- Hey, Toggl has a Chrome extension that integrates with Asana - let's you start time from any task/project and has a Pomodoro mode :)Toggl is dead simple, and works everywhere, and has deep integration with SO MANY other tools. Their free plan is sufficient for most freelancing, and they have FANTASTIC reports. Have been using them for years to invoice clients and I could not be happier.
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 have tried many time trackers before I started to use TMetric, but each of them has its own cons. TMetric combines user-frinedly interface and a wide range of useful functions and integrations. Integration with Asana was one of the essential points for me. Also I like that Tmetric has a mobile time tracking app, so you can keep tracking of your activity out of office too.
I use Redmine + TMetric to manage my working activity and keep tracking of working hours and I am fully satisfied with these tools. TMetric helps me to stay productive and reduce the waste of time. Tmetric provides me with detailed time and tasks reports
