Likelihood to Recommend

Clockify

I would recommend this for someone who is a freelancer with multiple clients, but would not recommend to a company who has multiple employees doing the same job every single day. It'd be easier to have them clock in on one platform, like Square, for example, which automatically can take out taxes (for W9 employees)

Trello

Trello is great for tracking the progress of projects that have specific completion dates or tasks that must be finished in specific orders. We've used it for fundraising projects and event planning, not to mention planning of specific work projects. Trello's flexibility makes it so easy to set up and share new boards with interested parties.

Pros

Clockify

  • Clockify records exact times on a per project basis when you click Start/Stop.
  • User interface is very easy. It is easy to add a project on the fly, change the times I just recorded if I forgot to click Stop for example. The interface is intuitive and gives me the flexibility I need.
  • Reporting gives me everything I need from times, hours per project, billable or not, per client and any tags I've created. This provides enough flexibility for many different use cases.

Trello

  • Easy color categorization of the "Cards" (which can represent anything from projects to tasks)
  • Ease of use overall - you can divide work into columns and move it from column to column depending on status
  • You can create multiple boards, which are spaces to store tasks (for different work contexts, or even private boards)
  • You can easily share boards with another person
  • You can easily assign tasks (Cards) to persons
  • You can store information in cards, like files and short format text

Cons

Clockify

  • It doesn't have a built-in invoicing feature, which is ultimately why we chose to switch to Harvest. That's honestly my only complaint.
McKay Salisbury | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trello

  • Swim Lanes - they are nonexistent. There is a third-party tool to add them but it's buggy as all get out
  • View - I am not sure how to do it but I really wish I didn't have to pick between viewing all cards with no detail or one with all detail. Maybe the ability to collapse and expand?
  • Integrations - It would be amazing if I could easily pop action items from Gmail over to Trello, but right now I can only copy text or upload screenshot attachments.

I'm using the free version at the moment and loving it. What a great product, easy, responsive and has better up time than Yahoo Mail. :) What isn't there to like?

I am very likely to renew Trello, because it doesn't cost anything to do so. I am also very likely to use Trello's upgraded features in the future because a lot of my team's data is stored on there and they have already gotten used to the platform. Trello is very easy for new team members to pick up, making the onboarding and usability very streamlined.

Usability

I can use it effectively on day 1. Day 3 I added more options and back-filled my previous time tracking. I saw how to add Projects and clients and found a way that works well for me. I ran a report for the 3 days I was using it and extrapolated how it would work after 6 months. I saw benefits to being able to search anything, and run reports using several filters including user defined tags, clients, projects

Overall, Trello is a great tool to use. It's very user-friendly, very powerful and we've set it up to work well for our team. I've recommended it to others who need something free or very cheap and it's worked well for them too. If you're wanting something with more muscle, then I'd suggest looking at either monday.com or Airtable.

I have never had an issue logging in or it not being available. I use Clockify every work day during the week, frequently starting/stopping projects. I've had past experience with other systems that suddenly aren't usable for an hour and that is something I have never experienced with Clockify. They are doing something right on their backend. Nice job, Clockify folks

Performance

Clockify

Clockify 9.0
Based on 2 answers
I already mentioned how it feels light across the wire. Pages load fast in the web browser. I have not tried the browser plug-in nor the mobile app. I give it a 9 instead of 10 as the desktop app seemed to hesitate when I clicked the start/stop of a project/task

I dealt very little with customer support because Clockify is so easy to use. That being said, the few times I did, I got fast responses and any issues that I did have were solved in a very fast manner.

I have never needed to contact Trello's customer support team. For the most part, the app is pretty self-explanatory. I have used their help center and find it really useful, particularly their Getting Started guides, which cover everything from general information to feature deep dives and best practices. The help center is available in six different languages and the Trello Community is there to answer questions along with Trello Support.

For our small business, getting a few of us started well on Trello was the key, I think. As long as a couple of us were really comfortable with the interface, we could lead others and help them with any questions. From now on, anyone who works with us just naturally uses Trello for information sharing - it's just part of what we do.

Alternatives Considered

Clockify

Clockify is a perfect cheaper alternative to Harvest and other software that are more expensive but provide more tools. If you need software that tracks time efficiently and generates the required project and employees time reports, Clockify is terrific. If you need software that can be used to generate invoices and run payroll as well, you’ll need to use other more expensive software.
Jackson Gordon | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trello

I would say Trello is very well suited for my team's needs as we are relatively small in size but frequently scale up based on the project's size and needs. We tend to use it at a basic level for organizing internal tasks and to-dos, but also develop large complicated boards when need be. It doesn't seem like other systems (like Basecamp) scale very well and really require a more consistent type of workload to make the best use of them.

Scalability

Clockify

Clockify 10.0
Based on 1 answer
Because it feels light on the wire and runs so smoothly with great up-time. I have to assume that the same is true as it scales. I'm a single user so maybe I don't see if there are any scalability issues. With the way it seems architected to run so quickly across many platforms (desktop, mobile, web, browser plug-in), I have to think that it is using recent technology that provides scalability options

Return on Investment

Clockify

  • The free plan really did everything we needed for the 6 months or so we used it. Without Clockify, we would have had to pay roughly $40+/month for a software tool.
  • When we upgraded to the paid version, it was still only $10/month and helped us be able to have minimum billing increments which is a huge monetary increase.
McKay Salisbury | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trello

  • Trello helps me maintain visibility into what my international teams are doing - even if we can't be in the same room together, we can be on the same board together.
  • Trello helps us manage WIP so as to reduce the amount of things we are trying to do simultaneously.
  • (Negative) Our teams often use Trello as a crutch for traditional communication - instead assuming people will detect changes on the board on their own.
