This month, you’ve gained a shiny new Azure AD integration. We’ve also tweaked your Hours editor to make logging memories even easier, and added a few bonus access level controls. But first, a small present to hopefully brighten your day…
The global COVID-19 remote work experiment has brought new urgency to work visibility. For those of you using our automatic Memory app, this isn’t a problem; you already have a flawless private timeline of each work day. But if you’re subscribed to one of our smaller plans, you can only access a few days of Memory history.
That changes today — as of now, all our plans offer completely unlimited Memory history as standard. That means everyone can see everything they’ve ever worked on since first enabling Memory, regardless of their plan. Complete data, complete visibility. 🥂
Microsoft Azure AD users rejoice! You can now integrate your account with Timely to quickly add your organization to Timely and enable super-speedy single sign on (SSO). This will also sync your workspaces, so that any users you add or delete in Azure AD will automatically update in Timely.
Once you’ve completed the integration, your imported users will appear as “Pending” in Timely. They will be assigned “Employee” access level by default, and won't belong to any projects. You also won’t be charged for them until they sign into Timely for the first time — ensuring you only pay for those who actually need to use Timely.
Provided you’re an Azure AD admin, head to Settings > Integrations to set it up. As the Identity Provider for your Microsoft account, you’ll need to complete a few steps post-integration. We’ve broken these down for you here in the “SP (Service Provider) configuration” section.
Logging hours from your Memory Inbox just got easier! Whenever you drag memories to your Hours editor, they will now appear at the bottom of your entry — and you can quickly scroll through them to review what you’ve linked.
Dragging them across will also remove them from your “Unlogged” backlog, so you never log the same memory twice. With a clearer separation between logged and unlogged memories, it should also be easier to spot work that hasn’t yet been assigned to a project.
While we were at it, we also moved your project selector to the top of the editor, for easier quick-fire logging. 💥
Hot off the back of last month’s new user access levels, we’ve added a bonus control which lets you hide hourly rates for Managers:
Users with this check enabled will only see time budget value and progress for projects they are a part of; they won’t be able to see any money budget values or spend history, update money budgets or hourly rates, or create projects with money budgets.
The wait is over! You can now connect Timely with QuickBooks Online for accurate, effortless invoicing. As your most-requested feature we can’t wait to hear what you make of it! We’ve also snuck in some extra goodies this month, including a refreshed version of “planned time” from your Hours page.
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!
