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.

    Great Software to keep track of hours and projects

    Reviewed on 2017-11-17

    Pros

    We have used this program for a few years now and have found it very easy to track progress on projects, log hours, and make sure that our office is running as efficiently as possible. This has been a great investment for us!

    Cons

    It took some time to get familiar with how to use the software. Adding gantt charts for project planning would be great, but overall this program fits our needs quite well.

    I have been very impressed with the FunctionFox staff and their project management software from the very beginning of the process. The sales rep. was very knowledgeable and explained the features and benefits very clearly. The samples and tutorials were great and made the learning process kinda fun.
    FunctionFox's support team are exceptional at responding to our questions and reply promptly with detailed user friendly instruction on how to take full advantage of the powerful tools and functionality. Deciding to use FunctionFox in our face paced graphic design company was a great decision. It helps us spend more time on being creative and less time retyping project names, task names, design rates etc.

    Pros

    The software is designed with the creative industry in mind. You can set up project names, common tasks with specific hourly rates. When it comes time invoice a project I no longer have to request time sheets from staff. I just log in to the software, select the project name within the appropriate dates and all of the information that I need is presented quickly and efficiently which makes invoicing easy.

    Cons

    I can honestly say that I cannot find anything wrong with this software.

    Reasons for Switching to FunctionFox

    We chose FunctionFox because it was originally designed for an advertising agency so it was a perfect fit for our graphic design company. Much like an advertising agency, we handle multiple details and aspects of a project. FunctionFox software helps to keep a birds eye view on project details, project costs and scheduling. It just seemed like the best choice for our company.

    We use this tool to track projects and our task/actions with for our clients. It does neither well. The tool is very bulky and not a great interface. It does not make tracking tasks easy, and managing my teams hours isn't a fun or easy task due to this tool

    Pros

    If you're using just for projects, than this tool is OK. It also CAN do task management and gantt chart tracking. It also can track your tasks that you are doing.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything. It is a bulky interface that doesn't do anything better or as well as their competitors. The tool doesn't make it easy to track retainers, actions, tasks, projects, etc.

    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.
