We have introduced the Project Dashboard on the projects screen. And this is new: This view provides you with a summary of the progress of your project over the entire course of the project.
You can easily check the total hours incurred, start and deadline, hours used vs. planned, the status of recurring budgets, the tasks with the highest hour consumption and how much of it has already been billed or paid.
The project dashboard can be found on the projects screen in the action menu via secondary click on a project.
By popular request of our Tyme users we have introduced "Recurring Budgets".
For example, if you agreed on a time frame of 20 hours per month as part of a maintenance contract, you used to have to create a fresh project with that same budget every month.
From Tyme version 2023.3 onwards, recurring budgets can now be planned for projects or tasks on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis. As usual in hours or euros or another currency.
You can set a recurring budget in the "Edit" dialog of a project - via secondary click on a project.
Together with the release of iOS 16.1, Tyme adopts the shiny new feature Apple has to offer: Live Activities. Any running timers are now live on your lock screen. So you always have an instant view on how long a timer is already running, what task is active and how many hours you've already worked on that day.
With this version and the release of iOS 16, Tyme has integrated widgets for the lock screen. You now have an overview of your current working hours and running timers right on the lock screen. Tapping the widgets also works as quick access into the app. The widgets always show your times live. So all it takes is a quick glance at your iPhone to see how long you've been working today.
With this update it is finally possible to write or use plugins for Tyme. Using plugins you can export data from Tyme in any form or feed Tyme with data from other sources. The list of plugins is constantly being expanded and improved. Just have a look at Tyme > Settings > Plugins. If you have an idea for a plugin or want to develop one yourself, check out the Tyme Plugins page and let us know.
Time tracking is an important part of the workflow. Hours need to be recorded correctly for projects and tasks, invoices need to be created from the recorded times or the data needs to be transferred to other programs.
That's why we are happy to announce that Tyme will support plugins that allow data flows into or out of Tyme starting with the next release.
For the start we will provide some plugins and also plan to integrate new ones on a regular basis. As always, suggestions and ideas are welcome.
For those interested in the technology, there is already documentation (still under construction) for the plugins: https://github.com/tyme-app/plugins.
We've rewritten the PDF exporter and made it much more flexible. As a first new type of PDFs, there is now a Project Report. The Project Report gives you a detailed overview of a projects spent time, revenue and budget.
As always, if you have an idea or a suggestion, drop us an email.
