"Harvest is a good application to control project times"

What do you like best?

Harvest is a good application to control the times of the project, it is an easy, simple and very complete application.

I love it because it is quite complete you can see everything you need about project times, send invoices of those times to the client, where those who have worked have been employees.

What do you dislike?

Harvest has few things that I do not like, it may be that the least I like is that sometimes you have to add project times but either you do not have it assigned or it is not registered and it is a bit of a fuss then return to the days add or change it

Because you could put another one and in that other add as your project and that the administrator validates it or assigns the corresponding project

"A great time tracker"

What do you like best?

Desktop, mobile and web integration is fantastic. My preference became the desktop toolbar - extremely user friendly.

What do you dislike?

To be honest, this was the first tracker I used and it seemed to have all the elements needed to successfully track all your time with many features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Time tracking is not something people like to do. It is an activity that seems to make people feel like they are getting micromanaged but Harvest surprisingly made me feel otherwise. It's ease of use and the time it takes so log and track your time is something that literally takes 1 second - and then it automatically organizes it into your accounts back end for reporting. Definitely would recommend this product if your company is in the market for a good, all around, customizable and simple time tracker with all the features you could ask for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were solving our problem of how many specific hours were being allocated to which client based on certain parameters and departments.

What Time Tracking solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Simple and Great"

What do you like best?

It is so easy to use and understand. I like the idea of a play button instead of more traditional stopwatch-esque iconography. The app is well designed. And I absolutely love how simple it is. We always get quick and courteous support from harvest when we have any issues.

I absolutely love the reminders and how you can stop/start a timer from anywhere. I'm constantly creating a timer and leaving it on all night. The app on my phone reminds me when it's gone too long and I can fix it from my phone even if I stared it from my computer.

Not much else to say. It does what I need it to and does it well!

What do you dislike?

It has one or two bugs in the Mac app that are kind of annoying. When it starts up, it immediately opens the pop-up window and won't go away for at least a minute, but that might be my machine more than the app.

I don't like how it takes over some keyboard shortcuts without asking. I use 2 of them frequently in other apps, but I ended up activating a Harvest command instead of action in the app I was using, which interrupted my workflow. It's easy to turn off, but they should prompt the user about this especially since the are hidden in the preferences menu.

I wish one could decide whether the timer displays in decimals or in minutes, or at least have a quick way to view the decimal time in minutes (maybe like hovering over the timecode in the mac menu bar?). I prefer the decimal display most of the time, but there are times where I need the know the minutes and have to do the ratio, which is kind of annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try it out!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Timekeeping for multiple projects (and types of projects) amongst multiple clients in various US states.

"Great Invoicing and Timekeeping System "

What do you like best?

Harvey allows Macleod & Co. to easily create professional invoices that we can quickly sent off to our clients. It gives us the freedom to create our invoices from our categorized projects or by a free form invoice. The reports for the team are very helpful as well.

What do you dislike?

In my past experience, Quickbooks Online and Harvest have not always communicated the best. Ultimately, I ended up removing the Harvest and Quickbooks Online component to prevent issues happening in the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you would like an easy to use time keeping and invoicing system I would recommend moving forward with Harvest.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Harvest, we are able to simplify our Invoicing system. I am able to easily see if there are invoices that have not yet been paid, or those that are about to be due. I can save PDFs and send out the invoices straight from Harvest. I also have the option to allow the clients to pay with a card through Paypal on Harvest.

"My alltime favorite SaaS tool"

What do you like best?

Harvest is everything its marketed as for time-tracking, project tracking, and Invoicing, ... and way more.

TimeTracking: My least favorite task in the world has been transformed by their easy clean interface that runs on all devices. I can start timer on my desktop, walk away, get in the car, and pick up the time on my phone. The timer registers time to Client & Project, with notes that can appear (or be edited) in your invoice. (Oh and you can track project expenses & Mileage too, with images of receipts).

Invoicing: at the end of your billing period, at click of a button you can pull all the time and expenses for a client and as many of their projects as you want billed together. You can invoice a total, or with detailed line items. The invoice editor is really clean, items can be added, removed, edited re-ordered with ease.

When you send the invoice, you can pick which of the clients' people get the email, and they get a customizable summary email with a PDF attachment, and you can include A PAYMENT LINK! for webpay. Invoices bill time at a task rate or a project rate, which you set up when you set up a client project.

Clients and Projects: list the people and projects for each client. Free version allows limited projects, so for 1st few months I bundled some projects under a client called "Misc" which worked fine. (but Harvest was so useful I soon moved to paid).

Projects are my favorite feature. Each project can have tasks with a budget of time or money (all tasks with same value, or set different costs on different tasks). As time is tracked on the timer, the time used/remaining shows graphically per task and for the whole project. This has been INVALUABLE in presenting project status to clients, as well as having instant visual on which tasks are over/under budget - so potential project over-runs can be spotted in real-time without use of spreadsheets, downloads, caluclator... and adjustments made before the project goes over budget. I LOVE THIS FEATURE!!!

