Harvest connection guide

Use this guide to connect Harvest to Supermetrics and start seamlessly pulling your time-tracking data into your reporting.

If you need to connect this data source to one of our data warehouse or cloud storage destinations, explore our data warehouse and cloud storage setup guides.

Before you begin

The Harvest API mirrors your account permissions. For this reason, you'll need access to an Administrator account to access your data. Learn more in Harvest's documentation.

Query types

Each Harvest query type pulls time and billing data by the dimension in its name (for example, the Projects report pulls data by client or project).

Note that Project, Client, Task, and Team reports allow only reporting with monthly granularity.

  • Projects report
  • Clients report
  • Tasks report
  • Team report
  • Time entries (not available in Looker Studio)

Harvest's API allows a maximum of 100 requests every 15 minutes. If you find any of your Harvest queries timing out, wait 15 minutes and try again.
