time@work and expense@work Version 4.7.1 Released

We are very pleased to announce the release of time@work and expense@work Version 4.7.1

For details on upgrading, direct clients should contact systems@work Customer Services. Clients who are managed by systems@work Resellers and Partners should contact their Account Manager.

Version 4.7.1 solves a number of small problems found in the initial release of 4.7 (full details in the Release Notes below).

In addition Version 4.7.1 includes a number of significant enhancements.

Version 4.7.1 Enhancements

There is now an option to append transactions to a current form when importing credit card transactions using Credit Card Import, rather than creating a new form. You may also specify that when appending, the system should create or append to forms based on the accounting period to which transactions belongs. This is a way of ensuring that a form will contain only transactions belonging to one accounting period.

By default, Planning Profiles will now prevent data loss on posting after inadvertent change of granularity (from Day to Timesheet or Account Period). You may suppress this option.

In the absence of a Status column in a Planning Profile, a default Status value is now determined and posted.

There is now an option to prefill a timesheet not only with recent Project/Task combinations but also with Activity Values (except for Analysis Categories marked as Not Validated). This is set by default on a Timesheet Type definition, but it may also be set on an Employee record, or suppressed, including by an Employee if the field is included in My Details.

You may now suppress the use of document level authorisation and review for Timesheets and Forms by Employee. Thus you can ensure that specific Employees must always open a Timesheet or a Form before authorising or reviewing it.

Where Projects and Employees can be selected in grids in the PSW (Ledger Modification, Approvals) the list of available Employees and Projects in the selection tool is determined by the rules that apply when Runtime Parameters are selected, as defined for the Profile (by Data Access Restrictions or Standard Restrictions).

Our next release will be Version 4.7.2 which will be released in the next few weeks with some additional enhancements. Following the release of 4.7.2 we will begin work on Version 4.8, which will be released towards the end of this year.
