Changes in build

bullet Fixed the issue whereby you were unable to publish appointments from Outlook to database.


Changes in build

bullet Auto Fill or Auto Complete feature - Added feature to type in the first few characters of your project or activity in the drop down boxes so that the drop down field pulls up all the matching items from which you can choose one to auto-complete. This feature might come very handy if you have hundred of projects/activities to choose from the drop down list (so finding one can be time consuming (relatively speaking.) My specialty app programmer has created a way to enter 4-5 characters in a field, press enter, and it pulls up the first 10 matching items.

To enable auto-fill/auto-complete feature, the administrator needs to enable the option 'Allow members to type in into Project/Activity drop down boxes for auto complete' under Team TimeSheet Manager > Form Options.


Changes in build

bullet New comprehensive help manuals for timesheet Administrators (TeamTimeSheetManager.pdf) and Client Users (TeamTimeSheetClient.pdf) included in the setups.

To invoke or show the PDF manual on Admin add-in, go to Outlook > Team TimeSheet Manager tab > Help Topics.
To invoke or show the PDF manual on Client User add-in, go to Outlook > Calendar or Task folder > Team TimeSheet toolbar > My Settings menu > Help Topics.

or you can also download the PDF manuals from below
Administrator Help Manual
Client User Help Manual

bullet Fixed the issue where timesheets from other users show up in the search/report in Team TimeSheet client add-in.


Changes in build

bullet New revamped 'Search TimeSheets' tool. A variety of search parameters are predefined to help you find your published timesheets easily and quickly. You can also limit the search to your published timesheets only by choosing 'My TimeSheets' scope.

Time Period: Choose a time period from the followings under which the search will be confined:
This week
Last Week
Next Week
This Month
Last Month
Next Month
This Year
Last Year
Date Range...

Report Type: Choose a report type from the predefined ones below:
TimeSheets Starting
TimeSheets Ending
TimeSheets Reported
TimeSheets Ongoing
TimeSheets Approved
TimeSheets Declined
TimeSheets Pending Approval
TimeSheets Completed
TimeSheets with Empty Project
TimeSheets with Empty Activity

Search By: Further refine the search by filtering through keywords or using one of the following timesheet fields: Project/Activity, Reported By, Duration, Billable Hours, Importance, Custom Lists.

Group By: You can choose to group the timesheets either with:
Project, Activity, Reported By, Importance, Categories

Each timesheet in the search result is color coded to reflect the current state of the timesheet such as if it approved, decline or approval pending. Now, you can easily recognize which timesheets require the attention or review, and plan actions accordingly.

With this version, you are free to choose which particular timesheet fields/columns show up in the search result and report. Just click the 'Fields' button, and choose the wanted columns to include.

You can re-arrange the columns by drag-and-drop to get the kind of view you want. And the display order of the columns will be retained in subsequent sessions.

You can export cases to files in the following document types:
Adobe PDF, XPS, Word 97-2003 DOC, Word 2007-2016, DOCX, RTF, ODT or HTML.

You can control what timesheet data are included in the exported files by customizing the 'Print' template under Team TimeSheet Manager > Templates Manager.

bullet New Summary Reports tool allows for Four modes of views or editing. List, HTML, HTML Editable and Grid. It uses the same sets of search filters discussed above.

For example, here is what the HTML report view look like:

And here is what the Grid (Excel) report view looks like:

For finer control over the output of report, you can choose which fields (including custom fields) are to be included in the report. You can sort the timesheets by clicking at the column headers, as well as also re-arrange the columns in the list view according to certain sequence of your choice, and even set the width of the columns. These formatting from the List view panel will be inherited on other tabs - HTML, editable HTML and Grids. In short, the List tab acts like a template to the other three tabs.

Once you get the look and feel of your report, you can then export the report to one of the many popular document formats supported such as Microsoft Excel sheets, Word documents, Adobe PDF, Rich Text or web page etc.

bullet The Audit Manager tool has also been revamped for quicker administrative actions on the published timesheets. In fact, the interface and control sets remained the same with the new search/report tool (described above). The only additional features in Audit Manager tool being able to edit, delete, approve or decline timesheets published by your users. You can review the timesheets and make necessary changes and amendments before accepting the timesheets for further processing (say, for payroll).

1. Detail Info - Click this to view finer detail information of the selected timesheet (as available in the project database) in a new window.

2. Edit - Click this to edit the published timesheet. Depending on the permissions as set by the administrator under Team TimeSheet Manager > Audit Options panel, you can edit or make amendment to the published timesheets stored in the project database directly.

3. Print - Click this to print the selected timesheets using the 'Print' template (as defined under Team TimeSheet Manager > Templates Manager). if you select a single timesheet to print, it will show you the print dialog option, where you can customize the layout, paper size etc. However, if you choose multiple timesheets, it will print directly using the default settings without displaying any Print options.

