TimeCardView Factory-Set Limits

Installation of Cisco Unity Express is a prerequisite to install and use TimeCardView, because TimeCardView is an add-on package to Cisco Unity Express. In other words, without Cisco Unity Express, you cannot have TimeCardView.

TimeCardView System Limits

TimeCardView System Limits

This section describes the system limits for TimeCardView:

System Limits: TimeCardView Users and Cisco Unity Express Mailboxes

System Limits: TimeCardView Users and Cisco Unity Express Mailboxes

Open Caveats — TimeCardView Version 7.0.1

CSCsw70541

Problem   Durations appear negative.

Symptom    On the IP phone, review hours shows negative durations.
In the Historical Reporting Client (HRC), the report shows negative durations.
In the GUI, the timesheet shows negative durations.
The weekly work durations shown on the phone may diverge by a minute or more from the sum of the work durations shown in the GUI.

Conditions   When a supervisor overrides an employee's current state and, when entering the time to end this state, selects the first option on the IP phone screen. For example, if an employee started a shift on 12/18/2008 at 10:05 and forgot to change this state, the employee's account will be locked when any of the limit times are exceeded. This will require the supervisor to override the current state by ending it with an appropriate date and time. If the supervisor selects 12/18/2008 at 10:05 (which is the first option on the IP Phone screen for the time to end the state), the result will be a negative duration in the timesheet.

Workaround   When overriding an employee's status:

1. On the IP phone, the supervisor should not select the first option for the End Time. In the above example, the supervisor should not select "12/18/2008, 10:05" as the end time.

2. On the timesheet, the supervisor must use the TimeSheet Review/Approval page to change the negative duration.

Resolved Caveats — TimeCardView Version 7.0.2

CSCsx26599

Problem   When a supervisor tries to overrride a locked employee after a purge, the screen displays a 500 error.

Symptom    The phone screen displays a null pointer exception:Exception in R( /timecardview + /attendanceview/datepicker.do + null))java.lang.NullPointerException

CSCsx20935

Problem   In the Historical Reporting Client (HRC), the logs display in clear text the admin password used for logging into HRC.

CSCsx17990

Problem   The telephone user interface (TUI) plays out incorrect time for review hours.

Conditions   When using the TUI review hours menu, an employee's accumulated hours are not correct. However, the IP phone interface and the GUI do display the hours correctly.

CSCsx62737

Problem   On the command line interface (CLI), the sync time shows incorrectly in the output for the show timecardview command.

Conditions   When a TimeCardView administrator uses the CLI to schedule a synchronization, the system displays the time of that sync incorrectly in the show timecardview output. However, if the administrator uses the graphical user interface (GUI) to schedule a sync, the time does display correctly in the output.

Resolved Caveats —TimeCardView Version 7.0.3

CSCsy71804

Problem   Payroll server synchronization time is shown incorrectly. The running configuration and the database show different times for payroll synchronization.
