New department manager access + the option to limit your team's view to multiple departments

The new Department Manager role gives your team more focused visibility and increased scheduling powers for their assigned departments in Float.

Department Managers can assign new tasks and time off to their department, manage their team's logged time, and invite new people to join Float.

For more on the different access rights available, check out this help article.

Also new is the option to limit your team's view to multiple departments. For large, distributed teams, this helps deliver a more personalized view of the people and projects they need to see—and hides the ones they don't.

    Time Tracking

New time options to help your team plan, track, and bill smarter

We've added more granularity to time inputs in Float to help you plan your people and projects with more precision.

Tasks can now be scheduled in increments as small as 1 minute (down from 15 minutes), and up to two decimal places (e.g., 3.33 hours). For teams who schedule in 6-minute increments and bill at 1/10th of an hour, this helps ensure that client invoices are 100% accurate.

More granular time also means that there are additional round-up options for logging time, project budgets can be adjusted on the fly and tracked with ease, and your team's work hours can be set right down to the minute!
