Industy-leading Time Tracking and Invoicing

5.0 11 months ago

Comments: Harvest has benefitted our business since inception. I tested all the tools, and this is the one we use and recommend to everyone we know with a SMB.

Pros:

Harvest has the best time-tracking in the industry, their Mac app is perfect for capturing time throughout the day (and even has a built-in notification if it thinks you've left it running and will auto-adjust accordingly if you let it). It also has deep integrations with other Project Management tools that mean you can easily track time wherever you are. And then you have estimates and invoicing - which again, seamlessly integrate with the time tracking functionality to make your life easy.

Cons:

It'd be great if they had an estimate to project function that could auto-setup a job when an estimate is approved. Currently this is the only manual feature. Retainer reports are also a little confusing as they don't obviously isolate actual payments from retainer balance updates.

I've been using Harvest since 2015!

5.0 8 months ago

Comments: It does a great job of tracking time and it so simple to use. I use the reports aspect weekly to send time reports to my clients to keep them informed on time spent. My time reports are done quickly thanks to their detailed reporting.

Pros:

I love how easy Harvest is to use and set up for your business. It's simple to create projects as they have enough detail. It's simple to switch tasks while time tracking.

Cons:

I did not like the limit on profiles for the free version. I guess I see the why but if you have an established business, you can't just try it out with a full client list.

Alternatives Considered: Clockify

Reasons for Switching to Harvest: I preferred the UI with Harvest over Clockify

Good information about time worked

3.0 2 months ago New

Comments: It was a fairly fluid collaborative experience, but I think we needed more development on the part of the program, in fact we like that the program can do time tracking things and serve as a collaborative space so that we can have more development in the team.

Pros:

We spent a long time using Harvest with the development team, it gave us an order of the order of time that we carried out in the work group, it had a good way of measuring what we did, it had real tracking in which you started by turning on the PC and finished turning it off. This somewhat automated the records.

Cons:

Extremely basic reports, we believe that it was necessary to obtain more than just time and tasks in the report but rather to obtain access indications of collaborators and in the parts when entering each collaborator who made it, perhaps we needed a little more from harvest.

time tracking at its best

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: really happy with it and can adjust requirements per client/ project needs - its quick and simple to manage timers throughout the day and stop/ start as needed

Pros:

simple to use and integrates to other project management tools, sits as an app or can be used on a browser - includes a mobile app so can track time when out the office on client meetings / visits

Cons:

time tracking continues unless you stop the timer so on occasions you close down for the day and if you forget the timer running it will continue until the following day! id does email you but if you don't look at the email then you miss it!

Alternatives Considered: ClickUp

Reasons for Switching to Harvest: cost and simple to use, also the app is a bonus for working remotely or out on the road between client visits
