Check out the new look in the Hubstaff web dashboard and mobile app.\nJob site notifications\nIf you’re managing field crews or mobile teams, you likely know the pain of having to stop working just to check in on your crews.\nDriving around from job site to job site is not the greatest use of your time. In fact, over half of managers spend an average of 11 hours each week traveling between job sites to check on their construction crews.\nBut, knowing where your team is throughout the day is crucial in order to make sure projects are getting done on time and as planned.\n\nThat’s where Job site notifications come in. Now, you can get alerts when your team members enter or exit a location you set.\nThis means you can:\n\nKeep working and get automatically notified\nAvoid worrying about team members — Hubstaff will let you know if they’re on-site or not\nAnswer client questions easily\n\nTo use this feature, turn it on in your job site settings.\nSpeaking of managing mobile teams…\nMobile map improvements\nHubstaff’s mobile app now shows you a map view with all of your team members, and lets you select individuals to learn more about their activity.\nNow you can:\n\nVisualize routes for the day\nSee where all of your team members are currently\nClick on a team member to see their past routes and more details\n\n\nWhen a client calls, you can quickly reference where your team is right from your mobile device. This also helps with route planning, and can cut down on the time you spend tracking down your team.\nJust like job site notifications, this feature gives you more insight into your team’s workday without having to drive all over town.\nA smarter way to track work hoursGet a clear view of how your team operates with Hubstaff’s GPS and geofencing features.\nCleaner setting dialogs\nSince so many of our features can be set on a per-user basis, being able to easily modify your settings is important.\nWith this update, it’s now easier to modify Member settings.\nEverything is available in one place and will be consistent across settings, so it’s easier to find exactly what you’re looking for.\n\nStay tuned for updates to your Project and Client settings, too.\nExpense tracking\nAnother crucial part of managing project budgets is tracking expenses. With this new feature, it’s easier than ever to keep an eye on costs in Hubstaff.\nYou can now:\n\nAdd expenses\nCategorize expenses\nAttach them to a certain project\nConnect to invoices\nView detailed reports on expenses\n\n\nWhen you create an invoice, you’re able to bring in those expenses you’ve added. The same goes for project budgets.\n\nWhat’s new in integrations? Quite a bit.\nNew! Zapier\nThis is a big one. You can now make Zaps using Hubstaff triggers and actions.\n\nBeing able to use Hubstaff and Zapier together means you can now connect a nearly unlimited number of apps.\nHere are a few examples to show you what we mean:\n\nThe possibilities are endless. Here are all the possible triggers and actions for Hubstaff. Keep in mind that this is just the beginning.\n\n\n\nTriggers\nActions\n\n\n\n\nNew project\nNew to-do\nTask completed\nNew client\nSchedule added, updated, or deleted\nShifts started late, early, abandoned, missed, or on time\nStarted timer\nStopped timer\n\n\n\n\nCreate project\nCreate to-do\nCreate client\n\n\n\n\n\nWhat Zaps will you create with Hubstaff? Let us know in the comments.\nComing soon! Slack\nWe continuously seek customer feedback so that we’re building the features and integrations that matter most to them.\nWe’re thrilled to announce our upcoming Slack integration for this reason. It’s a highly requested integration that we think is going to help teams stay in touch no matter where they are.\n\nHow it works:\n\nReceive real-time notifications when a team member starts working on a task\nGet notified when to-do items and tasks are marked complete\nCustomize which notifications to enable in Slack\nChoose which people or channels see these notifications\n\nIf you’re like us and are all about embracing transparency, these notifications can help keep teams up-to-date and notified as tasks are worked on and completed.\nThis integration offers real-time, accurate notifications that help teams work asynchronously and stay alerted to who is doing what.\nNew! ClickUp\nTime tracking and project management should always work well together. That’s what makes our new ClickUp integration so powerful for remote teams or those in office settings.\n\nUsing the two apps together allows you to:\n\nSync projects and tasks with Hubstaff\nHave tasks and projects show up in all of the Hubstaff time tracking apps\nTrack time directly to tasks or projects\nMark tasks complete in Hubstaff\nSee time logs as a comment within ClickUp\n\nAre you using a project management integration? Let us know which one in the comments, or what you want to see added next.\nAn update to Quickbooks Online\nA bit of good news for those of you using Quickbooks Online: Easier, faster syncing between apps.\n\nYou can now easily send timesheets and pay rates to Quickbooks Online, where you can issue payments or send invoices.\nWe’ve smoothed out the steps from tracking time to running payroll, so you don’t have to enter pay rates and time manually.\nHubstaff Tasks features\nDid you think that was everything? Buckle up, because we’re just getting started.\nHere’s what’s new in our Agile project management tool, Hubstaff Tasks.\nTimeline view\nManaging resources and balancing workloads can eat up a lot of your week. Especially if you’re manually tracking what everyone is working on.\nThe timeline view can help with this. Now you can visualize every task’s start and end date and view by team members or lists.\n\nHere’s a summary of how it works.\n\nWith timelines, you can:\n\nSee if due dates are conflicting or unattainable\nPredict how many people are needed to work on a project based on workloads\nMap out the timeframe to give clients more accurate delivery dates\nDrag and drop tasks to move them on the timeline\nView by person or project list\n\nPlease note: This is a premium feature of Hubstaff Tasks. See what else is included in a premium plan.\nRoadmaps\nTimelines let you see all tasks within the selected project. But with the new roadmap, you can get an organization-level view of all tasks, across all projects.\n\nThis gives you more oversight for better resource and project planning. Assess what’s on your plate and your team members’, and move tasks around as needed.\nYou’ll have the same functionality as you do with timelines, but with a broader view of your organization that makes for more thoughtful project management.\nVisual, Agile project managementGet access to Hubstaff Tasks’ premium features that help teams stay aligned and focused.\nRecurring tasks\nNearly every professional on the planet has a task they have to complete each month or week. And usually, you need to reference previous tasks while you’re working on the current one.\nRecurring tasks are the solution to this challenge.\n\nInstead of having to recreate time-consuming tasks, you can create it once and set it to auto-generate at the frequency you choose.\nEverything you put in the original task will be copied, including:\n\nFollowers\nDescription\nChecklists\n\nSave yourself time and work smarter with recurring tasks. What’s the first task you’re going to automate? Let us know in the comments.\nMy plan\nComing soon\nOne major hurdle to productive work is having so much to-do that you don’t know where to focus. On top of that, the feeling of not getting the work done that you wanted to can sap your drive and energy at the end of the day.\nTo combat this, some people will create separate to-do lists for that day only, so that at least those tasks get accomplished.\nThere’s now another way: using My plan in Hubstaff Tasks.\n\nThink of this feature as your starting point for the day. You can plan out what you’re going to get done, and be more efficient as you go.\nBuilding your to-do list in Hubstaff Tasks allows you to:\n\nCombine tasks, checklist items, and your personal to-do list\nSchedule these items\nCreate two lists: Today and Coming up\nPrioritize work and commit to what’s achievable for today\nAmaze yourself with how much you can accomplish in a day\n\nNotification center\nComing soon\nWhen you’re working quickly, it’s possible to miss an important update. Notifications can get overlooked, or they can be opened quickly and forgotten.\n\nThe notification center in Hubstaff Tasks allows you to:\n\nView all notifications in one place\nSee what’s new and keep notifications unread so you’re in control of what stays visible\nExpand beyond the ten initial notifications to view history\nCheck off the notifications you want to dismiss\n\nWhat do you think?\nIf you’ve made it this far, congratulations.
