TimePunch Patch



This patch for TimePunch 3.6 requires an update of the server and modules.

The following features have been provided:

  • TimePunch knows a new license type “PZE Terminal Light” from this version on.

    This license is intended for employees who only book their time at the terminal but do not have online access, e.g. to apply for vacation or use the self-disclosure function.

  • FS#1042 – Create a new employee and copy settings

    Copying new employees when creating them in TimePunch TEN now works again.

  • Performance Improvement in Reporting

    By compressing the transferred report data, the performance could be increased considerably.

TimePunch 3.6


Standalone Version:http://www.timepunch.de/download/TimePunch_3.6.211.0.exe
Server Version:http://www.timepunch.de/download/server360/TpAppServer_3.6.208.0.exe

Finally it’s time: TimePunch 3.6 is online!

The following features were implemented in the application server:

  • FS#1005 – Multi-client capability
    As of TimePunch 3.6, it is possible to run multiple clients on a single application server. Thus different companies can be installed and administered independently on one server. This is important when several companies share the same IT infrastructure.
    The subitems FS#742, FS#968, FS#1006 to FS#1014 also belong to this point.

The following features were implemented in the management module:

  • FS#1003 – New payment method: Wages paid up to max. hours
    Starting from this version, the hourly wage can also be paid up to a maximum number of hours. If the employee works less than the maximum number of hours, he or she is paid only the number of hours that he or she worked.
  • FS#1032 – Pause bookings also without target time
    In TimePunch TEN, the mandatory break can now also be stored for days without an explicit target time. This means that the mandatory break can also be booked on Saturdays or Sundays, for example.
  • FS#1031 – Export to DATEV wage and salary with monthly data
    To standardize the data export, the monthly data is exported to DATEV Wages and Salaries instead of the daily data from this version on.
  • FS#1019 – Display of the current daily working time
    The current time entry for the current day is now also added to the analysis in the “Working time on” field.
  • FS#1016 – Illegal import of time data
    When importing time data from a CSV file, the system now also checks whether the imported data lies within the permissible booking frame of the project.
  • FS#1004 – Working time posting to previous project (TP TEN)
    For TimePunch TEN, it is now also possible to book working time bookings at the terminal for the last selected project. Thus, activities started at the studio, after a break at the terminal, can be continued without selecting the project again.

The following errors were fixed in the Datafox module/cutter module:

  • FS#1033 – Zombie Transaction
    For customers the Datafox Service and/or the Cutter Service was partially terminated without motivation. The problem was a zombie transaction that caused the service to crash. This problem has now been fixed.

TimePunch Patch



This patch for TimePunch 3.5 fixes minor problems that occurred with different installations.

The following issues have been fixed:

  • FS#1029 – Overnight entries extended from 6 hours to 10 hours

    Inactive time entries, e.g. due to leaving the PC switched on, are only terminated automatically after 10 hours after the patch and not after 6 hours as before. This prevents time entries that are started in the morning from not being saved as time entries after a long meeting day because the employee has not been at the PC for more than 6 hours.

  • FS#1027 – Action disappears when stopping

    When stopping the time entry at the online module, the currently set activity was also deleted. This led to incorrect time entries when logging in again, e.g. after the pause, which is why this behavior was adapted.

  • FS#1025 – Arbitrary activity selection

    When changing the project when changing a time entry in TimePunch Management, a seemingly arbitrary activity was partially selected. At this point the sorting was adjusted so that the first activity of the project will be selected again in the future.

  • FS#1021 – Payroll accounting daily report / monthly report / tabular

    In a very special configuration of the working time model in connection with the calculation of the 13-week average for public holidays, illness and vacation, an incorrect number of target hours was displayed in the report. The calculation in TimePunch was not affected by this.

TimePunch Patch



This patch for TimePunch 3.5 fixes minor problems that occurred with different installations.

The following issues have been fixed:

  • FS#1017 – Error in the calculation of annual leave

    The annual vacation was calculated wrong in the current version 3.5. Leave that was in the future was not added to the annual leave. This bug is now fixed.

  • FS#1018 – Error in the pause display

    The pause was displayed incorrectly if a regular entry with start and end time was created on any day after a pure entry with time duration. Also this problem is now solved.

  • FS#1020 – Book a half day holiday for half a holiday

    When booking half a day of vacation on half a holiday (such as Christmas) it could happen that only a quarter of a day of vacation was booked. This problem is also solved with the current release.

