Major TSR Release (6.3) – Tons of New Features
We’re very excited to announce a new version of TSR (6.3). This new version includes a lot of new features, so this email may be a bit longer than usual.
So grab a cup of coffee or something else, and read on…
- New module: Expenses
We’ve introduced a new add-on module to TSR, which allows you to add expenses to your time entries. That means that if you for example have had costs such as hotel or mileage or certain products, you can add that to your time entries, for example for reimbursement. It can also be used for items such as billable goods.
Just as with timesheets in TSR, Expenses come with an optional approval workflow. It also comes with build-in reporting for overview of expenses, and also comes with reimbursement reports readymade for signing by employees and management.
You can see how it works in action at www.timesheetreporter.com/support, and select ‘Expenses’ from the main menu.
Italian is now available as a language option when using TSR.
We’ve added a new data field to your time entries called Locations. This is not the same as the default Outlook location field. It is a TSR dropdown field, where you can have a prepopulated list of locations to add to your time entry, for example ‘Client’s office’, ‘Company HQ’, etc. This is added via the Advanced tab on your time entries.
- More user details
You can now add more user details to your users, which you specify yourself. Examples could be SkypeID, Spouse’s name, etc.
- Multiple favorites
It’s now possible to have multiple defined favorites in TSR. You can select between all these in the TSR Outlook User Agent under Advanced. You can also select to only be able to see projects, etc. that you have defined as favorites.
- List time entries in the Outlook user agent
We’ve made a lot of improvements to the list time entries function in the TSR Outlook user agent, including the ability to see total duration of selected entries, plus a lot more.
You can now select if your entry is out-of-office, and use this as an element as well when exporting or approving time entries.
It’s now possible to activate/inactivate activities.
- User groups in export
You can now include users’ user groups when exporting their time entries with TSR DataBridge.
- Back-button on reports
We’ve introduced a Back-button on reports so that you can get back to your search criteria without having to start over.
- Duration of zero
It’s now possible to create time entries with a duration of zero.
- User group on approval screen
You can now use user groups as search criteria on the approval page.
- Matrix view with copy function
We’ve introduced a matrix view of time entries in TSR WebAdmin, which will give you a weekly overview of time entries, including display of total number of hours. This will also make it possible for you to submit all your time entries for the selected week, as well as copy time entries from one week to another.
- Copy listed time entries
In the list time entries function in WebAdmin, you can now copy an existing time entry and create a new one with the same information.
- Plus a lot of other improvements…
You can read more about the above functions at www.timesheetreporter.com/support.
