TeamLab New Version: Vast Opportunities For Your Business

Dear all,

As recently promised in our roadmap, this week we’ve launched a new version of TeamLab SaaS. The updates can be divided in two categories: changes in general settings and the Projects section.

Firstly, the Projects section has been essentially revised making navigation easier and faster. We’ve optimized the interface having removed the redundant information fields and added advanced filters.

The dashboard now includes three widgets: 1. the projects you participate in and follow 2. the milestones of the projects you work on 3. the discussions you take part in or follow.

All your projects, milestones, tasks, discussions are now displayed in single lists with the advanced filter option. You won’t have to search for a necessary item again and again. Once having set one or several necessary filters, the filtered result will remain the same for your next Internet session.

Speaking more precisely on the new style of the Projects module, there are the following changes:

Projects

The page on every project contains statistics on the number of milestones and tasks, discussions and files, the information on active and overdue tasks and milestones. You can determine the status of a project: active, paused or closed.

The filter option enables you to list projects by status, tags, a particular team member (you or your colleagues), a project manager (you or your colleagues), or choose to view the projects you follow.

Milestones

Every milestone has a person in charge. Using filter, you can search through milestones by status, due date, person in charge.

Tasks

Now you’re able to set subtasks and priority for a task, assign a task to several employees. The minor improvements include the new format for time tracking: hours/minutes, extended description field in tasks, the ability to remove attached files in tasks.

Tasks can be filtered by due date, person in charge, milestone, status (open or closed) and your personal tasks.

Discussions

Discussions are filtered by author, date, a particular project, projects you participate in or follow.

Time tracking

The time tracking has a new format as mentioned above: hours/minutes. You can get the necessary time-tracking info using filter by tasks, the group or person in charge.

Project templates

We’ve made the creation of project templates more convenient. Now you make a new template or edit it in one single page, saving your time and efforts. To create a project from a template, you also need to make just a few clicks, setting a manager, adding team members and assigning tasks on one page.

For you to understand and get used to the new interface, we’ve included the ability to switch between the new and old versions of the Projects module. Go to the Settings, General tab, scroll down till the section Portal version, choose New Version (6.5).

Secondly, now you get the opportunity to control access rights for every user not only in Projects and Documents but in CRM and Community as well. The new advanced permission settings include the ability to limit the number of portal users, who have access to this or that module. For example, your client or a partner can view Documents and Projects, while Community and CRM are not available for them. Besides, you can determine what actions every user can perform, choosing from the several levels of rights in each module. I.e., Peter can have the extended rights of an administrator in CRM, be an ordinary user in Projects and have no access to Community and Documents. The detailed description of difference between administrators and users in every section is below:

Community

User can create and edit his or her blog post, wiki-page, messages on forums, etc.

Administrator possesses all the user’s rights and also can edit any blog posts, wiki-pages, messages on forums.

CRM

User has rights to:

  • create and edit contacts, cases and opportunities, manage access rights to the listed items
  • edit contacts, cases and opportunities shared with them

In addition to all the user’s rights, administrator can also:

  • maintain bulk mailing
  • manage settings
  • import/export data
  • manage any contact, case and opportunity

Projects

Here the division of users’ roles contains more tiers:

User (who does not participate in any projects) has rights to:

  • view all the data in the open projects
  • create and edit his or her discussions and documents

Project team member has rights to:

  • view all the data in the open projects
  • create and edit his or her discussions, documents, tasks
  • assign tasks to other team members
  • set time tracking

Project manager has rights to:

  • perform all the activities that project team member can do
  • edit projects
  • add team members and manage their rights
  • create and edit milestones
  • edit any tasks, discussion, document, time tracking entries

Administrator has rights to:

  • perform all the activities that project manager can do
  • set project manager
  • create, edit and delete any project
  • create and edit projects templates

This way you get a full control of all the information every single user can view and all the actions he or she can make.

    Liking the re-design so far. The layout looks a lot cleaner, and I love that the Time Tracking is now in hours. Subtasks are also fantastic.

    One thing that would be helpful is in the Milestones page of a project, it would be great to be able to click the name of the milestone and have it go to the tasks page. Currently clicking the name only displays who created it and the date. Not a huge thing, but would be handy.

    Thanks for continuing development!

