Web:

Improved Leave pay details for Accrued absence accounts (UK, DE & DK only)

It's now possible to see details about how the Leave pay value is calculated for each employee. This information can be found in the Account details section on each employee's Accrued absence account under:

  • Schedule > Absence accounts > and click on the employee's account
    and

  • People > Employees > click on Edit employee > Absence > click on the employee's account

Permission to ignore Working time rules or not.

We have added a new security action that allows you to choose if your managers should be allowed to ignore Working time rules or not.
The security action to ignore Working time rules is connected to your Security groups. It's by default turned on for all Security groups that are currently allowed to manage the Schedule, so there are no changes made to the current permissions.

With this new security action in place, it's possible to remove the right to ignore Working time rules from specific Security groups.
Example: You can choose to remove this security action for Schedule admins meaning they can no longer ignore Working time rules in the schedule, but keep it for Admins so they can still choose to ignore the Working time rules.

When removing this security action from a Security group (that's already allowed to manage the Schedule), they will not be able to select Ignore on a violation of a Working time rules, and can only select Edit shift or Cancel (shown in the picture below).

Please reach out to our Support team (chat icon, in the bottom right corner) if you need to make changes to the Security actions connected to your Security groups.
