I have been searching for a time tracking tool that will take care of my simple tracking needs inexpensively in an easy to use format. I find that when I track my time, I am more efficient and I bill more hours. I tend to lose track of time easily through out the day, but a timer keeps me focused.
The requirements for my tracker were pretty simple: 1) Track time by client name and project, 2) Must have a timer and 3) Report hours worked by client for a time period. Bonus points for tracking time with an hourly rate and/or QuickBooks importing. After downloading a few programs and settling on one, my computer had to be sent out for repair. That led to the final requirement – must be web based, so I can keep track of time no matter where I am or which computer I am using.
I stumbled across Toggl and have been using it for about a week. The base version covers my essential needs and it’s FREE! If you need more functionality (billable rates, customized reports), you can upgrade to a paid version. The paid version is $19/month/workgroup. So far, the free version is working great for me.
