About FunctionFox

FunctionFox is an online project management and timesheet software designed for creative companies, such as advertising, graphic design, marketing, public relations, and multimedia firms. Users can monitor multiple jobs, assign tasks, manage remote workers, and keep projects on track and on budget.

Built especially for small businesses, FunctionFox provides a simple time tracking tool and a more complex, full-featured project management app. The software provides managers and stakeholders with multiple reports on all project activity, clients, tasks, and personnel. The tool can also be used to compare financial data such as estimates and actual costs as well as to see an overview of timelines, productivity, and budgets.

FunctionFox can be used by staff members to track the time it takes them to complete tasks with the app's stopwatch timer. They can also use the PM tools to create and view a personal calendar, share files and documents, define timelines and milestones, create to-lists, and assign tasks. A project blog with commenting and email alerts can also be set up for further team collaboration. Users can also create invoices, schedule meetings and events with a group calendar, and create contact lists and client profiles.

    The experience has been seamless. Our company has 125 employees who use this for a time keeping system to track time against retainers and projects. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] made the transition incredibly easy from our old system to FunctionFox. He had us up and running within a few days. One employee has used several different systems on various projects and remarked this is by far the best one she's used "it makes life so much easier"

    Pros

    Ease of use, up and running immediately, functionality, customer service

    Cons

    As the administrator I pull reports and the format is more difficult to review than our previous product.

    Thanks for the very kind review LeAnne. Very much appreciated and we enjoy working with your team.

    We use Function Fox to keep track of our team's time and to quote future projects. The reporting gives us insight into areas we need to improve or quote differently. The system provides us with a big picture view of our workload along with the granular data for digging into the details. So far, I haven't found anything it cannot do, except make me lunch. :)

    To make the most of the software, I think it's wise to have a dedicated project manager on staff, although our designers embraced it fairly quickly and enter their own actions and other data.

    Pros

    Function Fox provides several ways to track time, so designers have their choice of methods.

    Even though we don't use it like we should (we're hiring a project manager soon), the Gantt charts are awesome for planning out a project and adjusting schedules as needed.

    I don't have to train my designers how to use it; Function Fox provides one-to-one live tutorials.

    Cons

    The user interface is not as user-friendly or aesthetically pleasing as some of the other products.

    Insufficient for large projects.

    Pros

    Customer support is professional level. The interface is fast.

    Cons

    Frankly, the fact that the product was not flexible and customizable could not achieve the working process I wanted. It was very inadequate for me in terms of managing my projects. They don't have many functional tools for big projects.

    Response from FunctionFox

    Hi Sarah,

    Thanks for your honest review and feedback. sorry it wasn't ideal for your needs but appreciate your comments.

    My agency uses FunctionFox daily to log our time and track our progress.

    Reviewed on 2018/05/04

    Pros

    I like the detailed reporting, the action assignment process, the time entry process, and the ease of entering estimates.

    Cons

    It's a little tricky teaching people to use the software when they first start their job at my agency - we utilize learn as you go "training." Maybe the help center could compile all of their articles into one giant article like a giant FunctionFox guide for new users.

    Tracks time and makes it easy for people to log their hours. Produces higher quality reports than other tools. Has built in intelligence to detect start and end dates of projects.

    Pros

    FunctionFox has a great ability to slice and dice information on timed tasks once they are captured. I also have really enjoyed the email reminders on days when you don't log time. Overall, it seems to work consistently, once everything is set up.

    Cons

    User interface is confusing for most new users. A lot of the information shows on the lower half of the screen which is non-intuitive and creates confusion. The setup can be a little tedious and integrations with other tools (such as ticketing systems, salesforce) would be valuable.
