Release highlights

Release 12.2.0 introduces several new features and enhancements. The following features are highlighted in this release:

 

PeopleClues® integration

Avionté offers the option to integrate with PeopleClues®, a candidate assessment software provider. By integrating an assessment testing solution into your applicant process, you can ensure you are matching the best candidates with the positions you place.

 

Startsheets are now accessible from within the Order section

A startsheet can now be viewed and printed from within the Order section for a selected order. Previously, viewing or printing a startsheet for an order was available through QuickPlace. The option to do so is now available through the Order section’s Action menu or through a shortcut button.  A start sheet for each assignment in the order is sent to your local printer.

 

Email paycheck stub action now available in Payroll section

An enhancement in the Payroll section adds the Email Paycheck Stub action and shortcut which allows users to manually choose to email paycheck stubs once the payroll batch is posted. Also, messages are not logged in Favorites and the Employee section, unlike emails automatically sent when a payroll batch is posted.

 

Automatic paycheck email action

Another enhancement with paychecks allows for automatic emailing of paycheck stubs to employees after the payroll batch is posted. A pop-up window will appear once the payroll batch is posted, indicating a number of employees are set up with email, allowing the user to choose whether to email the check stubs. To receive email pay stubs, an employee must have their email information set up in Avionte. Paycheck stubs are sent in html format. To support this feature, three new properties are found in Admin Tools for the Employer option: EmailPayCheckStubBodyTextStart, EmailPayCheckStubBodyTextEnd, and EmailPayCheckStubSubjectText. In addition, a configuration option for Supplier is included that indicates whether to send the email via mass mail. This option is AutoEmailPayStub.

 

PDF merges and time card attachments

A new configuration option, MergeInvoice&AttachmentPDF allows for an invoice to be merged with an attached time card in PDF format. This config option property is found in Admin Tools under Supplier > EmployerSetting. If the property is set to True, the invoice is merged with the attached time card in PDF format when viewed from Preview Invoice of the Billing and Invoice sections, and when sending the email from the Invoice section. To support this option, the Invoice Style must be set to "AvionteDefaultInvoice with TIME Card" and the Show Time Card option in the Billing Setup section for the customer must be set to Yes.

 

Edocument wizard now available in Employee portal

An enhancement in the Edocument section of the Employee portal allows for the completion and electronic signature of Edocuments using a wizard option. The Edocuments wizard is available to both the employee and the employer. In addition, the Sign Edocument option enables users to sign one or multiple Edocuments instantly.

 

Multiple paycheck clearing support

An enhancement in the Paycheck section provides the ability to clear multiple checks at a time. To support this new feature, two stored procedures are used: pck_GetPayCheckClearSearch and pck_ClearPaycheck. Also, a new configuration option in Usersettings has been added: AllowMassPaycheckClear. This option allows or disallows the clearing of multiple paychecks. When False (default value), the Clear checks button in Paycheck search options is hidden, otherwise it is available for use.

 

Task recurrence now available

An enhancement in the Task section now allows users to create tasks with recurrence. If recurrence is set in the Task recurrence wizard, then a new task with the same name is regenerated again for a certain defined interval when the previous task is completed.

 

Also, in the Contacts > Message section, a new Recurrence button appears when the message is made a task. On clicking Recurrence, the Task recurrence wizard opens, allowing the task to regenerate after certain defined intervals when the previous task is completed. This is visible on the Message tab as well as on the horizontal Message Panel after the page is refreshed.

 

Schedule Calendar improvements, including display by branch

The Schedule Calendar, accessed via the Start Page, Employee section, or Customer section has several enhancements. Among the improvements is a Group by Branch option that displays schedules by selected branches. Full week view now shows all days of the week from left to right. Schedules can now be viewed as all day events, rather than listed by the hour. Schedules are now color coded to indicate whether they are open, partially complete, or filled. A View All option displays all schedules in a pop-up window when the calendar cannot accommodate larger numbers of schedules. An enhanced tooltip has been added to schedule items in Branch grouping.

 

Portal property override capability

An enhancement to the Admin Portal Property Setting screen now enables overrides on the property through the addition of an Enable Override option and an Override by drop-down list. This means any web portal property can now be overridden at the Supplier, Site or Site Group level.

Ticket #

Component

Description

DEV-25891

Admin Tools

A new configuration option, AllowPrintSearchResult, has been added that disables the ability for a user to print search results. This provides a level of data security when situations with particular users may arise. The config option can be found in Admin Tools in the User > User_UserSetting options.

DEV-101191

Admin Tools

Added a new paycode FSREG (FoodService REG) and set the property "ExcludeInMinimumWageCalculation” to true which will exclude transaction items with paycode FSREG from Minimum Wage Calculation.

DEV-112056

Admin Tools

An enhancement for Avionte users defined as Super users now allows permission to the other branches of the root staffing supplier in Admin Tools when that user is granted access to one of the suppliers. Exceptions to this are Employer Wccode and Bank, as it only shows the permitted branches for the supplier instead of from the root staffing supplier.

DEV-26088

Admin Tools

An enhancement has been made to the Employee Background Check results grid. HireGuide is used to track the status of the background check document request. Initially, the value of HireGuide is empty when the request for a background check on a selected employee is initiated. Once a background check document is received, the value is changed to either Proceed (passed background check), Review (more information needed

to make determination), or Stop (failed background check).

DEV-27859

Admin Tools

The new form Config Edit Mask Type is available in Admin Tools. It currently allows masks to be applied to the data entered and displayed in the Employee section's Contact Method page.

