Everhour browser extension: why essential and how to install
Why to install a browser extension
While this is still possible to track time through the Everhour web site, however, our browser extension gives you a couple of significant advantages.
- It places our timer directly into the tasks that you created in a project management tool. It means that you can keep working there while Everhour brings a time tracking component to your workflow. What is more, you can add the missing time or edit the wrong time entry right here.
- You can 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 over-performed and what amount is left to finish the job.
- Being an admin in an Everhour team, you can also add a project budget or set up a billable project directly in some of the integrations (Asana, Trello, Basecamp)
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 the moment we support Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Edge. 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.
The need to have our browser extension is the reason why you don't see our timer on the desktop or mobile apps of your project management tool.
Everhour extension for Opera and Edge
We do not offer a special plugin for Opera and Edge but you can install and use Chrome extension! You only need to install an Opera addon or manage permissions in Edge and you will be able to install our extension from the Chrome Web Store.
