At the tab »Reports => Projects«, mite lists all of your projects with their total hours, revenue, and budget status. You can now export this information to Excel or as CSV file, too. The new feature sits in the right sidebar.
We’d like to thank all feedbackers. Hopefully, this update will support you in keeping all of your projects on track.

Every now and then, when you add a new time entry at the tab »Time tracking«, you realize that the project you want to assign your time entry to has not been created yet. That’s why mite offers a shortcut to add projects right from the select menue.
When you click on the list item »Add project«, you have solely been able to pick a name for the new project.
Now, you can also choose which customer your new project should be assigned to.
Thanks to all of you who suggested this improvement! Hopefully, this little helper will smoothen your time tracking.

Even filters should get back to school once in a while, and mite’s filters were happy to: Now they know how to handle the Boolean search operator OR. And because they are smart AND kind filters, they wrapped their new skills in a simple-to-use interface.
On the list of all time entries at the tab »Reports => Time entries«, you could only filter by one single element of each category. Now, multiple selects are available. For example, you can now filter by two or more projects at once. Customers, projects, services, and users got multiple selects too.
When you select one filter of a category, a plus-shaped button will appear on the right-hand side of the select. Click on this button to select an additional filter of the same category. When you select two or more filters of the same category, additional minus-shaped buttons will appear next to the selects. Click on one of these buttons to remove the associated filter.
At the tab »Reports => Projects«, you can now make use of the new multiple selects, too. Filter by one, two, or more customers, just as you wish.
Hopefully, these new mighty filters will help you to analyse your data better! Give them a try and tell us how they are working for you. We’d love to get feedback.

Machinery needs a little bit of grease every now and then, software an update, and a home a cleaning. Some projects lack the one big final »Done!«—and a feature to budget them smoothly in mite. E.g., if you agreed with your client on maintaining a project for 20 hours a month, you had to add a new project every single month to keep a keen eye on its budget.
No more! You can now set a monthly budget for a project, too. As usually, you can budget in hours or euro or another currency. Simply choose the brand spanking new option »hours per month« or »euros per month«, when adding or editing a project on the tab »Projects«.
mite will then display the percentual useage of the monthly budget and the remaining or exceeded hours or euros in all the familiar places. If the budget exceeds 75%, it will show up on your dashboard report as ‘critical’. Budgets will always be displayed on »Reports => Projects« and on project reports, including possible shared reports.
The project report of active projects will show the budget status of the current month in the upper right-hand corner. The report of archived projects will show the budget average instead.
Click on »Show all months« to have a thorough look at the historical budget data, starting with the first month you tracked a time entry on.
If you did not track any time entries at all on a given month, the average will be calculated excluding this month. Add a time entry with 0:00 to force mite to include an easy-going month in the average.
Hopefully, this update will help you to manage recurring budgets more smoothly. We’d love to hear some feedback. Give it a try and tell us how it’s working for you. Thanks!

Every mite.account is available under its own, unique URL. When you sign-up for a new account, you choose this personal login. E.g., if your login is »myteam«, you log-in at https://myteam.mite.yo.lk.
You can now change this login—which can be handy if you rename your company for example. The owner of the account and administrators can find this new feature under the tab »Account«.
If you change the login of your account, the renamed account will be at your service under its new address immediately. Please inform your team about the update, so nobody will get lost. Also, the URLs of any shared reports will change. Thus, please let your clients know, too. Thanks!

Working days often differ strongly in detail, but follow a similar basic structur. At some moment of the day, we usually check our mails, take care of administrative issues, get our team on the same page in a meeting, and push forward our current project.
From today on, you won’t have to add the same time entries from the ground up every single day. Instead, mite will be happy to help you kickstart your day. With a single click, you can now copy last working day’s time entries as a template for the current day.
If you select a day without time entries, you’ll see a link on the white content area which says »Copy last working day’s entries as a template«. When you click on it, mite will duplicate the project and service of these time entries, delete their notes, and reset their hours. Now, you can start the timer on any of these template entries, or edit their hours directly.
If you don’t need one or several of the copied time entries on the current day, simply delete them. The last working day is the last day on which you added at least one time entry. Time entries with archived projects and/or services won’t get copied. Of course, you can manually add more time entries to the copied ones. The time tracking features you’re accustomed with won’t change at all.
We hope so much that this new feature will help you save some precious time, day by day! Please tell us how the update is working out for you. Constructive feedback is super-important for improving mite. Thanks!

The recently launched select menus feature a search to find any given entry in no time at all. We just updated this search: You can now search for groups, too. E.g., if you create a new time entry, you can search the select »Project« not only for a project, but also for a customer. mite will then display all projects of the customer in question.
Thanks so much for your numerous feedback suggesting this enhancement! We’re very happy to know the search feature is utilized to such an extent already.

Goodbye standards, salut flexibility! From today on, a home-brewed version of an essential interface element is in operation in all modern browsers. Fully flavored à la mite, search included — please meet our new select menus:
Homebrewing gave us the chance to regain full control of the selects, and add some much-requested spice: search. Hopefully, this new flavor will simplify and speed-up every single choice, especially for teams and freelancers juggling a multitude of projects and/or services. Please make your voice heard how the new selects are working out for you. Feedback is much appreciated.
Thanks to all those user who got in touch to suggest this update, and to Chosen, the open source project which forms the foundation of our version. Merci for releasing the code!
Update, November 13th: Thanks so much for your open and constructive feedback here, via Twitter and e-mail! You made yourself clear: thumbs up for the features, thumbs down for the look and feel. Especially with longer names, the new selects became less clear, and even a a hord of zebras galloping through the selects was spotted.
We heard you. We got back to work. And just published an update of the update. Thanks again for your honest feedback. We do hope that we got it right and really better this time!
Update, November 14th: If you open the new selects, they now adapt their height to the space available in your browser window. You’ll see far more elements at a glance on bigger screens.
Update, November 15th: You can now search for groups, too. E.g, search for a customer in the select »Project«.
Update, January 28th: The new selects under the tab »Time tracking« now adapt their width to the space available, too. They show up to ten more characters.

Got tired of scrolling through all too long lists of customers, projects, services, or users to find what you’re looking for? Help is here: mite now features a smart search for each of those tabs.
To find an object, click into the search field in the right sidebar or press f on your keyboard, and type the first characters of your search term. In modern browsers, results will show up and adapt as you type. In older browsers and Internet Explorers <10, press return or click on the magnifying glass icon to start your search.
Generally, mite finds all objects whose names include your search term. Furthermore, you can search for customer names under the tab »Projects« as well as for e-mail addresses under »Team« by simply using the same search box.
Cheers to a speedier mite! Hopefully, today’s update will improve the handling especially for hard-working teams.
