but once in a while I'll have to check on the site while the app is running (like to read notes associated with a project) and there were some discrepancies. They always sorted themselves out, but for a couple minutes it was confusing. It's not a huge issue so long as you remember to give the site time update with the app.

I just installed it yesterday and have already utilized it's data in several different ways. This Add-ON was SPOT-ON.

Pros

I needed a time tracker to use seamlessly with Basecamp. Did my research - I needed to be able to track time without using "Projects" in Basecamp. To my surprise, Harvest did this exactly how I needed it to work. I had contacted their customer service to ask if this would work, but event before they contacted me back, which was very quickly, I synced the programs and Whallah! It was done and easy. I was able to pull reports right away. Easy to enter, easy to change, easy to report, easy to....well...hopefully you get the picture - it was Easy!

Cons

Their options for just one person were exactly what I needed - so for me, there is nothing I didn't like. For larger groups - I would imagine this could get pricy.

It allows our firm to track the time we're spending on important tasks and sort by client.

Pros

The interface couldn't be simpler to use, and I'm told the backend analytics are very good.

Cons

I felt it was not full-featured. It technically tracks time, but doesn't have ANY other features.

This is great for transparency and keeping track of hours spent on client projects.

Pros

I loved using this tool, which is so simple and easy to use. Time-tracking software at it's best. The great feature of this tool is that even if you forget to track your time, you can go back and add in the time that you missed, which has saved me a few times.

Cons

No cons, this is a wonderful tool - very easy to use.

We are a small consulting firm, and this was exactly what we needed for time-keeping, invoicing and payments.

Pros

This is as simple as it gets for organizing projects, entering time and creating invoices. We process about 25 invoices per month, and this makes it all very easy, and even copies the invoices and payments over to QuickBooks directly.

Cons

It does not have a report on Payments received, which can be very frustrating sometimes.
