Weekly Update #176

Hello FieldClock Users!

We have a big and exciting update for you all today! Before we jump in, it's come to our attention that our weekly Newsletter hasn't been sending over these last few weeks due to an unnoticed issue. Our apologies! If you'd like to catch-up on the last few Newsletters, please navigate to our public blog.

Please note the following features outlined below will become available within the next few days, and will not be 'live' at the time you receive this Newsletter.

On to the update.

New Role: Kiosk Administrator

Currently, configuring a Kiosk requires the User to have 'Company Administrator' privileges or higher. This can be burdensome if you want Crew Bosses or Managers to do the configuring. To help alleviate this issue, we've added a new role: Kiosk Administrator, which allows the User to login and configure Kiosk without needing Company or Account Admin privileges.

New Feature: Enhanced Job Details Page

When viewing the Job Details view, you'll notice a “Preview” option at the top. We’ve been hard at work to build a better version of Job Details with more features packed in and faster performance, which should provide a better experience overall.  We don’t want to disrupt anybody’s workflow, so we’re trying hard to keep the new view similar to the old one while improving functionality.

Managing Jobs is a critical part of the daily workflow, so this preview will remain “opt-in” until we get all the sharp edges smoothed out.  Take it for a spin and let us know how you like it! As always, we'd love to hear any and all feedback.

New Feature: Employee Search within Job Details

When viewing Employees at a Job (with a lot of Employees), it can sometimes take a while to navigate to a specific Employee. To make this a bit easier and faster, we've added an Employee Search filter. Typing in part of an Employee's name or Badge ID will filter the list for any matches:

New Feature: Bulk-Employee Clock-In

Multiple Employees can now be clocked-in at once! We know a lot of you have been waiting for this, so we're really excited to finally release it for you. This new form replaces the old clock-in form, so simply click the 'Add Employees' button within the Job Details view to pull it up.

New Feature: Equipment Tracking (Admin)

Along with the new Job Details view comes Equipment Tracking. If you'd like to enable Equipment Tracking for your account, please reach out to Support and request access. Once enabled, it will become available on Admin.

How to Use:

Once Equipment Tracking has been enabled, you'll notice a new item in your left-hand navigation bar: 'Equipment (beta)'. Clicking that will bring you to your Equipment list, where you're also able to create your first piece of Equipment.

Equipment works similarly to Employees. Once you've created one, the next step is to download that Equipment's badge image - just as you would an Employee. From there, simply scan the Equipment's badge image from the Employees screen on the FieldClock mobile app, along with an Employee badge, to assign that piece of Equipment to the Employee as well as the Job. It's as simple as that: it works the same way as clocking an Employee into a Job.

From the Admin site, you'll also notice a new 'Equipment' tab on the Job Details screen where you'll find Equipment activity that took place at the Job:

Note: you must 'opt-in' to the new Job Details view to view Equipment.
