Toggl alternative | Timely

Timely’s simple automated approach makes it the definitive Toggl alternative.
Painlessly import Toggl clients, projects and users to Timely in a click.
“I tried Toggl last year: while remembering to start the timer was a chore, remembering to stop it proved impossible. I was constantly receiving notifications saying ‘your timer has been running for 8 hours’.”

Toggl’s fundamental design flaw

Feel Richard’s pain? You’re not alone. Almost every time tracking app currently on the market shares Toggl’s essential design flaw: manual timer input.

Toggl sells itself as being intuitive and easy to use, but constantly starting and stopping timers is an unnatural and inefficient way to track time. The reliance on human input also produces bad data – studies show that even when logged daily, manual timesheets are only ever 67% accurate.

In this context, frustrations with Toggl’s fiddly reporting features, limited time insights and lack of payroll support matter relatively little. Ultimately, a robust time tracking solution should fulfil its basic purpose: capturing hours accurately as easily as possible.

Switch painlessly to Timely

Import all of your Toggl projects, users, clients and tags to Timely in a matter of seconds.

What makes Timely the best Toggl alternative?

As the only time tracking solution offering full automation, Timely is the definitive Toggl alternative. Instead of making you manage timers, Timely tells you what you worked on. Here are a few reasons why frustrated Toggl users migrate to Timely.

Bill accurately for all work

Timely automatically captures the time you spend on every piece of work in the background for you. It’s a direct response to the error and guesstimation that timer-based apps like Toggl create. By producing a completely accurate timeline of each day, Timely ensures every billable detail actually makes it to your timesheet.

Minimize time tracking overhead

Instead of starting and stopping timers as you move between tasks, Timely lets you stay 100% focused on your work. In addition to automating daily time tracking, it also minimizes timesheet admin by drafting time entries for you. Free more time for the work that matters!

Report effortlessly with confidence

Timely makes it easy to translate masses of granular time data into accessible, professional reports for clients and stakeholders. Its real-time dashboards keep you on top of critical business information, including project budget spend, billable percentage, overtime and employee capacity.
