Hi Team,

My client would like to know if there is a possibility for Replicon to add an Automatic Location Flag which will automatically recognize and indicate whether a person is working in office or remotely/at home when they complete a timesheet and be able to appear as value/data in Replicon reports.

Thank you,

Kitty

Hi Kitty,

Thank you for using the Replicon Community!

This feature is available for Punch In/Out timehseets where you can turn on 'GPS Capture Required' in the punch entry policy. You can also capture this information in Timesheet Punch Details report.

We would however, like to know if you are currently using a different timesheet format.

Thanks,
Aashnee

Hi Aashnee,

Thank you for the quick response. I am not sure what you mean by "a different timesheet format" as in different from which format. I do see the Punch Entries Policies option under Administration. Is there a tutorial I can learn about how to add the GPS Capture function to our timesheets? Do you need access to our instance to suggest a solution?

Thank you,

Kitty

Hi Aashnee,

I had spoken to one of your representatives, and I believe that the timesheet format you are recommending do not suit our users' needs. We are currently on Standard Timesheet and users are not required to punch time in/out for their time tracking purpose. I do understand that location is captured when a user click Time In/Out button. We are on daily timesheet setting under which users enter their hours against the activities they select, and submit their timesheets daily when completed. Is it possible for the development team to capture location whenever a user submits the timesheet? This should happen without users noticing (i.e. users should not have to do any additional work in order for the location capture to happen).

Please let me know if this is doable.

Thank you,

Kitty

Hi Kitty,

This is not something we currently have planned. But for when we review feature requests in future, can you explain how you would use this information?

Thanks,
Charlene

Hi Charlene,

Currently CIBC Finance is adopting a flexible work model in which employees can choose to work from home, offsite or onsite in the office depending on their schedules. Thus, managers may run into an issue of not knowing where their employees are. If Replicon is able to capture location whenever employees submit their timesheets, then we will be able to run reports both to understand where the employees had been working and to analyze if the flexible work model has been working well.

Thank you,

Kitty

Hi Kitty,

Our User Login Activity report lists each time a user logs in to the system. Today it shows the date and time of the log in. We would add an additional column to show the IP address that they logged in from.



Thanks,

Hi Charlene,

Thank you for your response. I have forwarded this message to my manager, and we will let you know if this is workable for us. This is a normal report we can build and run on Replicon right?

On the other hand, please advise if there is any charge for this change to occur.

Regards,

Kitty

Hi Kitty,

Sorry for the delay - I had seen your response but missed your questions. It would be included in our normal report and there would be no charge.

We have this report enhancement in the plans, but there is no timeline currently.

Thanks,
Charlene
