Toggl's time tracking feature makes managing a group of people and how they spend their time a breeze. It's available on all modern browsers and operating systems, so no matter what hardware your organization uses, Toggl is probably compatible. Toggl is free for small teams of five people or less, with unlimited workspaces and projects to track. It also has comprehensive idle detection so that the program can detect when a computer has been idling, and a task isn't being performed. Those who opt for the premium version of Toggl will see more advanced reporting and integrations available, including scheduled reports sent to email, time audits, and locking time entries outside of work time. For freelance workers, Toggl can be a godsend because it automatically tracks billable hours and includes rounding and exporting data to numerous formats. That way you can better showcase your work in the form of data to your client, resulting in fewer arguments over how time was spent managing projects. Toggl's premium plan also includes several features designed to help you better manage your projects. Project time estimates will show you likely completion times based on the amount of time that has passed working on a current project. You can even set up custom alerts to when time estimates are close to being finished or have exceeded the expected finishing time to help keep your team on track. Tasks and sub-projects help you organize those small tasks that might not be imperative to finishing the big picture but still need to be carried out on a day to day basis. Project colors help you keep track of which projects your team is working on by easily identifying those tasks with the specific project color. The only real downside to Toggl as a time management service is that it can be expensive for teams that have more than five members. However, the tracking and reporting features make it a viable time management solution if you can afford the cost of a monthly subscription.
