TimeCamp Planner is a free and simple project management software with communication and collaboration features. By enabling the TimeCamp and Planner integration you’ll be able to track time on your workspaces, spaces, and lists with cards.
The integration will be enabled to the entire account, so all users will be able to track time on imported tasks. The integration will be connected to the Planner account of the person who enabled the integration.
Workspaces will be imported as tasks under the Planner project. Projects with their lists of tasks will be imported as subtasks under the tasks (workspaces) in TimeCamp. If someone from your Team added private project in Planner and the person who created the integration has no access to those projects, they won’t be imported to TimeCamp. Only items the owner of integration has access to could be imported.
It is not possible to edit the structure of imported items in TimeCamp.
After the integration is created and the Planner items are imported, all users will be automatically assigned to the Planner project and tasks as Regular users. You can manually change their roles in this project and unassign selected users from the entire project or add them only to certain tasks. If users are assigned to the main project Planner they will be able to track time to all tasks under the Planner project structure. If users are assigned only to certain tasks, they will be able to track time only to these tasks and subtasks under the tasks’ structure.
We don’t provide an option to select items that should or should not be imported from Planner to TimeCamp. After the integration is enabled all workspaces, projects, and lists with tasks the owner of integration has access to will be imported to the Projects module in TimeCamp.
We don't provide an option to export tracked time from TimeCamp to Planner account.
Tasks, lists, projects, and workspaces marked as archived or deleted in Planner will be automatically moved to the list of Archived tasks in TimeCamp. The completed tasks will stay on the list of active tasks in TimeCamp.
If you create a new item in Planner it will be automatically imported to TimeCamp within 1 hour. To immediately synchronize the integration and update newly added items use the “Force synchronization” option on TimeCamp web Timesheet. Synch will be executed within a few seconds.
The additional functionality we provide for a Planner integration is a native plugin that allows tracking time directly within the TimeCamp Planner website.
If the user who enabled the integration is not a part of your account anymore, we recommend re-enabling the integration.
Only the Administrator of the account can enable the integration.
To enable the Planner integration, navigate to the gear in the upper-right corner and click on the Integrations option. Next, find the Planner integration on the list and click the Enable button.
Enter your Planner credentials (email and password) and click on the green Enable integration button.
That's it! Your Workspaces, Projects and Lists with Tasks will be imported to the Projects module in TimeCamp. All imported items will be accessible for you to track time using TimeCamp’s timesheets, mobile, desktop application, or browser plugin.
