Track time to Harvest right from Trello cards with our Trello Power-Up or our Chrome, Edge, or Firefox Extension. The Power-Up lets you track time from Trello using any browser and shows snippets of Harvest data on your Trello boards and cards. Our browser extensions also allow you to track time directly in Trello, but they don’t display Harvest data.

You can also celebrate time tracking with your teammates on Trello using Harmojis.

Attaching a time report to a card

FAQ

Do Harvest Projects/Tasks and Trello Boards/Cards sync?

No, you’ll have to manually set up projects and tasks in Harvest and boards and cards in Trello. You can check out the third-party app Zapier if you’d like to automate this.

Once you track time to a card in Trello, Harvest will remember the project and task that you tracked time to, and you’ll never have to select them again!
