New functionality

Schedule and Base schedule

Absence shift filter field logic

Until version 0099, absence shifts only displayed on their absences if shifts were selected in the filters. Due to popular demand, they now depend on absences being selected. User feedback made it clear that absence shifts are an integral part of absences and should therefore display as long as absences display.

Before:

Now:

Currently, absence shifts are still dependent on the shift section and shift type. We will address this in coming releases.

Badge number as a filter option

Now in both Schedule and Base schedule, you’re able to filter your employees by badge number. You can do this using the current Employee field. The badge number displays in brackets after the employee's name:

You can adjust the drop-down’s values in this field by searching for: 

  • Employee name only
  • Employee badge number only
  • Both employee name and employee badge number
General filter improvement 

Until version 0099, in both Schedule and Base schedule, selecting a value in the following fields in turn populated the employee field:

  • Home unit
  • Employee section
  • Staff category
  • Skills (in Base schedule only)

This behavior caused issues, both related to the saving of favorite filters in Schedule and also from a user experience point of view. For this reason, we changed the logic for the above fields so that it no longer populates the Employee field.

Note: For favorite filters you have saved in the past that have selections in any of the above fields, the Employee field will remain populated. In those cases we recommend you either empty the Employee field or delete the favorite filter and create it anew. This is so as to avoid the issues described above.
Shift type filter field details

In the drop-down of the Shift type filter field in Schedule and Base schedule, we now display shift types with the same details as in the shift type drop-down of the Add shift / Edit shift panel. This means:  

  • The shift type color appears in front of the shift type name.
  • After the shift type name, the times configured on the shift type will display.

This is particularly valuable for those of you who have multiple shift types with identical names but with different times.

Staff category filter field in Base schedule

For quite some time, the staff category filter field has been available in Schedule but not in Base schedule. As of this release, we’re adding that filter option to Base schedule. The field works as it does in Schedule in that: 

  • You’re able to select any staff categories defined on your account, regardless of whether or not any employees in your base schedule actually have the staff category in question.
  • Selecting a staff category displays only employees in your base schedule who have that staff category; selecting multiple staff categories displays all employees in your base schedule who have any of those staff categories.
  • Selecting a staff category leaves the Employee field unpopulated (the same behavior as described above under General filter improvement).
  • The relation between the selections in this field and those in other shift filter fields is impacted by the and/or toggle at the bottom of the filter panel.
  • Any selections in the shift status filter are considered in the base schedule hours (statistics).

Updates and performance improvements

  • We've changed the text that is displayed when you set a one time password for an employee.
  • The unit selector in People agreements now looks to what unit the person has a role on.
  • As a result of much needed performance improvements in Time, the Adjust view panel in Time will now close when you click “Apply” in the bottom left corner of the panel and reopen once the results of your request display.

Bug fixes

  • Resolved an issue in Schedule that caused inactive projects to be shown in the drop-down menu for projects when adding a shift.
