We just released 5pm + Slack integration! With Slack group chat you can manage your team communication, while getting alerts from 5pm. Using Slack commands you can also get the list of your 5pm tasks, add new ones and even close them. [ read more ]
This week we are celebrating our 9th anniversary!
For over nine years we have been helping a wide range of organizations from local nonprofits to businesses around the world to manage their teams and projects efficiently. We are looking forward to keep improving our product — a big redesign is in the works right now.
Stay productive and get more done by 5pm!
All together 5pm is available in 26 (!) languages now: English, Swedish, French, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Polish, Italian, Croatian, Dutch, Finnish, Danish, Serbian, Hungarian, Slovak, Turkish, Korean, Chinese (Simplified), Bulgarian, Japanese, Norwegian, Vietnamese, Spanish (Mexico), Czech, and now Arabic!
Want to see 5pm translated into your language? Any 5pm user can contribute (including the free trial accounts) — just use the “Settings” menu on the top of your 5pm screen. There is a link there called “5pm Translation” that will take you to the public translation area.
We just updated 5pm Timeline view with new features — export to an image and improved the print view.
P.S. A total Timeline redesign is also in the works.
Tired of remembering multiple logins? Now you can use your existing Google or Office 365 account to login into 5pm! [ read more ]
We just added Original Deadline as an optional column (hidden by default) in General Report. It allows you to easily detect what projects/tasks missed the deadline. This field is also included into CSV/Excel export.
About Original Deadline. When a project or a task is closed (marked as Done) its deadline becomes the real close date. If the closure date is different from the deadline that was set for that project/task (and if it is present) then this old deadline is saved into Original Deadline. So if a task was supposed to be closed on May 10th, but was closed on May 15th, the Original Deadline will show May 10 and the Deadline will show May 15. You can display Original Deadline besides Deadline in main view or General Report to easily detect missed deadlines or to compare those two dates.
We just added integration with Box — now you can attach files from your Box cloud storage to 5pm projects and tasks.
We also updated OneDrive integration — it now supports OneDrive for Business and allows switching between different OneDrive accounts.
We also used this opportunity to fix some issues we found and improve it in some places.
You can download it from iTunes here.
