Next Week: Switch Projects On-the-Fly

UPDATE (6/14): This update is now available to all users. Enjoy!

The Harvest Platform is about to get even easier to use. Next week, we’re launching an update that will allow you to track time entries to Harvest without first linking them to Harvest projects. From now on, you’ll be able switch between projects on-the-fly from a dropdown in each timer window. This small but significant change will bring an increased level of flexibility to the Harvest Platform that many of our customers have let us know they need.


For those who do not need or want to switch projects, fear not! After the change rolls out, the Harvest Platform will remember which projects you had previously linked to your application and show them in the project dropdowns for each entry. While you’ll now be able to change projects, you don’t have to if you’re happy with the current settings.

This is just the beginning of some exciting news for the Harvest Platform. Stay tuned for more next week!

Important Notice for Harvest Chrome Extension Users

Along with this update, we’ll be rolling out a version of the Harvest Chrome Extension that will need to be granted new permissions. This auto-update will cause the timer icon in Basecamp, and the Track Time button in Trello, to disappear until the extension is granted access to these apps. To grant the extension permissions:

  1. Open Chrome, and click the Chrome menu.
  2. Select Preferences.
  3. Next, go to Extensions.
  4. Next to Harvest Time Tracker, check Enabled.

  • Yes! Thanks for this improvement!

  • Will multiple people using the same board be able to bill to their Harvest accounts? And switch Harvest projects from main list view? We use a list for each project, so each list would bill to its own Harvest entry.

  • Please allow us to change customer on Recurring invoices, without needing to re-create the invoice!

    • @Eric – You’re welcome! Enjoy!

      @Erica – You can sign into multiple accounts from the platform, so yes, you can track time to different Harvest accounts (then bill for those accounts). If I’m not quite getting what you’re asking, let me know, or feel free to write us at

      @Rolf – We’re not working on that feature at the moment, but thanks for your feedback!

  • Way cool! Some extremely valid points! I appreciate you penning this
    post and the rest of the website is extremely good.
