We released the following features and bug fixes in Wagepoint on May 29, 2019.
- Profile switcher – users can switch to other active employee or contractor records without going back to the list of active employees/contractors.
- Adding earnings for multiple assignments – removed the restriction that prevented users from entering earnings in the payroll process for employees that have more than one assignment.
- Off-cycle vs regular payroll – updated the standard payroll reports to indicate which payrolls were processed as off-cycle runs.
- Paygroups displayed in alphabetical order – we updated the first step of the payroll process i.e. paygroup selection so that the groups are organized alphabetically.
- Income tab – added a column in the list view to display the income type as well as the description.
- SIN validation – added validation to prevent users from entering invalid SIN during employee/contractor setup. Additionally, employees can no longer edit their SIN in the employee portal.
- Phone number validation – added 10-character limit validation to prevent users from entering an invalid phone number during company setup.
- Auto-approve alert – added an alert to indicate if a paygroup is set up for auto-approval.
- Posting journal report – accrued vacation payable line item updated to use the correct GL account number, if applicable. We also fixed the report so that non-payable income codes are reflected in both the debit and credit columns.
- My employee account – fixed a bug that prevented the employee account selection from being saved.
- Active paystub memo – only paygroups with an active memo will have an edit icon displayed against it
We released the following features and bug fixes in Wagepoint on May 8, 2019.
- Remittance report – the gross taxable earnings include employer contributions toward benefits as per provincial rules.
- Paystub memos – in addition to company-wide notifications, you can add individual messages to paystubs for specific employees.
- Date and timestamp validation – in keeping with our processing timelines, we require customers to process payroll three (3) business days prior to the desired paydate by 12 pm EST. This timing cut-off is enforced by a timestamp validation. Additionally, customers can no longer select a paydate that is more than 30 days in the future.
- Posting journal report – if you make any changes to an employee or contractor record with regards to their departments, incomes or deductions after the cycle end date but before the payroll is approved, the posting journal report will reflect those changes upon finalization so that debits and credits match.
- Year to date report – select This year to date and pick the year-end form to verify that all earnings, taxes and deductions are being reported to the correct box on the form for the current year.
