Following on from our recent revamp of the time tracking area of FreeAgent, we’ve released a bunch of improvements based on your feedback.
We've had a good response to the new and updated time tracking tracking feature, which was released last month. We've also had lots of constructive feedback on how it could be improved, so we've been working hard on adding new features and resolving points of frustration.
Inline adding of timeslips
The one thing people missed most from the older time tracking interface was the ability to quickly add timeslips by day in the Week view. This is especially useful if you're retrospectively filling in your time for the week.
The good news is you can now do this by clicking on the inline Add Timeslip link next to the date header.
We've updated the running timer indicator in the header, so it now displays details of all running timers, with the ability to stop them directly from there.
In addition to these changes, we've also made a bunch of smaller improvements to improve tracking your time experience:
- You can now tab correctly in the time tracking widget, allowing you to use the keyboard to create timeslips
- The Project/task drop downs now correctly remembers the last one selected
- The last timeline/week/day view will now be remembered across different login sessions
- The display of data in the timeslips table has been tidied up and we've made a number of performance improvements
In another small win for user experience, we've added Edit and Delete buttons to the Estimates and Recurring Invoices tables. Like, totally expeditious dude.Until next time,

End of month and having another moment of raw appreciation for just how much easier @freeagent makes things for me...
@freeagent I love your relentless quest for enhancement: it shows you're as committed to evolving my business as I am.
Picked up some parcels from the post office. Got this from my secret admirer, @freeagent. Thank you, love you too! http://t.co/1xzcCpIGpG
If there is any award out there for UX, you should get one, @freeagent. The most pleasant UX I’ve ever experienced with a web app.
Really happy with FreeAgent as my #onlineaccounting tool. Plenty of positive feedback from clients and easy peasy to use #tax #business
