Map Default Filters

Hi everyone,

Here we are with a quick update!

We have added a new feature that will allow you to setup the default filters for the Map. Originally, when you first logged in to the Administrator Portal, this is what you would normally see:

The filters are defaulted to the option that will allow you to see everyone at any time, if they are clocked in, clocked out or on break.

Now, we will have a new gear icon that will take you to the settings where you will be able to customize what filters are going to be used when you log into the website:

If you click on it, you will see this:

Notice how these are the same filters as in the Home screen, so pick the ones that suit you the best and click the "Save" button when you are ready.

Now the default option will be changed using your custom settings and whenever you log into the web portal, those are the ones that will be used from then on:

Make sure to use the "Filter" button to view the results, and feel free to adjust these settings whenever you need.

Let us know if you have any comments, we hope you like this new 'quality of life' improvement!

New Feature: Auto Task Search

We have just added a very interesting new feature that will enable your employees to do a cloud search of tasks that are on their own team, or that have been assigned to the "No Team" section.

This is very useful for those cases where companies have a large volume of tasks and constantly upload new projects. There may be the time when an employee can't seem to find a job but he/she knows for a fact that a Manager has uploaded it to the system.

In this example, there is a new project called "Dirt Candy", so the employee tries to find it using the local task search:

See how the task is not available, so all that needs to be done is tap "SEARCH" on the top right of the screen. This will automatically look for the typed task in the server (specifically on No Team or the employee's own team).

Since this was an existing job, then the application will find it without issues:

Now the employee can select it to punch in to that project:

Of course, under normal conditions your administrator should be keeping your phones task list up to date with all the tasks that you personally need many hours (or ideally days) before you actually need them, but if for any reason the task that you need is not present on your phone, you can use this feature as a backup to find what ever you need.  If your administrator has very recently updated your task list with new items (like in the last few minutes), you can use the "Connect" option (in the main application Menu) in order to quickly update your local tasks list to avoid needing to use this search feature.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments section!
