1. Create or log into your Toggl account
First things first. Make sure you have a fully functional Toggl account - doesn’t matter if it’s a free, Starter or Enterprise plan account, the extension works with all of them. If you are creating a new account from scratch you might want to set up a few projects first so you could allocate your time logs from Google Calendar to these.
NB: It’s important that you are logged into Toggl’s web version when you want to use the extension. The Toggl tab can be closed after logging in.
3. Open your calendar and start tracking
Now head over to your Google Calendar and click on the event that’s coming up. You’ll see a timer button there (if you have followed previous steps and the extension is up-to-date). Click on it to start the automatic timer inside Toggl. All the data gets synced in real time and you can stop the time entry by starting another one, by clicking on the Toggl icon on the browser header or by going into Toggl and stopping it.
4. Analyse your timesheets inside Toggl
Whenever you want to get an overview of time spent, just open your Toggl account and check out the reports section. There are multiple ways to handle your time logs data: you can see reports along with colorful graphs, get a public bookmark link to share them, export as PDFs or even as Excel timesheets.
