Start Clockify timer from within other web tools, like JIRA, Trello, Asana, Todoist, and others (see integrations page for the full list).

Simply install the Chrome extension or Firefox extension, and a timer button will appear in your favorite web app's tasks, to-dos, issues, leads, events, etc.

The browser extension is open-sourced so feel free to create new integrations or improve existing ones.

Syncing projects and tasks #

The extension can also pick up project name from another app if there's a project in Clockify with the same name (eg. example, you have a "Project X" in both Clockify and Asana/JIRA/Trello/Todoist).

Clockify extension can also create and select projects, tasks, and tags based on the integration:

  • If there's a project or task with the same name in Clockify, it will be selected
  • If there's no project or task, and you have the permission to create it (based on workspace settings), a new one will be automatically created and selected

To enable creation of projects/tasks/tags, you first need to enable it in the extension's Settings.

Note: each integration is different. For example, task and project can be created from Asana, Gitlab will also pick up tags, but Gmail won't do anything except pickup description.

If you need support for this in other integrations, feel free to contribute code to the extension on Github.

Disable integrations #

If you don't want the button to appear in certain web apps, you can disable it in Integrations (open extension and click on the menu icon in the upper right corner).

If you use a self-hosted / on-premise version of some app (like JIRA or Gitlab), at the bottom of the Integrations page you can specify your domain where you have the app installed.

FAQ about integrations #

I get an error about missing project when I try to stop the timer #

If you have Timesheet enabled, project is automatically a required field. To stop the timer, you'll have to open your timer and select a project.

Tip: you can set a default project so each time you start a timer, project is selected automatically (you can enable it by opening the extension and go to Settings).

I'm using on-premise version of some app #

No problem. In the extension options, select "Integrations", scroll down to the bottom, select the tool you're using (eg. Gitlab), and enter your custom domain.

Help, I don't see the button #

If you don't see the button, first make sure you're logged in to the extension. If that doesn't help, restart the browser.

Also, make sure the integration is enabled in URL Permissions (when you open the extension, click on options icon in the upper right corner).

If you still don’t see the button, send us an email and we'll look into the problem. Sometimes integrations breaks due to update in other apps. If you don't want to wait for us to fix the integration, feel free to help us out by contributing to our codebase.

How can I get my favorite tool added? #

The extension is open source so anyone can contribute. If you've developed an integration, be sure to let us know so we can feature it on our Integrations page.

Adding your tool requires basic web programming skills (HTML, Javascript, Git) and can be done in a couple of hours.
