Ready to throw your hands up for 2020 (doesn’t twenty-twenty sound awesome)? ?
We too! But first, let’s take a moment to do a recap of all this year’s updates and new features. At the end, we’ll give you a glimpse into what we’re planning for the next year.
Let’s go ?
The year of integrations
2019 was clearly the year of integrations. We made them more accessible under the Add-ons & Integrations area and launched 8 new ones: Slack, Google Calendar, Jotform, QuickBooks Online, Xero, LambdaTest, PomoDone, and Shift. All this so you can supercharge your productivity whether it’s about collaborating with your team, keeping your accounting in check, or getting feedback from your clients.
After participating at TheNextWeb Conference in Amsterdam, we realized we could power up Paymo even more. How? By partnering with complementary apps our paid customers could need and use.
So we launched the Apps Marketplace, featuring exclusive discounts for CRMs (Salesflare, Nutshell), Social Media (Socialinsider, Planable, Competitors.app), Design (Mockplus. Adobe), SEO (Wordlift), and HR (SoapBox) tools.
Most of you rely on repetitive tasks. This went beyond the scope of a project template, so we introduced the possibility to set a recurring profile for a task (on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis) and automate your workflow even more.
Gantt Chart export
Communicating with clients about project updates can feel like an eternal ping-pong game. We made it easier for you to inform them about the project progress by exporting the Gantt Chart as a PDF/PNG file. This visual format is more transparent and clear enough to be understood by both your clients (who pay for the project) and team (who executes it) at the same time.
Redesigned client, project, and user settings
Clients, project, and users are the building blocks in Paymo, each empowering their own specific modules. With a redesigned interface for each, we’ve facilitated the process of adding and viewing their settings in a straightforward way. Only actionable insights, no fluff.
New features and new look for Timesheets
The new experience is focused around easing the way in which you manually add time and monitor it, without any second guesses on who tracked what and when. This update also introduced a couple of new features.
Active Timers allows you to track all the current running timers in parallel for each of your team members, which makes it ideal for managing remote teams, while the Folded format compresses the empty slots between time entries for a compact view of the entire timesheet.
G2, the largest independent software review platform (formerly known as G2Crowd), announced Paymo as one of the best software companies in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). Paymo’s recognition among the best project management software companies is even greater considering the rankings are awarded based on the choices of real users.
Paymo is now fluent in 24 languages
We’ve updated all the available translations and added new ones that are more on the exotic side like Mandarin, Norwegian, Croatian, and Turkish.
This wraps up the major updates we’ve launched in 2019, which will serve as the foundation for what will come in 2020. Since we’re on the topic, here’s what to expect next:
- Improved client portal with in-app access to guest users
- Mobile app improvements (task management feature)
- Performance tweaks in terms of speed and stability
- Retainer projects
- Redesigned Unbilled AR area
- Calendar view for tasks
- Copy/edit tasks in bulk
- Personal projects + non-projects tasks
So stay tuned! ?
We wouldn’t have made it here without our users, so on behalf of all the Paymo team, here’s a big THANK YOU for all your support and timely feedback!
Wishing you a warm Merry Christmas and an awesome New Year!
