What have we been up to?
We’re excited to share that in this release, we’ve focused on ensuring Smartforce is easier to use in some key areas and also further updated the integration between Guardtek and Smartforce
A significant number of customers now take advantage of both our Guardtek and Smartforce platforms and it's important to us that they enjoy a seamless experience across the two. These updates continue to move us towards that goal. Additionally, ease of use improvements are an ongoing goal as we aim to increase the user experience and efficiency within our solution set.
Smartforce & Guardtek Integration Updates
The integration across our solution suite has been enhanced again with the goal of making both setup and ongoing maintenance easier for our customers. These 'quality of life' enhancements revolve around two key features:
- Quick Create Customer - For bundled customers, the Guardtek sync is enabled by default when quick creating a customer
- Punch Settings - Punch settings will be passed from Smartforce to Guardtek so that if a customer is using Guardtek to punch in/out, they only have to define the settings once!
Enhanced Reporting Flexibility
The addition of 'dotliquid' templates in the Query Builder provides additional flexibility and functionality to Query Builder!
In lay terms, this means that you can format queries, filter in enhanced ways and download results into custom file formats to meet your needs for both reporting and file exports!