    Hi,

    The new version is nice with the ability to assign a task to more than one person, sub tasks and having high priority checkbox with task.

    But while creating a task, I can’t add any document as that functionality isn’t there in the pop-up screen.In the earlier version we could add the document. Now I have to create a task first then go to the respective task and add a document to the task.This is a bit tedious.I also liked the look & feel of the earlier version.

      I second this.
      Our clients are confused. They could upload the documents in the same action of creating the task.
      Its kind of anoying having to create the task, navegate to the Documents tab, to finally upload.

    1. Не понятно как получать уведомления о сроках по задачам. Подскажите где это можно настроить? В самой задаче галочка “Оповестить” активна только лишь при выборе участника проекта, а для самого администратора такой возможности нет. А она нужна.
    2. Нет возможности представления контактов в CRM по иерархии Компания-персона, а то получается они все вместе в одну кучу собраны – очень не удобно. Сортировка по типам контактов не работает…

    Thanks for the renovation!
    I’ve got one question. Previously on the main page (/projects/default.aspx) I could see widgets not only for discussions, projects, milestones but also a widget with the latest comments for discussions. Why have you excluded it from the widgets list? Is it possible to get this widget without moving back to the previous version? Viewing all the comments is very useful when you want to know the latest news and events.

    I love the changes and the ability to add subtasks. Can we have more than one priority added to the tasks though? Severity levels of something like 1, 2, 3, 4. 1 being complete work stop due to this task. 4 being nice to have.

    Also being able to list a task as something other than a task. Defect, feature, request, suggestion, etc.

    Having those two things would make teamlab the perfect solution for everything we need.

    Hi!
    The new changes are great!

    Your blog post mentions that all necessary time-tracking report are available. From what I can see, it seems the report module has not changed at all and it still lacks basic reporting functionality such as being able to create a simple report of how much hours were spent on a project for a given month, grouped by task and not by which user did the task. Missing such basic reporting capabilities makes billing very complicated. Is there any plan to work on the report module to make it more complete?

    Thanks for the great product!

      June 21, 2012 at 12:57 pm

      Daniel, sorry for misleading you. You’re completely right, the Reports section keeps to be the same.

    Добрый день.
    Было бы хорошо, если добавите счетчик в фильтры в CRM. Например задаешь фильтр – тип контакта “Теплый”, и счетчик показывает, что отфильтровано 34 контакта.

    Some nice improvements there, especially project pausing, sub tasks, minutes input and user permissions.

    However, it was already really difficult to submit your hours into the system and now it’s even harder.

    We work with multiple active projects at the same time. Previously, we used to write our working times into a text file and then manually calculate the hours and input them into correct projects once in a while. That’s because the timer thing was so poor and in order to input any hours manually you had to select the project first.

    Now it’s even more difficult:

    a) The possibility to submit the hours for a certain task and date without the timer has been removed

    b) The timer has been changed so that you can input the hours for any project, but you can’t set the date

    So, if you forget to submit the hours on the same day you did them, you first have to submit them with a wrong date and then you have to go to the time tracking page of each project and manually edit the date of each row you submitted in order to get the real dates. That’s not very elegant solution.

    Here is how to fix it:

    1. Add a small clock icon to the top of each page and make it a link that opens the timer.

    2. Add a date field to the timer (with an optional date picker).

    3. Add (optional) time span fields, so that the users don’t have to calculate all time spans manually.

    (Like this: I worked on this task from 12:36 to 16:49, which makes 16 – 12 = 4 and 49 – 36 = 13, thus 4 h 13 min, which makes 4 + 13 / 60 * 100 = 4.22 hours…)

    4. Display the latest submitted hours on the timer page (increase its size to the right) and add editing functionality into them.

    5. Add a page where the user can see all his/her own time entries at the same time (they should also be editable there).

    And when you have time, you could create a mobile app (or web page) that allows users to enter their hours in a same way as described, plus display and edit the latest time entries easily (in case they forgot what they have submitted).

    It’s very nice that you allowed trying the new version first and swithing back to the old version if needed. We had to switch back until this part is fixed (we use it the most).

