Time tracking with Harvest 7 steps

Use Harvest to track time spent on your Flow tasks with our integration. Enable the Harvest time tracking integration for no extra charge.

If your organization uses Harvest (or is looking for a new tool) for time tracking, Flow provides an easy way to track time for your tasks directly in Flow. Organization owners can turn this integration on (or off) in Organization Preferences at any time.

To do so, click the organization icon in top left of Flow and select “Organization Settings" from the dropdown.

Now you’ll be able to select the project and task to categorize the timer. The name of the Flow task you’re tracking time for will be added to the description automatically and you can add a further description if you need to. You can also log time here so that the timer starts counting up from a certain point. When you’re done, click "Start Timer."

When you’re ready to stop the timer, just click the time tracking button and a window will open with a "Stop Timer" button. Click this to stop the timer and return to the task. Completing a task does not stop the timer from running, so be sure to stop any running timers before marking a task as complete.
