Birthday Reminder Emails 🍰

Cake is the main only reason to celebrate a birthday at work.

Now, if your users have a birthday coming up we’ll send a quick reminder by email three days before the big day.

So you can buy a Colin the Caterpillar cake and furtively run around getting a card signed 🤣

You can turn the emails on or off in Preferences.

Webhooks in the API

This one has been requested on and off since we launched the API so we’re happy to unleash it.

Webhooks are here 🎣. Now you can receive HTTP calls when leave events happen in Timetastic with the details. In near real time. Directly to your servers.

Developers if you’re polling us for updates, this one’s for you 😊

All the juicy detail is in the API docs: https://timetastic.co.uk/api/#webhooks

Billing upgrade

We’ve completely overhauled our entire billing system, moving everything to Stripe Subscriptions. Hopefully nobody noticed.

New features:

  • You can now enter your billing address and we’ll put it on your invoices. Head to Settings > Billing and add it there.
  • You can now set a different company name on the bills to your Wallchart.

We improved Vat number validation too.

New Public Holiday Countries

We now support over 250 countries and over 3000 different geographical regions for Public Holidays.

Your existing custom locations remain if you had any. Both newly selected and existing regions will be updated and maintained automatically.

Oh and we updated the flags too.

Select a Public Holiday region from the Allowances tab in a user’s profile and we’ll take care of the rest.

Exclude Leave Types from "Max Off"

Happy Friday!

We’ve just released a nice small feature, that a few of you have asked for previously.

You can now specify whether or not your leave types should apply to the “Max Off” rules for your department. So, for example, you might want to exclude “sickness” from being included, since people can’t help being off ill.

Hope you enjoy it!

Email Absence Summaries

Despite it being a fairly bleak February the team have been massively motivated with their heads buried in building you an important new feature, one that we know will be well loved, and trigger a hefty increase in our monthly email bill!

Introducing….. Email Absence Summaries:

You can switch these on/off and set your preferred delivery time in “My Preferences” - click your profile image at the top right in Timetastic.

This is what your weekly summary looks like:

Public Holidays now in Calendar Summary

This was a feature requested by a customer, such a nice simple addition that should help you to see public holidays for a user.

In the Calendar summary you’ll now see the amount of Public Holidays for that year assigned to a user. If they’ve got Public Holidays turned off, or no public holidays for that year you won’t see anything.
