Your questions. Answered!

Here is the list of the most frequent questions. If you’d have other questions or ideas — contact us.

How to sign up?

Start by registering an account with Everhour. You'll be recommended to connect your Jira account on Step 2 of our signup wizard. For Jira Cloud, we have a native add-on. And while there is no such add-on for Jira Server yet, our integration works almost the same, but using slightly different technology — our browser extension. You can find all the details and instructions on how to set up in our support portal.

How does sync work?

Everhour automatically syncs your Jira 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 Jira users need time tracking?

No problem. You can invite and pay only for those Jira 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 Jira.

How to invite other team members?

After you register Everhour account and connect it with Jira, 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 Jira account.
