One of our key goals here at Tempo is to make time-tracking as effortless as possible. In the past few years we’ve developed a number of automation strategies, including the ability to integrate your Google and Office 365 calendars, as well as get activity suggestions linked to your Jira issues. All this is intended to make it much easier for you and your employees to understand and more proactively manage where you’re spending your time.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve advanced our automation engine even further in the past few months and are putting finishing touches on its design. Known as Activity Feed, this feature will track your activity in a range of places – from Jira to VS Code to your calendar – and provide you with smart recommendations about where you've spent your time. You can then log your activities in My Work with just a single click, creating time records simply and easily.
Excited by the sound of this? We'll be rolling out these changes to your instances in the coming weeks, so you won't have to wait too much longer. In the meantime, we will be making some changes to the UI to pave the way for this new feature. This includes the following updates:
Calendar view options
In the Calendar view, the time view will will become the Calendar tab and the list view will will become the List tab. There will be no changes to their functionality; they will simply have moved. Bookmark and Favorites URLs will not be affected by this change.
Date and total logged time
The weekly period will move to the left of the Calendar view. You will still be able to use the arrows to navigate through different weeks. The logged hours over total required hours (e.g., 25h/40h) will now be on the right.
The View dropdown will become the settings icon . Its dropdown menu will not change.
Again, all of these changes will pave the way for more significant feature changes in the weeks ahead. We look forward to unveiling them soon and getting your feedback.
