New Mobile Apps

Today we're announcing the release of the long overdue updates to iPhone and Android apps.

To be completely level with you, the previous apps were way short on functionality and had numerous bugs, they were out of sync with the web app in their design and usability.

Our only course of action was to start from scratch and build a completely new mobile experience, one that's in line with the web app, one you'll feel instantly at home with.

So after many months of design, code, releasing, then design again, code again, bug fix, test, design, code, test (you get the picture) - we are finally there.

We've no doubt that despite all our testing and tweaking there will be some niggles that arise in the first few weeks, if you spot anything please do let us know.

And otherwise we'd live to hear your feedback :)

Here's the links to Download:

We've started to keep a full changelog twitter.

You can access it with a simple search for "Timetastic #changelog".

That's all for now :)

Timetastic Update : 14th September

This months update brings some eagerly awaited functions, a big step forward for us.

1. Carry Forwards

This has been the most requested function over recent months, so it's great to be telling you about the new function to carry forward any unused leave to the next year - subject to your company policy obviously.

Admin users can configure annual carry forward by heading to:

Settings > General Settings

You can see from below, we've made it super easy for admin users to understand and configure. You just set the maximum number of days/ hours that can be carried forward into the next year in line with your company policy.

The rest is automatic, when your year end arrives the carry forward will happen and a summary sent to your admin users by email.

2. Photo Uploading

Since launch we've relied on Gravatar to pull through profile images. Although we'll continue to do so where a photo is present on Gravatar, we now also offer the ability to upload a photo directly.

You can access the photo uploader from My Details and clicking 'change photo' (apologies for my mugshot here).

3. Reformatted 'My Details' page

Some of you will also notice the new format for 'My Details' and 'User Edit' pages. The new tabbed format gives better structure to the data and in part a step toward improving the mobile experience.

So this update is yet another big step forward, if you have any questions or have any issues then let us know.


Timetastic Update 17th August

We've made few updates over the last few days that contain some real improvements for all of our customers, here's a quick summary:

Add a reason when declining leave:

One of the most requested features. When you decline leave you can now add a reason, and that reason will be communicated to the employee in the email they receive. We hope this makes Timetastic a little more helpful for the day to day management of annual leave.

Days in Lieu - individual transactions with reasons:

Another popular request. When you add Days in Lieu you can now add a short note and see the date it was added. This should make tracking Days in Lieu much easier.

Department Boss Filter on Wall Chart:

A smallish tweak that gives you an easy way to view and compare the leave for your Department Bosses, particularly useful for organisations who need to ensure they have a given number bosses in on any given day.

I also thought it worth taking the time to remind you of the last update which expanded the Public Holidays function to include setting them by department and the option to import holidays for 16 new countries. Full details of that update are available here.

As always if you have any questions then do email.
