Overall Satisfaction with Toggl

I'm one of only a few people that I'm aware of that use Toggl within my organization. I frequently recommend it to track time spent on projects. Toggl helps me to track time spent on various project requests so that I can create more accurate estimates for time to completion of similar projects in the future. We report out time spent on projects each week and Toggl makes it SOOO much easier to fill out that timesheet. It also provides helpful visual summaries of where you spent your time so you can see if you're spending too much time on things that aren't helping you move toward your next career goal.
  • Toggl's interface makes it simple to quickly start and stop a timer or switch to a new project. Just a few clicks and you're done.
  • Toggl has a popup when your computer has been idle for a while that asks you if you want to keep that time, allocate it to a new project, or discard that time, but continue tracking time to a project you were working on before the idle time. This makes is super simple to deal with small interruptions that you don't want to track toward a project.
  • Toggl also helps you by sending email reminders if you leave your timer running when you leave for the day. You also get alerts on your phone if you have the app installed and it allows you to quickly turn the timer off from the app if you don't have your computer close by.
  • When I forget to track time and need to edit multiple entries at once, it would be nice to have a 'quick edit' mode where it converts to more of a spreadsheet set up where you could just type in the missing value rather than use the little edit popup for each individual entry.
  • Toggl makes me more efficient because I don't waste valuable time tracking my hours.
I've tried various other time tracking tools but I've been most impressed by Toggl because of the simplicity and functionality. I don't need a big complex program, I just need a little app that helps me track time and stays out of the way. And, it helps that it's free.
They are helpful and supportive with reasonable turnaround time. They also pro-actively send alerts where there are problems with the app and let you know the status of their efforts to get things back in order.

Toggl is great for anyone who needs to track their time on various projects. You can get really complex using features that I don't use, such as clients, billing, and teams. But, the free version is also full of useful features that help individuals who just need to track their own time for reporting purposes or just to track their efficiency or time spent on key priorities in their lives.
