Elorus Chrome Extension

Article summary

The Elorus Chrome Extension is essentially a button that lets you track time wherever you are on the web, without having to keep an Elorus tab open in your browser all the time.

The extension offers convenience, as it saves your time entries directly in your Elorus account. It can also remind you to track your time within a designated time-window, so not even a second is left untracked!

Apart from that, our extensions integrate with these cloud applications:

These integrations allow you to track time straight from those applications, thus saving you time and increasing your team's efficiency!

How to install?

  1. Go to the Elorus extension in the Chrome Webstore here.

  2. Click “Add to Chrome”.

  3. Click "Add extension". Once you’ve installed the extension, a small Elorus logo will appear in the top right corner of your Chrome browser.

  4. Click the Elorus icon and log in with your Elorus account.


About the icon

  • When the button is plain grey it means you are not currently tracking time.

  • When the button is green it means there is a time entry currently running.

Start tracking time

Click on the Elorus button to reveal the timer's drop-down menu. Here you can see the currently running entry, stop the timer, open settings, or log out.

  • Select a project: begin typing the project name so it appears on the top of the list.

  • Select a task: you may search in the list, by typing the initial letter of the task.

  • Type in a brief description in the "What are you working on?" field.

Note: The timer will start as soon as you choose a project/task or by clicking the Play button.


Extension Settings

Use the "gear" icon to change General settings and set a time tracking reminder. The reminder will pop-up on your screen every hour within the designated time-frame.


Inside the Integrations tab you can select which web apps you want the Elorus time tracking to integrate with and how each one should treat tasks.
