Helping the MCtime Employee View Load Properly in Internet Explorer

Now that DTS has pushed out Internet Explorer 11 to all county PCs, there seem to be some problems with the employee (HTML) version. If you cannot edit the cost center or are experiencing other strange problems, try the following suggestions from Payroll and FRS IT:

Suggestion from Payroll:

  • Add the URL https://*.montgomerycountymd.gov to Trusted Sites (Tools->Internet Options->Security tab).
  • Add the URL https://*.montgomerycountymd.gov to compatibility view (Tools->Compatibility View Settings).

Suggestion from MCFRS IT:

  • Access the Tools menu and select Internet Options.
  • Ensure you are on the General tab.
  • Uncheck the Delete Browsing History on Exit checkbox.  When the box is checked, any sites entered into compatibility view disappear when the browser is exited.

Verifying Held-on-Incident vs. Continued Backfill

When someone works his/her normal shift and goes on a call that bleeds over, past the end of his/her shift, then (s)he should add a row of Hours Worked with transfer codes as follows:

      Cost Center: The station’s cost center

      Reason: FRS060HI (Held in Incident)

When someone works overtime and goes on a call that bleeds over, past the end of his/her shift, then (s)he should not add an entry for FRS060HI. Instead, (s)he should add in continued backfill (such as FRS060FF with the station’s Cost Center).

Further, since no day may have more than 24 hours of regular Hours Worked, the individual may need to put the time (continued FRS060HI or a backfill) on the following day in MCtime.
