Configuring Dftly Time Tracker

Congratulations on installing dftly Time Tracker. Just a few steps to configure Time Tracker for your specific Salesforce org and your users will be up and running with the dftly Time Tracker on their mobile handsets.

Here are the steps that you need to do to setup dftly Time Tracker:

1.      Authorize dftly Time Tracker to access your Salesforce org

2.      Set up the dftly Time Tracker tabs on your org

3.      Check out the 8-digit App Key for your org

4.      Set up Projects, Tasks and Work Types that are specific for your org

5.      Add / Import the list of the users who will use the dftly Time Tracker app.

6.      Send an email with the API Key and Employee ID to each of your users. Tell them where to find the dftly Time Tracker mobile app on the Google Play Store or the Android Store. Alternatively, you can email them the dftly Time Tracker apk or IPA that you have received to your users.

Authorize Dftly to Access your org.

When your users need to sync their Time Sheet data to your Salesforce org, they need a secure mechanism to access your org, via dftly Time Tracker. To support that, you need to let Salesforce know that dftly Time Tracker can be allowed to access your org. You only need to do this once, when you install dftly Time Tracker. Salesforce (and dftly Time Tracker) remember your authorization for a year (you can always revoke the authorization from within Salesforce).

Important Notes.

�        Please note that dftly by default takes the oAuth details of the user that clicks on dftly in the drop down menu (on the right hand side of your menu as described here).

�        All data that is created from the handset app will all carry this User-ID as the Created by user.

�        So if you want let’s say your Human Resource Manager’s User-ID to be the Created by user for all handset related data, then you should get him/her to authorize dftly within your org.

�        In general though, we suggest that you authorize dftly from your Salesforce Administrator ID. This is because there are chances that you may delete let’s say the Human Resource Manager’s ID, if that person is no longer in your org.

�               When dftly is installed for you, you will see it listed in the right-hand-top drop-down menu in Salesforce. Click on the drop down menu (on the right hand side of your screen).

�               Choose dftly Time Tracker oAuth from the drop down. You will see a pop-up page that tells you about dftly Time Tracker wanting to access your Salesforce org. Click on the Allow button to let dftly access oAuth details from your org.

�               You will get an email from Salesforce asking you to authorize dftly Time Tracker again, at the end of the year.

Setup the dftly time tracker tabs

You now need to set up the dftly Time Tracker tabs for your org.

�        From the All Tabs page, click on the Customize My Tabs button on the right hand side