Estimates: Estimates are easy to put together. I include my ToS in the notes at the bottom. The can be line items (like the invoice) or a single line summary. When you send an estimate THE CLIENT CAN ACCEPT/DECLINE with a button on the estimate. So I treat that as a signature of accepting estimate and ToS.

I also use Harvest to do all my ScheduleC business expense tracking. I have my business as a Client, with a project for each year eg: "Taxes 2016". I enter all my all my ScheduleC tax deductible expenses/mileage under that project, and add receipts as photos or PDFs. At tax time, I just run a report of project expenses and for mileage, and Voila, Schedule C done and documented!

On projects involving another consultant, I pay to add a user and have them track their time in Harvest too, so their hours are included in my project analysis and billing, with not data entry on my part.

AND I use Harvest to track all my volunteer hours, mileage and reimbursable expenses... and any other nonbillable projects that need tracking.

What do you dislike?

At present Invoicing and estimates are not available on the phone app, but that's not much of a limitation. Time & Expenses are, and that's mainly what I need on the go.

You can't save favorite time/billing reports, but reports are SO simple to run this has not been an issue for me.

That's the only mild negative I can think of

Recommendations to others considering the product

Absolutely best of breed for tracking clients & projects; costs, time, budget to actuals. For doing Estimates, getting online payment, sending clients scheduled Payment reminders... alround fantastic.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing my consulting business, time, projects, estimates, expenses, mileage & billing... and tax expense tracking.

"Great Time Tracking/Project Budget Tracking Software"

What do you like best?

The program is easy to use. It's very customizable. The customer service reps are quick to respond and very helpful. The software allows you to track project budget in multiple ways. You can produce quick and easy reports that are also customizable. You can prepare invoices. It's a great tool to track budgets for a number of different projects. It's quick to learn, easy to use and a great software. It's increased our teams efficicency tremendously. No more excel spreadsheets for us. Our staff gave the product great reviews. I would highly recommend this product.

What do you dislike?

The product is quite expensive. I work for a non-profit which is a small company. The fees are quite high and there is no reduced fee for small businesses. It would also be great if Harvest allowed you to track the budget based on the client. The way it currently works is to track the budget based on the project.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great time tracking, budget monitoring program. Try it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This allows us to keep on top of our budget. To quickly and accurately make reports at any point during a project. We can easily see who has overspent and on what tasks. It helps us track staff efficiency and overall, it keeps us very aware and up to date on our finances.

"Time Tracking"

What do you like best?

I like how you can integrate harvest into other programs (like Basecamp & Google Chrome for example) so you can easily click the stopwatch and log what you're working on in real time. I also think it's great that we're able to pull reports by project and by which team worked on the project. This helps us a lot because then we can see if we're spreading ourselves too thin, spending too much time on one client, or not enough time on another. If we didn't have this feature, it would be really easy to undermanage or overmanage our clients. We're also a very fair company, so Harvest allows us to make sure everyone is getting the same amount of attention.

What do you dislike?

I don't care much for the reporting. I don't think it is as advanced as it could be. It would be nice if there was a way we can see if we've gotten more efficient at a certain task.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Log as accurately as you can. You will appreciate it later.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a business we're able to see how much time as a whole company we spend on one client. We can then see if this client is worth our time in terms of how much money we're making and how many hours / week we're spending. We're now able to answer whether or not this client is profitable or if they are just time consuming.

"Delighted with the product and the support!"

What do you like best?

The ease with which we can complete and send estimates, the speed of sending invoices once estimates are approved and managing time for all our projects is absolutely first rate!

What do you dislike?

If I had a wish list. I wish I could have a regular invoice converted into a retainer invoice. We sometimes get these two confused. I would also like to be able to turn an accepted estimate into a project, just like being able to convert an estimate into an invoice. One final item. I would love it if the mobile app contained all the standard features for a project manager or salesperson: the ability for the mobile app to create an estimate and the ability to create/manage projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get started with one user...it's free! Try your first estimate, pretend it is accepted, create an invoice, then create a project, track time, close project, boom! So easy to set up and use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Estimate creation; invoicing & collections; project and time management.

"Excellent at keeping time!"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that I have an app on my phone that can keep the same timer running as my desktop so that I can easily track time that is away from my computer as well!

What do you dislike?

I dislike the fact that I can't create new time entries for previous days without having to go to the harvest website. I wish we could this from the program itself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think this program is excellent for timekeeping. As a creative I do have to rely on someone from account service to add me to projects so that I can track my time, but this is rarely an issue. I love that there is an app so I can track time from my phone. Also I am not responsible for client invoicing, but I hear that Harvest does make that a lot easier!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping timesheets for projects is a lot easier with an easily accessible timing app like Harvest.

"Harvest is thorough and useful"

What do you like best?

Although I don't know much about time tracking software, Harvest seems to be the best one available. It pretty much gives you the ability two describe in great detail and in great specifics the kind of project that you are doing and the work you're doing on each project. I also very much enjoy the fact that there is a very easy to use mobile app for Harvest, because it allows me to track my time even when the Internet isn't working, and I can also voice dictate my tasks a lot quicker than typing on the desktop.

What do you dislike?

