- New page to validate position hierarchy data
Human resources (HR) and administrators can now validate the managerial hierarchy for any circular references that might have inadvertently been imported. You can access this new page from Organizational administration > Links > Positions > Position hierarchy validation.
- Specify reason codes on leave types
Organizations might require additional information about time-off requests. You can now specify reason codes for leave types and let employees select a reason code on their time-off requests.
- Require reason codes for specific leave types on time-off requests
Organizations might require reason codes for specific leave types when employees submit time-off requests. This requirement might exist because of company policy or regulatory requirements.
You can now specify which leave types require a reason code, and you can require that employees provide a reason code for the leave type on their time-off requests.
- Provide a leave and absence transaction list for HR
The ability to track employee time off and understand how time off is calculated not only helps HR answer employee questions, but also helps ensure accurate time-off awards for employees.
HR now has a new view into the transactions (grants, accruals, adjustments, and requests), so that HR staff can view the reasons behind balances.
