Product Comparison - Tempo Timesheets Server/Data Center vs. Cloud

Our Server Migration Guide has a new home at https://help.tempo.io/cloud/

We will no longer be updating Cloud documentation in this space, so please be sure to check the new site for the latest documentation and learning content.

The majority of features are comparable between Tempo Timesheets Server/Data Center and Cloud, and we are continually working to ensure the parity between the two products moves that much closer.
