Release Process

Avionté 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 Notes to view Avionté'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).

Deprecation

Generally, "deprecation" refers to something that is acknowledged but discouraged. A software deprecation is the removal process, or discouragement of use, of an application feature. An application feature may be deprecated because it has been replaced, doesn't work as expected, or its support requirements outweigh its benefit or use.

 

Avionté release notes provide a list of items scheduled for removal as well as a list of items recently removed. 

 

 

Planned Removal

Web Portals

In upcoming releases, web portal functionality will gradually be replaced with functionality provided by the Aero platform.

Job Board

In an upcoming release, the currently used job board will be replaced with new functionality that will be made available in the Aero platform.

Instant Messaging

The Message Center's infrequently used Instant Messaging functionality will be removed in an upcoming release.

Config Option OverrideTxnGeoCodeBy

The config option OverrideTxnGeoCodeBy will be removed in an upcoming release. Due to advances in GeoCode settings in the application, the config option is no longer necessary. Unless a client has a customization dependent on this config option, there will be no effect on applications and there is no client action needed. 

 

 

Removed in this Release

None

The 16.2 release does not include the removal of any features.

 

 

Recently Removed

EDocs Main Menu Option

The inoperative "EDocs" label was removed from the Main Menu in release 15.2.1.

Silverlight

The Microsoft plugin that enabled some interactive user experience is no longer required. The plugin was removed in release 15.2.

"Generate ACH" Button

In order to improve back office system performance, the infrequently used "Generate ACH" button in Back Office > Weekly Process was removed in release 15.2.

Automated Clearing House (ACH) is an electronic network for financial transactions in the United States. An ACH payment is an electronic payment created when a customer transfers money from one account to another electronically; it is facilitated by the Automated Clearing House.

This Release Overview section provides a summary look at all of the features made available in this release. Each summary provides links that will auto-scroll down to more detailed release information which will in turn include links to the associated help articles.

 

Along with updates to the core application and the introduction of a new resume reference integration, Avionté version 16.2 releases the Aero platform to General Availability. 

 

 

Aero Overview

What is Aero? It's an updated way of managing the same data you're currently working with in the Avionté Core Application. The data you've worked hard to gather and manage is still fully accessible in the Avionté Core Application, but now, through the Aero interface, much of that data is available anytime, anywhere through a standard web browser. 

 

Scroll down for summary release information about Aero. For basic information about the new platform, visit the Aero FAQ article or the Aero Overview article.

 

As of this release, Aero is comprised of three parts - Recruiter Module, Talent Module, and Job Board. Each of these parts are comprised of sections summarized in the table below. 

 

 

Module Description
Recruiter Module

The Recruiter Module is the base of the Aero platform, featuring the controls today's staffing recruiter uses to manage contacts, talent, and orders. The Recruiter Module is organized into distinct sections:

 

Talent  - Aero's Talent section provides a convenient, comprehensive view of employees available for work. Recruiters can quickly access information about an individual such as skills, location, and current status. 

Auto-scroll to the Aero > Recruiter Module > Talent Notes

 

Order - When a customer requests that a staffing agency fill a position, the staffing agency creates an order in Aero. The order includes information about the position: desired qualifications, position description, salary range, hiring company contact information, etc. Aero does not yet have the ability to create or manager temp orders or positions, however, an Aero job board is able to post temp positions created and managed from the Avionté core application.

Posting - Once an order has been created, a user with Job board publishing permission is able to view the order in the Posting section . A job posting can be created to fulfill the order's requirements. The Posting section displays a list of orders, filters to refine the list of orders, the ability to create multiple job posts, and the ability to see how many live posts already exist for an order.

Auto-scroll to the Aero > Recruiter Module > Posting Notes

 

Admin - The Admin section is used to configure multiple features in Aero. Through Admin, a recruiter can configure permissions, Talent Module settings, and job boards.

Once a job seeker clicks "Apply Now" on an Aero job board, the applicant is able to manage aspects of their unique profile including simple identification information and associated documents such as resumes. Talent Module refers to the section in which an applicant manages their unique profile information. Talent Module settings are configured in the Recruiter Module's Admin section .

Release Details

The Release Details section, linked from the above Release Overview section, provides an in-depth look at all of the features made available in this release. Each set of details includes primary information about the released feature and provides links to the associated help article. 

