"Timecamp has become an essential part of my work flow. I am very happy to be able to track time in this way as I have tried many, many tools and integration with Slack is the simplest and easiest to use."
Slack is a platform for team communication - everything in one place, instantly searchable, available wherever you go. Offering instant messaging, document sharing and knowledge search for modern teams.
Slack integration with TimeCamp adds the ability to log hours for your tasks and items within the organization. TimeCamp synchronizes tasks and item from your Slack and adds them to the projects in TimeCamp which saves their structure. Then you can count up time spent on each task from Slack in TimeCamp. Additionally, you can invite your team members assigned to the task so they could monitor their time as well.
Note: to enable the integration you’ll need administrator’s privileges. To start the integration login to your TimeCamp account go to the Settings (1). Navigate to the Addons bookmark (2).
Find Slack on the list of available addons and click on “Enable” button.
Click on the “Add to Slack” button.
You’ll be redirected to Slack page and asked to grant TimeCamp authorization to access data from your account. You can decide about channel in which you’ll get TimeCamp notifications (1). To continue, click on the green “Authorize” button (2).
You’ll be redirected back to TimeCamp. All your channels will automatically be imported as tasks for you to track time on.
