We’ve snuck in a couple updates you might want to make use of, and there’s another one right around the corner. Here they are!
Add/Remove Employees Permission by Schedule
Before now, there was only one place to set the permission for employees to be added to or removed from a schedule in the app. That feature still exists, right here in Organization Settings:
Great news! The web app (often referred to as the back end) of CrewTracks is about to look a lot more beautiful. The features and functionality you’re used to are still there, so you’ll be able to keep using CrewTracks without a hitch. But just in case the new look surprises you, we thought we’d do some “old way / new way” comparisons to keep you on track.
By the way, this update is laying the groundwork for a huge new feature we’ll be announcing soon. But I’m getting ahead of myself – here are the areas that have been updated so far.
We’ve just released an update to our iOS app. There’s a lot to cover, so let’s get to it!
Minimum Lunch Time Setting
This setting can be found in Organization Settings, Crews, and Schedules. It allows you to set two thresholds: minimum lunch time and a minimum shift time. If enabled, a schedule cannot be submitted if users who work over the minimum shift time do not have a certain amount of lunch set.
Just a quick heads up…
Currently, you add photos to CrewTracks by opening the notes and photos section and then taking a picture. We’ve heard from a few companies recently who would like to be able to add photos to their schedule even if they didn’t have CrewTracks open when they took the photo. This feature has been released to our beta testers, and will soon be available for everyone! No need to break the habit of opening up your phone’s camera to snap a pic. Just take pictures like you always do, and you’ll be able to add them to CrewTracks later.
That’s it for now, but keep your eyes open for more features coming your way. Exciting stuff happening over here. : )
The October issue of Masonry includes an article entitled “Team Tracking Apps: TSheets and CrewTracks.” You can read the article online here. The response from this coverage by Masonrymagazine has been exciting. Since most our customers are builders, excavators, pavers, or civil contractors, we’re thrilled that word is getting out: CrewTracks is a great fit for masonry companies as well. The timing of Masonry‘s coverage (and our ad in the same magazine) is not a coincidence. We have recently rolled out two new features specifically designed for masonry companies, and the masonry industry is responding in a big way.
I’ve worked in B2B software for a while, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s this: there is no such thing as perfect software. CrewTracks is no exception. But here’s the good news: from the beginning, CrewTracks has been developed to solve actual pain points for actual people in actual companies who want exactly what we’re making.
So while we’re not perfect, we are closing the gap between CrewTracks and perfect every day. Today, I want to share just one example.
