Harvest ID – Signing In and More

Harvest ID is our integrated authentication system that comes with security benefits and makes it easy to access multiple accounts that use the same email address.  One single sign-in page gives you access to all of your accounts with just one email address and password, and it’s quick and easy to switch back and forth without needing to sign out and back in. 

It’s not just for Forecast, either. If your email address is also associated with one or more accounts in Harvest, our time tracking and invoicing tool, you’ll be able to access those using your Harvest ID, too!

Signing in to Harvest ID

Head to https://id.getharvest.com and enter your email address and password.

If you use a Gmail or Google Worksapce email address, you can use the  Sign in with Google button for one-click sign-in. As long as you stay signed in to your Google account (and don’t manually sign out of Harvest ID), you’ll also stay signed in to Harvest ID.

Whether you enter a password or use Google Sign-In, you may also be required to use two-factor authentication (2FA) and enter an additional code generated by an authenticator app or sent to you by email. This will happen if your organization also has a Harvest account connected to Xero. You can find more information in the article on two-factor authentication in the Harvest Help Center.

Reviewing and Ending Sessions

The  Security section of Harvest ID lets you review all of your active sessions and sign out of individual sessions or all of them at once. This can be especially useful if, for example, you accidentally left yourself signed in to an account on a computer you no longer have access to or if your computer has been lost or stolen.

To end individual sessions, head to https://id.getharvest.com and, if necessary, sign in. Click the Security link at the top right and then click Sign out for any sessions or apps that shouldn’t have access to your Harvest ID.

You can also click the  Show details link for an individual session to review details, such as the device, location, and IP address. If any sessions look unfamiliar to you, we recommend that you click the link to sign out everywhere to end all sessions immediately so no one can access or take any actions in your account without authorization. Clicking that link will also automatically trigger a password reset; please check your email to proceed with setting a new password for your Harvest ID to ensure the security of your accounts.
