  1. Payclass tab: Grammar changes done in the “General” section
    • The following grammar changes were done in the “General” section on the payclass tab.
      • “Hours pay” now says “Hours”
      • What are the maximum continuous hours an employee can work in a shift?
      • What are the maximum continuous hours of Breaks an employee can take in a shift?

  1. Paid Time Off tab: Grammar change – “Year Max” column now says “Max Allowed (yr)”
    • In release 2.39 we added this column, it is a new feature that allows companies to set up a maximum amount of hours employees can take for any PTO categories. It will alert managers an employee is going over the allowed amount of PTO they can take, this will happen at the moment a manager creates an absence or approves an absence request. The original text used to say “Year Max” which was a little confusing, we have change the grammar to say “Max Allowed (yr)”.
  1. Tardy/Late Arrival Report: Enhancement done to the “Tardy” report,  this report will now display late arrivals and also early departure times, report name will now be “Late Arrival & Early Departure”
    • We received requests of including “Early Departure” time in one of the reports and we have listened. We have modified our current tardy report in the miscellaneous tab, it will now include early departure times and we have also changed the name of the report and it is now called “Late Arrival & Early Departure”.

Fixed Errors/Bugs:

  1. Construction timecard: Error when searching for projects & jobs in the employee construction timecard
    • We have fixed an issue that was happening when searching for projects or jobs in the construction timecard, when typing a project or a job the words were not being displayed making very difficult to see what you are entering. We have made adjustments and now the letters will display as soon as the words are being typed.
  1. Construction timecard: Totals error when the option “View In Decimals” is checked
    • When the option to “View In Decimals” is checked, the totals in the Projects and Jobs were not displaying correctly. We have fixed this issue and the totals display the way they should.
  1. Reports:
    • Overtime Hours Approval: Removed unnecessary filter options
      • This report had unnecessary filtering options such as “Employee Status” which has been completely removed, also under the manager status, we have removed the options of “Pending Review” and “Reviewed by Manager” which were filter options that belong to our “Approval Status” report. Now the new filtering options available are:
        • Approved by manager
        • Disapproved by manager
        • Time Expired

    • Overtime Hours Approval: Manager status filters were not working
      • The new filtering options under the “Overtime Hours Approval” report were not working. When applying a filter, the report continued to display all of the punches and not the ones being requested by the filter. Now all 3 filters have been tested and are working as expected.
    • Overtime Hours Approval: Time entries were not being displayed in ascending order
      • When this report was created it would show the punches in descending order, we have made adjustments to the report and now it displays the time entries in ascending order.

    • Manual Punch: Time entries were not being displayed in ascending order
      • This report was not displaying punches in chronological order (ascending), we have corrected the issue and it will now display the punches in ascending order.
    • Earnings Details: Modifications have been made to this report and now it will display Comp-time hours, separate custom absences, add bonus earnings correctly.
      • This report was added in release 2.39, when it was released the report did not show Comp. Time totals, it was not grouping Bonus Earnings or Absences totals together. We have fixed these issues and the report is showing all of these earn codes.
    • Timecard Detailed: Bonus Earnings will now be included in this report.
      • This report was not showing Bonus Earnings, it was displaying a “did not work” line in the report. Issue has been fixed and now it displays Bonus Earnings correctly.
