FAQ

Error 401 - Your API token or URL is set incorrectly...most likely your API token
Connection Timeout. Make sure you have good reception or have internet access. If your not connected to the internet, it may timeout the first time, just retry.
Known Issues:

Only works with one user, the administrator. Other users/employees cannot submit time. This is a limitation of the Freshbooks API.
Only supports time entries for Projects/Tasks, no invoice support in the short term.
Random errors when getting project info or submitting time. You should be able to just retry by clicking the button again.
Tasks cannot be filtered based on project selected due to the current API of Freshbooks...or a heavy performance loss.
