  Data Audit List Enhancement
Along with the updates in the Data Audit List Report and Mobile Location Tracking Report, we’ve also made similar changes to the Data Audit List page itself. The upgrades are as follows:

iii. To display Clocking Address in 'Location' column

  Manage Terminal – New Function: ‘Download Transaction Logs From USB’
Next up is a release catered to users using FingerTec terminals in TimeTec TA. Specifically, it’s useful for companies that may have terminals with no connection (or unstable connection) to the Internet. To mitigate this situation, we have now added a function that enables Admins to ‘Download Transaction Logs From USB’.

Thus, you can export transaction data from the terminal to a USB flash disk (.dat file) and transfer the disk to a connected site before uploading the data to TimeTec TA. However, please note that before you proceed with this, you need to add your FingerTec Terminal and the relevant users beforehand.

i. Manage Terminal - New option to ‘Download Transaction Logs from USB’
ii. Select File, Date and User ID to download transaction logs
  Demo Account– Enhanced Welcome Message
Before purchase, it’s essential to know if an application suits your company. Thus, to assist in your product evaluation, TimeTec has always offered a free 30-day trial subscription, with the full range of features available. On top of that, users can also take a quick self-guided tour of the Demo account for each TimeTec solution.

In case visitors require some hints on how to proceed after the Demo login, we’ve recently enhanced the Welcome message pop-up. A new set of slides will highlight the various options or features that they can explore.

  Enhancements for Wifi Access Point
Several months back, we introduced a new mobile clocking method for users, known as Wifi Clocking. This option allows users to clock-in via smartphone as long as they are connected to an assigned pre-enrolled Wifi Checkpoint.

Since then, we’ve been tweaking things to address issues and improve performance. The list of changes made this month are shown as below:

i. Wifi Access Point- Assign Users/Divisions to Checkpoint

    Wifi Clocking can now be assigned by Division
    Select the new ‘Organization Structure’ tab to assign by Division or select ‘Assign Users’ tab
    Added an ‘Assigned Divisions’ column

ii. Manage System Roles & Admin - System Roles > Device > Wifi Access Point

    Updated module rights for ‘Assign Users/Divisions’
    New ‘Add’ permission

iii. Wifi Access Point – Allow users to add/update Wifi Access Point from Web application

Previously, Admins only have the option of using the Mobile App to add/register Wifi Access Points. To circumvent problem in situations where a Wifi Access Point has multiple MAC addresses, we’ve recently added the function to allow Admins to also perform this from the Web. Thus, you can input or specify the exact MAC address that needs to be registered for Wifi Clocking purposes. Click on the new Add (“+”) button to do so.

Thereafter, users can also update the access points and MAC address from the Web.

  Approval module– Allow attachments for Overtime Approval Request
Within TimeTec TA, there is an Approval module which enables Admins to setup Overtime Approval rules. Following that, assigned employees can apply for Overtime and these requests are then approved or rejected by their Manager/Admin, all through the system.

Following customer’s request, we’ve enhanced this process, and users can now add attachments (pdf or images) when they are applying for Overtime Approval. Please refer to the screenshots below for more details:

i. Add Overtime Request Pop-up
ii. Request Details Pop-up
  Leave Type Module Optimization
We’ve also improved the interface for Leave Type module: By default, the delete button will now always be displayed for all leave types. However, only the Admin is able to delete the leave type if it is not in use.
  Customise User Duty Roster – New ‘Export’ function
Next, we move on to Customise User Duty Roster, one of the key modules in TimeTec TA. Following the introduction of a Monthly View in July; this month, we’ve released a new Export function for the individual User Duty Roster. To utilize the function; click Export > select file type (.xlsx or .txt) > select duration > select user(s) > export.

This comes in handy if you need to keep archives or require a quick template file to customise the upcoming duty rosters. Just make the required changes and you can use this amended file for the corresponding ‘Import Roster’ function.

i. Export button
ii. Export Roster selection
  Company: Profile Field- Added Display Settings For Staff Contact Info
Additionally, we’ve introduced a new function called Staff Contact Information Display Settings. If you ever wanted to change or customise the information shared with all employees in their Staff Contact module, this is for you. Previously, the system uses a standard template for all subscribers but with the current update, Admins will be able to choose up to a maximum of ten relevant data fields from users’ profiles (Personal Information section) and adjust the sequence arrangement.

Go to Company > Profile Field > Click on ‘Staff Contact Information’ button to access the settings window. Please refer to the screenshots below for more details:

i. Staff Contact Information Settings button in Profile Field
ii. Display Settings- Drag to the right column to display in Staff Contact
iii. Staff Contact View
iv. “Edit Staff Contact Display” in System Role
