User Interface & Time Logging Improvements

Posted by: The Teamwork team /

One of the suggestions that kept cropping up in feedback was the ability to lock the editing and deleting of Time Logs down to the person that logged the time. So, this month we have changed the permissions for who can edit/delete time logs.

Administrators can (as always) edit or delete any Time Log. For ordinary users who can log time, they are now restricted to only being able to edit/delete time logs they added themselves.

This month we also extended the keyboard shortcut for logging time on a task to the Everything->All Active Tasks and Dashboard/Project Overview Today/Late/Upcoming tabs to make logging time on tasks even faster. Simply put your mouse over a task and hit “T” on the keyboard to log time on the task.

The View Task page also got some attention this month. Before this month we used to list any associated time logs without the ability to Edit/Delete the entries.

This month we extended the listing so people can Add/Edit/Delete time entries right inside the View Task page.

Starring projects: The quick way

We’ve improved the project title header by adding a star icon beside the project name. This allows you to quickly see if you have ‘starred’ the project already and easily toggle the starred status on or off.

This image shows the old project header without the star.

Below is the new project header showing the starred status to the left of the project name.

Other UI Improvements

  • Project chart

Added ability to filter the chart by Category. Just click a category on the left-hand side and the chart will filter by this category.

  • Tasks

Dependent tasks now updated in real-time instead of refreshing the whole tasks page.

We also added a new option to choose whether to push dates of dependent tasks.

When viewing a single task you can now move the task to another list. We added this option to the left of the View Task page.

  • Notify Reminder Alert

We added a new user setting to suppress the (sometimes annoying) prompt when you write a comment or message and forget to notify people.

  • Comments

We now highlight any comments you have not seen in yellow

We also added in the ability to order the listing of comments either Ascending or Descending. While we were working on this, we also collapse long lists of comments and show the 3 most recent comments.

  • Privacy

We’ve added an Edit button into the Privacy hover widget so you can edit the privacy of an item from anywhere in the app.

  • Reply By Email

We’ve extended the reply-by-email functionality to match the user against their primary email address now to make sure the comment is added from the correct person in cases where they reply to someone else’s notification email.

We’ve been discussing this for some time but no firm decision made yet.
