Asana Time Tracking

TMetric is a free work time tracking web app for professionals and companies. It integrates with Asana and other widely used project management systems. Use TMetric to track time spent on tasks directly from Asana.

Below is the instructions on how to integrate TMetric with Asana. 

Preparing to track your work time in Asana

Let's setup TMetric so it can correctly capture your work time from Asana. 

1. Create TMetric account. It will take a few minutes.

2. Install one of the following TMetric browser extensions depending on a browser you prefer: 

3. (optional) After registration, you can also install a time tracking desktop app, so you could track your work activity in details.

Now when you are all set, you can proceed to track work time in Asana

Tracking time in Asana. How it works

Before explaining how it works, it is assumed that you already have an account in Asana and created a project in it.

When you create or open a task in Asana, you will see the TMetric Start timer button as shown in the screenshot below. 

Asana

Click the button, and TMetric will start recording your Asana working time. Notice that the Start timer button changes to the Stop timer button and displays the time spent on the issue.  

If you have the status of Owner or Admin when first starting the timer for the issue, TMetric pulls out from Asana the project name of the issue and automatically creates a project with the same name in your TMetric account.  

The issue appears on the Tracker page in the TMetric web app. See how it looks on the screenshot below.

Time entry Asana

The name, ID, and project of the issue are the same as in Asana. Navigate back to Asana simply by clicking the issue ID (in our case ID is #156982416760576).
