Everything old Everhour customers need to know about Everhour 2

Which version do I use?

Everhour 2 was introduced in September 2016. If you signed up earlier, you should likely log in v1.

Staying with original version (v1)

We’re currently supporting both versions of our product. 

The original version of Everhour will work simultaneously with the new Everhour. By introducing a new version, we won’t shut down the old one or force you to move away from it. You can stay with the old version as long as you wish.

However, you should keep in mind that the old version won’t receive any new features Everhour 2 can show off: automatic sync of all projects, brand new reporting, team groups and much more. Old Everhour is simply maintained and kept working.

Moving to the new version (v2)

Every team can switch to the new version anytime. Unfortunately, we can’t migrate your old data to the new version. You have to create a new account to join EH2. The data structure is entirely different which makes it absolutely impossible to automatically upgrade to a new version. Sorry about that ;(

What we offer as an option for teams – after you sign up for v2, we can save and keep your account in EH1 as long as you need it to let you see your entry history anytime. It will be absolutely free.

Again, just sign up for v2, invite all your team there, ask them to make sure they report time into the right version (see checklist) and get in touch with us to stop your old subscription.

 

Important!

If you wanna try a new version simultaneously working with EH1, please keep in mind that you have to manually change the API key in Everhour browser extension based on the version you are working with.

They are different!

Open up your browser extension settings:

Safari > Preferences > Extensions > API Key (browser restart required)
Chrome > chrome://extensions/ > Options > API Key
Firefox > Menu >Add-ons> Plugin Tab >API Key

And compare the API Key (Token) with the one listed in your account profile:

v1: https://everhour.com/profile/
v2: https://app.everhour.com/#/account/profile
