How to automate Harvest time tracking

Clockk • July 10, 2023

Harvest’s biggest flaw is that you need to start and stop a timer to track your time. Timers are easy to forget, which leaves you with inaccurate data. On the other hand, if you do remember the timer, it disrupts your work flow, making it very difficult to juggle multiple projects and clients. Free yourself of the start/stop timer by using Clockk with Harvest to automate your time tracking.

This guide will show you how to automate Harvest with Clockk in just 4 simple steps.
