The change job button on the AttendView Clock was corrected so that it displays the change job selection.

AttendView 3.63 Changes

Longer message can be left by employees. The messages that can be left by employees can now be 100 characters long (was 50 characters).

The Select Job dialog was updated so that Department and Job number may be typed in. With previous version, the department and job-number had to be selected from a drop-down list. Note: This dialog is displayed when the Seledt Job button is pressed on AttendView Clock.

AttendView 3.61 Changes

Detailed report Job Number column correction. The Detailed and More Detailed report generation was corrected so that the Job Numbers are included (AVReport.exe updated).

AttendView Clock network performance improved. The use of the database AVClock status display was improved. First, if a disk or network error occurs, the error is displayed in the status box rather than in a pop-up window. This prevents numerous pop-up windows from appearing when a network problem persists for a period of time. Second, AVClock was modified to use a separate database interface than the Clock in/out function to improve the performance when multiple instances of AttendView Clock clients are running.

Detailed Job Reports for Selected employee corrected. Detailed and More Detailed Job reports don't generate an error message (error 20515) when a specific employee is selected for the report (AVReport.exe updated).

Job Table in database corrected. The Jobs table in the database file was corrected to include a primary key. For users using the with existing databases not created from the version 3.61, the Job table will need to be updated manually (not required if Jobs are not tracked). This can be done from Access by removing all the Jobs from the Job table. Then changing the Job Number to an auto-incrementing primary key, and then adding all the jobs back to the table.

Select Job Dialog Change. There are new Select Job options in AVClock configuration dialog. The select job dialog previously only had a combo-box for selecting the job.

"Include Department selection in Select Job dialog". If checked, the Select Job dialog will include a drop-down combo-box for the employee to select a department from.

"Include Comments field in Select Job dialog". If checked, the Select Job dialog will include an edit box allowing the employee to enter comments.

Department Column Added to Detailed Time reports. The Detailed Time Report (detailed.rpt) and the More Detailed Time Report (Detailed2.rpt) include a column that display the Department. If the Select Job dialog is not used for selecting the department, this column will display the department to which the employee belonged when clocking in. If the Select Job dialog is used to select a department, the selected department will be displayed in this column.
