2018-11-29 | Tempo Budgets for Server 12.0.0 Release

In Tempo Budgets for Server 12.0.0 we've improved the navigation by introducing the Tempo sidebar and we've also started moving Tempo configuration to a dedicated Tempo Settings page.


Note

Tempo Budgets 12.0.0 is compatible with Tempo Timesheets 9.0.0 and Tempo Planner 6.0.0. Earlier versions of Timesheets and Planner are NOT compatible with Tempo Budgets 12.0.0


At the bottom of the release notes you can view a detailed description of the changes occurring in Tempo Budgets 12.0.0, see Changes in Tempo Budgets 12.0.0.

  • New Features
    • We've made navigation improvements by introducing the Tempo sidebar and simplifying the Tempo drop-down menu to make it easier for users to find what they’re looking for. Now Tempo users have single click access to Tempo core features from everywhere in the product. This change also improves the performance of the UI. Your folios and portfolios can now be found under Budgets on the Tempo menu or in the Tempo sidebar.

    • We've also started to move Tempo configuration to a dedicated Tempo Settings page, making them more accessible to the people that need them. Budget users can now manage Team and Account configurations, as well as issue Expense categories from Tempo Settings, accessible via the new Tempo sidebar navigation


Changes in Tempo Budgets 12.0.0
