Enabling Toggl

Note: In order for Toggl to connect time tracked with the appropriate person, each user will have to set up the integration with their own API key.

First, make sure you have the Toggl Chrome extension

Second, make sure you enable time tracking in your Spaces where you want to track time. Note that an admin must do this.

Now, when you go back to a ClickUp task, you should see the Toggl button visible in task view

Simply click this button to start (or stop) tracking time in Toggl. 

If you do not see the Toggl button above, that means you need to give Toggl approval to access ClickUp. To do this:

  1. Click the Toggl button on your Chrome extension
  2. Click the Settings gear icon
  3. Search clickup.com  in URL permissions, and check the box next to clickup.com
  4. Click Allow  

Sync Toggl with ClickUp

The awesome thing about the ClickUp + Toggl integration is ClickUp can actually automatically sync time tracked in Toggl with tasks inside of ClickUp.

You heard me right!

Not only can you start/stop time tracking without leaving ClickUp, but you also can associate time tracked with ClickUp tasks automatically. And we're adding time tracking reporting as we speak. 

How to enable syncing with Toggl:

  1. Go to Profile Settings  
  2. Click Time Tracking 
  3. Click the Toggl  tab
  4. Go to your Toggl profile: https://toggl.com/app/profile
  5. Copy the token from the API Token field
  6. Paste the token into ClickUp

ClickUp also has native time tracking through the ClickUp Chrome Extension.

Time logs not showing on a ClickUp task or in reporting? The Toggl timer needs to be started from a specific task window in ClickUp or the task ID will need to be added into a time-log's description to be recorded in your ClickUp Workspace. 

Otherwise, the Toggl time log will need [#taskID] in its title to sync back.
