What makes Timely the best Harvest alternative?
Offering automatic time tracking, Timely is quite a step up from Harvest’s heavily manual functionality. Instead of making you consciously track time on every task and plug in notes, Timely captures everything you work on down to the second! Here are a few reasons why Harvest users switch to Timely.
An alternative to Harvest’s manual timers
Feel Cullen’s pain? You’re not alone. Almost every time tracking app currently on the market shares Harvest’s essential design error: manual timer input.
Constantly starting and stopping timers is an unnatural and inefficient way to track time — particularly if you regularly hop between projects or responsibilities. It also leaves you extremely vulnerable to expensive inaccuracies . Even if you remember to log your hours every day, studies show that timesheets that rely on manual input are only ever 67% accurate.
In this context, Harvest’s broad feature set and free plan matter relatively little. Ultimately, a robust time tracking solution should satisfy a very basic purpose: capturing hours as accurately and as easily as possible.
