Maintaining our momentum during 2021, 22 September 2021

22 September 2021

Now that we’ve got past our EOFY tasks, we should be ready for a new project or two. For the TimeSite team, it’s time to take stock of what we’ve achieved in the last few months and get ready for our next series of updates through to the end of 2021. Rather than making this a (too) long email, we’ll provide a summary of the major enhancements and improvements and encourage you to review our detailed Announcement (this article) and various updated help articles in our Knowledge Base.

Focus Areas

  • Ongoing improvements to our MYOB integration as they rollout MYOB Essentials improving performance, reliability and status feedback
  • Xero integration updated with improved progress and notifications
  • Roster screen improvements
  • Reports screen and reporting improvements
  • Dashboard screen and graphs improvements
  • Invoicing WIP improvements
  • Project budgets and finance improvements

One of the biggest areas of enhancement has been to the User > Security screen. Depending on which TimeSite Pro features have been enabled, additional and more granular options are now available. You can use the updated User - Security - Permissions by User Status report to review how user security permissions have been set up in your account.

Another major area of enhancement has been to our Invoice screens. For example, we've redesigned our Invoice > WIP screen to make it easier to adjust the billable time and units for individual and selected timesheet records before they are included in a draft invoice. These changes are highlighted and you can review the history of adjustments made.

As always, we'll continue to improve the performance of TimeSite Pro. You'll notice, for example, that list screens are loading much faster. We are also working on updates to both our iOS and Android apps, so watch this space. Let us know if you have any suggestions for improvements to TimeSite Pro that will help you and your colleagues. You can find more details on this and other updates to TimeSite Pro in our Knowledge Library. We are always keen to hear from our customers as to how we can improve our solution.
