It’s been a long time since I wrote “10 things to drive your Scrum Master crazy” and it’s about time to give you some new weapons. So, here they are:
- Hide the SM’s beloved moderation markers.
- Play on your smartphone during the (planning) meetings, as long as they are not talking about YOUR tasks.
- Always lament about the same things but don’t change anything.
- Keep blaming and finger pointing everyone else except yourself for all the problems, you are only a victim.
- Ignore all agile values as they don’t apply to you.
- Simply ignore your Scrum Master, especially when he tries to coach you. Coaching is evil!
- Ignore the findings from your latest retrospective because you have more important stuff to do.
- Write as many things as possible on ONE post-it. Clustering is much more fun this way.
- Don’t put your tasks on the sprint backlog. Your Scrum Master is an evil micro manager. I swear. Transparency sucks.
- Ask your boss to put the Scrum values into the performance goals of every employee.
We’re very excited to announce that the new timesheet feature is now available in tinyPM 3.1. The timesheet is simple and easy to use. It allows you to log the time spent on tasks and gives you instant access to weekly reports by presenting them in a nice and clean table view. You may check out your tinyPM account right now or read on to learn more.
View and log the time spent on tasks of all of your projects with the new ‘My timesheet’ view.
Navigating your timesheet
Use the arrows to move back and forth through the weeks.
It’s easy to record how long you spent on a task. Just click the selected cell and change the value instantly. Using <TAB> key you can fill in several cells (days) quickly.
What tasks are contained in the timesheet?
tinyPM knows what tasks you’re working on and displays the appropriate ones. Additionally, the cells are marked with color on days that you’ve been working on a given task.
For an overview of your team activity, just click the ‘Team’ button. You will see a list of people you share the projects with and their summary of hours displayed weekly.
In the sidebar, there is a summary of the current and the previous month – total hours by project and options to export them.
For each project you can download a CSV file, which contains all hours entered by all users during the month. This file you may easily open in your ‘office’ application and convert into your favorite report.
You can also download a ready to print report in a PDF format.
We hope this timesheet makes time tracking easy and fast for you. We’d like to know what you think, as we plan to continue improving it, so the feedback and new ideas are highly welcome.
