To add a bit more sparkle to your January 🎇, we’ve just launched a whole bunch of fancy stuff on our iOS time tracker.
You can now track all the time you spend on the move, wherever you wander, to get a complete picture of your working day. Location tracking lets you capture previously hidden billable hours spent on-the-go — like off-site client meetings and travelling for work — and gives you a precise log of all the hours you spend in the office each day.
It’s also great for tracking personal time. Perhaps you’ve made a New Year’s resolution to get more active or exercise for a set period every week? Our iOS tracker can show exactly how long you actually spend in the gym, and help you stick to your planned active time.
Location tracking is also pretty handy for seeing how much tasks overrun and for tracking active work for the more restless among us (think “walking meetings”). Or if you want to check if that client meeting went over time:
Just click the "Settings" tab at the bottom-right of your screen: switch-on “GPS Tracking”, accept the pop-ups and you’re ready to go! You can also toggle “Minimize battery use” if you’re running low on juice. Everything will still be tracked, but will take a bit longer to show up in your timeline.
Timely’s tracker uses iOS location and motion activity data to track your whereabouts, and all your data appears automagically in your Memory Timeline. You can push tracked locations directly to your timesheet from here: just select a location and tap “Create Entry”.
Quick, easy, lovely. And don’t sweat – all your logged movements are private to you alone. So, start the year on the right foot and go explore! 🎉
Your iOS Memory Timeline has blossomed 🌸. The new design massively simplifies timeline scanning and logging hours to your timesheet.
All the websites and apps you use now appear under icons in your timeline, giving you a clear visual overview of what you’ve been doing. When you go to push an activity to your timesheet, you’ll find the 5-minute snapper rounds much more accurately. The only information visible in your public timesheet will be the recorded time and notes you choose to include.
Improving clarity was super important for us, since we realize you need to quickly select and log activities without accidentally pushing public any sensitive data from your private timeline. The new design makes this a whole lot safer and quicker to process.
Psst, have you logged your hours for today? Due to popular demand, we’ve created nudges to make sure everything is in its right place before you log off for the day. You’ll never forget to log your hours ever again.
You can now get friendly reminders to log outstanding hours from the previous working day. Just click “Settings” in your bottom menu and switch on “Allow push notifications”. From there, select the days and time you want to receive reminders, and relax 🍸 — we’ve got your back.
There’s absolutely loads to play with — have fun and let us know what you think! 😊
June has been a pretty special month. We’ve just closed a mammoth funding round and landed new G2 awards. Neither could have happened without your ongoing support, feedback, and faith. From the entire Timely team: thank you!! 🙏🏼
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!
