Questions

Which data do you collect and store?

The only thing that we store is your Harvest/Forecast/Slack tokens, which are solely used at run time to perform the features of this tool. Our website only uses Forecast or Harvest APIs at the time of sending Slack reminders, stand-up reminders, or when running an invoicing process.

Some of the data retrieved from Harvest APIs is temporarily cached in redis, in order to make the app less APIs-dependant, but it is a short-lived cache that is cleared upon logout.

There is no usage tracker on this website.

What is your commitment for privacy?

Your privacy is important to us. Shortly said, we do only store the strictly required information to deliver our service. We do not and will never share any of your information to others, except required to by law. There is no usage tracker on this website.

You can read our detailed Privacy Policy for detailed explanations.

Which libraries do you use to talk with Harvest, Forecast and Slack?

We use three PHP libraries: forecast-php-api, harvest-php-api and slack-php-api. All three are based on OpenAPI specifications and generated using an open-source software crafted by JoliCode, Jane.

While Forecast does not have a public API, the Harvest client must be, at the time of writing, one of the most complete, exhaustive and up-to-date API client for Harvest.

Can I run this software on my own server?

Yes, it is free software. Go ahead and use it: Forecast tools on Github.

How reliable is this software?

We have built these tools for our own use and we use it on a daily basis, which means that we do our best for these tools to work. However, we do not provide professional support for these tools. See our Terms of Service for detailed explanations.
