2. Position Codes

We have introduced position codes to our organisation chart functionality. You can now record the respective codes or IDs for positions.

 

3. Accrual Movements Improvements

  • The Configurable Years of Service start date field available on an employee’s master record (go to Employee Details tab > Employment Details section > Employment History and click View on a hire date record) has been improved. This date can be used for determining the probability and discount factor calculations.
  • Simplifying leave loading, a leave accrual oncost or leave loading rate can be added at the employee-level on the Leave Policy tab of the employee master record. To enable leave loading; go to User Roles; click View (on the applicable user role); scroll down to the Employee Details section; and enable the Employee Leave Loading permissions.
  • Accrual Balances grid report expanded to report on oncost rate, inflation rate, probability and discount factors calculations. Please be aware, the additional data will only be available in this report from this release onwards. To see how to add these to an accrual type, see the previous release notes.

4. Work Order Dates

Project work orders now come with commencement and cease date functionality.

Android App V2.13
