You can add multiple tasks in 5pm using the “+” button on the top of the left panel. Now we extended this feature to allow you to also select the task team when doing it. Please note that if you have the flag turned on to automatically self-assign created tasks to yourself (via “settings”) – you will be automatically added to the team here as well.
Firefly is a design management and collaboration tool developed by our company. It lets you upload ans share your designs – sketches, mockups, even capture existing web pages – then add design remarks directly on top of them, creating team discussion. Now you can link easily Firefly screens to 5pm projects or tasks:
Firefly works well with 5pm when visual tasks are involved. You can keep your designs in Firefly, with discussions, versions, etc. while simply linking them in 5pm.
You can read more about the integration here and more about Firefly on www.FireflyApp.com.
Today we are celebrating our 7th anniversary!
We would like to thank all our clients for their ongoing support! You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+.
We just revealed Firefly two weeks ago and today we have another announcement to make: we are proud to present our new tool called 8am!
8am is a contact management tool with a centralized address book, calendar, events, tasks and team discussions. 8am is a light CRM designed to help you start your morning more efficiently with all information at your fingertips.
With 8am you can:
- Maintain an address book of all your contacts with custom fields, relevant notes, files, etc.
- Manage personal and team calendars with events, tasks, reminders, etc.
- Customize your team access rights
- Locate information quickly via Dashboard and real-time Search
As the name implies, we designed 8am to work as a companion to 5pm. While 5pm is designed to handle projects of different sizes, track time and manage workload, 8am is designed to handle client details and calendars.
You can import your 5pm users and contacts (clients) into 8am and see how you can use these tools side by side to get more done from 8am to 5pm!
8am is available for free while it is in beta – check it at www.8amweb.com and let us know what you think!
Firefly is a brand new app that we have been developing for a while. It allows teams to share, discuss and improve their designs.
Firefly is a perfect complement to 5pm project management tool – you can share links to Firefly designs in your 5pm projects and tasks. We plan to work on 5pm/Firefly their integration to make the posting easier.
Firefly is available for free while it is in beta – check it at www.FireflyApp.com.
Due to Google’s redesign of their Google Apps Marketplace, 5pm for Google Apps has a new location.

While you can send emails to 5pm to create tasks and messages from any email client, we made it a bit easier for Outlook users by creating the 5pm Outlook Addin:

In their recent research Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota included 5pm in their top list of project management tools.
“5pm is a platform management system that offers easy linking to Google Docs, a time tracking desktop widget, custom logos and avatars to personalize for a team, email integration and well-developed mobile app features. This PM system is used by large corporations, such as McDonalds and U.S. Bank, and in addition to offering a two-week free trial, 5pm allows potential users to “login” to an example of a typical organization setup, rather than just a standard demo or video tour of the program.”
5pm is used by many EDUs around the world, you can see some of the examples here: http://www.5pmweb.com/pm_for_edu.php
