Bigger exercise videos for displaying on HD monitors

Version 4.3 (Sep 2013)

New "Quiet Mode" minimises user disruption while still recording break statistics

In this special new mode WorkPace continues to monitor break and micropauses, but will never interrupt the user with break alerts on screen.

Intended to provide an absolute minimum level of work disruption to users the user still receives feedback on when they should take breaks, and on how many breaks they’re taking, via the Status Panel. The mode can be set for all breaks by choosing Current Settings = "Quiet Mode (no alerts)", or by choosing “Low (no alerts)" for the Enforcement Level on any break.

This mode allows Wellnomics Risk Management users to complete a risk assessment on staff’s work patterns before any breaks are prompted. Management can identify which staff are at risk before before turning on any breaks. This allows you to maximise risk reduction whilst minimizing user interruption.

Improved visibility of your Current Settings

Version 4.3 makes it much easier to see and change your break settings.   Whenever you open the WorkPace Console you see a summary of your current settings.  With one click you can run the WorkPace Setup Wizard and change your profile to get breaks more or less often as you feel you need.

Also new in 4.3

  • Ability to set default settings values for new WorkPace users
  • Ability to move the Micropause window around the screen to move it away from what you're working on if needed
  • Suspend WorkPace in Windows Remote Session option added to Preferences > Options 

See Wellnomics WorkPace 4.3 Release Notes for a complete list of enhancements & fixes in this version.

Version 3.9 (16 Nov 2009)

New Features

  • WorkPace updated to conform to Arbowet 2008 changes - 6 hour limit no longer required. (Up to date conform Arbowet 2008 - daglimiet 6 uur vervallen)
  • Added new Monitor Only mode: In this mode Wellnomics WorkPace works in the background, recording computer usage. The user does not see breaks and exercises but their computer usage data can be sent to the Wellnomics Risk Management system. Users who need to have Wellnomics WorkPace fully implemented can be easily and quickly identified. This mode is aimed at new users of Wellnomics WorkPace so that their risk levels can be assessed before their breaks and exercises routine is configured.
  • At the end of a license period, WorkPace now communicates with the server to find a new license, before it shows an expired warning. This is particularly useful when Wellnomics WorkPace is being rolled out over time in large organisations.

Fixes

  • Added support for automatic data sync to Wellnomics Risk Management server at startup, shutdown and log off.
  • Reduced the data sent to Wellnomics Risk Management server to reduce traffic loading.

Version 3.8 (29 Jan 2009)

Fixes

  • Fixed issue relating to keystroke recording within remote desktop environments (Windows Server 2003 and Thin Clients such as Citrix). This meant keystrokes weren't being recorded accurately under remote desktop environments.
  • Fixed daily limit failure to reset upon wake from laptop hibernation.
  • Fixed issue with Windows Vista installation "browse to network location"
  • Fixed Rest break resetting after logoff and login again

Version 3.7 (16 July 2008)

Enhancements

  • The key product enhancements in this version streamline the synchronisation of Wellnomics WorkPace with Wellnomics Risk Management, the integrated software solution that manages the health and safety of computer users.
  • Daily usage data can upload at shutdown: The daily usage data upload can now be made to Wellnomics Risk Management at the time of Windows or Wellnomics WorkPace shutdown. This feature spreads the load on the server when it is being used for synchronisation by large numbers of employees, and also allows greater support for end users that use a "Hot Desk" working environment.
  • Support for reduced data upload to Wellnomics Risk Management. Wellnomics Risk Management can notify Wellnomics WorkPace 3.7 that some statistics, (such as individual keys, laptop usage, and statistics for individual applications such as Word and Excel) do not need to be uploaded during synchronisation. This feature minimizes the data held by Wellnomics Risk Management in the Wellnomics Risk Management Database and reduces synchronisation time.

Fixes

  • Corrected an issue which caused the measurement of mouse movement to not be recorded correctly.
  • Issue with popup windows not being centered correctly with multiple monitors was fixed.
  • Changed WorkPace to now use the Windows User Interface Language as the initial language instead of the Locale Language.
  • A problem with version 3.6 meant that multiple copies of Wellnomics WorkPace could be run by a user at the same time. This has been fixed.
  • The log scroll bar functionality issue is fixed.

Version 3.5 (18 Apr 2007)

Microsoft Vista compatibility.

Digital signing enabled: Digital signing is a technology that ensures that the software is in its original form and has not been tampered with. All WorkPace *.exe and *.dll files are now digitally signed.

Version 3.4 (21 Sep 2006)

Blank Screen option: The Administrator is able to select that a blank screen appears during WorkPace breaks. This is useful to reinforce the actual break for users at the highest risk.

Standby duration selection: Standby in WorkPace can be useful for short periods when someone doesn't want to be interrupted (e.g. when making a presentation). However, sometimes the user can forget to turn WorkPace back on afterwards. This new function allows the user to select the duration of the standby after which time WorkPace will automatically resume.

Logoff safety guard: When daily or weekly computer-use limits have been reached a window appears to notify the user. The user can choose to ignore the notice and continue working, or log-off the computer. If "logoff" is selected the user will now be prompted to confirm that they wish to close down their computer. This will prevent any inadvertent shut-downs.

Version 3.2 (31 May 2006)

New Monitoring Engine: WorkPace 3.2 introduces a major advance in measuring computer use. With support for Windows Direct X and Windows XP Raw Input WorkPace can measure more than ever before. Immediate benefits are monitoring of mouse scroll wheel activity, and distinguishing better between real and computer generated keystrokes (e.g. from speech recognition programs). This new engine will allow WorkPace to measure new statistics not previously possible , such as laptop usage and identifying what type of mouse or keyboard is being used. This will help WorkPace measure risks even more accurately than before.

Recording Time on Standby: Standby in WorkPace can be useful for short periods when someone doesn’t want to be interrupted (e.g. when making a presentation). However, leaving WorkPace on standby too much can risk user’s health. Now you can report on how much standby is being used. Identify users who’re using standby too much.

Version 3.1 (31 March 2006)

Desk Mode: Requested by many, WorkPace ‘desk mode’ is finally available. Many clients have said they’d like to keep being reminded to take micropauses, breaks and do stretches regularly, even when not using the mouse or keyboard. For example, if they are writing at their desk, or if using speech recognition software. Now WorkPace can support this with a new feature called ‘Desk Mode’.

Turn on this feature and WorkPace will swap into ‘desk mode’ after you stop using the mouse and keyboard for a while. This will ensure you maintain healthy work habits away from the computer as well when using it.
