New release today that changes the way that Digital Persona Fingerprint scanner support is handled. Previously the install files for the fingerprint scanners were included in the general install file but this had beefed the install file to nearly 11 megabytes. In my opinion this was entirely too large and was probably leading to a lot of failed downloads. The fingerprint scanning feature is excellent but is currently only used by a small number of companies so I’ve decided to make support optional and not make the download excessively large for everyone. So, Time Clock MTS now detects if fingerprint support is installed when you try to access any of the fingerprint features within the software and prompts you to download and install the fingerprint scanner install files. Hopefully this will make things a lot easier for new users of the software and help improve download speeds and success rates.
I’ve been a bit remiss posting entries here when I’ve uploaded new versions lately so I’ll just cover the changes to the last few versions quickly (because they’ve been very minor).
- A fix to handle non functioning time servers which I covered in detail here.
- Fix to problem with adding employees to the database for people who had installed the update file, problem was caused by release of version 2.2.3.
- Reworked all of the code that updated the Time Clock Database when upgrading to a new version of the software. Tested to make sure that MS SQL and MySQL databases were updated properly back from version 1.7.3.
- Fix to minor vacation / sick time rounding problem.
