What is Harvest?
Harvest is, simply put, an online time tracking application. Harvest works on the basic concept that your time is recorded on a per project basis and that each project belongs to a client. This allows you to easily generate an invoice for a project or at the client level depending on your own billing needs. In addition your time can be recorded against tasks to get detailed reports on where your time is spent on a project. Some of the key features of Harvest are outline below.
