Harvest, a Beautiful Invoicing App

The challenge of good time tracking

  • Time entry using Excel spreadsheets
  • Weekly time sheets that ask for super-detailed info for each task: start and end time, duration, project name, task type, employee name, etc.
  • Hard-coded task lists that never quite describe what you have been doing, and no option to add your own descriptions.
  • Mandatory fractional input, forcing you to type 4.25 instead of 4:15

Harvest to the rescue

Expense tracking

I’m adding an Uber expense. Harvest warns me that I’m declaring billable expenses on an un-billable project.


I’m creating a freeform invoice, with two tax rates and a discount.

My experience with Harvest

A page from the Expense Report which lists all billable expenses with their corresponding scanned receipts