TimePunch v3.5


Standalone Version:http://www.timepunch.de/download/TimePunch_3.5.126.1.exe
Server Version:http://www.timepunch.de/download/server350/TpAppServer_3.5.116.0.exe

Finally it’s time: TimePunch 3.5 is online!

The following features were implemented in the management module:

  • FS#920 – New booking type – on-call service
    As of this version, it is possible to book a new time entry with the on-call service booking type. The on-call time can be calculated as a percentage of the working time. For example, if 8 hours and 25% are calculated, 2 hours are booked for the employee as working time. It is also possible to export to DATEV and Lexware.

  • .
  • FS#590 – Multiple day entries without start and end time
    Now it is also possible to book several-day time entries, e.g. for vacation or illness with the pure duration (e.g. 1 day or half a day). This makes the system less sensitive to changes in the employee’s working time model.

  • FS#998 – Overwrite the used wage type
    The wage type used for export for DATEV and Lexware can now be explicitly overwritten in the activity. This also makes it possible to use your own wage types that are not defined in TimePunch – for example, for special activities that are remunerated specifically.

  • FS#996 – New field “Additional employee information”
    A new free text field for additional employee information exists in the employee profile. Here you can enter employee data that would otherwise not fit into any other field.

  • FS#995 – Breakdown of paid overtime hours by individual months
    When overtime is paid, TimePunch now displays the months in which the employee paid overtime. This information is of particular interest to the tax consultant, who must assign the paid hours to the individual months.

  • FS#983 – Export interface to diamond software for exporting operating data
    As of version 3.5, TimePunch can export operating data to diamond software. So the booked times can be used directly in diamond software for invoicing.

  • FS#966 – Record time entries with duration only
    Previously it was only possible to enter time entries with a start and end time. In the current version it is also possible to record time entries with the pure working time. This simplifies the recording especially in the service sector.

  • FS#886 – Invoiced time entries should no longer be changeable
    Time entries that have already been flagged as billed may no longer be changed with the current version. This prevents times that have already been billed from being overwritten accidentally.

  • FS#999 – Continued payment for wage earners (13 weeks average)
    The continued payment of wages for wage earners was also extended to include bookings for illness and public holidays.

The following features have been implemented in the Cutter module:

  • FS#969 – Pause calculation in accordance with the law (configurable)
    In the current version, the cutter distinguishes between two calculation methods for mandatory breaks. In the simplified variant, all working times of the current day are used to calculate the mandatory break. In the variant according to the German Working Time Act, care is taken to ensure that the break is taken within the 6-hour working time. This means that if an employee takes a 30-minute break after the 7th hour, an additional 30 minutes are deducted.

  • FS#918 – recovery break from 15 minutes, or adjustable
    According to the German Working Time Act, a break is only regarded as a rest break after 15 minutes. Breaks during this time are purely work interruptions and therefore do not contribute to the employee’s recovery. Accordingly, breaks below the set time are not counted as mandatory breaks. Thus e.g. smoker breaks can be distinguished from the obligation break.

  • FS#970 – Default framework working time model
    A new installation automatically generates a framework working time model that complies with legal requirements.

In addition many other minor problems have been fixed and corrected.

  • FS#383 – Add duration – not the end time
  • FS#619 – Cutter logs changes from locked months
  • FS#854 – Edit start and end not possible in Spanish format
  • FS#888 – Cutter does not consider projects without selected activity
  • FS#957 – General activities are not considered in the cutter
  • FS#967 – New overview ‘Documentation’ in the Application Server
  • FS#972 – Display booking type on-call service in calendar in color
  • FS#981 – Validation problem when requesting leave
  • FS#997 – Duplicate pause entry when using the server
  • Improved performance when accessing Microsoft Access databases

TimePunch Patch 3.4.429.0



This patch for TimePunch 3.4 fixes some minor problems that occurred during different installations.

The following new features have been implemented:

  • FS#959 – New holiday for Berlin: “International Women’s Day”

    In Berlin, 8 March was set as International Women’s Day on 24 January 2019 as a public holiday. After this update, the new holiday will be visible for the federal state of Berlin from 2019.

The following issues have been fixed:

  • FS#965 – Edit time entries with deleted activity

    An error has been fixed that overwrites the task of the time entry if it has already been deleted from the project. This occurred whenever the project dialog was opened from the time entry with a deleted activity.

  • FS#958 – Calculation of the hours quota for new projects without time entry

    The calculation of the hourly quota was incorrect for new projects without an existing time entry. TimePunch threw an error, that there is no more time quota available.

