Budgets Overview now displays descriptions for newly created Resources; personalizations for Budgets Overview may have been reset to the default

posted Oct 16, 2018, 3:13 PM by Peyri Herrera

An issue with Budgets Overview not displaying descriptions for newly created Resources has been resolved and migrated to production this past weekend (October 14).

Please be aware that the resolution altered the results grid on the Budget Overview page, and most likely reset personalizations that had been created by users.

Retiree Incentive Guide now available

posted Oct 12, 2018, 7:43 AM by Barbara Thiss

The Retiree Incentive Guide v1.0.pdf (51 pp.) was published today, October 12, 2018. This guide covers the administrative process for organizations that offer a retiree incentive to their retired employees. To set up an individual employee for Retiree Incentives, the process requires action by multiple disciplines. In order to take an employee through the entire process, you and/or your colleagues will need to be able to add rows to Job Data, DBT, Position, Enroll in Benefits, Additional Pay and General Deduction screens. Please see pp.2-3 of the guide for a cheat sheet that lists Parts A-O and the navigations for each task.

This outline is just one example of how the workflow may be processed within your organization.

Self-Service Paychecks: Duplicated boxes in the self-service views, no impact on pay total.

posted Oct 9, 2018, 12:37 PM by Barbara Thiss

Currently, when a paycheck is reviewed using either Review Self-Service Paycheck or the self-service portal, the boxes for Before/After-Tax Deductions and Employer-Paid Benefits Are duplicated. 

This does not impact any of the totals for the checks.

We are anticipating that this condition will be corrected for production HCM by Monday, October 15.
