Pay Rate Report shows employees’ current and previous pay rates for fast comparison.

Sales Data can now show sales percentage and actual value based on projected sales at the same time.

Birthday Reminders allow managers to view current and next day employee birthdays.

Templates can now be made from any schedule length and shift configuration for complete customization.

Time Off Requests can now be limited to being made a maximum number of days in advance.

Pay Rate Changes can now automatically trigger an alert to be sent to selected managers.

Meal Penalties can now be designated within the schedule to avoid being counted as over-time.

Minimum Wage Report can be customized per location and allow managers to easily determine if combined wages and tips acquired by staff meet minimum wage requirements.

Holidays can now be designated as “working” or “non-working” with corresponding variances in pay.

Employee View now available to provide managers and supervisors with fast access to their own schedules.

We have also corrected some bugs and other oddities within TimeForge.

  • Terminated employees can no longer be messaged via the TimeForge internal messenger.
  • Notations are made to attendance when the time on the POS or biometric time clock is wrong (i.e.- If your POS system loses power and the time is reset to an earlier time while employees are clocked in. TimeForge will indicate the “clock in” and “clock out” times to be the same and will notify managers of the issues. The manager can then adjust the incorrect time and modify the attendance entries accordingly.)

April 1, 2013

We've been busy busy busy here at TimeForge and a slew of small (and big) features have gone live over the past few weeks! 

We want to keep you in the loop so here's a summary of them: 

Fixed issues:

  • Customers with double punch problems caused from multiple locations and overlapping attendance entries have been fixed.
  • Many internal improvements have been made to speed up the site (yay!).
  • Sales reports are getting fast...faster...blazing fast!!
  • Some sales related errors on the corporate today page have been resolved.
  • Scheduling Lite no longer includes terminated staff in its count of users.

New features:

  • TimeForge now supports inbound text messages in regards to shift confirmations.  Employees can respond to shift reminder texts with "confirm" or "conf" to confirm the shift and TimeForge wills end back a text saying that shift is confirmed.
  • We have enabled "random" pay periods when exporting payroll.
  • We have made holiday calculations separate of overtime so that holiday pay occurs before overtime pay.
  • Our mobile manager app is now available in the Apple store as well as the Android store!  The app now includes weather and sales metrics for the day.
  • TimeForge introduces Applicant Tracking to help you better manage applicants during the employee hire process.
  • TimeForge introduces the Call To Clock In feature, allowing employees to clock in via phone.
