Home is where your dashboard is - 19.02.2020

💻 Customize your dashboard

You can now configure your dashboard to your liking. We also added some new widgets that should make you even more productive.

💻 Microsoft Teams Integration

It's finally here ... almost - as soon as Microsoft approves our App in the Teams store you can integrate Teams with awork.

💻 Group (Kanban-) boards by list and user

You can now group your boards by list and user. This will help to get a better overview for your tasks.

Until now all tasks were grouped by project in our mobile app. From now on you can group them the way you like, e.g. by due date. 

💻 Install awork as a web app

Chrome und Edge now recognize awork as a web app. Because of this you can install them directly from your browser on your PC or Mac.


New Year’s polishing for a shiny, sparkling 2020 - 14.01.2019

💻 Rework for project types

It's now easier to set up new project types. We move the project roles from project types to the permission management. Now all roles will automatically be available for all project types. Furthermore project statuses are now set for every project type and will not be shared anymore. We also reworked the interface for a better usability.  

📱 Darkmode for mobile app

The darkmode is now available for our mobile app, too.

💻 Grouping and sorting for tasks in task views 

You can now group and sort tasks in task views, as you can do in my tasks

  • My Time Tracking: You can now duplicate time tracking entries.
  • Slack-Integration: The name of the linked project is now shown in the projects details.
  • We now save your last tab (details, tasks, times) for every project.

Christmas Presents - 12.12.2019

💻 Team Planner (Premium-Plan)

The Team Planner is the Timeline that shows all your projects. But there is also a second view that shows you the Timeline order by team members so that you can get the perfect overview of what everyone in your team is doing.

💻 Billing Integration (Premium-Plan)

You can now create invoices directly from awork with our new Billing Integration. The integration works with the following tools:

💻 Guest Access

You can now invite guests into your workspace. A guest can only be assigned to one project but will only take up 1/3 of a normal license. So you can invite 1 full user or 3 guests per license. 

💻 Recurring Tasks

You can now repeat tasks. That will help to keep track of your recurring tasks.

💻 Grouping and Ordering in My Tasks

You can now group and order task lists in the My Tasks view. 

💻 Darkmode

With the cold and dark time of the year awork changes its colors, too. You now have the option to activate dark mode in awork. 

💻 / 📱 Use own Icons for Tasks Status

To get a better overview of your tasks you can now set custom task status icons. There is also a new color (purple) for the status type In Review.

💻 / 📱 Changes in the Permissions for Project Times

If a user has no permission for project times or user times they will not be able to see aggregated times for projects and tasks. This will be helpful if you invite your clients into your workspace with the new guest access. 

💻 Project deadline can now be edited inline

That means you don't need to open the edit modal anymore. 

Time is Money - 07.11.2019

💻 New Time Reports (Premium-Plan)

We built new time reports. You can now use a multitude of filter and grouping options. Furthermore you can now export your data as pdf to get a better integration with your billing process. 

The feature will be available for premium-plans only. But we will activate it for all free-users for the first 14 days, to give you the option to try the new time reports. 

💻 New Slack Integration

We updated our slack integration. Before, you could only show information from awork in a single slack channel. While you can still do that, you now have the option to link projects to slack channels and create / edit / comment on tasks directly from slack.

It is possible that the update of the slack integration will not be immediately available on 07.11.19, because of pending approval by Slack. 

💻 New Permission Management

We completely redesigned our permission management to make it easier to understand. Furthermore, we added presets for the user roles, so that you don't need to go into all the details anymore. 

💻 New Settings in the User Profile

The settings in your user profile are now cleaner than ever. On top of that, you can now deactivate timers globally for your account if you don't want to use time tracking in awork.  

💻 Task Lists: Create Tasks at Any Position

Until now, new tasks were created at the end of task lists. Now you have the option to add tasks at any position within a task list

💻 Start dates for Tasks in Task Bundles 

You can now set start dates for tasks in task bundles. If you set a start date and a due date, the task will show up in the timeline upon creation. 

💻 New Zaps in our Zapier Integration

You can now create clients via the Zapier integration. This gives you the option to better integrate awork in to your CRM tool. 

💻 Limit of 10 free Projects (Free-Plan)

You still can earn free projects in the free-plan by recommending awork to new users. But there is now a final limit of 10 projects in every free workspace. 

💻 / 📱 Projects can't be deleted anymore (Free-Plan)

From now on, you can't delete projects in the free plan anymore. If you are using a premium-plan you can of course still delete projects whenever you wish.

💻Data Importer

The new importer helps you to migrate your projects and tasks in to your awork workspace from whatever tool you used before. 📥

💻Content Bundles

Creating projects is now easier than even. You can select and import pre-defined tasks bundles right into your workspace from our new content bundle library. Of course our library will grow even further over time. 📦

💻UI Update Task Bundles

The task bundle settings now look way nicer and are more in touch with the rest of the UI. 🔥

💻View persistence for project tasks

awork now remembers the last selected view (list, board or timeline) for each project. This will help you to get faster where you want to go. 🧐

💻Archive Tasks Lists

If you have projects with many different tasks lists you can now archive tasks lists where no tasks are left to be done. This will help you to better keep track of your project tasks. 🧳

💻Task Lists visibility

We now show the task list in the task details and in the board view. 👍

💻Projects shown in tasks lists

If tasks are assigned to a project we now show the name of the project in tasks lists, e.g. in task widget on your dashboard or within the task views. 😎

💻Add tags when creating projects

You can now assign tags to project in the creation process. This makes it even easier to categorize your projects. 🏴

💻New date selector

The new date selector looks better than ever and got some nice usability improvements. 🕖

📱New Onboarding Experience

If you sign up via our app there is now a new onboarding experience, that gives you the option to personalize your workspace more than before. 💡

💻📱Permission Update

Project permissions include now a "create" permission. You can now allow users to create project without granting managing permissions for all projects. To make this work the project creator will have manage permissions for every project they create - no matter what project or user role applies. 🛑
