What's New in Version 7.3?
TimeControl and TimeControl Industrial version 7.3 are major upgrades to TimeControl with significant new and enhanced features in both the web and Mobile App systems. HMS is delighted to release this update to TimeControl.
Here is more detail on the new and enhanced features you’ll be seeing in this version:
TimeControl Mobile App Expenses
The TimeControl Mobile App is a free App designed to work on both Android and iOS (Apple) devices. This version of the TimeControl Mobile App provides big enhancements. You can now add expense items to any line in your timesheet. Each timesheet line item allows you to add an unlimited number of expense items and each item is associated both to the charge and a non-labor resource type. You can also attach multiple receipts as photos or files to each expense item.
The TimeControl Mobile App now lets you attach multiple items to your timesheet. TimeControl lets you use your device to select photos, videos, to take a picture from your camera or even access files that are available to your device on Google Docs, Dropbox, iCloud or OneDrive.
Mobile Single Sign-On (SSO)
The TimeControl Mobile App supports your corporate Single Sign On environment using OpenID. Logins can be redirected to your organization’s Single Sign On Environment which authenticates the user and allows The TimeControl Mobile App to access your TimeControl or TimeControl Online environment.
All TimeControl list views are now group-able using new Options screens. Users can select visible fields and multiple levels of database grouping to make their own hierarchies of data. This helps organize data very quickly into formats that are familiar to the user and easy to navigate
TimeControl’s Filter functionality is used everywhere in TimeControl. You’ll find filters in the configuration of who can access what data, how reporting works or how Validation Rules work. While TimeControl’s filter functionality is infinitely flexible by allowing direct database controls, the introduction of Advanced Filtering allows much more complex filters to be created within the Interface itself, giving much more control to Administrators in how filters and business validation rules are created.
Time-off Bank Auditing
TimeControl supports multiple banks of time for each employee. Vacation, Personal Time or Sick Leave are common categories but banks of time can also be used for tracking training, premiums, or other time. New auditing functionality and auditing log reports HR and TimeControl Administrators more control to validate bank values.
New Dashboards and Reports
There are a number of new reports and dashboard views in this version including new pie charts and compliance views for the dashboard, new auditing reports and costing reports in the Report Interface. Of course the Report Designer allows you to take any default report and create your own variant if you’d rather not start from a brand new empty report when creating your own.
Send Scheduled Reports by Email
TimeControl reports can now be delivered by email on a schedule. Choose from sending an email on a schedule of your choice with a PDF attachment or just sending a direct link to an encrypted server-stored file
There’s so much more. We’ve improved performance, added budgeted hours and costs to the Charge Table and Project Table, extended where the Searchable Interface works and more.
