TimePunch Release v2.6.723.0

We are pleased to announce the new TimePunch v2.6. This version contains many new features regarding the project management.

In detail the following new features have been implemented:

TimePunch does now contain a customer management extension

It`s now possible to add customer data to TimePunch. The customer data can be assigned to a project or directly to time entries. This can be used to create customer specific and project independent customer reports. Also the customer data can be exported and imported with CSV files.

New project light and a flag for time entries to as important

Every project does now own a project light. The status of this light can either be calculated or manual set to green, yellow and red. Additionally it`s possible to mark time entries as important. Those time entries will be listed in the project report. This can be used to get an overview of critical issues.

View/Analyse the time Budget of a project and the staff members

The already announced time budgets that has been implemented in previous versions can now be analysed per project and staff member. Therefore the remaining project time will be displayed at the time entry dialog.

New reports: Project-overview and project-report

There are two new reports available. The project overview to show a complete list of all projects. The detailed report can be used to get an impression of the remaining time budget, important issues and the customer splitting.

New dialog to enter and amend time records

We have re-implemented the dialog to enter and amend time records, from the very first beginning. All time entries will be displayed for the complete day within the input dialog. It`s not necessary to quit the dialog in order to amend the complete day.

New rights for members that are assigned to the management role

The role full access has been renamed and will now be called Management. All members of that group can edit projects and also access project and time reports of the project members. This gives the members of this role more rights and decreases the overhead for the members of the administration and personnel office.

Further enhancements

TimePunch Release v2.5.122.0

The current release contains the following features:

New PZE time-recording licenses
Starting with the new release the new license types can be used. This pure PZE time-recording licenses for Terminals, Studio and Watcher are cheaper on acquisition, but can only be used with the proper module.

FS#367 – Show overtime in TimePunch Watcher
Additionally to the current working time, the overtime, the monthly working time and the remaining holiday will be displayed. If an overtime Limit has been set, the user will be warned if the overtime-limit gets in reach. In that case the text background color will turn to yellow or red if the overtime limit is reached.

FS#373 – Synchronize with user role “edit”
When synchronizing time-entries no full access rights are needed anymore. If no projects or tasks are changed or created, it is sufficient for the user to be a member of the “edit” role.

Create time entry series with daytime or start and end-time
In the current release also creating time entry series with start and end-time is accessible again. As an alternativ to that, time entry series can also be created with daytime (morning, midday, evening) Input.

Removal of reports
The reports “Project Workload Graph”, “User Workload Graph” und “Aggregated Timesheet” have been removed, because they did not deliver additional benefit to the user.

The release contains the following bug fixes:

FS#366 – Correcting the current displayed overtime
The displayed overtime was misleading, because the working time of the current day has also been considered. Because of this the employee always had the feeling of getting too less overtime displayed. Therefore the current release only uses the overtime until the evening of the previous day.

FS#365/FS#364/FS#326 – Start with /principal parameter
TimePunch Profiles, the Sync-Assistent und TimePunch itself could not always be started with a different user profile by using the parameter /principal. This bug has now been solved.

FS#363 – Extended break was used despite deactivated standard break.
In the previous version the Extended break was used also when the Standard break was deactivated. This was not correct, because the extended break is only valid if also a standard break has been set. This bug has been fixed.

FS#221 – Dialogs should be cancelled with a click to Escape
In the current release all dialogs can be cancelled with a click to Escape. This makes it easier to use TimePunch with the keyboard.

Correction of the time-entry series
In the previous release overlong breaks have not been correctly created, when a time entry series has been created. For the breaks with more than 30 minutes the end time has not been correctly adjusted. That lead to missing times, if the working time model defined a longer Standard break than 30 minutes. This issue has now been fixed.

FS#369 – After modifying a profile it’s no longer selected.
After modifying a profile it’s now selected when the dialog gets closed. This makes working with many profiles easier than before.

