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.

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.
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).
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.

in Salesforce. Click on the drop down menu (on the right hand side of your
