2010 Summery and Plans for 2011

2010 was an eventful year for me, it's a little strange looking at my plans for 2010 blog post and see how much things turned out different then I planned them.

Here is a quick look at all of my products, what happened to them in 2010 and what's planned for 2011 (disclaimer: you can expect the same accuracy in the plans for 2011 as there was in the plans for 2010 - that is, things will change)

yaTimer time tracking software

There were two major updates planned for 2010, version 2.6 and version 3.0.

Version 2.6 was released on time - but with a different feature set than I originally planned, the original features planned for 2.6 are now on hold because I'm not sure they were a good idea to begin with.

Version 3.0 wasn't released yet, and there is a very good chance there will be a 2.7 version before it.

There will be at least one new version of yaTimer in 2011, it may be called 2.7 or it may be called 3.0, depending on what features will go into it.

yaTimer Central - Sync and collaboration for yaTimer

A new add-on service to yaTimer that was not planned for 2010, I wanted to release this for ages but it was never the top priority, well, I actually got it done.

The personal edition of yaTimer Central let you sync all your copies of yaTimer over the internet, the more advanced editions let you share data with your team and generate reports for the entire team.

The yaTimer Newsletter - the monthly productivity newsletter for busy people

Another unplanned addition to the yaTimer family, a free short monthly newsletter about productivity (you can subscribe here).

Squirrel Clock - employee time and attendance tracking

Squirrel Clock was supposed to be released in February 2010, but I've seen it wasn't doing well so I've shut it down and changed everything, the new Squirrel Clock with the improved design and usability will probably be out before the end of January 2011.

You can still sign up to be notified when it's ready and get a nice discount, this offer will expire the minute Squirrel Clock is online.

Productivity Tips

A new productivity section of the site went live on June, if you want productivity tips on a specific topic or have tips to share you can contact me at the usual places.

This Blog

This blog will continue without any major changes, the topic may change a little depending on what I'm working on.

The Undisclosed Future Product

In the plans for 2010 post there was an undisclosed product planed for the 3rd quarter of 2010, due to all the unplanned work on yaTimer Central and Squirrel Clock it was not released - so I'm happy I didn't give more details a year ago.

I hope I'll get it done in 2011 but I'm not sure - it all depends on how successful Squirrel Clock is.

Well, as you see things didn't work out as I planned them - but I'm happy with what happened, 2010 was a good year for me and I hope 2011 will be even better.

I hope you also had a good 2010 and I wish you a great 2011.
