Timeneye Chrome extension and new features

In the past month we’ve received plenty of suggestions to make Timeneye better, many of you brought us new ideas to improve everyone’s time tracking experience.

Yesterday we’ve released Timeneye’s biggest update so far. Have a look at what changed:

  • Improved timers
  • Better PDF generator
  • Move entries across projects
  • A whole new Team Status view
  • Google Chrome plugin

Improved timers

Timers are now stored server-side for web browsers and widgets and they will be soon synchronized on mobile apps as well. This means that if you start a timer on Timeneye Android or iOS app, this will be automatically synchronized with Timeneye web app.

Stopping or running a timer has never been so easy. We’ve replaced the green and red dots with a simple active time icon. Just click on a timer to stop it and re-click to start it again.

Better PDF generator

We’ve noticed that many of you were struggling to export big amounts of data from Timeneye. Our developers have been working hard to fix some bugs and improve this feature: now it’s easier and quicker to export reports in PDF.

Move entries across projects

From now on it will be possible to move entries between different projects and tasks without deleting them and creating new ones.

Simply open an Entries Log screen by clicking on a specific task inside a project.

Select “Move Entries” at the bottom of the page.

You’ll have now to select the entries that you want to move and select a target. This can be done by ticking the “Move” boxes for each of the entries you want to move.

In the “Target” section, you can assign a new Project, Task and User to single or multiple time entries.

Just hit “Move selected entries” to confirm.

A whole new Team Status view

We believed that the Status menu needed to be improved: we’ve noticed that there were some redundant charts and information that weren’t really useful for project managers and admins.

That is why Projects’ budget is now shown in the Projects view: we believed that having real time budgets accessible from your projects view will save you a lot of time.

Projects are now sorted by:

  • Recent: project with time entries in the last 7 days;
  • Active: all the projects that aren’t archived;
  • Archived: archived projects.

We’ve also replaced BC and RB with the two logos for Basecamp and Redbooth to add some extra color to the Projects view.

Every user assigned to your projects is listed here in alphabetical order along with the top 3 projects who he/she has been working at in the latest 7 days.

We’ve also added a momentum to your projects under the “Team Effort” tab. It is now easy to monitor the trend of your projects in real time: just select a timeframe (today, previous 7 days and last 30 days) to see if the total time effort for a project has increased (red up-arrow) or decreased (green dow-arrow).

Google Chrome plugin

We are extremely excited to announce that Timeneye has now a Google Chrome browser extension! We have created this button for easy one-click time tracking. You can now add Timeneye extension to your Chrome browser and start the online timer whenever you want. We have also added a keyboard shortcut to open a new timer: Alt + Shift + T. Get Timeneye Chrome extension for free!

The new Timeneye Chrome extension integrates also with Basecamp: you can now start timers for single to-dos by clicking on the Timeneye icon next to your to-do item!

In the next weeks we are going to integrate Timeneye button with other leading productivity software. Stay tuned!

If something doesn’t seem to be working or you simply just want to tell us how cool this is, then send us an email at [email protected]

Happy tracking!
