Continuing with the improvements in project management we are very happy to introduce a brand new feature: the board 🎉
The TrackingTime board is an agile project management feature designed to help visualize workflow, work in progress and maximize efficiency. It is a brilliant visual tool that offers an overview of the current state of work and simplifies team communication in which cards are tasks and columns are task lists that can represent stages of the project 🚀
In this release:
We’ve implemented WebSockets. This is a technology that provides a two-way and open communication between backend and frontend in real time.
What should you expect from this update?
For the moment this is only implemented on certain methods for the web app, we will be including all methods and then expand to all our apps.
We are planning something big! This is the beginning of a series of improvements to the project management feature. We started by improving the way you add and edit tasks 👏👏
Now you can:
🚀 Navigate through the whole TrackingTime app without leaving your Microsoft Teams workspace.
We have improved the app’s responsive design to adapt it to Microsoft Teams environment and allow you and your team to enjoy all the TrackingTime features right from the same collaborative space ❤
Reporting, dashboards and team management are now included in the integration! 🙌
We are very happy to announce that we’ve started rolling out a whole new TrackingTime with a refined design. We’ve introduced significant improvements to enhance the UX based on our users feedback.
Enjoy the biggest TrackingTime update ever! 😍
See all that’s new:
In this update we have improved the integration by adding new functionalities:

More commands are on their way!
Track your time right within your Hangouts Chat session using all the available commands. 🎉
In this update we include🤗:
This time we have redesigned the forms: New style for projects and tasks edition forms and new style in settings forms.
New App Style and Tasks Section Redesign
In addition to the app makeover we have improved the Tasks section: navigate the left panel by Task, Project and Team. Now you are able to see the tasks assigned to each user. We have also adjusted the tasks priority icons to differentiate them from the project’s colors (more project’s colors to come!)
Tasks and Projects Selector
When selecting a task and project from the timer to start tracking or adding a new time entry you will be able to choose between your recent activity. You will still be able to see all your tasks and projects and even set your favorites to see them at the top of the list.
Shared Tasks and Project Permissions
When sharing a task the user selector is better organized and displays a separate list between users with access to the project and users without it.
Break down of advanced permissions for Co-workers. Edit tasks and Edit projects can be selected separately this way you can allow users to create and mark tasks as done and prevent them to create projects.
We redesigned the whole section so it’s easier to create and define them.
In the next few weeks we’ll continue with the design update, we hope you like it and send feedback!
We have added 4 more integrations to the TrackingTime Button so you can keep on tracking your time within your favourite productivity web apps.
🥁 Let’s welcome!:
Check out the latest update!
Timecards latest improvements!:
In this release we introduced some improvements to PDF Timesheets exports configuration:
👉 In this release we give you the ability to Edit and Delete recurring time entries in batch.
Click on the time entry and custom your edition 🤗
If you are used to add your hours manually you will certainly love this enhancements!😊
In this release:
Ok..😊 We understood is a bit awkward to be creating 1-hour time entries by accident when clicking on the calendar so for your convenience we have improved this action in this release: Feel free to Quit Editing your time entries without generating unnecessary data.
In this release, some visual improvements 😊:
Now you can choose how to display your Recent Activity: Try the New List view 👀 in the Hours section or access through the Shortcut at the top of the screen. ⏰ Add, edit and track your tasks in a more organized way!🙌
Also in this release:
We hope you are enjoying the new Log In´s fresh style!😍
✨ This time we have also introduced a revamped Onboarding process for new users 👯♂️ and some extra design adjustments so that TrackingTime looks better than ever! 💅
Tasks are 4x faster⚡️: we rolled back up the optimization for tasks!
We created a new report that reflects your team clock ins & outs 👇👆. We process the time entries detecting breaks, extra and regular hours with a flexible submission process so you can define your own flow 🦄
With apps we will allow you to customize and extend TrackingTime 💪
On this release we fine-tuned timesheets for better readability and we also re-organized the menu moving Pace into reports also you’ll notice a few design tweaks here and there
We noticed that some of you are clicking on the download button like 20 times just to get separate files, we got your back! No you can download all the timesheet groups at once.
tasks are 9x faster⚡️: we rolled back the optimization for tasks because a small error in some accounts created snowball effect affecting everybody. Hang on, we will release the optimization soon!
