When does AlignTime sync data from the Harvest time tracking tool?
During AlignTime Setup
Your first sync happens once you have authorized the Harvest time tracking tool and pressed the “Sync with Harvest” button in the AlignTime portal. This will retrieve all active time entries, projects, tasks, and users, currently within Harvest and populate the AlignTime project management tool.
We sync with your Harvest time tracking tool everyday at 8:00 PM MST
At 8:00PM MST, the AlignTime retrieves all time entries, projects, tasks, and users within your Harvest time tracking tool that have been created or updated since the day before.
Any created/updated time entries, projects, tasks, or users that happen after this process is started, will not be in the AlignTime application till the process runs the next day.
