Synchronize time entered via 7pace with a number column within your monday.com boards. Having a number of worked hours present on items opens many possibilities of how to report time spent on your projects directly within monday.com boards.
How to use integration recipes?
Integration recipes are the easiest way how to get basic reporting of spent time directly from monday.com boards and dashboards. You don't get breakdown by dates and people, but total number of hours can often be enough to keep track of planned hours vs. tracked hours or to calculate amount to be billed.
For example, you can set up two Number fields on an item:
- 'Hours planned' where you specify number of hours planned for this particular item (that can represent a project, a task, etc.).
- 'Hours spent' that will be filled with a total number of hours actually tracked on this item in 7pace Timetracker.
Then, whenever you track or modify hours in 7pace Timetracker, the 'Hours spent field will be populated with the value from 7pace Timetracker.
Now you have total hours in a monday.com column, you can use it in any way that monday.com provides, such as:
- Projecting total hours to a parent board by using the 'Connect boards' feature and mirroring the 'Hours spent' column.
- Or comparing planned vs. actual hours by utilizing 'Hours planned' and 'Hours spent' columns in dashboard widgets (like in the image, below).
When using Integration Recipes, please make sure that your monday.com plan supports a high enough number of actions - the limits are described in monday.com documentation. Even with moderately large boards, you will easily end up with thousands of used actions.