It has a day View and a week view, but I'd honestly like to see a month view. It would make jumping back in time to see what I did on each project a little bit quicker. I really hate, on the mobile app, that I do not have access to the full keyboard when entering in a Time. I often have to start the timer, let it run for about a minute, stop the timer, and then manually enter the time I spent on a thing, carefully avoiding backspacing the colon.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get in the habit of describing in great detail what you're doing for each project immediately after completing that task. I have, as an employee, falling into the very bad habit of waiting a full two weeks before going back and filling in the details for each task, which takes me about 30 to 45 minutes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our team uses Harvest to track all of the time spent on every project in a broad sense. We separate each task and each project because we also use Harvest to send invoices to a clients so that they can see what exactly went into all the time spent on their projects. Harvest has also helped me a lot to more accurately gauge how long the task will take me before I do it.

"Easy to use, for small biz"

What do you like best?

I work for a small agency, and Harvest is great for having an easy and simple way of tracking time within projects. They're aren't a bunch of unnecessary tools and widgets and the UI design is very pleasing. Plus you can click into projects and see hours and budgets at a high scale, depending on your user permissions. It also remembers what projects and activities you've used in the past, so you don't have to insert the same information over and over again.

What do you dislike?

For my team, we've come to find that digging really deep into a project or building out robust timelines, gantt charts, and project plans isn't a capability in Harvest. While we love using it, it may not be able to scale with our growing team. This tool is definitely best for companies with I'd say less than 10 people or non-complex, long-term projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure you're a small team and don't expect Harvest to solve all of your problems. Great for small, growing teams who need to get organized.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basic and simple time management and budget tracking. It's helped us keep a simple and clear view of what's going on, but it's not the most robust tool. It's easy for any of us to learn and all levels of the org. to see how their hours are affecting the project as a whole.

"Sencilla y extremadamente util"

What do you like best?

Es una herramienta sencilla, se pueden aprender todas sus funciones de forma rápida. Aunque no todo el mundo pueda darle la importancia que merece esta herramienta para registrar nuestros tiempo de actividad es sumamente poderosa y útil.

What do you dislike?

En ocasiones nos olvidamos que tenemos el tiempo corriendo, incluir la posibilidad de tener recordatorios en ventanas emergentes dentro del navegador cada cierto tiempo seria un plus bastante interesante o la función de programar cuanto tiempo deseo destinar a cada actividad.

Recommendations to others considering the product

La rutina es lo mas importante para sacar provecho a esta herramienta, ya que de nada servirá si no se reporta tiempo en ella o los reportes son inexactos, así que crear una buena costumbre de reportes y que estos sean lo mas específicos posible es la clave para sacar el máximo provecho.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Monitoreamos el tiempo que se invierte en cada labor de soporte por cada cliente de esta forma se puede ver en que áreas o a que clientes en particular se les dedica mas o menos tiempo del necesario dando la posibilidad de realizar un calculo de los recursos destinados a cada área.

"Easy to use and many functions"

What do you like best?

It's reasonably-priced and very easy to use. We have lots of contractors and they use our account as well as our employees.

What do you dislike?

We have one small company that has no employees and I have to keep paying for the account even when we don't currently have any subcontractors using it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We rarely have any issues with Harvest, and when the website does have a rare problem, they notify me and let me know what's going on and then when it is back up again. It's extremely easy for everyone to use and flexible that you can add/remove users at any time so you are not paying for people who aren't currently working (like contractors or people who work only during the summer). We love it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used to use Google Sheets for time tracking, and this is much easier and more functional. I can get reports by jobs, people, and/or tasks so that we can bill clients easily. No more issues with disputes about time and I can see everyone's time right away. Rates can be added as well as project managers.

"Best Time Tracker/Invoice Creation Combo"

What do you like best?

Lots of apps track time, and lots of apps generate invoices. Few can do both easily, and also integrate seamlessly with your project management software. It even has an iOS app for tracking on the go. Harvest is the perfect solution for my agency.

What do you dislike?

It's a little expensive, and sometimes my employees accidentally overlook using the Harvest button within Asana to track tasks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I usually hate to pay for a service I can get for free somewhere else, but Harvest has been worth every penny. Main recommendation: get the Chrome Extension and the phone app, and integrate it with whatever project management software you use. Info syncs seamlessly between all three applications.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have my employees track their time with Havest while they are working on client projects I have set up in Asana. It makes it really easy to take those tracked hours and generate monthly invoices for each client.

"Harvest Time Tracker"

What do you like best?

It's easy to use. The quotes and humorous reminders you may have left a timer on or am 'tracking into the future' are quite enjoyable.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a way to set hourly or project based pricing options for the same project as some of our service tasks are project based while others are hourly. To get around this we've set them up as completely different projects and then cobble invoices together.

I also don't need Harvest's entire catagory of offerings as we have other tools that do that better. Meanwhile their pricing goes up the more they offer (which makes sense). I only wish they would offer a tiered approach to allow flexibility and control to ensure all subscribers get the value/worth out of the system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy time tracking and record keeping.

"Simple timekeeping"

What do you like best?

