Version 0085

Updated 3 months ago by Leigh Hutchens

Release date July 1, 2020

New functionality

Group Management

With this release, we introduce the third part of group management. Group management allows you to add/edit/delete sections, units, and districts. In this release, we have included delete sections and districts.

Delete Sections

Navigate to Account settings > Group management, and click on a section. A side panel opens, and at the bottom of the panel you will see a delete button.

After clicking delete, you will see a confirmation dialogue. Click OK if you want to proceed with the deletion. A message displays in the top-right corner indicating whether the deletion was successful.

Delete Districts

Navigate to Account settings > Group management and click on a district.  A side panel opens, and at the bottom of the panel you will see a delete button.

After clicking delete, you will see a confirmation dialogue. Click OK if you want to proceed with the deletion. A message displays in the top-right corner indicating whether the deletion was successful.

Note that it's not possible to delete a district if units are connected to that district. Disconnect the units from the district before proceeding with the deletion (only possible to do in Classic today).

Schedule

Interruption shifts in Neo

For those of you transitioning from Classic to Neo who are using interruption shifts, we've added a specific Interruption shifts in Neo article to help you plan your transition.

Time

With version 0085 comes the new Time tab, as well as the ability to perform payroll actions from that same tab. Read more about Time tab and Payroll actions.

The coming releases are planned with the following features in the approximate below order:

  • Generation of definitive payroll file
  • Locking of groups' schedules from preliminary and definitive payroll file modals
  • Transferring definitive payroll file to FTP server
  • District and unit group filters
  • Reversing transferred payroll items
  • Excel report / Salary details report from the Time tab
  • Unit view
    • This view will offer the ability to get a unit overview of attest status
Transfer to payroll permission

Permissions in Time depend on the Transfer to payroll permission. We describe our permissions framework here. The table below describes what behavior to expect based on how the transfer to payroll permission is configured for a given role.

Note, however, that this permission currently doesn’t take effect when activated on a role on section-level; we plan to improve this shortly.

Access

Description

“No access”

The user will get an error message when clicking the “Time” tab indicating there aren't sufficient permissions to access the page.

“Read access”

The user will be able to enter the Time tab assuming there is read access on the current unit. What’s more, the user will be able to select data for the units on which the user has read access but not perform any payroll-related actions when those have been added.

“Write access”

The user will be able to enter the Time tab assuming there is at least read access on the current unit. What’s more, the user will be able to select data for the units on which the user has read access. For the units on which the user has write access, the user is able to perform payroll-related actions when those have been added.

"Read access" is the default access for all new roles on the Transfer to payroll permission. This is also the default access for existing roles and role templates unless they have "No access" on the Scheduling < Punches permission specifically - in that case, the default access is "No access".

Time card

We continue to release Time card functionality.
