Good things about Toggl Track

“Toggl is making it easier for all the team to track the time we spend in each client/project/activity. Helps us to monitor and assess when projects are off-track or adjust pricing accordingly (if we exceed the estimated budget).”

“Flexibility to label different activities with tags, projects, customers.”

“Generates easy to read, comprehensive reports for clients.”

“Easy to add tasks & projects; love weekly reporting interface!”

“Toggl is super easy to use and helps me stay focused on the task at hand! I love being able to visualize where my time is being spent throughout the day.”

Bad things about Toggl Track

“As I go I learn my mistakes and it seems I lost over 40 hours of work because I didn’t click start and well without step-by-step directions it’s hard to learn how to use it.”

“They could make it easier to adjust time tracking mistakes (leaving the timer running too long) – I have to do several clicks to fix it and I make this error frequently”.

“One annoying feature is that you can’t pause sessions; you have to stop it, and create a new one. You end up with a couple of 5 second sessions.”

“Not great for employees whose hours are scattered, or when working on multiple projects at a time.”

“I do not like that if I forget to change the timer with different tasks, the tracker is then not accurate - but always works well when workers are paying attention to different tasks in general.”
