This is a small but powerful change! We are unable to imagine the menu before. Profitability
This was a large chunk of a project. We wanted to ensure you had a clear view of the profitability of your projects. Many elements needed to be assembled before you could achieve this. Number one, the hourly rate. They are not the same as Job types rates and you can read more about them here. They are clearly visible in Project info bubble. How can these rates be converted into costs? Our Integrated Stopwatch shines in this area. Track your time and multiply it by the rates to get an accurate invoice. Reports and timesheets
We’ve organized the team and personal organization by tidying up Time reports and creating the Personal and Team Timesheet. Here all your time records are neatly sorted and organized. The Personal Timesheet is located in My Work. It contains tasks you have been assigned and the hours and minutes spent on them. The Team Timesheet is located in the sidebar. It will show the total time records of everyone. They will prove to be very useful for managers and team leaders. All January updates. Reaction to the pandemic
February flew by and March brought us all global events. We extended the trial period by 90 days to assist the teams in adapting to work remotely. Check out what we did in February and March.
We completed another major project in April: different budgeting types. You can now choose from three options: Fixed price. For projects that have a predetermined budget. Keep your costs within a budget
Time and expenses. Track your time, expenses, and invoicing as you go
Non-billable. Ideal for internal projects
We also made it possible for task lists to be duplicated!
A redesigned Column view was added to the first half of the year! The main enhancements include real-time events, and a “Done” column that contains all your completed tasks. Drag and drop tasks to this column to complete or reopen them. It is now possible to track time on projects rather than just tasks. You can also try our Get Paid bundle for free for 30 days. But that’s not all! Check out our May and June updates. Budget alerts
After creating the Fixed price budgeting type, it became clear that it would be useful to know when your budget limit is approaching. We created Budget alerts that can be triggered when certain percentages of your budget are reached. You can create as many as you wish. A notification will appear reminding you to keep your budget within limits. July also brought us an updated Date picker! My Work
We had to wait a while and took many detours before we finally completed My Work. We are very pleased with the results. The most requested feature was finally added: the ability to group tasks by due date. Other improvements include collapsible task groupings, a tab to record availability records, and the brand-new Add button. Storage Add-on
