Release date September 9, 2020
Hi! As you might know, we are busy building Neo, a completely new web interface for managers. Neo will replace Classic at the end of this year, when all major modern browsers will drop support for Adobe Flash. Until then, we are turning off certain views in Classic to encourage managers to use the improved version of the view in Neo.
This change will also impact how we'll handle bugs in Classic until it is retired. In short, we won't investigate or resolve any bugs in Classic unless they have a direct impact on payroll outcome as defined in our Service Level Agreement (SLA).
Instead, we'll focus our efforts on the Neo roadmap and feature list to enhance the user experience and to ensure that Neo offers functionality beyond the capabilities of Classic as soon as possible.
Possibility to set an external ID on a Neo role
You can now set an external Neo role ID from Classic > Settings > Tables > Integration key types / Integration keys. In this version, we also release API support in the endpoints wsdlUpdateEmployees and wsdlGetEmployeesV2.

Updates and performance improvements
- The label "Time" on the Time card has been replaced with "Amount".
- General performance improvements relating to skills.
- Added prevention of deletion of a Time Tracker when still connected to a salary type.
