Adding Time Tracking to Your Apps

From time to time, we come across a customer who’s decided to tightly embed Harvest into their daily workflow all on their own. Some customers prefer to have Harvest right inside the apps they use everyday, which may not be ones we already integrate with. The folks at We Are Mammoth did exactly this. When they first started to use Harvest, it was an adjustment for them. It was hard to remember to start and stop a timer, so they decided to use the Harvest Platform to add the Harvest timer directly into their issue management platform, DoneDone.

As Ka Wai from We Are Mammoth said, “The integration is magnificently easy and slick (Well done, Harvest team!). In about an hour, we had time tracking plugged into every issue in DoneDone.”

Not only was the implementation smooth, but they got the result they were looking for—more employees tracking time to Harvest. They even got some added benefits they didn’t expect:

“Clients and our co-workers can quickly access the original DoneDone issue on Harvest timesheets, which naturally will expand on the detail of work being done by the developer. This makes a world of difference for our billing department, who vets our timesheets before invoicing the client.”

If we don’t integrate with your own app, you can use our Harvest Platform to build it. We’d love to hear about it or help with any questions you may have!

To read more about We Are Mammoth’s experience with Harvest and building the integration, check out their blog post here. And check out DoneDone—over 28,000 time entries have come from there to Harvest to date!

  • We’re using Redmine here at Jonas & der Wolf in Berlin and integrated Harvest Platform right there. It made our reports much more detaile – it’s great to be able to click on a timesheet entry and go directly to the corresponding ticket!

    See our patch here: https://gist.github.com/jonasvp/4160067 (might be a little out of date but should be easy to adapt)
