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.

    I would recommend this software to anyone who has trouble remembering deadlines or staying on top of important tasks. However, if you can remind yourself in other ways it may save you some money.

    Pros

    I looked into this tool a couple years back when I really needed a tool to help me stay organized and on top of deadlines. Tick has come in handy so many times and has reminded me of so many things that I would have forgotten about.

    Cons

    This is a very lovely feature as time grew on I have become more computer savvy and realized I can set deadlines straight from outlook or through my calendar on my Iphone. It does make sense to have all reminders in one place and that i why we continue to use Tick.

    Daily I load my hours worked for a special client, who pays us for hours and needs to see the detail of what actions we perform during that time.

    Pros

    Taking into account that it is a simple tool, time tracking is simple to do and adding hours only takes a few clicks. I like the possibility of changing the days in which to add the time used from tabs, access is much easier.

    Cons

    The view of hours charged per month seems a bit untidy and basic; when there is a need to have a monthly control over the tracked hours, the tool falls short and it is confusing to see the summary.

    Tick time tracking software may not be the most sexy, or have the most bells and whistles. That said, it does what it says it will do very well and is the only time tracking software to support recurring retainers without any screwing around. That said, there used to be a desktop app that worked great but was abandon for a chrome extension. The desktop app was much better and didn't rely on your choice of browser.

    All in all, it's a reliable software that is easy to use and doesn't overpromise what it is.

    Pros

    Easy time tracking, recurring retainers, solid reporting options.

    Cons

    No desktop time tracker, no pacing widget (it would be great to see a trend line with budget vs actual over a period of time)

    Great tool for easily tracking time and autofilling tasks that are recurring.

    Reviewed on 2018-05-03

    Pros

    Ability to click and prefill a tick entry with a previously entered item so I don't have to re-enter everything. I also like that I can access my tick from various locations and they are all sync'd. So, starting a timer in one place shows up in another.

    Cons

    I'd prefer to enter time manually as 1:45 for an hour and 45 minutes instead of 1.75. Other than that, it's efficient for my needs.

    Meh.

    Meh.

    Pros

    it's easy to set up, find and edit projects.

    Cons

    I don't like that there are only a certain amount of Ticks available to use, I think i have 50, and I don't know if you can change that, since I'm just the end-user and not the purchaser. I also would like to have a pop out window to use, instead of constantly have to go back to the site to change, stop and start a project, very annoying.
