Pivotal Tracker Time tracking

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

Below is the instructions on how to integrate TMetric with Pivotal Tracker. 

Preparing to track your work time in Pivotal Tracker

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

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 Pivotal Tracker. 

Tracking time in Pivotal Tracker. How it works

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

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

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

If you have the status of Owner or Admin when first starting the timer for the issue, TMetric pulls out from Pivotal Tracker 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. The name and ID of the issue are the same as in Pivotal Tracker.

You can easily navigate back to Pivotal Tracker by clicking the issue ID (in our case ID is #109438244).