4. Delete - Click this to permanently remove the selected timesheets from the project database.

5. Approve - Click this to approve the published timesheets from users. Approved timesheets appear with a green back color for easy recognition. Based on the choice, the add-in may send an alert to the owner (user) of the timesheet informing about the approval.

6. Decline - Click this to decline the published timesheets from users. Based on the choice, the add-in may send an alert to the owner (user) of the timesheet informing about the decline.

7. Export to PDF - Click this to export the selected timesheets to PDF document files. You can also export to Word Documents, HTML, plain text etc.

bullet ADDED: Added two buttons to place the timesheet form left or right side of the inspector window of the opened appointment or task item.

bullet ADDED: Added the 'Search My TimeSheets in DB' menu option under Outlook > TimeSheet toolbar > My Settings drop down menu.
bullet With version 8 release, the duration, billable hours etc. of the published timesheets in the database will always be stored in Minutes format. However, you can change it to show in Hours in Search, Reports and OLAP tool. You can set this preference from Team TimeSheet Manager > Advanced Options >  Show Duration/Billable Hours in database in.
bullet REMOVED: Removed the explicit impersonation option in TimeSheet Client menu > Local Settings, whereby a user can choose who he/she is from the list of users (defined by the administrator) and accordingly the timesheet client add-in use it when publishing any timesheets to the central database.
bullet FIXED: If a user has configured multiple Exchange accounts including shared ones, in Outlook, the timesheet add-in may have difficulty picking the primary/correct mailbox user.

Changes in build

bullet Requires .NET Framework 4.5 or above.
bullet Supports using of Microsoft Azure SQL database for storing projects as well as timesheets from Outlook: Azure SQL Database is a cloud-based relational database service from Microsoft, which is based on SQL Server database. This option is ideal for team that have users scattered or working remotely in different locations but have access to the web.

bullet Optimize for SQL server database.
bullet Added a new button 'Create Copy' in the timesheet form in Outlook. Clicking this will create a clone of the current selected or opened appointment/task item along with the project/activity data that might have been tagged previously.
bullet FIXED: Even if default values are defined under Team TimeSheet Client > My Reporting Options panel, TimeSheet Client add-in does not assign default project/activity or custom fields to new appointment or task items in Outlook

bullet Optimized for Outlook 2016


Changes as of 28th December 2015

bullet Supports both 32 bit and 64 bit Outlook 2016 and 365.

28th August2014 (Version

bullet Added option to avoid using ‘Billable Hours’ workflow in Team TimeSheet altogether i.e., the add-in will always compute the total cost based on the pre-defined Outlook duration field of the appointment item. For this, we have added a new option under Team TimeSheet Manager > Advanced Options > Total Cost tab, where the admin can choose which field ('Duration' or 'Billable Hours') is to be used for computing ‘Total Cost’. Optional the admin can also hide the ‘Billable Hours’ field from the timesheet form in Outlook (so as to not confuse the user).
For more, refer to this KB article - http://assistmyteam.net/KB/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=369
bullet Added the variables 'Project Manager', 'Activity Coordinator' and 'Rate' in Summary Reports and OLAP tool. These 3 new fields are also added to the 'tReportedAppointments' and 'tReportedTasks' tables of the timesheet database.
bullet Fixed the bug where you are unable to tag or save any project/activity or billable hours or custom fields data to the appointment items (when you have multiple calendars arranged to be viewed in single Outlook explorer window). Only when you view the calendar in Outlook explorer one at a time, it worked. This issue has been fixed in this update.


12th April 2014 (Version

bullet Added a side bar form in the Outlook calendar/task folder explorer and inspector window to show the project/activity, billable hours and all the custom fields defined by the manager.

With this form, you can have quick access to the Project/Activity and other custom fields and any changes/editing on the fields are instantly saved to the appointment/task item. You don't even need to open the appointment item in its inspector window. However, if you use the inspector window to open the appointment/task item, the same form is available.

bullet Redesigned Auditing feature (Team TimeSheet Manager > Audit Manager). Now, managers can use the 'Audit Manager' to approve or decline timesheets submitted by other members in bulk (by checking multiple timesheets and pressing 'Approve' or 'Decline' button located on the top left portion).

bullet Multiple items tagging (batch tagging) - if you select 2 or more appointment/task items, you could make use of the 'Group Tagging' button (available in the Team TimeSheet ribbon toolbar) to tag the same project or activity or billable hours or custom field value to all the selected appointment/task items in one go.

And from the project fields, you can then set the common value for all the selected appointment/task items.

bullet We know, in the previous versions, how difficult and cumbersome it was to change the logo used in the case form. So, we have simplified the steps and now, all you need to do is to specify your logo image file from a network folder or from web. For more, refer to Team TimeSheet Manager > Form Options > Substitute the logo with your own.
