Today was a busy day. I was working on six different projects for two different clients. Nothing is unstarted and nothing is done; it’s all a work in progress. How can I keep track of it all? Toggl.
I’ve been using Toggl for free for almost a year now. I get enough value from it that I upgraded to the “pro” version.
What is Toggl?
Toggl is designed for effortless time tracking. You can easily capture fragmented worktime. Switching a task or creating a new one is as simple as one mouseclick. It’s a cloud based service that’s accessed via web browser or desktop client (Linux, Mac, and Windows) or an app. Enter what you’re doing and click start. When done, click stop. If you’re picking it up again later, click continue. Tasks are grouped by client and project. The website can generate reports suitable for printing or as CSV downloads.
Toggl is not just for consultants. At the end of the day (or week, or month, or year) it gives you a way to look back and see how you’ve spent your time. Toggl is a great tool.
