Tracking GitLab Time in actiTIME

GitLab is a DevOps platform for collaborative software development. It is a web-based Git repository with an unlimited number of open and private repositories, issue-following capabilities, and wikis. It allows developers to follow the software development life cycle from project planning to monitoring and security. GitLab also provides a bug tracking system where you can create tasks, leave comments and close them. All this functionality is available from the web interface with a few limitations.

Starting at version 8.14, GitLab provides limited time tracking capabilities that allow you to define estimates and record time against issues and merge requests. But if you need a more solid time management solution integrated with GitLab and working outside the GitLab environment, actiTIME might be a good fit. Let’s see how you can benefit from actiTIME integration with GitLab.

To select a task to track time against, you may enjoy a smart suggestion feature that gives you a list of previously created tasks to save your captured time to. You can also pick a task from recent tasks, enter a task name manually or create a new task right from the extension interface.
