Regular Users: Integrations

This article is for Regular Users. Learn more about permissions.

Besides our own apps and browser extension, Harvest integrates with a number of other services to make it easier for you to track time wherever you are. Below is a selection of integrations built by us or by trusted third parties, but you may also want to look through our Apps & Integrations Directory to see everything that’s available.

Calendar integrations

Google Calendar and Outlook.com Calendar

These integrations allow you to pull calendar events into your Harvest timesheet, making it easier to record time spent in meetings, etc. Learn how they work here.

Project management integrations

These integrations allow you to track time to Harvest projects and tasks from within the other tool’s interface so that you don’t need to have another browser window or tab open for Harvest. In Harvest, the notes for a time entry tracked via these integrations will automatically populate with a link to the relevant card, issue, or task in the other tool.

Asana

Depending on your permissions in Asana, you may be able to enable this for yourself, for a team, or for a workspace. Details on this integration are available here.

Basecamp

This integration requires our Chrome browser extension. Details are available here.

JIRA

Only someone who’s an administrator in JIRA can enable this integration. Details are available here.

Trello

There are two ways to integrate with Trello. One way is to use our Chrome browser extension. Once you have that installed, you’ll be able to track time to Harvest projects and tasks from within Trello.

The other way is to use Trello’s Power-Up functionality, which is available in any browser. Power-Ups are enabled on individual Trello boards. On any boards with the Harvest Power-Up, the top right will show the total time tracked to cards on that board. Simple time reports can also be attached to individual cards, although Regular Users will only see the time they themselves have tracked to the card.

Details on both options for this integration are available here.

Issue tracking and customer support integrations

Zendesk

This integration allows you to track time to Harvest projects and tasks from within Zendesk’s interface so that you don’t need to have another browser window or tab open for Harvest. In Harvest, the notes for a time entry tracked via these integrations will automatically populate with a link to the relevant Zendesk ticket.

Only someone who’s an administrator in Zendesk can enable this integration. Details are available here.

Developer tools integrations

GitHub

This integration allows you to track time to Harvest projects and tasks from within GitHub’s interface so that you don’t need to have another browser window or tab open for Harvest. In Harvest, the notes for a time entry tracked via these integrations will automatically populate with a link to the relevant GitHub issue or pull request.

This integration requires our Chrome browser extension. Details are available here.

Other integrations

Slack

This integration lets you track time right in Slack and see whether another team member is currently working on something, so you can decide whether it’s a good time to send them a direct message. Only an Administrator in Harvest can enable this.

You can see all of the slash commands here. Note that for Regular Users, the /harvest status command will only show whether the person in question is currently tracking time, not what they’re currently working on. In addition, Regular Users can’t use the /harvest budget command themselves, although they can see a budget report that an Administrator or Project Manager shares with a channel they’re in.

You can find a few frequently asked questions here.

G Suite

Only an Administrator in Harvest (who’s also a G Suite Super Admin) can enable this integration. Once it’s enabled, you can export Time Reports and Detailed Time Reports to Google Drive as spreadsheets.

When viewing the report, click the Export dropdown at the top right and select Google Drive. You’ll see a new spreadsheet in the My Drive section of your Google Drive.

Zapier

Looking for an integration that we haven’t built yet? Zapier can help you connect Harvest to most—or maybe even all—of the other tools you use throughout your day. You can see a list of suggested “Zaps” here and find out more about connecting Harvest with other services on Zapier’s own website.

The team at Zapier has set up these connections, so for any questions or troubleshooting, we recommend you contact them directly.

IFTTT

IFTTT can help you create simple connections between Harvest and other products you use every day. Learn more about how to get started and what you can do with Harvest in IFTTT here.

The Harvest API

If you’re familiar with using APIs to create your own integrations, you can find a link to our API documentation along with some common questions here. Note that Regular Users can only use the API to see their own timesheet.