      Agreed. Time Application needs Tweeking. For sure
      a there should be a basic Time sheet for the user.
      At the end of the day or say a week. go to a time sheet. Columns = Date, Project, Task, Subtask (time).
      User select the Date (from a MiniCal) Time (to and from) then select project (from drop down list) and Task, and sub task If applicable.
      This would be a single Entry Point.
      Our users complained that manually entering time is too complex.

    New version looks a lot better, few changes were maid that we have been looking for, through it still lacks a basic functionality many other projects management web-apps do have: a tree hierarchy of tasks/milestones/projects.
    To be precise, I mean a view like this:
    Project 1
    |- Milestone 1
    |- Task 1
    |- Task 2
    |- Milestone 2
    |- Task 1
    |- Task 2
    Project 2
    |- Milestone 1
    |- Task 1
    |- Task 2
    It really gives a lot of control over projects and tasks.

    Anyway, thanks for this great product!

    A team member did notice one thing: You cannot add time to a task for a previous date anymore. I checked and see that you CAN edit a time-tracking entry and change the date of that, but you cant create a time-tracking entry for yesterday. Some people like to put in hours for prious days. Is there a smart way to do this that we missed?

      Dear Peter, the ability to manually order tasks can not be combined with the filter option we’ve introduced. That’s why the manual sorting is not possible any more.Concerning the ability to enter time from the Task view, it’s still available. Just click the link “Start/Stop Timer”.

  24. June 21, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    I was hopeful the reporting functionality would see some movement. I sent the following email last month, to which I only received a canned answer. Any way of retrieving these basic reports?

    “We’ve hacked the URLs of existing reports to create a current/past month summary of all tasks with time spent on a particular project, such as https://######.teamlab.com/products/projects/reports.aspx?action=generate&reportType=8&ftime=prevmonth&fpid=######&fv=1

    What would be the best way to generate a report that would identify the user tasks in a particular time frame (currmonth, prevmonth) with the number of hours spent on each task and grouped by Project? It would be similar to the “User Tasks” report offered now, with the addition of the time filter and display of hours for each task.”

      Exactly.. my sentiments. I prefer that the reports – reporting function be available in the teamlab system.
      Love your comments. .. As I illistrated.. It is a basic business fundemental.,. To Budget time on a project, and to report the actual time spent against that budget. And show a variance YTD or Total to Date (i.e some project could span a calander year).
      In my world.. We will not hire a programming team, with out a detail programming scope, and Detail Hours/Dollars Budget. I do not believe in people working as if they have a blank cheq. Yes Project may change, but that is part of the Contract management, which would require a change order to the origanal contract.. To do that you must have details on the YTD Budget and YTD Actual time.. and a forcast on how much additional time is required to complete the job. So If Team lab is really for business- Then GET REAL.. and Team Lab Should Address this shortfall immediately.

    I actually liked the old version. The only thing that has stopped me from using it was the option to add customers on tasks. I do not see that on this upgrade either. It would be invaluable if i can add customers to certain tasks but they could not see any other portion of the project.

    If that function was there teamlab would be perfect.

    Hi,
    We use your service for some time. We noted that the accents are not displayed correctly on the interface. Would it be possible to correct this bug?
    Thanks !

    I hate to look a gift horse in the mouth. The new interface is much improved. However, I’d really like to see Task templates as well as project templates. Many tasks have the same sub-tasks and setting them up individually is repetitive. It would also be nice if there was a way to access comments on a task from the create new task popup instead of only the edit options…thanks for a great product guys!

    OLGA: Reports.. I find that to be a cornerstone of use.
    New version front end looking better. But from a business use point of view.. Use the system. online current information.. With a focus on planning.. Here is the project here are the task for users to work on.
    Thats like budgeting.. Now for actual ACTUAL TIME SPENT ON A TASK.. It is FUNDEMENTAL.. at the end of a given period. such as week , 2 week , 3 week or month.
    To have a report BY USER.. How much time was spent on each task? Like a weekly time sheet. Then for a project ,
    what was the total time budgeted for that project, and what is the YTD or total to date Time spent By task on this project. And by User.
    So the report would show all tasks all users on a project.. the time for the period (as per date selection. ) and the Total Time on the project.
    This is fundemental .. To look at time and cost control.. and to let a client know (whom the project is for) Where we are at.. completed 9 of 12 tasks and have spent 200 hours against a total time budget of 250 hours.
    What is the end result ? Don’t we need to Report to End CLIENTS??? OF COURSE that’s a basic business Function.
    So please address it.
    Further more te report should be exportable to Google docs as a spreadsheet, and or to MS Excel. (ie. Create file rather than print report ) Once in excel, we can allway print the report if we need to. Pray tell when will this be delivered or available??

