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.

Another fix roundup

The team are hard at work on our next big thing, but in the meantime here's our latest fix update:

  • The "Email address in use" help link is now clickable when editing a user's profile.
  •  The date picker on the Audit report download is now nicer
  • Audit reports should download more reliably for longer time ranges


Slack bot fixes

We've sorted an issue where in some cases Slack DMs wouldn't work for leave requests. If you're not seeing them show up - remove and re-add your Slack integration and they will start working again.

Recent transactions, Login Codes and Burnout Board improvements

A raft of fixes, tweaks and refinements in this release. 

Improvement 

- Magic login links have been replaced with 6 digit login codes. Codes are just as secure but more reliable than placing links in the body of an email.

- The reports page now has a dropdown for selecting your annual summary reports

Pro 

We've tuned the Burnout Board algorithm to exclude anyone that's currently absent. So someone on long term leave e.g. maternity won't show as a burnout risk. 

Fix 

1) We fixed an issue with recent transactions where some history wouldn't show up for bookings created a long time ago but updated recently. 

2) Any integrations you had set up (Slack, Teams) would switch to "all departments" if you deleted the department they were set up against. Now we'll delete those integrations when the department gets deleted too.

3) We fixed an issue with birthday reminders where they wouldn't go out sometimes.

Small bug on the report download

Good morning.

Following the last release, it looks like some of you were struggling to download reports. This turned out to be a small issue in our cache-busting logic that meant that your browsers were still serving up old versions of some of the code that powers the app. 

This small issue has been dealt with now, and we're once again fully operational with reports. Phew. Sorry.


Fixed: Older invoices can't be downloaded

We identified some errors in the logs where older invoices couldn't be downloaded by some users. After some investigation we narrowed this down to a 3rd party updating their API without notice.

Sorry about that if you had issues, it's all sorted now and you can download old invoices again 😀


Summary emails now state your department

We've improved the summary emails to tell you more about the type of summary you're getting so you'll see the department name.

If you're a pro user you'll see whether the summary is for the whole organisation, or people you manage too.

We've also rounded up some fixes to the allowance setting of a new user and made sending weekly summary emails more reliable in some edge case scenarios.


Mobile App Fixes

Hello everyone!

It's a mobile update release. ☎️ 🤙

Looks like we've had some issues with the mobile app recently - specifically things like the login link, and resetting passwords haven't been behaving properly.

This release sorts all that. Best of all it's a server-side fix so no-one needs to go and update their app - hooray!
