Ready for an adventure? We’ve got your back. Or rather, your feet. From now on – wherever you wander – Timely’s location tracker for mobile can show exactly where you’ve been and for how long. It’s launching on Android today and coming to iOS very shortly.
Creepy? Not really (only you can see this data). Helpful? You bet!
Capture time spent in different locations to get a more accurate picture of how long tasks actually take.
Like that client meeting; the invite said 30 minutes but you took 15 minutes to get there, it started 5 minutes late, and then overran by a further 10 (and let’s not forget the 15 minutes to get back). Like in in the meeting below. What do you want to bill?
Location tracking is a godsend for several situations:
The more context you have, the easier it is to quickly log hours.
The location tracker lives inside Memory, so it’s completely private to you and only you. To start tracking it, head on over to the Memory tab on Timely for Android.
Then tap Apps in the top right corner and toggle on “Track location”. Accept the following popups and you’re all done!
The tracker uses whatever’s available – GPS, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth – to pinpoint your location. Your movements will appear automagically in your Memory timeline.
So, enjoy! We’ll soon be adding other types of activities, like walking, running and using transport, so you get even more useful data all in one place.
Off you trot 🐐
Check out your latest Timely nuggets — including a brand new Zapier integration, increased tag customization, and UI optimizations to make automatic time tracking even more of a doddle. A HUGE “Thank you” from the whole team for helping us win a further 14 awards from G2 Crowd!
New year, new releases! We’ve started 2021 by bringing greater flexibility to Tags. You can now customize tag settings across all of your projects, ensuring people log project work using the right tags with minimal tag management and admin. Check out all of your January updates!
We’ve still got a few Timely goodies to squeeze into the end of the year — and they’re big’uns! In addition to static reports, you can now share live reports with clients so they always see the latest data. We’ve also created the ability to archive tags and capture idle time on Mac. See what’s new!
