    Invoicing, Expenses, Time Tracking, Contracts & Payments

    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.

    Really like how integrated the platform is. I track time, which becomes an invoice in like 4 seconds

    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).

    insanely simple free time tracking

    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.

    I've used Toggl for many years for hourly billing, it's pretty good. The idle time alert is particularly handy.

    Bonsai lets you create your proposals, invoice your client. But also set up recurring payments to charge your clients automatically (if working with retainers, etc)

    Automatic productivity & time tracking for macOS

    If 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.
    I used this time tracker from my client recommendation. Totally satisfied my needs and client requirements. Very simple and intuitive.

    Contracts, invoices, and expenses for digital freelancers

    There is nothing more annoying than having to pay for a bunch of different services that are integrated in any way. Bonsai made me more productive as a freelance web designer by providing an all-in-one solution that can cover all of my business admin needs.
