TimeSite completes our new Messaging feature, 21 Jan 2020

21 January 2020

Our TimeSite Pro development team is off to a fast start for 2020 with the completion of our new Messaging feature.

Previously, you set up email and SMS messages for reminders to submit timesheets, etc. in Settings > Email & Messaging. This interface was becoming unwieldy as we added new options such as user onboarding messages. We had also been asked by several customers to develop a new "broadcast" feature to send one-off messages to all or some of their TimeSite Pro users. We decided to implement our new Messaging capability in two stages: release the broadcast message first, then transfer our existing notifications out of the Settings screen and into the new Messages screen.

We hope that you'll agree that this new UI makes life a lot easier for your administrators to set up and manage TimeSite Pro notifications.

The Messaging screen now has three configuration options (tabs) and a new logging tab. You can configure One-Off broadcast emails (announced in December), Scheduled notifications such as reminders to submit a timesheet, and Triggered messages such the user onboarding email.

We still have some additional ideas for our Messaging capabilities but, in the meantime, if you have any feedback for us, please send us an email to [email protected].

As always our 19 January build includes additional quality of life improvements. Go to our detailed Announcement article in our Knowledge Base for more information.
