What is Tempora Prompt?
The Tempora Prompt is a program that is installed locally on a user’s machine. This program connects to Tempora to determine if the user’s timesheets are up to date. If their timesheets are not up to date, then the user will be prompted to complete their timesheets.
How is Tempora Prompt Installed?
A separate Tempora Prompt Installation Guide should have been made available to your local IT admin please let us know if this is not the case.
How do I Configure Tempora Prompt?
If you are a Tempora Administrator, log into Tempora as normal and click on the Admin tab. Then, in the sidebar on the left-hand side, click on Timesheet Prompt Configuration.
Available Configuration Options
1) Delay Days
The number of days delayed before actively prompting if the timesheet is not up to date. The minimum would be one to start prompting on the day following a day that should have been completed.
2) Prompt interval (minutes)
The number of minutes following a prompt before successive checks to see if prompting is still required.
3) Recheck days
The number of days to wait after finding a timesheet that does not require prompting before rechecking to see if the timesheet now requires prompting. Normally set to 1.
Can be either:
• No prompting – users are not prompted to complete their timesheets if they are overdue.
• Non-insistent – users are given a pop-up reminder on their screen to complete overdue timesheets.
• Insistent – users can only access the Tempora webpage on their machine, preventing them from working on anything else until their overdue timesheets have been completed.
5) Test Type
Can be configured to prompt either when a week has not been posted or when a day has not been saved.
6) Windows/Mac OS X HotKey
A three-key combination that an IT administrator can press on a user’s machine to grant them temporary access to their machine in an emergency (when they have been locked out due to timesheets being overdue). This key combination is set by your local Tempora administrator.
