Introducing a new Mini plan, SSL enabled on the Mini and Basic plans, a new look for the calendar, the project activity feed, and milestone workflow improvements.
We are pleased to announce our August release of Intervals. We’ve deployed several exciting features and improvements, so log in to your Intervals account, or create a free 30 day trial, to see what’s new — or continue reading for more details.
The new Mini plan
Freelancers, consultants, and new small businesses will find the Mini plan is a great way to get started managing your time, tasks and projects online. The Mini plan is an affordable introduction to Intervals, and because our pricing is month-to-month, you can upgrade to other plans as your business grows. If you are looking to manage just a handful of projects, the Mini plan is a perfect fit at $9 a month.
SSL enabled on the Basic, Mini and Free plans
Great relationships are built on trust. We’ve spent the last several years building trusting relationships with our customers around the globe. Trust and security go hand-in-hand, so we take security seriously. In fact, we’ve entrusted over eight years of our own company data to Intervals — our entire history of projects, tasks, milestones, invoices and documents. SSL has been added to the Basic, Mini and Free plans for added security. It was an overdue enhancement and we are glad to have SSL across all plans now.
A new look for the home page calendar
Depending on your preferences, the home page calendar can have a lot going on. To help differentiate projects and tasks from milestones, and from notes, we undesigned the calendar. It’s a subtle design change with a noticeable impact. We have bigger plans ahead for the home page calendar. This small design change is just a step in a new direction.
The project activity feed
Wondering what’s been going on with a project? Need to catch up on recent project updates? The project activity feed, available to each project, provides a real-time list of recent project updates. Task updates, document uploads, time entries, milestone changes — every addition and update related to the project will be listed. With the use of Intervals project and time management software you can get caught up on project activity from any past day, or week. Whether you are out in the field or on vacation, you can get out of your inbox without missing out.
Milestone workflow improvements
Managing milestones can be overwhelming when you have too many tasks to choose from. So we’ve added task filters to the milestone editing page. The next time you need to create or edit a milestone, whittle down the list of available tasks by module, owner, assignee, status, priority, and so on, focusing only on those tasks that are being considered for the milestone. This improved workflow will help milestones come together faster while keeping your team on task.
These are just a few of the noteworthy updates for this release. Please feel free to send us any comments, questions, or criticism, by clicking on the “General question?” link at the bottom of any page from within your account. We’d love a shout-out.
