YouTrack InCloud 2018.3 Help

Clockify Integration

The Clockify extension for Chrome lets you track the time you spend on YouTrack issues. You can then edit and manage time entries in the Clockify web app, mobile app, desktop app, or browser extension. All your time tracking data is synced in real time so you can seamlessly switch between devices.

The integration with Clockify is only available for YouTrack InCloud instances that are hosted from the myjetbrains.com domain.

Setting up the integration is seamless and requires no configuration. All you need to do is install the Clockify extension for Chrome. Once installed, a button that lets you start and stop a timer in Clockify is added to the issue toolbar in YouTrack.

Using the Clockify Extension

The Clockify extension lets you track the amount of time spent working on issues in YouTrack. You don't even have to be logged in to your Clockify account to track your time.

To start tracking time, click the Start timer button in the issue toolbar.

To stop the timer, click the Stop timer button. You can also stop the timer directly from the browser extension or in the web, desktop, or mobile client.

stop Clockify timer

If you switch to a different issue and start the timer there, the timer for the previous issue stops.

When you stop the timer, the time entry is saved to the Time Tracker section in Clockify.

Here are some additional tips for using the integration:

  • The projects in YouTrack are not synced with projects in Clockify. This means that you can assign time entries to any project in Clockify independent from their project assignments in YouTrack.

  • Clockify does not sync with the time tracking feature in YouTrack.
