Time-Tracking Beta

May 01, 2017

Time-tracking has been on our to-do list since the dawn of time. Not all freelancers track time, but those who do prefer several different ways of tracking time. Some people need the accuracy of a timer while others simply need to tally hours at the end of the day. We wanted to cater to each type, but also retain the simplicity and friendliness of Cushion’s design. After several months in private beta, we’re now opening up the time-tracking beta to everyone.

Endless Scrolling & Zooming

Feb 07, 2017

Since Cushion’s initial release, you could create “Timelines” to specify the date range you wanted to view. The idea was to provide flexibility for people who preferred seeing a quarter instead of a year, or a different fiscal year than January to December. In doing so, we built a system that was versatile, but at the cost of being unintuitive—especially at the end of the year when you would need to create a new Timeline. We decided to make Timelines a secondary feature in favor of a more fluid, calendar-like system—with endless scrolling and zooming!

Sending Invoices

Jan 23, 2017

Sending an invoice feels good because it means you’ll (hopefully) get paid soon. We want to bolster that feeling by making the process as smooth and delightful as possible. You shouldn’t feel embarrassed by the look of your invoice or need to guess whether your client even received it. Instead, the invoice should tell your client that they’re in the hands of a pro. Likewise, you should be a pro who knows exactly when your client viewed your invoice. Today, I’m excited to check the next big to-do off our list—sending invoices!

Stripe Beta

Dec 15, 2016

Every freelancer needs a way of accepting payments from clients. To make this process as smooth as possible, we built a Stripe integration to accept card payments by simply connecting your Stripe account. The integration is currently in beta, but we’re looking for freelancers who accept card payments to help us test it. If you’re interested, contact us from within Cushion and we’ll enable the beta for your account.

Invoice Logos

Dec 12, 2016

Since launching Invoicing, there have been a number of feature requests, including the ability to send invoices directy from Cushion, accept payments via credit card, and track whether the client has seen the invoice. All of these are certainly on our list, but one feature in particular was echoed by everyone—invoice logos!
