New! Track Your Time Inside Gmail With The Timeneye Browser Widget


Is it August already?!

The year is going fast and we have been working non-stop to offer you the best experience with Timeneye.

Before taking a long-awaited break, we’d like to let you know that we added a new service to our Timeneye Browser Widget integrations… Gmail!

How many emails do you have to answer to every day? If you link most workers, the answer is “a lot”.  Think about all those mornings where you spent hours just trying to get to the bottom of your full inbox.

All that time you spend taking care of email shouldn’t be lost: it’s work, and it should appear in your timesheet. This is why we have decided to add Gmail among the Timeneye Widget integrations.

Add a little Timeneye button inside your email

Once you have the Widget installed on your browser, open any of your emails and you should see a little Timeneye clock icon right next to the “more” icon:

Click the little clock icon to open the Register time panel. From there you can start a timer or enter the time manually and save it. Easy as that!

Either way, the time entry you create using the integration will have the Gmail icon and subject of the email in the “Integration info” field:

If you start a timer, you’ll also be able to pause the active timer and resume it later on. If you click on the little “Show more options” button you can see them all the timers you have for that email, as well as all the time entries.

One important thing though: the integration doesn’t currently work for new emails, but only when you reply to existing ones. We’ll make sure to fix this ASAP with the next Widget update!

Make sure to give this integration a try and let us know what you think. 🙂

Now we’ll be taking a short break to recharge our batteries and get back to work more inspired than ever.

Our offices will be closed from Aug 12th, 2019 to Aug 23rd, 2019. During this time support will be active, but might be slower than usual. If you need immediate assistance, send us a tweet @timeneye.