DEV-27824

Admin Tools

An enhancement has made to Admin Tools Employer section. The "Is SuperUser" checkbox indicates those individuals that have been defined as Avionte super users. The super user can select any branches from the user permission section regardless of the branches that the user is assigned to, and make the selected branches visible to other users or themselves. Additionally, a super user can change a default branch to any branch in the system for a user, even if the user didn't have permission to that branch. Super users can also edit user information and user permissions for other users. The Super User permission can be removed in Admin Tools, but cannot be granted through the user interface.

DEV-25791

Admin Tools

An enhancement in Admin Tools' Skill Code section allows you to indicate a skill code is to be defined as a skill. If the IsSkill checkbox is checked, the code will appear in all skill sections of the application. When unchecked, the skill code is not visible or available in any skill sections. You may want to uncheck this if the skill code actually pertains to a particular job position, and not a skill necessary for a job.

DEV-25839

Admin Tools

An enhancement in the Admin Tools > Supplier Site section allows for the ability to place branches (sites) into a branch (site) group. "Supplier Site Type" and "Site Group Name" are the two options provided to define whether the branch is a site or site group, and the name of the site group under which the branches (sites) are to be grouped. Once a branch group is created, portal properties can be set to override at the branch group level in the Admin portal.

DEV-18994

Admin Tools

An enhancement was made to the Supplier Detail tab in Admin Tools by adding a Country drop-down list in the Address area for the supplier.

DEV-24116

Admin Tools, Employee

The Config Bank section has been completed in Admin Tools > System. This section allows users to add, edit, and delete banks (depending on the user permission).

 

In bank setup, only those banks that have their IsActive status set to True are displayed in the drop-down list of banks in the employee's Bank Setup. Also, to display the list, the Site config option AllowDropDownEmployeeBankName must be set to True (Branch Setting).

DEV-103551

Admin Tools, Reports

In Admin Tools, an enhancement now provides an edit dialog box in the Value List Source field of the Advance Query Parameter for Report > Advance Query Tab. This allows the users to view a long value as it is entered, instead of seeing just a portion of the long value within the grid.

DEV-115733

Admin Tools, SMTP Email

The Email Profile option available through the Start Page's Action menu is now setup with the wizard control. It is configured through Admin Tools > System > Wizard. There are two screens “Email Profile Add” and “Share Email Profile” that are available through the Email Profile wizard control. The “Email Profile Add” tab is visible by default and “Share Email Profile” tab is not visible by default.

DEV-102161

DEV-19783

An enhancement was made to Summary screens for Agency, Contact, Customer, and Employee so that the Contact Method value appears highlighted for better visibility. This allows the user to quickly find contact information.

DEV-26576

Agency, Customer, Employee, Order- DH, Order-Temp

The Extra and Interview tabs in the Employee, Customer, Order, Order_DH, and Agency sections have been enhanced to include dynamic search filtering on the grid contents. This provides for an easy way to find out if a label has already been chosen when the grid contains a lot of

data.

EDocuments in the Employee section have been enhanced to provide the ability to control whether a user can view, edit, or delete EDocuments.

The EmployeeEdocumentHideList property controls whether a user can see particular EDocuments in the EDocuments list. The AllowDeleteEdocument property controls whether a user can delete an EDocument. In addition, a configuration option for the Employer has

been added, EDocumentListSP, which specifies the custom stored procedure that contains the list of EDocuments for that employer.

DEV-101184

DEV-27856

Assignment, Customer, Employee, Order - Temp, Scheduler, Unemployment

A new tab, Assignment Schedule, is available on the Repeat Assignment wizard in the Order section and in QuickPlace. This allows the user to enter schedule details for an assignment.

Choosing New Assignment allows the user to modify pay and bill rates for the assignment, whereas the Repeat Assignment option disallows changes to the pay and bill rate.

DEV-27782

Assignment, Order

- Temp

An enhancement was made to the Assignment section for Orders, Customers, and Employees. A new tab called Schedule has been added that displays schedule information such as start and end dates, and whether the assignment is active; and also displays pay and bill rate information for the selected assignment.

DEV-16886

Billing

An enhancement to the Billing section adds a new horizontal panel named Email Sent. The addition of this panel helps users see the email addresses to which the invoice has been sent.

DEV-103465

Billing

The config option InvoiceStaffingSupplierSite has been added with a default value of CustomerBranch. This property is found at Admin Tools > Config Option > Supplier > EmployerSetting. Another value for this property is UserStaffingSupplierSite. If set to this property, it will set the branch as the user's default branch for all invoices in that billing batch. Any other value than UserStaffingSupplierSite will set the invoice branch to its corresponding Customer's branch.

 

This option is mainly used when there are multiple staffing suppliers that need to share the same customer. This option allows the users to use the correct branch for the invoice i.e., based on which branch the invoice is being processed from, rather than always using the same customer's branch.

DEV-102504

Billing, Invoice

A new config option, MergeInvoice&AttachmentPDF allows for an invoice to be merged with an attached time card in PDF format. This config

option property is found in Admin Tools under Supplier >

EmployerSetting.

 

If the property is set to True, the invoice is merged with the attached time card in PDF format when viewed from Preview Invoice of the Billing and Invoice sections, and when sending the email from the Invoice section. To support this option, the Invoice Style must be set to

"AvionteDefaultInvoice with TIME Card" and the Show Time Card option in the Billing Setup section for the customer must be set to Yes.

