- There's no better app that so seamlessly integrates all the functions a freelancer needs to manage his/her business, let alone up their productivity by taking care of all tasks like invoicing, expensing and timetracking, so freelancers can better focus on their work. The app has simplified invoicing, integrated time tracking and a personal chief operator (real human!) to answer any questions too.
- I love Trello! I actually create a list for each day with cards for my tasks that day. I'm not even using my normal agenda anymore. And for a big procrastinator like, it's great to move the tasks just to the next day ;-)Trello is not only for freelancing but also for other projects. Let's do this: Trello is an empty house and what you need to do is bring your facilities to the house and tweak them within that house. Your toys are: List = Many Cards = Many Many Checklists = Many Many Many Checklist items. You also have date picker and label for each card. The most useful features I've been using are: Saved Search and Filter by Labels (just click F).
- I charge my clients a monthly fee, but just for my own overview, I like to track how many hours I work on what. Sometimes I feel like I've been sitting at my desk all day, and then I see that only 3 hours have really been productive. Also, when I outsource things per hour, I let those people use Toggl so I can track their hours.I love how easy Toggl is to use, keeping track of what I'm actually doing is so easy, and writing down what I'm actually doing helps so much with keeping me on task.
- Ivan Mir made this productIf you are working on Mac, try Qbserve for real-time productivity tracking (I'm the developer). It shows your productivity score right in the menu bar and dock icons, tracks project time automatically, and generates invoices. This way you can stay more focused and spend less time on time tracking.
- I recommend TMetric, it's an easy and user-friendly time-tracking app with a wide range of functions.
