TimeThis Update For Basecamp And activeCollab Users

May 29th, 2012 Posted by activeCollab API, Basecamp API No Comment yet

Recently, Basecamp and activeCollab issued updates to their project management software, both of which affect TimeThis.

In the case of Basecamp, the new upgrade eliminates time tracking altogether. The folks at 37signals who own Basecamp say they don’t track time, they don’t understand it so they didn’t include it in the new version.

If you would like to express your interest in having time tracking available in the new Basecamp, 37signals has provided subscribers a survey to help them understand how users engage in time tracking.

In the meantime, TimeThis continues to work properly under Basecamp Classic and we recommend sticking with that for now.

We will continue to support TimeThis for the Classic version and if in the future 37signals decides to open up the API for time tracking support in the new Basecamp software, we will support that as well.

As for activeCollab, their API wrapper library has not been updated to work with the new upgrade to activeCollab 3.0 and therefore does not work with TimeThis.

There are no issues with TimeThis on the earlier 2.0 branch and again, we recommend using that for now.

We are following changes closely and will update our own info on the TimeThis blog as more information is gleaned. Please subscribe to our RSS feed to receive these important updates.

We are hopeful both Basecamp and activeCollab will resolve these issues quickly.

Thank you for your continued support.
