Trello Time Tracking

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

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

Preparing to track your work time in Trello

Let's setup TMetric so it could correctly capture your work time from Trello. 

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 Trello. 

Tracking time in Trello. How it works

Let's create a board and some lists in it. Each list you fill with cards, in other words, tasks.

Trello

Suppose you start working on “Vulnerability checks” and want to track time for the task.

Click on the task and a task-specific dialog box opens, where you can configure the setting of this specific task. On the Actions menu, you will see the TMetric Start timer button.

Click the Start timer button and TMetric will start recording your Trello 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 Trello 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.

As you can see, the name, ID, and project of the task is the same as in Trello. It is easy enough to navigate back to Trello simply by clicking the task ID (in our case ID is #4).
