Broadcast enables a broker to communicate with their clients more effectively, by expanding the note wall concept across multiple companies.

Where: From company home page, add a note, and then see new option to send email
Details: Broker is now able to send HR an email when they post a company note by checking the box ‘Send email to recipients’. Email will be generated to all active HR users of the company containing the contents of the note, and identifying if a document is attached to the note in which the user would need to log in to see. HR can opt-out of receiving note emails, in which the note details will still be available on the HR users wall. Opt-out is located on HR user list, under the permissions sub-tab.

Topic: HR User Updates
Where: Company setup, and then select HR users
Details: Updated how we save HR users when they are linked to an employee. The primary difference between non-employee HR users is that they are assigned a 4 digit PIN instead of using the last 4 digits of their SSN. We now save the last 4 digits of the employee’s SSN as the PIN when the HR user is identified as an employee, to minimize this confusion.
Topic: Salary History
Where: View salary history from employee profile, compensation, and then select change salary
Details: Importing salary is now setting a salary history record in addition to setting the employee salary. This will now allow users to see the salary history whether the employee salary was manually updated or imported. If the employee salary effective date is in the future, only the salary history is created, and the nightly job will update the employee salary on the salary effective date.
