Everhour browser extension: why essential and how to install
Why to install a browser extension
To see an embedded timer into your project management tool, you need to install our browser extension. This is still possible to track time through Everhour, however, an extension gives you a couple of significant advantages.
First of all, it places our timer directly into the tasks that you created in a project management tool. It means that you can keep working here while Everhour brings a time tracking component to your workflow. Managing tasks and tracking time comes hand by hand. What is more, you can add the missing time or edit the wrong time entry right here.
The second advantage is the option to see the time of colleagues they spend on team tasks and estimate the time they need to dedicate to a task. This all allows you to see who under- or overperformed and what amount is left to finish the job.
If you did not install and authorize our extension, you won’t see anything of the mentioned above.
Download / Updates
When you work on different computers and with different browsers, each of them should have an extension installed. At this moment we support Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. Usually, we force you to install an extension during registration, however, you might skip this step, intentionally or not. For such case, an extension is available to download on a separate page too. Sometimes you may need to refresh your page or even restart your browser (Safari) to see the embedded functionality in your project management tool.
An extension method works only for browsers. This is why you don't see our timer in the desktop or mobile apps of your project management tool.
