Google Calendar for Tempo Timesheets

Abstract

How to install and access Google Calendar for Tempo Timesheets

Integrating your Google calendar with the My Work Calendar in Tempo Timesheets allows you to see all your scheduled meetings and other events there. Then you can quickly log time by just clicking on the event cards in My Work. If you add the Jira issue key in the title of the Google calendar events (such as INT-45 Meetings), Tempo will pick up the issue key and so that you can log time to that event in just one click!

See Connecting Your External Calendars to My Work for more information.

Note

Tempo does not store any information from your Google calendar, and calendar events are visible in My Work only while the Google calendar is connected.

To access and install the app:

  1. Select Apps Apps.jpg in the Tempo sidebar.

  2. In the Google Calendar tile, click Install.

  3. You will be directed to sign in to your Google account. If you have more than one Google account, select the one you want to display in your My Work calendar, such as the one for work-related events.

  4. You have two options when connecting to your calendar, you can either connect to the:

    • Enhanced Calendar with automation: This option includes Tempo Automation which helps you log time faster by displaying your calendar events as activities in your Activity Feed. (include exactly what kind of data will be stored). After selecting Sign in, you'll be prompted to connect to a calendar of your choice.

    • Basic Calendar connection: This option offers basic functionality without automation. No information is stored.
