Enhancements to My Week
Starting the timer on a piece of work from within My Week will automatically move it into 'Working on Now' to make it easier for your team to see what you're working on, so they can plan effectively.
We have also increased pagination to 100 items, so you can see more information on your screen at one time.
Updates based on feedback directly from Karbon Community
We’ve added additional functionality from feedback received by our customers via Karbon Community, specifically to contacts, work, and Time & Budgets that will make the smallest things just that much easier.
UK customers can now choose Unincorporated Charity and Housing Association as entity types in Organisations > Details > Accounting Details
When creating a new contact, we’ve added a field for ‘client identifier’ for those accounting firms requiring that rigor. To enable this, simply speak to your Customer Success Manager or our Support team (firstname.lastname@example.org). Once the field is enabled in Settings, every time a new contact is created, the field will need to be populated before the contact can be saved.
Phone numbers on contacts are now clickable directly from the contact card, saving you an extra click to access the information you need.
When exporting data, ‘work type’ was previously only available in the ‘All work in this view’ option in the export menu. Thanks to customer feedback, it’s available in the ‘Repeating work schedules’ option too.
You were already able to ‘copy a conversation link’ in email and tasks, but now we have taken it one step further and added that functionality to notes.
You’ll notice that the task overflow action menu has been reordered in-line with how our customers work, with the goal to improve workflow.
Time & Budget
The character limit for time entry notes has increased from 300 to 600. Plus, a snippet of your note will now display, rather than the entire entry, saving space on your screen. To read the rest of the snippet, you can click the ellipsis (...).
Karbon now remembers the previous task type selected in the time entry modal and timer regardless of where you are in Karbon.
The work item ID is now a downloadable field and has been added to timesheets. When you export the data, the column will be identified as ‘Work ID’.
Coming next week: Calendar
My Week’s two-way calendar integration with Google, Outlook, or Exchange calendars
My Week just got more powerful. Stay focused and plan your today, tomorrow and beyond with oversight into your work with a calendar integration right in Karbon.
Recent API enhancements
Work item: Type and Status
New search filters for work type and status allow you to focus on exactly the data you want to see in large sets of work items by retrieving matches to your criteria, so there is no need to re-filter.
Previously, search included only exact matches, but now it’s faster to search in contacts: Start typing three letters and Karbon will return a list of partial matches for full name, email address or phone number, making it easier to find the information in a hurry.
For other API releases see the Karbon Developer Center
To the comments! What are you most excited for here? And don’t say Calendar because there’s plenty of time to talk about that next week ;)
