elementTIME 7.18 is about adding new functionality to the recording and approving of workflow for excess time.
We also altered some of the rules around how excess time rules can be assigned to individuals and added some new reporting.
We hope you love it as much as we do.
Changes to excess time rules
Staff can now request changes to excess time rules on the fly when they record excess time (provided user permission and the settings have been adjusted of course).
This means they may request a specific period of time where they have worked outside of scheduled hours to be treated by an alternative overtime or TOIL rules.
Settings can be configured that force a user to add a comment if they are working excess time and optionally upload supporting information via attachment.
Note: If a user does change an excess time rule it will only apply to that period of time. Any subsequent periods of excess time will need to also have a rule selected or the default rule for that user will be applied.
The toggle ‘Treat TOIL as special (will not accrue balance by default)’ has been added to TOIL types –
Negative balance threshold on TOIL
When creating TOIL types you can now set a negative balance threshold. This allows users to apply for TOIL up to and including the amount of the negative balance threshold within a payrun period. This allows people swapping non-scheduled and scheduled work days within a payrun to do so with an appropriate TOIL type before the TOIL balance adjustments are confirmed.
More tiny little things
- 7.18.4 Start and end times on timesheet downloads – We fixed a bug where for some users timesheet downloads were not including start and end times.
- 7.18.5 Apply for leave from timesheet – We fixed another annoying bug (yes i know BUG right) where the apply for leave direct from timesheets button was not working for IE and Edge users.
- 7.18.6 Altered design of the link role to user fields – It is possible that you might have noticed but if you had a very long role name then the entire name was not visible in the role name field on the Link user to Role section. This has been sorted. Because most people like to know the name of the job they do – not guess.
- 7.18.7 Improved the validation of system responses – In some cases we thought the system was taking too long to validate responses when making changes to timesheets – so we made things better and fasterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
