Reopen Paths for Improved Flexibility
We are excited to introduce a new feature that allows you to reopen tasks within a path, even after they have been completed. Previously, once a task was marked as complete by an employee, it could not be reopened. With this update, you have the flexibility to reopen a task if, for instance, an incorrect document was uploaded. This will enable employees to make necessary corrections and complete their tasks accurately.
Double Visit Payroll Audit - Overlapping Clock-in Dates
We did an enhancement to the Double Visit Payroll Audit feature. It now detects and highlights overlapping clock-in dates for all visits even if the earning code, job code and comments are not an exact match. This improvement provides better visibility into potential discrepancies, allowing you to identify and resolve any overlapping time entries more efficiently. We added a setting on the audit in case you do want to flag it as it was until now which is only when the earning, job code and comments are matching.
New Audit to Flag Amount per Pay Entry Record Filtered by Code Group
We have added a new audit to our powerful payroll audit library that validates pay records based on amounts. This addition empowers you to conveniently filter pay entry records by code group to easily identify any pay records that fall outside the expected pay range.
New Alert for Unapproved Timecards
To further strengthen our timecard approval process, we have introduced a new alert to our existing Alerts Library. You can now create an Alert for users to receive notifications for any timecards that have not been approved. This proactive alert serves as an additional layer of accountability, ensuring timely approval of timecards before payroll processing, and minimizing potential errors.
Add Dependents While Enrolling for Health Benefits
Enrolling employees for health benefits has never been more convenient! Previously, adding dependents required navigating to the Dependents section of the Employee profile. However, we have streamlined this process by introducing the ability to add dependents directly during the enrollment phase. This new feature allows you to seamlessly include dependents while enrolling employees, saving you time and effort.
NetSuite GL Report Setup
Introducing the new GL Report Setup feature for Net Suite! This enhancement enables companies using NetSuite to leverage our powerful GL engine for enhanced financial management.
Trim Extra Spaces for ID/Name When Searching on People Tab
We understand that typing habits can sometimes lead to extra spaces at the beginning or end of employee ID/Name entries. Previously, these spaces could cause inconvenience when searching for employees on the People tab. We have addressed this issue by implementing a solution that trims leading spaces when performing searches in the People tab. Now, you can quickly locate employees without worrying about extraneous spaces affecting your search queries.
General Performance Improvements
In this release, we have dedicated significant effort to enhance the overall performance of our system. Our focus has been on improving internal tools and processes to ensure a smoother user experience for all.
Though not the most thrilling update 😉, these enhancements will benefit everyone in the long run by providing a more efficient and reliable platform.
We have made significant changes and improvements to our Affordable Care Act (ACA) process. Building upon the lessons learned from the previous year, we have refined our handling of ACA-related tasks. Our goal is to streamline the entire process, reduce administrative burdens, and deliver a smoother experience for all users. Look forward to exciting updates at the end of the year when the full impact of these enhancements will be realized.
Like in every release, we squashed many bugs. here are some of the highlights
- Signing Docs on Mobile - First Name Only: Resolved an issue where in many cases signing documents on iOS devices would prefill the first name only in the signature field. Now, the complete signature loads correctly every time.
- ESS Missing Punch Request for Different Time Zone: Fixed a bug that caused missing punch requests in the Employee Self-Service (ESS) module to be off when employees were in different time zones. The punch requests now accurately reflect the clock-in time based on the respective time zones.
- Documents with Many Pages Loading Instantly on Mobile: Previously, clients with large document packages experienced slow loading times on mobile devices. With this fix, all clients' documents, regardless of size, will load quickly and efficiently on mobile devices.
- Display Error Message When Attempting to Delete Tied Document: Implemented a solution to display an appropriate error message when attempting to delete a document that is tied to an Onboarding template. This prevents accidental deletion of essential documents and provides clear guidance to users.
- Alert Recipient Filter for Direct Access or Manager: Rectified an issue where the recipient filter for alerts included employees whom the user did have access to but not managing. The filter now accurately displays only the relevant recipients.
- Global Search DD Results Properly Filtered: Addressed a bug in the global search feature where direct deposit (DD) voucher results were not filtering the specific voucher when loading the pay entry page. This fix ensures you will find the relevant search results for DD-related queries quicker.
- Attendance OT Filtered for Each Company's Earning Code List: Implemented a fix to properly filter overtime (OT) entries in attendance records based on the earning code list specific to each company. This ensures accurate calculation and reporting of overtime hours.
- Filter Unpaired Punch Alert to Open Timecards Only: Previously, the filter for unpaired punch alerts showed unpaired punches for all timecards, regardless of their status. This fix restricts the alert to only show unpaired punches for open timecards, providing more relevant information for review and resolution.
- ESS Dropdowns Not Loading with Latest Chrome Update Fixed: Fixed an issue where the dropdown menus in the ESS module were not loading properly after a recent update to the Google Chrome browser. Users can now fully utilize the dropdown menus without any disruption caused by the browser update.
- Fixed Bug Allowing Input Fields When Digitizing Documents Outside of Doc: Addressed a bug that allowed input fields to be added outside of the designated document area when digitizing documents. This fix ensures that input fields function as intended, providing a smoother and more accurate document digitization process.
