This week, we released some changes to the user profile, made more changes to time off policy cards, and made some small improvements to pay rules and timesheet submit behavior.

Changes to the edit user page

We’ve released the changes to the User Profile page that we announced a few weeks back. These changes improve the usability and performance of the page. They're currently only available when you’re editing a single user.

Changes include the following:

  • The page has been broken into sections, each with its own Save button; however, Save buttons only display when you’ve made a change
  • The Supervisor field has been updated and the Department field is now searchable
  • The page now offers improved performance, especially for those with many departments, supervisors, or custom field values

Changes to time off policy cards

If you use new time off, you may notice these small changes in how policy cards appear and function:

  • The description field has been removed, as it is redundant with the effective date field
  • The effective date field has been moved to the left of the policy fields and the header for each sub-policy has been removed. Since each policy card is now narrower, they are no longer collapsible.
  • In sets of policies, ‘of service’ now appears after the years, months, or days selected

Improvements

  • Previously, if you attempted to submit a timesheet that didn’t pass validation, the submit button changed to read Resubmit for Approval and resubmit comments were required, even though the timesheet wasn't successfully submitted. Now, the button retains its Submit label, and comments aren’t required upon submission.
  • In the Timesheet period validation script for configurable timesheets, you can now specify that time off be included as part of work hours, so validation doesn’t fail if employees are away
  • An unpaid time (UT) pay code is now available in the default data for those using pay rules
