Release Process

Avionte continuously improves its products. These improvements are installed to existing application structure; each release is a set of improvements to the previous release. The release notes are organized in a separated manner per release and are not aggregated into one page.

 

For example, in the event a customer's application is upgraded from v14.2.3 to v16.1, changes between those releases will be available through multiple sets of release notes (from 14.2.4 up to and including 16.1 notes.)

 

Navigate to Support Center > General > Release Activity to view Avionte's available release notes.

Release Versioning

Changes are rolled forward so the patch number will reset to zero for each subsequent release (i.e. 15.2.0.2 read as major release 15.2 patch 2, 15.2.1.0 read as minor release 15.2.1.). Patches will now consist of database-only changes that can be turned around quickly. Minor versions contain critical fixes and additions that go beyond a database change.

Release Highlights

Along with multiple performance optimizations, and more than sixty software corrections, the 15.1.1 release provides E-Verify improvements, updated overtime configurations for multiple states, and the introduction of Peoplenet as a time-entry integration.

 

15.1 introduces several new features and enhancements. The following features are highlighted in this release:

 

Year-End Functionality

Improved functionality around options available to manage the end of tax season.

  • Tax Recalculation: Users now have the ability to recalculate taxes in Admin Tools. When the Department of Revenue changes rates, users can now retroactively apply the changes to previously processed payroll batches.
  • IsTaxExempt Management: As an additional layer of security for tax exempt statuses, Admins and power users now have the ability to configure whether or not the IsTaxExempt checkbox is visible within the Core Application.
  • New DRMs:
    • New alert detailing the result of switching an employee to tax exempt.
    • New severe-type DRM which prevents the recalculation of employer taxes if payroll batches are currently open within the system.
  • New ConfigOption:
    • AllowShowIsTaxExempt: The IsExempt check box will be available in the Employee > Payroll > Tax section's field chooser.

 

Peoplenet Addition

Peoplenet is a time tracking service with a staffing industry focus.

  • Integration: Avionté now integrates with Peoplenet with the ability to import and export batches of entered time.

 

E-Verify Modifications

The E-Verify integration has undergone some display and functionality changes to prepare it for use with E-Verify version 27,

  • Additional Name Verification: Systems using the integrated E-Verify solution can now request additional verification if there is a name mismatch detected without leaving the application.
  • Version Support: Avionté now supports E-Verify version 27.
    Note: E-Verify Version 27 only integrates with Avionté version 14.2.4 and newer.
  • Employer Agent: The config option: EVerifyClientCompanyId has been added to hold the ID for companies which are E-Verify Employer Agents. This addresses the error message regarding missing credentials that appeared after unscheduled changes were made to the E-Verify system.
  • Enter web-service credentials by supplier: It is now possible to select if a web-service account should be linked to a specific supplier during, or after, entry.
  • Connection Test: A button to test the validity of the currently entered E-Verify web-service account credentials has been added to Start Page's action menu and Admin tool's E-Verify sections.

15.1.3

15.1.3 provides changes to the Avionté core application designed to improve invoice printing, Mass Mail validation logic, and the time card submission process. This update also includes more than 20 software corrections.

 

Release Highlights

Invoice Printing Performance

System improvements have been applied to the Billing section to decrease the amount of time required to print invoices. 

 

Mass Mail Validation

The Mass Mail validation process has been adjusted to prevent system timeouts and other errors resulting from invalid recipient email addresses. 

 

Time Card Emails

Two new portal properties have been added to control who receives emails during time approval. 

    • "Web_Time_Entry_Employee_Submit_To_CustomerEmail_Send": Controls if the employee will get a copy of their submitted time card (True) or only the Time Approver (user with the role "Time Approver" for that order) will be notified (False).
      • This property only applies when "Web_Time_Entry_Employee_Submit_SendEmail" is set to True.

    • "Web_Time_Entry_Customer_Approve_To_EmployeeEmail_Send": Controls if the time approver (user with the role of "Time Approver" for that order) gets a copy of the email (True) or only the Employee gets notified of the approval (False).
      • This property only applies when "Web_Time_Entry_Customer_Submit_SendEmail" is set to True.

The Winnovative pdf library has been replaced with ABCPDF for both paycheck and invoice viewing and emailing.

Changes:

  • Core application has been modified to use ABCpdf library instead of Winnovative PDF library while viewing, printing and emailing paychecks and invoices.
  • Infrastructure web service has been modified to use ABCpdf library instead of Winnovative PDF library, the part of service is responsible for generating PDFs for Edocuments in web portals for the hosted clients.
  • Note: Web portal is still using Winnovative PDF library to create PDFs for Edocuments(this would be for self hosted clients where Infrastructure web service is not installed)
