We're back with a small treasure chest of product updates and fixes to keep your team working smoothly in Accelo - and across the tools we connect with, such as Gmail, JIRA and QuickBooks. There's also a good chunk of updates to our Android Mobile App!
Over the last 2 weeks we contacted users who integrate Accelo with their Gmail, regarding some essential maintenance which impacted our ability to connect with Gmail. If you didn't see the note from us, here's a quick recap.
If you're logging time in Accelo, there's a good chance you've already seen this update:
So just to make it official - yep, you can finally see when you had personal leave, public holidays or other vacation time scheduled, as you are reviewing your weekly or daily timesheet screen. This can help you explain missing time entries or encourage you to log non-billable time if that is your company's policy. If you see the grey briefcase icon, these are typically non-working days for your Accelo user profile - though we won't stop you logging time there ;-)
When first connecting JIRA to Accelo, there's a step for mapping your JIRA users to the right Accelo user. This feature used an email matching mechanism to auto-map the users. JIRA made a change which blocked us from easily getting the email address of the JIRA users, but we've now implemented a work-around to resolve this.
Accelo's expense module allows you to select particular material & services items to be used against expenses, to make the invoicing and purchasing process easier. However when importing an invoice from QuickBooks Online, we were having difficulty reconciling a line item's product code if the equivalent material in Accelo had been flagged to be used as an expense item too. The result was that a smaller number of invoices were synced into Accelo with missing line items - which is now resolved.
Some users reported a sporadic problem with file/attachment uploads failing to complete. Our team have identified and fixed the system performance issue that was causing this very occasional upload error.
