Just a minor release today. The single new feature is being able to use a custom NTP server from which Time Clock MTS can set it’s internal clock from. You might like to use this setting for the following reasons:
- Your network is not connected to the Internet and cannot access an external NTP server so you must use a NTP server on your network somewhere.
- Your network is firewalled and does not allow access to the port required for a query to an NTP server. This port is UDP port 123. If this is the case then you must use a NTP server on your network somewhere.
- You prefer to use a geographically closer NTP server than the default time servers available in Time Clock MTS. For a list of available public NTP servers try taking a look at the NTP Organization Home Page.
A minor bug was fixed in this version, the report configuration screen would give an invalid property error when the next month button was pressed and then the this week button was pressed, but only when the current month had 30 days and the previous had 31. It was fairly obscure but thanks to one alert user who figured out exactly what was going on.
Versions 1.6.3/1.6.4 were released recently in an effort to try to fix an error on the Edit Times Screen. Some users were reporting that the drop down menus on the Add Time and Delete Time buttons on the Edit Times screen were not working but I could not replicate this. It turned out the error only occurred when navigating to the Edit Times screen from the View Information button on the main Time Clock MTS Screen. There’s no apparent fix to this (it’s a system error rather than a bug on my behalf) so I’ve removed the ability to navigate to the Edit Times screen from the View Information button. You’ll have to get there via the Tools->Edit Times menu (which you could always do anyway).
