New! Booking form attachments

Today we launch something that we've been working on for a little while...booking attachments! 🎉 For example, if you're booking time off as a sick day, you can now attach a photo of your doctor's note.

This isn't limited to sick days - if you want to gloat about the weather forecast for your upcoming beach holiday, you could attach a screenshot of the local weather report  😎 

For this first release it's just a desktop function, but fear not, the mobile app will have the feature in the coming days.


January Improvements

Happy New Year! 🎉 Today we've kicked off 2022 in style with a number of small updates and improvements:

User management 👥

We’ve updated the user list to make it more obvious which users are being archived or deleted. We’ve also improved the archive and delete screens to be clearer about what impact archiving or deleting has on your users.

Email summary of absences 📩

We've changed the order that absences appear in your weekly summary emails, for those of you whose emails are truncated by hitting the maximum number of absences that can be displayed.  Previously they were ordered by start time descending, so  the latest dates appeared first. We've changed this to prioritise the absences coming up soonest, to make sure you don't miss any important information about your team's whereabouts. 😎

Public Holiday icons 🌹

We've improved icon prioritisation to make sure it's clear when a booking falls on a public holiday. Previously, the public holiday icon disappeared when a booking was pending on that day:

The bank holidays on the 27-28th do not have the icon when covered by a pending booking.

Now, the bank holiday icon always shows, even if there's a booking on it:



New! Set your Business hours

You can now set your business hours in Timetastic.

And when you add new users they'll get those hours by default when they're created. 👍

It's all done in Settings > General: 


Modal closing annoyance fixed

Sometimes it's the little things...

If you ever clicked and dragged your mouse outside of one of our modal popups and released the button you'd have noticed it close without warning.  You'd lose all your changes to the user or HR fields you were working on and have to start again.

🙄 🤦

We fixed it - you can drag outside of a modal and not be punished now 😁

 


Welcome screen & fixes for October

New:

New companies signing up to Timetastic now get a nice welcome screen going through some of the basics and guiding you to setup help if needed.

Improved:

We fixed editing your allowance from the preferences page.



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 🤞
