The Pivotal Tracker integration logs time entries as comments.


Connected users will be able to track time to their stories using the Hubstaff app. Users can also click the Finish button to mark the task as complete.

Tasks might not sync right away. It can take approximately 5 minutes after linking your team for tasks to populate.

You’ll need to refresh the project list in case there are any changes on Pivotal Tracker. 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.

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

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

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