TimePunch Release v2.4.416.1

The current release contains the following changes:

New Features:

  • Saving the logon information
    The logon dialog contains a new check box called “Remember me”. Using this field the password will be stored encrypted at the local PC. Therefore a new logon with Password input is not necessary anymore.
  • Create a new time entry series using the day time
    As a new Feature time entry series can now be created without a logon and logoff time. They will be created using the day time. This can be primarily used for creating leave entries. As an example the new entry could be created starting from 2014/01/13 (midday) and ending 2014/01/15 (evening). The concrete start and end times will be extracted from the work time model of the user.
  • Reworked analyse tab for overtime hours
    The analyse window for showing the overtime has been simplified. Instead of showing the current overtime, the overtime limit and the payout data at one side, the data have been devided into two sections. The current overtime will now be shown in a separate info area at the current month. The monthly overtime stays at the Analyse window. And the overtime Limit and payout options have been moved to a new dialog where the corrections can be entered.
  • Month end closing for multiple profiles at once
    In TimePunch Profiles a month-end closing can now be done for multiple TimePunch Profiles at once. In order to do this, one have to select multiple user profiles in TimePunch Profile and select “Month-end closing” at the context menu (right mouse click)
  • Creating a new database
    When creating a new database two standard projects are going to be created. One for recording the working time and a second one for other issues like leave or flexitime.

Corrections:

  • Display the starting values for overtime and illness reports
    In the prior Versions of TimePunch, the starting value for overtime and sick days have not been shown correctly within the monthly report and not for overtime report – but only for the first month. This was only a reporting issue, because TimePunch used the correct value for calculating the follow up months. The Monthly Report and the overtime report have now been fixed.
  • CSV Files, Comma Character
    When the CSV File for importing contained a Comma, then the CSV file could not be imported correctly. In the current release Commas are treated like normal characters. Only a semicolon will be accepted as a field separator.
  • CSV Datei, Project/Task character casing problem
    In prior versions of TimePunch CSV files that contained the same Project and/or Task Name but with inconsistent character-casing leaded to an error message. Now those projects and tasks will be accepted. The first found spelling will be taken and used also for the follow up Projects and Tasks, even if the character casing of those are different.
  • Expiration of the annual subscription
    The message that the license expires in 15 days , was felt by many customers as a nuisance. For an active annual subscription the ad was therefore removed.
  • Continuation an existing time entry after the break
    Up to now, if the current active time entry contained a description, a new time entry has been created after the break has ended. This issue has now been fixed. The current recording will now be continued and the break time correctly added.
  • Synchronize time entries
    When importing the synchronized time entries, the work time model of the employee has not been taken into account. This issue has now been fixed. With the fix the break times will be correctly handled if they are enforced within the work time model.
  • Storing the window position
    When storing the position of the TimePunch window the start menu at the left or right side of Windows, or an active Windows 8 Style UI window has not been correctly calculated. Therefore the TimePunch Window moved to the right, each time TimePunch has been closed and restarted. This issue has now been solved.
  • Switching the database connection with a set password.
    Until now switching the connection to a password protected database could not be handled by the TimePunch Watcher. That leads to the fact, that the TimePunch Watcher had to be restarted. In the current version switching to a Password protected database leads to the logon dialog where the Password can be entered. After successfull entering the Password, the TimePunch Watcher will use the new database Connection without a need for a restart.
  • Correcting the break time for entries that exceeds midnight
    If a new entry have been created that exceeds midnight, the break time have not been splitted correctly for both time entries. This issue has now been fixed and the break time will be splitted correctly for both entries.
  • Updating the TimePunch Windows Client when using the TimePunch Watcher
    If the recording will be started or stopped using the TimePunch Watcher, an update command will be send to the TimePunch Client in order to update the Display and to Show the newly started or ended time recording.
  • Correction of the start project if an empty task has been chosen.
    If in the previous version an empty task has been choosen as the proposed start up project, the TimePunch Watcher did start the recording with a selected task and not as wanted, with an empty one. This issue has now been fixed.
  • Synchronisation of upcoming time entries
    In the current version only time-entries until the current date has been synchronized. This has now been changed in order to include time entries that are up to one year in future.
