In collaboration with Adapt Analytics, experts in data, we have created Power BI templates for TimeChimp. We have a template with three dashboards: one for management, one for projects, and one for employees. With these dashboards, you have immediate insights into KPIs, such as absenteeism, top 5 projects, and hourly rates. Everything is neatly organized in one place, allowing you to make data-driven decisions.
Follow the steps below to activate the template.
Download Power BI
To use the Power BI integration, you need your own Power BI account, make sure to download and open the program.
Retrieve API Key
Go to 'App Center' > 'API' and click on 'Generate.' A new pop-up window will appear where you need to enter your TimeChimp password; then click on 'Retrieve Token.'
You will now see your API key. Copy the text from the word "Bearer" to the end of the line. This API key is the key to your data in TimeChimp and is needed to retrieve your data.
Download the TimeChimp PowerBI Template
Now you can download the Power BI template dashboard. To do this, go to the settings of TimeChimp by clicking on the gear icon. Then, go to 'App Center' > 'Integrations' and look for the 'Power BI' tile. Here you will find the template.
Open the Template
When you open the template, Power BI will ask you to enter the API key. Paste the API token you created in step 2. Then press 'Load.'
Retrieve Data Power BI will then start loading all data from your TimeChimp environment; this may take some time depending on the amount of data in TimeChimp.
It is possible that a pop-up like the one below appears. Refer to the settings in the image. Make sure to choose 'Anonymous' and that the URL is 'http://data.timechimp.com.'
After retrieving all data from TimeChimp, you will see a beautiful dashboard with all the data from your TimeChimp environment. If you see no or little data, check the period for which data is being retrieved and adjust it if necessary using the sliders.
