ClickTime's Slack Integration makes it easy to save time to your ClickTime account within Slack, without having to use your phone or log into our application. This guide will show you how to install/authenticate your ClickTime account with Slack.
Once you've authenticated, you can follow these instructions to track your time with the ClickTime Slack integration.
To get started, go to the Slack App Directory and click “Add to Slack” to install our Slack Integration:
On the next screen, please read the scope and permissions of the Slack Integration, select a Slack channel where the installation notification will be posted, and click “Allow”.
Enter your email address and password for ClickTime account and click “Connect”.
Once the success message appears, you have installed the integration!
Return to your Slack Workspace, and you will see a message from the ClickTime app. At this point, you have authenticated and the integration is ready to use!

Note: If you do not have permission to install Apps into your workspace, you will want to send a request to your Workspace Administrator to install the app.
If the Slack App has been installed in your Workspace, but you have not authenticated yet, you will need to connect your Slack account with your ClickTime account. To do so, navigate to the Apps section of your Slack Workspace and click on ClickTime
or type “/ct help” in any Slack channel to receive a message from the ClickTime app.
The message has a link to authenticate your account. Click the link and accept the app permission/scope. Then enter your ClickTime email address and password and click “Connect”:

Back Slack Workspace, you will see a message from ClickTime with a list of slash commands.
You can now use the integration to track your time and view your weekly summary. These steps are explained in more detail here.
Certain ClickTime customers are not compatible to use the Slack integration. These accounts are not supported:
- DCAA Companies
- Companies with Sub-jobs
- Users who have not yet consented to GDPR
