Toggl For Windows Reinvented

TD 7 windows

For the past month or so we have been pushing hard to improve the windows desktop application experience. We decided that the default window frame look that windows has just isn’t cutting it with Toggl and we needed something fresh. Download it now from here.

We went with the clean minimalistic look. The new design has a sleek dark frame that seamlessly integrates with the application window itself. With this look we wanted the application to be less in you face and more easy to handle. After all, the most important part of Toggl is to help you effortlessly track your time and not focus on the application itself.

Another big improvement is the popup edit form. In my opinion this is a must have. It removes the annoying back and forth switching when editing multiple time entries in a row. It is much faster to have the time entry listing always visible. This way you can easily see what has been changed and how the changes affect the overall look of the day. Any changes you make within the popup automatically save in the listing and to exit it, you can just hit the “Esc” button on your keyboard.

There’s still much to do on our road to total awesomeness, so keep an eye out or even better – contribute by adding your own thoughts and bug reports directly to the public Toggl Desktop Github repository.

  1. Does Toggl For Windows support Windows XP ?
    I got an error saying that it is not a Win32 application.

    • Hey Ivan,

      Unfortunately yes, XP is no longer supported, Toggl Desktop only runs on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 :-

  2. Just got a prompt that the new version is newer again — any chance the client-adding functionality is part of it?

    Thanks, as always!

  3. Please fix the entering of times and dates.
    If I need to enter time after work has been completed the results is a disaster. The start-end time keeps automatically changing depending on whether you enter time as AM/PM etc. Stop the automation of this and please let us enter the time manually – thee only reason we are entering manually is because we need to so there shouldn’t be any automation here.

    Thanks,

    • Could you write to the support and specify the time input automation issue so we can look into it.

  4. Indrek, I installed the new version today and noticed that the issue with expanding the popout dropdown is fixed. I really appreciate it! That is very helpful 🙂

  5. Love the update. One thing I’ve noticed is when I’m active or hovered over the edit popup my scroll wheel either scrolls the time entries or nothing at all instead of the Tags. Would be helpful to be able to use the scroll wheel for the tags as well would be nice to see tags also expand height wise as well.

  6. OK, thanks — I’ll just keep checking back. (If I add a new project, I have to add the client it goes with; it doesn’t make sense in my records otherwise.)

  7. Has a fix been made yet that allows users to add new projects and new clients into the desktop app without having to open Toggl in a browser window? I’ve been holding off downloading the new app until that feature comes back.

    Thanks!

  8. I have a query, I have 2 users who use the same pc on different days, I have ended up with both their work being recorded under the one user using the desktop app. This is a bit awkward when I am trying to calculate wages. How do we change the user?

    They both are set up in the online Toggl as users.

  9. Another thing I noticed (a bug?) is that I had some projects where I changed the client name. Sometimes, in the desktop app, it shows the new client name and sometimes it reverts back to the old one. Either way it does always record it properly in Toggl with the new client name.