    Несколько общих замечаний, если позволите:
    1. Сильно не хватает ленты, или как у вас это названо “Активности”, где можно было бы увидеть ВСЕ действия ВСЕХ пользователей, во ВСЕХ проектах, в которых я участвую, плюс в КРМ и в Сообществе, с возможностью фильтрации событий хотя бы по типу и времени.
    (например, сейчас, только через чат или мэйл можно узнать о новом комментарии к задаче.) В частности, все то, что валится в чат и почту по хорошему должно быть в Активности.
    2. Хорошо бы иметь функциональность События, Форумы, Фотографии, Закладки и Wiki также и в проектах.

    Вы, ребята. одна из немногих команд, которая не пытается сделать универсальный закрытый инструмент. И это здорово и комммерчески правильно, на мой взгляд. Это я об интеграции с google docs, box и dropbox. Ожидаем от вас и следующих шагов:
    1. возможность cоздавать документы гугл прямо из тимлаба
    2. возможность просматривать и редактировать документы гугул в родной среде, т.е. в гугле.
    3.возможность настраивать доступ к документам гугл из тимлаба (так же как у вас сделано для ваших родных документов).
    4. возможность добавлять в качестве ресурса не весь эккаунт, а, например, какую-то папку (коллекцию) в нем
    5. распространить эти возможности и на документы в проектах.
    6. ну и совсем мечты:-) возможность тимлаба понимать, что документ в ресурсе изменен, даже если он менялся средствами гугла и показывать версии и комментарии ,сделанные средствами ресурса… и о вас будут складывать легенды ))

      Илья, спасибо за Ваши пожелания, ответим по порядку: возможность редактировать документы гугл прямо из тимлаба в родной среде,т.е. в гугл не является нашей задачей, так как мы разрабатываем полноценный редактор, скорое обновление которого позволит понять, что TeamLab Document Editor не уступает, а во многом и превосходит существующие аналоги. А значит не в наших интересах искать замену для тех функций, которые есть в TeamLab. “Хорошо бы иметь функциональность События, Форумы, Фотографии, Закладки и Wiki также и в проектах.” – весь перечисленный функционал Вы уже сейчас можете использовать при работе над проектами. Насколько необходимо дублирование опций, вопрос спорный. Что касается ленты активности, то мы подумаем над реализацией Вашей просьбы. Напоминаем, Вы можете голосовать за внедрение определенных функций у нас в спец.форме здесь http://feedback.teamlab.com Еще раз благодарим за Ваши комментарии!

        Ольга, спасибо за ответ. Будущее стало яснее.
        Ждем… с надеждой, что ваш редактор будет не хуже гугловского.
        Использовать для работы над проектами функциональность из Сообщества можно, но возникают проблемы с разграничением доступа. Не совсем логично разрешать одну функциональность для компании в целом (Сообщество)и не давать доступа к ней для каждого из проектов в отдельности. На мой взгляд, здесь нет никакого дублирования. СООБЩЕСТВО – это просто ПРОЕКТ, в котором участвуют все.

    When do you plan to offer the paid server solution along with all the featured updates?

    We require ip restrictions for the portal and we want to allow the portal to be accessed from a few users from only within the organisation. Can you let us know if this is going to be possible anytime in near future.

    I am delighted to see,
    1. The subtasks
    2. Ability to edit tasks & sub-tasks without a new page load.

    What I still miss,
    1. I cannot add comments against a sub-task. Treat the sub-task similar to a main task. If I can’t add comments, its non-usable for me to track the progress sub-tasks.

    I like this update, especially the option to have admins with different rights! The function I really miss now is the option to sort the tasks after the milestones. It’s not bad that they aren’t automatically sorted after it, but a filter for that would be great! In our project, we have tasks like “article with the title ABC” and the name of the milestones is “end of correction”, “end of layout”. no way to see now what this task is about, correction or layout..? Perhaps we will work with subtasks next time, this option looks nice.

