5pm Celebrates 9 Years!

9 years

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!

You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+.

5pm speaks 26 languages now!

5pm translation project5pm interface is now available in Arabic. The credit goes to Moaz Albasha for the contribution.

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!

5pm iPhone app

We just added Quick Search to our iPhone app — now you can locate projects and tasks even faster.

5pm Timeline

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.

Original Deadline

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.

Box and OneDrive integration

Onedrive and Box

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.

5pm iPhone app update
We just updated our iPhone app — now you can edit the parent task field as well.

We also used this opportunity to fix some issues we found and improve it in some places.

You can download it from iTunes here.
