Better Preferences Menu

"My preferences" and "Sign in & security" have joined forces under our new, much clearer Preferences menu:

Now you can change your email notification settings, password, set up 2FA or see your sign ins all from the same place. Much clearer, much easier to scan through and hopefully you'll agree, much easier to use.


Other updates:

- We've also cleaned up an edge case permissions issue where some updates on users wouldn't save properly

- We've opted out of Google's controversial FLoC experiment on our website (see: https://plausible.io/blog/google-floc#what-is-federated-learning-of-cohorts-floc). 


Sign in tweaks

2FA

This one is mostly a result of internal feedback, but if we found it a little annoying at times then perhaps you did too...

We now remember your device/browser after a two-factor authenticated sign in for 30 days, instead of prompting you for the code each and every time you sign in.

Additionally, when inputting your code on a mobile device you should now be offered the numeric keyboard, which will hopefully ease your journey into Timetastic.

First sign in

We've improved the way we record your first sign in to Timetastic as a new user. In rare circumstances we were seeing that users weren't being reported as active, so weren't receiving emails.

Entering login codes on mobile improved

Some improvements to the behaviour of the Login Code screen today:

iOS users can now see the code they've entered, auto tabbing between the fields is fixed and we load the numeric keyboard rather than the full one.

Protip: You can just paste the code straight in to any of the boxes and we'll sort it all out and log you in 👍


New "My Preferences" page

New style Preferences page for you today. Nothing has changed in functionality, but it's more legible and accessible now. Especially on smaller screens.

In the invisible engine compartment of Timetastic we've tidied up some logging.


A couple of fixes

Two things you won't notice, but they all add up 🙂

- Fixed an issue where the book button would be visible if you had a payment screen open on the mobile site.

- Fixed a potential abuse scenario from the Forgot Password page. Hat tip to Kapil for reaching out to us with this one 👍 

Legal updates

Some more updates to our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

Part of the ongoing process to make them clearer and easier to understand.

Main points to note:

Terms of service

We are switching to more conversational language, removing the stuffiness.

A full rewrite of the Cancellation and Termination section. To get rid of large swathes of unnecessary legalese and clarify that you can cancel anytime, instantly. And that all your data will be deleted from all backups within 14 days.

Privacy policy - 3rd party apps.

We're stepping up privacy and Google Analytics is the first casualty👏. We removed all Google Analytics tracking from the website and app. We won't be feeding their big data machine any longer. 

And with that we've removed Google Inc as a 3rd party data processor.


Thanks, and have a nice weekend :)

Better approval confirmations

Small update when you approve or decline requests 🚦. Now you'll always end up on the Requests page with a confirmation, rather than being bounced straight to the Wallchart 👍.

There's some backend updates and improvements too in this update.

Privacy Update and a bugfix

Fix 

First up we fixed an issue where Slack posts would fail if the public holiday country had multiple public holidays on the same day. 

Improvement 

Second up, big privacy improvement to Timetastic: Following our removal of email trackers a while ago, we've removed Google Analytics from the website, app, blog, help centre and this changelog.

We've moved to a privacy focused analytics app called Plausible.
