Time Tracking

The time tracking column represents the total time spent on a task.

Check out our help center to learn more about the time tracking column.

This column is partially supported by our API. You can read the time tracking column via the API but cannot update it.

Reading the time tracking column

You can return the data in a time tracking column in two different formats. The text field will return the data as a simple string that displays the total time in HH:MM:SS format. The value field will return the data as a JSON string that shows all the data inside. This post from the developer community lists all of the keys in the value field.

Here is an example payload showing both fields:

  "value": "{\"running\":false,\"duration\":3600,\"startDate\":1659715755,\"additional_value\":[{\"id\":262839901,\"account_id\":12695383,\"project_id\":2973227079,\"column_id\":\"time_tracking\",\"started_user_id\":31855020,\"ended_user_id\":31855020,\"started_at\":\"2022-08-05T15:09:00Z\",\"ended_at\":\"2022-08-05T16:09:00Z\",\"manually_entered_start_time\":true,\"manually_entered_end_time\":true,\"manually_entered_start_date\":true,\"manually_entered_end_date\":true,\"created_at\":\"2022-08-05T16:09:15Z\",\"updated_at\":\"2022-08-05T16:09:15Z\",\"status\":\"active\"}]}",
  "text": "01:00:00"
