Toggl helps users to track time-based tasks and projects, either through a task timer or manual entries. Toggl's reporting features allow users to track the time spent on various projects and analyze productivity.
Now, with the Toggl integration, you can get all of your insights from Toggl into your monday.com account and better manage your time spent on tasks, invoices, projects and more...
How to add it to your workflow?
Once you click on the Toggl integration banner you will find the recipes the integration offers:
- When an item is created, create a time entry in workspace in project
- When an item is created, create a project in workspace
- When a session in time tracking is stopped, create a new time entry in workspace in project
- When a time entry is created, create an item
Select the automation you wish to create!
Once you click on one of the recipes you will be asked to connect your monday.com account with your Toggl account by adding the API Token. Get the API Token from your profile settings on your Toggl Account and add it here:
Congrats, you are connected to your Toggl account!
Once you've chosen one of the recipes and inserted your token, you will get to the integration setup window. This is where you will be able to configure your automation with the relevant Workspace and Project in Toggl.
When an item is created, create a time entry in workspace in project
This integration recipe is helpful to ensure that every task you enter on your monday.com board is being tracked in your relevant project on Toggl. For every new item created, a new time entry will be created on your Toggl project.
To set this up, go to the board that you want to track open the integration, as per the instructions above. Enter the underlined fields - choose the relevant Workspace in Toggl:
Then choose what Project:
Now, every time you create a new item on your board - a new time entry will be added to the Project in your Toggl Workspace.
Do you also want to connect a time tracker to be able to start and stop time entries? Use the integration automation "When a session in time tracking is stopped, create a new time entry in workspace in project":
The recipe "When a time entry is created, create an item" might cause a conflict with the first recipe "When an item is created, create a time entry in workspace in project"
If you have both these recipes on the same board, it will create a loop. Think about it: if you create a new item, it will create a time entry but if you create a time entry it will also create a new item. 🤯
From January 30th 2020, we came up with a solution to potentially block this loop. If you now add both recipes in your board (after that date), you will experience a short loop of only two items created.
If you had the first recipe active in your board prior January 30th, we recommend you to delete it and recreate it.
We are actively working on better solution so stay tuned!
