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: 


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.

Fix:

Fixed the display of what time your next burnout snapshot is due to be sent out

Settings gets a makeover

Today we're really happy to share something we've been working on for months. Our new and improved settings section.

In short it's cleaner, more accessible, easier to navigate and just makes more sense than the old "grid of doom" that forced you to navigate back and forward.

New additions

- Destructive actions like account cancellation and changing leave year are now handled in the Danger Zone (Top Gun soundtrack optional ✈️)

- Public holidays now show you the number of users assigned to a location and the number of days in this calendar year for that location

- The API docs have moved to Integrations

There's a huge number of improvements to text contrast, copy, colours, and accessibility and it's far too much to wrap up in this post. Click around, see how you get on 🙂


🚀 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:


Leave Type Icons

Ever look at the Wallchart and think? What is pink? Is that Annual leave or Sickness?

Well, wonder no more - you can now assign an icon for each different type of leave, and your calendar comes to life :)


You can choose which icons to use in SETTINGS > LEAVE TYPES:


They'll appear on your Calendar, on the Wallchart and on the summary in your calendar, like so...


Hope you like!

Better Preferences Menu

"My preferences" and "Sign in & security" have joined forces under our new, much clearer Preferences menu:

Now you can change your email notification settings, password, set up 2FA or see your sign ins all from the same place. Much clearer, much easier to scan through and hopefully you'll agree, much easier to use.


Other updates:

- We've also cleaned up an edge case permissions issue where some updates on users wouldn't save properly

- We've opted out of Google's controversial FLoC experiment on our website (see: https://plausible.io/blog/google-floc#what-is-federated-learning-of-cohorts-floc). 


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:
