New Updates | Release 20 Summary

Release 20 | September 8th, 2021

Easily create repeatable plans and maintain uniform project structure with our brand new Templates and Duplicate features. Track your team’s progress on those plans in Timesheet Review. Export Timesheets for further data analysis or to share time tracking data with your accounting team. In this release, our featured improvements are Templates, Duplicate, and Timesheet Export.

Templates

Maintain uniform project structure and create repeatable plans with our new Templates feature. Templates are managed in the new Templates Collection. To start planning with Templates, navigate to the Projects tab and click All at the upper-left corner in the breadcrumb trail. 

  • Build a new template by adding a project folder to one of the sample packages & add or import tasks to the project. 
  • Configure the project template’s dashboard to save even more time down the road – all projects created from the template will have the same customized dashboard configuration as the project template.
