Week of November 10, 2014

In and out times in Audit Trail report

The Audit Trail report now displays the changes made to the in/out times along with the overall duration in hours. For example, if the original in/out time, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., were modified to 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Audit Trail report now displays the changes made to the in/out times.

Improved display of project and task custom fields

If you have multiple custom fields for projects and tasks, from now on, you don’t have to scroll down the page to view them. When you add more than five custom fields, the pop-up window automatically expands to list the remaining custom fields to the right of the window.

More specific error messages in Replicon Mobile

In Replicon Mobile, the error message, “We are experiencing technical difficulties. Please try again later”, will be replaced with error-specific messages.

Fixed issues

  • If you add Indian Rupee as a new currency, the currency symbol is displayed as a question mark when you try to select the reimbursement currency for a new expense sheet.
  • If a project manager does not have editing permissions, they can still add users to the team on the Projects > Team page.
  • If you edit a timesheet and export payroll data from the Payroll > Export page, the report may show the current value, rather than the change in value from the previous export.
  • If you try to edit a time off type from the Administration > Time Off Types > Edit Time Off Type page, the Require Booking field still appears even though it is obsolete.

Week of November 3, 2014

Easier filtering of payroll export data

Payroll managers can now choose when to refresh the data on the Payroll > Export page, using the new Preview button. Previously, each time a filter was changed, the table would automatically update, causing delays when multiple filter changes were required. Now payroll managers can set all the filters at once and then update the list by clicking Preview.

Replicon Mobile iOS

Fixed issues

  • Partial day time off bookings show as a full day on the In/Out timesheet.
  • If you try to view an approved timesheet in the Replicon Mobile iOS app, custom fields may not be displayed.

Week of October 27, 2014

Punch Timesheet report template

A Punch Timesheet report template is now available, that shows paired punch data, including in and out punch times and the longitude and latitude of each punch.

Use either a QR card or Replicon credentials to log in to CloudClock Android

Previously, administrators could allow users to log in to the CloudClock using either a QR code or their Replicon user name and password.

With this option, employees use their QR card to log in, but if a user forgets their card, they can choose to log in using their Replicon credentials.

Week of October 20, 2014

Hide past time off bookings in approval lists

You can now prevent past time off bookings (that is, bookings with an end date of today or earlier) from displaying in the Time Off Booking For Approval list on the Team > Approvals page. To do this, enable the new Only Show Future Bookings in Approval List option in Supervisor permission sets.

Enabling this option can simplify the approval process in cases where supervisors don’t need to approve bookings for time off that occurred in the past, such as bookings for sick days.

Badge count of pending submissions and approvals in Replicon Mobile iOS

In Replicon Mobile iOS, you can now view the badge in the upper right hand corner of the Replicon app icon. The icon displays the total count of pending submissions and approvals.

Week of October 13, 2014

Limited approvers’ view of In/Out timesheets

While approving an In/Out timesheet, client representatives or project managers with the Approve Time for My Projects permission can now view only their assigned projects.

Ability to correct time punches using the CloudClock

In the Android version of the CloudClock, employees with permission to correct punches enabled in their punch entry policy can now use the CloudClock to add, edit, and delete their time punches. And, if they have permission to post punches, they can now transfer their punches to their In/Out timesheet for approval.

All add and edit punch screens include an editable date field that employees can use to change the date of the punch. This is useful for employees whose shifts span midnight who need to add a punch to a different day.

Week of October 6, 2014

Task moving and reordering

It is now possible to change the order in which a project’s tasks display on the Tasks tab by dragging and dropping the task to the desired new location. You might want to change the order in which a project’s tasks display to make it easier to find tasks (for example, by ordering alphabetically), or to reflect each task’s priority or expected start or end date.

You can also move any task from one branch of a project to another. However, you cannot move tasks to different projects.

Time Off

If you plan to transfer a project from Replicon to QuickBooks or Microsoft Project using Replicon’s integration tools, do not alter the order of tasks in Replicon. Tasks can’t be transferred correctly if their order has been changed.

Fixed issues

  • In reports based on the Time Off – Balances or Time Off History templates, values in the Time Off Remaining field may be inaccurate when the report is run for all users.
  • If required timesheet entry level custom fields exist in your system, when users without these fields enabled in their timesheet template try to save a timesheet, the timesheet does not save.

  • If you edit and attempt to save a permission set that is assigned to many users, the save may time out before completing.

Week of September 29, 2014

Ability to filter by multiple departments in the User, Resource, and Work Schedule reports

A standalone Department filter is now available in reports based on the User, Resource, and Work Schedule templates. This filter can be used in place of the Department sub-filter of the User filter, making it easier to report on multiple departments.

Push notifications in Replicon Mobile

From now on, you will receive push notifications in Replicon Mobile for every notification type enabled by your administrator on the web app. For example, if you are an employee, you will receive push notifications when your timesheet is due. As a supervisor, you will receive push notifications when timesheets are due for your approval.

When you receive a push notification message in the notifications center of your device, tap the message to go to the correct app page.

Date field for editing time punches in Replicon Mobile

In Replicon Mobile, a new Date field added to the My Replicon > Clock In/Out page and the Team > Time Punches page allows you to edit the dates for the punches. By editing the date, your night shift employees can ensure that there are no missing punch pairs and all the punches are displayed chronologically.

Single sign-on (SSO) logout in Replicon Mobile

When a single sign-on (SSO) user logs out, users are automatically directed to the logout URL set in the Replicon web app.

Time Off

If the Only include my time off box remains selected, the iCal feed displays only your time off data.

Date field for time punches

A new Date field has been added to the My Replicon > Clock In / Out page and the Team > TIme Punches page that allows you to edit the dates for the punches. By editing the date, your night shift employees can ensure that there are no missing punch pairs.
