TimeTracker Feature: “Google Calendar Sync”

FEATURE 3: GOOGLE CALENDAR SYNC
How cool would it be if you could invite a few colleagues to a Google or Exchange meeting and have that meeting AUTOMATICALLY APPEAR on their private TimeTracker timesheets, with the correct billing code?!! It’s not only possible…it’s easy!

TimeTracker can automatically sync with your Google Calendar so that specific activities will automatically appear in TimeTracker. It’s super convenient…and automatic! And remember that since TimeTracker is 100% private, no one else will see this meeting information…unless you choose to include it on your submitted timesheets. You must share this with your team! It will make everyone’s life so much easier!

Here’s how to configure Google Calendar

1. Go to your TimeTracker Account Settings (upper right pulldown in the browser). Next to “Google Calendar” there is a button that says “Authorize.” Push that button and Google will guide you through the simple authorization process. When you are done, the button will be replaced by the word “Authorized.”

2. In your Google Calendar, simple put the characters “#TT” (without the quotes) in the Description of any Google Calendar activity…and save that activity. Note: If you want to include the project information, you would simply append “#TT” with a dash and the TimeTracker JobID as shown in the picture below. #TT-JobID
