Connecting with Trello

This article explains how to:

  • Connect your Trello with Everhour;
  • What you can do with Everhour inside your Trello account;
  • Which columns you need to use in reports when you want to see the Trello data.

How to connect

There are 2 ways to connect Trello to Everhour: 
  • During the signup;
  • Going to the Integrations page in account.
Everhour syncs all team boards you have access to across all teams in your account as well as private boards. Sync happens periodically and automatically, so all new projects that you create in Trello will be automatically added to your Everhour account with some delay. Everhour also changes the names of cards, lists or boards, if they were renamed in Trello.

We don’t allow time tracking in archived boards. Admins can still see all the time from the archived project in Everhour using reports and other dashboards. If you also use your personal boards for work and want to track time there, you should open the Integrations page and click on configure next to your Trello connection to let us connect them to your Everhour account.
You can deactivate Trello integration on the same page. This option affects only your account, other team members are still able to track time.

Tracking time with Everhour in Trello

To see the embedded timer in your Trello, you need to make sure you have our browser extension installed and authorized after you established a connection. To check this, open your Integrations page that will show the status of our extension for the browser where you are logged in.
When you have an extension, you can:
  • Track time in Trello cards using the timer and see the time reported by others in the same card;
  • Add time manually and provide notes/edit previous time entries. Admins can do it for others;
  • Set estimates for everyone assigned on your cards that will surely help to meet the deadlines; 
  • Check your daily and weekly Timesheet, add a task and start your timer, quickly switch the days to add/edit your time entries and leave comments in the same window;

  • Team Admins can add a project budget and set the billable status for a project;

 Reports making with Trello data

There are a number of columns that shows specific data coming from Trello. Open a report builder and select any of columns to display the data in your report.

  • Workspace shows the name of a Trello team;
  • Project and task show the names of Trello boards and cards respectively;
  • Iteration shows the name of the Trello list name;
  • Task number and status show the task id and whether it is open/archived;
  • Label shows the name of Trello labels;
  • A custom field can be created as a column if you reported time into a task that has this custom field.

What else you should know

First of all, it is not possible to connect one Trello account with several Everhour profiles. We do that not to allow admins from one team to see what you track in another team. There is also no technical possibility to make a granular workspace or team sync, deciding what boards you wish to connect and where you don’t want to track time.

And the last but not least, we cannot always immediately deliver updates you do in Trello to Everhour. Please read this article if you find your reports showing out-of-date information.
