Setting up Hubstaff for FreshBooks Time Tracking

FreshBooks Time Tracking Setup

It’s now possible to track time to FreshBooks task in Hubstaff. To do this, you’ll need to set up the integration in your account. Here’s how you can do that:

IMPORTANT: You must connect your account in order to see tasks that are assigned to you.

Connecting an integration allows for time to be sent back to the third-party software.

Step 1

Click on “Integrations” on the sidebar menu. Then make sure you have selected the correct organization on the top right corner of the page. Next, select the Freshbooks logo from the list of available integrations.

Step 2

You’ll be taken to a screen that will ask you to enter your FreshBooks site URL. It will look something like “https://yourusername.freshbooks.com” with “yourusername” replaced by whatever your actual FreshBooks username is. When you click Next, it will take you to FreshBooks so you can authorize the integration. Click “Allow.”

Step 3

Once you’ve done that, all that’s left to do is to connect your FreshBooks users/projects to your Hubstaff users/projects. See how to link your Hubstaff projects and users and finish the integration setup.

Once your projects are linked, you can link your users the exact same way within that same page. Just scroll down past all of the projects and you’ll see the users.

Please note tasks might not sync right away and 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 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.

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.
