About Harvest

Harvest is an online time and expense tracking tool for teams and projects of all sizes. Harvest harnesses the power of time tracking to help users answer critical questions about their team's time, project progress, and the health of the business. Plus, it turns billable time into invoices that make it easy to get paid online. Businesses can use Harvest to carry out time tracking, expense tracking, project management, billable hours tracking, task assignment, invoicing, scheduling, and more.

One of the biggest challenges with tracking time is getting team members to do it. The Harvest app - available for Mac, Windows, iPhone, and Android - makes time tracking easy for teams by letting them track time in the way that's easiest for them. Users can track time as they work - by starting a timer from their desktop, phone, or browser - or enter hours all at once, after they're done. Harvest even integrates with third party tools including Asana, Basecamp, and Trello - so that team members can track time from applications they already use.

Harvest also helps businesses put that timesheet data to work by turning it into intuitive, visual graphs that provide insight into teams and projects. Managers can see what each team member has worked on and what's taking up the most time. See project cost, how much time has been tracked to each project, how much budget is left, and how many billable hours have been worked. And when it's time to invoice clients, Harvest allows users to create an invoice right from the tracked time within the application. Email this data to each client and get paid online with the help of PayPal and Stripe integrations.

A monthly subscription to Harvest costs $12 USD/person/month (billed monthly) or $10.80 USD/person/month (billed annually). A free plan is available for single users. Discounts are available for nonprofit organizations and educational institutions.

    Truly Simple and Intuitive to Use Effectively

    From day one it was intuitive and easy to use. It's a time tracking tool, so it really doesn't need to be complicated. The creators have managed to perfectly combine functionality and a straightforward interface with enough features to also make it versatile for various types of businesses and projects.

    Pros

    This software is part of my everyday use, and it just works 100% of the time. When you are managing various clients and tasks, the interface makes it dead simple to task-switch and start logging hours in a different or for a different client. And when it's time to assess how many hours are left to spend on a client, the analytics reporting is easy to understand and offers several great ways to manipulate the data.

    Cons

    There are features I don't use—mainly the expenses feature—so I cannot speak to how that works. Everything else, however, just works.

    Harvest is a Perfect Solution for Time Tracking and Billing

    Everyone in the agency from me, the owner, to all of our team members love using Harvest. It's so easy to use, between the desktop version to the mobile app. It's been a lifesaver to make keeping track of time and budgets for our marketing agency.

    Pros

    I started my marketing agency in 1999. I used manual, paper solutions for time tracking for the first few years. After much research we found Workamajig in 2004 to switch to an online solution. It served its purpose for many years but everyone struggled with it and found it not user friendly at all. After many attempts we found Harvest in 2018. I played with it for a few days at the end of a month then ripped the bandaid and switched to it on the 1st of a month. It was SO user-friendly everyone loved it out the gate and we have never looked back. It's so great for time tracking and quick insight into projects and budget status at the client, project and task level. I love it!

    Cons

    It's very hard to complain about Harvest. I really love it. I do wish it had the ability to set budgets for staff by clients/projects so we can see how booked up our team is and better manage their time allocation. There is a second-party project Harvest syncs with to try to do this, but it does not work the way we needed it to so we dropped it after a brief trial.

    Daily and weekly resource allocation may be made much easier with the use of forecasting. Easy to use and easy to maintain. A daily or weekly timetable is available to everyone working on the project. Simple to use and simple to keep up to date.

    Pros

    It's simple to keep track of harvest time. Multiple projects and tasks can be created and assigned to various members of your team. It is possible to keep track of the time spent by each individual and compare it to the total number of hours allotted for the project.

    Cons

    An outdated and unfriendly user interface. That would be a great and eye-catching interface to view, in my opinion. As a result, it would be the same as receiving a service or conducting research!

    My overall experience with Harvest has been outstanding. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a simple, straightforward platform to do their invoicing and time tracking.

    Pros

    What I really like most about the Harvest platform is the ease of use. I have used it for years and it has always been 100% reliable! It is easy to add new clients, set up recurring invoices, and keep track of my projects.

    Cons

    It would be great if you could handle setting up invoices from their mobile app but this isn't a deal-breaker. I travel often so that would just be nice to have. That said, I can still log in to the desktop site while traveling and do whatever I need.