This is good for tracking time for multiple clients and multiple projects. It's easy to use, auto saves, and makes it easy to search by project, client, or date.

What do you dislike?

It can get a little unwieldy to enter time as projects grow. It would be nice to have a way to cluster projects under a client, or otherwise bucket projects on the main entry screen.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very simple and easy to use. Would recommend for simple timekeeping needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used to use spreadsheets to track time, which was time consuming and clunky. I advocated switching to an online tool so we could make submitting our timesheets easier and faster. We looked at a few different services, and decided that Harvest was best suited to our needs. Our HR director loves it because it means less work for her to piece together information from spreadsheets, and the rest of us like being able to enter time online and not have to save and send timesheets as attachments. It all works seamlessly.

"best time tracker"

What do you like best?

Harvest is an easy to use, beautifully designed software.It is well-organized so anyone can learn and use Harvest in a very little amount of time. Team management and scheduling. Excellent integration options.

What do you dislike?

The invoicing and expensing is not good enough when you are a company with more than 5 employees. On the other hand the reports per member of the team could have better filters.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In easytech we provide development service and basically invoice the hours we execute each client. With harvest we not only achieve that the developers do not see the time tracking complicated but the reports that we generate are simple and clear so that our clients can review what the tasks were.

"A scalable time tracking solution that makes it easy for all teams to keep track of hours"

What do you like best?

Hows simple it is for everyone to track time. The ability to categorize your involvement and break down time even further into specific tasks or types or work.

What do you dislike?

The search function can have some quirks to it and doesn't always show the result you are looking for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do the free trial, break down projects into sub tasks and add in types of actions - you'll see very quickly how useful harvest is.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping track of employee hours across complex projects with limitations and restrictions. This tool has allowed me to quickly get up to speed on a project and easily organize it based on my contributions to the projects.

"Excellent program to create invoices and run reports"

What do you like best?

Harvest creates custom reports for employee hours, expenses, and invoicing. Employees can easily manage their own time cards by breaking down tasks and project managers can track budgets for multiple projects.

What do you dislike?

From the administration side, its difficult to change certain settings because its not centralized. You have to search around the website to find things like employee rates, invoicing addresses, expense categories, ect...

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your business has to invoice billable hours and expenses, Harvest makes the process much easier.

"Intuitive Timetracker"

What do you like best?

Harvest has this clean and sleek look to it, that really helps you quickly see what projects you're on and the time you've spent + time left to work on it. The nav bar also allows you to quickly toggle between projects, timesheets, teams, etc. Also, the handy feature of the time clock being a Chrome plugin makes the billable hour very accurate, since I can quickly start/stop the timeclock for each project.

What do you dislike?

The Chrome plugin is a little wacky sometimes. I wish you could switch between projects quickly through that. It's easy when you're working on a single project at one time, but once you get multiple going, it is just messy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Harvest also has a Forecast plug-in, which have been a very positive change. This allows projects to be forecasted and arranged. I believe it pertains more to PMs who are trying to build a team for client projects, however it's great for me to see who is available for smaller tasks as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used to have issues with working more hours than allotted for clients, or I would get internal requests from coworkers and it's now easier for them to login and see where I am with a project, rather than hounding me until it's done. It also helps me for managing my time and projects, since I don't have a PM or manager on-location.

"Harvest is a very positive experience in the work place."

What do you like best?

I enjoy how you can log your hours but also keep track of what you are doing. Its a good way to realize how much time and effort you are putting into certain tasks and projects. This eventually could determine if the time put into each is worth it, or if it should be spent on other items.

What do you dislike?

So far, there is nothing I dislike about Harvest. All of my experiences have been positive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely start to use it at your job if tracking your hours and progress is something you are wishing to achieve.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our team as a whole is interested in seeing where our time is spent. At the end of a month or a year our director can assess and see what we are putting our time into. This can then be compared to the results or outcomes of each project. If a project is having a lot of time spent on it, but not a positive outcome, perhaps we can focus on other things.

"An Easy Way to Timetrack for A Fast-Paced Job"

What do you like best?

Harvest embeds with Asana and on my desktop so I can timetrack specific tasks and start and stop easily.

What do you dislike?

I wish the reporting tab would use line graphs to show time tracking over time instead of horizontal bar graphs

Recommendations to others considering the product

Harvest is worth the investment because it has allowed our firm to more accurately show profitability of our retainer clients. I've been using Harvest for over 2 years, and using it becomes second nature. I have been committed to accurately reflecting the hours (and minutes) of work that I spend on clients because it's very easy to do so. I'm happy to help our firm be successful!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to identify which clients are biggest time suck. We found out which ones went beyond their retainer hours. It also helped me understand how much time I was spending in photoshop vs our email marketing system vs project management

"Great tool for time tracking. "

What do you like best?

It's an easy tool to have employees use. It's just customizable enough to allow necessary tweaks to time segments without being too customizable to cause problems inside a company. It's a clean website with accurate reporting and management tools. It also links well with Asana for task management.

What do you dislike?

