This week, we updated Mobile for iOS, launched our crew timesheet and team manager features, added a global labor law mailing list, updated our CloudClock time off interface for some users, and made a couple of improvements.


Crew timesheet

We’re proud to announce that we’ve launched our crew timesheet, that allows a crew manager to enter and allocate hours for all members of their team from a single, daily page.




Crew timesheet makes entering time for multiple users quick, easy, and more accurate, especially compared to commonly-used paper-based approaches. It can also save costs by keeping workers focused on their key duties, by decreasing the need for data entry labor, and by allowing project managers real-time insight into what’s happening at work sites.

Supervisors and team managers can be assigned as crew managers by giving them Crew Time permission. Note that team manager is a new role in Replicon – see the section below for more details.




Then, on the Team > Crew Time page, crew managers can:


  • Choose which of their team members appears on the crew timesheet’s daily view
  • Mass add time entries (or copy them from older timesheets)
  • Allocate hours to different jobs using Replicon projects, tasks, or activities, and
  • Mass submit timesheets

Crew timesheet is available both in Replicon Mobile, where we’ve optimized it for use on tablets, and in the web app. Refer to How crew timesheets work for more information.

Please note that crew timesheet:

  • Only supports configurable timesheets
  • Is not available offline
  • Is available in the TimeAttend Plus, Workforce Management, Replicon for ADP RUN, and Replicon for Workforce Now products. Note that if workers’ time is tracked against projects or tasks, they and their managers will also need to be assigned a TimeBill or TimeCost product. And, if you plan to use the team manager role, you'll need to use and enterprise product.

New role: Team manager

This new role can be assigned to managers who need to manage timesheets, time off, and expenses for a team.

Previously, only supervisors and payroll, cost, or billing managers could manage team data. However, those managers have rights you might not want certain team managers to have. And, supervisors can approve items, and need to be directly assigned to users in user profiles, and you may not want a team’s manager to have approval permissions, or to be directly assigned.

Instead of being assigned to team members directly, Team Managers are assigned via groups that you define, based on their location, division, or other factors.




You might use this new role to create, for example:

  • A crew manager, for use with our new crew timesheet (described above)
  • An administrative manager, who completes timesheets for everyone in a particular office, but doesn’t approve items
See Setting up team managers for more information on configuring this role.

Note that team manager is available only in our enterprise products: Professional Services Automation, Project Portfolio Management and Workforce Management.

Compliance updates mailing list

To help keep interested customers up to date with changes to global labor laws, such as new payroll or time off regulations, Replicon publishes updates on our website whenever laws change.

To make this content easier to follow, we’ve introduced a mailing list service to our Compliance Dashboard. You can choose which regions you’re interested in subscribing to, and then whenever laws change in that region, we’ll send you an email update summarizing the change.




Refer to Using the Compliance Dashboard for information on subscribing.

Updated time off interface in CloudClock

We’ve made a few visual changes to CloudClock’s time off interface for those using new time off, to keep that app consistent with updates we’ve made to time off elsewhere in Replicon. You won’t see any changes in what you can do, but the page is organized a bit differently.



Update to Mobile for iOS

Replicon Mobile for iOS 1.1.32.0 is now available in the App store. It includes bug fixes, along with the following improvement:

  • Users can now enter time against projects/tasks and activities, in combination
