Update check at start up

Automatically check if there is an update on the internet for your Xpert-Timer. Please double check if the English version is chosen, when you download the update. It should be XTInstEN.exe or XTInstBasicEN.exe

Background recalculation of the project times

Unpredictable circumstances can cause the final total of a project to be different from the sum of the timestamps. The automatic background recalculation calculates the totals daily at a fixed time of your choosing. This option should only be set by a single employee in the company and will only be executed if that employee's Xpert-Timer is also running at that time.

Assign project number automatically

Instead of entering your own project number, you can have the system create one for your.

Query safety code before deleting clients or projects

If you activate this function you'll be asked to enter a simple question before you delete projects or clients. This might be helpful if you repeatedly delete projects on accident.


Allow manual entries

You can limit the time where your user can enter their manual entries. So if you choose "Restrict" only for 7 days retroactively, you user can only enter dates not older than 7 days. This way, they are asked to enter their manual entries contemporary.

Allow changing times

Indicate whether employees are allowed to change times or limit how many days this should be possible retrospectively.

Company wide currency

Use this setting to change the default currency of your Xpert-Timer. This setting overwrites your language settings in Configuration -> Advanced -> General -> Date/Time settings.

Billing rate for new projects

If you projects are created mostly with the same settings, you can set the default for pulling the billing rate. This might be an individual billing rate, you have to set for every project, the billing rate from the main project or from the user.

Show error log file

The error log file may contain helpful information in case of a program crash for the reproduction of errors.

Database consistency check

If your Xpert-Timer suddenly shows wrong total minutes or you get an unexpected error message, use this function. You cannot break anything by using this. Xpert-Timer double-checks the entries in your database and repairs them if necessary

Recalculate project sums

The project manager does not always automatically update the totals of projects in the project list. In the case of system crashes, for example, recorded times may not appear in the grand total. Before you create reports from the project list in the project manager, we recommend to compare the project times once. Version 6.1 automatically starts back-ups in the background. If necessary, you could switch it off with the "Deactivate automation" button.
