Upcoming functionality

Upcoming change to Schedule Statistics

We're currently developing functionality to create display groups in Schedule Statistics, similar to that which we've already supported in the Forecast tab. This will allow you to select which variables you want to display in Schedule Statistics, Dashboard, and Forecast Overview, as well as group different data types and variables onto on a single graph.

This additional flexibility means that when this functionality is released, users will be required to set up display groups to define which data is accessible in Schedule Statistics before they are able to see any variables in Schedule Statics, including optimal headcount calculations. This must be done by someone with access to Account Settings > Variable Settings. We will provide more information about how this can be configured closer to release.

New functionality

Release date October 26, 2021

Part time absence

In this release, we've added a new way of splitting shifts during a part time absence when an employee has multiple shifts per day. It's now possible to split those shifts per day instead of per shift.

Split per day

In the example below, we will add a part time absence for an employee that has two shifts per day on three days:

When you add an absence and enter a part time percentage, you'll now be presented with a new option Split per day:

When you've selected to split the shifts per day, these options will be presented in the drop-down where you select what should happen with the shifts:

Keep the start of the day: The absence will be added to the shifts in the end of the day based on the selected percentage.

Keep the end of the day: The absence will be added to the shifts in the beginning of the day based on the selected percentage.

Once you've selected one of the options above and saved, the absence will be added and your shift will be split accordingly:

When selecting split per day, it’s not possible to choose different actions for different days. All days will be split the same.
When selecting split per shift, Quinyx will split the shift the same way it did before this release.

Updates and performance improvements

We've made an improvement to prevent duplicate shifts from being created when deleting an absence.

Bug fixes

  • Resolved an issue that produced the error message “You cannot change home unit” when attempting to change the home unit on a local manager who had staff category set to staff. 
  • Resolved an issue that when using UTC +02:00 prevented giving an employee a role after the employee was created if the role was added on the same day or later than the start date.

  • Resolved a Punched hours report issue that caused the nominal hours to display two decimals when group by date was selected but when group by selected period was chosen the nominal hours didn’t display decimals.

We encourage all our customers to make use of our APIs to maintain data and make sure that information is up to date. To ensure scalability of our APIs while growing our customer and user base, we have decided to add restrictions on usage of our SOAP APIs. These restrictions will be enforced programmatically and means that we will enforce a limit on concurrent calls per customer to 10. You should expect response code 429 if you happen to exceed this limit and you are recommended to implement a backoff retry mechanism to handle the limit. Note that the limit applies to SOAP only. When moving from SOAP to Rest over the following years, any limits will be built into the API. Please make sure to forward this information to the party within your company responsible for integrations.
