HMS Announces Link with Microsoft Project Online

HMS Software, publishers of TimeControl have announced that TimeControl can now be integrated with Microsoft Project Online, Microsoft’s in the cloud subscription version of Project Server.

Montreal, June 19, 2017 - HMS Software, the publisher of TimeControl, one of the world's most popular timesheet systems has announced the immediate availability of a link between TimeControl and Microsoft Project Online. Microsoft Project Online is Microsoft’s in-the-cloud subscription service of Microsoft Project Server.

HMS has maintained a link between TimeControl, its popular timesheet system and Microsoft Project since 1995 and with Project Server since its first launch in 2002. With the addition of Project Online, HMS now extends the possible integrations between the TimeControl and Microsoft Project lines even further.

“Our relationship with the Microsoft Project team is multi-faceted,” says Chris Vandersluis, President of HMS Software. “Creating a link between TimeControl and Project Online was only a matter of time. TimeControl’s auditable multi-purpose timesheet functionality and the ease of access of Project Online make for a perfect combination.”

All versions of TimeControl will include the integration functionality including TimeControl for on-premise installations, TimeControl Industrial and TimeControl Online, HMS Software’s in-the-cloud Timesheet as a Service.

“The bi-directional link between TimeControl and Project Online works much as the link with Project Server,” explains Stephen Eyton-Jones, Director of Technical Services at HMS. “However, while the functionality may look the same to the end-users, the tools used for making the Project Online link are completely different from the on-premise version of Project Server. We worked extensively with Microsoft to ensure we had the tools we needed.”

The automated integration between the products allows tasks, resource information and assignments to move from Project Online to TimeControl and then timesheets can be pre-populated with assignment and task information. The completed and approved timesheets can be automatically sent back to Project Online with the actual progress.

This new link adds to a long list of integrations already included with every version of TimeControl. Project Online now joins the links for Microsoft Project desktop, Project Server, SharePoint, BrightWork, Oracle-Primavera Professional, Primavera EPPM, Open Plan, Cobra, Hard Dollar and VersionOne. TimeControl can support integration with multiple project management tools or even multiple versions of the same project management tool simultaneously.

TimeControl’s multi-function flexibility allows it to support many business requirements at once. Aside from updating tasks in the project management system, TimeControl’s financial-quality controls make it ideal for payroll, HR, billing, job-costing, research tax credits, DCAA compliance and more.
