If you have recently assigned a task to a team member and a few minuets later a email turns up in your inbox from them, saying “they will get the task done in no time”. Don’t panic its not that they are sitting on Skylight all the time, its because Skylight had just sent them an email notification saying they have been assigned a task on Skylight by you.
This new feature helps current users of Basecemp move to Skylight and benefit from the added functionality and features we offer.
Skylight now offers OpenID for signing up and logging in. Use Google, Yahoo, AOL, Flickr, Blogger, WordPress, LiveJournal and many more as an openID.
We received quite a few requests recently for the ability to add files to tasks. This feature has been in the pipeline for a while, and those requests just pushed it to the top – so thank you for your suggestions. After a week of hard work we are proud to announce:
Team-driven projects have gained a lot of juice just in the last few years because of cloud computing innovations that allow for new levels of sharing and collaborating. Questions like, “who’s got the latest iteration?” “Who’s allowed to access that?” and “What other files are involved?” are now answered easily. Google was one of the earliest innovators in software-as-a-service, and Google Docs is a wonderful team tool for keeping track of, sharing, and collaborating over documents.
Project calendar shows milestones and bookings; with a summary of tasks, milestones and a list of four recent files belonging to the current project.
Now you can create Invoices, Quotes and PO’s and new accounting dashboard widgets, organized by latest activity. On each widget you have option to either go to the record, edit it or go to the Project or Contact it relates too.
