This week, we updated Replicon Mobile for iOS and Android, and released password strength enforcement, an increased character limit for certain text fields, and custom fields validation for punch timesheets.

Password strength enforcement

We’ve added a new security option that, when enabled, requires all new passwords to be rated ‘Good’ or higher. The password rating is based on Replicon’s built-in complexity algorithm; any password requirements you set will also be checked.

To enable this feature, go to Administration > System and Security > Security Settings, and enable the Must Have Strength Rating of at Least Good option. Enabling this option won’t prompt users to create new passwords; this requirement will only apply the next time they change their password.

Increased character limit for certain text fields

We’ve now launched the improvement we previewed on Oct 4 – you can now enter up to 2000 characters in timesheet comments fields and text-based timesheet, project, and time off dynamic custom fields. Fields will auto-expand as text is entered so you can always view your complete comments. Comments fields also include a character count display.

Ability to validate for completion of punch custom fields

We’ve added a new default punch validation ruleMandatory Custom Fields Validation. This rule can be used to ensure users fill out punch custom fields when creating punches, or on their punch timesheet.

With this rule, if the custom fields you indicate are ‘required’ are left blank, a validation will display on the user’s timesheet. You can set up validations to block timesheet submission, if desired.

Update to Mobile for iOS

Replicon Mobile for iOS is now available in the App store. Among its changes, it includes an update to our version requirements:

  • Now, the minimum Android operating system we support is 6.0 (Marshmallow)
And a fix for the following issue:

  • Commas don’t work as decimal separators for time entries

Update to Mobile for Android

Replicon Mobile for Android is now available in the Play store. It includes changes related to upcoming features.


  • We’ve updated the default Alberta pay rule to reflect a change in legislation regarding holiday pay eligibility; employees are no longer required to work for 30 days in the preceding 12 months before they’re entitled to holiday pay

Fixed issues

  • If you go to Administration > Timesheets > Timesheet Templates, select a template, then click the Back button in your browser, you may see additional, invalid templates in the list of timesheet templates
