- (2020-10-03) Carol Hunneyman: This is terrible. They are forcing us to go to the NEW FreshBooks by Nov 2020, and the timers are not up to par yet. I frequently PAUSE and do other things. Their on-page timer doesn't have a pause. So I got the Chrome extension and that's a mess. Very unstable. Very scary right now - I am not sure my BILLABLE time is recording properly and have to keep double checking it. PLEASE FIX ASAP!
- (2020-04-08) Reece Hart: Almost works. Tantalizingly close to being useful. Like others, I routinely experience problems with this plugin, or at least the interaction of this plugin with the backend and the timer functionality that's built into the web app. Problems include: 1) lost logs, 2) grossly incorrect times, 3) duplicate entries from a single click. It's worth noting that I often keep the FB web page up. When I start a timer in the plugin, the timer in the web page starts automatically. They seem mostly in sync for time, but not for client, project, or notes. When I log the time in the plugin, the web page timer sometimes stops and sometimes doesn't, or doesn't immediately. All of this feels like a system that's confused about the shared state of the timer, which I can easily imagine leads to race conditions that sporadically all of the observed kinds issues. Suggestion: FreshBooks should either yank this plugin and tell people to use the web app timer, or, preferably, ask a FB engineer to actually use this timer for his/her own work for a week. I'm pretty sure they'll observe the misbehavior and be able to diagnose the causes.
- (2020-01-24) Thomas D'Hoe: Hi, Does this integration also works for Freshbooks classic? Can't login in and yes, we are still on Freshbooks classic
- (2019-03-26) Saro Marcarian: The extension is flakey. Sometimes I can get by if I log into Freshbooks and just make the entry there. Freshbooks isn't friendly or flexible (or smart?) about how it stores time. What if I want to see start and end times of day and not just elapsed times?
- (2018-12-04) Jorrit Schippers: Downsides: I can't use the return key in the comments field and I can't edit the time before clicking log time. The dropdowns don't work properly, after one item is selected the other items are no longer visible.
- (2018-11-27) Matt Riopelle: Routinely deletes notes and activity when I log the time. A week can pass before I'm back in Freshbooks reviewing my time. By then, I've forgotten what I worked on and there's no notes. :(
- (2018-09-20) Amie Richardson: I just downloaded it, was excited to have a timer in Chrome finally after switching to the new Freshbooks. The timer won't start, it doesn't do anything. It appears I can log time, but can't track it. Will this be fixed soon?
- (2018-08-17) Philip Johnson: I stopped using it first because of getting logged out which has been fixed (nice start). I'm on the latest and greatest chrome, have a very fast Macbook Pro with 16GB of RAM and it brings it to a crawl. Guessing as others have mentioned that there's a memory leak issue or something similar. Not usable in its current form until they plug that problem. Great space-shuttle launch emulator because that's what your machine will sound like if you use this.
- (2018-08-16) Michael Raines: I use this extension a lot, but it's a non trivial amount of work to constantly log back in every time I want to use it. I see others are having the same issue. Would be nice to see them prioritize this fix soon. If you are considering using FreshBooks because this extension looks convenient, don't be fooled. It's annoying and this should have been fixed by now...
- (2018-08-11) Tim Mannino: It's alright.. a bit buggy but works for the most part. My biggest complaint is it seems to be a resource hog for some reason - memory leak maybe. My fans consistently blow with 80-90%CPU for 'Chrome helper' - a quick force quit of the offending process shows this extension is (always) the culprit. 2015 MBP with an i7 and 16gb DDR3 btw guys.. so -_-
- (2018-07-27) Jeremy Eastburn: UPDATE on 7/27/18: Freshbooks claimed that the logout issue was fixed in the latest version but apparently not. It worked fine for the first day, but the next day I went to use the add-on it took me to the login screen even though they claim it should keep me logged in until I logout manually. I stopped using the extension after getting logged out too often. It's easier to just fire up the web site since my username and password are autofilled, whereas the extension requires me to login almost every time and it doesn't autofill username and password fields.