 

If the property is set to False, the invoice is displayed in the Report

Viewer only, and the attached time card is not visible.

DEV-112353

Calendar and Task

An enhancement in the Task section now allows users to create tasks

with recurrence. If recurrence is set in the Task recurrence wizard, then a new task with the same name is regenerated again for a certain defined interval when the previous task is completed.

 

Also, in the Contacts > Message section, a new Recurrence button appears when the message is made a task. On clicking Recurrence, the Task recurrence wizard opens, allowing the task to regenerate after certain defined intervals when the previous task is completed. This is visible on the Message tab as well as on the horizontal Message Panel after the page is refreshed.

DEV-17441

Contact, Customer

An enhancement in the Customer and Contact sections adds a new record type of Purged, similar to that found in the Employee and Order sections. When a status is changed, the record type is also changed accordingly. This addition enables users to easily find inactive customer and contact records.

The new config option RequirementCheckBoxValue has been added under Admin Tools > Config Option > Supplier > EmployerSetting.

The Data Frenzy web service has been added in this release to support the ability to upload resumes from Data Frenzy into Avionte core application.

DEV-101030

eDocs

An enhancement has been added to the Employee portal's eDocument section. When an employer enters a pass code and enables the ability to enter the employer's signature, the employer can complete the eDocument from within the Employee portal. Before, this had to be done from the core application. Now, the employer verification and signature can be performed within the Employee portal. The Web_EmployerSignature_PassCode property in the Admin Portal's Admin property settings has been added to support this feature and provides a way to set the pass code for enabling the employer signature option.

DEV-114784

eDocs

An enhancement in the Employee EDocument section adds the View PDF and Save PDF buttons. If Auto Generate PDF is set to False on an EDocument, the Save PDF button allows users to manually save Edocuments to PDF format. The View PDF button allows users to open and view EDocuments that are saved to PDF format. Also, the Download as PDF button displayed with an EDocument on the web portal has been removed.

DEV-103801

eDocs

An enhancement to the EDocuments section of the Avionte web portal now requires a pass code to be entered before any employer signatures can be entered in EDocuments. The use of the pass code prevents the EDocuments being signed by anyone other than the employer. In addition, the signature button is now disabled when the electronic signature pad is not used, and displays when the pad is used.

DEV-103865

eDocs

The EDocumentViewOptions property specifies which signature buttons are shown in the EDocument section of the Employee portal. Buttons for employee and for employer can be enabled, and when enabled, the respective users can select multiple EDocuments and then click the signature button to sign those selected documents all at once. The values that can be set to this property are EE_SignAtOnce (for employee) and ER_SignAtOnce (for employer).

DEV-103907

Employee, Scheduler

In the Employee > Schedule section, both the employee schedule and employee assignments are now visible in the same Scheduler view. This allows users to view the schedules and assignments of an employee to better understand availability.

 

For example, an employee may be assigned to work from 2:00 - 6:00 PM, and is willing to work till 10 PM. This information can be shown in the same scheduler view by displaying assignments as 2-6 PM and availability till 10 PM.

DEV-103899

Employee, Scheduler

The Order search results grid has been enhanced to now include the status of schedules that are part of an order.

Use the Field Chooser to display or hide the Schedule Status column in the grid.

DEV-112441

DEV-101188

Import/Export, Weekly Process

An enhancement to the Import Export section now enables you to clear out existing data from an import specific table, allowing you to import new data from a selected file.

DEV-24962

A new enhancement in Order Schedule > End Assignment are of the Order section and End assignment section controls whether the end date is validated and required.

An enhancement to the Outlook Addin provides a new option for saving an attachment as a Document in Avionte. A new Avionte menu item in Outlook, "Save as Document," enables the user to save a document attached to an email.

 

Once the document is saved in Avionte, the saved document is attached to those entities which are linked to the email.

DEV-27566

Outlook - Integrated

The new Outlook Addin enhancement allows users to parse resumes from within Outlook (text and document), sync tasks and appointments, attach emails as messages to an employee or contact, and create new

employees and contacts. All of these features can be performed within Outlook, without having to go into Avionte.

DEV-101257

Payroll

A new enhancement allows for automatic emailing paycheck stubs to employees after the payroll batch is posted. A pop-up window will appear once the payroll batch is posted, indicating a number of employees are

set up with email, allowing the user to choose whether to email the check stubs. To receive email pay stubs, an employee must have their email information set up in Avionte. Paycheck stubs are sent in html format. To support this feature, three new properties are found in Admin Tools for the Employer option: EmailPayCheckStubBodyTextStart, EmailPayCheckStubBodyTextEnd, and EmailPayCheckStubSubjectText.

DEV-103205

If a user needs to select a certain group of transactions based on the filter criteria, the user can first filter out the transactions by providing the search criteria, and then can click the Select Filtered Item button to select those filtered transactions, thereby eliminating the manual way of selecting each transaction individually.

DEV-26023

Payroll

An enhancement in the Paycheck section provides the ability to clear multiple checks at a time. To support this new feature, two stored procedures are used: pck_GetPayCheckClearSearch and pck_ClearPaycheck. Also, a new configuration option in Usersettings has been added: AllowMassPaycheckClear.

