New! Time Tracking For Jira

Timeneye’s goal is to help you manage your time effortlessly. Today, we take an extra step: you can now track time directly in Jira.

The time tracking integration for Jira – powered by the Timeneye Browser Widget, and by our native connection– will allow teams to be more productive and effective with their time – without losing focus on real work in Jira!

This integration is the first step to connecting seamlessly Timeneye and Jira. In the future, we intend to expand the integration in the future to allow an even better synchronization with Jira’s tasks.

How To Track Time In Jira, With Timeneye

  1. Download and install the Timeneye Browser Widget
  2. Sync your Jira and Timeneye accounts
  3. Go in Jira and look for the Timeneye Button

Step One: Download And Install The Timeneye Browser Widget

The Timeneye Browser Widget is a useful little addition to your stack of productivity tools. It allows you to track time wherever you are on the web.

The Timeneye Widget also integrates with a variety of software – now, it integrates with Jira as well.

So, download and install the widget. It’s available for Chrome and Firefox.

Use your Timeneye credentials to log in to the Widget. All you need are your Timeneye username and password.

Step Two: Sync Your Jira And Timeneye account

Leave the Timeneye widget on the side for a moment to go in the Integrations section of your Timeneye workspace.

Look for the Jira icon in the integrations list.

Hello, Jira!

Here you can sync your Jira to Timeneye, for a seamless integration.

Click the button to connect Jira and Timeneye. You’ll be asked to grant permission for our integration to sync.

After you’ve done that, you’ll be able to 

  • Import any new Jira projects in Timeneye, automatically;
  • Link any existing Jira projects with the Timeneye ones;
  • Link the users in your Jira account with your team members in Timeneye.

The sync can be 100% automatic thanks to the Synchronization settings:

However, if you want more control over what you import from Jira, you can use the manual mode in the Manage section. This will allow you to handpick the project you want to import.

A similar process can be done for users. Only one thing though: unlike other of our native integrations, the synchronization only links users, not imports them: that’s because Jira can allow users to not have an email address. This unfortunately is not compatible with how user invitation works in Timeneye.

Step Three: Go In Jira To Track Time, With The Timeneye Widget

Now, back to your Jira account. The Timeneye Browser Widget will add a small clock icon in your Jira issues:

Just click on the clock to track time. Yes, it’s that easy!

You can start tracking in the Register time dialog

When you click on the Timeneye button, you’ll see the Register time dialog appear, where you can select the Project and Phase.

Clicking on the Jira issue to expand will also show a second Timeneye panel. You can use this little panel to track time, and also to see how many timers/entries you have tracked for that issue as a whole.
