This week, we launched the ability to make an editable copy of a pay rule, and we released a default pay rule for Australia. Plus, we added a new notification option related to right to disconnect, and the ability to enable SAML 2.0 within the Replicon UI. We also fixed a couple of issues.

Ability to make an editable copy of a pay rule

You can now make a copy of any pay rule in your system. This functionality allows you to make changes to the default parameters assigned in standard rules, if your organization’s policies deviate from those standards.

To make a copy, select Make a Copy from the More button on the Pay Rules list page:



Or, click the link located at the bottom, right-hand corner of a pay rule’s detail page:



Right to disconnect enhancements

Our right to disconnect functionality allows you to prevent users from receiving emails or push notifications when they aren’t working.

Previously, this was limited to allowing messages any day, or only on working days (any non-weekend, non-holiday).

Now, we’ve added an additional option: You can prevent users from receiving messages on their approved days off – so, vacations, etc. – in addition to weekends and holidays.



In addition, you can now choose whether messages sent to shift workers are sent outside their scheduled hours. Plus, scheduled reports will no longer be sent on exempt days.

Right to disconnect settings are assigned to users on the Notifications tab of their user profiles.

Ability to enable SAML from within the Replicon interface

Previously, to set up SAML 2.0, you had to access Replicon’s web services. Now, we’ve added the option to enable SAML to the Authentication Providers section of our Administrator > System and Security > Security Settings page.



Note that we’ve also moved the existing SAML 1.1 settings to the Authentication Providers section.



Refer to Using SAML for single sign-on for more information about SAML.

Improvements

  • We’ve added a default pay rule for Australia to our pay rules library that can be used to easily comply with its labor laws

Fixed issues

  • If you attempt to create a new report based on the Timesheet In/Out template, a loading error may occur
  • When approving timesheets using the Team > Approvals tab, if you click the Approve button in Approve Timesheet comment dialog twice, the timesheets will show as having been approved twice in reports
