EasyConnect Update – December 18, 2018

Creating absences

Free text GL codes – Ask us to turn on the option to enter free text GL Codes (in addition to picking from drop downs) if you want Administrators to have this option. (Thanks Niagara)

Shorter message for answering machines – When EasyConnect detects an answering machine it shortens its message so the system makes more calls.

Multi-day absences and holidays – Multi-day absences are properly excluding holidays that fall between the start and end date. (Thanks Peel)

Please notify your employees and replacements of verbiage change

EIN will be changed to Identification # starting Jan 1, 2019 – In an effort to improve the script when accepting or creating absences over the phone, users will be asked to enter their Identification # rather than their EIN. The actual # they enter remains the same. This is merely a verbiage change. (Thanks Ottawa Catholic & Peel)
