Saved filters have expanded to Views, with shareable options!

Saved views hero post

Now you can save your favorite filters as 'Views' in Float. Admins will have the option to set their saved Views as 'Personal' or 'Shared', which determines whether or not you want this View accessible to your team.

This has been a popular request for larger accounts who are working as teams within teams in Float. For example, let's say that you're a 30-people design department working in a 150-people Float team. Your team will be able to log in and access your shared View 'Design team' to quickly see what's relevant to them, faster.

A new Role tab has been added to People reports

new roles tab people reports

Great news! In our ongoing effort to enhance role management and planning in Float, we've added a new 'Role' tab in People reports. Now you can easily see your team's capacity and scheduled hours by role!

Here's a simple scenario: Imagine you have an upcoming project that needs multiple designers, but your designers are already booked on other work. In the People reports you can easily jump to the 'Role' tab to see what your "Designer" role's availability is for any specified time period—helping you plan ahead!

    Time Tracking

Time logs now display in hours and minutes (HH:MM) format

At Float, we often think of capacity and allocations in hours, e.g., Rachel is allocated 20 hours on Ben & Jerry's summer campaign next week. We've listened to feedback that an hours and minutes, HH:MM, format is more natural for viewing time tracking logs. In other words, if a team member logs 45 minutes of work, it's easier to see this displayed as 00:45 than 0.75 hours.

That's why time tracking pages have been updated to show in an hours and minutes, HH:MM, format—making your team's logged time clearer and more intuitive to see.

HH:MM log time update

Here's what you need to know:

  • Only time logging is changing to HH:MM. Your Schedule will still appear in decimal hours.
  • You can switch back to decimal hours at any time in your Personal settings.
  • Don't worry about your data—nothing's changing. It will still be stored the same way, meaning that your reports and exports will continue to work as is.
  • Suggested time logs are still shown when available. The date on the log time modal is now fixed for greater accuracy, meaning that you can't modify the date when logging time from the modal, but you can still click and drag to edit this on the log time page.

This update aligns with our new web timer feature launching in a few weeks. Stay tuned!

    Project Planning

A new Role management page to streamline future planning and estimating in Float

New roles management in Float

We're expanding how you can manage Roles in Float to supercharge your project planning. In March, we renamed the 'Job Title' field to 'Role' to encourage standardized team setups. This week we've rolled out a dedicated Roles management section within your Team Settings. From here, Admins and Account Owners can easily add, edit, and delete Roles for their team. This streamlines the governance of how your team uses Float by making it easier to manage your team's setup and workflows. Even better, setting up Roles will enable you to take full advantage of upcoming project estimation and planning features later this year.

Zero clicks, zero effort: New automatic timesheets ✨

Automagic timesheets

Let's be honest, timesheets can be a burden. The last thing anyone wants to do on a Friday, or any day really, is spend their precious time logging hours worked. Ironic, isn't it?!

For teams working on longer-term or retainer-based projects, weekly allocations become fairly predictable. As a result, logging your hours is often a repetitive task that doesn't require any manual input.

We've got a solution for you.