The reporting section is accurate but can be a little messy as well. Setting up templates and adding new services to clients gets a little complex at times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Harvest is a great tool to avoid losing money on projects. I would strongly consider using Asana as well for task management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We manage around 100 clients between 40 employees. Harvest allows us to keep track of our billable hours for clients to make sure we're fulfilling without consistently going over budget on time. It helps us track non-billable time spent on meetings and training to ensure we're in the right area. It also helps us get better estimates of how much time specific tasks take across all clients.

"Excellent time-tracking client"

What do you like best?

Harvest pretty much does exactly what it says it will do, and does it very well and clearly. You can track your own time and your employees' capacity, view how much time is dedicated to certain projects, and view weekly and monthly reports.

What do you dislike?

There's not much to dislike about harvest, as I previously mentioned, it does pretty much exactly what it says it will do and it's very easy to figure out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Both my current and previous employers have used harvest for time tracking, and I think it is a no-brainer. It's a simple interface, has a good mobile app for logging your hours on the go, has an easy expense-submission process, and is so easy to use. I would recommend Harvest to any business that is looking for an easy and great solution for time-tracking.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Harvest has great time tracking, easy expense submission, capacity planning, simplicity, easy of use, and a solid mobile app. All of these combine for an all around easy and great experience.

"Harvest review "

What do you like best?

I have used several databases to track my work hours. Harvest allows me great flexibility based on the client. For example some projects are hourly and some are Fee-based. I like that it has a function to add PDFs of expenses, too. Very handy.

What do you dislike?

I have very few issues with Harvest. The only one that comes to mind was changing categories for work billing once I was ready to Invoice. As with any software their is some leaning curve. Once you figure out where to change things, I have few issues.

If you need a method for tracking client work Harvest is a cost effective and flexible platform. Their invoicing is great, too, and allows you to add PDFs of expense receipts.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I need to track multiple projects for the same client and bill them each separately. It is easy with Harvest. They also allow you to have your teams access which is great when you have a project and recruit assistance.

"Great for small service teams!"

What do you like best?

They make invoicing and time tracking so easy. It's easy to forget to start/stop a time so you need as many barriers as possible removed. This is why I really like that they integrate with so many other options. We usually use the chrome extension because we can see the timer is on while we are working but it also integrates with Trello project management and others well. I also invoice clients directly from the program so I don't need to download the pdf and go back to my email. I love the recurring invoice setup so I don't have to remember invoices that are on an odd schedule.

What do you dislike?

It's not a feature flaw of Harvest, but I would prefer if I could just use Harvest for all my needs and not need Quickbooks. Harvest suits my invoicing needs much better which is why I need them. However, I still need Quickbooks because it connects to my bank and credit card accounts which makes expense tracking a breeze. Harvest does let you add expenses but it's expenses per project not your overall business expenses. I know that Harvest syncs its invoices with Quickbooks invoices and this works OK but there can be errors if you need to make changes or undo actions. Plus, as mentioned, I have issues with the Quickbooks end but I need them for now to make my overall profit and expense reports easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Invoicing clients and keeping track of recurring autopayments in an easy way. This saves time.

Time tracking with few barriers so no excuse to forget. This keeps our work accurate.

"Handy timekeeping software"

What do you like best?

I don't use a computer for work, so it's really handy that the people who do use one can use this software on their desktop, and I was able to download the app and have the same access as everyone else. It's easy to remember to log time spent on different projects when

What do you dislike?

The quotes are not always great. ;-) Just kidding, I like everything!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great if you have a large team to manage.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used to use paper timesheets, but they required a computer to fill out. Each employee had to complete theirs at the end of the day, but there was only one computer to do that on, creating a traffic jam, and it used a lot of paper to print them each week. Plus people would forget how much time they put in on each project during the day. It's made billing much easier, as well as tracking labor costs and employee productivity.

"Time Tracking at it's finest"

What do you like best?

I love Harvest for it's ease of use, intuitive interface, and invoicing.

What do you dislike?

There are some limitations to the invoicing that become frustrating sometimes. Most specifically, there does not seem to be a way to carry over outstanding balances from one invoice to the next.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Harvest has been an almost perfect solution for my team's time tracking and client invoicing. As a small business owner who works with mid-large sized businesses, I highly recommend this service for ease of use and professionalism.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My entire team uses harvest for time tracking, which allows us to ensure that we're spending the appropriate amount of time on each project and allows me to see that my employees are spending the appropriate amount of time working. We know exactly how much we should be billing out clients, and it's easy to see if we are exceeding the scope of work in time spent.

Harvest also makes invoicing exceptionally easy.

"Simple is good."

What do you like best?

I was on the end-user side of the software which was managed by my Supervisor/Manager.

So far it has served both me and the manager well for time-tracking and project tracking needs.

What do you dislike?

Some of the reporting methods might not be that accurate. The created of the harvest task has to do the due diligence in understanding the short-coming of the tool and make work-around for it. Eg: Office meeting time is actually a task which is to be made to show that you were productive but for a different cause.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool for small to medium size companies. For large data sets, harvest needs to provide more advance tools to reduce repetitive editing of tasks. Better than Excel sheets.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Project timeline and tracking, budgeting estimations, project assignments.

