Import your Tyme log in Google Calendar

August 23, 2017 · 1 min read

“If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it” said Peter Drucker. And if you can’t measure it, you don’t know how much to bill to your clients. 😉

That’s why I use Tyme, a Mac application to track my work.

But I wanted to have my time spent on my tasks and projects in Google Calendar, to visualize all my work time (included meetings) in the same place. And using Google Calendar, my time logs are synchronized and won’t be lost.

So, I made a simple Bash script to convert a csv file from Tyme to a csv file for Google Calendar.


  1. First, you have to export your time tracked in Tyme in csv format.

  2. Then, you just launch the tyme-to-calendar script passing your exported csv file as an argument.

     $ sudo tyme-googlecalendar [tyme_exported_csv_filename]
  3. When it’s done, you just have to import the new csv file created on Google Calendar.

And that’s all ☺️

You can find more information about this script on Github.

I hope this script will be useful for other Tyme and Google Calendar users too 😉
