HMS announces new integration between TimeControl and SharePoint
Montreal, June 29, 2017 - HMS Software, the publisher of TimeControl, one of the world's most popular timesheet systems has announced the immediate availability of new link between TimeControl and Microsoft SharePoint. SharePoint by over 100 million users worldwide for collaboration. This latest link allows a full integration of the two products.
In the recently released version 7.1.1 of TimeControl, HMS has significantly enhances the existing link between the TimeControl timesheet and SharePoint to include complete bi-directional data integration. The link allows administrators to determine how to define a project and task from SharePoint lists and what fields will be used to send back from the TimeControl timesheet actual hours, costs or even estimates-to-complete. The link works with both SharePoint on premise or SharePoint Online within Office 365. Information between the two systems can be moved from one to the other automatically in the background on a schedule or on demand as required.
“We have worked with SharePoint for over 15 years,” says Chris Vandersluis, President of HMS Software. “As Microsoft Project Server specialists, we have been very familiar with the powerful and flexible collaboration tools within SharePoint since Project Server starting supporting it in 2002.”
Aside from the intimate data integration now possible between the two systems TimeControl can also integrate into the collaboration environment of SharePoint in other ways. The entire timesheet interface can be displayed within SharePoint itself. Active Directory authentication and single-sign on used by TimeControl can be the same used in SharePoint so users don't have to sign in twice. Also, the timesheet data from TimeControl can be displayed or even blended into SharePoint reports or views from within the SharePoint Business Intelligence Center.
“We have worked in the last several years to find aspects of SharePoint and TimeControl that are natural touchpoints,” explains Stephen Eyton-Jones, Director of Technical Services at HMS. “We have worked with Microsoft on this of course, but also with many of our clients as we have worked together to enable an uninterrupted user experience between TimeControl and SharePoint. This same work has allowed for links to other products like the BrightWork collaborative project management system.”