Four web portal properties were added to hold the new text (Web_JobBoard_RequireLogin_ContinueTitleText, Web_JobBoard_RequireLogin_ContinueInstructionText, Web_JobBoard_RequireLogin_ContinueButtonText, and Web_JobBoard_RequireLogin_ContinueNoteText). The existing web portal property, Web_JobBoard_RequiredLogin_Note, which defined the "apply online" link sentence text, is no longer used. The login button on the Job Board login page will now disable when the form is submitted, providing improved feedback to the user and preventing them from attempting to log in multiple times. When applying for a job from the Job Board, either as a new or returning applicant, the confirmation page will no longer redirect the user automatically. Instead, a button click is required, giving the user an opportunity to see and understand what the next step is. The web portal property Web_Applicant_ReturnToJobBoardButtonText was added to define the button text.

DEV-117830

Portals – Time

Clock

Automatic timeout functionality was added to Time Clock entry page. If the user does not submit within the configured amount of time, the Time Clock will automatically go back to the ID Input page. The amount of time is defined by the new MaximumSubmitTime time clock property, which defaults to 60 seconds. Setting the property to 0 will disable the timeout behavior.

DEV-24787

QuickPlace

The QuickPlace Order grid has been enhanced to include summary counts on the Order ID, Required, and Placed columns. This provides a quick total count of the items in each column.

DEV-102739

Resume Parser

A new tab, Employee Extra, has been added in Resume Parser wizard where users can enter additional information for an employee. The Employee Extra tab added in Resume Parser is the same that already found in the New Employee wizard.

DEV-103911

Scheduler

The Schedule Calendar, accessed via the Start Page, Employee section, or Customer section has several enhancements. Among the improvements is a Group by Branch option that displays schedules by selected branches. Full week view now shows all days of the week from left to right. Schedules can now be viewed as all day events, rather than listed by the hour. Schedules are now color coded to indicate whether they are open, partially complete, or filled. A View All option displays all schedules in a pop-up window when the calendar cannot accommodate larger numbers of schedules. An enhanced tooltip has been added to schedule items in Branch grouping.

DEV-101643

Time Entry

A new feature in the Billing and Invoice sections of Avionte allows users to attach time card documents to each invoice. The supported formats for attachments are Pdf, Doc, Jpeg, Png, Tif/Tiff and Xls.  Previously, the users were only able to attach time cards at the transaction level, which forced users who process the billing to attach the time card to each transaction. The attached time cards can be viewed in the Invoice Preview.

DEV-20743

Time Entry

An enhancement to Time Entry now determines whether to calculate the bill hour with the weighted pay and bill rates for employees that have worked on different assignments for two customers (with one customer being the parent customer, and the other being a department for that customer (same root customer).

 

When the new config option EmployerSetting property

OTPlanBasedOnRootCustomer is set to RootCustomer, then it calculates the average bill rate as for the lastly inserted transaction's OT bill rate if the regular hours are over 40 (including all other transactions for that employee under the same customer with different departments)

 

Average Billrate = SUM(ROUND(tei.ItemBill, 2)) * 1.50 / SUM(ROUND(tei.BillUnit, 2))

 

When the property's value is None it does not calculate the average bill rate.

DEV-27865

Time Entry

The Time Entry section has been enhanced by adding the ability to create a billing transaction for a background check. This is done through the Time Entry action menu item Create Billing Transaction from Background

Check. Once the billing batch for this transaction is posted, the status and invoice number are reflected in the background check detail accordingly.

DEV-102648

Weekly Process

A confirmation window now appears when a user chooses the Close Accounting Period option in the Weekly Process section. It verifies that the user wants to close the accounting period. Previously if this option was chosen by accident, the user had no way to cancel out of the action.

Accounts

Receivable

An issue was fixed where all branches were being displayed in the AR main screen, regardless of the ShowBranchFromAllSupplier setting (the property value was being ignored).

DEV-121453

Accounts

Receivable

An issue was fixed when creating an AR invoice with an invoice type of unapplied cash. It was showing a positive balance amount and was reflecting the same amount under the invoice and bill amount.

DEV-123995

Accruals

Fixes were made in the logic for accrual calculations where the current date was being used rather than the accounting period date, and for updating the balance amount after the insert of a negating employee accrual item record.

DEV-26644

Admin Tools

A new Data Requirement Message (DRM) has been added which verifies if the staffing supplier of the current user is different from that of the Employees, Assignments, Orders, and Agencies staffing supplier.

 

If the staffing supplier is found to be different, the system restricts from processing the time entry transactions.

DEV-103944

Admin Tools

A fix was made in the Sales Tax section of Admin Tools so that users can now change the start date and end date of the county sales tax. It also allows for the addition of new tax rates. The following conditions need to be met for saving the new tax rates:

1. The start and the end dates of the county taxes must be between the

start and the end dates of the State tax.

2. Multiple tax rates for counties can be entered only if they don't overlap each other's date ranges and also follow the first condition.

3. Start date should always be less than end date.

4. Duplicate entries are not allowed.

DEV-115359

Admin Tools

A problem was fixed in Admin Tools, where the requirements set for employee, customer, order, etc., were not correctly displaying the proper choices in drop-downs for those entities as defined in Config Choice.

DEV-104296

Admin Tools

Admin Tools was updated to allow contact methods to be deleted for a selected employer on the Detail, Branch, and User tabs. By right-clicking a contact method, the user can choose the Delete Contact Method option. A contact method defined as "Is Primary" cannot be deleted and a warning message will indicate so upon a save attempt.

DEV-102695

Admin Tools

An issue in Admin Tools was fixed where an update to a branch was not retaining the update to its parent supplier. Instead, it would set the root supplier as its parent.

DEV-103734

Admin Tools

An issue was fixed in a case that when any configuration option is set at the group level, then the changes should be correctly applied to all the users defined to that group.

