Fix: Summary email grouping

We fixed an issue where in some situations your users wouldn't be grouped into their departments correctly in summary emails.

We also fixed a rare display issue on the billing page.

Upgrade to Pro within Timetastic

In Settings >Billing you've now got a "Plan Selector" to pick your plan: 


Want to try out Pro and see what it's all about? Go ahead - no pro rated bills, no faff, just upgrade and we'll bill you the new price when you next get billed. Simple 👍

Downgrade before your bill date and you won't be charged (but all your Pro features will be disabled and downgraded 👋). 

So if it's Teams, SSO, HR Fields, The Burnout Board or just email digests to the whole company you want, now you can get them with a click or two. 


July Improvements

Few small things we've rounded up.

1) A fix to the department filter on the book form and we fixed that pesky off by 2 pixel date picker too. 🔧

2) Weekly summary emails are more compact and we've improved the layout for who is off on a particular day

3) Technical bits incoming! 🤓 We've turned HTTP3 on to make things even faster for those of you that can support it (Chrome, Edge, Firefox & Samsung Internet). From our initial trials we're seeing over 25% of our traffic using it and image heavy page loads (Wallchart & Users page) are seeing improvements already. 🏎



June fixes & Improvements II

Most of this update is to improve and prepare things for the new mobile app and get us ready for more people to jump into testing it.

Elsewhere in Timetastic:

  • Resetting your password no longer resets your API Key (Sorry to anyone this caught out!)
  • Privacy mode copy is clearer to what the toggles are doing
  • Improvements to Office365 Calendar syncs to reduce the chance of it disconnecting 🤞


June fixes and improvements

We've wrapped up some improvements and fixes throughout Timetastic.

  • In some cases you couldn't remove an email address from a user if they'd been a department boss/approver. Now you can. 👍 
  • Custom public holiday locations with no users assigned are no longer displayed in the public holidays settings 🧹
  • If you had a locked date and a booking on the same day you couldn't cancel the holiday without unlocking the date first. Now you can. ✅
  • In some cases, the wallchart would become unresponsive when clicking a booking with a locked date - that's fixed too. 🛠
  • On mobile, clicking "book time off" on a locked date wouldn't load the book form - now it does. 



Account recycling

Improvement:

We've automated our account recycling policy. There's little reason to hold onto personal data in old/dormant Timetastic accounts, both from a data protection point of view and the unnecessary use of server space and power.

Timetastic accounts that go inactive for over 18 months will be flagged for recycling and warnings sent by email.

Fix:

Fixed the display of what time your next burnout snapshot is due to be sent out

Google Workspace & Email Summary improvements 🛠

Hello 👋 

We've got a few fixes and updates going out today. Here's the details:

Email summaries

They now know about daylight savings, so when you set your time to 9am, it'll actually be delivered at 9am all of the time 🙌 not just when the timezones align!

In addition we've made the "who is absent" lookup timezone aware too, so you should get better results if you're offset from UTC by a fair bit...🦘

Google Workspace

Our sync engine has been robustified to handle Google's updates better. The end result is you should see more reliable user syncing and quicker updates in Timetastic. 

Other updates

When cancelling leave we weren't always notifying the person and their boss. That's fixed now, so we notify correctly in this situation.

The settings page had some nips and tucks to styling here and there

Settings gets a makeover

Today we're really happy to share something we've been working on for months. Our new and improved settings section.

In short it's cleaner, more accessible, easier to navigate and just makes more sense than the old "grid of doom" that forced you to navigate back and forward.

New additions

- Destructive actions like account cancellation and changing leave year are now handled in the Danger Zone (Top Gun soundtrack optional ✈️)

- Public holidays now show you the number of users assigned to a location and the number of days in this calendar year for that location

- The API docs have moved to Integrations

There's a huge number of improvements to text contrast, copy, colours, and accessibility and it's far too much to wrap up in this post. Click around, see how you get on 🙂


🚀 NEW MOBILE APP 🚀 - beta testers wanted!

Hi there,

We've got an entirely new Timetastic mobile app in the final stages of development and need some beta testers, some people keen to see the shiny new app and feedback any issues or problems.

This isn't some minor enhancement to the existing app, this is 100% new. New design, new screens, it's even got dark mode! 👏

It's open to any existing Timetastic user:

I'll share a few screenshots so you get a flavour of what to expect:
