Upcoming changes

Upcoming changes

This update focused on many small detail improvements to make your daily workflow smoother.

One big new feature stands out in this update: the form for recording weekly working hours.

Recording weekly working hours

All users will see the new menu item "Weekly working hours". With the help of this form, you will be able to record the working hours of an entire week within a very short time. It should be noted here that the start time of each entry will be the same and the form is primarily intended to make recording easier for certain user groups and/or to make life easier for companies that already record only the duration of work (but not the time).

If you do not want to use this form, please revoke the permission weekly_own_timesheet for the corresponding user roles (at least "User"). If you have question about this, please contact the support.

You can find the full documentation of this function here.

Further changes

In addition to several improvements and bug fixes, the following points have been changed:

  • User-dependent configuration for switching between 12 and 24 hours format
  • Customized form for new user creation (new: team and role selection)
  • Improved workflow for invoice creation and template selection
  • Invoices can now have the status "Canceled"
  • Improved file name for exports (search parameters: Customer / Project / User are supported if max. 1 is selected in each case)
  • PDF documents (exports & invoices) can now be over 50 pages long
  • Update of all translations
  • Paying customers can now use custom invoice templates. The upload is possible in the formats Word (DOCX), OpenOffice (ODS) and Excel (XLSX). Twig and PDF templates must still be imported via support for security reasons.
  • Paying customers can define their own custom CSS rules

A complete list of all changes can be found here.

23.04.2021

This might lead to short outtakes, which we try to keep to a minimum.

If you encounter any issue, please contact the support!

16.02.2021

In the 7 week of 2021, between 15. - 21. of February, all cloud instances will be updated to the latest Kimai version.

Your clouds might be in maintenance mode for around 1 minute during the update. In case of any question or problem, please contact our support.

Upcoming changes

Below are some of the highlights of the new version:

Timesheet tracking form

New configurations available for the "duration selector" and "start and end date minute dropdown":

Configuration values to influence timesheet dropdowns

Default setting is to match your rounding rules. So when you have a rounding rule, that rounds the "duration" to 15 minutes you will see the new duration dropdown:

The new duration select dropdown

If your rounding rule keep "From" and "To" as they are, you can still configure the minute selector to show ten minute steps for "From" and "To" (see first screenshot) and you will get a shorter dropdown::

Minute selects support steps as well

As additional improvement, the duration field now accepts more formats and can interpret decimal as well.

For entering 90 minutes you can now type 1:30, 01:30, 1,5, 1.5, 1h30m or 90m ... or you simply select it from the dropdown!

Prevent modals from closing accidentally

Previously clicking outside a modal always closed it and you could easily loose all your changes. Now all forms that are changed, cause the modal to display a warning message when you clicked outside of it, and the modal can only be closed by using the "Save" or "Close" button.

The message appears at the top of form, below the modals title: Warning message prevents that changed forms will be accidentally closed

Reassign timesheets

Allows reassigning of timesheet records from "delete user" dialog, so historical data can be moved to a backup account upon user deletion:

Reassign timesheets when deleting account

List actions for last items

The action dropdown in long lists were partially hidden for the last items in the list, if the action menu was rather long. These menus now appear as "drop-ups" and all entries can be selected:

List actions appear as drop-up

Lockdown configuration

The timesheet lockdown period is somewhat complicated to configure, if you are unfamiliar with the "PHP DateTime "syntax. To help with the configuration, the calculated results of your settings will now be shown:

Rendered lockdown configuration values

Invoices

The invoice template "Single service date" (formerly called "Freelancer") was converted to produce a PDF version (was: HTML). PDF invoices have many benefits over HTML, like proper header and footer placement, immutability for legal reasons, they can be shared easily with your clients and more.

Translations

New languages "German (Austrian)" and "Portuguese" were added. Austrian matches german by now in most cases, but has some translations for the calendar.

Updated translations for Spanish, Polish, Hungarian, Chinese, Hebrew, French, Turkish, Slovak, Portuguese & Portuguese Brazil, Czech, Esperanto, Dutch, Romanian, Russian, Arabic, French, Polish and Korean.

Further changes

In addition to several improvements and bug fixes, the following points have been changed:

  • Expenses are now included in global export module
  • Sorted teams alphabetically
  • Height for dashboard widgets (teams and projects) is now limited and clicks on rows open detail pages

A complete list of all changes can be found here and here.

06.11.2020

Over the weekend of 7-8 November 2020, all cloud instances will be updated to the latest Kimai version. The cloud currently runs on Kimai 1.9 and will be upgraded to Kimai 1.11.

To my great delight, new users are joining every day to use the Kimai cloud. However, this organic growth now requires upgrades to some of the used services.

There will be some some short downtimes during these updates, as some upgrades need to be performed on the cloud servers which are not possible during live operation. These downtimes will happen during the evening hours (Central European Time).

In case of any question or problem, please contact our support.

Upcoming changes

Here is a list of the most important changes, that you can look out for:

  • The long awaited “reporting screen” with the first reports for: user weekly times, user monthly times, all user monthly times, my tasks, team tasks
  • Basic exports of: users, customers, projects, activities
  • Drag & Drop for calendar
  • Team permissions for activities
  • Configurable first day of the week
  • New translations for: Vietnamese, Hebrew, Romanian, Finnish
