Track time and store time ranges with MrTickTock 1.8.2


MrTickTock 1.8 has been released and published at http://mrticktock.com.

What's new?

Please welcome new Tick-Tock day view (in addition to the weekly time sheet), time ranges and few other improvements.

Here is the list of the most important changes:
  • Day view
    Beside of the existing weekly time sheet our users can now enjoy Day view available in the Tick-Tock tab. It provides not only time reporting facility but also contains additional information like Users on the clock and Time ranges and has much more exposed Start/Stop Work feature.
    Those of you who don't care about other days of the week will surely love it.
  • Users on the clock
    Do you want to know who else has started timer and is tracking time in the company? Nothing simpler, just look at the Users on the clock box in the Day view (Tick-Tock tab). Collapse the box if you are not interested.
  • Time ranges
    Few of you asked for that feature. It appeared that you want to store not only a total time worked on a task but also In and Out times to justify overtime and for other reasons.
    Here it is. Time ranges are visible on the Tick-Tock day view in task details. They can be also included in the report grouped by Date and Task so you can share it with your boss or customers. Over midnight time tracking is fully supported!
  • HTML notification emails
    We have switched to html view for all notification emails. They look much more pretty and are more legible.
    There is still alternative plain text view available for non-html friendly email readers.
  • Simple sign up
    That's actually a feature for newcomers. In order to create a new account it is enough to provide just an email and password. All the rest (first and last name, and account name) is auto-generated. There is of course possibility to manually change all the fields. Sign up takes now no more than 20 seconds!
  • Introduction wizard
    We have added simple introduction wizard which helps to make few first steps within the application. It pops up hints on how to enter time, set day off, perform task actions or switch Tick-Tock view between day and weekly time sheet.
  • Performance improvements
    We have identified and fixed few performance issues, mostly in the Projects & Customers tab - it works faster and is much more responsive now.
  • Week begins with Saturday
    Our customer reported that in some countries like Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan people use local calendars in which week begins on Saturday (calendars like Hijri-Shamsi and Hijri-Ghamari).
    Therefore we have added support for Saturday as the week beginning. It allows to display time sheet starting from Saturday as well as correctly count weekly workload. Enjoy!

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

What's next?

Version 1.9 will bring new vacation tracking facilities:
  • Monthly calendar preview with users' time off. That's a great solution for managers who want to plan work ahead and need a quick time off preview for the coming month(s).
  • User card view with brief information about time worked, time off, active tasks, etc.
  • New time off reports with information on users time off for the past week, month, year or a custom period.

All of the above will make it easy to track paid time off in MrTickTock 1.9.

In the next versions we want to also add billable hoursinvoices and integration with other project and task management software like JIRA and Google tasks.

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

We also publish most recent news via Twitter

Enjoy,
MrTickTock team
