An all-new feature, "Personal Pre-load" allows end users to select specific entries they'd like to automatically appear in their timesheets when they're created. This will work in conjunction with the existing Resource pre-loads which are associated to the assignments and approved TimeRequests which will also add to the timesheet automatically. This feature will avoid the user having to search for entries which they always add to their timesheet manually thus saving precious minutes each week while completing their timesheet.

A number of existing features have been enhanced including Support for Oracle-Primavera Financial Periods and Linking to Microsoft Project Server 2010 and numerous features have been migrated to the TimeControl 6 multi-browser architecture making them easier to access and manage.
