    What is Toggl?

Toggl is a time tracking software used by more than 1 million users worldwide. The Toggl Chrome extension allows users to track time from anywhere on Google Chrome browser, simply by clicking the icon, and entering the task details.Every time you create a new task in Toggl, the timer will start automatically. The timer will stop when you close the tab or window or when you click the stop button in the extension.Also, there are some features that are not included in this tutorial but still worth mentioning.

1- Integration with Slack. This integration can be used to send notifications in your Slack channel every time you start or stop a timer.2- Integration with Zapier. This integration can be used to connect your Toggl account with other online apps. For example, every time you create a new task in Toggl, it could automatically add an entry in a Google Spreadsheet.3- Integration with Harvest. A similar integration can be used to send data from your Harvest account to Toggl, so you can track time on Harvest too.

This section will cover the integration of Toggl and Amazon DynamoDB step-by-step. In order to do that, first, we will need to connect them together. To do that, we will configure the "Send notifications to Slack" feature in Toggl and set up our DynamoDB stream using AWS Lambda and API Gateway as described below:

1- Set up the "Send notifications to Slack" feature in Toggl:This feature allows you to send notifications to a Slack channel every time you start or stop a timer. First, go to "Your settings", then click on "Integrations" and finally click on "Add an integration". Choose "Slack notifications". You will see an authorization code, which you will use later to connect this integration to your Slack account. After that, go to "Team Settings" and then to "Channel & Emoji". Click on "Add Channel", name it "Toggl Notifications" and copy/paste the authorization code into the corresponding field. Now you can select which channels should be notified every time you add or remove a timer.2- Set up the DynamoDB stream using AWS Lambda and API Gateway:In order to set up your DynamoDB stream, follow these steps:First, open up your AWS Console and click on Services > Lambda . You will see a blue box saying " Create function ". Click on it and then click on "Skip" at the top right corner of the page. Then, enter a name for your function (e.g. Toggl_DynamoDB_Stream . and choose NodeJS as its runtime environment. Then click on "Create function". On the next page, click on "Create trigger" and enter "TOGGL_TRIGGER" as the name for your trigger. Also, choose "CloudWatch Events" as its event source type, select the name of your region for "Event source execution role" and leave the other options as they are. Click on "Next". On the next page, leave all the default options as they are except for one. Click on "Add event source mapping template" at the bottom of the page and enter {"aws:dynamodb". { "tableName". "tasks", "keyConditionExpression". "aws:sourceArn == 'arn:aws:dynamodb:ap-southeast-2:123456789012:table/tasks' }} as its value. Now click on "Next". On the next page, enter {"json":true,"maxItems":5} into "Payload structure" text box and choose "TOGGL_SLACK_CHANNEL" from drop-down menu next to it. Then click on "Next". On the next page, enter {"trigger":"TOGGL_TRIGGER"} into "Filter pattern" text box and choose "TOGGL_SLACK_CHANNEL" from drop-down menu next to it. Then click on "Next". On the next page, enter {"condition". "{"expression". "${body}","} into "Value condition" text box and choose "TOGGL_SLACK_CHANNEL" from drop-down menu next to it. Then click on "Next". On the next page, click on "Publish" at the top right corner of the page and copy/paste the URL into your browser's address bar (e.g. https://dynamo-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.execute-api.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/dev/stream . Also, copy/paste this URL into your Slack channel so people can read all messages coming from this stream into their Slack channel (e.g. https://hooks.slack.com/services/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX . You can also customize which fields are being sent into Slack by editing the JSON template file (see below. That's it! Now this stream will connect Toggl with Amazon DynamoDB every time you add or remove a new timer in Toggl. You can now create some tasks in Toggl and watch them being written into your Amazon DynamoDB table!3- Configure the JSON template file:As mentioned above, you can modify which fields are being sent into Slack by editing the JSON template file located at /var/www/html/lambda/toggl_dynamoDB_stream . Each line represents one message sent into Slack, so if you want to send only specific fields into Slack, just use only those lines whose keys match with the fields you want to send into Slack (e.g., if you want to send username , app_name , start_date , end_date , duration , tags and project_id into Slack, delete all other lines starting with // . The format of each line is as follows. <field name> . <data type> <optional . true|false> ; <optional . true|false> <optional . true|false> . Here is an example of how this file looks like for me. // project_id . string true; username . string true; app_name . string true; start_date . string true; end_date . string true; duration . string true; tags . string true; // duration . string false; tags . string false; project_id . string false; username . string false; app_name . string false; start_date . string false; end_date . string false; // tags . array[string] false; project_id . array[string] false; username . array[string] false; app_name . array[string] false; start_date . array[string] false; end_date . array[string] false; // username . string true; app_name . string true; project_id . string true; projectId . number false; tags . array[string] false; userId . number false; // tags . array[string] false; userId . number false; 2- Integration with Zapier:The same procedure described above can be used to integrate Amazon DynamoDB with other online apps such as Zapier . For example, every time you create an item in Amazon DynamoDB table named tasks , Zapier will add an entry in Google Sheets containing information about that specific item such as Project ID , Task Start Date , Task End Date , Duration , Tags and User ID .
