Manual Time Entry in Mobile Version

4 comments

We just launched a very convenient feature for those who use time tracking on their mobile device. Time entry was possible using the time clock only, but from now on, you’ll be able to enter time manually, the same way as you can do it in AceProject.

This feature was frequently requested, as the time clock doesn’t fit everybody’s needs. Here’s a screenshot of manual time entry:

At this time, manual time entries cannot be edited once they’re saved. This will be a part of our time sheet revamp, which should happen in the long run. Read the Complete Post

iPhone App 1.1 – Instant Photo Upload to Tasks

If you’re an iPhone user and access AceProject via the native app, you’ll be delighted to hear about this new feature.

iPhone users can now take pictures and upload them as task documents. This feature also allows you to attach pictures from your iPhone library. Document upload wasn’t available before, but from now on, you’ll be able to use the power of your iPhone for contributing to your tasks!

Make sure you download the latest iPhone app 1.1 from the Apple Store, otherwise it won’t work. The iPad app will also come shortly. The app can be downloaded by clicking the badge below:

AceProject is now in Apple’s App Store

No comments

Today we are extremely proud to announce that we’ve made it to Apple’s App Store. After successfully launching the native Android app a few months ago, we have released the iOS 5 compatible AceProject app. This app acts as a gateway between Apple mobile devices (iTouch, iPhone, iPad) and AceProject`s mobile web app.

Benefits to this new app include:

  • Remain always connected without the need to continuously enter your login credentials.
  • In your email notifications, you’ll notice a mobile icon that will open your task directly into your native mobile app.
  • All the functionality that you currently find in your non-native mobile version.

Mobile Version 2012.02.01 – A New Menu, Global Search, and More…

5 comments

We decided to standardize AceProject Mobile’s menu and follow the trends in that regard. Lately, we’ve been noticing several mobile apps that brought up a new kind of collapsible menu at the upper left (Facebook is a well-known example). This menu usually acts as a dashboard that contains key actions in the application. We felt the need to add such a menu to AceProject Mobile, for ergonomy reasons.

Among other things, this menu includes the Global Search (which we added to AceProject in late 2011), the open projects (similar to the multi-project tabs in AceProject) and quick access to “My Preferences”. Read the Complete Post

AceProject Enters the Android Market

9 comments

It’s been one year since we launched our mobile web app. The number of mobile users increases every day, and although some features have yet to be added to the mobile app, the users are delighted by AceProject Mobile.

That being said, AceProject is a web app, not a native app. There is no store for web apps, but we found a way to enter the Android Market and reach Android users more easily.

Basically, we built a native Java Android app which empowers users to connect to AceProject in a more convenient way. Furthermore, this native app has a “remember me” behavior (just like Facebook, for instance). Read the Complete Post

1 comment

It’s been a while since we’ve worked on AceProject Mobile. Today, we are glad to announce 4 improvements :

1. The Time Clock can now be started from the dashboard. No need to open a project and a task anymore. Actually, choosing a project and a task will be done once you click the Time Clock on the dashboard.

2. Recent projects are available during the clock in process.  The corresponding drop-down shows recently-used projects.

3. Recent tasks are also available during the clock in process. The corresponding drop-down shows tasks you’ve recently clocked on and/or edited.

4. My Assigned Tasks and My Tasks to Review now show up as 2 separate items in the dashboard. Read the Complete Post

Version 2011.03.16 – Custom Hours for Task Assignments

1 comment

Custom hours can now be entered when assigning users to a task. Until now, it was only possible to either fully distribute the number of estimated hours to each assigned user or divide the number equally among the number of users. The former will no longer be an option and from now on, it will be possible to assign hours as follows:

  • Divide hours: The number of estimated hours for a task is allocated equally to all users assigned to it. So, if 5 users are assigned to a 5-hour task, they will be assigned 1 hour each.
  • Custom hours: This option empowers you to assign hours to users freely, regardless of the number of estimated hours.

1 comment

We received many comments following AceProject Mobile’s official launch last week and once again, we used them in a constructive way. First off, we have decided to make the main menu more dashboard-oriented. The new menu is more detailed and shows the number of items in each list. Here’s a screenshot:

The comments we received also helped us make the following changes:

  • A task can be deleted from the “Edit Task” page.
  • A task can be marked during creation.
  • When viewing a project, a task can be added to it from the toolbar at the top.
  • Most icons have been reworked.
