Disclaimer: TimeLoggr is a third party Chrome extension that is not affiliated with or maintained by Assembla in any way.
TimeLogger was recently brought to my attention and since a lot of Assembla users track their time in tickets, I thought it would be helpful to provide a walkthrough for this useful tool.
TimeLogger is a free Chrome extension available in the Chrome Web Store - click here to install. Once installed, you will see a clock icon in your Chrome extensions bar. The extension will recognize your Assembla session, so you must be logged in to Assembla for the extension to work.
Clicking on the extension will display an expandable list of your projects and tasks you are assigned within each project.
A. Clicking on your profile picture or name will open Assembla’s view of recent time entries across all projects. This view also allows you to manually input time entries.
B. The orange tasks box will display how many tickets you are assigned. Clicking this area will open your active tickets view within Assembla, displaying all tickets that are assigned to you across all projects.
C. You can click on any tasks to open the Assembla ticket in a new browser tab.
D. From the extension, you can click on the ‘Start’ button for any task and to begin tracking time associated with that tasks. Once you have started tracking time for a task, the view will change:
You can comment on the ticket from this view but it is important to note that entering a comment and clicking the ‘Stop’ button does not add the comment. To add a comment, you must type the comment and hit Enter on your keyboard.
At anytime, you can click the “Stop” button and your time entry will be created and associated with the ticket.
If you track time in Assembla, the TimeLoggr Chrome extension is a simple, handy tool that can save you some time. Thank you optini for developing this extension and making it available for everyone to use.