DEV-27868

Admin Tools

An issue was fixed where in the case where the config option LogRosterAttendanceCodeMessage was set to True, it was not correctly displaying prompts to log messages when changing Attendance Codes in either the Employee>Roster main screen, the Assignment Schedule Roster wizard, and Customer > Roster and Assignment > Roster. The config option can be found in Admin Tools at Config Option > Supplier > EmployerSetting > LogRosterAttendanceCodeMessage.

DEV-102529

Admin Tools

An issue with Dynamic Panels was fixed where a new or existing panel could be set to the same name and category of an existing dynamic panel, overwriting the existing panel. Now a message appears when this situation occurs, and the overwrite is prevented.

DEV-101578

Admin Tools

Fixed an issue with a save confirmation message not appearing in Resume

Term Mapper and with Mapping Type Data in Import Export Mapping.

DEV-112061

Admin Tools

Proper masking has been applied to the mentioned sections

DEV-120356

Admin Tools

An issue was fixed by creating a new EmployerSetting config property: ShowUserFromAllSupplier. This property controls when users from different suppliers are displayed in the Users drop-down list within Avionte. If set to True, then users from different suppliers are available to the current user (limited to the users that exist in all selected branches in branch settings). If False, then just those users from the current user's default supplier and selected branch settings are made visible.

DEV-121108

Admin Tools

The Config Choice property IsEmployeeRequirement was not displaying values in the expected manner. This has been fixed so that drop-down lists do not allow free text entry.

DEV-122613

Admin Tools

A fix was made to ensure that the ShowOnlyLastFourDigitSSN property was only showing the last four digits of the Social Security number when enabled. However, if the AllowChangeSSN config option is enabled for a user, that user will be allowed to edit and view the entire SSN.

DEV-119290

Admin Tools

An issue was fixed in Admin Tools where the user setup for an employer was not displaying the Web Login button in certain situations.

DEV-112678

Admin Tools, Customer

An issue with users being able to type in or select a status that was not active for any branch was fixed. Now the list only allows for entering and selecting of active statuses.

DEV-101797

Admin Tools, Portals - Job Board

A new Job Board portal property Web_Allow_PartialApplicantToApply can be set to allow or disallow partial applicants from the Bob Board portal. Partial applicants are those applicants who do not complete the online applicant process fully (all the way through to clicking the submit button).

DEV-102527

Admin Tools, Reports

The Acquisition Date column was removed from Advance Query.

DEV-27826

Advanced Search

An issue was fixed with a time out error occurring when the system has a large amount of data and a particular combination of search variables was submitted.

DEV-101998

Advanced Search

An issue has been fixed with shared advanced searches. Users who did not create the shared searches were able to modify the searches. This problem can now be controlled by the addition of the config option AllowModifySavedSearch. If the option is set to True, the non-owners of the searches can still modify the searches. However, if this option is set to False, the non-owner is prevented from editing the searches. Owners of the shared searches can make modifications to the searches regardless of the value set in this property.

DEV-115015

Advanced Search

An issue was fixed in Advanced Search. If an order had a Candidate added and a user tries to add the same employee as a candidate to that order through Advance Search, it would incorrectly change the C-status to Candidate.

DEV-104295

Agency

An issue was fixed where the Service provider and Call columns in Contact Method tabs were not displaying at times, when they actually should have been visible (when enabled via the AllowTextMessaging configuration option for hiding or showing the cell phone provider).

DEV-104666

Agency, Contact Roles, Customer, Order - DH, Order - Temp

In the Contact role tab of any section there are now two options to delete a contact. If a contact is selected and right-clicked, you can either choose to delete the contact role or unlink the contact and delete contact role.

 

If Delete Contact Role(s) is selected, it deletes the contact role, but the link with the contact remains as before. If Unlink Contact and Delete Contact Role(s) are selected, then it deletes the contact role and the link with the contact is also removed.

DEV-118307

Assignment

An issue was fixed in the Assignment section when an assignment with an accrual plan already involved in payroll was not showing a proper message that the accrual plan could not be deleted. If it is not involved in payroll then it should allow for plan deletion.

DEV-112755

Assignment

An issue was fixed so that now when new assignments are created for an order having order shifts, the shifts are also correctly displayed in the assignment as well.

DEV-111941

Assignment

In Deduction setup, error messages were corrected when displayed for invalid entries for Deduction A/C Period, Equipment, Refund A/C period, Credit A/C Period and Refund Note.

DEV-102061

Assignment

In Front Office, an issue with rates not populating correctly in the Detail screen for an assignment was fixed.

DEV-123319

Assignment

When scheduling an assignment rate change, the ability to adjust the dates in the assignment rate change wizard is now included. It was found that a person processing the rate change did not have a way to change the end date and enter a new start date from within the rate change wizard.

DEV-113021

Assignment, Customer, Employee, Order - Temp, Time Entry, Unemployment

An issue with conflicts between an old schedule and new schedule. Now, if the old assignment schedule begins before the new assignment schedule, then until the new assignment schedule start date has been reached, the old schedule is the active schedule. Once the start date is reached, the old schedule is updated to inactive and the end date of new schedule is also not changed.

DEV-22572

Assignment, Employee, Scheduler, Time Entry

Several fixes were made under this ticket.

 A problem was fixed that occurred when a user tried to open the

Calendar. An error would appear, indicating a key already exists.

An issue was fixed that occurred when double-clicking a task in the start page horizontal panel. It would navigate to Employee Message. It now correctly navigates to the Task section.

