Track time, manage tasks and generate reports online

MrTickTock 1.6 has been released and published at http://mrticktock.com.

What's new?

In this version we have again focused on several improvements:
  • Close and Reopen tasks
    It is a great complement to delete task functionality.
    If you open task and track time for every single activity then you probably have plenty of them and your Tasks view looks messy. Now you can simply close task if you feel it is done and you don't want to track time against it any more. Closed tasks disappear from the view unless you want to show them with 'show closed tasks' checkbox.
    Closed tasks can be reopen if you decide to work more on them.
  • Reports section available for non-admin users
    If you invited other users to your MrTickTock account, probably some of them are in the User role and do not have admin privileges. Since version 1.6 non-admin users can access Reports section and get use of flexible reports. They can of course see only their own data and cannot access reports for other users.
  • Google and Yahoo login
    Google and Yahoo are most popular email providers. We decided to let our customers log in and sign up with just one click without the need of filling Log in or Registration forms.
  • Simple registration
    Standard registration form is now much simpler so new users can start working with MrTickTock even faster than before.
    We will also switch Android app to benefit from that feature and allow mobile users to start using the application without the need for a web based sign up.  
  • Change email
    Have you registered your MrTickTock account for a wrong email address? Have you changed your email provider? It is not a problem for MrTickTock any more. Just go to your profile page and change your email.

As usually there are many more simple improvements and bug fixes which make MrTickTock more usable and friendly.

What's next?

Version 1.7 will bring few more task management facilities. It will be possible to move task between projects and customers. It will be also very easy to duplicate Customer or Project structure - very handy if every new project contains the same set of tasks.

We will also introduce new In/Out view. It will show Start/Stop Work button, time worked, list of users with activated Start Work and few other things related to Today. It will not contain weekly time sheet as it is currently on the Tick-Tock view. The new page is an answer to the customer requests who prefer to focus on the current day and want to have the information bigger and more legible.

After 1.7 we will work on a vacation tracking improvements. We want to make easy not only to set day off but also track Paid Time Off. The new feature will contain calendar preview and summary page.
Another features in the queue are billable hoursinvoices and integration with other project and task management software. We will start with ability to automatically retrieve tasks from JIRA to MrTickTock. Next we will probably integrate with Basecamp and Trello.

That's all for today. You can try all of that at mrticktock.com.

We also publish most recent news via Twitter

Enjoy,
MrTickTock team
