A year ago the Formula Student Team of the University of Applied Sciences from Darmstadt, Germany contacted us about sponsoring their next season. As a team of about 30 students who are designing and building race cars a bit smaller than Formula 1 cars, they were looking for a better way to manage their team. They found 5pm to be the best fit for the task, and we agreed to offer them a free account for a year.

The year passed and the car is ready! Here is 5pm logo on the car – how cool is that! :-)

5pm

They will be driving against other universities all over the world. We wish them success!

5pm and Microsoft OneDrive integration

OneDrive

We just added the integration with Microsoft OneDrive file storage service.

Now you can easily link any files from OneDrive – documents, pictures, even whole folders.

Using 5pm with OneDrive gives you the flexibility to keep your files in OneDrive, while still linking them from 5pm – no need to store them in two locations!

5pm also integrates with Google Drive and Dropbox file storage service.

8am

8am light CRM and calendar tool is now available for commercial use!

While 5pm is great for tracking individual projects you do for clients, 8am can serve as a general client area, with all the information and communication related to them. In 8am you can schedule phone calls, track follow ups, set small tasks and more. You can import your 5pm clients into 8am with a few clicks. When there is a new project for a client, you can create it in 5pm and simply post the link to it into 8am, for reference.

We plan to look into more integration between 5pm and 8am.

You can try 8am at: www.8amweb.com – a free 14-day trial is available.

New feature: Copy project tags to its tasks

Copy Tags

The filter by tags right now filters projects and tasks at the same time. So, if you have a tag assigned only to the project, it will not show the tasks…

To help with that, we just added a simple option to copy project tags to all its open tasks (available via the right click on the project name).

5pm - assigning a team when adding multiple tasks

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.
