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.

Give me the data - 30.09.2019

💻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. 🛑

 

It's about Time - 27.08.2019

💻Timeline for project tasks

Now you can plan your project tasks in our new timeline. You can set dependencies between tasks, plan milestones and move tasks via drag & drop. This helps you to get an even better overview of your project's timing. ⏲

💻📱Improvements to the activity log

The activity log is now even faster than before. That means more productivity in less time. 💪

💻📱Invite users to tasks via emails

If you want to assign a user to a task, that is not yet part of your workspace, you can now do so. Just select "Invite by email" when assigning a user. The user will now be invited into your workspace. 📫

💻📱New Premium Trial

You can try awork's premium features 14 days for free now. More information here. ⭐

Amazing Stuff - 05.08.2019

💻 See project progress

The progress of your projects is now shown in the project details. You will see how many tasks are planned and done. We also show the planned effort for all tasks and times tracked against the planned value. 

With this change, you can't set a planned effort for a project anymore. The planned effort will now be the sum of the planned effort of all tasks in a project. Because of this, you can easily edit the planned effort in the task details now. 

💻 Presentation mode for boards

This mode just shows the most important information (task name, description, picture) on the board. This helps to get a much better overview in the board. 

💻 Number of tasks in collapsed lists 

Now you can easily see how many tasks are in each list to get a better overview of your big projects and long lists. 

📱 See project progress

The number of planned and done tasks is now shown in the project details when you pull down the task list.

📱 Tag other users in tasks/projects

Now you can tag users via the @ function in a task or project.

📱 Show done tasks

You now have the option to show done tasks in the project details

📱 Assign a task to your project team

If you assign a task to a user there are only members of the project team shown. This makes it easier and faster to choose the right user for a task. However, you can still search for all other users in your team space and assign the task to them. 

💻 📱 Easier password creation

awork now shows you how strong your password is (red, yellow, green). For your own security, you need to use a secure (green) password.

 

Team's Work - 13.05.2019

Create task views

Task Views give you the option to create individual view for you tasks via filters. That way you can e.g. bundle task from your team or customer hat are due this week in one single view. Of course there is the option to choose from many other filters. 

Work-Space-Time - 24.04.2019

Create Subtasks

You can now create subtasks in the task details. This should give you an even cleaner overview for your project tasks. 

New filters for Time-Tracking Reports

There are new filters for the Time-Tracking Reports. You can now filter if you only want to show "billed" or "billable" times.

Easier switching between projects

When switching between projects we always showed the project details. From now on we will keep the same view (lists, board or details) from the previos project when switchting projects in the project overview
