Toggl Insights is Here!

You may have heard of a little something we’ve promised called Toggl Insights. Well, it’s here!

 

We’re very excited to introduce a brand new platform on Toggl called Insights. This tool will give you actionable business intelligence based on all your Toggl time tracking data.

You can now try the beta version by clicking the navbar icon as shown here:

 

All paid Toggl plans will have access to Insights beta – the final product will be exclusive to Premium and Enterprise workspaces.

What does Toggl Insights give me?

Insights is designed to give you a detailed overview of how your business is doing – what’s bringing in the money, what’s working and what isn’t.

The beta version lets you try out two new key features:

  • Project profitability charts – to visualize how much revenue a work project is generating you, and how it compares to what you’re spending on it.
  • Labour costs for team members – this lets you add a cost of labor to each team member, including any and all taxes.

More charts will be added very soon – we’ll be keeping you posted about them here.

We’d love to hear your thoughts

Insights is still in beta, so we want your feedback – and every ounce counts.

Try it out and let us know what you think!

 

Over and out,

Toggl Team

  1. How are you calculating the project income? It doesn’t seem to be tied to anything in the data i.e. a project we have is 230 hours at £100/ph and it’s saying the project income is £42,275? Surely the project income should be £23,000?

    • Hey Tim, could you write in to support@toggl.com so we could take a closer look at your account and see what might be off? A bit more info on the Project itself would also be very helpful. Thank you in advance!

  2. Would be nice if there would be an option to define fixed costs per month. Then the graph would show the whole situation taking rent, salaries etc into account.

    Also if you have monthly salaries that are not based on how many hours you work the current system is a bit cumbersome. You need to define a non-billable project and every day everyone has to add all non-billable hours to that project to get the costs visible. Fixed costs would help with this also.

  3. I see Martin a few comments below me mentioned this. I was playing with the beta this morning. I set the billable rate for all my employees, however the insights graph only shows me my cost for the day/week, doesnt factor in the billable rate. I tried setting a project to “billable” and even entered in a fixed rate for that project, even though I have multiple billing rates depending on which employee completes that task. Still no luck, the insights graph still only displays my costs no profits.

    Thanks for the opportunity to play with the Beta, hope we get the kinks worked out and get to actually use it. Seems like a good feature.

  4. Nice, but not showing the cost event if set on the team members.

    Any ETA on when this will be up and working?

  5. Thanks for this upgrade. But right now the team costs are not displayed correct. I did set the individual costs for each active team member, but the insight graph only shows my own costs. Might the reason be that i didn’t set the costs for our inactive members? If so, it would be great if you could enable the account admin to set costs for inactive members without activating them.

    • Thanks for letting us know Martin — you’re right, and we’re looking in to it right now. 🙂

  6. Offer the beta to the unpaid customer, and use it as the best way to make your case for why they should be a paid customer. This has worked on me a number of times, it’s why I happily pay for a number of other services.

    Or perhaps you guys have such efficient customer acquisition methods that you don’t need to do what everyone else is doing?

    • Hey Johnny,

      Thanks for your response. We considered opening it up to the field, but there were some technical limitations behind the fold that made it make a lot more sense to keep the beta exclusively for users on paid workspaces.

      If you’re interested in trying it out on a free account, there’s always the option to subscribe to a paid plan on a free trial as well.

  7. Sounds good, however it would be good to offer this to all paying customers, it would be beneficial to small businesses as well.

    • Thanks for your comment Matus! We agree that this will be very beneficial to small businesses – in general, we’re working on building Premium to be very ideal for small-to-medium size teams/companies. 🙂

  8. Thanks for the suggestion, Toni. We’ve had a similar suggestion from others as well actually, so it’s definitely something we’ve looked into — there are unfortunately some big technical challenges to implementing it into our current system. Nevertheless, our developers are certainly thinking on the problem. Thanks again for your feedback. 🙂
