With our Harvest Chrome Extension, you can track time to Basecamp 2 to-dos. This is only available in the Chrome web browser, and the extension is not available for Basecamp Classic or Basecamp 3.

Downloading the Chrome Extension

  1. Open up the Chrome web browser, or download it here.
  2. Download the Harvest Chrome Extension.

Using the Basecamp 2 Integration

Setting up your projects

Once you have your projects set up in Basecamp 2, you’ll also need to add them to your Harvest account under Projects. Once you’ve entered your projects in both apps, then you can begin tracking time to Harvest from within Basecamp 2.

Tracking Time in Basecamp 2

Once the Extension is linked to Harvest, you can track time on any to-do:

  1. Click a timer icon.
  2. A timer window will open up. Choose a project and task.
  3. Click Start Timer or add a duration of time and Save.
  4. To stop a timer, click the running timer icon again (it will have turned blue). The timer window will open, and you can click Stop Timer.


Do Harvest projects/tasks and Basecamp 2 projects/to-dos sync?

No, you’ll have to manually set up projects and tasks/to-dos in both Harvest and Basecamp 2. You can check out the third-party app Zapier to automate this.

Once you track time to a to-do in Basecamp 2, Harvest will remember the project and task that you tracked time to, and you’ll never have to select them again!

Does Harvest have an integration with Basecamp 3?

We don’t currently integrate directly with Basecamp 3. You may want to use a third-party tool like Zapier to connect Harvest and Basecamp 3.
