Online Time Clock Improvements and Three New Software Development Kits


Just over a couple of weeks ago, we launched our integrated online time clock module into the Humanity application. We launched it in ‘Beta’ as we wanted to clearly communicate with you that this module will be under rapid development over the next couple months.

We do actively listen to your requests, and over the last 24 hours we have implemented a number of improvements:

Add time clocks for employees – Management can now add time clocks for individual employees (alongside the ability to import them through .xls & .csv).

Restrict Clocks Times – You can now setup a time period in which clock times must happen at the start and end of shifts. For example if an employee is schedule to work from 9am-5pm, you can setup a 30min window which will allow them to clock in between 8:30am-9:30am and clock out between 4:30pm and 5:30pm. Any clock times out side of this window that need to be added must be manually submitted and are flagged differently.

Reporting – Alongside the other reports there is now a time-clock report which quickly totals time sheets for employees and schedules.

Round Time Clocks – Because Time Clocks happen down to the second, we have setup an easy way for time clocks to automatically be rounded for any given report period. It’s important to note that we won’t round individual days, only the total, which means that the rounding is only applied once.

Improved Admin Interface – We’ve added improved filtering options, and an overall face-lift to help provide you with more of the information you need to efficiently manage your online time sheets.

For anyone interested in using our Data API to integrate their Humanity data with other applications/tools this has just become a lot easier. We have just released three new software development kits (SDK’s):

  • Javascript – For fast web integration with Humanity data
  • C# – For development in desktop applications
  • ASP.NET – Fast integration using the ASP.NET platform
  • Python – *Coming Very Soon

All of our SDKS are released as opensource and are publicly hosted in our public GitHub Repository.
