time@work and expense@work Version 4.0.9

time@work and expense@work Version 4.0.9 have been released.

This article contains details of the enhancements and fixes contained in this release.

Introduction

Version 4.0.9 will be the last in the 4.0 series to contain enhancements. Further releases in the 4.0 series may resolve bugs, as required, but we are now beginning the development of Version 4.1.

In due course we will publish details of what Version 4.1 is likely to contain. We expect to release Version 4.1 in the third quarter of 2011.

Documentation

Version 4.0.9 contains up-to-date Reference Guides as Help Text in time@work Maintenance and expense@work Maintenance. Both of these guides may also be found in the Documentation Section of the Support Portal.

Demonstration Databases

The demonstration databases for time@work and expense@work have been greatly extended, and are now designed to illustrate many of the enhancements provided in Version 4.0

Notes on these changes to the demonstration databases can be found in the Demonstration Data Section of the Support Portal.

Enhancements

Alternative Analysis Codes can be included in Inquiry Profiles either as Selection Criteria or as selected data fields.

Form Original Submission Row is recorded when an Employee submits or confirms a form. This enables reporting on original claim values despite splitting of forms during authorisation or review, or during approvals.

Notes are no longer mandatory on Forms (but may be marked as mandatory on Form Type and Expense Type). Note that when a database is upgraded to 4.0.9 all Form Types and Expense Types are marked as requiring Notes.
