🔥 We’ve just released a simple data import for Toggl and Harvest, allowing you to migrate any existing users, projects, clients and tags to Timely in a matter of seconds. We’ve also refined user access roles to give you more control when delegating Timely management to your team. Naturally, we’ve snuck in a little UI and mobile shine too. Check out what’s new!
Switching to a new time tracking tool can be a painful, arduous process. To make the whole thing easier (and much quicker!), we’ve built a direct import for the two biggest tools Timely users jump ship from: Toggl and Harvest.
Instead of wasting time and effort cloning data and recreating identical team structures in Timely, you can move it all across in a matter of seconds. Import all projects, users, clients and tags in one swift movement. Providing you’re an Admin, just head to Settings > Integrations in Timely to make the import.
Everyone on your Harvest or Toggl account will be imported into Timely as an “Unassigned” user (even dormant past employees). When you’re ready, just invite the ones you actively need. Once they activate their Timely account, they will occupy a paid seat on your plan.
To help tailor Timely to your unique set-up, we've released some exciting changes to user access levels. You can now assign Admins, Managers and Employees. Aside from making roles clearer, the biggest benefit relates to more selective delegation of powers. Here’s a breakdown of what these levels mean:
They can see and manage everything on your workspace*. Any “Normal” user with admin rights option enabled will be assigned this access level.
Previously called “Normal”. They can see, log and edit hours for anyone on the same project as them – as well as create new projects.
Previously called “Limited”. They can only see, log and edit their own hours.
Get the full rights breakdown for each level here. A ton of you have been requesting the new Manager access level in particular, and now have the ability to quickly give people editing rights without granting them full access to all your workspace data.
We’re constantly releasing small polishes to improve usability and UI across all our apps. Here are just a few highlights to savor this month:
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!
