Another holiday season has come and gone. They just seem to zip by, don't they? And now here we are in 2018! We're excited to get started with you, our valued customers, in the new year and hope you are too. We've got a lot of exciting changes coming. Read on to learn about some of them. And always remember that we're here for you. Get in touch with any questions (or just to say hi). Happy New Year to you and yours from all of us here at the TCC.
All systems, including the Application Directories, now include your user ID, the host IP address, and the abbreviation and version number of your browser. Another way we're making things more transparent for you.
The new Bank Reconciliation application makes it easier than ever to reconcile bank transactions.
Employee Access has a few changes. A new page allows employees to create, edit, and view leave requests. And now there's a calendar in which employees and supervisors can view leave requests. Click on a request on the calendar and get all the information you need about it. Nice to be able to see everything at a glance but know that all the data is just a click away. For more integrated functionality, see the information about Human Resources below.
Need to void a check in Finance with today's date? No problem. You can also remove the voided entry from the vendor EFT notification. Nifty.
Document Attachment was also added to Finance. Upload, view, and download documents just like you can in other applications. Click for more information about Document Attachment in the Business system, including a list of pages in applications where Document Attachment is available (click here for information about Document Attachment in the Student system).
The Human Resources utility, Import Online Leave Requests, does just that. Approved employee online leave request records are imported from Employee Access creating a leave transmittal for each leave request. This will then be processed by payroll. Whew, that's a lot to do. Good thing TxEIS does it for you.
Help is always updated for each Release or Update. To see a list of changes, you can request Release Notes from your regional Education Service Center.
You read that right: TSDS is now State Reporting. Renaming the system will give us more flexibility in the long-run, as it may not ONLY be TSDS reporting included. Of course, we'll let you know about any changes in that direction.
Why worry about data integrity, backups, loading the newest version of the software or troubleshooting when you could be with us on the TCC Data Center. A fully redundant design has automated disaster recovery failover from our facilities at ESC-11 in White Settlement and ESC-20 in San Antonio. We’re SSAE-16 SOC2 Type-1 certified and offer a comprehensive security solution with firewalls, security appliances, and switches. And you don’t need to worry about hardware upgrades.
See the flyer here.
New Help: In order to provide you with the best product possible, we're updating how we create Help. You'll still get the same great content (and it works the same: just click Help), but you'll notice some changes to the way it's presented. It's available in most applications now. Once you click Help, you'll notice the difference. And we'll be finished switching over soon. Want to know some more? Check out the start pages for Business and Student.
