Our company has never tracked time spent on projects and, after two years of me and a colleague saying it's ESSENTIAL, our director has finally rolled over and asked us to implement a solution. As you can imagine, a lot of time has been spent on projects which hasn't been billed for, which means we don't have much cash to play with. What's the best time-tracker? I'd love to know about cheap and free (!) options, and integrating with JIRA and other tools would be ideal.
- We use Hubstaff for all our time tracking needs — it also integrates with most major project management tools! You can track time on specific tasks or on a higher project level. About $5 per team member so it hopefully won't break the bank. Other cool features are the screenshots and keyboard/mouse activity stats.
- TimeCamp sounds like a perfect time tracking solution for you! It delivers the highest quality of tracking time for projects. Simple and intuitive design, packed with features like invoicing, budgeting and reporting, has one free and two affordable paid pricing plans. Gives your company a clear overview of how time is being spent. TimeCamp integrates with the most popular management tools on the market, like Asana, Trello, Podio, Insightly, JIRA, Teamwork, Pivotal Tracker, Active Collab, Pivotal Tracker, Slack, Dropbox and more. Easy to use on all the platforms and devices, helps the companies stay up-to-date with how time is being spent on the projects.
- I use Freedcamp for project management. Entirely free, unlimited projects for an unlimited time. You can enable timesheets to record the spent on each project. They also have a small business plan which includes invoices, CRM and other integrations. Categorisation is super useful and the dashboard home gives you an important overview of each subproject within the main project plus the people working on a particular project. Every subproject can have a task list, milestones, discussions, files, calendar, etc. They also have their own issue tracker.
