A few small bugs that we fixed last week…
1. Free accounts could see Timer buttons
Since this functionality is disabled for free accounts we removed the display of the following links/buttons:
a. ‘Add Time’ form on the Time Sheet page
b. ‘Start Timer’ button on the Time Sheet Print Preview page.
2. Time log entry link navigation
Clicking on the Time Added action entry of any previous dates on the Dashboard or History section would always navigate to Today’s time sheet page. Now, it will navigate to the correct date’s time sheet page.
3. Adding time linked to a Milestone
Add time to a task (by using the Start Timer) that is linked to a milestone. Then go to that Time Sheet page. Here the Milestone name would not show up. This has been fixed.
4. Adding time to FreshBooks
Add a time linked with a FreshBooks task and without refreshing that page update the time again. The newly updated time was not reflecting on the FreshBooks page. This is fixed.
We wanted to formally blog about the release of Sahil Parikh’s book - The SaaS Edge (published by Tata Mcgraw-Hill, India). The main theme of the book revolves around how businesses can harness the power of Software As A Service, Web 2.0 and on-demand computing to lower cost, increase efficiency and productivity. Everything is moving to the Web and so should your business!
We believe that the book is in line with what we have been working on in the last 3 years - bringing a simple yet powerful tool (DeskAway) to businesses to help them work smarter.
If you are still not convinced about moving to online tools then here is an excerpt from Sahil’s book that you must read - SaaS Myths.
We have created a dedicated Facebook Fan page to talk about the book, post announcements and reviews. Do join us at www.facebook.com/thesaasedge
Have a great weekend!

We will try to cater to all support requests but due to our national Diwali festival our support time might be slower than usual. Any questions related to billing/account management will be resolved on Monday Nov. 8th, 2010.
Diwali is the festival of lights - we light lamps (diyas), visit relatives, feast and display fireworks. It is something similar to the week of Christmas.
Have a great weekend!
