New Features

Ability to Add Multiple Breaks in a Shift

With this feature you have the ability to assign specific times of the day in which breaks must be taken by the employee. This feature separates the breaks in the shift and displays the exact time the break was taken and the total time of the break, allowing you to easily view it on the timecard dashboard and reports. This addition was primarily added to comply with the California meals and breaks policy.

Full Screen Dashboard

This feature allows you to see the time card dashboard in full screen mode, making it simple to see all columns available on the timecard.

Custom Time Card Report

This feature gives you the flexibility to create your own custom time card report, by selecting only the relevant information you want to view.

Selecting the Start Day in Semi-Monthly Pay Period

Now users that use semi-monthly pay periods, can select their start day. Prior to this, the system only calculated semi-monthly pay periods from the 1st to the 15th and 16th to the last day of the month.

Bulk Time Card Editing

With this feature you can bulk edit employee’s timecards all from one screen.
