How it works

The Podio time tracking integration with TimeCamp adds the ability to log hours for your tasks and items within a company. TimeCamp synchronizes tasks and items from your Podio account and adds them to projects in TimeCamp and maintains their structure. Then, you can measure the time spent on each Podio task or project. Additionally, you can invite your team members assigned to so they can self-monitor the time they spend.

TimeCamp and Podio integration

TimeCamp and Podio integration makes working on projects and tracking time more automated.

As a Podio user, you know how helpful the software is in managing tasks and your team members.

However, for any operation to be successful, it needs more than just a helpful collaboration tool. It needs to gauge how billable time and resources are spent on assignments.

But using Podio alone to track time is a manual process, laborious and inefficient. Thankfully, Podio time tracking integration with TimeCamp automates the time-tracking process improving workflow.

Your employees can log hours using any device they like, and your managers can analyze time spent on assigned tasks without missing any billable minutes.

Also, users of the Podio time tracking app can synchronize workspaces with TimeCamp in Podio directly using the TimeCamp Chrome extension.

If your goal is to manage your business resources, collaborate with your teams, manage time well and deliver client's projects promptly? Podio time tracking integration can help you.

Integrating TimeCamp and Podio allows you to track time and execute tasks more efficiently.

Podio time tracking

Podio is a web-based application tool companies use to streamline and simplify work through collaboration. You can use it to govern your company's projects and finances, create invoices, track sales, and organize your team.

However, the application only provides manual time tracking via timesheets, which can be time-consuming and arduous.

So how do we efficiently track time without an automated Podio time tracking app

Thankfully Podio integrates with external apps like TimeCamp to aid you in tracking employee time, workflow, and productivity levels.

How time tracking with Podio works

Podio consists of features such as project management, timesheet, collaboration tools, CRM, and deliverables that you can use to create a personalized Podio workspace for your company.

The timesheet, for instance, can be used to track your employees' hours and compute paychecks manually. The timesheet app uses two different apps (open and private) for two workplaces that are created according to departments, clients, or projects.

To create a workspace and implement time tracking in Podio, click on the create workspace button in the workspace selector. Then add the Podio timesheet app to the established workspaces.

  • Use one timesheet app to store employee wage data in the private workplace.
  • Use the other timesheet app to record their time in the public workspace.

This approach allows you to protect private data like your employees' wage data and still use their payment information to determine their wages.

Your private workspace should have the following scope:

  • Task designation: Single line text field
  • Relationship: Tells the app what you are recording the timesheet for. For example, the Podio projects app, the deliverables app, etc.
  • Contact: Specifies who spent time on assigned work or project.
  • Duration: Indicates the amount of time spent on a Podio task.

Your public workspace should have the following fields:

  • Employee name.
  • Hourly wage.
  • Calculation field (hourly wage multiplied by sum duration).
  • Overtime.
  • Estimated completion time, etc.

Next, save your app and then fill out the calculation field to access data from the referenced field, such as the project app or deliverables app in the relationship field.

Now that everything is ready, here's how to use Podio to track time:

  • Set up individual items with your employee's billing period in your private app.
  • Permit your staff to log their time in the Podio public app.
  • Then evaluate the total wages for the billing periods your employee input in the calculation field from your Podio private app.

In addition to time tracking, Podio also offers task management, team messaging, sales tracking, collaborations, and other features. Even with these fantastic features, Podio cannot fully automate the time tracking process, which may cause workflow disruptions.
