Another way to track time in TimeCamp is to use a Google Chrome plugin. This plugin allows you to track time to tasks on specific project management services directly, without the need to manually change between bookmarks in your web browser. The newest version of the plugin supports +100 software! (the full list is here!)

Our plugin works in two ways

The first way is tracking time spent on tasks attached to the background, full integrations that we offer (a full list of our integrations is here). Using the plugin relieves you of the duty of selecting the tasks – the plugin will select and add them to your timesheet itself. Just press the “Start” button!

Here’s a list of our integrations that are supported by the plugin:

Asana

ClickUp

HeySpace

Insightly

Monday.com

Podio

Teamwork Projects

Todoist

Trello

Wrike

Please note that due to the latest update, Pivotal Tracker and Active Collab are NOT supported anymore.

The second way of using the plugin is to find the “Start” button on the supported software. Then you will see the bar where you can choose the task, tags, add a note and decide whether the work is billable or not. Take a look at this short video!

 

Just like in your timesheet and desktop or the mobile application! Easy, isn’t it?

Installing the plugin

You can install the extension from this link:
GET THE PLUGIN

After installing it, the timer button will be added to track time on a specific task/card.

The plugin synchronizes automatically with our servers, so all the entries you’re tracking time to will be visible on your timesheets in real-time:

Troubleshooting

For TimeCamp to properly account time to selected task/card, make sure that you have the integration with specific service enabled and properly set. You can do this by logging into your TimeCamp account and going to the integrations settings page.

If you’re tracking time to newly created tasks/cards, TimeCamp might show that as “no task” on your timesheets. In this case please wait for task synchronization, which time can vary between services. Usually, it takes one hour. You can always force synchronization on your timesheets to speed things up a bit:

 

If for some reason the timer isn’t working properly, please try re-logging in its settings. When you go to service when the plugin can be activated, the TimeCamp icon will appear on the right in the URL address bar. Click on it with your left mouse button and re-logging with your TimeCamp credentials.
