Timeline Genius

[New Feature] Effortlessly Track Your Most Precious Resource

 

Timeline Genius now automatically tracks the time you spend working on your timelines — down to the minute!

So let’s say you’re talking to a client and you wanna know how much time you’ve billed working on her timeline… Or let’s say you just wanna monitor your team’s efficiency… Well, no sweat! Just glance at your new time tracking dashboard, and you’ll see the time spent on each timeline, broken out by team member.

And the cool thing is, this all happens for you automatically because the system is smart (dare I say, ‘Genius’) 😀 For example, if you stop working on a timeline (to open a different application, go make a sandwich, or whatever), Timeline Genius will detect that you stopped working and stop tracking time.

To see the new time tracking feature in action, just check out the video below!

We believe your time is an incredibly precious resource… Time is what you use to build your business… Time drives your profitability and work-life balance. Ultimately, time is the stuff life is made of, and that’s why we’re so focused on helping you save and manage it.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates coming soon, and keep shining like the rock stars you are!

We just rolled out another new feature for you!

You can now preview your timeline as any of your collaborators before you invite them!

As you know, Timeline Genius makes collaborating with your clients, venues, and vendors a piece of (wedding) cake. You can invite them to view and edit a timeline, and even hide any items you don’t want them to see.

So let’s say you want to invite your bride to view the timeline, but you need to make sure she can’t see the surprise her groom has planned… No sweat! In the Collaborate Tab you can select View As to view the timeline as if you’re the bride. Then you confirm that the surprise item is hidden, invite her to the timeline, and you’re all set!

With this handy new feature, you can know exactly what your collaborators will see before you give them access to the timeline.

Check out the tutorial video below to see the new feature in action.

 

We hope this new feature helps you collaborate with more confidence than ever.
