A couple of feature upgrades are available now. So take a look, and see if these changes might be useful to you.

Effective dates when assigning department and employee type fields to users

After upgrade, you’ll be able to specify exactly when a change in department or employee type occurs, and retain a history of assignments for these fields.

Effective dates can useful for things like ensuring exact department matches when selecting who to pay via the Payroll Workbench.

More flexible timesheet periods

The new timesheet periods offer everything the old ones did, but allow for assignment of no timesheet, so you can more easily manage leaves of absence.

Ability to limit access by department and employee type

This feature applies to enterprise customers only, who can use groups to limit which users administrators, supervisors, and other managers have access to.

With this upgrade, departments and employee types become groups, so you can give managers access to only certain departments or employee types. Benefits of this include:

  • Improved data security

  • Greater flexibility

  • Fewer errors

And, the ability to:

  • Limit which users display in time off calendars

  • Target notifications by group


While the vast majority of our customers qualify for this upgrade, there are a couple of limitations, including the following:

  • New departments and employee types don’t support custom fields

  • Some column and filter settings aren’t currently retained

  • Some customizations involving departments, employee types, or timesheet periods may require enhancement before upgrade

If you’re interested in this upgrade, please contact your Customer Success Manager or Replicon Support.
