It’s been a decade since we started TrackingTime and a lot has changed since then. Looking ahead to the next ten years, we decided to revamp our brand to keep up with our product roadmap and evolution. We know where we want to be, and we want our brand to reflect that. The result is a brand new image to match our vision for the future of TrackingTime.
Redesigning Our Brand
Focusing mainly on product development over the last few years, we wanted to shake things up and rebrand TrackingTime to better communicate who we are and where we’re going.
Our passion for design made this the perfect opportunity to flex our creative muscles. So we got to work and created a new logo and updated our color scheme. Even though we wanted the core of our brand to remain recognizable, we feel this fresh, renovated look better reflects our path and goals for the future.
Taking the Next Steps
We’re really excited to introduce our brand new image, as we continue to make every effort to meet the challenges of a fast-paced, ever-changing world of work.
Our mission is to help SMBs manage their work with an all-in-one solution. That’s what drives us. We want to simplify your daily tasks so you can use your time more efficiently.
Thanks to our carefully crafted product roadmap, we feel confident we can help you with that. So that you can focus on what really matters: the real work that moves your business forward.
TrackingTime has everything you need under one roof. You can manage work hours, time off, work schedules, attendance, project progress, planning, budgeting, reports and invoicing. Basically, everything you need to run a business.
This year we released two important new custom views: Project timeline and Company-wide Timeline, to enable you to track all your ongoing projects, and their progress, and see how they relate to one another. And we aim to add new features to these views over the first months of 2023. Additionally, we’ll create new views to help companies visualize their projects and collaborate seamlessly online. In the meantime, here’s what you can already do with both timelines:
This view provides an overview of all key elements of any project, allowing you and your team to manage everything together. As a result, you can see what everyone in your team is working on, which can improve planning and communication.
This project-level timeline allows you to organize all your projects, and visualize how each one connects to the rest. It might be helpful for you and your team to plan out work and projects, increasing productivity and improving teamwork.
We’ll keep you updated on upcoming features and improvements for Project and Company-wide Timelines.
Budgeting and Invoicing
After collecting much feedback on invoicing, we have reached the third iteration, which supports more countries and use cases. And following our roadmap, we have planned a lot of enhancements for 2023 to make our invoices as reliable as possible.
Furthermore, we strive to improve project and user budgeting. We call it the Money Mode. We just released a new feature that allows you to create different time periods for your team. Money mode is based on this, which we believe is the core of the feature. By early 2023, we will be launching a complete budgeting feature with a wide range of budgeting styles for our clients to keep track of their budgets.
As we wait for these amazing updates, take a look at the current state of these invoicing and some more details of what money mode will bring next:
Using this feature streamlines your invoicing process. Through this improved version, you can visualize and record every step of the process, from draft to open and paid.
Additionally, identify overdue invoices, set a language and currency for each of them, add up to 3 taxes, duplicate any invoice as needed, and export them to Quickbooks smoothly. And we removed our logo as well.
As we mentioned before, an improved version of this add-on is arriving in 2023. This will enable you to set up billable projects and tasks, and establish validity periods for each team member’s price and cost. As a result, it will become an integral part of project budgeting, giving you the option to keep track of all your budgets in the way that suits you best.
We redesigned our desktop and mobile apps. And soon we will be adding a new app to the family, called Autotrack. As you can imagine, Autotrack will keep a record of all the applications that are used on your computer at a set time. But don’t worry: Autotrack is designed with privacy at its core. No information will leave your computer. This data will only be accessible to you and is only meant to function as a reminder of what you did in the past days.
Meanwhile, check out what’s new with the rest of our apps:
We repositioned the menu and moved the hour bar up to improve navigation through the different days by enabling a left-right swipe. We also enhanced the form creation for time entries. A new task design also provides better visibility for descriptions, history records, comments, and hours. You can now organize all your tasks, visualize which are complete, and add task lists right from the app.
Further, we redesigned the player, so you can just hit play and start tracking an empty task. Then you can click the list icon next to the player to select which task to track. Smooth, huh?
On the other hand, the improved desktop app lets you manage projects and tasks. And, with the enhanced player, you can easily start and stop tracking.
The Safari extension was also released this year. Now you can move across browsers and use the Tracking Button enabled in all of them. Additionally, we released new integrations with Figma, Coda, ClickUp, and many more.
This is an entirely new area of our product that was released a few weeks ago. While using TrackingTime to record working hours, we understand that having a time-off management tool inside the app is a must. This first integration brings holidays, time-off requests and approval, and the third version of Time Cards.
Our new useful add-on, Time-off, allows employees to request vacations and absences, which the admin can approve or deny. In addition, this tool lets management visualize their team’s time-off on Pace and Hours, to ensure they have someone on call while avoiding annoying reminders and interruptions.
With the new version of Time Cards, admins can get a quick overview and identify which time cards are missing or incomplete. Also, we came up with a better time card screen, including a unique send button and mass editing options. Moreover, we added useful automation features, like reminders to submit time cards, automatic submission, and blocking editions after a certain period.
Work Schedules with Validity Period
Considering that certain members of your team might have changed their schedules, we enabled historic work schedules. As a result, you can keep an accurate record of each employee’s work schedule, even if they started working part-time and they’re now on a full-time schedule. And you can set or edit membership periods from each member’s profile.
What This Roadmap And New Look Mean for Our Future
We redesigned our brand to reflect how we evolved since we started our company ten years ago, with an eye on our future path, which looks pretty awesome! Our new image represents our growth and where we stand today, and draws the line to guide our future. With a complete business solution that can adapt to the culture of any kind of company, we plan to keep growing alongside our clients.
Project timeline and Company-wide Timeline enable you to track all your ongoing projects, and their progress, and see how they relate to one another.
