TimeSite improvements continue to roll out, 3 Oct 2018

The TimeSite development team continues to work through our
enhancement list. Unfortunately for our diligent developers, our
thoughtful customers continue to offer wonderful ideas for
improvements. So here is a new round-up of our latest round of
enhancements released in our September builds.

The eagle-eyed among you may have already noticed a new item
appearing in the Profile tab of the User record: Kiosk Pin. We
are working on a new enhancement of our tablet mobile app that
will allow it to be set to “kiosk” mode allowing multiple users
to log in to the mobile via a Pin, and record their timesheet
record. You can mount an iOS or Android tablet in a convenient
location to support this kiosk mode of data sharing. We’ll update
you on this development when we release a new version of our
tablet app in the near future.

Similarly, we are preparing for new app integration options using
an API key that can be set via a new Settings menu option,
Integration. Again, we’ll document this important new feature in
more detail shortly.

The Enquiry report builder has been improved with a number of new
Standard Reporting options: including the addition of Timesheet
Approver and Approval Status, and User Contractor and Name to the
Group by Fields, new Data fields including Project and Task
Budget fields, new filters including Approver and Approval
Status, and improvements to the Date Range options.

We’ve made some changes to the User > Security panel to clarify
and rationalise Screen security vs Rights security. You can
specify whether users are to have access to view and edit cost
and bill rate. Certain security settings are automatically set
for Administration users. We suggest that you review these
security settings for your existing users in case these changes
impacts on the access rights that you are now able to specify.

You might have also noticed that we’ve added the option to
specify that a timesheet user is a Contractor in the Admin > User
> Profile panel. This enables you to filter by Contractor user in
the Admin > Timesheet Export screen. This means that you can
filter and select all Contractors and then select the Process –
No Export option to mark their timesheet records as having been
“processed” for payroll purposes. Typically, you will prepare an
Enquiry report for these Contractors to assist with invoice
reconciliation against their timesheet records.

We’ve improved the layout of the Project and Task Budget panels
(Admin > Project > Finance) to clarify the meaning and logic that
applied to these settings. We’ve also improved the layout of the
Invoice > WIP screen and also implemented a pulldown Settings and
Actions menu to specify what is to be displayed in the WIP
screen.

As is always that case, we’ve made lots of smaller “quality of
life” improvements and fixed a number of bugs that we’ve found
and our users have reported. Keep sending us your suggestions for
improvement. We continue to get great feedback from our users
that they appreciate our ongoing improvement to TimeSite Pro.
