Activity report fixes

As mentioned in our previous log, we created a completely new Activity view. There were some minor issues that we now fixed. We also made a progress on our mobile apps (iOS and Android).

  1. [FIXED] When multiple filters were used, downloaded documents presented incorrect data.
  2. [IMPROVEMENT] Better visibility of "active" filters.
  3. [FIXED] Incorrect decimal format in some cases.
  4. [FIXED] Multiple time logs were tracked via mobile apps.
  5. [IMPROVEMENT] Improved visibility of date selector in mobile apps.
  6. [FIXED] Project selector overflowed other elements.

There might still be some bugs running loose. Please let us know if you cross paths with any of them by chance.

New Activity chart & details

We've been working hard on My Hours Activity report for the past 3 month and we're proud to finally release it to our customers.

Activity report that was in Beta preview for a few months is now available to all new customers. We've also redesigned how we display details on each time log. (And we're still improving it.)

But the biggest change is the addition of Activity chart at the top of the Activity report. We hope it will empower you, our customer, to find helpful insights even faster.

With this new chart you'll get answers to questions like:

  • which days have missing entries?
  • which tasks take more time than others?
  • is our billable time increasing over time?

Let us know if you have any questions or feedback in general by emailing us.

Import your timesheets

We realize that you might have existing time logs inside spreadsheets. Either you entered them manually over time or you exported them from some other tool.

My Hours now enables you to upload these timesheets and get all the data you need inside the application. This way, all your time history will be in one place and enable you to use our advanced reporting functionality.

Contact us if you need help with importing.

[BETA] New Activity report

We've received a lot of suggestions regarding our Activity report. The most requested were:

  • searching for time logs by their description
  • being able to filter by more than one entity
  • displaying all time logs for selected Project/Client
  • fix the timeout error when large amount of time logs is requested

From this day forward, you can request a Preview of the new Activity report that includes all these functionalities. Just send us an email to [email protected] and we'll enable it.

In the coming weeks we'll add brand new charts to the report and ability to save and schedule selected reports.

Happy tracking!

Faster Tracker

We've made significant changes to the way My Hours collects and displays Projects and Tasks in the Tracker dropdowns.

Now, selecting Projects and Tasks will be faster than ever.

Keep in mind, though, if you are assigned to 1000s of Projects it might still take a while to display them. We suggest to archive unused projects or unassign members that do not need them.

Reimagined billing rate management

We've recently released a new version that includes a completely new way to change billing rates for past time logs.

One thing that we've heard over and over is how hard is to update rates on the time logs that already had a legacy rate applied.

Below is a quick explanation of all the changes and how they work. For more info, please visit our help center.

  1. Project billing rates and approval: Whenever you change billing method, billing rate or approval settings, you can apply these changes to existing time logs by clicking on the link beside Save button. This is nothing new. What is new is that even if make no changes, you can simply click a link "Changes will be applied...", change the date in the popup and your project setting will apply to existing time logs.

  2. Team member and task billing rates and approval: Up until now, it was almost impossible to update a team member's rate on existing time logs. You can now, just like on Projects, simply update billing rate with a click on a link at the bottom of the page.

We realize we might confuse some with this new system. Please write us an email to [email protected] with any questions or suggestions.

Budgeting revisited

There are 2 important changes we made to Budgeting functionality inside My Hours:

  1. Administrators can now enable an email notification when a budget threshold is met.

  2. We're removing the Budget report view, since budget information is now available on the Projects page. The Budget link will remain inside navigation dropdown for a while, but will redirect you to Projects page.

Duplicate Projects

You can now make a copy of an existing Project. This functionality is great for those that have many similar Projects, as you can create a new Project with the same Client, Tasks and Team members already assigned to it.
