How to track time in GitLab

  • Step 1: Create an Everhour account

    Sign up for free and install our browser extension. This is how we embed controls into the GitLab interface. We support all popular browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge.

  • Step 2: Connect Everhour and GitLab

    After signup, Everhour will automatically sync all your projects. Sync happens periodically so all new projects that you create in GitLab will be visible in Everhour reports. Everhour also updates the names of tasks or projects if they were renamed in GitLab. This way Everhour reports will always show you the freshest data.

  • Step 3: Invite your team

    You need to invite your team to join Everhour. They will also need to connect their GitLab accounts and install our browser extension. Only those you invite into Everhour will be able to track time and see time progress (not necessarily all GitLab users). Your clients or guests will not see anything in GitLab unless you invite them.

  • Step 4: Track time inside GitLab

    You can track time using the timer or log time manually. You’ll see the time reported by each employee and its progress.

Is Everhour easy to connect with GitLab?

Yes. Just sign up with Everhour and invite your team. The next step would be to install our browser extension. And that's it! Open your GitLab and start tracking time.

How does Everhour for GitLab work?

After integration, Everhour embeds controls into the GitLab interface and thus extends it with many useful features. You can keep tracking time from GitLab, through the Everhour website or browser extension.

Why choose Everhour for time tracking in GitLab?

GitLab native time tracker is simple and easy to use. However, it is quite basic and lacks some essential time tracking features. For example, time approval, tracking vacations, and other leave types, project billing and budgeting, invoices based on tracked time and expenses, etc.

What if not all my GitLab users need time tracking?

No problem. You can invite and pay only for those GitLab 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 free browser extension can see time-related data in GitLab.

Does Everhour work on GitLab native apps?

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

It does not only give us the ability to track how much time we have dedicated to a project but also to estimate how much time a particular task will need in order to be completed next time and by who. Easily create and save reports with just a few clicks”