"Does what I want! Invoice, tracks time, reporting!"

What do you like best?

I like that I'm able to track time towards projects and invoice my clients all in one platform. It's easy to use and the interface is extremely simple and not overwhelming. I like that I'm able to create draft invoices on my phone, review them at my own convenience on my and then send it. I also like the invoice graph chart where it lets me know exactly how much I'm making each month. I also like the automatic reminders that sends out to my clients if they've missed a payment

What do you dislike?

I don't like the idea of having to pay PER user, but that's only because I don't like spending money. For what I pay as an individual user, it's totally worth it. But starting off as freelancer and I'd like my designer who I rarely use, I'd like him to track time as well, and I go back and forth on if it's worth it to get him an account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I feel it's the best way to keep track of invoices, expenses, & time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Invoicing clients, automatic reminders to clients who haven't paid their invoice, tracking time, seeing how much I'm making each month. When I was using this as a team at another company, it was amazing to see how how much time my co-workers spent on certain projects. Knowing how much time is being spent on a project helps me better determine how I should adjust my fees in the future. I like that I can upload receipts for my expenses straight from my phone.

"Harvest Is a Great (and Easy) Tool for Tracking Time and Expenses"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Harvest is how easy the tool makes it to track billable hours and expenses. I have used several other systems in the past, but Harvest is definitely the easiest to learn. The interface is extremely clean.

Additionally, the mobile app has great functionality.

What do you dislike?

To be honest, there isn't anything I dislike about Harvest at this point.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a small agency working with several clients, and it is important that each employee tracks the time they spend working on client projects. In addition, it streamlines the system for travel expenses. It's not necessarily to constantly be emailing receipts because you simply upload them all to Harvest.

"Powerful time tracking without the headaches."

What do you like best?

The best thing about Harvest is it's ease of use and accurate time tracking. Harvest easily allows me to switch between projects throughout my workday and keeps up to the minute records of what I'm working on and how long I've been working on it. It also allows me to quickly return to a project that I was previously working on without the need to fill out a new entry log.

What do you dislike?

My only complaint with Harvest is that it's often hard to find the exact project that I wish to bill my time to. I often have over 50 projects available to me in me which sometimes require me to scroll quite a bit to find the correct project that I'm working on. There is a search feature but I feel as though it takes just as long to search for the project as it does to scroll through the available entries.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend Harvest to others who need to accurately track their time throughout many projects during a normal working day. Harvest makes it easy to accurately log your time so that your clients aren't over and/or undercharged. If you're a software engineer, Harvest also has a fully open API which allows you to hook into many of the other engineering tools that you may use on a daily basis.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The primary business problem that Harvest solves is the need to accurately track my time throughout the day. My clients are billed by the minute so accurate time tracking is a must for honest billing.

"Preferred Time Tracking & Invoicing Software"

What do you like best?

It is very quick. Accessing past invoices and starting/stopping times are a breeze. Search functionality within the invoices section is immediate. Makes the software an absolute joy to use!

The mobile app is also nice and quick. Well made and allows for quick timer start/stop functionality.

What do you dislike?

It is missing deep integrations with a few newer help desks on the market like Help Scout.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are in a primarily service-based industry where tracking time and billing by hours is important, Harvest is one of the best standalone time tracking and invoicing tools out there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Time tracking and invoicing. Figuring out where we are spending our time with internal business processes as well as invoicing our clients hourly as well as managing time allocations for projects. It has allowed us to get a better sense of where we are spending our time, where we should focus more of our time, and where we should focus less of it.

"good user interface, limited and insufficient export functions"

What do you like best?

The user interface is very simple and easy to set up. Project account management is straightforward as is the ability to assign billing rates per person per project.

What do you dislike?

While the online reports are great, summarizing by task, project, or person, the only export options are to export all the data as a data dump by time. Consequently in order to generate the same summary numbers that are easily displayed online, the exported data must be significantly manipulated and this is a considerable waste of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you would like summarized reports to be exportable, this software doesn't do it. Hopefully they will respond to this need and add that simple functionality, but for right now I'd try another platform.

On the other hand, this software is very user friendly and easy to set up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In general I really like the concept and for the most part like this software, however it's limitations may be too significant and I'm thinking of moving to another system.

"The best time tracker and invoicing software"

What do you like best?

What I love about Harvest is that they keep it simple and have amazing support. There's not layers upon layers of task management, its just simple time tracking and invoicing done very, very well. Expense management and invoicing is also very good. The invoicing is pretty flexible in that you can bill hourly, fixed rates, etc. The emails are also easy to customize which is nice. Their support is first class.

What do you dislike?

It would be great to be able to schedule invoices and to be able to bill for expenses more easily on fixed price projects. I've requested both of these features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you only need to track time (for internal use or billing) and send invoices that may or may not include expenses, and you don't need anything else, try Harvest.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Harvest allows us to track our profitability and invoice our clients in a simple and intuitive way without bogging us down with too much input.

"THIS is what a simple timesheet should be"

What do you like best?

I love that the application works for those who track their time as they work (with the timer), and for those who fill in their week's work last thing on Friday.

