Breeze Hubstaff Time Tracking Integration Setup

breeze integration header

If you use Breeze for project management, you can use Hubstaff to track time to Breeze projects and individual tasks.

First, you must connect your account in order to see tasks that are assigned to you. Also, connecting an integration allows for time to be sent back to the third-party software.
Only the user with an Owner/Organization manager role on Hubstaff can set up an integration.

Time tracked from the Hubstaff application will sync back to the Breeze to-do under the time tracking section.

Here are the steps to set up your Breeze Integration:

Step 1

To get started, make sure you have the correct organization selected in the top right of the screen, then click on Settings & Policies > Integrations on the sidebar menu. Finally, select the Breeze logo from the list of available integrations.

Step 2

The first thing you need to do is obtain your API token from your Breeze account. You can follow the link in the Breeze instructions or you can go here (when logged into your account): https://app.breeze.pm/profile and then click on the Integration tab. You will find your API token at the top of that page.

Go back to your integration setup page, then enter a name for your Breeze integration and then copy and enter the API from your Breeze setting page into the API token field. Click Next to continue.

Step 7

Users need to login to Breeze. Enter the API token on the form field, then click Connect.

Note that each user will need to enter their personal API token from Breeze to properly authenticate. To obtain their personal token, login to the Breeze homepage, then click here: https://app.breeze.pm/profile.

After authenticating, you will now see Breeze to-dos should flow back to the Hubstaff application.

Tasks might not sync right away. It can take approximately 5-10 minutes after linking your team. The integration needs be refreshed in Hubstaff in case there are any changes or additions to the projects for those changes to take effect, then link those accordingly.

 

Step 8

Users will be able to track time to Breeze to-dos by selecting the project name, then clicking the Play button next to a to-do.

Time writeback

On the Breeze task, you will see time written back as shown here:

Currently, when you add a new project in the project management third-party provider, you need to access the integrations page in Hubstaff > refresh the projects list > link the new project > assign team members to the Hubstaff project that’s linked to the newly added project.

Tasks can be completed outside of Hubstaff in the project management tool to have the time synced as well.

This integration supports logging time back to the integration as time entries. To learn more, click here.

Tasks synchronized with an integration will remain in Hubstaff as a simple task if the integration is deleted.

Subtasks are not supported with this integration.
