You are just a few steps away from integrating TrackingTime and Asana and enjoying the convenience of time tracking.

How to integrate with Asana

  1. Install the TrackingTime browser extension for Chrome, Firefox, Safari or MS Edge.

  2. Log in or sign up to TrackingTime through the browser extension:​

  3. Enable Asana to integrate with TrackingTime.

  4. In Asana, you’ll see the button next to the task name, click on it to start tracking.

  5. Use the shortcut to get into TrackingTime right from Asana.

💡 Edit your tasks while tracking and fill the details that you need such as assignees, billable/non-billable, hourly rate, due date and more.

📝 The Button will automatically identify the task and project you've selected and sync this data in your TrackingTime account.

If the task (or project) doesn't exist in your account yet, we'll automatically create them using the names we detected.

Supported Entities

Here's the list of the supported features that are expected to be passed from Asana to TrackingTime:

  • Project names.

  • Task names.

  • Subtask names (will be passed as tasks in TrackingTime, but not as subtasks).

  • Custom fields (created in TrackingTime and populated from Asana).

  • Start time.

  • End time.

  • Duration.

  • Notes.

⚠️ Any other entity not mentioned on the list above (such as comments, collaborators, or due dates) will not be considered when tracking.

Import your CSV

If you want to migrate to TrackingTime, and move all your current projects and tasks into our application, or just import your projects without the integration need, you could export them into a CSV, and import the exported into your TrackingTime account with our importer tool.

Troubleshooting steps for Asana

If you are having issues with this integration, then please try these troubleshooting steps to fix them:

1. First, please ensure you have installed the latest extension version.

2. Check you are logged in on the Button extension, with the correct account.

3. Make sure you allow the extension access to the application by enabling the domain.

4. Check you are using the latest file version of domains.

After trying these, navigate to the app and look for the Play Button.

If the button is still lost, refresh the page.

If the button is still missing, then you can just close the browser entirely and re-open it.

⚠️ Since our integration with Asana depends on the browser extension to work, it is not supported on other versions of Asana, such as desktop or mobile applications.

If the problem persists, please send us:

  • The name and version of the browser you are using.

  • Name of the application where you are trying to see the extension.

  • The URL of where you expect to see the button

  • Full screenshot on the URL with the extension open

  • Full screenshot of the extension settings
