Version 5 of our passive timekeeping software is ready for you to use. We’d love to hear what you think – it’s our biggest revamp of the main web interface since 2012 (yeah time really does fly).
You can upgrade to the latest release by going to Account – General – Change Version. That’ll flip your interface over to “v5.”
If you decide you’re not ready for it yet, you can flip back. But we’d love to get you using the new release so that we can start receiving feedback and prioritize new features accordingly.
What’s New in v5
The interface is the big overhaul. We now have the navigation on the left, so that you can single-click directly into any other area of the product.
The time capture display is a bit bigger. We still capture and display time the same way (down to the minute… actually down to the second but rounded up to the minute with a fancy algorithm).
Our big goal with the new release is to help speed up the categorization of time entries. We capture a lot of stuff – getting it all onto a timesheet can be challenging, we know.
To that end, we have a new rules preview feature that will give you a look at how the rule will bucket time before you implement it. Gmail users, this will look familiar to you if you make use of Gmail’s filters.
Going forward, now that the interface is ready, we will be looking at more ways to speed up timesheet creation. We’d love to hear from you on this front especially. Which brings me to my next point…
Help Suggest & Prioritize Features
We setup a dedicated v5 feature forum discussion in our Zendesk help desk software. You can access the forum here.
Remember those feature requests you’ve mentioned to us before? Please be sure to post them here after you check out the new interface.
You can also “vote up” features that you like the best. This will help us prioritize our development – whatever gets the most votes will get worked on next.
How To Get Started
As I mentioned earlier, current Chrometa users can go to Account – General – Change Version to upgrade to v5.
