Date: May 1st, 2019

Hi there everyone! It is time for another EasyClocking update and we have some news to share with you as well as the items that will be released. Still at the top of our list of priorities, is You (our client). We continue to focus on making changes that will enhance your experience with our product. In this release, we continued to focus on fixing errors and making improvements in our infrastructure rather than creating new features. Kindly take a look at the items that we completed for this update, your feedback is always valuable, we hope that you like the enhancements that were done!

New Features:

  1. “Import Tool” will now have the ability to upload PTO balances: We have added the ability to upload PTO balances for employees. This will definitely help in the initial setup process of your account. Now the import tool supports the ability to upload: Departments, Locations, Positions, Employees, PTO Balances, Projects & Jobs.

Enhancements/Add-ons:

  1. “Bonus Hours” & “Bonus Earnings” can be created from the “Log Request” feature: Bonus Hours and Earnings are now part of the approval process in the Log Request tab.
  2. “Who’s In” tab – Ability to filter “Schedules” column: The schedules column was the only column that did not have any filter options, we have enabled filters for this column.
  3. “Basic Scheduler” view will now default to “Weekly” for first time users: Previously, the software will default to a monthly view when viewing schedules for employees in the ‘Schedules” tab. This would create a lot of traffic when viewing all employees at the same time. Reducing the view to weekly will increase the respond of the software once the request is made to view the schedules. The setting will stay saved to your preferred view.
  4. Reports:
    1. New filter option for the “Absence Type” & “Absence Type Detailed” report: A new filter option has been created on these reports, allows the user to select any absence type they want to view in the report.

    3. New filter options in the “Timelog Audit Trail” and ‘Timelog Audit Trail Detailed” reports: Created 3 new filter options which will show the desire action taken, the new filters are: Created, Modified, or Deleted. These filters will be very helpful in allowing you to know what is the current state of a punch.
    4. “Absent Without Schedule” report will now show reported absences: Previously, this report will only show employees that “did not work” and it should also show employees with reported absences. Now this report will display employees that did not come to work and that also reported absences. Absence name category will also display in the report.

Fixed Errors/Bugs:

  1. “Construction Timecard” issue when making Projects or Jobs inactive: We fixed an issue that was occurring after Projects or Jobs was marked as inactive, the Project or Job will disappear from the employee’s timecard, however, this did not affect the hours recorded as this was still available. Association of the Project and Jobs was not lost either. It was just a UI/UX error that was occurring after the project or job was made inactive.
  2. “Dashboard” – “Paid Time Off” tab issue: We fixed an issue that was occurring when there were too many absence types created, the page would truncate the absences and list of absences will not appear completely. We have corrected the issue and now the absences will show in a separate page.

  6. “User Status” filter grammar error: Fixed grammar issue, the filter used to say “Terminate” but it should say “Terminated”.
  7. “Users” – “Jobs” sub-tab “Create” option grammar change: In the Users tab and Jobs category we changed the word “Create” to say “ Assign Jobs”.
  8. “Job Tracking” tab, job status filters grammar error: In the job tracking tab, there were grammar errors in the “Status Filters” headers, we removed the ‘S” from active and inactive.
