  • Value, cost, & yield tracking New!

  • One-click timers

    Harpoon's timers are a cinch to use. Click to start. Click to stop. Add some more details if you'd like and you're done. This is a timer that keeps up with the busiest of work days.

  • Manual hours budgeting

    Manually set the maximum number of hours you want to allow for a project and then track your time against that budget. Harpoon displays your progress, and warns you when your team is close to hitting your limit.

  • Automated hours budgeting New!

    Based on a project's fixed fee budget amount Harpoon can automatically generate an hours budget for the project to help keep your labor costs in line with your fixed fee amount.

  • Revenue forecasting New!

    Harpoon tracks your unbilled hours across all of your projects and automatically calculates a forecast of expected revenue and how that revenue will affect your yearly and monthly revenue goals.

  • Custom task categories

    Every business is unique, so you get to decide what common task categories fit with your type of work. Then tag your tracked time with your categories for easy filtering.

  • Team collaboration

    Track time and collaborate on your projects. Assign team members different roles in your business. From business partners to managers, staff to contractors, Harpoon makes it a breeze to work together as a team.

  • Weekly hours capacity New!

    You can set a maximum number of weekly working hours for each team member and then receive alerts when a team member is getting close to maxing out their hours.

  • Cost rate tracking New!

    Each of your team members can be assigned an internal hourly cost rate. This helps track the cost to your business of every hour recorded in your Harpoon account. Cost rates can be customized on a per project basis.

  • Mac timers

    The simplicity of Harpoon's web timers redesigned and packaged in a convenient desktop menubar app. Provides easy timer access for your entire team. Free download for existing Harpoon accounts.

  • Add hours to an invoice

    Tracking your time is just the first step. Getting those recorded hours to an invoice couldn't be easier in Harpoon. And you'll always have a record of which hours still need to be billed.

  • Recorded hours invoice filters New!

    When adding recorded hours to an invoice you'll have powerful date, task, team, and search filters at your fingertips to help find the exact time entries you're looking for.

  • Group recorded hours New!

    When adding recorded hours to an invoice you have the option of grouping entries by task category, by date, by team member, or as separate line items.

  • Manual time entries

    Did you forget to use the timer to track your time? No sweat. Harpoon allows you to manually enter any recorded hours entries for any dates you need without needing to use the timer.

  • Jump between multiple timers

    Do you ever find yourself jumping between client projects throughout a day? Harpoon keeps up by letting you manage multiple timers at once. Start, pause, start, and pause again as much as you need.

  • Hours entry statuses New!

    Each recorded hours entry in Harpoon is automatically given a status label based on project type and billing status (e.g. Billed, Non-Billable, etc.) so you can see at a glance where each entry stands.

  • "Actual" hourly rates New!

    There's the hourly rate you charge your client. But Harpoon can tell you what your actual hourly rate was for a project by looking at both the billable and non-billable costs that went into the project.

  • Filter and organize

    If you need to dig into the details of your tracked time then you're going to love Harpoon. Robust filters, sorting, searching, and reporting allows you to see both the big picture and the tiny details.

  • Budget time for recurring projects

    For recurring projects like retainers, Harpoon lets you set a time tracking budget that automatically resets itself based on your retainer schedule, whether that be daily, weekly, or monthly. Slick!

  • Duplicating hours entries New!

    Sometimes work can be repetitive. That's why Harpoon makes it easy to duplicate (and customize) any existing hours entry with a single click.

  • Create timesheet reports

    Collect, organize, and share your time-tracking history with custom reports. Generate unique views of your recorded hours entries and export those views in common formats.

  • Create custom hourly rates

    Do you charge differently for design work compared to administrative work? No sweat. Harpoon allows you to create custom hourly rates for each of your time-tracking task categories.

  • Custom rates per client

    Sometimes the same rate doesn't fit for all of your clients. With Harpoon you can not only customize your hourly rates on a per task basis, but also on a per client basis. We're flexible like that.

  • Custom rates per project New!

    In addition to custom hourly rates per task category and per client, with Harpoon you also have the flexibility of setting custom rates for each of a client's projects, just in case you need it.

  • Cloned timers New!

    Are your work days full of repetitive tasks? Use Harpoon's cloned timers feature to create new timers based on existing time entries with just a click.

  • Timer activity summaries New!

    What time of day was a timer last started? How much time has passed since a timer was last started? How much time was already tracked on the timer before it was last started?
