April 3, 2011 (Powerhomebiz.com) HMS Software has announced the release of TimeControl 6.1. This upgrade of TimeControl advances the 6th generation of one of the world’s best known timesheet systems. Since its first commercial release in 1994 TimeControl has been recognized by some of the largest organizations in the world as the most flexible solution for meeting timesheet challenges. TimeControl is a multi-purpose timesheet, serving requirements for project timekeeping, time and billing and time and attendance from within a single system. TimeControl version 6.1 takes the product to the next level with new features, an extended architecture, enhancements and an exciting new look existing functions.
“We’re very proud of the accomplishment represented by TimeControl 6.1” said Chris Vandersluis, president of HMS Software. “This version brings the new generation of TimeControl launched last year with the release of TimeControl 6 to a whole new level of interface and productivity.”
Enhancements in TimeControl 6.1 include a complete rewrite of the TimeControl Tables into the new TimeControl 6 multi-browser architecture. The changes in Tables and other enhancements has resulted in the removal of 2 of the original 5 ActiveX controls. Now only Administrators with certain requirements will need access to any ActiveX controls in TimeControl.
The TimeControl architecture has now been extended to support the popular open source database MySQL, giving users even more options when creating their TimeControl environments.
An all-new feature, “Personal Pre-load” allows end users to select specific entries they’d like to automatically appear in their timesheets when they’re created. This will work in conjunction with the existing Resource pre-loads which are associated to the assignments and approved TimeRequests which will also add to the timesheet automatically. This feature will avoid the user having to search for entries which they always add to their timesheet manually thus saving precious minutes each week while completing their timesheet.
A number of existing features have been enhanced including Support for Oracle-Primavera Financial Periods and Linking to Microsoft Project Server 2010 and numerous features have been migrated to the TimeControl 6 multi-browser architecture making them easier to access and manage. These include Update License Key, Bulk Delete Charge Codes, Release Structure Updates and the Timesheet Audit Log.
