Track time to Harvest right from Trello cards with our Trello Power-Up or our Chrome extension. The Power-Up lets you track time from Trello using any browser you’d like, as if it were built right into Trello, and shows you snippets of Harvest data within Trello. You can also track time in Trello with our Harvest Chrome extension, but it’s limited to the Chrome web browser and doesn’t display Harvest data.

Attach a Time Report to a Card

The Harvest Power-Up button has the option to Attach Time Report to a card. This will add a report that shows who tracked time to the card, and for how long. Administrators and project managers can see the team’s time, whereas regular users will not be able to see anyone else’s time other than their own.

Total Time Tracked to a Board

In the upper right corner of a Trello board, you can see the total time tracked to Harvest for all the cards on that board, by all members of your team. All customers who have the Harvest Power-Up enabled can see this, regardless of their permission level.

Total Board Time

Notes about the total time calculation:

  • Archived and deleted cards will be included in the total time count for the board.
  • Cards moved from another board will not be included in the total time count for the board. Their time will always count towards the board they were created on.

FAQ

Do Harvest Projects/Tasks and Trello Boards/Cards sync?

No, you’ll have to manually set up projects and tasks in Harvest and boards and cards in Trello. You can check out the third-party app Zapier if you’d like to automate this.

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