What is timr?

With timr you digitise your work and project time recording. timr offers a web application and a terminal for corporate use. Field service employees record their time via (offline) apps. Times are tracked quickly and easily via a simple Start/Stop function. Lengthy retrospective recording of working hours is now a thing of the past.

Working time recording, project time recording, and logbook are combined in one application. This saves time and ensures that your employees are able to work more efficiently. When using timr for field staff, you have the option of enabling location tracking when starting and stopping tracking for better logistics and customer documentation.


How Can I Set Up the Integration of timr and Personio?

You need to generate new API credentials for this integration in Personio at Settings > API credentials. In most cases, when selecting an integration in the drop-down menu, the system automatically preselects the system attributes that need to be read or written by the integration. You can always add or remove attributes manually if they are needed, or you wish to do so. For more information on how to do this, have a look at our help center article on how to generate and manage API credentials.

The integration will then be set up directly by timr. You will need to enter your preferred synchronization interval, as well as the Client ID and Secret. To generate users in timr, simply send a user export file from Personio to timr. The synchronization process is then finalized by timr.


Which Data Is Transferred?

As soon as the integration is active, the attributes date, start time, end time, pause, as well as comment for the corresponding employees' attendances are transferred to Personio. All new attendance times recorded in timr are then automatically transferred to Personio at the selected synchronization interval. Synchronized attendances are also automatically locked in timr.
In addition, it is possible to record overtime compensation with the integration through the attendance type "time compensation" within timr. In Personio, 0 working hours are then posted on the corresponding day, which reduces the working hours account by the corresponding hours and ensures the correct recording of overtime compensation.


How Much Does It Cost?

As a Personio customer, you benefit from a low-cost Personio plan (limited to time tracking). For more information, please contact timr directly.
