the app is easy to use. I am on the go I can create a time sheet on the fly. I attach tasks directly to the client. I can upload expense receipts from my phone directly to my project. I take a few minutes to complete my tasks instead of having to head back to the office and regroup and complete the tasks. the app makes the process much more efficient. I also like that when I exit out of the app it does not stay open, I must reenter my password, thus protecting my clients and myself. I like that my recent activities are the first screen I see. It keeps me current as my teammates enter their activities and we move the company forward and on track.
OK - So I am updating my review because this latest release fixed a lot of the issues I was having. I think the performance issues I have now are due to my device, because when nothing else is running - this app rocks and is fast. Great for on the go updates while at my clients office. I use this on my android tablet and prefer it to using the iphone app on my ipad - although doable. Great updates - keep them coming!
I have used the iPhone and desktop versions which are slightly better but it's still very useful for my work. I use timesheets and TODOs daily so it's great if I have forgotten to submit some times for a project I can still do them on my commute home. Just an update on my review. Since the updates the WorkEtc app is much cleaner and easy to use. I work from home for part of the week and it has proved invaluable for keeping contacts close to hand or being able to quickly check our work calendar to see if staff are in the office. Performance-wise the app is a lot more snappy and responsive and the design and layout have been overhauled to good effect. A definite recommendation for WorkEtc users.
Update for latest version: The latest updates have really improved the app. Nothing has been taken away, so all the good stuff from my original post still applies. The contacts page has become great. The ability to quickly filter the list (and to do so with all the options available) is amazing. So easy to use. Secondly, being able to view the knowledge base on the go is a godsend. We keep settings and various client info in our KB and it was terrible not being able to figure out which server I'm supposed to connect to (or whatever) when I can't get to the website. Orig (shortened): It looks a lot prettier and has a lot more similarities to what you can do on the website. Things that make this especially useful for me: 1) The ease of adding timesheets. If I want to add them via a timer, there's an option for that. If I want to add an entry after that the fact, with all the details I could possibly need, there's an option for that too. Both are super useful options when you're away from your desk but want to make sure you've properly recorded your activities. 2) Support cases. Really useful to be able to see how far along you are with support cases when on the go.
Currently, I am using Work[etc] primarily as CRM and project management tool. This products allow us to keep close contact with our clients and manage internal development projects such as websites. When I first took a look at the Android mobile app, the first thing I noticed was the color association. For me it was red for Support Cases, and orange for Projects. This really helps to distinguish the work areas I use the most. There are 3 areas that have the same color orange (Tasks, Projects, Time Sheet), however icon association helps to distinguish the difference very easily. Another obvious benefit is the mobility of this app. If I am out running an errand and need to respond to a customer, the application makes this very easy, and helps improve customer response time! Also one of the great features over a desktop application is the Snap a Picture. This is much easier to do with a phone or tablet. This is VERY effective and a time saver when debugging client issues. If I had to add one thing I would add Smart Lists to the menu screen. This is a great feature in Worketc.
Compare to some other ticketing systems out there, this app is great. I like that both the Android and Apple OS apps have the same functionality. I have this installed on several versions of Android and they all work well. Our time keeping has gotten much better since it is so easy to add time. I also like that this app isn't a super stripped down version of the service.
