Step 3: Click Activate TimeLog

Step 4: Define the links between TimeLog and Forecast projects

User linking

In order for the integration to synchronize time registrations and work for a person, that person must be linked to its corresponding TimeLog user. This is done at the bottom of a users profile page in the section labelled TimeLog.

Synchronization

The integration runs every 15 minutes and synchronizes the following for Forecast projects linked to TimeLog projects:

Forecast   TimeLog
Task    => Task
Time Registrations <=> Work

Where "=>" denotes one-way synchronization and "<=>" is bidirectional. If a Forecast person is linked to its corresponding TimeLog user and is assigned to a task, then that TimeLog user is allocated to the task.