 A fix was made to correct an Employee Schedule screen error that occurred when the employee assignment's end date was null.

 The EmployeeBank config option property AllowAlphaNumericDirectDepositAccountNumbers logic was found to be working incorrectly.

 A problem was found where users were not allowed to edit assignment dates for an inactive order. This was fixed so users can edit assignment dates regardless of the order status. A problem with time card attachments not handling the TIFF file format was corrected.

DEV-111836

Assignment, Equipment Deduction Tracking

An issue with right-click functionality for deleting equipment on the Deduction tab of the Order Assignment wizard was fixed. By right-clicking a row in the grid, an equipment entry can now be deleted.

DEV-27549

Assignment, Order

- Temp

A fix was made in the Assignment Detail section where previously the user was not asked to log a message even though the assignment end date was entered or modified. Thus, the terminated/ended assignment information was not made known to the associated employees,

customers and users. Now, the system allows the user to log the message

by prompting the user to log the message whenever an end date is changed in assignment section. This allows the user to attach the message to the associated employees, customers and users on terminating the assignment.

DEV-104726

Billing

The ability to customize Billing Batch Summary on the Home page of the Billing section has been added. To support this option, the BillingBatchSummarySP property was added to the EmployerSetting config option types. By default, this is set to Avionte's default procedure, but can be set to a customized stored procedure.

DEV-102521

Billing, Customer, Invoice

An issue was fixed where only the latest payment was being displayed, so invoice amounts were not always correct. An additional column for total invoice payments to date was added to ensure that the invoice amount equals the balance amount plus payment amounts.

DEV-116261

Billing, Invoice

An issue was found with merging invoices. The system should select only invoices related to the particular customer. The system selects invoices looking at the invoice number, but this was an issue if there were multiple suppliers and invoices with the same number. Now, when two invoices with the same invoice number are generated for different suppliers, on an attempt to merge an invoice from one of the suppliers, the other supplier’s invoice number doesn’t appear in the invoice merge grid.

DEV-111835

Calendar and Task

An issue was fixed with calendar reminders not displaying correctly. Now, the calendar reminders display on time even if the user is in the windows other than Calendar. Also, the reminder displays on restarting or opening the application again.

DEV-116865

Call-Em-All

An issue was fixed in a case that gave a user access to Call-Em-All at the user level. Previously, all Call-Em-All configurations were set at the branch level. Now, the Call-Em-All configuration is performed at the user level. Also, the ability to apply the settings to all users in a branch on the

Config Option By FKName tab has been added.

DEV-123206

Candidate

A fix has been made on the New Message window that appears when creating a message in Direct Hire Orders. The wrong candidate name was being displayed, even though the message was linking to the correct candidate.

DEV-27366

Candidate, Order - Temp

A fix was made to an issue where order messages and employee messages were not displaying on the Messages tab in the Candidate section of DH_Orders or Temp Orders.

DEV-112545

Candidate, Order - Temp

An issue was fixed where persons applying for a job through web entry had their origin record set to wizard entry. Now, the origin of a candidate/employee added for orders from the web portal or external sites is set to Portal Entry.

 

Also, an already existing candidate for an order being added to an order from the Avionte job board is properly checked for duplicate entry. (Note: Candidate applying from external sites is assumed to be applying for multiple orders.)

DEV-101164

Contact

A fix was made to an issue where the Description and Active columns were not appearing for all Contact Method sections of Avionte. The columns now appear as expected.

DEV-111942

Contact Roles, Customer

An issue was fixed in the case that after a contact is created in the Contact Role tab of the New Customer Wizard, it should show the Primary checkbox checked by default when viewing the contact through the Contact Role submenu of the Contact section.

DEV-23142

Customer

A Customer Credit Limit Warning counter is now available to track the number of those customers who have exceeded their credit limit.

DEV-26599

Customer

An issue was fixed in the Customer section where skills checked as required were not correctly flowing to the customer's orders and direct hire orders. Now, the required skills flow down to a customer's orders as required.

DEV-115734

Customer

While placing a temp order in the Customer section, an error occurred if the Extra tab was not filled with values. Now, it does not error out, indicating the requirement value cannot be null.

DEV-27153

Dynamic Panel

An issue was fixed where a user with multiple paychecks open in the Paycheck section used the Current Paycheck # dropdown to move from one paycheck to another, and when doing so, the dynamic panels were not updating properly.

DEV-112585

eDocs

In the EDocument sections of the Avionte web portal, an issue was fixed so the checkbox and employee signature button are visible in each row for the EDocuments. This helps the user to select the required EDocument and then digitally sign the document.

DEV-102320

eDocs

Several issues in the I9-2012 EDocument were fixed. These included incorrect handling of expiration date validation, Alien Receipt Card, and Resident Card.

DEV-24122

Employee

A change was made to the way dates are entered in the Employee past jobs section. Previously, the system required MM/DD/YYYY as the date format. The date format now is MM/YYYY.

DEV-102362

Employee

An issue has been fixed with departments of customers not showing up in the vertical panels when working with Employee Customer DNA.

DEV-117407

Employee

An issue was fixed in the Employee, Order and DH Order sections to prevent existing text from being selected by default in the Interview edit sections. Now, existing text is not selected by default, which helps prevent the text from being accidentally deleted during edit.

DEV-103030

Employee

An issue with users having the ability to change Social Security Numbers and Employee IDs has been fixed. Now, the Employee ID is displayed as read only. The SSN field can be set to either read only or editable, based on the value of the new config option AllowChangeSSN. This option is accessed through the User>EmployeePermission>AllowChangeSSN property.

