How to sign up?

Click on Try with my Basecamp and connect it with us. Next step would be to install our browser extension. And that's it! Open your Basecamp and start tracking time.

How does sync work?

Everhour automatically syncs your Basecamp projects. It also keeps track of changes of project and task titles, in order to reflect the newest title on the timesheet. This is a striking difference with other tools where they force you to manually duplicate projects, match and change them.

What if not all my Basecamp users need time tracking?

No problem. You can invite and pay only for those Basecamp users who are going to track time and use other Everhour features.

Will someone else (like clients) see my time?

Only those people who are a part of your Everhour team and installed our browser extension can see time related data in Basecamp.

How to invite other team members?

After you register Everhour account and connect it with Basecamp, you can track time only for yourself. To invite teammates, you should go to Everhour team page and manually invite your team by entering their emails. Each employee should finish signup flow and connect their Basecamp account.

Does Everhour work on Basecamp native apps?

Unfortunately it is not possible due to technical reasons. Only folks at Basecamp can decide to integrate with Everhour. Other time trackers can't do this either.
