31.0 - 41.0: Bug fixes

In addition to making some adjustments to the wording within our product and improving our database structures, some of the bugs we fixed this month include the following:

English localization

  • The absence calendar shows details of shifts from which an employee has been removed due to absence. The abbreviations of the weekdays were incorrectly displayed in German for English accounts.
  • The error message if a Google account is already connected to a Papershift profile has been adjusted.

Phone number in employee exports.

When exporting employee profiles in .csv and .xlsx format, we fixed an error that caused phone numbers to be displayed incorrectly.

Special characters in employee names

The display of special characters in employee names previously led to display errors, so that, for example, the character "&" was displayed as "&amp". The display of special characters has now been corrected.

Station App

It would sometimes happen that the system would retroactively remove the tags set for time recordings from the Station App. We have now corrected this behavior. In addition, one of our updates to the web application meant that it was sometimes not possible to end or clock out via the app without errors. We have made improvements here as well.

Breaks for serial shifts

When changing a shift break within a recurring shift, the breaks were not applied if the options "For all shifts" or "For all upcoming shifts" were selected. We have adjusted this behavior, so that now everything is applied as desired.

40.0: Additional columns in account exports, Syria in country selections

Additional columns in account exports

Absences and Time trackings exports now specify the location in which it was created

We have added a column to both the absences and the time trackings export on the account level (included in the Professional package). You can now see in which of your locations the time tracking or absence was created.

Syria in country selection

We have added the option "Syria" (SY) to all country selection menus:

  • In the data profiles
  • In the Account Settings → General → Country

33.0 - 39.0: Nested working areas, Time tracking: "Recorded by" changed, Tags in Monthly view: list

Nested working areas

Working areas can now be nested within each other

Working areas can now be nested. This allows hierarchies and relationships between individual areas to be displayed. Up to four hierarchy levels can be created.

EXAMPLE: Accounting (Parent area) → Billing (subarea of "Accounting") → Subscriptions (subarea of "Billing") → Area X (subcategory of "Subscriptions").

These relationships also have an impact on the filtering of time recordings or shifts in the duty roster. If, for example, the parent area is hidden, all subareas are also automatically hidden (these can then be shown again individually).

Convert area to subordinate working area

To change a working area into a subordinate working area, you can edit the desired area (Location Settings → "Scheduling" tab → Working areas → blue button with gear) and select the parent area via the corresponding button.

"Recorded by" in time tracking overview

Time records from the duty roster

We have changed the wording for time records created via Roster. Entries that are automatically created from the duty roster are now also more clearly labeled as "Created by" Roster.

Tags in Monthly view: list

Additional column for tags in the Monthly view: list

In the calendar we have adjusted the "Monthly view: list" and extended it with another column for shift tags.

27.1 - 30.0: Records export, Color selection

Additional column "Notes" in the records export

The export of the records now has an additional column with notes

In the last release, we added an icon in the records if a note is created for a day. With the current release, we have now improved the export of the records so that these notes are also visible in the export.

"No color" option for Working Areas and Tags improved

Clearer indication for "No color" option 

We have more clearly highlighted the "no color" option in the settings of Working Areas and Tags. This way, applied color can be undone.

Tooltip for resource view of events

Additional tooltip in the resource view of events

In the resource view of events, it was often not possible to read the title of the event without opening the detail view, especially for short events. To increase usability, we have now added a tooltip that displays the event title when hovering the mouse cursor over the event.

Account-ID displayed in the account settings

The Account-ID is now displayed in the account settings

The Account-ID, which can also be viewed at the location level via the gear icon, is now also displayed in the account settings when you click on the wrench.

Yemen in country selection

We have added the option "Yemen" (YE) to all country selection menus:

  • In the data profiles
  • In the Account Settings → General → Country

Enhanced employee export (vacations)

Employee export extended by cut-off date for vacation entitlement

The employee data export has been extended by another option. You can now specify a cut-off date for the vacation entitlement.

EXAMPLE: An employee has taken 5 days of vacation in January and 5 days in February, with a vacation entitlement of 26 days in total. If the field is now left empty, the export will show 10/26 days, i.e. the total planned vacation. If January 31 is selected as the cut-off date, the export shows 5/26 days, since only 5 days have been planned as of the selected cut-off date.

27.1 - 30.0: Bug fixes

Deleted employees

Until now, it could happen under certain circumstances that a deleted employee continues to appear in previously assigned shifts. We have now fixed this bug.

English Localization

We have continued to work on improving the English language version of Papershift and have fixed some inconsistencies.

Create new data profiles

Creating a new data profile in the account settings is now accessible via a corresponding "+" button.

Sorting of reports

Reports are now sorted alphabetically and no longer by creation date.

Extended calendar rights (resource view)

The settings for extended rights in the calendar (accessible via the location overview on the account level) now also apply to the resource view. Previously, these settings were ignored in the resource view.

26.9 - 27.0: IP Whitelisting

IP Whitelisting

We now have a function for whitelisting IP addresses, which can be added to a customer account on request.

IMPORTANT: This feature cannot be set or changed by the customer, but will be added to the database by us individually upon request.

IP whitelisting means that devices that are not whitelisted will not be able to log in to Papershift.com. If they are already logged in, they will be logged out as soon as the feature is added to the account.
