News: Now on Mastodon, too

You can find us on Mastodon now: https://mastodon.social/@mite
We will post about what's new at mite in a calm, low-frequency way. Also, we'll inform you there in case of a server hiccup.

Simultaneously we say: Good night, Twitter. For more than 15 years, we've been chirping there as @mite and enjoying conversations with lots of users. But on X we do not feel comfortable anymore. We cannot stand what this place is being turned into by Musk. Hopefully, we`ll re-connect in a more civilised space – if you want to. Of course, we'll continue to post here on our home base, our blog. Thanks, and on to more important things.

Dashboard reports: Choose which budgets to keep track of

For each project in mite you can define a budget – in hours or dollars, for the whole project or as a monthly recurring one. A budget may help you to keep your project on track, at a glance.

On the dashboard reports, at the »Reports« tab, mite used to display a section labeled »Critical budgets«. Active projects showed up there as soon as 75% of their budget had been utilized. mite suggested to pay extra attention to these projects.

Now, you can choose which projects should be displayed on the dashboard reports:

Dashboard reports: Choose which budgets to keep track of

You may want to see all active projects with a budget, or projects with a budget utilization from 50%, from 75%, or from 100%. You decide. To pick your favorite view, click on the small triangular button on the righ-hand side of the section headline »Budgets«.

Please note that on the dashboards of each team member, mite tries to only display projects that are relevant to this person. Projects will only show up there if you or the team member in question has created at least one time entry on this project.

In this section, mite will display a maximum of 20 projects. If there are more you'll see a link leading to the tab »Reports => Projects«. There, you may analyze all hundreds or thousands of projects of your account.

Thanks to all users who suggested this improvement. Hopefully this small update will make it a little easier for you too to keep track of your projects.

Today’s service interruption

Between 14:47 und 15:28 CEST, mite was unavailable for many users. In the beginning of the affected time frame, about 5% of all requests could not be fulfilled, at the peak about 40% could not be handled successfully.

No data has been damaged. Nevertheless this interruption had a negative effect besides the unavailablility: We had to log-out all users, so everybody has to log-in once again.

The problem was on us, not our hoster. Right now, we are still investigating, we do not know exactly yet which processes blocked each other. We are very sorry for this interruption. Especially during working hours this is more than annoying. The last downtime has been several years ago ago. But, each interruption is one too many. Again: please excuse us.

mite for iPhone: version 1.2.0

For our official iPhone app there's an update available on the App Store. Version 1.2.0 includes two new features and some polishing:

  • Add a new project or service while creating a new time entry. When selecting the project or the service, click on the icon with the plus sign on the right-hand side of the search field to add one that's missing, fast.
  • Forget forgotten timers. If a timer is still running on another day than the currently selected one mite will show you a small orange indicator in the app header.
  • The app has now arrived at the new domain mite.de too. Also, we polished some little things here and there.

Thanks for your feedback on all channels thus far. Adding projects and services right from within the app has been your top suggestion. Hopefully, this update will improve your workflows a little bit.
