Connecting with Trello
How to connect
There are 2 ways to connect Trello to Everhour: during the signup on step 2 and by going to the Integrations page in your account and clicking to add new integration.
Everhour will sync all team boards you have access to across all teams in your account. 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.
Everhour does not connect to your Personal Boards that we treat as a place to keep individual tasks nobody should see.
We don’t allow time tracking in archived boards. We no longer see a connection to such project, so time entries from it disappear from Time page of members and supervisors. Admins see them as archived in Everhour and reported hours remain in reports and other dashboards.
To disable your integration with Trello, go to your Integrations 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 b rowser 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 Everhour.
When you have an extension, you can:
Track time in Trello cards using the timer.
See time of other users.
Add time manually and provide notes or edit previous time entries. Admins can do it for others.
Set estimates on your cards and users who work on cards.
Team Admins can add a project budget and set the billable status for a project.
Making Reports with Trello data
There are a number of columns that shows specific data coming from Trello.
- 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
There are a couple of things you should be aware of. 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.
Another important thing is to understand that we cannot always immediately deliver updates you do in Trello to Everhour. For that reason, you need to resync your projects on Integrations when you delete, create or rename a project, and to resync tasks of a project from the Projects page when changes are made inside a project (you renamed a card, added new label, edited time).
