Where: From employee management page, unlock open or new hire enrollment link
Details: The "Unlock Open or New Hire enrollment" option will allow an Administrator to open up Open Enrollment prior to employee enrollment window starting. This was designed to be used for testing open enrollment from an employee perspective before giving all employees access to OE. It can also be used if the OE dates have passed, but you have NOT closed out OE yet.
You will also be able to unlock the New Hire window for an employee who may have missed their initial enrollment timeframe and for whom you would like to make an exception.
If you want to close the window up before the date you entered, simply come back into the tool and remove the date then select SAVE.