  • FS#961 – The selected activity is lost in the Watcher from time to time

    The activity set in the TimePunch Watcher was lost from time to time after a break. This problem should now be solved.

Important:The new holiday in Berlin requires a database update after installation

TimePunch v3.4


Standalone Version:http://www.timepunch.de/download/TimePunch_3.4.407.0.exe
Server Version:http://www.timepunch.de/download/server340/TpAppServer_3.4.327.0.exe

Finally the time has come: TimePunch 3.4 is online!

The following features have been implemented on the web frontend:

  • FS#910 – Smartphone optimized page of the TimePunch Application Server

    The website of the Application Server has been optimized for the smartphone in this release. It thus offers an ideal introduction to the existing TimePunch modules.

  • FS#909 – Smartphone optimized page of the module self-disclosure

    The website of the self-disclosure module was also optimized for the smartphone. Every employee can now also get mobile information about his or her working hours.

The following features have been implemented in the Management Module:

  • FS#952 – New category “not billable”

    Starting with version 3.4, each time entry can also be marked as “not billable” in TimePunch. Times that are marked as “not billable” are displayed in the corresponding billing-relevant reports without an invoice amount.

  • FS#950 – Export of wage data to Lexware wage+salary

    The working hours, additional times and salaries of the employees can now be exported not only for DATEV, but also for direct import into LEXWARE.

  • FS#949 – Prevent projects with a time limit from being overbooked (optional)

    With a project setting, it can now be prevented that the target times stored in the project can be overbooked by the employees. Employees can thus be prevented from booking projects over the assigned target time.

  • FS#948 – Implementing the holiday editor in TimePunch Management

    The holiday editor is implemented in the management module with this release. The separate program for editing public holidays is therefore no longer necessary and is no longer part of TimePunch.

  • FS#291 – Internet calendar integration option

    TimePunch now has the possibility to import Internet calendars (e.g. from Google) directly. Thus, other country holidays can also be made available more quickly and used in TimePunch.

  • FS#937 – New report: birthday list

    In TimePunch there is a new report in version 3.4 which shows the birthdays of all employees in a birthday list.

  • FS#924 – New report: Holiday overview for the whole year

    Since version 3.4 a new vacation overview has been added, with which the annual vacation of all employees is clearly displayed on a DIN A3 sheet. With the export function to PDF, the report can also be printed on DIN A4.

  • FS#780 – Report customization: Vacation days in report users/projects/distribution

    Report “Users/Projects/Distribution” now also contains the vacation days posted to a project.

The following features have been implemented in the Calendar module:

  • FS#908 – holiday replacement in calendar module fixed adjustable

    To make it easier to apply for leave, each employee can enter a permanent representative in his or her profile. This substitute is then always used as standard for leave requests.

  • FS#906 – Display the number of vacation days in the calendar mails

    The number of vacation days is sent with all relevant mails so that all participants in the vacation workflow can immediately see how many working days the employee wants to take vacation.

  • FS#901 – Display of previous approvals

    What is new now is that all previous applications can be viewed with rejection or approval by the respective approver. This gives the approver an even better overview of all applications and previous approvals.

  • FS#860 – Force holiday replacement

    From version 3.4 it is now also possible to force a holiday replacement when applying. Thus, an application can only be made if a substitution has been entered in the application.

  • FS#729 – Set administration for vacation cancellation in CC

    If an employee withdraws an already approved leave, not only the supervisor but also the personnel office is now informed, if a corresponding email address has been stored in the settings.

  • FS#693 – Set the number of displayed rows in the table

    The number of table lines displayed can now be set in the calendar settings.

  • FS#636 – Mail to representative if the request was approved

    If a representative has been deposited in the leave request, the representative will also receive a confirmation e-mail as soon as the leave has been approved.

  • FS#626 – Distinction between “weekend” and “day off”

    In the calendar, “weekends” and “days off” are now marked with a different color. This makes it easier to distinguish between the two types of absence.

The following problems have been fixed in the Calendar module:

  • FS#700 – New booking type “Absent” must be displayed in calendar.

    Time postings with the posting type “Absent” are now also displayed in color in the calendar.

  • FS#943 – Incorrect display in group calendar for half a holiday day

    The representation of half vacation days on days with an entered half holiday was corrected in the current version.

  • FS#883 – calendar can only be scrolled 1 month further

    When applying for leave, the monthly calendar can now be moved more than one month into the future.

  • FS#832 – The calendar does not consider smoking breaks

    The calendar now ignores smoking breaks and displays the entry of the current day correctly.
