Podio integration with TimeCamp adds the ability to log hours for your tasks and items within the organization. TimeCamp synchronizes tasks and item from your Podio and adds them to the projects in TimeCamp which saves their structure. Then you can count up time spent on each task from Podio 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 Podio on the list of available addons and click on “Enable” button.
Click on the green “Enable the integration” button.
You’ll be redirected to Podio (it would be a good idea to be logged in to Podio already) and asked for a confirmation to enable the integration. Click on the green “Grant access” button.
Wait a couple of seconds. You’ll be redirected back to TimeCamp. Here you can decide which workspaces would you like to track time on in TimeCamp. Check them. Note that additional options will appear with items you can import as subtask for specific workspaces (apps, items and tasks). Mark desired ones and click on “Save” button.
TimeCamp will automatically import all of your selected items. From now on you will be able to track the time spent on each assignment. Go to Project Management page. Note that selected workspaces and tasks are already there, under the main project simply called “Podio”. Workspaces are imported as subtasks of this project. You can now track time using TimeCamp’s timesheets, or using our mobile or desktop applications.
If you’re using Google Chrome, you can install our plugin to track time spent on tasks directly in Podio.
If you’re missing projects from the integration, please make sure that they do not have “Completed” status marked in Podio.
Any item with this type of status will automatically be archived in TimeCamp, disabling possibility to add new time to them.
Automatic time tracking
If you wish to track time automatically, you can setup custom Podio field which would import keywords into TimeCamp.
For that to work, make sure to name that custom field exactly “TimeCamp keywords“. Separate keywords with commas (,).
