We’re building a new breed of planning tool powered by automatic time tracking—and after months of tinkering and testing, we’re ready to release the first instalment! 🔥 We’ve also made some major improvements to visuals and performance across our web and desktop apps, as well as furnishing our mobile apps with new tag controls.
We’re extremely excited to announce the first instalment of advanced planning powers in Timely. Tasks is your team hub for managing work, acting as a layer between projects and individual schedules. It enables you to assign, plan and track real-time progress against big deliverables. Here’s a whistle-stop tour of what you can do with it.
With Tasks, you can build and action a prioritized to-do list directly inside of Timely. Simply drag and drop tasks to your personal calendar to plan your schedule or log time for specific project work.
Planning and logging time to a task will update your task progress bar, allowing your team to follow the status of work without interrupting you.
From the “Tasks” tab in your Projects and People pages, you can dive deeper into the detail—managing and reviewing all tasks for a specific project or person. Timely will also flag whether each task is progressing as planned or set to fall behind schedule.
Tasks is the first step towards robust project and workforce planning in Timely and is available as an add-on to your Timely subscription. As an early adopter, you can add Tasks for as little as $2/month per person and gain lifetime access to all future planning releases at no additional cost.

Both iOS and Android now allow you to customize tags by project, giving you fine-grained control of exactly how you want different project work to be reported across your workspace.
We’ve also cleaned up the UI for managing tags on Android—updating visuals and removing unnecessary interactions—making it much quicker to organize your workspace.
