Publishers of TimeControl, one of the world's most popular timesheets delivers a major release of the TimeControl timesheet system

Montreal, September 2, 2014 - HMS Software, publishers of TimeControl, the world's most flexible timesheet system has announced the appointment of QuantumPM of Denver, Colorado as a full-service TimeControl dealer.

Montreal, November 17, 2014 HMS Software, the publishers of TimeControl, the world's most flexible timesheet system announced today that it has begun shipping TimeControl version 6.8. This is a major update to the TimeControl product line with significant enhanced and new functionality.

"In this version, we are very excited to include a new module we have talked about for some time," said Chris Vandersluis, President of HMS. "The Accruals Module will allow TimeControl administrators to automate functions such as banked time or calculated overtime and more. Version 6.8 also includes added functionality to Expenses and Timesheets to allow you to insert your own documents (such as receipts) and a new Menu Editor that gives you even more flexibility over the TimeControl menus!"

TimeControl Accruals Information

TimeControl 6.8 includes a wide range of new and enhanced features. Some of the most notable improvements include:

Accruals module

TimeControl 6.8 includes a new Accruals module which allows Administrators to create a rules-based accrual of time into different elements of TimeControl tables. There are 4 different types of Accrual rules now possible:

  • A scheduled rule that is based on static values in the employee tables

  • A scheduled rule that is based on values in the timesheets being posted

  • A rule executed during posting that is based on the timesheet values

  • A scheduled rule that looks at rate-code values

TimeControl menus now editable

TimeControl has always allowed items in the menu to be secured using User Profiles. Now, with TimeControl 6.8, administrators are able to add their own menu items directly to the TimeControl menu using the Menu Editor or move existing items from one tab to another to match their own requirements.

Add receipts to an expense line item

TimeControl 6.8 allows multiple files to be uploaded and saved within each expense line item or to the entire timesheet. An unlimited number of scanned or photographed documents can be attached to expenses and saved with the Expense Line or at the timesheet level. This will likely be most popular for those who need to attach receipts to their TimeControl expense reports.

Clickable dashboards

As of TimeControl 6.8, on dashboard elements where appropriate such as the Personal Status view, users are able to click on a link which will bring them directly to the appropriate area or element of TimeControl.

Filter resources during Project Management import

TimeControl 6.8 allows the project manager to set a filter to not transfer certain resources from the project management system. This could allow hiding certain types of resources such as generic resources from being automatically added to the TimeControl Resource Table.

There are many more enhancements to TimeControl in this release. Existing clients with an active support contract or a subscription to TimeControl Online will receive the new version at no cost. Find out more about TimeControl 6.8 at or talk to HMS about your timesheet needs at or
