Switching from Toggl to TrackingTime is way easier than you probably think; here’s how to make the switch in a few simple steps.
First off: Toggl is a great product that has been around since the early days of time tracking software when most people didn’t even know what time tracking actually was. They have been a pioneer in our market segment and did an amazing job of educating business users about the benefits of a modern time tracking solution.
That being said, over the last couple of years we have seen many Toggl customers making the switch to TrackingTime. While some of them complain about Toggl’s increased prices, lacking support, a slow pace of improvements or missing critical features they needed other folks simply fell in love with our app.
If for whatever reason, you think that Toggl is no longer a fit for your team and are looking for an alternative, you should definitely give TrackingTime a try.
And don’t worry about losing your data!