 

Aero

The 16.2 release of Aero provides a set of tools needed to effectively manage the front-end of a staffing office. These tools allow a recruiter to post a job, a job seeker to apply, a staffing manager to assign a candidate to an order, and all of the other functionality needed to successfully deliver talent to your customer.

 

Users may interact with the same part of an application from a different perspective and, just as some parts of the staffing industry are cross-functional, so are the tools in Aero. A job board, for instance, can be created by a staffing manager, then posted to by a recruiter, then applied to by an applicant. To deliver Aero in an organized manner, we've standardized our cross-functional platform into three modules- the Recruiter Module, the Talent Module, and the Job Board Module

 

Aero Users

Super users are created as usual during setup in implementation, or via support after implementation. A super user in the core application has some automatic administrative control in Aero including access to the Admin section and the ability to immediately post jobs. However, to use the Aero platform as a conventional user, a Super User must also be added as a web user in core app > Admin Tools > Employer > User tab > Web Login.

 

To give a user web access that includes access to the Aero platform, in the core application, navigate to Admin Tools > Employer > User tab > Add/Edit button > Select User > Web Login button.

 

 

  1. Enter a password into the Password field 
    • at least eight characters
    • at least one punctuation mark
    • at least one capital letter
    • at least one number
    • passwords with 16 or more characters may be any combination

  2. In the Web Role field, ensure the value includes OutlookAddInUser.

  3. Click Finish

 

 Visit the Admin Tools - User Tab - Web Login User article for details about adding a web user. 

 

 

Recruiter Module

The Recruiter Module is the base of the Aero platform, featuring the controls today's staffing recruiter uses to manage contacts, talent, and orders. The Recruiter module is organized into distinct sections - Talent, Order, Company, Contact, Posting, and Admin.

 

Talent
Aero's Talent section provides a convenient, comprehensive view of employees available for work. Recruiters can quickly access information about an individual such as skills, location, and current status.

Job Board Module

The Job Board Module features tools used to create a job board, brand the job board, then post openings to the job board. 

 

A job board is created in the Admin - Job boards section. From here, a job board is named, branded, and has a unique URL assigned to it. Up to five job boards can be supported at one time - each with their own identity and branding. 

 

 

To brand a job board, an administrator can install an image in the Admin Job boards > Properties tab and the image will appear as the logo in the upper-left of the job board. The color of the board can also be stylized from the Admin > Job boards > Color selection tab. 

 

 

To apply for a job posting, an applicant clicks Apply now from a job board.

 

 

Creation of an account with login credentials is not required to apply for a job, however, a candidate must provide contact information including first name, last name, and an email address. When providing contact information, the candidate does have the option to be "remembered" (cookies) by the browser for a later return. A resume is not required to apply for a position.

Pre 16.2 16.2

 

Associated Resume Parse Changes

 

  • The Employee > Professional Summary in versions 16.2 and newer of the Core application is now auto-populated with resume information following a resume parse.

  • Advanced Search in all versions is currently limited to only keywords parsed from the resume. 

 

 

Parser Resume Types

An applicant may upload a resume (optional). Applicants can browse for the file, or simply drag and drop it into the resume area. Applicants can also copy and paste resume text into the resume area. 

 

Most word processor formats are recognized by the Avionté resume parser.

 

If a resume is unable to parse into the system, it is most likely due to exceeding the file size restriction (30MB) or the resume contains unrecognized image formats. 

Accepted file types (up to 30MB)

.doc - a Microsoft Word format including:
      • Word for DOS
      • Word for Windows 1 and 2; Word 3 and 4 for Mac OS
      • Word 5 and Word 95 for Windows; Word 6 for Mac OS
      • Word 97 and later for Windows; Word 98 and later for Mac OS

.docx - a Microsoft Word format available in:

      • Word 2007 and later for Windows
      • Word 2008 and later for OS X
      • Miscellaneous open source word processing programs

.pdf - Adobe Portable Document Format.

Note: The resume parser does not work on image-based files—for example, the parser cannot parse a PDF produced by scanning a paper resume. Text-based files, including PDFs produced by exporting to PDF, are accepted and parsed. There is no check for which type of PDF an applicant has uploaded: both are accepted, but only text-based PDFs are successfully parsed. 

.txt - a standard document that contains unformatted text available in:

      • MS-DOS and Windows
      • Notepad
      • Unix
      • Mac OS X

Vertex Update

4.2.2

Vertex releases periodic updates that contain any additions, discontinuations, adjustments, and/or fixes for issues related to tax processing and geocode options discovered by Vertex.

