Connecting with Teamwork
How to connect
There are 2 ways to connect Teamwork to Everhour: during the signup on step 2 and by going to the Integrations page in your account and clicking to add new integration. You will need to enter your API token that you find in Teamwork by going to Edit my profile>API and mobile.
Everhour will sync projects you have access to. You can be a user of both a standard license or contractor in order to track time. Sync happens periodically and automatically, so all new projects that you create in Teamwork will be automatically added to your Everhour account with some delay. Everhour also changes the names of stories or projects, if they were renamed in Teamwork.
We don’t allow time tracking in archived projects. We no longer see a connection to such project, so time entries from it disappear from Time page of members and supervisors. Admins still see them as Active in Everhour but with no members assigned and reported hours remain in reports and other dashboards for Admins.
Everhour does not connect your projects that don’t allow API access. You need to visit project settings in Teamwork and grant permission.
To disable your integration with Teamwork, 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 Teamwork
To see the embedded timer in your Teamwork, you need to make sure you have our browser extension installed and authorized after you established 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.
We can’t show the timer if you have a custom domain. Please contact us first. When you have an extension, you can:
Track time in Teamwork tasks using the timer. You will what others reported into a task if you open it.
Add time manually or edit previous time entries.
Set estimates on your to-dos and users who work on tasks.
Making Reports with Teamwork data
There are a number of columns that shows specific data coming from Teamwork.
- Workspace shows the name of a Teamwork Team.
- Project and task show the names of Teamwork projects and tasks respectively.
- Iteration shows the name of a section.
- Task number and status show the task id and its state.
- Lable will show you the names of your tags.
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 Teamwork 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 projects you wish to connect and where you don’t want to track time.
We cannot sync with a Teamwork native time tracker, so everything you tracked before is not imported to Everhour.
Another important thing is to understand that we cannot always immediately deliver updates you do in Teamwork to Everhour. For that reason, you need to resync your projects on Integrations when you delete, create or rename a project, and to resync issues of a project from the Projects page when changes are made inside a project (you renamed a task, added a new label, edited time).
