Collabtive 3.0 released

Today we are happy to announce the release of Collabtive 3.0.

It’s a major version release and the result of extensive development going on over the last year.
With more than 50 changes, this is also one of our largest releases to date.
All known bugs have been fixed.

The focus of this release is on performance improvements and a more responsive user experience.
To achieve this, a new plugin system has been implemented and the user interface completely overhauled.

More Responsive User Interface
The Collabtive UI has been re-engineered using modern JavaScript rendering technology.
It loads faster and enables a more reactive user experience.
Page reloads have been minimized in favor of asynchronous loading and rendering of data.
Likewise, the creation of projects, tasks, etc. is now asynchronous.
The new UI rendering system also lays the foundation for more improvements in future releases.

Time – Successful Teams’ most Precious Resource

If you charge your clients by the hour, it’s obvious that you need to know how long you’re spending on projects. But even if you don’t, and you currently think you don’t need to track time, you should think twice!
Keeping track of time spent is not only useful for billing, but can also contribute to a culture of open communication within your team. If a member’s time spent is visible to her peers, it’s a strong incentive to make rational decisions about how to use everyone’s time. Therefore time trackers are one of the most important tools for any leader.

Collabtive makes time tracking easy by recording time spent on tasks within projects:

After logging in and going to the dashboard of the project you worked on, hit the “Timetracker” bar.
Now you see a form like this one:
