Configuring Advantage for TimeTracker

TimeTracker has a wonderfully seamless integration with both Advantage Aqua and Sapphire, supporting both the web-hosted and on-premise versions. 

 
 

Follow these steps to configure Advantage:

  1. (For on-premise deployments only) You must have the Advantage API service running locally.  
  2. Within the Advantage software, create a user account for TimeTracker.
    • Note that usernames must not contain any special characters.
  3. Within Advantage, configure this TimeTracker user account to be "API Enabled" 
  4. Your Advantage account must have API licenses for all named users.  If unsure, ask your Advantage representative for how many API licenses you have.  

Create or identify A TimeTracker user Account

Create a user within Advantage.  This could be a new account or simply associated with an existing account.  Just be sure to pick an account that will never be deleted or closed. (ie: Do not associate with the Advantage account of a freelancer.). 

 

ENABLE Api FOR the TIMETRACKER USER ACCOUNT

In the Advantage employee file, set the TimeTracker user account as an API user.

  1. Log into your Advantage account. 
  2. Select "Maintenance" --> "Accounting" --> "Employee"
  3. Search for the user under "## Employee(s)"
  4. Select "Alerts & Settings"
  5. Check the box "[x] Is API User" to enable