DEV-27701

Employee

In Employee Deduction Setup, a fix was made to an error that occurred when saving an employee deduction.

DEV-117643

Employee

In Tax Setup of the Employee section, if a column was changed, added, or removed from the tax grid, the grid preference was not being saved.

Now, it is saved in Start Page > View > Grid Preference. Thus, after closing

Tax Setup and later opening it, the same grid preference is visible until the grid preference is removed.

DEV-101577

Employee

In the Employee Past Jobs screen and the New Employee wizard, the Date Verified control always appeared disabled. A fix was made by adding a Config Option property in Admin Tools: allowEditPastJobVerifiedDate. When set to True, the Date Verified control is editable. When set to False, the control appears disabled.

DEV-23979

Employee

Previously, a validation on an employee SSN was done based on the supplier of the current user. This has been modified by enforcing a validation on employee SSN such that it now validates against the supplier of the employee thereby restricting the duplicate SSN for multiple employees.

DEV-102528

Employee

The Pay History page for an employee was not allowing the "group by" column functionality as found on the Work History page, for example. This issue has been fixed.

DEV-111939

Employee, Messages

An issue was fixed with the Email Paycheck Stub option, where after posting a payroll batch and sending email using Outlook > Send Individual Email option, the message that was logged in the Employee > Message section and Message horizontal panel incorrectly displayed the email template data. Now, the correct email content is displayed.

DEV-116979

Employee, Payroll

An issue was fixed for an incorrect amount format on the Lower and Upper limit fields found in Payroll Deduction's Rate Setup tab for an employee.

DEV-102762

DEV-117583

Employee, Payroll

An issue was fixed with the proper populatation of the bank drop-down list after adding a new bank and allowing users to select from the drop- down for multiple banks for the rest of their session. To support the functionality to allow a user to select a bank or manually enter and create a bank, the AllowDropDownAndAddEmployeeBankName Site>Branch Setting config option was added.

DEV-120413

Employee, Portals

Fixed an issue where ampersands were being stripped from messages. This caused an error when users tried to connect to a website, but the ampersand in the link had been removed.

DEV-101417

Employee, Resume

Parser

An issue was fixed in a case that gave a user access to employee records that the user should not have had access to, such as deleted records or records in suppliers. This occurred when a user parsed a resume that was a duplicate of an employee that the user did not have access to. Now, the user will see a message in these cases indicating they cannot update the employee due to reasons of their permissions or the employee has been deleted.

DEV-102881

Employee, Scheduler

An issue in the Order Schedule Calendar was fixed where the display of the number required for a position and the number filled was not accurate when an order had multiple schedules.

DEV-103902

Employee, Scheduler

An issue was fixed with the assignment of an employee, where the correct candidate status was not being applied to the assignee on the order. To support this fix, a Candidate Schedule Status column has been added in place of the Status column in Order > Order Schedule > Order Candidates tab. There are three possible statuses: Assigned, Available, and Unavailable.

DEV-23810

Invoice

A fix was made where previously, whenever a user saved an invoice in PDF format, a system error occurred due to the existence of illegal characters. This has been modified by replacing all the illegal characters with the underscore (_) character.

DEV-104297

Invoice

An issue in the Invoice Correction wizard has been fixed. When the Week Worked column was filtered and values entered were not in the correct mm/dd/yyyy format, no error indication was displayed. An error message is now properly displayed.

DEV-27388

Invoice

An issue was fixed with the incorrect rounding of pay rate and bill unit calculations on a daily basis for daily invoicing. The daily invoice now provides correct rounding amounts by the day.

DEV-27394

Messages

In the New Message wizard, a fix was made so that the Show On Web option now appears as a right-click option for an "Attached To" item.

DEV-121366

Messages

An issue was fixed when filtering messages by their type in the horizontal panel. The filter was not being retained when moving from one customer to another.

DEV-27401

Orange Tree

Previously if a background check request was sent to Orange tree for an employee having multiple addresses, the response sent by Orange Tree in XML format contained only a primary address without having multiple addresses.

 

This has now been modified by allowing the user to send the background check request to Orange Tree for an employee having multiple addresses and the response received in XML format also contains those multiple addresses.

DV-121306

Order – DH

A fix was made to an issue where an advance search for direct hire orders by Job Title would not return search results in cases where it should have returned results.

DEV-114277

Order - DH

An issue was fixed in a case that when a user attempted to open new Direct Hire (DH) orders from the Customer section or New Order section, then tried to add a candidate to Dh order, an error occurred. Now, the user can create a DH order and place a candidate without the error.

DEV-116761

Order - DH

An issue was fixed in a case that when a user clicked Browse to upload a file on a new DH Order, it would default to browse for .txt files. Now, the default for browse is all files.

DEV-103664

Order - DH

An issue was fixed in the DH Order section when a candidate was assigned through the Candidate tab. In the Place Candidate wizard's User section, the users set in the Users tab of DH Order were not displaying as they should.

DEV-101259

Order - DH

In DH Order, a fix was made to an error that occurred when an attempt was made to log a message in the New Message wizard.

DEV-122774

Order-DH

A fix in the DH Order section now allows a default file location to be set when attaching a document to the order. A new config option, DHOrderDocumentBrowseFolder, has been added as a user setting to support this feature.

DEV-103754

Order - DH, Order - Temp

An issue was fixed where order types were not updating correctly when the branch was changed on the order. This occurred with temp orders and direct hire orders.

