Timesheet Widget – Beta Now Available

UPDATE: The Timer Widget (beta) is now available. Just go to http://<youraccount>.worketc.com/tools.aspx to install the app. Please post any feedback over on this forum.

We’re maybe 2 or 3 days away from making the WORK[etc] timesheet widget available for public beta. The widget is built in Silverlight and should work flawlessly on both Apple and Windows desktops.

Why Silverlight? It’s fast, it looks good, it is cross platform and in theory will work seamlessly on Windows Mobile and on Apple iPhone sometime in 2010.

Here are some sneak previews:

Silverlight Widgets as a Platform

Depending on how the Timer Widget is received (and how well it works on mobile devices) we may look to bring additional functionality to the widget:

  • Addressbook lookup
  • Quick Contact creation
  • Calendars
  • To-Do List
  • Sales Actions

I’ll update this post when the timer is available for public beta and
how to access it from your account.
