In this article, you will learn how to integrate timr's software with Personio to make time recording easier for your employees. In the following, you will get an overview of all necessary prerequisites and instructions for setting up the integration via the Personio Presence API.


What is timr?

With timr you digitize your work and project time recording. For corporate use, timr offers a web application and a terminal. Field service employees record time via (offline) apps. The recording is quick and easy at any time using Start/Stop. Time-consuming adding times is a thing of the past.

Working time recording, project time recording, and logbook are combined in one application. This allows your employees to work more efficiently and saves time. When using timr in the field, you have the option of location recording when starting and stopping for better scheduling and as proof to the customer.


How can I set up the integration of timr and Personio?

Please note that to use the Attendance API you need the Enterprise Package of Personio.

To set up the integration of timr and Personio you need the following information from your Personio account:

  • Client ID
  • Client Secret

To get the Client ID and Client Secret, navigate to Settings > API > Credentials. Select Generate new credentials.


Then the download of a file containing your credentials for the interface starts automatically.


Please note that the Generate new credentials command invalidates your previous credentials.

The integration at timr will then be set up directly by timr. In addition to the Client ID and the Client Secret, the desired synchronization interval is also required.


What data will be transferred?

As soon as the integration is active, all new presence times recorded in timr are automatically transferred to Personio in the selected synchronization interval. Transferred times are automatically locked in timr.


What are the costs?

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


Who do I contact at timr?

If you have any questions or feedback regarding the integration, please contact the timr support https://www.timr.com/s/support/.
