  • Background Check Billing Setup
  • Legacy Portal Time Entry Email Notification Enhancements 


Item  Description
4225 Assignment DRMs are now respected during copy order processing.

Standard Occupational Code (SOC) for SUTA Filing 

The Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system is a federal statistical standard used by federal agencies to classify workers into occupational categories for the purpose of collecting, calculating, or disseminating data.


As of April 2019, all workers are classified into one of 867 detailed occupations according to their occupational definition. To facilitate classification, detailed occupations are combined to form 459 broad occupations, 98 minor groups, and 23 major groups. Detailed occupations in the SOC with similar job duties, and in some cases skills, education, and/or training, are grouped together.


ALL clients required to file in IN, LA, or AK should start the SOC data entry as soon as their upgrade is complete, but should wait to generate data and complete filing until beta is complete (due to complete on or before 4/18).


Beta testing for the feed will occur with the following clients (data entry to be completed by Bart):

  • TempStaffing of Indiana (TOI)
  • Forge (FIS)


Upon successful feed generation and submission, the feature will be enabled for all clients.


Background Check Search Options

To improve productivity in the Background Check Request window, Search Options have been added as well as the ability to export the background check order requests and errors.


Search Options

Users are now able to save background check order user search options, so they may quickly get to the information relevant to their work.

Default: When a user has not saved any specific search criteria, then upon loading the Background Check Request grid the results will be limited to those sent in the last 30 days.



To allow for easier reporting and task distribution an export feature has been added for both the Background Check Orders as well as the Errors. Users may save their preferred Export File Location with their search criteria.

Desktop Application > Start page > Actions > Background Check Request: User can run and save search criteria as well as export


The feature flag BackgroundCheckRequestBilling has been added, but should be disabled at the global level for all clients to hide upcoming content for the May release.


The BackgroundCheckRequestSearchOptions feature flag has been removed from code base.


The EmployeeBackgroundCheckRequest and BackgroundCheckPluginPackage have been updated.

Background Check Billing Options

As preparation for adding an integrated background check billing functionality, Avionte has added the option to associate background check packages to transaction types for billing purposes.


No action at this time is required by clients or internally. The full feature functionality is due to be released in June 2019.


Time Entry Mail Notifications - Portals

A widely requested enhancement was to include the rejection reason (in legacy portal time entry rejection email notifications), as well as the time sheet notes (in the time entry data provided in the email communications). This information will be available in the email notifications with the April release.


To add the rejected reason to the email notification a user must modify their reject email template to include the <RejectedReason> placeholder. This placeholder will be replaced with the actual rejection reason upon generation of the email.


No changes are required to include the time entry notes. These will be included in the related row for time entry data.
