Redbooth Time Tracking Integration Setup
If you use Redbooth for project management, you can use Hubstaff to track time to Redbooth projects and individual tasks. You’ll have no problem importing all of your team’s tasks by following the steps below.
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 organization owners and managers are able to connect integrations.
If you choose to write back time into Redbooth tasks, the time tracked will appear on the comments as shown here:
To get started, make sure you have the correct organization selected in the top right corner of the screen, then click on Integrations on the sidebar menu and select the Redbooth logo from the list of available integrations.
If you aren’t logged in to Redbooth already, you’ll be asked to sign in. Enter your Redbooth email and password then click the Login button.
After logging in, you’ll be asked to authorize Hubstaff to access your account. Click the Authorize button to continue.
After authorizing the integration, you will be taken back to Hubstaff to select the Redbooth organization you’d like to integrate. Select the Redbooth organization then click Next.
Next, you’ll be asked which projects you’d like to connect to Hubstaff from Redbooth. Click on Sync all to connect all Redbooth projects, or Select from a list to manually choose specific projects.
You’ll be taken to the Add users page, where you can connect users to your integration. You can select/unselect all users, choose individual users, and/or automatically add new users to this integration in the future. Click Finish to complete the integration set-up.
Each individual team member will be sent a confirmation email with a link to connect their Redbooth account.
After clicking the link, you’ll be taken back to Hubstaff to authorize the integration. Click the Connect button to continue.
You’ll be taken to the Redbooth page to login to your Redbooth account. After logging in, the set-up is complete.
Your integration will sync in the next 30 minutes or so. Once it has synced, any of your linked users will be able to see their assigned Podio tasks in the Hubstaff app and be able to track time to them.
Select the project name from the project list located on the left side of the app, then click the Play button next to the task name on the right-hand side. Redbooth supports task completion, and you can press the Resolve button to mark the task as completed.
Time tracked to Redbooth tasks will be written back on the comment section of the task page.
Tasks might not sync right away. It can take approximately 5 minutes after linking your team. Also, please keep in mind that each time you add a new project or user to your project management tool, the integration needs to be refreshed in Hubstaff for those changes to take effect, then link those accordingly.
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.
Subtasks are not supported with this integration.
Tasks synchronized with an integration will remain in Hubstaff as a simple task if the integration is deleted.
