When switching from the old Timenye version to the new one, you may find it disorienting because some elements are in different positions. For example, the dashboard section has undergone a major design change. The functions that were previously located in the top bar, such as the Register Time button, entries log, and user profile, are now integrated into the sleek blue sidebar for a more streamlined layout. Moreover, we've added a task tab in the insight sidebar on the right. We understand that these are a lot of changes, so we've created a guide to help you get familiar with the new dashboard and find where everything is now.

Where to find the top bar elements in the new design

1) The Timers

The clock icon is now positioned next to the "Register Time" button in the blue navigation bar. Its function remains the same: to indicate how many timers are currently active. By clicking on it, you can see a breakdown of all your active timers and save the entries if you want.

2) The Register Time button

Let's start with the component workers use more often during the day: the blue Register Time button.

Now it's placed at the top of the navigation bar, on the left. Its function remains the same, and it remains fixed for easy access as users navigate through the different sections of the Timeneye app.

3) The Entries Log

The entries log is now located in the blue navigation bar. If it's not visible, you need to pin it (more on this later). It has a different icon but functions the same way. When you click on it, a dialog will open, displaying a list of your time entries. This list now includes not only the time and billing status, but also the costs and revenue for each time entry.

4) Notifications

Notifications and announcements are now hidden inside the user profile, at the bottom of the blue navigation bar.

5) The Help Desk

To access the Help Desk, go to the Support and then select Help Centre. You will find the same menu as before.

6) The User Profile

The user profile has been moved to the bottom left corner of the screen. All previous options are still available, except for inviting new members, which is now located in the Team section.

How to collapse the bar?

Hover over the blue sidebar with your cursor to reveal a white round button at the top of the bar near the workspace name. The same applies to the Insights sidebar on the right of the calendar dashboard.

The Management section

The management section is now called "Settings." It contains the same menu items, except for Clients and Team members that now have their own dedicated section in the navigation bar. The settings also include the Integrations and the Expense categories. One last difference: the "Plan & Billing" page is now been renamed to "Subscription."

Pin and Unpin the navigation bar elements

You now have the ability to personalize your Timeneye navigation bar. As a manager, you can pin or unpin Timeneye sections in the main menu, allowing quick and convenient access to the features that are most important to you.

To personalize your navigation bar, simply click on "More" to see which features can be added to your bar, and then click on the pin icon to select them. The selected features will automatically appear among the other menu items. To unpin an item, hover over it with your cursor and click on the three dots, then select "unpin".

Please note that not all items can be unpinned, such as Dashboard, Team, and Projects.

The new Insights & Tasks sidebar

The sidebar is now split into two tabs: Insights, which provides visual summaries of your projects, and Tasks. Within the Tasks tab, you'll find a dropdown menu that allows you to easily switch between tasks assigned to you and your personal tasks. If you have connected Timeneye with MS To Do and MS Planner, your sidebar should already be populated with tasks. If not, you'll find a prompt in each section inviting you to integrate with your preferred Microsoft software.

To start a timer for a task, simply click on the play icon next to its name. The sidebar also allows you to quickly create new tasks, whenever you need.
