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. 


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.

🚀 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:


IE support ended today

Today we've dropped support for Internet Explorer. If you're using IE with Timetastic. Now is the time to use Firefox, Brave, Safari, Chrome or Edge instead.


This change will allow us to deliver better features faster and more reliably while shrinking the amount of code we have to send down to everyone. The case for IE has been made by people better than I can explain here, so I'll defer to those posts for more detail:

The Fire Wire!

For our Pro users, the Burnout Board is shining a light on those people who aren't taking time off and might be overworking. But leaving it down to ad-hoc logging in and checking is pretty weak.

So, The Fire Wire is your quarterly update from the Burnout Board.

It's sent to both admin users and department bosses (for their department).

If nobody's on your burnout board that's great news, we won't send anything.

The email looks like this: 



📣 Upcoming change: Internet Explorer Support

Hi Everyone,

This only applies to roughly 3% of our sessions but we're giving you as much notice as we can. 

Internet Explorer support in Timetastic is coming to an end in February 2021.

This specifically applies to IE11 as that's the only version we currently support. If you're using IE11 with Timetastic this will affect you.

If you're using any version of IE you'll see a banner in Timetastic warning you about this support ending. From February 2021 (or in fact, today) we'd strongly advise using a modern browser.
