Introducing Two Factor Authentication (2FA)

We're thrilled to announce the addition of Two Factor Authentication (2FA) to our application, enhancing security measures for our users. 2FA requires the presentation of two distinct forms of identification before granting access, ensuring robust protection against unauthorized access.

Key Features:

  • Dual Authentication: Users need to provide both a traditional "Password" and a "One-Time OTP Code" for access.
  • Multi-Channel Delivery: "OTP Codes" can be received either via "Email" notification to the registered "Email Address" or through "SMS" on a registered "Cell Phone".

SET_S005 - System Defaults: To facilitate the implementation of 2FA, we've introduced new parameters in the screen.

  • Enable/Disable Feature: Admins can now control the enabling/disabling of 2FA for the "SmartESS" application providing flexibility in its application by using the "OTP_AUTHENTICATION_ESS" parameter.
  • OTP Code Customization: Admins can configure parameters such as "Length", "Expiry", and "Regeneration Intervals" for "OTP Codes", tailoring security settings to meet organizational requirements by using the "OTP_CODE_LENGTH", "OTP_EXPIRY_SECONDS", and "OTP_RESEND_WAIT_SECONDS" parameters.

ESS_S001 - Notification Calendar and Settings: In conjunction with 2FA, we've added a new "Notification Type": "Login OTP Notification" to the screen. This notification keeps users informed about "OTPs" sent during the login process.

Login - Login: The 2FA feature is seamlessly integrated into the login screen of the "SmartESS" application, enhancing security without disrupting the user experience.

How to Get Started

Admins can navigate to the "System Defaults" screen to configure "2FA" parameters according to organizational needs. Ensure all users are informed about this new security measure and guide them through the setup process.


  • Admins are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the new parameters and configure them appropriately to maximize security.
  • Users should be educated on the importance of "2FA" and guided through the setup process to ensure a smooth transition.

We're committed to providing cutting-edge security features to safeguard your data. Embrace the added layer of protection with Two Factor Authentication (2FA) and fortify your accounts today!

  • Apply Leave - Apply Leave: When applying multiple leaves consecutively on the same day, users can take the next leave from the previous one's "End Time".

Fixed Issues

  • Monthly Time Sheet Approval - Monthly Time Sheet Approval: If a suggestion was "Pending", a restriction was not set on the "Approval" of the record to ensure that supervisors did not approve the record in the absence of "Overtime Suggestions".
  • Manage Request - Manage Request: When the user was not included in a "Workflow" and possessed the "Process" rights (allocated through the "Request Rights Setup" screen), the "Approved" request(s) was not appearing within the specific "ID" associated with those "Process" rights.
  • Manage Request - Manage Request: By default, the "Date" range was not selected correctly, and it displayed an error message.
  • Detail Payslip - Detail Payslip: The "Days/Hours Worked" field was always showing a value of "Zero (0)" in the report.
  • Dashboard - Dashboard: The alignment of all "Widgets" on the screen was not set.
  • Login - Portal Login Page: On the screen, "Smart WebPortal" title was displayed on the "Browser" tab. After logging in, it showed "SmartESS" title.
