In order for me to keep Klok at the top of my priority list (which contains paying clients’ work) I have decided to make an attempt to offset the development cost by charging for the 3rd party integration feature which will be available in the coming months. I realize that any cost is not as good as free, but what I would like to know is if people honestly feel that $20 (USD) is fair or not. Keep in mind that the personal edition will remain free. This is only for the ability to connect to a remote system. What do you think?December 5, 2008 at 8:47 pm #1345AnonymousInactive
$20 should be more than fair. Anybody that is looking to integrate with a TP system is likely using Klok to help manage a commercial effort of some kind, so it makes sense for you to charge for that feature.December 16, 2008 at 3:41 pm #1346AnonymousInactive
Definitely fair, i think that the excel integration provided suffices to integrate with a lot of systems. I know the week view saves me countless hours in report preparation for my billable hours.December 22, 2008 at 2:47 pm #1347Scott MckeownKeymaster
Thank you very much for the donationJanuary 5, 2009 at 11:09 pm #1348AnonymousInactive
$20 is VERY Fair. My personal request would be Quickbooks Integration. Anything to keep from paying Intuit’s extortion 😡 subscription fees for their web based time tracking.
Thanks and keep up the GREAT work on this very useful tool, Mr. McKeown. You can count on my financial support – I tried just now to donate $20 to your development efforts, using the Paypal Site, it was giving me endless grief. I will try again later

Direct Quickbooks integration is more complicated that you would think. There isn’t a way I can integrate directly with the data store of the Quickbooks desktop application. My intent was to integrate with their SAAS offering, but I have a long TODO list and it hasn’t made it to the top yet.July 25, 2009 at 3:42 am #1350indiralamontagneParticipant
I also think that $20 is more than fair; dude, what you’ve developed is truly awesome!
Personally, I’d love to have Redmine support. I know at least 5 more programmers that would pay for it. In general, the Redmine community is fairly big and it’s growingSeptember 22, 2009 at 1:30 pm #1351sabinamason404Participant
$20 is not a fair price… for YOU! It’s a fantastic deal for your customers. Depending on the level of integration with QB, you could be charging ten times that.
Granted this is a QB integration tool, Synergration’s AccessBooks RealTime starts at $199 for the basic version. It only pulls data from QB. If you want bidirectional dataflow, you’re looking at $348, as a starting point.
So what is your plan? API? Web Service? Data export?March 5, 2010 at 12:36 am #1352tbzadelaideParticipant
$20 is great. We just blew $59 on copies of Project 2007 Standard for a bunch of people in our office. At the $20 price point, I can either (a) afford to buy it for myself personally, and use it on the job stealthily, or (b) convince the department to buy it since it will only cost $300 for a team of 15 people.October 11, 2014 at 7:31 am #1353AnonymousInactive