What do you dislike?

This *might* just have something to do with our implementation, but I wish that notes were required. My company requires them, and so often I forget and our ops team has to chase me for my notes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you are naming your projects in a way that allows you to correlate them to your other internal systems -- project management, CRM, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love being able to track hours as billable vs. non-billable, based on the project or even the project role. The benefit is that as an employee who is compensated for billable work, I can track my billable hours quite handily.

"It just works"

What do you like best?

I like that it's easy and intuitive. I use it daily, and it just works the way you need it to. I was required to use it to log my hours at work when I first started my internship, but I looked through everything Harvest has to offer, and began using it in other way. I best like the accessibility and integration of this software. I can access it on my computer, or the mobile app, or just about any device. Integration into other software such as Google Chrome allows you to keep track of what you're working on in real time.

What do you dislike?

I don't have many problems with this software. The only thing I don't like is that there is this one feature I would like to see that hasn't been implemented. That feature is a monthly view *with detail*. There is a monthly view on iOS, however it is only for switching to other dates, as opposed to viewing details of previous days/weeks. Desktop has a similar feature, although it is much less noticeable and doesn't take up the whole screen as the iOS version does. I'd like to be able to view details of projects and time tracking on a monthly basis as oppose to only weekly or daily.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start out with one user, since it's free. Get a feel for using the product, and you won't regret it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Harvest makes time tracking easy. When using along with other software, like Basecamp, it no longer takes time to track time. For me, time tracking is usually one of those things that I have to stop, and give thought and time to do. With Harvest it's really easy and takes less time than ever, enabling me to get more out of my work day.

"Great software that focuses on the team!"

What do you like best?

I enjoy using Harvest at work! It helps you track your time on projects. It helps the company stay organized and stay on track. I would recommend Harvest to any small business. I also like how you can assign projects to users, and you can add notes! This helps everyone be on the same page, and understanding projects.

What do you dislike?

Like with every software, there are a few problems with Harvest. There is no dashboard on Harvest, which means that you cannot see and track what your employees are accomplishing. It would nice to see everyones accomplishments all in one place, instead of digging around.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I honestly cannot think about any recommendations for Harvest, seeing as I believe that Harvest is going into the right direction! I love how it can be viewed anywhere, even on your phone. It is ease of access that I love!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Employees are accomplishing tasks and getting things done in a timely manner! It is very easy to use that everyone enjoys using this program! It also allows you to manage time, which is a huge plus in any business! Instead of getting of track, you can get things done.

"Harvest helps me harvest"

What do you like best?

Harvest is a great tool for timekeeping. Harvest Reports are great as they let me see my income and time spent on projects. I also enjoy the motivating quotes they use on the timer window. I like how easy it is to choose a project and start a timer. The time summary (circle i) is a nice touch too, just to be able to quickly know how many hours you have worked in a day/week/month. Harvest's desktop app features make it fairly easy to check pretty much all the info you need without having to go to their website. Information is organized and easily accessible.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the fact that you cannot add a new project from the Harvest app. You have to go to the website to do this, then refresh the app for it to show up. I feel it would be so much easier to be able to add a project to the app without having to visit the Harvest site. My other issue is with the time worked hours report. Harvest reports time in decimal format on Reports, and I'd prefer it be shown in HH:MM format for ease of billing/tallying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Harvest is an excellent tool for timekeeping/income/business spending. Even the free version offers great options to keep your business reports and your team's work hours organized. Their customer support is great, and if you are looking for an affordable timekeeping/billing/business tool, Harvest is an excellent option. I have many other web/app based time keeping options and Harvest is hands-down the best choice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Timekeeping/income earned. The realized benefits are knowing my daily/weekly/monthly income and amount of time spent on projects.

"Best way to track time for an agency!"

What do you like best?

The thing I like most about Harvest is that it is easy to use. Everything is very simple and the userface is extremely intuitive. Navigating from your timesheet to your company's reports to invoices is easy peasy.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't anything about Harvest that I necessarily dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a tool to track your time, this is very easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a marketing agency, it is absolutely imperative to track the time we spend on projects. We not only use time tracking as a way to see how long we're spending on individual projects, but more importantly, we use it to evaluate our company's capacity (and availability to take on more projects). We're able to create as many projects as we need, and so we not only have Harvest projects for client projects, but internal ones as well. This is great because we track on how much we're spending on internal initiatives vs. project work -- and it's help us budget our time and figure out when we need to hire more people.

What do you dislike?

I am not sure if they have a patch or plugin available to integrate Harvest with your calendar. If there is, it has to be advertised.

"Very user friendly time tracking that you can outgrow quickly"

What do you like best?

Harvest is very user friendly. The interface is nice, the reporting is solid, the apps are great. If you are a small company <10 employees, I would say Harvest is a very good choice. It supports a few more complex features, such as different currencies per client. The expense handling is also solid. In a lot of scenarios you can probably ditch a separate expense management solution like Expensify, if you can live with the smaller feature set.

What do you dislike?

My feeling is you can outgrow Harvest quite quickly. There are a few things that Harvest does really, really badly.

