The second enhancement is single sign-on using your Google account. This will allow you to use your Google account to sign-on to Timogix instead of having to input your username and password. Both of these enhancements are in beta so they are not available yet. But look for them in the near future.
Report Performance
The user reports were updated to improve performance.
Security Changes
The client management tab was removed from the user setup screen for new companies.
This section is now controlled in the user setup screen under permissions. The change to the user setup screen is the client management tab is now hidden.
Why was this removed?
To remove complexity. Basically we want the security to be as simple as possible so the learning curve is low. By hiding this section we reduce complexity/learning curve but do remove some functionality. So there is pros and cons.
Is there a downside?
The ability to have a client manager is removed. A client manager was someone who could add and edit specific clients, but this user had no access to users. Now the user setup and client setup is combined into one permission. So this granularity to allow a client manager to have this access is removed.
Can I have this feature added to my company?
Absolutely. By default this is turned off. Send an email to support and we can turn this feature on for your company.
For more info see the help desk links below.
Auditing Enhancement
Extra audit logging has been added which tracks changes made in the Timogix system.
The extra logging is useful for companies with government contracts that need to be DCAA compliant. A separate audit report was added which gives administrators the ability to view changes filtered by date.

To turn expenses on go to Setup --> Settings --> General Defaults --> Check the "Allow expenses to be created" checkbox.
Industry Verbiage Enhancement
Different companies and industries use different terms when referring to work or services. An example is a business may use the term "Account" instead of "Client".
By default Timogix uses Client, Project, and Task. This enhancement allows the company to adjust these verbiages to there terms. The setup screen to adjust the terms is located at Setup --> Settings --> Display Settings --> Business Verbiage
Invoice by Projects Enhancement
Now when creating an invoice you can choose which project inside the client that time entries should be pulled from.

To turn this feature on go to Settings --> Defaults. Then check the box to allow admin users to override timesheets.
Timesheet Auditing Enhancement
Additional auditing feeds was added to the dashboard, timesheet and approval screens. The auditing lets the user see who saved, approved, rejected, and re-opened a timesheet. The auditing that is shown is more user friendly to the user when compared to the original auditing on the dashboard. The viewable data for the this new auditing is only available for time entries modified after 08/27/2016.
Bug Fixes
When performing a certain sequence of changes in the approval popup, this would cause the users timesheet client totals (bottom of the screen) to not change when moving between timesheets by date. Once a page refresh was done it would show the totals normally.