 

Avionté has applied the latest Vertex update to the 17.1.3 version of the Avionté Suite and made the latest Vertex update available for self-hosted customers. 

 

The latest update includes the following:

 

  1. Work tax credit not being deducted from Ohio resident city tax calculation
    This issue occurs only when Ohio residents work in a Kentucky location where
    either of the following conditions exist for a county tax:
    • The county tax has a maximum limit.
    • The county tax is eliminated when a city tax exists.
      Previously, in some instances, PTQ was not correctly deducting the work tax
      credit during the calculation of the resident tax for cities in Ohio.

      This issue was addressed, effective with this release.

      The calculation was modified to calculate the correct credit amount.


  2. Ohio city subject wages
    This issue affects only employees who live and work in the same city in Ohio, and
    who are exempt from the city tax.
    If an employee lives and works in the same Ohio city and is tax exempt, PTQ was
    returning the subject gross wages on the resident tax handle in error.

    This issue was fixed.


  3. Concurrent Aggregation and the Annualized Concurrent Aggregation methods for Canada
    Before this release, there were some calculation issues when an override tax or
    override rate was passed, or when an additional supplement tax or rate was
    passed. These issues occurred in Canadian Federal and Quebec Provincial tax
    calculations.

    The following calculation methods were affected:
    • Concurrent Aggregation
    • Annualized Concurrent Aggregation (Federal only)

      These issues were fixed.




  4. Additional MED EE Tax for highly compensated employees with wages from a predecessor employer
    The Medicare and Railroad Retirement Tier 1 (Medicare portion) tax rate is
    currently 1.45% each for the employee and employer. In addition, you must
    withhold 0.9% Additional Medicare Tax from wages that you pay to an employee
    in excess of $200,000 in a calendar year. Employers are required to begin
    withholding Additional Medicare Tax in the pay period in which they pay wages
    in excess of $200,000 to an employee and continue to withhold it each pay
    period until the end of the calendar year. Additional Medicare Tax is imposed
    only on the employee. There is no employer share of Additional Medicare Tax.
    When corporate acquisitions meet certain requirements, wages paid by the
    predecessor employer are to be treated as if they were paid by the successor
    employer for purposes of determining if the employee has reached the
    Additional Medicare Tax or Railroad Retirement Tier 1 Tax (Medicare portion)
    withholding threshold.

    Vertex Payroll Tax Q Series Enhanced Integration
    Summary of Program Modifications
    March 2017 3
    What these changes mean:
    For PTQ to use year-to-date wages to accumulate the wages for both employers,
    you must pass the predecessor employer wages and taxes in the following fields:
    • eVprtGrsIDPriorState - Prior State Gross
    • eVprtGrsIDPriorStateSup - Prior State Supplemental Gross
    • eVprtTaxAmtIDPriorState - Prior State Tax Amount
    • eVprtTaxAmtIDPriorStateSup - Prior State Supplemental Tax Amount PTQ will add the information in these fields for predecessor employer wages to
      year-to-date and


  5. Issue with VI work state SUI calculation
    Currently, PTQ calculates the territorial income tax for the Virgin Islands (VI). The
    Virgin Islands calculation does not handle multi-work situations. If the work and
    resident locations are not in the same territory, the calculation status is set to
    Invalid Employee handle, and no taxes are returned.
    Beginning with this release, VI State Unemployment (SUI) calculates when the
    work GeoCode is 78-000-0000 (VI) even if the resident GeoCode is not the same.

    This calculation change is for VI SUI ER only.


  6. Canada Pension Plan (CPP) calculation error for employee who transfers from Quebec to another
    province
    The self-adjust and self-adjust at maximum calculation methods are complicated
    if a portion of the employee's year-to-date earnings are earned in Quebec, due to
    the difference in the CPP and QPP contribution rates and annual contribution
    limits.

    To determine if the employee and employer have satisfied the annual maximum
    contribution for the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) when the employee transfers
    from Quebec to another province, enhancements were made to the
    contributions calculations that use the self-adjust and self-adjust at maximum
    calculation methods.


  7. Maine withholding tax
    Beginning in 2017, the Maine Department of Revenue updated the formula for
    calculating Maine withholding tax.

    In release 4.2.2, Vertex modified the program code and updated the calculation
    to account for these changes. Refer to the Vertex Payroll Tax Q Series Calculation
    Guide for more information about the changes in calculations.