- (2018-07-24) Margaret Bennett: It worked well initially, but now it doesn't open the actual time tracking interface. All I can do is manually add time. Back to using the timer from inside the website. Disappointed - this was such a useful idea!
- (2018-06-09) Gabrielle Werve: Initially, the extension worked pretty well but lately it has gotten less and less efficient. Rarely does the extension successfully log my time so I end up opening the site, logging in, and then logging my time there. This obviously renders the extension obsolete. Hoping they fix this soon!
- (2018-06-05) yasin yaqoobi: Can't log in. Keeps saying that I have to confirm my email but my email is already confirmed and I have been using it with freshbooks for the past three years. Also no new confirmation email was sent.
- (2018-05-24) Sean Perkins: Having to log in every day to use it sucks but I really do like the convenience of having the timer everywhere I go online.
- (2018-05-12) Mason Schmitt: This extension is so broken. I can login and start a timer, but the timer doesn't display if I click on the toolboar icon for this extension. I have to go into the Freshbooks web interface to view the timer, select the customer, etc. As well, if I try to view the extension's options, my entire browser window is resized down to a very small window and there is just a message saying, "Settings will be soon..." I don't see the sense in publishing a chrome extension before it's actually useful...
- (2018-04-24) Michael Szmadzinski: I can't log any time at all and I couldn't login with google which is my preferred method. It could be helpful but pining freshbooks to my browser is just as easy. Still five starts to freshbooks just not this extension.
- (2018-04-21) Harrison Thomas: Doesn't seem to work. I logged in, click start timer, and it just closes the dialog box. I click on the extension icon again and it says "start timer" still. I would expect it to say stop timer at least. But when I start a time, I want to say which client I'm tracking work for, what project/task, etc. The log time function seems to be working fine. But yeah. I wish new freshbooks could work with toggl. Toggl's chrome extension is AMAZING. It includes built in pomodoro timer. Which is huge for productivity freaks like me. To the dev team in charge of working on this: fix that bug with start timer, let the user say what task and client they're working on/for, and you've earned my 5 stars. I'll use the extension everyday. Bonus points if you can support built in pomodoro timer as well. <3
- (2018-03-14) Joshua Turmel: It's supposed to be convenient however you have to log in every day so it's more frustrating than anything. I'm already logged into Freshbook's site so I'll just continue to use that instead.
- (2018-03-14) Barney Wimbush: Intrusively keeps popping up, constantly has a window at the bottom, doesn't really work in sync that well if you have freshbooks open in a browser tab. I didn't want freshbooks showing on screen share and there was no way to really remove. Also the plugin kept logging me out. Quicker to use the website to which I'm already logged in. It's good that this exists and it's a great start but it needs a round of improvements.
- (2018-03-08) Amie Richardson: Not working. I generally log in via Google, but I can log in without it. However the site seems to want to log me into: https://my.freshbooks.com/#/login and it also doesn't take my credentials. (blue favicon) If I log in from main site, it tells me to check my credentials and sends me an email. Oh well, sure would have been nice to have this feature.
- (2018-01-06) Josh Conner: Logging in each time isn't practical. Uninstalled and went back to web page.
- (2017-12-18) Pete Fife: I did have the same issue as Trevor, but then I opened a case with FB, which of course in doing just that action it started working... I was able to login. However, you have to login to the extension every time. It's quicker for me to just log into the websit with LastPass than go through the login flow with the extension each time.
- (2017-12-12) Trevor Robertson: UPDATE -- Review changed because key bug was fixed. Overall this is good start and a great way to track your time for Freshbooks. Definitely still needs more features and functionality, but for any Freshbooks user I would say this is a must have tool already.
- (2017-12-07) Micah Fegley: I can't log in. I keep getting an alert that my email or password are incorrect. I log into Freshbooks daily with the same credentials so I know I've typed them properly... Frustrating so I'll just skip the extension.
- (2017-12-04) Arthur Wiebe: If you don't minimize the tracking widget it interferes with web sites. So you can't have the widget open on a 2nd screen or something like that. Otherwise I like it.
