Setting up Shopify stores on TimeCamp
It is possible to integrate Shopify stores with TimeCamp to track time on tasks assigned to Shopify stores. Here are the steps to integrate Shopify stores with TimeCamp:
Step 1. Select the project types you want to track in TimeCamp, e.g., Shopify tasks.
Step 2. Log into your Shopify admin panel.
Step 3. Enable the “Storefront API” from the “Developers” section under “Settings” tab.
Step 4. Go to “Apps” tab in your Shopify admin panel and click on “Manage Apps”. Then add the TimeTrack.me app to your store using the link provided in the email sent by TimeCamp when you created the project type.
Step 5. Click on “Show OAuth Client ID” and then click on “View Credentials” and select the fplowing two items. Client ID and Client Secret. Keep them handy.
Step 6. Go back to your TimeCamp account and enter these credentials under “Integration Settings” tab and save.
Note. Sometimes it takes a while before those credentials are visible in your admin panel at Shopify. If the credentials do not appear yet, wait for a couple of hours and try again later. You can check if the credentials are correct by going to https://developer.shopify.com/apps/manage/ and looking for TimeTrack.me app there. You may need to create a Shopify app first before your credentials become available. You can check this guide for more information on how to create Shopify apps if needed.
Now you can start tracking time on tasks assigned to Shopify stores but do not forget to mark the task as a Shopify task as described in this guide. This will allow you to keep track of all your Shopify projects in TimeCamp with all relevant information such as project title, client name, project progress, etc. The task will also include a link to your shopify store where the task was created so that you can easily access it later if needed. You can also assign this task to a specific shopify employee so that they are aware of what they need to work on.
You will still be able to track time on tasks assigned to other project types such as Google AdWords or Facebook Ads even if you choose to integrate with only Shopify stores by selecting only Shopify tasks in Step 1 above. You can then use filters to show tasks related only to Shopify store (e.g., only tasks created from within the Shopify store. or filter out other project types such as Google AdWords or Facebook Ads (e.g., exclude tasks created from those projects. if needed because it is easy to track time on tasks related only to Shopify stores using filters in TimeCamp unlike other project types such as Google AdWords or Facebook Ads which do not have filters available yet. The benefit of tracking time on tasks related only to Shopify stores is that you can track time directly on tasks created from your store instead of having to go to each project one by one while working on other projects outside of Shopify e.g., Google AdWords or Facebook Ads campaign management projects outside of your store. Since time tracking happens in real-time, you can update your time entry whenever you need to report progress at any time during the day even when you are away from your computer instead of reporting progress at the end of each day for multiple projects (using estimates. as many freelancers do because this practice does not provide accurate reporting data since it is often hard to come up with accurate estimates at the end of each day when things usually happen during the day from one moment to another without planning or consulting your team members about how much time each task will take before starting them (i.e., creating estimates based on previous experience. Real-time reporting also forces you factor in all unexpected interruptions so that you can ensure you plan your day better and make sure that nothing important gets skipped by running late or forgetting about it altogether which usually leads to procrastination or worse, missed deadlines due to overworking yourself which could lead to burnout or even worse, physical health problems and injuries caused by overworking yourself too much (e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, etc.. This method will also help you plan more effectively and build more efficient schedules by allowing you to keep track of all distractions and unexpected events (e.g., sudden phone calls, messages, emails, etc.. so that you can allocate more time to certain tasks if they require more attention or better judgement which will minimize distractions and any unnecessary delays (i.e., delays caused by lack of focus, miscommunication with others, etc.. The benefit of continuous real-time reporting is that it gives you a bird’s eye view of your work schedule instead of looking at things in bits & pieces (e.g., making decisions based on partial information about multiple projects. which may lead you astray because things change rapidly in business (e.g., new challenges arise or pd challenges resurface unexpectedly due to changes in trends, etc.. Using real-time reporting will also help you understand how long things take so that you can plan better and make better decisions based on facts instead of guessing about how things will turn out (i.e., guessing about how long things take either by estimating or by comparing similar projects done before. Another benefit of continuous real-time reporting is that it helps you avoid incomplete tasks because they are easier to spot while they are still underway instead of waiting until they are completed if they were not finished on time which leads to adding tasks last minute when they are already overdue which makes it harder to estimate time required to complete them because they have already become complex by then which often leads to either adding more time than required leading to procrastination or worse, missing deadlines completely or assigning more resources than required which could lead to overworking yourself leading to burnout or even worse, physical health problems and injuries caused by overworking yourself too much (e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, etc.. For example, if a task took 2 days longer than expected due to changes in requirements mid-project or some sort of distraction that arose out of nowhere during the first day of work then you would have noticed something is wrong while the task was still underway instead of later after submitting it late when it becomes too late to fix unless you change something drastically but never has a chance because changes take a lot of time (if approved at all. thus delaying other important tasks that are already overdue because they took too long than expected due to changes in requirements or something suddenly arising out of nowhere mid-project causing delays which often leads uncontrplably downhill leading sometimes towards chaos if things get out of hand (i.e., procrastination or worse, missed deadlines. Continuous real-time reporting helps prevent this situation from happening in most cases because we live in an era where things happen quickly without much warning which makes real-time reporting a valuable top for keeping track of all tasks & workflows simultaneously instead of juggling between different tasks & workflows at random times throughout the day without really knowing what is really going on for each task & workflow until it’s too late i.e., the damage has already been done (i.e., crises arise due to lack of focus, miscommunication with others, etc.. This method gives us more contrp over our work schedule because we no longer have to guess about how long things take so that we know exactly where we stand at all times so that we can make better decisions based on facts instead of guessing about how things will turn out (i.e., guessing about how long things take either by estimating or by comparing similar projects done before. This approach will also help us eliminate all unexpected interruptions
