Guide: Using Teamwork with Databox


How to connect Teamwork to Databox


How to connect Teamwork to Databox

To connect a Teamwork Account in Databox, go to  Data Manager > + New connection. Type Teamwork in the search bar and click on the green Connect button. 

This will open the  Activation window, which is where you will be prompted to enter your Teamwork login credentials and authorize the Databox app. 

How much historical data is synced when you first connect Teamwork to Databox?

When you connect a new Teamwork Data Source in Databox, 12 months worth of historical data is initially synced. 

Certain Metrics may have more or less historical data available. For more information about the amount of historical data available for a specific Metric, please contact our Support Team at help@databox.com.

Pro Tip: Once your Teamwork Data Source is connected and actively syncing data, we store the data that's collected in our own database. This allows us to accumulate more data over time as more data syncs are made so that you can report on more historical Teamwork data in your Databox reports. Learn more here

What time zone does Teamwork data sync in? 

Teamwork data is synced in UTC.
