Update: Project Management & Team Scheduling Join Forces in Our New Teamwork Projects Integration


October 25th update: Since our original Teamwork Projects integration launched in September, we've been listening carefully to what our customers have had to say. For most, it's been overwhelmingly positive and helped kickstart their Teamwork Projects resource scheduling in Float. However, it became clear that for some users, specifically those with large volumes of Teamwork subtasks, the changes made to subtask structure were unexpected at best (and, in some cases, destructive to their workflow). For that, we're very sorry. One of our primary goals is to save team's time, and for those teams, in particular, we failed in that respect.

Today's integration now ensures there are no changes made to your Teamwork account on connection with Float. The integration also now presents more ways to connect, with both 1-way and 2-way sync options. We hope you like it! Once again, we'd love your feedback. Please send us a note to support@float.com.

If you've been using Teamwork Projects for your project management needs and Float for your team scheduling needs, the days of running numbers in your head and shuffling back and forth between browser tabs are officially over.

With our new integration, you can quickly sync your data between the two platforms, and add your projects from Teamwork directly into Float for easy scheduling.

From the Team Settings page, the Account Owner can select the Integrations tab and click Connect Account.

Choose to enable a 1-way sync or 2-way sync and then click Save.

1-way sync

This option will import your people, projects, tasks, and milestones from Teamwork Projects into Float.

Any changes made in Teamwork Projects will be reflected in Float, but not vice versa.

2-way sync

This option will import your people from Teamwork Projects into Float. Any projects created in Float will be synced back to your Teamwork account.

Scheduling a task in Float will create a corresponding subtask in Teamwork Projects.

When you change a task's dates or reassign it to someone else in Float, those changes are immediately reflected in Teamwork Projects.

Task hours you've scheduled in Float sync back as estimated time in Teamwork Projects, and marking a task complete in Float does the same in Teamwork—signaling that the work is done.

This new integration lets your harness the superpowers of both Float and Teamwork Projects—allowing you to optimize your projects and resources in real time, and schedule your team's time more accurately than ever before.
