What’s new in Paymo: new mobile app version, Zapier integration and more

Here’s a list with some of the most important things we’ve been working on over the past weeks:

  • Zapier integration allows you to connect Paymo with hundreds of other apps you use, like QuickBooks Online, Slack or Xero. Check this link for the full list and integration details.
  • new mobile app version for iOS and Android (bug fixes + new features)
  • week numbers in timesheet month view:

  • redesigned discussions view:

Discussions

  • see how many completed tasks there are within each project in the Table Projects view
  • improved styling of data added via the “Add from timesheet” option on invoices
  • all the charts in the app can now be downloaded as png, jpg, svg, annotated or printed:

Annotate reports

  • “Agenda View” now has a calendar that allows you to easily select a date range:

Calendar in agenda

  • we’ve launched the spread the word about Paymo page, where you can find some of the ways to support us (and even get a small reward for the effort :). I would like to thank all those that have already helped us by spreading the word.
  • over 150+ refinements and small bug fixes.

We’re currently working on implementing advanced user permissions and adding fixed price budget for projects and tasks.

Yes, I am waiting for fixed price budger too, thx. And about Zapier? When I see this (You can do so much more with Paymo by connecting it to the other apps you use) I hope, I can connect my paymo account ,with calllog in mobile and track my call time with client and other future what i hoping for, is googlmaps connectinon, for better tracking my working roud trip. But it is not possible. That what is importent for me.

About Paymo/Zapier, I agree with Konopy.
So far, the possibilities are very limited.
Actions are limited to :
Create Project : Creates a new project.
Create Invoice : Creates a new invoice
Create Client : Creates a new client.
Create Task : Creates a new task.

And triggers are the same :
New Project : Triggers when a new project is created.
New Task : Triggers when a new task is created.
New Invoice : Triggers when a new invoice is created in Paymo.
New Client : Triggers when a new client is created in Paymo.

But yes there is nothing to handle time management.
So no way to create, start or finish a time entry.

Is this a planned feature ? 🙂

At the moment we don’t have time related actions/triggers but we’ll consider adding them in the future. Please contact us via the in-app system and give us details on what you’d like to do.

So is it now possible to add clients to discussions ?

Not yet, but in the following months you’ll be able to grant access to clients.

This is great news! Integrations are really really important! Actually, a summer trainee in our office is just working on a simple WordPress ticketing system that feeds to Paymo taks 🙂
I have on small request – is it possible to add the PDF url to invoice fields, communicated by Paymo to Zappier? This would be great as it would allow us to prepare invoices for accountants and auditors or simply store a backup copy of them in Dropbox, for example. I know, that the only difference between the invoice permalink and the PDF download link is the last parameter, so this should not be hard to do. Thanks in advance – awesome work!

Great updates. I’ve been using paymo for many projects and it just serve well. Would recommend to any small tech firms like us. One thing, please seriously consider to generate Gantt Chart for project management and progress review. Since you have all the data already, it is just way of new display.

Gantt Chart is on our to do list. We’ll start working on it soon.

Hi Jan,

Wondering if there was any update on Gantt charts integration with Paymo. I’m desperately waiting for it. Also, would love for task dependencies so I can say when a certain task depends on the completion of a different task.

Thanks! You guys rock!

Hi Ryan,
we’re fully focused on Gantt, it’s in development but i can’t commit to a date at the moment (it’s our highest priority at the moment).

Really hope it is coming soon because I switched from another software to paymoapp and really love it but totally miss gantt charts.

Keep working :))

Thank you guys!!

We’re on it!

Any update on the progress on Gantt Chart feature? Waiting for it to start using Paymo. Is it going to be both for project milestone planning and resource planning?
Thanks!

Jan Lukacs

Jan Lukacs

Hi John,
we’re nearing a public beta for Gantt, please signup for an account and get in touch with our support team to be notified for the private beta. Resource planning will be available by the end of the year.

I LOVE YOU HONEYS!

All the updates are useful.
BTW, what about an advanced notifications?
I believe there should be a “notifications” tab in a sidebar, which should list all the task/project/time updates.
When I open a project, I would like to see all time entries, comments, project info updates (eg: description is changed), all permissions updates (new user is added, etc), all edits. All the info should also be sortable. Do you have any plans for making this real?
Thanks!

Hi there,
no immediate plans in this direction at the moment. We will work on improving the Activity module for projects though.

I soooooo need this, too! Please reconsider offering this, it would make task management so much better. That and being able to set default rates at the client level, and task status (upcoming, active, in review, on hold, complete). Would love to see these features offered!

What about project filters?

We need a tags like functionality for the projects.

Sorry – no plans for tags at the moment.

Will you be adding iPhone 6 Plus support to the iOS app? It looks horrible and fuzzy 🙁

Jan Lukacs

Jan Lukacs

Hi Tom,
sorry about this, it’s an issue with the framework we’re using. Hopefully it will be fixed when we’ll switch versions (can’t commit to a date yet, sorry).

Kyle

What framework were you using? Just curious.

> Also – Gantt charts and expanded Client access is absolutely necessary.
> Pulling in files from services like Google Drive. Dropbox, etc. (with ability to create file folders for projects would be nice.
> And lastly for now – ability to bring on additional “team-members” into the system (for work that requires more devs /designers/etc.) without paying for extra user accounts.

Note: I apologize if some of this is already possible. Still testing out the waters. Thanks! 🙂