First and most important: It can't properly track projects that are on a fix budget. Sure, you can give it a budget, but the hours will just pile up on top. There's no way that you can set a fixed budget and then invoice for that automatically. Instead, you need to go in and either change the hourly rates, or move tracked time into an unbilled state, until you've hit the budget. That is super annoying. Harvest took a stab at implementing fix cost projects last year, but messed up the project so badly that it corrupted a number of our projects. After asking again and again for the state of development Harvest told us that this feature isn't developed anymore.

Secondly, Harvest doesn't support multiple billing entities. If you work from a more complex organizational structure, then Harvest is not for you. This is probably only a concern for fast growing companies.

Thirdly: Harvest's pricing model doesn't incentivize growth. You are stuck on a flat fee of just under 10 USD/month per employee. Not great, if you work with a larger set of freelancers that only bill very little time. In these scenarios. Just 10 freelaners will cost you a thousand dollars a year.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You need to take a close hard look at how likely it is that you will be outgrowing Harvest's feature set quickly

Ease of use leads the list. Integration with their Forecast product has really helped our studio understand what projects are best for us, easily assign resources and know where our time goes (as a design studio, you'd be surprised how little design hours we spend)

I would love it if we didnt need to bounce back in forth form Harvest to Forecast… but thats a very first world problem.

Cant recommend it enough, especially if you integrate Forcast.

Accounting for hours outside of "design". We now show clients how much time we spend outside of the actual design process. It makes billing a very objective process.

"Great for tracking time from any device"

What do you like best?

Whether using your browser, installed app or mobile app, Harvest works seamlessly on any device to easily track time. The interface is simple and clean. It does exactly what it needs to do.

What do you dislike?

The mobile app is great for tracking time, but there's not much else you can do. I wish you could view weekly and monthly reports as you can through the browser app.

Use Harvest to track your time live instead of going back and entering time. It's so much more efficient and will serve you better in the end.

"Team Project Tasks Time Tracking"

What do you like best?

Harvest is one of the best solutions for tracking time spent on certain tasks of a project. It makes it easy for employees to record time. harvest has 2 ways of tracking time.

1. You can select a pre-defined task and start the counter while you are working and stop if after finishing, which records that tracked time for the selected task.

2. You can manually enter total time spent on each task for the day.

Harvest can be integrated with a lot of other platforms which makes it easy to in-cooperate it in your business.

What do you dislike?

Harvest can not automatically tell what application an employee has been working on for how long which can help fill the gap of time usage management though it's a big privacy issue.

"Very robust Time and Billing application"

What do you like best?

Easy to use for time and billing, connects with Xero seamlessly. The UI is simple enough and the reports are more than adequate.

What do you dislike?

The retainer feature, especially with how it works with Xero needs to be re-thought as it is a) quite confusing and b) not properly sync'd.

The iPhone App is great but it doesn't always sync properly and one needs to be on wifi alot of the time for it to sync.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take some time and play with the software. Very easy to use and setup. Took me about 30 minutes. If you are going to use the retainer feature, test it out especially if it is linked to your accounting system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I bill for my time and needed a new software that linked with Xero, my core accounting system. It has completely solved that business problem and I use it daily.

"Simple Time Tracker"

What do you like best?

I work at an agency that utilizes Harvest for our projects/clients. The software was managed by my admin team as well as our project managers. Overall, I personally as the user have not had any issues with it. Harvest allows you to make project codes for specific clients and under the project codes are a list of custom tasks such as design, web development, QA, etc. Harvest has a mobile app which is nice when I'm on the run and has a desktop app that can live in your top bar instead of logging in on a webpage. It also will email you when it notices you've left your timer running for several hours.

What do you dislike?

I have yet to find much that I dislike. The only thing would be user error in that I forget to start or end my timer when I start and leave work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a super easy software to train any one on. It's super simple to track time. More than just a punch-in/punch-out service like you would at other companies.

"Really good to track billable hours"

What do you like best?

Really just the pure ability to track your time and bill against it is perfect. You can add multiple tasks to one project and manage what team is spending what amount of time with each task or are. You can also limit the time spent by allocating a limit and /or adding a $ cap.

What do you dislike?

It's really useless unless you really use it properly (if you don't bill time according to it) you can just aimlessly track time without any real consequences.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to manage with a small team to break down client work and track billable vs. non billable hours. Make sure you set the expectations with the client based on reports from Harvest so there is no misunderstanding on where the invoices are coming from.

There is also a desktop app that enables you to track time in real time when working on a task.

Set project boundaries so you don't go over limit with hours and cost.

Track tasks by project, responsibility, or tons of custom slices. Integrate with Jira and other external systems, easily generate reports.

What do you like best?

The two divisions that I work with use Harvest totally different. The traditional agency uses it exclusively for time tracking and the digital agency uses it exclusively for estimating. I like the estimating tool a little bit more.

What do you dislike?

The search function doesn't always work the way I need it to. It will search client name easier than project name which can be inconvenient. My company is leaving Harvest and I am very neutral about it. I don't hate Harvest, but I definitely am not standing up to stay with them.
