The modern workplace has changed dramatically in the last twenty years. In the past, when an employee was hired, they were given a desk and computer, and rarely left that desk except to go to the restroom. They would work for eight hours a day, five days a week, and spend their free time with their family or friends outside of work. Today, however, many employees are working from home or coffee shops, they use mobile devices for their job, and they work whenever they have time. The most common work model is called “Agile” which is an iterative process where project teams complete milestones by breaking them into smaller chunks of work. These smaller chunks of work are known as sprints and then there are two-week cycles called “sprint cycles.” The sprint cycle is divided into three phases. planning, execution, and retrospective. The planning phase is spent defining what needs to be done, the execution phase is spent doing the tasks, and during the retrospective phase, the team reviews what went well and what can be improved during the next two week cycle. At the end of each cycle, the team presents an update on the progress of the project to their supervisors. This allows people to feel more productive because they are usually working on something at all times even if it is only for a few minutes. The other benefit of agile is that it helps ensure that the teams are constantly improving. Agile also allows companies to respond quickly to changes in the marketplace and adapt to a changing economy.
Traditionally, Harvest is a time tracking program that allows employees to track how many hours they worked on a specific task or projects. It also helps employers keep track of how much work employees are doing so they don’t overwork or under-work them. It also allows managers to see what their employees are working on and how long it takes them to complete their workload. Basecamp 2 is a project management software that allows teams to cplaboratively manage their tasks and schedules. It helps team members be more productive by making sure all team members are on the same page. The integration of the two programs lets managers see exactly how much time employees spend on specific tasks in the software. The integration also makes it easy for team members to access both time tracking and project management software without having to switch back and forth between programs.
The third version of Basecamp was launched in June 2014 and one of its features was integration with Harvest so that employees could track their time in Harvest directly from Basecamp. When Basecamp 3 was released in September 2015, Harvest integration was not included but rather it was something that you had to pay extra for. Right now, the current version of Basecamp does not have integration with Harvest but the developers are working on it right now. One of the main reasons why Basecamp integrated with Harvest was because Harvest was already integrated with Basecamp 2 so it made sense for them to make it easier for users to track their time from both programs. One of the benefits of integrating Harvest and Basecamp is that it makes time tracking easier for teams because they don’t have to switch between programs anymore. Rather than switching back and forth between programs, people can just log into Basecamp 2 and make note of their activities in Harvest at the same time. This saves everyone time because they no longer need to switch between programs and can just use one program to track their time at work. Another benefit is that it makes it easy for managers who might want to keep track of how much time their employees spend working on specific tasks because they can just check out what they are working on in Basecamp 2 and it will automatically show up in Harvest as well. When an employee finishes a task, they can mark it as done in Harvest and it will automatically mark it as completed in Basecamp 2 as well.
When Harvest first integrated with Basecamp 2 over two years ago, they decided to charge extra for it even though there was a free version of Harvest available for anyone who wanted to use it (there still is. . This made sense because harvesting your time worked best if you were working on Basecamp 2 but when Basecamp 3 came about, Harvest decided to make it so you could harvest your time from any program you want regardless if you use Basecamp 2 or not. When Harvest decided to charge extra for the integration feature, I thought it was a little unfair because now people who wanted Harvest integration would have to pay extra for something they didn’t need anymore. For example, if someone worked on Basecamp 2 but they didn’t want to pay extra for Harvest integration just so they could log their time from Basecamp 2 then they would have either had to pay extra for a feature they didn’t need or get rid of the integration feature altogether which would mean losing out on productivity because you can’t track your time from both programs anymore unless you upgrade your plan or buy a new account altogether. While this might seem like a petty complaint, I think this move by Harvest will only hurt them in the end because they will lose some customers because others will decide not use Harvest because they don’t want to pay extra for something that was free before or choose another time tracking program altogether which means they won’t be able to track their time from both programs anymore unless they upgrade their accounts. In my opinion, this change in strategy by Harvest means that people will have fewer choices in regards to which time tracking software they use and put them at a disadvantage because most of us don’t have hundreds of dplars lying around so we can afford to pay more than we used too. As a result, I think that Harvest should make it so you can harvest your time from any program you want regardless if you use Basecamp 2 or not because they should prioritize customer loyalty over money as long as their customers are happy and willing to pay for their product or service anyway.
The second reason why I think that Harvest should integrate with any program you want rather than just base camp two is because I think it’s ridiculous that you can’t harvest your time from different programs at once. For example, if you wanted to harvest your time from both Basecamp 2 and Slack at the same time then you would have to pay twice as much just so you can do that. This seems counter intuitive because all Harvest is doing is harvesting your time using a timer that runs in the background while you work and all software including Slack has timers built into their programs so why should you have to pay twice as much just so you can harvest your time from different programs? I know some people might say that you shouldn’t really be checking your email or slack while you are supposed to be working but I disagree because in today’s workplace there are no such things as “work hours” anymore so most people multitask regardless if they are supposed to be working or not but I understand why some people might want to be able to harvest their time from different programs at once so they can see how much time they spend on different projects at once and how much work they did last week or last month depending on which timeframe you decide to set up your harvesting times for. For example, say you worked on a project related to sports marketing last week and today you were assigned a new project related to sports marketing but you want to know how much work you did last month as well as last week so that way you can see how productive you were overall during those two weeks so that way you can improve yourself during the next two week cycle when you do this again. Another reason why I think Harvest should let people harvest their times from different programs at once is because sometimes people like me forget when I am supposed to start harvesting my time from certain programs so if I harvested my time from Slack yesterday but forgot today then I would still be able to harvest my time from Slack today without paying extra for something I already paid for before but didn’t use yet simply because I forgot I had already paid for a feature I didn’t need yet but might need later down the road when I actually need it again.
Another benefit of integrating Harvest with different programs besides Basecamp 2 is because doing this will allow people who otherwise couldn’t afford an expensive subscription plan with Harvest still have access to the feature either by upgrading their account or paying extra for an upgrade plan which means more money in Harvest pockets which isn’t necessarily bad considering this feature will help them keep more customers as well as retain existing ones who might otherwise not be able to afford Harvest without this feature being available through premium plan upgrades and custom plans entirely separate from the regular subscription plans but either way it will still increase revenue for Harvest overall even though some might argue that revenue might be slightly lower due to more people buying less expensive plans (I disagree
