🔧 Timesheets and Automation Improvements

A while back, we made some small improvements to timesheets and automations. These improvements were made based on feedback from our users, so they’ll definitely boost the productivity of your day-to-day operations.

📑 Timesheets became more insightful

We added a new field to timesheets — Projects. Now you can see to which project the task belongs. It will help you understand not only how long it takes to finish a certain task but also how much time was spent on tasks for a certain project. 

🧩 Editable custom values in automations

Formerly, you had to change custom fields manually for automatically created tasks and projects. We made this feature more user-friendly and less time-consuming, so from now, you can set custom values for tasks and projects directly while creating a new automation rule. Values will be linked to all tasks or projects created from this automation.

👀 Small updates for project portfolios and task workflows 

Today, we have two small improvements for you 💁‍♀️

The first improvement was made for recently released project portfolios, while the second was to easily link task workflows for new tasks and projects. 

Ready to have a closer look at what's been done? 😉

1) To easily monitor the finances of your projects inside the portfolio, we added a few filters. From now on, you can observe the finances of targeted projects:

  • Active
  • Closed
  • Successfully closed
  • Failed
  • Paused

To learn more about how to observe finances inside portfolios, explore our knowledge base.

2) Tired of swiping to find the necessary workflow for a task? It’s not a problem anymore, because now you can drag and drop task workflows in the list to easily organize them. 

We also added a feature to set the workflow as the default. The default workflow will be automatically linked to new tasks and projects. If you set the default task workflow for a project, all the tasks inside the project will be linked to this workflow.

All the important information about the task workflow updates is already in our knowledge base.

⚙️ Minor automation and task improvements

  While our devs are preparing some big and important updates for you, we can still amaze you with small but mighty improvements.

1. New field types for the "Field Update" rule in Task and Opportunity Automations.

Recently, we added a feature to automatically link the assignee and task owner. Now, we've updated this feature with two new actions:

  • Who created the task — Owner
  • Who changed the task — Modified by

Use case: Once the task reaches a new stage, the assignee changes to the teammate who created the task. It’s a perfect case when you need to pay an invoice. Your manager creates a task for an account to send payment. Once the payment is completed and the task moves to another stage, the manager from the first step becomes an assignee again to fill in the report of service completion.

2. New field types to add or replace participants and followers in the Task and Opportunity Automation.

  • If the field type contains "add", you can automatically add a new participant or follower to the task or opportunity once it reaches a new stage.
  • If the field type contains "replace", you can automatically select a new option to replace the old one. For example, change the previous follower to the new one once the task is completed.

To learn more about "Field Update" automation, explore our knowledge base.

3. Link a task to the list directly from the task’s main page.

Formerly, you could link a task to the list from the task settings. But recently, we added this option to the right menu of the task, so you can easily select the list from the drop-down menu.

🎉 Flowlu Updates: Last Activity and Date in Opportunities, Comment Filters, Extrnal-to-Internal Converting and Even More!

Before releasing some brand-new features, we want to pamper you with some small but mighty updates.

Ready to dive in?    

  • We had a lot of requests to make the estimated time settings more reachable. You asked, and we delivered! From now on, you can establish an estimated time without going into editor mode. Just click the time tracker icon in the task and fill in the estimated time. 
  • Today's must-have is the last activity and the last activity date in the opportunities’ list. If you want to check when the last email, call, or meeting with a client was, simply go to the list of opportunities and add these columns in the list settings.
  • Even Flowlu knows that a good freelancer can become a part of your team, that’s why we added external-to-internal user converting. If you want an external user to become a part of your team, click the Make an internal user button in the user's profile.
  • To avoid unnecessary micromanagement, we’ve added a new automation type for the "Field Update" action in the task workflows - change assignee. It means that you can simply update the assignee field in the task at a specific workflow stage, so you won’t need to reassign the task.
  • Activivties on the CRM and projects are a total mess? Don’t worry, because we added filters to the activity section in Projects and CRM Opportunities/Accounts. With brand-new filters, you can organize information based on your needs and navigate through massive amounts of data with ease.
