Flexible Time Tracking

Every team member chooses how they want to track time

Harvest doesn’t support automatic time tracking, Pomodoro timers, and focus time. Your team will need constant reminders to track time.

Toggl Track supports flexible time tracking options that adapt to your team's workflow: automated time tracking, timer, and manually adding time entries.

Track time on the web app, desktop, or mobile devices and keep time entries in sync across devices on List and Calendar views.

Toggl Track makes sure you capture every billable minute by making time tracking a seamless experience for your team.

Different types of reporting with Toggl Track such as Reports and Insights showing project profitability

Custom reporting and time analytics

Get productivity and profitability insights from your team’s time logs

Harvest offers built-in project and team reports with a few filtering options. While these are great for basic reporting, you don’t get deeper insights.

Toggl Track has three in-depth reporting tools:

  • Reports: Generate project and team timesheet reports to see how your team spends their billable and non-billable hours.
  • Insights: Make better business decisions by spotting trends. Identify bottlenecks by comparing estimated vs. actual efforts. Track project profitability with income vs. expense reports.
  • Analytics: Build custom charts and time reporting dashboards to analyze and present insights into your team’s tracked hours.

It's not one of those apps where you need to spend half a day figuring out how to actually use it: sessions can be started as they happen or added later, and once the app has got a feel for your schedule and how you work, it'll even make suggestions about what you want to track next.