  36. June 26, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    There are great features on this update. Subtasks and assigning a project to different users will be really useful.
    However, there is an annoying change: if I want to enter manually the time spent on a project I must to do it on the popup and there is no way to choose a day of the month on this form.
    Also, I would like to point some other features that I miss:
    – A “project” column will be great on the tasks table in “All projects > Tasks”.
    – The button for task options seems like a “play” button. A down arrow is more representative for a sliding panel.

    Keep up the good work!

  37. June 26, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    I think the “NEW” version looks really, really nice!! It is definitely different and may take a little getting use to but I believe it will be an honest improvement. The people at TeamLab certainly put a lot of work into it and it shows!! Sure, it’s not everything to everyone but I still say it is the best thing out there – Without a Doubt!!

    I do have some voting to do on other people’s suggestions like a gant chart and improving the reporting function but even without these features, TeamLab is very useful and helpful. One additional feature I think would be “nice” is on the Projects Overview page. I like how I can see the description, the number of milestones, tasks and so on but what about the due date or current status? I have to go to another view to see that which I think is important info and should be on the overview page.

    Anyway, there’s my two cents! Thank You for all your work and the great product!!!

  38. June 26, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Жутко не хватает группировки проектов. Возможно просто не нашел как это сделать =) Тяжеловато, когда проектов все больше и больше. Хотелось бы разбить их на группы.
    И еще вопрос: хотелось бы планировать дату начала задачи, если даже это и есть то не нашел.

  39. Михаил - Reply

    И без того не очень удобный функционал учета рабочих часов по задачам, сделали еще менее удобным. Конечно, говорю за себя, но таймер – вещь не особо нужная, а вот чего не хватает, так это расчетного количества часов и анализа соответствующих данных в совокупности с фактическим исполнением. Зачем убрали подсказки сколько часов уже отработано, почему нельзя посмотреть часы по одной задаче или по вехе, а только все скопом.
    И самое главное – как тормозило все, так и тормозит.
    Не подумайте – проект очень интересный и я им пользуюсь с большим удовольствием, но учет рабочих часов – это один из основных для меня преимуществ TeamLab в бесплатных веб-решениях по учету проектов.

  40. June 27, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    Я начал использовать новую версию Тимлаба.
    Она на много лучше.
    Единственный недостаток в том что, когда ставишь задачи с неточным дедлайном, не возможно указать какая задача должна идти первой, а какая второй.

    К примеру, я знаю что, в июне у меня дедлайн по задаче А1(но точно не знаю какого числа), а в августе по задаче А2.

    Теперь когда я сортирую задачи, я не могу А2 поставить до А1, что нарушает мой порядок выстроения задач.

    только что поставил на свой сервер, возникли конечно затруднения. Работать захотел только с MySQL ODBC Connector версии 5.1.9 (какая по умолчанию в дистрибутиве) с последней версией почему то не стыковался.

    Overall, I am very happy with the changes you guys have made. The one area I feel like things have gone downhill is project templates.

    First, a bug: when I attempt to add a project from a template, clicking “create project” often doesn’t do anything (I’ve tried both in Firefox for Windows and Chrome for Mac).

    Also, I really miss the granularity of scheduling milestones by date in templates. I work on a lot of weekly projects, where I have a milestone every day. Having “0.5 months” be the smallest increment by default AND having lost the option to “move all milestones” means I have to go in and change each milestone’s date by hand every time.

    Thanks for your attention and the great service!

    Great to see this site. I’m just working with your great service.
    I’m experiencing a little problem, probably based on not knowing in depth about its usage… let me ask you:

    -I can’t see in this new version the Action Panel when I’m seeing a particular project. So, there is no way to activate the “Follow this project” any more. I’m the administrator of that project. is that the reason? If so… how can I re-subscribe to follow by email all the comments on projects, because before that I went to the subscribing section and clicked the Unsubscribe option for all my projects :)

    I hope you understand my inquiry.
    Thanks a lot, and continue with all this improvements. Great tool!

    Suggestion:

    Let me suggest to improve the Project template allowing the assigning of customized time frames different than the default “0.5 months” minimum period. It would be great to be able to configure these values as customized ones, (for example, allowing milestones with “days” durations).
    Thanks again.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However just imagine if you
    added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this
    site could certainly be one of the very best in its field.
    Excellent blog!
