We’re delighted to tell you that TimeControl 7.4.1 is now available for download. This version updates TimeControl, TimeControl Industrial, TimeControl Online and the free TimeControl Mobile App. TimeControl and TimeControl Industrial clients with a current support and maintenance agreement can download the new version immediately at TimeControl.com/support/updates. HMS is preparing for the upgrade of TimeControl Online which will happen automatically in the next 2-3 weeks. TimeControl Online customers will be notified a week in advance of the update.
There are many new features to be excited about. Here are some of the highlights:
TimeControl now supports multiple methods of displaying a hierarchy of charge codes. TimeControl has long been recognized for supporting hierarchical charge structures but the new functionality takes this to a new level. Field hierarchy permits hierarchy to be built from multiple user defined fields in the Charge Table and you can create multiple breakdowns then switch them on the fly when you’re searching for charge codes in the timesheet!
Numerous new API methods
We have made extensive additions to the TimeControl API making it even easier to integrate TimeControl as part of an overall corporate environment.
Mobile Debit/Credit Adjustments
The TimeControl Mobile App now allows Debit/Credit update Adjustments. This allows supervisors and administrators to open a Posted timesheet and apply adjustments to that timesheet and release those adjustments to Posting.
Mobile Posted Expenses and Attachments
The TimeControl Mobile App now includes the ability to view the expenses that are attached to a posted timesheet in the past as well as any attachments that might have been associated to the timesheet or expenses.
We have made major changes to the Assignments Table. Assignments can now be made as part of a person’s full time availability so one person could be put on two tasks simultaneously at 50% of their availability each. You can also now have the assignment start and finish be dates other than the charge start and stop so assignments that were meant to occur only during part of the charge can be defined that way.
Administrator configuration enhancements
We have taken numerous elements of the TimeControl configuration and moved them from the TimeControl.INI file into the Administrator System Preferences and User Profiles functions. This will make a huge difference for TimeControl Online environments where some of these features had to be managed at the server level.
New User Profile Features
There are numerous new settings in User Profiles that allows TimeControl’s configuration to be tailored to the person or group with that User Profile setting. These changes include all-new Super-User reject and Modify rights . You can also change how the Timesheet List appears, allowing only a certain number of weeks in the past or future to display. A new Highlight feature helps when adding a timesheet by highlighting the current week or the last missing week for a new timesheet.
Control Period Create Times
When creating timesheets, TimeControl allows the number of periods in the past and the future to be constrained to avoid accidentally creating a timesheet in the wrong period or in a period when Finance is not expecting it.
We’ve made it possible to control who is allowed to copy hours when creating a new timesheet using the Copy Timesheet function and activated the ability to copy hours.
There’s so much more. We’ve done a lot of work on high volume capacity, improved performance, added more revision auditing, and improved usability across the application.
