Work Fast and Never Lose Track of Your Time Again With Toggl

Many professionals work a full 10-12 hour day and still have incomplete tasks on the checklist. A recent study done by Groupon found increasing levels of stress in the modern workforce, especially around time management.[1] 20% of the respondents said they worked 10 hours/day, and 60% of the respondents said there wasn’t enough time in the day to do everything.

Where has the time gone? How did they work so long and not achieve primary goals? Typically what happens is that, you might be working effectively, but you might be trying to do multiple things or consistently distracted by interruptions and notifications.

There is a better way to track time and understand where your productivity gaps are.

A Better Way to Track Time: Toggl

It’s a web-based (also app) time tracker, but a simple one. You just click a button when you begin working on a task, then click when you stop working. Over time, you get reports on where you’re spending your time. The visual reports make it extremely easy to keep track of your time usage. See exactly how long each task takes, how many hours your team spends on different projects and clients, and who’s currently working on what.

1. One-click Time Recording

Logging time with Toggl is as easy as it can possibly be. Just click a button to start the timer, and stop it once you’re done with your tasks. Simple as that, on any device.

    You can even make it easier: Instead of always opening Toggl to start tracking, connect your timer to more than 100 web tools via our browser extensions and track time from anywhere on the web. Honestly, logging your hours can’t get any simpler. Again, simplicity is the key here because otherwise people won’t use the tool — and over 1M people use Toggl.

    2. Visual Reports

    Here would be an example:

      Now you have an example of where your time goes, so you can find a way to adjust that for the next week. Ideally it will empower better decision-making about how you spend your time. This is crucial, because most humans are not great about how they spend their time.

      Bonus: Track Budgets

      You can even use Toggl to set up projects, assign responsibilities and follow the progress. See how well your projects are hitting the estimated timelines and budgets, and immediately spot what’s overdue or over budget. Knowing this will help you plan your time and resources more accurately.
