Tracking time to tasks with the Hubstaff Chrome extension

With our new Google Chrome Hubstaff extension, you’ll be able to track time to your tasks directly from the integration site itself.  This can be done through convenient Timer buttons that will appear next to your assigned tasks while signed into the Chrome extension app.

In order to track time to tasks first you must download the time tracking Chrome extension. Currently, the integrations that are supported are:

  • Asana
  • JIRA
  • Teamwork Projects
  • Trello

The Hubstaff timer buttons will appear alongside any assigned tasks, as shown in the examples below:

Teamwork Projects:

These task timer buttons will only appear once you’ve integrated with the associate project management tool into your own Hubstaff organization. To learn more about that process, please refer to our guide here.
The Chrome extension has limitations with how well it tracks activity. Its limited to 15 second granularity. That means if you do something once every 15 seconds, you will have 100% activity.
In order to properly display the “start timer” button on the third-party project management website, you’ll want to click on the refresh button on the Chrome extension. This will allow us to fetch for task assignment changes on the server and display the ‘start timer’ button next to your task.
