This week, we updated three of our apps, launched our new activity-based pay rates feature, changed the behavior of a timesheet population method, and fixed some issues.

Update to Mobile for Android

Replicon Mobile for Android is now available in the Play store. It includes the improved punch entry interface we previewed on June 20th, along with some bug fixes.

Update to Mobile and CloudClock for iOS

Replicon Mobile for iOS and Replicon CloudClock for iOS are now available in the Apple app store. They include bug fixes.

Activity-based pay rates

Some companies pay employees different rates depending on what type of work they perform, or other factors such as the location, day of the week, or time of day when work was carried out. For example, a professional mover might make $13 an hour when moving, but $16 an hour if they’re driving a moving truck.

Now, you can use Replicon to pay employees based on the activity or drop-down custom fields they select in their timesheets. Like standard rates, these new conditional pay rates are associated with effective dates, so you can update them easily from within the Replicon interface.

Note that this new feature requires use of a custom pay rule, since customers typically have custom pay rate requirements, such as how to handle overtime. To have a custom rule set up, contact your account manager or Replicon Support.

With this new feature, you’ll assign all pay rates using the Payroll tab of user profiles, not the main tab. The Hourly Payroll Rate field is now called Pay Rates.

Once rates are in place, you can review them using the new Administration > Pay Codes and PoliciesPay Rates page.

This feature is available in TimeAttend Plus and Workforce Management. However, in TimeAttend Plus pay rates can only be based on activities, not timesheet custom field values.

Refer to Setting up activity-based pay rates for more information on using this feature.

Changes to a timesheet population method

Our Previous Timesheet Including Time Data timesheet population rule will no longer populate timesheets with data that users no longer have access to, such as projects that have ended or are closed, or activities or custom fields that have been disabled.

We’ve also added a new Overwrite Entries option to this rule that allows you to choose whether or not existing entries – including 0 entries – will be overwritten.

Fixed issues

  • In the Details section for time punches in the web app, future clients for cost allocated projects display for a punch, rather than just the currently-assigned clients
  • Search functionality may not work when selecting an activity on a configurable timesheet if the user has many (>100) activities assigned to them
  • You may not be able to save an invoice template if any of the editable fields (logo, company information, payment instructions, footer) are blank
