Harvest integration

On this page


SWSD offers integration with Harvest Time Tracking Software. With this integration, you can:

  • Manually or automatically track your time spent resolving incidents or service requests directly in Harvest.

  • Align time spent on a ticket with a specific project or task in Harvest.

  • Report on a combination of time spent working tickets with the other activities you track in Harvest.

Enter Time

Under the project / task, you can enter time.

  • Manual entry: Enter the amount of time in the time box next to the text box, and then click Save entry. For example, if you worked 15 minutes on the ticket, enter :15 (or .15) into the text box.

  • Use a timer: Start the timer when you begin to work and stop it when your work is finished.

    Let the timer run one full minute before you work on the project / task so it can properly reflect the time you spend on the ticket.
