Summary of Recent New Features and Bug Fixes

Integration with Asana

We recently released an integration with Asana. This is a great project management tool that is free for up to 15 users. We use Asana within the Time Doctor team and really love it, especially how fast it is to use and how it is all organized into one page. You can check it out here Asana.com

Asana

The integration will take your tasks in Asana and display them in Time Doctor so that you can track time for these tasks. We recommend that you use Time Doctor pro to manage your integrations and we are also planning a significant interface and usability improvement for all integrations, however this will be available only with Time Doctor Pro. You can download Time Doctor Pro here

New Payroll Feature (Beta)

You may have noticed that we just launched a new payroll feature which is available in the menu. This feature will allow you to easily calculate the payroll for your team and also includes easy methods for you to integrate payment. We are starting with a PayPal integration and Ko Kard.

Ko Kard works only for payments made to the Philippines. We will be adding some other low cost payment methods in the future.

Here is a preview of the payroll settings page:

Allow Manual Time setting – How It Works

We are introducing a new “Allow manual time” setting which is a highly requested feature. This post is to explain how it works.

Admins can choose to set “allow manual time” on the manage users page

On the manage users page, admins have the option to allow manual time for each person in the company. Our recommendation is consider allowing manual time for most or all people in your company. Disallowing manual time should be only for people that work 100% of their time on their computer.

The manage users page looks like this:

allow manual time

What happens if manual time is allowed

If manual time is allowed then the person will be able to:

  • Use mobile apps to record time.
  • Use the edit time page to add or edit time.
  • If they are working on a task and they go away from their computer, their computer will pop up a message to ask if they were working when they come back. If they were working they can easily say yes or no.
  • All of this time is automatically approved HOWEVER an admin can always disapprove this time on the “Review manual time” page.
