Release 7.19 – The updates keep coming! We are working hard to provide the best tools for you and your team.
ACA Updates- UI/UX
Our 7.19 release heralds the advent of several future releases where we will introduce ACA requested UI/UX changes and functionality. Employee Management > Employee Benefits >ACA Measurement Period has been switched from a drop down to two radio buttons labeled: Ongoing and Initial. We also removed the corresponding “As of Date Filter” so that all applicable measurement periods for the employee will display at once according to the selected measurement type.
Under Employee Management >Employee Benefits > ACA Report Overrides we have updated the screen to display the most recent year (e.g. 2021) as opposed to the first year on the service. This reflects our users’ most common business use case which requires current year edits.
We have also updated the “Use Monthly Measurement Period” field to a toggle switch with an “on” and “off” switch at the Client Management > ACA Set up Options > ACA Measurement Policies screen. This toggle switch comes with coded Boolean logic that automatically removes the “Initial Measurement Period” and “Initial Stability Period” when you select “on” for the “use Monthly Measurement Period” option. You will see the new flyover UI/UX box when you visit the “Eligibility” tab on the ACA Measurement Policies Screen. The “Ongoing Measurement Periods” tab has automatic calculation for “Stop Date” and “Duration” fields when the administrator fills out the “Start Date” fields in “Standard Measurement Period”, “Standard Administrative Period” and “Standard Stability Period” sections.
This feature request will permit employees to configure how their documents are organized in isolved. This in-demand functionality, which is set up at Client Management > HR Management> Document Subcategories, introduces a new grid format allowing users to easily filter, sort, and export document information. The addition of the Document Subcategory column allows users to better organize employee documents within custom subcategories. In the screen shot below, the Document Category has three subcategories: Pay Increases, Pay Notices, and Tax Documents. You create a custom subcategory by selecting “+Add New” on the navigation menu bar, selecting the appropriate “Document Category”, and typing in a custom “Subcategory” name. The Actions Column contains “Edit” and “Delete” icons which change the subcategory name and delete the subcategory within the UI/UX don’t respectively alter the employee documents themselves. Administrators and employees can delete a subcategory from the UI/UX without removing the original employee documents.
One can view the new subcategory functionality as a way of organizing employee documents within the UI/UX on the “Employee Documents” screen at Employee Management > Human Resources > Employee Documents. You can now view the preferred document by selecting the hyperlink in the eponymous Document Name column. Finally, the “Subcategory:” with no unique, listed name are those documents with no specified, selected subcategory.
Hiding Rate on Checks
isolved has historically granted its user base the ability to hide the rate for memos and earnings for salaried employees on their personalized paystub. The 7.19 release expands this previous functionality to include all employees. You will see this update as a shift from a checkbox entitled “Hide Salary Employee Rate on Check” to a “Rate Display on Check” drop down box with the following three options: Always Show Rate”, “Hide Rate for Salary Only”, and “Hide Rate for All Employees.” When this feature goes live, the client base is defaulted to “Always Show Rate” unless you have previously selected the check box ““Hide Salary Employee Rate on Check” which will select “Hide Rate for Salary Only” from the new drop-down box. Of course, all clients wanting to use the newly added, expanded functionality will select “Hide Rate for All Employees” as no one in our user base currently has this functionality.
Regenerate Payroll Files
We have added a new filter to “Show Scheduled Reports with No Data” checkbox on the Client Management > Payroll > Regenerate Payroll Files screen. This wonderful new feature filters the “Regenerate Payroll Files” output confirmation results down to those containing “NO DATA” in their “Status” column. This helps users troubleshoot why they may not have received their regularly scheduled “New Hire File” report. As you can observe in the screen shot below, the “New Hire File” has “NO DATA” as its status. This explains why the users did not receive this regularly, scheduled report during the selected week.
Share & Perform Nomination
Our 84.0 release introduces expanded functionality around Nomination within Share & Perform. When selecting the “Action Button” in the bottom right -hand corner (a round circle with a plus sign), you will see a new menu option entitled “Nominate/Award” at the bottom.
When users select that option, they will be able presented with a selection of designated awards which the organization can create to celebrate different achievements.
Clicking on the “High Five” Award option brings up the screen shot below where the user can specify the employee nominee and enter a rationale for their candidacy in the open text box. The area marked as description is where the Share and Perform administrator can provide the nominator with guidelines and suggestions for ideal candidates. Please recall that there could be nominated awards that recognize everything from bringing in cookies for colleagues to revenue generation fulfillment.
After someone is nominated, the nomination form is moved to the consolidated queue at Nominations > Approvals for review by the designated Share & Perform administrator. A designated administrator declines or approves the nomination which then moves the nomination to one of the following two tabs: Approved or Declined. Recognition which exponentially increases organizational engagement can allow points for the nominee, nominator, and winner.
