MrTickTock 3.4 - security and usability improvements

MrTickTock 3.4 has just been released and published at

What's new?

Here is what we have added and improved in this version:

  • Display absence subcategory name
    Subcategory name is now explicitly displayed in all places across the application. Previously we displayed only "Other" indicating sub-category but without specifying particular name. Improved behaviour is more legible and less confusing.

  • Assignee picker improvements
    Assignee picker on the task popup is now rendered under the button that triggers the picker and it can be closed with a mouse click anywhere outside the picker.

  • Last report date fixed
    Last report date in task popup is now correctly calculated. Now it indicates last report of any user and not current one.

  • Task name in tooltip
    When task name is trimmed on Tick-Tock page because it is too long, then full task name is isible in the tooltip.
  • Invite user improved
    When administrator tries to invite a user who has an account in MrTickTock already, we used to display generic message that email address is already registered. It caused confusion among our customers and they had to contact us directly for precise instructions.
    Now the message clearly says that user being invited must deactivate their account first.
  • Security fixes
    We have improved MrTickTock security by fixing few vulnerabilities discovered when performing code reviews and testing.

 What's next?

In next versions we will focus on internationalization of MrTickTock and introduce new role for accessing reports only.

We are also waiting for your suggestions and ideas! Please drop a comment below or browse our feedback system.