DEV-27207

For Counters on the Start Page, an issue was fixed with multiple search pages appearing when the Open Order counter link was clicked.

DEV-27231

DEV-116691

Order - Temp

An issue was fixed with the display of Worker's Comp Codes when creating a new order. Now, in the New Order wizard tab before selecting a job title, users are able to view the entire list of WcCodes set up in the system when specific WcCodes are not defined in the Customer > Order Options tab. And, if WC codes are defined in Order Options, then only those codes will appear.

A rounding error was corrected in the overtime wage adjustment procedure.

DEV-27061

Outlook - Integrated

An issue was fixed to prevent an error while trying to email invoices through Outlook. This occurred when a user set multiple email addresses in the Customer Billing Setup section separated by comma, semicolon, or both in Customer Billing Setup. Now, the user can send emails to respective recipients through both SMTP and Outlook.

DEV-104016

Outlook - Integrated

An issue was fixed with integrated Outlook in Avionte when choosing Save as Contact/Employee from the Action menu (when OutlookEmployeeIsAddressRequired is true and IsAddressRequired is True). An error message would appear when saving without an address. Now the user will see validations upon saving and cannot proceed unless all the required fields are filled. 

DEV-120780

Payroll

An issue was fixed in the Payroll section where the payroll process was not calculating deductions as pre-tax if there was hourly pay on the employee's deduction setup.

DEV-119758

Payroll

A fix was made in the Payroll section when processing payroll and there are local taxes. The default is now 0 for the employee tax exemptions and dependents, not an empty (null) value as before.

DEV-115390

Payroll

A new field "Generate Original Pay Units" has been added to the payment batch summary in the Payroll section.

DEV-104534

Payroll

The PaymentCheckStaffingSupplierSite property has been enhanced. This property determines the branch that is used for an employee's paycheck when one or more transactions for that employee are included in a payroll batch. Now, if the value is Transaction2, the branch is set to that of the employee unless multiple transactions exist with the same branch, then that branch is used. A new value, Transaction 3, will set the branch to that of the employee unless multiple transactions exist with different branches, then the branch is set to the one having the most pay units.

DEV-27298

Payroll

An issue was fixed where an error occurred during the middle of the payroll processing of a very large batch, causing Avionte to unexpectedly close.

DEV-119334

Payroll

In the Payroll section an issue was fixed where the check count for the payment batch was not updated properly in the case where a check was deleted.

DEV-112037

Payroll

An issue with void paycheck and reverse paycheck was fixed. Now, users are not allowed to edit a check number or check date in the grid of Reversal Paycheck and Void Paycheck windows.

DEV-104398

Payroll

While sending a paycheck stub through an email, a fix was made where the template placeholders were not dynamically updating to display the correct data. The placeholders now update so the correct information is sent to the email recipients.

DEV-27830

Portals

A new Site > BranchSetting config option, AutoRemoveOrdersFromJobPortal, controls whether orders on the Job Board portal can be automatically removed, by branch, as long as they are not at an Open or Partially Filled status. 

DEV-102898

Portals

Logic was added to update the UserNodePermission and UserCurrentNode records automatically for AvionteWeb to include new branches. This logic is updated in IMP_NightlyMaintenance procedure.

DEV-26898

Portals

An issue was fixed where pressing the Enter key while in a ZIP code field re-directed the user to the Applicant portal. Also, the Benefit field no longer appears on the Job Board Detail page as it was not used there.

DEV-111702

Portals

Two web portal properties have been renamed. Web_Customer_Candidate_HidePanel_List is now Web_Customer_EmployeeDetailPanel_HideList. This property controls the personal information displayed in the Customer portal on the Employee Details panel. The Web_Vendor_Candidate_HidePanel_List is now the Web_Vendor_EmployeeDetailPanel_HideList. This property controls the personal information displayed in the Vendor portal on the

Employee Details panel. Values for both properties have been changed to more descriptive text values rather than numeric values.

DEV-114072

Portals

An issue was fixed where the email address of an applicant was not being saved when entered in the Applicant portal. Now, when “Web_CheckBeforeApply_CheckType” property is set to Email, and users enter their email on the first page of the applicant portal, the same email entered in the first page is visible in the Personal info page.  This email is visible in the EmployeeApplicant table as well under CheckBeforeApplyValue column. Also, the users are able to edit the email on the Personal Info page which should be visible while logging in from the Login page in either the web or core application.

 

When “Web_CheckBeforeApply_CheckType” property is set as SSN, the users are not be allowed to enter an email address on the first page of the applicant portal. Thus, the email textbox remains blank in the Personal Info page allowing the users to enter their email address there.

    Hello,
    I was searching details on a config option Property "PaymentCheckStaffingSupplierSite" system uses in payroll to determine check branch. All I was able to find is this release note.
    Can we please add details on this Config Option along with available values we have for this and their workflow?
    Thanks,
    ~Sachin

    Additional notes on PaymentCheckStaffingSupplierSite
    The default is employee, which means that the Check Branch will be the same as the employee branch, however there are 3 additional possible options:
    Option 2: Transaction: This will set check branch by Transaction branch but if a check has more than 1 transaction with different branches, then it will pull any random branch.
    Option 3: Transaction2 : This will set check branch by Transaction branch but if a check has more than 1 transaction with different branches, then it will pull Employee's branch.
    Option 3: Transaction3 : This will set check branch by Transaction branch but if a check has more than 1 transaction with different branches, then it will pull the branch from the transaction that has more hours.
