What's the best time-tracker for teams that integrates with project management tools?

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.

    Time tracking software with screenshots, activity levels...

    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.

      I use TimeCamp's manual time track. My workflow usually:

      - When I want to work on a certain task, for example Project-A, set the timer

      - Focus on that task

      - Turn of the timer when its done.

      One feature that I've not found at other time tracker is TimeCamp allow you to move your tracked time. For example, you accidentally work on task Project-B when you set the timer to Project-A. TimeCamp allow to move your time from Project-A to Project-B.

      I have probably used a dozen different time tracking apps & processes.

      Recently I had need to track a lot of time & task details on a couple of projects. The issue with most time tracking tools is if they do not exist within your existing software set, it can be a drag to use yet another app. My one exception to this rule is a standalone mobile app which TimeCamp provides.

      Currently I am using (and demoing) the free single user license and I have entered about two weeks of time I had been jotting down in a notebook. Time entry is quick, intuitive and flexible with ample room for notes.

      There is a companion desktop and downloadable versions which allow you to upgrade for a broader feature set plus integrations and other bells & whistles.

    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.

    Easy to use on Mac and it has a plugin to integrate with JIRA. I have used it before for personal time tracking and it gives a good insight about time spent

      The product is great, it's flexible, dynamic, you can use it on almost any device (as app, not just web), but the pricing is pretty bad, I mean there is alot of cool features, but paying more for a user than the user's email hosting (google) is not ok.
