8.  Is TimeTec Leave available in my region?

Yes it is, because TimeTec Leave is a cloud-base system, it is available on the Internet at all times, accessible worldwide.

9.  Does data sync between TimeTec app and the web happen instantaneously?

Definitely! However, if you are not sure whether any syncing occurs, refresh the screen and voila!

10.  Do I need to buy TimeTec app or does it have any in-app purchase?

TimeTec app can be installed for free from iOS and GooglePlay but you only can utilize it to the fullest when you subscribe with TimeTec solutions like TimeTec TA or TimeTec Leave.

11.  What is the average time required for TimeTec Leave implementation?

It depends on how many employees your company have and how complex is your leave policy, accrual rules, restrictions and etc. You can get it done in a matter of hours or for a larger organization it may take a longer time. You don't have to worry because TimeTec support team will always be there to assist you through.

On User License
1.  What is the rationale of charging TimeTec Leave by a block of 10 users instead of counting the license by the exact number of users to reduce the implementation cost?

Staff turnover is never constant and always changing in a company. To charge for an individual license for every new recruit is cumbersome because you have to go through TimeTec Leave license subscription and the payment process before he/she can be registered into the system, or you will need to cancel a user license if he/she had resigned. Charging 10 users per block of user licenses would ensure that a company has some spare licenses to be used at anytime. The TimeTec Leave license subscription fee is only USD2 per user per month, comparatively low in the market, and the minimum of 10 users as a unit of group license only to justify our investment and commitment to provide high quality and reliable system for you.

2.  If my company has a subscription billing cycle of one year, and in the middle of the year, we hire some new staff and we run out of spare user licenses, can I buy new User Group License and still sync with my billing cycle?

Yes, you can subscribe to a new User Group License anytime, and sync it to the expiry date (calculated monthly) of your billing cycle. You would be charged according to the remaining months of your existing expiry date. In reverse, if you want to reduce your User Group License due to staff reduction, you can unsubscribe and get the refund minus the administration charge of USD10 and bank charge accordingly.

Note: The Term of Subscription Discount is not applicable for additional User Group License subscription in between Billing Cycle.

3.  Could my free trial data get transferred to my subscribed account to save on repetitive tasks on system set up and data entry?

Definitely. Our system is designed to allow free trial data to be migrated to the subscribed account to avoid repetitive data entry and system set up.

On Free 10 User Licenses
1.  Do we need to provide credit card information to obtain these free licenses?

Don't take out your wallet just yet; we don't require any credit card information for this free account, believe it, it's FREE. However, once you decided to add some more licenses, we offer several payment methods to go about.

2.  Could I create more than one free 10 user license account for my company and sync all employee's data to avoid paying subscription?

You are not allowed to do so, because each company is entitled to only one TimeTec Leave free account with 10 user licenses. It is troublesome for a company to maintain multiple accounts in operation and cumbersome to sync all employee's data. Any violation of our free-license policy may lead to suspension of your multiple free user license accounts.

3.  Would my data be kept even if the account is inactive?

Yes, we will keep the data even when your account is inactive but efforts will be taken to alert you on your account's inactivities.

4.  Would I receive full support from your technical team even if I'm using this free account?

Trust us, we will not leave you behind; our technical team will always be providing you with our full support because we treat all TimeTec Leave account users the same; entitled to user's privileges.

5.  Does a free account have features similar to a fully paid account?

Yes, nothing is being hidden or disabled just because the account is free. We strongly believe that by providing companies with this free account, they can experience the benefits of the software in totality in managing their business, and in time, would consider TimeTec Leave as the solution to handle their employees as the company grows.

6.  If I deleted an existing user, can I create another user to replace the deleted one?

Yes, you can create another user to replace it. However the ID and the email address for the deleted user cannot be used anymore.

7.  What if I need the data of the employees that I wish to delete?

You need to export every data of the employee before you proceed with the deletion.

8.  Is there any further discount for TimeTec Leave licenses if I want to buy more?

5. Can I setup an account straight from TimeTec Leave App?

The setup of the account can only be done on the web portal because there are many details that an admin needs to take care of to not incur any errors when the system has been deployed. Hence, the setup is recommended to be done on a bigger screen like a computer rather than a small screen smartphone.

6. Can I change my profile picture or any other information such as addresses within TimeTec Leave App?

Changing of profile information can only be done by the Admin because TimeTec Leave is a company's system and all information in the TimeTec Leave must follow the information in your employment records. Any change of information must go through Human Resource and approval of your superior.

9. Will I receive any notification if my leave is approved/rejected?

Yes. You will receive both app and email notification once your leave is approved or rejected.

10. Will I still receive any notification if I exited out of the App?

Yes. As long as your mobile is connected to the Internet, you will receive them.

Questions on TimeTec Leave Web module (Admin point of view)
1. TimeTec Leave App stops working (already login) when I changed my password on TimeTec Leave web. Is this normal? If so, what should I do?

Yes. This is caused by the security verification of the app. In other words, the app detects that your password has been changed and in order to stay login within the app, you will then have to insert your new password.

2. Will changing the password on TimeTec Leave affect other solutions which I've subscribed to, such as TimeTec TA?

Yes. TimeTec solution is using the Single Sign On method for user authentication. Therefore, once you have changed your password in any application, it will take effect on other applications too.

The Admin will be able to setup the company leave settings, amend user's leave allowances, balances, etc. Furthermore, If the Admin is also one of the approvers to the staff, he/she will be able to make leave approval. On the other hand, the User in TimeTec Leave will be only able to apply/cancel leave, view their leave allowances & balances, calendar etc.

5. Why is there the option to set Deductible/Non-Deductible and Paid/Unpaid under Add Leave Type? Aren't the terms meaning roughly the same thing?

Deductible leave is where your leave consists of a certain amount of balance, e.g. Annual Leave. Non-Deductible leave is a type of leave which does not consist of a balance amount, e.g. Maternity Leave. Depending on the company's policy, you can then set which leave is to be considered Paid or Unpaid. Let's look at a simple example: A company has a limit in terms of the amount of Emergency Leave taken thus Emergency Leave is deductible and can be labelled as Unpaid. A Maternity Leave however, is considered to be a non-deductible and paid leave.

6. What is the function of Color Reference under Add Leave Type and why is it so important?

The color is for the purpose of easy reference when you view the homepage's pie chart and calendar.

7. I've noticed a mistake submitted under Leave Settings, can I edit the supposed mistake and will the action take effect immediately?

Yes. All edited settings will take effect immediately upon saving.

8. Is there any way for me to undo my actions under Leave Settings if I accidentally deleted it?

Unfortunately, no. You will have to create the Leave Type or Leave Policy again. Please keep in mind that a confirmation message will be prompted when you delete anything.

You can import the holidays that we have prepared based on your country and it saves you time from adding it manually. Additionally, we are working very hard to get the list updated.
