Hours+ Release: November 11, 2021

Date: November 11, 2021

Time: 9:30 p.m. PT

Daily Timesheets 

  • Comments made during submission will appear in an improved email to the crew, so they can easily see comments left by their department head. 
  • DH’s/payroll accts are now limited to submit or delete 150 draft timecards at a time.  
    • At that high quantity, it could take as long as 20-30 seconds. 
  • The department and employee filters are now alpha sorted.  
    • The employee filter also shows the last 4 digits of the SSN. So it should be a lot easier to find employees on that list.  
  • Prep Prod Fee is now supported on the DTS screen. 
  • The drop-down in the table should no longer obstruct the next column. 
  • Account code now populates from the Studio guarantee when no work location is present.  


  • The Timecards screen now has easier filters that feature the project-wide count of timecards in each status.  
  • The payroll accountant’s “Ready” email includes the new statuses. 
    • The status “Ready for Review” has legally changed its name to “Ready for me.”  
    • “Submitted for Approval” is now replaced by more self-explanatory statuses (ex. Ready for Approver 1, Ready for Approver 2, etc.) 
  • Updated product terminology from “Reviewers” to “Approvers”. 
    • This should align better with the way these roles are expressed in Start+. Now, if you’re an Approver in Start+, you’re likely to be an Approver in Hours+ too.  

Timecards Screen 

  • DHs can now bulk approve and bulk reject timecards that are ready for their review. This should help those bigger departments, even when the DH has to ask a lot of employees to edit their timecards to add allowances and the like.
