Crowdfunding Campaign

  1. Overview
    • Do you like and share my vision of keeping free forever? Sponsorship or Donation may be a better way to say your YES out loud.
    • Developing and maintaining a feature-rich platform like require substantial effort and cost just like you do in your business. Moving forward, the challenges for resources needed to enrich and keep as a free platform will undoubtedly multiply. We need MORE sponsors.
    • If you would like to find out who are currently supporting through sponsorships or donations, you may sign in your account and click at the Crowdfund link which is located at the bottom of the navigation menu.
  2. Care to buy me a cup of Starbucks coffee?
    • With the equivalent of buying me a cup of Starbucks coffee each month ($5 per sponsorship), you will be contributing to's success tremendously. As a token of appreciation for your long term financial support, you will enjoy:
      • Ads-Free in both Employer and Employee Web Accounts.
      • Extra 3500 MB File Storage (or 7000 MB for Yearly sponsorship) for your Employer account per unit of sponsorship
      • Extra 1 HR Role (or 2 HR Role for Yearly sponsorship) per unit of sponsorship
      • Early access to features under Preview scope
    • You may make the sponsorship payment easily via Credit Card, Debit Card, Apple Pay or Google Pay. Each month (or year), your sponsored amount will be deducted from your Credit Card, Debit Card, Apple Pay or Google Pay account automatically. Most importantly, you may cancel your sponsorship immediately at any time, hassle-free guaranteed.
    • If you wish to join Crowdfunding campaign, you may sign in your Employer account, then click at the Crowdfund link on the menu.
  3. Why some features are under Preview scope?
    • Some of the newly developed features are only made possible with considerable computing resources, e.g. Leave Entitlement Summary export. This is because extensive real-time data processing is needed to support such features, which in turn will put an enormous burden on the limited server resources.
    • If more users are accessing the same features simultaneously, it will likely cause the servers to grind to a halt, or even stop responding. Trust me, this is definitely not an event that we would like to see it happen.
    • As a workaround, I will have to limit the access to these features by placing them under Preview scope first, that will only be accessible to a handful of Crowdfunding Sponsors. The features under Preview scope will eventually be accessible to all users when I am confident that the server computing resources have been increased to a level that could sustain such heavy loads.
    • In the meantime, some other newly developed features are just nice-to-have but not crucial to the use of at all. These features are placed under Preview scope with the hope that they may help motivate users to join the Crowdfunding campaign.
