For the selection out of a large number of projects, there is an improved project selection now: This new selection provides an additional search and the optional page by page display of the results. We recommend using the selection for accounts with approximately 100 active projects and more. Accordingly, this option is only displayed in the settings for clients with a larger number of projects: This feature can be enabled in the category View of the settings, under the entry Optimize selection for large number of projects.
The time models and the calculation of overtime are now included in the normal production. The overtime calculation is still disabled by default: The entry to turn this feature on is now accessible on the first page of the settings under General and says: Calculation of overtime (work time models).
The support for international date formats and other country-specific formats has been improved. Number formats are also better adapted to the location of the user now. Just click on tab 'General' in the settings to adjust your preferred language and the country. These settings affect only the current date and number format - the display language does not change.
Many thanks for the notes and suggestions for the calculation of overtime! Despite the advanced stage of development, we will try to consider as many requests as possible. Now the calculated overtime is exported together with the working hours - for PDF and Excel. For employees without a time model working time is exported as usual (without target time / actual time). The overtime calculation is still turned off by default: You can turn it on in the settings under 'View'.
Business ratio values (like travel expenses or driven miles) can be exported now. Simple select the appropriate option at the export of the time log (time sheet). With business ratios, you can define all types of numerical quantity values for your timekeeping, which are stored together with the hours of work. Business ratio values are turned off by default: Please enable this feature in the settings under 'view'.
As announced the overtime registration and the associated time models can be tested in a beta version now. Time models are used to define the daily working hours. For the calculation of target hours, actual hours and overtime the defined time models are assigned to the users. The calculation and display of overtime is disabled by default: If you want to use time models and overtime calculation in the beta version in your time tracking, you can enable it in the settings in the 'View' tab.
A public holiday calendar has been added to the online time sheet. The holidays for your time sheet can be created and edited individually in the settings.
Over the years the settings has become more and more comprehensive. So we have decided to restructure the configuration options and split it into sections. Now the usual settings for time tracking and project tracking can be found under 'General', 'View' and 'Security'. On this occasion we also unified the changing of the password: it is now for all users also in the settings.
Capture of business ratio values like travel expenses, mileage, materials consumption etc. is possible now. These values are assigned to time entries and projects and are easy to configure, so you can define your own business ratio types. Business ratios are disabled by default: If you want to use this feature in your time tracking system, please enable it in the settings under 'view'.
Staff members can now be assigned to projects as participants. The project lists of the users are then adjusted accordingly and the project is only selectable for project participants. By default all staff members are project participants: So you can also proceed as normal and use the project time tracking without the administration of project members too.
The maintenance work could have been performed without significant disruption of the ongoing operations.
Maintenance work is scheduled on Thursday, 02.02.2012 between 00:00 AM and 06:00 AM and on Thursday 09.02.2012, between 00:00 AM and 06:00 AM. Goodtime will be unreachable for several times for short time within the given time frame. We ask for your understanding!
The surface of the time tracking system has been revised in some minor details.
For example, sorting tables by columns has been added:
Now all tables can be sorted according to various columns on
ascending or descending order.
The interface for entering time entries has changed: With the option 'keep the view open' creating time entries 'in series' should be more efficient. The feedback from the user (as always: Many thanks at this point) has prompted us to replace this option with an additional button.
Several other minor changes should facilitate the daily work with Goodtime.
Project data can be exported as Excel files now. The surface for the project time data export is similar to the working hours export. Project time of selected projects can be exported at once. The period can be chosen on a weekly or monthly basis or by year. All time data are summarized in an Excel file, the projects are broken up into single Excel spreadsheets.
