What do you like best?

I love the “stop-watch” feature. I typically start my day reading and replying to emails and doing project research. I love that I can quickly add the projects I will be working on for the day and easily start the clock as I work and that project, then when I need to switch gears I can click on the next project and the clock stops on the previous project and begins counting on the next one. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The feature I’m struggling with is the tasks feature. BUT it’s not a problem with the software, it’s just a feature we have not agreed on as a team how to best utilize. It’s possible to add many types of tasks and assign a value for each. However I would prefer to keep it simple with just a few general tasks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were having a hard time keeping track as a team the time we spent on a project securing the contract. Function Fox makes it easy to add a new job and we have created a task for initial meetings and discussions on scope of work and proposal creation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I am a contractor so it makes submitting my time back to my agency very easily. Its very no frills and once you're in, requires little training. Literally - enter my time. Submit. Done. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Software overall looks outdated. I think the company looks really cool but once you're in its just like a grey calendar. Also the timer function should be less easy to select. I feel like it sits on top of the regular time submit function and I always hit it by mistake. Without fail. SO you need to be careful not to do that or else it will begin counting your time and mess things up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think everyone uses time-sheet products differently but I love that I can go in at a month at a time and enter the days/times I worked or didn't. Makes life easy especially since my job is do be a consultant not a time tracker. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My Agency uses it to track all of our (contractors) time. I sit and work and even have an email from a completely different company but I am hired by an Agency so it's easier to keep us honest about our time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This system gives me the power to set specific work hours for employees, and their color system lets me know when I'm close to scheduling all of their open hours for that day. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's the smallest thing, but when an action spans more than one day, it shows up in the "upcoming actions" of the to-do list instead of "today's actions." All this means is our workers actually have to look at either the start dates of tasks or the calendar view, so it's not a real problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
