The Time Doctor 2 Chrome Extension will allow you to track time directly from your project management tools like Jira, Trello, Teamwork Projects, and Asana.  This article will explain how to set up and use this feature.

How the Chrome Extension works

The Chrome extension inserts a start/stop button into Jira, Trello, Teamwork Projects, Asana, and other apps that it integrates with.

The Chrome extension syncs with the desktop app, so any task and time tracked with Chrome extension will appear in the desktop app, and also in reports in your account on the Time Doctor website.

Install the Chrome Extension from this page.

Once you have the Chrome Extension installed, you can use it by navigating to any task in your Jira, Asana, Teamwork Projects or Trello accounts.   With a task open, you will see a Start Timer button on the page.  

Click this button to start tracking.  Click Stop Timer to stop tracking time. 

You will see that the task and project have now been added to the lists in your desktop app.

How to activate the Chrome Extension for your company

To use the Chrome extension, your company must be using the Interactive (not Silent) version of the desktop app, and the Projects & Tasks feature must be enabled (see screenshot below).

If the Chrome extension isn't already activated for your company, an Admin can activate it on the Company Settings page (Log into your account, click your company name in the upper right corner, and then click the edit (pencil) icon)

Once the Chrome extension has been enabled, your existing employees will see a notification in their desktop app that will prompt them to install the Chrome extension. When you invite new employees to join your company, they'll be prompted to install the Chrome extension as part of their setup process.
