Get to know Harvest

People who track their billable hours with a timer, rather than estimating them after the fact, end up with more accurate invoices (nearly always to the benefit of the worker) and more accurate future estimates. Track every minute you spend on your clients' projects, and Harvest can automatically turn them into invoices. With Harvest, you can set up and manage the rates you charge in a variety of ways, such as by the hour, by the task, or as a flat fee. When working with a team, different team members can have different hourly rates. Expense-tracking comes included, too, so you can add travel mileage, supplies, and other expenses to invoices automatically at the end of the billing period. Harvest supports multiple currencies as well.

You can even get paid through Harvest by connecting to Stripe or PayPal. When you use this integration, you can include a link on invoices to let clients pay you easily, and when they do, Harvest tracks receipt of the payment and marks the bill paid in your records.

Being able to analyze all the time and invoicing data gives Harvest life beyond its immediate uses. For example, reports in the app help you figure out realistic estimates for future work. Harvest has graphs of your team's productivity, breakdowns of where your time and money went, and a list of your uninvoiced time.

The same company that makes Harvest also offers a companion app called Forecast that helps with team scheduling and future scheduling predictions. Forecast helps you schedule work across teams and projects to ultimately get more accurate estimates of how long it typically takes to go from start to finish with your projects.

Most business apps require some onboarding or orientation time, but not Harvest. It's simple enough that anyone should be able to start using it almost immediately. It's a great tool for tracking time, whether you work solo or on a team, and especially if you need an invoicing app to go with your timesheets.
