Progress Update (October)

October 13, 2015 · 3 min read

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.

 

Configure time format & rounding

Many of our customers asked for an opportunity to manage their time rounding settings.

Some people were saying that if they spent 2 hrs 46 minutes, they expect to see it as is, do not round this to 3 hrs. Others told us that they always round up and bill their clients by quarter-hour. So, 2h 13m is actually 2h 15m

From now on, if you open your profile settings, you’ll notice time rounding dropdown with 7 options {none, 5m, 10m, 15m, 20m, 30m, 1h}

In addition, we’ve decided to give you the ability to control the display format. You can choose of the following: 1:15, 1h 15 min or 1.25

Lock time edit for members

Everhour is very simple yet flexible tool, but when it comes to teamwork, there are certain rules and procedures to respect. For this reason, we give admins the possibility to limit other colleagues in changing their timesheets after a certain period of time

Go to your organization settings and choose from one of available options: {none, 3 days, 5 days, week, 2 weeks, month).

Say I’m a regular member in organization with a “weekly” limit configured. In such a case, on Monday I no longer able to change entries I made on previous Monday and earlier.

This feature is optional and designed for those who really need it.

Reporting: show tasks with estimate but without time

Until recently, a task shows up in reports only in case it has some time reported. But after we added estimates, this is not enough.

For instance, you can set estimates before starting a project and export initial project assessment. Or you can see a report of project remaining time, not only hours spent.

Right now you can filter your Task report to show all tasks, with just estimates or only with reported time.
