August web updates

We've had a number of small updates go out recently, none merited their own update but here's what's recently changed:

- We've got new menu designs! 🖌️

- Slack posts have been updated to use Slack's new layout technology which should mean better message formatting - especially for those on mobile. ✨

- We fixed an issue where you could create an "empty" leave type which caused other issues down the line. 🐛

- Thanks to a report from the security community we've updated our rate limits and put more protections in place for people overwhelming our email services. Thanks to @Jayalak54621465 for getting in touch. 👍

Update to Terms of Service

We've updated our Terms of Service to align with current GDPR requirements.

Prior to this we included a number of clauses in the Terms of Service required by GDPR, but that mechanism no longer cuts it. So we've moved all those terms into their own Data Processing Agreement, which is the proper way of doing things now.

 If you have any questions then just reach out to our support team.

Cookie update

Improvements for both GDPR compliance and privacy today 🔐 🕵️‍♀️

We've been deleting a heap of unwanted cookies from Timetastic and producing better documentation of what you will find on our website and app.

It's all on our updated Cookie Policy

Privacy Policy update

We've just published an update to our Privacy Policy to keep in line with GDPR requirements.

The main changes are:

1. Outlining our legal basis for collecting and processing data.

2. More detail on what data we collect, why, and how we collect it.

3. Clarify on how long we retain personal data for.

4. Clarification of your rights under GDPR.

5. Inclusion of our EU data representative - a requirement since Brexit.

Hopefully it all makes sense and you find the information nice and clear.

Thanks, and have a nice weekend :)

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:



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.



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.
