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

Attachments on mobile app

We launched booking attachments a week or so ago on the web app, so you can include attachments when you book some leave - for example if you're booking time off as a sick day, you can include a photo of a doctor's note. 🤢

Well... We now have that same functionality in the mobile app! 🎉

When you book some time off - and tap to add a reason - you'll notice some new options here - that allow you to either attach an existing image, or take a photo:

You can also view attachments from the mobile app by bringing up a holiday.

Make sure you update your mobile app to version 5.5 to see this

Enjoy!

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.



Fix: Summary email grouping

We fixed an issue where in some situations your users wouldn't be grouped into their departments correctly in summary emails.

We also fixed a rare display issue on the billing 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 🤞


June fixes and improvements

We've wrapped up some improvements and fixes throughout Timetastic.

  • In some cases you couldn't remove an email address from a user if they'd been a department boss/approver. Now you can. 👍 
  • Custom public holiday locations with no users assigned are no longer displayed in the public holidays settings 🧹
  • If you had a locked date and a booking on the same day you couldn't cancel the holiday without unlocking the date first. Now you can. ✅
  • In some cases, the wallchart would become unresponsive when clicking a booking with a locked date - that's fixed too. 🛠
  • On mobile, clicking "book time off" on a locked date wouldn't load the book form - now it does.
