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

Extension UPD: Estimates, Remaining Time + Sneak Peek of All-New Everhour

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.

1. Estimates & remaining time

Everhour+Freshbooks

Everhour Now Features FreshBooks Integration

We’re super excited to announce that Everhour is integrated with FreshBooks which means all our users can now export their time reports directly to Freshbooks and then send client invoices with this cool tool. Yay!

FreshBooks as well as Xero is one of the most popular accounting software for small and medium sized businesses. Since we first introduced Xero sync to test out the whole concept of invoicing integration, we’ve been getting too many requests to add FreshBooks, so many that we couldn’t simply neglect them.

Everhour New Team Calendar

This post is dedicated to Everhour functionality that hasn’t been paid a lot of attention to previously – our team calendar. The calendar may seem like a secondary feature: it neither boasts integrations with project management tools nor helps handling tasks. However, this guy can come in very handy when needed.

Let’s see if you can relate to any of the following situations within your team/company:

  • managing your team’s vacations, days off, sick days
  • planning vacations in advance to avoid overlaps with others
  • coming up with a way for people to check on their schedule any time
  • informing employees about their teammates’ absence from work

Sounds familiar? With our calendar, you can solve all these issues and easily keep track of such events as day shifts, team building activities, birthdays, clients’ being out of office, public holidays, etc.

Future-of-Everhour-Invoicing3

Insights: Future of Everhour Invoicing

N.B. This post is of huge importance for us since we need to decide where to move on in terms of invoicing in Everhour. And how else can we make the best decision if not based on your very much welcomed feedback? :) So give the article some thought and share your ideas in the comments or via email sent at mike.kulakov {at} everhour.com.

Invoicing basics

If you are using Everhour, you must have noticed that the app has an option to make a project billable. It all works ridiculously simply: by choosing Yes, you’ll have all the project time considered billable, while with No selected, the hours will be recognized as non-payable.

chrome-extension-release

Everhour Chrome Extension Launched

We are excited as heck because the long-awaited Everhour Chrome extension has just been released. Huray!

When choosing a web browser to start with, we looked into the app usage analytics to see that Google Chrome was actually the most popular one. Sorry if you’re not a Chrome person but don’t you worry – as soon as early feedback is collected, Firefox and Safari will be coming your way!

Though we ourselves feel very happy about the first version (hope that doesn’t sound too cocky :) ), it is still essential to hear your opinion vs. just being content with our own judgement.

So don’t hold back and let us know your honest initial impressions: whether the installation process is smooth, if the extension works fine, etc. You can do it via the comments section or by emailing at mike.kulakov {at} everhour.com. Hoping to hear from you!

Below are more details on how to install and use the Everhour plugin, great opportunities it gives and the overall functionality.

Tweaks-Coming-to-Pivotal-Time-Tracking,-Integrations-&-Reports

UPD: Tweaks Coming to Pivotal Time Tracking, Integrations & Reports

Note: The article will primarily describe improvements related to Pivotal Tracker but except for a few app-specific things, most of these features will be implemented with other integrations as well.

From the start, our goal with Pivotal time tracking was to release a first version in line with our own vision to then get maximum user feedback and polish the functionality based on your suggestions. Luckily for us, we have the most engaged customers ever and it’s been very rewarding to see all the positive reviews and what’s even cooler, improvement ideas.

Special kudos goes to @Dave, @Joseph, @Ryan, @Mark, @Michael, @Andy, @Brian, and @Douglas for such active participation in discussions. Thank you guys for the involvement!

It’s also hard not to mention the Pivotal Tracker team who have supported us a lot. We reached out to them telling about the initial positive reaction to the integration and asking for help to get even more feedback. They actually really liked Everhour and featured it on their page for some time which was awesome.

@Ronan, really appreciate your help and responding at the speed of light!

Time Tracking in the New Basecamp

Update (20/08/14)! Most recent changes here - https://everhour.com/integrations/basecamp/

On the way to optimizing time tracking with Everhour more and more, we’re always looking at the most popular project management tools as potential integrations. After exploring what our users can benefit from, we have already added such beasts as Trello, GitHub, and Asana to the kit but that’s not where we’re going to stop :)

Our team is happy to announce that from now on Everhour can become a go-to time tracker for numerous Basecamp users as well. Basecamp is a powerful project management solution chosen by millions of people, our own customers included. And we by no means wanted to deprive them of an opportunity for seamless and handy integration with their project activities.

I guess this might be especially big news for those who have switched to the all new version of the tool and experienced the lack of the time tracking feature. We know that some of Basecamp customers even prefer to stick with the Classic app instead of upgrading just because they are afraid to lose the priceless functionality. But that’s not the case any more.

Everhour v. 1.2

UPD: Asana and Trello Integrations, Better Reports and More

Hooray! We’ve finally released a big and long-awaited Everhour update. We’ve been working on it for a couple of months sharing some of the plans and thoughts with you on the go, and now we are ready and excited to present you the brand-new version that will make your time management process a bigillion times better.

Note: since the added changes are quite huge, we might have missed something trying to make all the cool features live as soon as possible, so don’t be too harsh on us guys :) In case you notice any issues, please let us know via the feedback & support form.

Now let’s get started with listing all the goodies you’re getting with this update.

Asana and Trello integrations

Insights: Asana & Trello Integration

Update (20/08/14)! Most recent integration changes for Asana and Trello.

I hope there is no need to explain what Asana and Trello are. These ultimate task management tools for sharing, planning and organizing work are used daily by tons of people and our team is no exception.

Since Everhour is aimed at helping track time spent on tasks, we thought that it’d be a shame to neglect those two. Right now the only way to “interact” with Asana or Trello activities is by copy-pasting a task name in Everhour and entering the number of hours with no opportunity to generate dedicated time reports. That’s not the way to go :)

Our team has lately been working on syncing with Asana and Trello which will bring the following perks:

  1. Quickly refer to your tasks without manually typing their titles.
  2. Add extra comments to tasks in Everhour to provide an all-round description.
  3. View detailed time stats for any task.
  4. Analyze project time distribution by labels, milestones, status, etc.

A lot has already been done in terms of these integrations and the big update is coming (involving new reports and filters as well).

Connecting with Asana and Trello is a really important step and we’d like the functionality to be smooth, that’s why we are sharing the details with you beforehand. In case we’ve missed something, you may feel free to suggest improvement points for our consideration.

So, this is how it all is going to work.
