HCM UPDATES

Your HR, Payroll, Benefits Enrollment & Time Just Got a Facelift!

As part of our rebrand, the new look and feel introduced with Employee Self-Service is being incorporated throughout the isolved People Cloud platform. We are excited to share the first set of updates that have been made to HR, Payroll, and Time. The new color scheme and navigation elements provide a more engaging and user-friendly interface to make it easier for you and your employees to complete necessary tasks.

Here are just a few of the changes you can expect:

  • The main menu items in the left-side navigation bar now have a black background with white lettering
    • When you select a main menu item, the background will change to light blue
    • When you select an item underneath the main menu item, a light blue border will appear
    • Selected items in the main window will be identified by a gold outline
  • Main action bars also have a black background and white lettering
    • When there are options underneath a main action bar, the option you are on will have a light blue background

While on the Employee List screen you will also now have the ability to filter or drill into each header.

HR/Benefits Updates

System Pending Workflow Dashboard – NEW!

The System Pending Workflow Dashboard enables you to monitor workflow where service users are designated as assigned users.

  • My Transactions – lists the workflow transactions available for approval/rejection
  • Workflow Routes – lists the workflow routes and if you select the Workflow Name, the system will automatically navigate to Client Management > Workflow Setup > Workflow Routes.

New Employee Analytics Dashboards

We are rolling out two new Dashboards under Employee Analytics – one for Emergency Contacts and one for Birthdays.

  • Birthday Dashboard – you now can view, filter, and sort all employee birthdays from one place! You can filter by birthdays coming up in the next week or by specific month and you can use the Column Chooser feature to filter, sort and select further data to pull into your report. Once you have the data you want, you can export it to Excel.
  • Emergency Contacts Dashboard – like the Birthday Dashboard, you now can view a listing of your employee’s Emergency Contacts quickly and easily through the Emergency Contacts Dashboard. You can use the Column Chooser to select the data you want to include and export your final report to Excel with this Dashboard as well.

TIME UPDATES

The following new features are included with this release:

  • Notes Section on Leave Accruals – you now have the option to enter a note when updating accrual balances 
  • New Balance Update Indicator on Accrual Balance History – when a balance update has occurred, an informational icon now shows next to the starting balance on the Employee Management > Employee Benefits > Accrual Balance History page. When you hover over the icon, the text “Balance Update” displays.
  • Scheduling Update to Unavailability Permissions – in Calendar Rules, you can now enable or disable the “unavailability” for Employee Self-Service Users
  • Scheduler Link Added to Time Card – we added a “View Scheduler” button on the Time Card that, when pressed, will navigate the user (with permissions) to the scheduler with the originating employee on the Time Card filtered to the same week view as the Time Card.

PAYROLL UPDATES

Users who are restricted from seeing salary can now have access to the Jobs and Jobs Update screens as the salary grade fields will be hidden for those users

In response to state regulations regarding paycheck display, the following updates were made to employee pay stubs.

  • The SSN will be removed from all check formats
  • The Company ID field will always display the company code, not the client code
  • The employee’s pay type will show on each stub
