Welcome to TimeCamp Help!

Teamwork


Teamwork is a project management tool, that focuses on collaboration between users in assigned projects and tasks. Thanks to TimeCamp integration you can track time on your tasks.


Description 

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 Teamwork account of the person who enabled the integration. 

Projects will be imported as tasks under the Teamwork project. Lists with their tasks will be imported as subtasks under the tasks (projects) in TimeCamp.  

We provide an option to select projects that should or should not be imported from Teamwork to TimeCamp. After the integration is enabled and you selected the desired projects all lists and tasks the owner of integration has access to, will be imported to the Projects module in TimeCamp.

It is not possible to edit the structure of imported items in TimeCamp.

As an integration creator, you automatically gain access to all imported items. Other users are assigned automatically based on their email addresses, which need to match in both TimeCamp and Teamwork. You can always assign tasks manually as well. If users are assigned to the main project Teamwork they will be able to track time to all tasks under the Teamwork 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.

Tracked time will be automatically exported to your Teamwork account. Just open a project and navigate to the Time tab to view the history of added time.


Tasks, lists, and spaces marked as archived or deleted in Teamwork will be automatically moved to the list of Archived tasks in TimeCamp. Items marked as completed in Teamwork still will be active in TimeCamp. If you create a new item in Teamwork 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 Teamwork integration is a browser plugin that allows tracking time within the Teamwork website.

If the user who enabled the integration is not a part of your account anymore, we recommend reenabling the integration.

How to track time on imported items?

There are a few ways of tracking time in TimeCamp. After the integration is created and all your tasks are imported, you can simply select the desired task from the list and start your timer. Below you can find examples of all available ways of tracking time.

Web Timesheet. Simply select a task using a search box or the drop-down list and run the timer

Desktop app. Click on the “No task” option in a task widget or use the option “Start a task” from the desktop app menu and use a search box or the drop-down list to find the desired task. The task widget will be automatically synchronized with your web Timesheet.

Mobile app. Go to your Timesheet in the mobile app and click on the “Add" button if you want to create an entry manually or on the “Start” button if you prefer to track in real-time. Next use a search box or the drop-down list to find the desired task and start tracking.

Browser plugin. If you’ve installed the browser plugin and logged in to your TimeCamp account, a start timer button will appear next to all your tasks in Teamwork. Just open the task and click on the green “Start timer” button to start tracking. When you finished tracking just click on the red “Stop tracking” button. The browser plugin will be automatically synchronized with your web Timesheet.
