Everhour 2 - blog cover ACL

Access Control in Everhour 2

In the following article I’d like to discuss another super important feature we’ve been thinking a lot and are implementing right now – Access Control.

In other words, what time a team member is allowed to see and what is not.

Our approach has obvious advantages but also nuances we are a little worried about. So, we decided to discuss it with you instead of just imposing our decision.

The article is focused on Asana, but other integration will work in similar fashion.

Everhour 2 - blog cover intervals

Intervals on Time Entries

While we are working on a new version of Everhour, we are doing our best to bear in mind all change requests and ideas we’ve been asked for. But sometimes a feature might be more complex than people think. And by first and foremost I mean usability point rather than some engineering problem.

One of such features stands as “Show time intervals next to the reported time”. This topic has been in high demand on our forum.

In the following article I’m going to provide you with some scenarios that (hopefully) explain the complexity we are referring to and how we’re going to address them in the new version.

Everhour v2 coming

Folks,

As always, before making any significant changes in Everhour we are sharing our thoughts with you, our super loyal customers, to make sure we are on the right track.

The huge changes are ahead.

A little background information

For the very first time we have introduced integrations in Everhour more than a year ago. At that time the idea was simple:  ”What if not just reporting the activities but making users able to refer to their existing tasks in third-party project management tools!” This is how synchronization was born.

Progress-Update - Estimates-All-New-Everhour-Coming

Progress Update (December)

While our team is working hard at some of the bigger features from the roadmap, we’ve also pushed out a couple smaller things aimed to make Everhour easier to use and maintain.

Basecamp 3 new

Not so long ago Basecamp released their new version “v3”. Due to significant changes it obviously stopped working on our side and we had to update priorities accordingly.

What have really made us sweat is that this new version doesn’t include any public API. According to Basecamp team, they’ll make it available only in a couple of months. Because we could not wait so long, we had to find a workaround.

Basecamp 3 Integration

I bet everyone already heard of all-new version of Basecamp called “v3″. If not – check out the following blog post where Jason Fried explains everything in great details.

At the same time, it was a new challenge for us because we had to change the entire “embed” mechanism to follow the new interface and principles. And today we are happy to showcase the result.

So, let’s see how Everhour works with Basecamp 3.

Progress-Update - Estimates-All-New-Everhour-Coming

Progress Update (October)

Hello Everyone,

Today we’re excited to announce that we’ve pushed multiple new features that have been requested by many of you.

Export CSV, Excel

The title speaks for itself. In addition to the existing ability to export data into Google Drive, from now on you can do same into file (CSV and Excel).

Last 7 days instead of weekly

In our previous version, getting back to work on Monday and opening Everhour, you saw a blank tracking page. To verify time spent last week, you had to open reports, then return back and make necessary corrections. In some cases you had to switch back and forth multiple times, which is not very convenient. Not anymore!

From now on, our /track page shows last 7 days. So you can easily verify reported time at the beginning of each week.

New Asana Integration

UPD (01/10): Everhour now beautifully sits inside #newAsana. Check how it looks:

Everhour-newAsana

Note. Because Asana allows revert to the old UI for a very short period of time, probably a few weeks, we’ve decided that it makes no sense for us to maintain both versions.

FF/Safari users, you may need to reinstall the extension. Download from our landing page.

30.09

Friends, we need a few days to adapt Everhour to all-new Asana. This is our top priority.

It wouldn’t be a work stop, because you can temporarely switch back to the old interface. Read here - https://asana.com/guide/help/faq/switch-to-old-asana

Sorry about this inconvenience. Will keep you posted.

Everhour - pricing cover 2

Introducing Price Packages

UPD (25/08): Decided to add one more, “solo” package.

Today we’d like to share with you some important news about Everhour.

But first we’d like to thank all the Everhour users. We couldn’t be happier about all the support and feedback we’ve received from you. And we’re very grateful for tolerance that the majority of you have shown in trying times. We really appreciate this!

Over the next few weeks we’re introducing pricing for Everhour. All of the details including price packages and transitional information are below.

Podio - Sorry

Removing Podio Integration

Back in 2014, to help our customers track time, we started offering integration with Podio. Multiple companies quickly embraced the integration and it became one of their regular and lovely tool.

Fast forward to today, we are unhappy to announce the discontinuation of the Podio integration. There basically 2 reasons:

1) Podio has quite specific structure compare to other tools like Basecamp, Trello, Asana or Github. Which is hard to follow and embed to.

2) In the past 6 months, we have very poor traffic from Podio compared to other sources, thus we decided to focus on other tools. Receive tons of feedback/ideas daily and only dozen of us. Have to be very careful with priorities.

And of course we don’t want to sell a poor integration.

As the first step, we have already unlisted Everhour from Podio marketing pages. Next, we will remove “Podio Connect” button from the entire app and stop syncing existing projects.

Sorry to disappoint you :(

You’ll still be able to login your account, see past report and even track time, but without possibility to refer tasks from Podio.

Progress Update (May)

Hi everybody,

Sorry friends for keeping you in the dark so long. We’ve even started getting emails like “Are you guys still alive?”. We are! :) Just super-busy with ongoing work.

There are 2 major things we’d like to share with you today. First is about our latest progress and second is our long term plans.

So, what exactly have we done recently?

We were working hard on our browser extension. Asana users may have already noticed changes. Probably next week the same thing will be released for Trello and Basecamp, and one or two weeks later –  Github and Pivotal.
