Everhour’s Basecamp time tracker benefits
Here is a bit more details on how Everhour integrates with Basecamp
and what advantages it will give you
Time and estimate along tasks
With Everhour, you can easily track time in any task within Basecamp. You will see the timer and reported time next to the task title as well as the total time by each section (list) and the entire project.
Time in task details
In the task details, you’ll see the reported time by each employee and its progress towards the original estimate. You can track time using timer or log time manually at any time.
Budget near project title
With the help of Everhour, any project in Basecamp can have a budget set in hours or money. You can even set up an advance notification.
Mark any task as “non-billable”
Everhour lets you configure any project or employee as billable or not, but also to automatically exclude certain tasks time from the billable amount calculation.
Why choose Everhour?
Here is why Basecamp + Everhour is the best time tracking integration on the market
1. Quick setup

2. Less employee teaching
You don’t need to explain to your staff how to use additional software. Time tracking controls will appear right inside their Basecamp interface, making it easy for them to track time.

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.
No problem. You can invite and pay only for those Basecamp users who are going to track time and use other Everhour features.
Only those people who are a part of your Everhour team and installed our browser extension can see time related data in Basecamp.
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.
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.
