HMS releases TimeControl 6.9
Montreal, March 16, 2015 HMS has announced the release of TimeControl 6.9. This version is major upgrade from previous versions of TimeControl thanks to the introduction of Variable Length timesheets. Now TimeControl can be configured to support not only weekly but also bi-weekly, bi-monthly, monthly and, custom-length timesheets. Here is more detail on the new and enhanced features available in this version:
Variable Length Timesheet
This is a major evolution in how timesheets are defined in TimeControl. Now, you can select from a number of different lengths of timesheet to better accommodate the process cycle in an organization. Timesheets can now be weekly, bi-weekly, bi-monthly, monthly or custom length and just as in monthly or bi-monthly, the timesheet lengths of each timesheet are no longer required to all be the same length. The new functionality comes with a period generator which will automatically and/or manually create the periods. Administrators are also not stuck with a one-time decision. They can elect to change future timesheet periods to be different lengths so if an organization has always worked with weekly timesheets but wanted to change, they could have 14 day timesheets instead going forward! We know this will make a big difference to how some organizations will configure their TimeControl environment.
Integration with VersionOne
VersionOne is the world-recognized leader in Agile Enterprise Project Management. HMS and VersionOne have teamed together to integrate TimeControl, TimeControlOnline and TimeControl Industrial with the VersionOne online system. Now sprints, backlog items, defects and issues can be updated in TimeControl and the resulting effort completed and remaining work can be sent back to the VersionOne project. Like all TimeControl links, the VersionOne’s integration can be activated at the same time as other integrations so if IT development projects are in VersionOne and other projects are being managed in Primavera or Microsoft Project Server, TimeControl can accommodate them all at once. More information about the VersionOne link can be found at: www.timecontrol.com/use-cases/version-one.
Export Wizard for QuickBooks
TimeControl has supported a link to QuickBooks for years but in TimeControl 6.9 we’ve made configuring that link easier and more intuitive with the QuickBooks Export Wizard. Now administrators can select the accounts to debit and credit for timesheet data themselves in an easy to select manner. The TimeControl export will format the export data in the exact format that Intuit defines for QuickBooks so you can import it immediately.
Many other new and enhanced features
There are many other new features in this version including: Locked columns in the timesheet, A super-user Administrator mode, Performance enhancements and improved backward compatibility with older browsers.
TimeControl version 6.9 is available immediately. Existing users with a current support contract can access the upgrade at no charge at timecontrol.com/support/updates.

It was immediately successful in the project management sector and today is recognized not only as a project management solution, but also as an enterprise timesheet solution in use by companies worldwide.
