What’s New in Runn - 9 March ‘20

Another huge product update! Here's a sneak peek of our new Viewer permissions, personal dashboard, test account, CSV importing, and more!

We have another huge product update for you today!

In this release we’ve added a new Viewer permission so you can further control access to your Runn account, a personal dashboard for your team members to quickly access their information and enter timesheets, the ability to tag projects and people, and several more features. Read on to find out more!

Feel free to flick us an email at if you have any questions about this release.

Strengthen your controls with tiered permissions

Do you need to show your accountant your financial data? Or a team member what their current workload is? Our new Viewer permission allows you to give people access to your Runn account without letting them change things around.

We have two types of Viewer permissions: Viewer All and Viewer Basic.

  • Viewer All allows people to view everything based on their financial permissions, but they can’t edit anything except their own details and timesheets.
  • Viewer Basic allows people to see only the planner and their personal dashboard, but,  as per Viewer All, they can’t edit anything except their own details and timesheets.

Click here to find out how to manage your users’ access permissions.

Keep track of your own work in your dashboard

Everyone in your business can now view their own schedule and enter their timesheets in our all-new personal dashboards!

The awesome thing about this feature is it works beautifully with the new Viewer permission to let users create and maintain their timesheets. Invite users with either of the Viewer permissions, let them update their actuals (AKA fill in their timesheets), and you can compare your forecasted hours with actuals - all within Runn.

For someone to access “My Dashboard”, their Person profile needs to have an email address and they need to be invited with the same email address.

We’d love some feedback on what else you would like to see in your dashboard!

Experiment before committing

If you’re worried about performing an action on your live account, the test account will be your new best friend.

Use your test account to play with demo data, copy your live data, reset and delete data, import data, work with the API - the list goes on.

Tag your Projects and People

You can now assign tags to your projects and people for easier searching and filtering.

Say you need to add a Javascript coder to a project - you can filter by your people’s tags to find someone with the right skills. Or if you want your planner to only display certain projects - you can filter by your project’s tags to display what you want.

Bulk import via CSV

We’ve eliminated the need for you to manually create all your clients, projects, people and roles! You can now import your CSV files for mass importing.

Head to the Settings to find out more.

Some extra shoutouts:

  • We’ve added the option to “Edit Contract” and “Change Role” right from a person’s edit “…” menu
  • Click the user icon on the planner to instantly view your own projects and assignments
  • "Star" projects and people on the planner and then select to only view starred items