Now you can easily mark time entries as billed or not billed in the Timesheets section. This feature comes in handy when you are creating time reports for client invoicing, billing or payroll.
To mark time entries as billed / not billed, please follow these steps:
By going to “team”, you can now set how much you charge and how much it costs you per hour and generate reports around this.
Analyzing your team’s hours allows you to get actionable insights into how your team is distributing their time across projects and clients. By adding hourly rate as an indicator, your analysis will be much more complete and efficient, and you’ll be able to take better business decissions.
Version 4.46: UI improvements!
We revamped the entire top navigation with a cleaner new player , some cool rounded buttons
Version 4.42: we keep tweaking our services, you should note a faster response time when loading your projects. Also we fixed the nav bar in small resolutions.
With the new TrackingTime Button for Firefox, you’ll be able to add time tracking to your favourite business and productivity apps and get your timesheets created automatically. Currently, we support project management apps like Asana, Basecamp, Trello, Smartsheet and many more. Additionaly, the TrackingTime Button allows you to track time directly in Google Docs, Google Sheets, Outlook and more than 30 popular online services.
Another great feature of the new Firefox extension are customizable tracking reminders. When you enable them, you’ll be notified when you’re not tracking and can also make sure that you’re always tracking the correct task.
Since version 4.41 we added the collapsed mode for the main nav and a little red dot indicator that will display whenever we have a product update so you see what we are up-to
After we merged Calendar and Activity, we realized that everybody loved a different aspects of those views
We’ve built a completely new reporting engine that makes creating even complex timesheets easier and faster than ever before. The new timesheets combine the best features previously available in timesheets and custom reports and add a few new handy tools.
Web, Chrome & Mac v4.38
For most of us is hard to keep the discipline of tracking working hours. Even harder is to make our teams track theirs
Hello and happy June!
Yesterday, we have started rolling-out new versions of all our apps, i.e. the web, chrome, mac and mobile apps as well as the TrackingTime Button for Chrome and the Slack Bot.
Now you can set up reminders to track your time in The TrackingTime Button.
Go to settings > notitifications:
You’ll be able to set up your working hours (so we don’t remind you to work when you are watching Netflix ???? ) and the frequency you want to be reminded.
Still don’t have the TrackingTime Button? Get it here!
For years now we’ve been reading the same request over and over again: Can I assign a task to more than one user? And the answer was always “No”.
We weren’t the only ones. Wunderlist had this request for over 4 years on their “feature request” list with over 3 thousand votes, being in the top 20 of most voted and didn’t come to terms with it. Asana has even written a blog post explaining why they support only one assignee per task.
Our app is task based, not only in concept, but Tasks are our main entity. This means we had to modify the core of our app and absolutely everything (every feature, every line of code, and every action) was affected by this change. Maybe this is what drove other task based apps to not add this feature.
Not only had we to decide whether we wanted to go through this process and possibly rewrite all the code. We had to make sure this idea wasn’t just driven by trying to satisfy our customers, but because it really made sense for project management.
And it did.
Some companies believe they should rely on tasks to keep their employees accountable. And that can be the case if you just give employees a to-do list with things they ought to complete by some given time. In this scenario if two workers share a task, one might take advantage of the other, but this is not true for all the companies and all the projects. Does a construction worker stop putting bricks because someone else is doing it? Sometimes the task at hand is just too big for one person. Are you going to divide the wall into two just so you can give each employee a task?
We understood that this was the way to go and this led to adding more related features
Now, you can define tasks to be assigned to all users in your team, or in a project. So whenever you add new users they will automatically have these tasks assigned to them without further actions from an admin. Also, users can share tasks created before this update, as well as reassigning them to other people.
This has been a major update and this is a major feature that set us apart from all the other time tracking apps.
We couldn’t be prouder of our team and wanted to share it with you.
