For the first time we are actually bringing back a feature. We had email reminders – automatic emails that remind users to enter time – when we first launched. However, we did a rush job and it was truly only half complete. For example, all reminders were sent at 3 p.m. eastern time. We turned email reminders off temporarily while we improved it.
Now email reminders can be set by your account administrator. Administrators can select the day and the hour the emails will go out. And of course the time will take into account your timezone setting and whether or not you entered time that day. Users will not receive the reminder if they entered time that day. Users will also have the ability to opt out of receiving the email. The last thing we want is to spam our users.
Email reminders are off by default, so an administrator will have to enable the feature. To make notification changes, click Settings then click Notifications.
Don’t forget to enter your time.
It just got easier to create projects. Starting today you can create a project from an existing project with the new copy project feature. The copy project feature allows you to copy project data to either a new project or an existing. Copying to a new project will copy the name (prefixed with “Copy:”) along with basic project information. You have the option of copying over the people assigned as well as the tasks. It is entirely up to you. Only copy what you need. When copying to an existing project, you have the option of copying the people, tasks, or both.
Administrators will find the Copy link above a project’s overview section. Click Settings then Projects. Then click the name of the project you wish to copy. The copy button will be at the top.
- Only administrators can copy projects.
- Copies can be made to a new project or an existing project.
- Administrators can decide what they specifically want to copy (ex. people and tasks).
If you create a lot of projects, expect this to save you a great deal of time. Happy copying and be sure to show us you like this enhancement by clicking one of the social sharing buttons below.
