On the first day of creation, God put light and dark themes in the backlog. By day four they went live to prod. We took considerably longer than that to add a light theme to Timelinr, but we trust you’ll love it just as much as our standard dark theme. Just click on your profile […]
NEW FEATURE: Move Kanban Board Cards and Timeline Bars (beam data between the parallel universes of your projects)
We know you all have a lot going on. You’re like a demigod juggling multiple worlds and keeping them all from self destructing. It’s hard work. Sometimes you need to move stuff around. One card in a board might need to be duplicated and moved elsewhere, or just thrown on a stand alone backlog board. […]
NEW FEATURE: Link your entire board to a timeline in one go.
Today’s announcement is really exciting, and we know a lot of you have been waiting for this. The power of, if not one of the main reasons to use Timelinr, is being able to link cards on your kanban boards (micro planning view) to any timeline or multiple timelines in the system. If you didn’t […]
NEW FEATURE: We know you’re a hoarder. (Archive Kanban Columns is live.)
If you’ve ever been on a team that uses Kanban boards to plan on the daily, you know they can get messy. I was on a team once that had like 50 done columns. We’ve added archive to the column menu so you can archive a column that’s no longer needed. Not to fear though […]
NEW FEATURE: Seek (Search) And You Will Find
If you’re using Timelinr, you’ve no doubt been wondering, “How do I search for a Board or Timeline, Card or Bar in Timelinr?” Honestly until today there hasn’t been a way. File this update under necessary features for a roadmapping / project management tool. We’ve got you covered. To get started just click on the […]
FEATURE UPDATE: We Duplicated Duplication (Duplicate boards and timelines)
You liked it when we launched duplication for individual cards and bars. But you asked for more. Mostly because you’re insatiable. You wanted to duplicate entire boards and timelines. Of course we knew this was needed, we just hoped you would be patient and not ask and then we could surprise you. Regardless, it’s live. […]
NEW FEATURE: Link Cards/Boards to Timelines!
This post is really late. We launched this months ago but I never wrote about it. I will do better. This is actually the most important feature update we’ve ever launched. The key to the Timelinr Methodology actually working is that you need to be able to push tasks from your Kanban board (micro view) […]
Designer School Series: How to Handle Feedback
First a disclaimer. The idea for this series came from @workbyben on Twitter. It’s a fantastic list as you’ll see if you stick with us, so be sure to follow, subscribe, turn on notifications, and all that jazz. Now that credit’s been given where due, on to the topic at hand. How to Handle Feedback? […]
Macro vs Micro? — Why Agile and Waterfall are both wrong.
I’ve been managing development and creative teams for over 15 years. I’ve come to realize everyone’s doing it wrong. The current state of affairs makes it very easy to fall down the slippery slope of micro-management and over-management. Let’s take a closer look. Origins — Waterfall Circa 1910. Dude named Henry Gantt creates a chart defining projects […]
NEW FEATURE: Filter All The Things (+ more)
What good is seeing all the things your team is working on, if you can’t narrow it down and show each team member’s tasks? Yea—No good at all. As per usual, we’ve been hard at work making Timelinr better than any app you’ve ever used. Just choose any Board or Timeline and you can now […]
NEW FEATURE: You can now clone yourself in Timelinr. (aka—duplicate your cards and bars easily)
Ever since I watched that one movie with the dude that was a clone of another dude and then escaped this factory and went back and killed the other dude… I’ve always wanted to clone myself. While I wait on the governmental powers that be to allow for such adventures, I figured we’d make your […]
NEW FEATURE: Keep a Creepy Eye on Your Team (aka— Active User Indicators are LIVE)
I sit in my office most of the day and stare at my computer. Timelinr is always open. Sometimes I wonder what my team is up to. Where are they? Who are they? Now I no longer have to wonder. With our latest feature release you can see your active users and what projects they’re […]
NEW FEATURE: “Your Command Center is Ready Captain” (aka—Timelinr Releases the Hottest Dashboard in Project Management)
So I’m not sure why no one else in our space has a decent dashboard. Seems like a no brainer to me, but whatever. We’ve been busy. To Dos are live. Boards are linked to Timelines in what was likely the greatest feature improvement of any product in 2017. And now we’ve done it again. […]
Forget Your Passions
“Do what you love” they say. The truth is, that’s not the best guide for success. Especially early in your career, your passions usually make for a bad day job or business. I’ve met countless people that have ruined their hobbies by making it their livelihood. And then there’s the issue of which passion do […]
Where’s Your Permission Slip?
Keeping things simple is our main goal for the product. When it came to team permissions, I didn’t want us to get bogged down by overly complicated architecture around access etc. After a couple bumps up front, here’s how it works today and going forward. Owners Control everything obviously. Main control differences over admins is […]
Oh Look, It’s Todos
Now you can break down a larger task defined by a card or bar into smaller tasks. Todos let you define the individual tasks that make up a project when the individual tasks are too small to be defined more concretely as having their own card or bar. Sure that’s cool, but it’s been done […]
