Toggl tries to get time tracking right: it tries also to be ubiquitous, working on the web, on your computer and also on your mobile devices.
Toggl minimal approach could take by surprise someone accustomed to its features-rich competitors, for some options are not there: such as auto-start or auto-stop, but we found that those are not compelling enough features for us. We love Toggl simple approach to time tracking chores, so clicking “Start” at the start of an activity and then stop the tracking when it’s done it’s quite straightforward.
Most importantly, you can define the type of activity you’re doing and so having a detailed report later on, from which you can invoice your client or pass it on to your boss. Speaking of which: reports are one of Toogl’s best selling point, being thorough and simple yet capable of an outstanding depth of information. Reports can also be exported to CVS or Excel format so that they can be integrated into your company system.
Toggl has a free plan for up to 5 people, and then you start to pay – even for some features: i.e. the Excel export. It integrates seamless with many other services like Asana, Trello, Podio, Basecamp (so you can add time-tracking to your project management service of your choice), Freshbooks, Gmail, and so forth.
It’s surely a service to try, at least, if you need to track your activities: it has a fresh approach to the industry that we really appreciated, and one of the best report system we found around.
