Time trackers work perfectly as a standalone tool, but they are also doing great as part of a somewhat tool suite. At TimeCamp, we’re doing our best to listen to our users’ voices and add new integrations to already existed ones. But we’re also looking for more flexible solutions. Proud to announce we’ve released the Chrome Plugin for more than 70+ new apps!
As one of the time tracking Chrome extensions, it makes TimeCamp even more accessible and allows you to track time without leaving the tool you use and it hasn’t been already integrated with our app directly.
How does the Chrome Plugin work?
Our Google Chrome extension allows users to track time inside other tools they use. There’s no need to jump between the given app and TimeCamp to log working hours – all we need to do is to run the timer by clicking on our easily recognizable green button and the time entries will seamlessly appear in the timesheet in TimeCamp.
The good news is that the code for our Chrome Plugin is entirely open source. Feel free to join us on Github and contribute!
How can I get the extension?
Go to the Chrome Web Store and click the icon “Add to Chrome” from the menu on the right side. Then, for better access, make sure the plugin is visible in the extensions bar. Remember, that to use Google Chrome extensions, you have to be logged into your Google account. Also, be sure to check if you use the latest version of Google Chrome.
Now you can sign up for a new, free account or log in to TimeCamp (or it will be done automatically if you’re already logged in to the web version).Sign up for free and give our Chrome plugin a try!
Once you’re logged in and the plugin is enabled in the browser, the timer will appear immediately in the tool you use. All set, now you can start tracking working hours!
Why do I need a TimeCamp Chrome Plugin?
Tracking time is essential for maximizing everyday productivity. Especially when using multiple tools for streamlining the daily routine. That’s why we wanted to make TimeCamp even more flexible and give our users an opportunity to track time inside as many apps as we can.
With the TimeCamp browser extension you can:
- record working hours directly in the browser – in case you’re not a fan of desktop apps,
- track working hours using tools that haven’t been already included in our integrations’ list and then access the data right in the timesheet,
- track time without leaving your favorite browser (and even opening the new tab),
How does Chrome Plugin benefit you?
One Chrome Plugin works for multiple tools! It syncs perfectly with your TimeCamp account, so you can always be sure the time entries registered with Chrome extensions will appear in your timesheets. What’s more, there are many other advantages of using these extensions:
- it simplifies the timekeeping process,
- it’s entirely free (remember that now TimeCamp offers a free plan for unlimited users, check the details here!)
- many of the most popular tools don’t offer a native time tracking feature so that the browser extension is a huge help if you need a time tracker inside your favorite app,
- the installation is smooth – you don’t have to download anything, just add the extension to your browser.
You’ll find the full list of apps on our Integrations page. However, we also collected the tools you can connect with our Chrome plugin here, below – feel free to search if we’ve already included it!
