    Scenarios where ActiveCollab works well 1) ActiveCollab works well for small teams specifically T&M teams.Its invoicing feature is unique & can make your life easy. 2) It is very easy to use & posses good range of filters like on the task list, we can drag/drop tasks, Filter by assignee's,
    tasks lists, due dates, or completed tasks. 3) It has some simple but awesome features like when you're in
    the middle of writing something i.e a comment on story and get interrupted,
    it retains what you wrote. 4) It allows you to tag team members in threads of comments to grab their attention, its really needed when teams are distributed. Thus helping team members to collaborate easily & stay on same page. 5) It integrates pretty well with other web apps like quickbooks , Slack, Trello, HubSpot, Zapier etc Scenarios where ActiveCollab did not work well 1) Tasks can not have multiple assignee's here so if two members are working on same task it did not allow you to reflect that. 2) Sorting capability is not their under invoicing 3) It did not work well for larger teams 4) Search option is not very detailed & you may end up wasting lot of time searching one particular bug or issue.

    ActiveCollab

    • Does not maintain default categories for tasks

    Hubstaff

    • I am having a problem with its customer support. [I feel it is] one of the worst customer service I have gone through for the longest time. They did not even know about their own platform, response time is late and there is no such name of help from their side what so ever which makes it a very difficult platform to use.
    • [I believe it] needs a lot of upgrades in customer support system.

      Support Rating

      ActiveCollab

      We have not required support for ActiveCollab as it works pretty seamlessly. We didn't have any issues with using the platform or with any billing issues. The self-service aspect of the platform is robust and easy to navigate so we have not encountered any errors that required assistance from the support team.

      Hubstaff

      Hubstaff has always responded to support requests in a timely manner and has kept me in the loop of changes. When contacting them about future changes/features they've always been upfront on whether that is a change they are looking to make and when that change may occur. Finally, if the person I have communicated with was unable to resolve, they always escalated to the next best person who can answer/resolve.

      Alternatives Considered

      ActiveCollab

      ActiveCollab is easier to use and simpler in its setup. It has the right mix of features and simplicity. It's also project-oriented which is important for our workflow. Other tools are often too task-oriented, making it hard to track projects. Overall, ActiveCollab has a great mix of simplicity with good features.

      Hubstaff

      Hubstaff keeps interesting and smart features and functions. The most interesting feature is the reporting feature that has brought much convenience
      to me. It is no doubt a great tool for planning budgets, managing workflows,
      tracking time, and best supervision capabilities.

      Hubstaff

      • Hubstaff has enabled us to identify the most productive workers which enables us to maximize profitability.
      • Hubstaff has enabled us to quickly identify drops in engagement or output, or just poor performance due to not caring so we can move on instead of trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.
      • HubStaff lets us actively measure retainers vs delivered hours and adjust contracts to what we really need based on our time expenditures.
