Welcome to this week's release notes June 12 - 18 2023. Over the last week we have released an update to our Swag, app and some exciting payroll integrations.
Ability to archive deprecated feature flags in SAP
Release Schedule: 12th June 2023
Feature flags can now be archived via the SAP UI, reducing confusion around which flags are in use or not and removing unused flags from the UI. New flags cannot be created with the same name as an archived flag. Teams should also ensure that unused flags are removed from the codebase first before removing from SAP.
Preferred pronouns in Employee Profile
Release schedule: June 15th 2023
Users can now add their preferred pronouns in their Employee Profile via the Personal Details tab. The following options are available and not a mandatory field:
Alternative pronouns can be classified as Other.
Real time InstaPay for all
Release schedule: 13 June 2023
InstaPay real time is now public. All users will now have access to real time InstaPay. Instead of waiting 1-2 business days to receive funds, they will arrive within a few seconds to their nominated accounts
New InstaPay waiting period
Release Date: 13th June 2023
We are making sure that an organisation has been on a paid plan with EH for 2 months before InstaPay is enabled. This provides an additional layer of checks for an org before accessing money via InstaPay. This new enhancement is for any new organisation onboarded from 13/06/2023 or any org that is on a free plan and upgrades to a paid plan from this date. This wait period can be framed as a way for an organisation to get familiar with EH, Swag and the product offering before the feature is then available to access
Delete candidate profiles on SAP
Release Schedule: 9th June 2023
We have added a “Delete applicant” button under the ATS detail section on the user's SAP page. Clicking the button will first prompt an alert confirmation before soft-deleting the user’s Swag candidate profile only (no employee data if they had any).