The TrackingTime Team
We are constantly working on improving the overall performance. We already enhanced retrieving projects and now we are working with time entries. We expect to have visible results in the next week or two.
In this update we entirely redesigned the Project reports, now it’s easier to anticipate overtime and control deadlines. PRO users are now able to see an overview of all the projects and a detailed view of the tasks and users distribution.
Navigate to Reports > Projects and tell us what you think!
We enabled the Activity and Dashboard views for the co-workers.
We improved the task search at least a 400% and the project listing.
We added key navigation in all the select menus, project and tasks. Just move around using your keyboard and press enter!
Now you can filter your timesheets by closed tasks and notes.
There are some other cool updates in the oven!
See you again next year! Happy Holidays!
Ok! this update has a lot so let’s break it down into pieces:
We made it easy to import your times entries to TrackingTime.
Just copy and paste from Excel, Google Spreadsheets or Numbers. Match your columns with ours and that is it!
Give it try here or share the link with those friends who are using another time tracker so they can use TT without losing all of their data.
Also in this version we improved the reports loading time for those of you that have too many time entries and are looking to get a full year of data. (Yep, our servers are happy with you )
We added an Activity Tab on your Task detail
Now you can add time entries from it. Just add time!
Also in this release:
This update is all about Timesheets!
Fixes in this version:
We know you are wondering what about Custom reports.
Yep, we are taking all these improvements to it soon ????
Since version 4.28 TrackingTime also comes in black or we can call it “Deep space blue with touches of red”.
Give it a try going to “Settings” and check “Dark mode”.
( Please don’t request a “Rose gold” theme, we won’t do it! ???? ).
New stuff in this version:
We just added Any.do, Azendoo & Redbooth to the TrackingTime Button!
Also in version 1.4:
Bookmark your Custom Reports so you don’t need to do them over an over! 😤
Now we send you a notification when a task or a project exceeds the estimated time.
Also we are introducing the “Time cop” that sends you an email if you forget to stop tracking. 👮
Some fixes in v4.27 :
If you use Slack you will fall in ❤️ with our Bot!
You can ask about your tasks, start and stop tracking, see what everybody is doing and many other actions right from Slack.
Install the Bot from here, then type /tt help to see all available commands!
With the 1.3 update you can track your time right from Smartsheet using a simple formula!
Check this article to find out how.
Also we fixed:
We just released “Working On”, a component that allows you to see what everybody is tracking on the activity tab and helps you avoid unnecessary interruptions asking “What you doin’?”. We also improved the refresh time of the project’s duration, no need to click that refresh button anymore 👏.
Working on is only available for PRO accounts 💪
Also in v4.26 :
Sorry but this one is just for PRO’s 😎
Now you can delete and edit time entries from your timesheets, no need going to the activity tab to edit! (unless you really want to).
This is the first step to add bulk editing, More features coming soon 💪
You can click the little “Edit” Button by the side of your task to edit them, we really hope this will make your Tracking easier.
More information in your project list! Check your project’s progress and worked hours right from your tasklist.

Finally some love for the Activity tab!
Also in v4.24:
Since v 4.23 PRO users can see automatic charts and analysis based on the data in your Timesheets and Custom Reports using the Insights feature.
Also in this version:

We also included a Rate Us! option in the menu.🙏

One of our most used features is the Timesheets report, please send us ideas on how would you like us to improve it!
We are constantly revising our UI, in this update we adjusted:
In this release we addressed many design issues!
We had too many complaints about the red navigation, what do you think about it…
Is the red too much for you too?
Now all our Mac App users can also enjoy the new TrackingTime.
You can download it here.
We just forgot that this kind of devices existed!
After the 1st release we found many users that have touch screen + mouse devices. This made the app unresponsive and didn’t allow the users to interact with the buttons. Everything seemed “frozen” for them!
This fix came in 3 separated versions, you never get it right working late night 😤
One of our main goals at TrackingTime is to be available on all your devices, on any platform. Today, we’re moving a big step forward towards this goal: Please say hello to our native desktop app for Mac OS X!
