About Tick

Tick is a cloud-based project time tracking solution for web, desktop, and mobile, which offers multiple timers, budget tracking, reporting, and more. The software is suitable for teams or companies of any size, and can store an unlimited number of archived projects.

Tick’s web, desktop, and mobile apps allow users to track and enter their time worked from their desktop, laptop, smartphone, or Apple watch, with native apps for Mac, iPhone, and Android, and a web extension for Google Chrome. Users can run one or multiple timers to track time spent on different tasks, create new timers throughout the day from completed time entries, and enter times directly from the timer when a task is completed. Time is entered into timecards, with project and task selection from drop-down menus, and users can add notes if required. When hours are entered, project and task progress is automatically updated, and budget feedback is generated in real-time, giving users insight into the time remaining to complete tasks. The project overview also allows users to review progress and budgets for all projects.

Tick allows users to assign projects out to team members, and control each user’s permissions to ensure that private projects and sensitive data are only revealed to the correct people. Monthly recurring projects can also be setup to auto-reset each month, removing the need for users to manually recreate the same projects. Time reports can be generated ‘by client’ or ‘by person’, giving users insight into the number of hours logged by each team member. Reports can be downloaded in CSV format for use in other applications, or exported directly to Freshbooks and QuickBooks. Tick also integrates with Basecamp, allowing users to import people, projects, and to-do lists, track time from directly within their projects, and more.

Key benefits of Tick

  • Monthly recurring projects can be setup to auto-reset each month, removing the need for users to manually create the same project every month.

  • The in-app and desktop timers allow users to track time for each task with single or multiple timers, and enter time directly from the timer when the task is completed.

  • Every task within a project can be given its own budget, which combined with real-time budget feedback allows users to identify any trouble spots as soon as employees enter their hours.

  • Employees can be assigned to different projects, with permission controls to ensure that private projects remain private, and employees can only view the information they need.

  • Hours reports can be generated ‘by person’, allowing users to see the hours logged by each team member for the period, or ‘by client’, and reports can be exported as CSV files or directly into QuickBooks or Freshbooks.

    With my busy schedule,Tick has helped me in tracking my time in relevance to achieving my set goal.It's easy to use and amazing add on for basecamp

    Pros

    For a busy person ,bad with keeping track of time like me,Tick is the solution.The accounts and projects are flexiable and very easy to set it up.It helps in easy tracking of time by indicating the time allocated,time billed and the remaining time hense enabling the user hit the set target.It's easy to import projects and add different tasks and produce detailed time reports by company project and task.one can easily retrieve the data and add to pivot tables to graphically view where time is spent.The best part of it is,it intergrates well with project management software such as Basecamp which bring the time tracking and budget feedback into project management workflow.

    Cons

    Though it can be manageble,i find the process of editing past time entries from any of the summary views long and tiresome.It is also slow at sometimes when it comes for updating time entry field with the item clicked .

    Serviceable Time-Tracking App

    Reviewed on 2018/08/03

    Pros

    Tick allows you to track time to projects, broken into as many sub-categories as you need to encompass all the elements of that project. You can easily see a breakdown of your time and ensure that you're tracking the right amount of time to a day/week or project. It also allows you to set time budgets you can track against.

    Cons

    The reporting function can be a bit cumbersome; I wish it would automatically port to Excel or into more of a spreadsheet format, rather than a long list. It also will automatically create a "shortcut" menu based on your recent entries, so you don't have to scroll through all the projects/tasks to find the one you need to enter time into, but I wish that shortcut menu was customizable rather than auto-generated.

    Tick really is a great support for freelancers, that need to keep track of their working hours. Tick helps me to easily log in and out when i am working, automatically calculating my income and keeping track of my breaks.

    Pros

    Tick is easily accesible with your mobile devices. Thus you can keep track of your time even while working outside.
    With non-billable hours you can also keep track of the amount of your brakes to improve your efficiency.

    Cons

    Tick really isn't the prettiest application out there. Bulky windows and unispired colours make it appear rather unprofessional. Luckily though the functionality really is the important part with this application.

    Switching from Toggl to Tick

    We made the move to Tick because Toggl didn't provide an easy way to track the progress of a project or task. With Tick, we're able to see this, to an extent, while tracking time. However, this only shows up *after* you've "entered" time. So, there isn't a way to view the "estimated" time budget, factoring in the timer that's currently running. It would be a huge, AMAZING, help to be able to see this in REAL time is not at the end of the day, when I've submitted my timers and have already gone over time budget by several hours.

    Additionally, Toggl has a desktop app that works really well'and is native. Tick's app isn't really an app at all, it's a "mini browser" that refreshes every time you open it from the taskbar. Sometimes I'm naming a timer, and a notification pops up and closes Tick, or I need to navigate away for a second, and when I come back, it refreshes'losing all of my information. Toggl's desktop app also reminds you to track time, when your timer isn't running, during user designated hours (ie between 9:00am and 6:00pm, if I don't have a timer running it'll remind me periodically to remember to track time).

    In general, Tick's design is mediocre at best. If it wasn't for the easier-to-view time budget feature, we wouldn't be using Tick in fact we're considering switching because of the lack of other features. A redesign is long over due.

    Another down fall of Tick, is the fact that time can't be inputted based on time of day. For example, I forgot to start my timer after lunch, but I know I started working around 1:00 pm and then switched tasks around 2:48, and then switched back at 3:32 noon of which was logged. It would be much easier to log time-based on hours of the day, like Toggl does. But in other circumstances, it's helpful to be able to just put in a specified amount of time. Plus, the hours of day allow us to track our employees and see exactly when during the day they weren't clocking time. This is especially helpful with remote employees. In fact, before we switched to Toggle, I was able to find out that an employee wasn't really working when he said he was, or was padding their numbers. But, with the current Tick setup this is nearly impossible to pin-point.

    If you guys want to consider a redesign, we'd love to work with you. Check us out: www.steadfastdesignfirm.com

    Pros

    Time budget tracking right in the time tracker.

    Cons

    Doesn't have a good, easy to use interface.
    Time budgets are visible or represented until timers are "entered" almost defeating the purpose of showing them in the timer in the first place.
    Doesn't have a native desktop app, only a sorry excuse for "something".
    Time can't be inputted based on time of day.

    Overall, I am extremely pleased with the overall product. It is feature rich, easy to use, and is affordable. Checks all the boxes for what I was looking for. Highly recommend.

    Pros

    This software is very easy to use. I was able to learn how to use very quickly. It is also very applicable to what I needed it to do. The feature I like best is the Timecard. makes it easy for everyone logging their time.

    Cons

    This is a pretty solid software. Getting set up with it was a little bit tougher than I thought it was going to be. But once set up, works perfectly.
