HMS Releases TimeControl Version 7

One of the world's most popular timesheets undergoes a major evolution

Montreal, August 29, 2016 - HMS Software, publishers of TimeControl, the world’s most flexible timesheet system has announced that it has released TimeControl version 7. This version contains brand new features and numerous extensions to existing features.

TimeControl 7 Multi-Line Edit Timesheet

Enhancements to TimeControl version 7 include:

Multi-line edit timesheet
The TimeControl 7 timesheet has been completely rewritten to allow all cells in the timesheet to be edited simultaneously. In previous versions, a single line had to be edited at a time due to the many customizable validations that are tracked on each cell and each line. We have determined methods to accomplish the same thing while allowing all the lines to be changed at once. For those with timesheets that have a large number of pre-loaded tasks, this will be a welcome change.

Gantt Views
TimeControl 7 now allows you to view projects, tasks or assignments in graphical Gantt charge views. This gives users an easier perspective into data they have access to and to highlight potential assignment challenges in the coming days. The view is highly configurable and is accessed from either TimeControl’s Reporting tab or the MyAssignments tab of each user's Options page.

Calendar Views
TimeControl 7 introduces a brand new view into assignments with a calendar view. The view can include assignments and/or TimeRequests™ and can be access from either the reporting view or from right inside the TimeRequest Approval screen. Now a supervisor with multiple requests for vacations in a given period can quickly pop up a calendar to see them graphically displayed and can distinguish between draft, released for approval, approved and rejected requests by using different colors for each type. And…

There are more than 40 more exciting new and improved features in TimeControl 7 that we'll be talking more about in the next few days.

TimeControl version 7 is available immediately. Find out more about the new features at Existing users with a current support contract can access the upgrade at no charge at TimeControlOnline users will be updated automatically in the coming weeks.
