Release 2.22.02

Change Folder - When accessing the Inbox via the Desk Top there is a new button ‘Change Folder’.

When pressed this will allow the user to select an inbox sub folder to view in the inbox. However this folder will be the default for the next time the user goes to the Inbox.

Note: This is NOT available for Users set up for new Exchange Web Services.

Search - When accessing the Inbox via the Desk Top there is a new button ‘Search’. Users can type into the box and then hit the search button to return emails related to the search. Please note this does not search on all folders, only the specified folder and the search is not live searching when you enter each letter, it only starts when the button is pressed.

Fetch Limit & Fetched - Fetch Limit and Fetched have been added to the Inbox. This allows users to vary the number of emails that will be ‘fetched’ from the selected folder (inbox or other selected folder). The Fetched then displays how many emails are being displayed. In the below example the number of emails in the selected folder is lower than the fetch limit, hence the difference in the numbers.

Please note that the maximum you can set the fetch limit to is 200 and it is worth noting that the higher this number is the more time it will take for the emails to load as each one is checked to match IQX records.

Saving Attachments - Once an email has been expanded, the instructional text on how to save attachments have been highlighted in red text to make it more visible.

Managers can now create ‘Teams’ within IQX and manage Candidates/Temps and Placements on the Temp Desk filtered by a specific ‘Team’ where they can view the specified records and run reports on just the Team.

This feature requires System Administrator setup.

When adding holiday or unavailability to the Availability view on a Person Record when they are currently working in a contract placement, it will now auto update the Placements view, the Availability view and the Timesheets view on the Temp Desk to show the setup reason i.e. HOL, ABST.

The Unavailability reasons will also show on the timesheet in place of the hours, if Show Hours is ticked.

This feature requires System Administrator setup.

A new User role has been added that will allow users that have this role assigned to select a custom department from the file menu to be used where departments have custom columns on Selectors.

Please note that only departments that have custom questions will show in the list and the list is also restricted to obey the users divisions allowed access. This is available on the Person, Company and Placement selectors. Once a department has been selected from the list on the file menu when you open the Person selector the caption states which department it is and you will see any Custom Columns that are specific to that Department based on the selector you are viewing.

This feature requires System Administrator setup.

By setting up a Vacancy departmental stored search with the description starting ‘Global Person default…’, e.g. ‘Global Person Default Industrial’ the system will now pull this through into the Requirements tab on the Person Record that can be used to search for vacancies. Set up the search without filling in the criteria so that can be set per person. Only set up one per department.

This feature requires System Adminstrator setup

Normally document packs are sent from a vacancy shortlist, as a result the underlying code knows about the Vacancy ID etc.

If the document pack is generated from a person record, the checklist report could still need details from the vacancy so it will now prompt the user to select the relevant Our Ref from the dropdown. Cancel will allow this step to be skipped.

This means the checklist report can still pull the required details from the vacancy even if it is generated from the person record.

Editable fields can now be added into the Report Builder, allowing the ability to free type into the cells when exported to PDF format. Can be saved as Read Only to ensure no further editing can take place.

For assistance with this feature please contact IQX Support.

There have been a number of Enhancements to Notifications:

1. Attach Checklist Reports and Documents and set a contact event type directly instead of through functions.

2. Attach a photo thumbnail to body of notification and specify width and height.

3. Attach a list of colleagues booked for the same day, and details of a nominated ‘leader’.

4. Create Custom Word Merge fields for shifts.

5. Allow body of Notification to be saved as a pdf in Documents.

These features require System Administrator setup in the Templates.

With linked companies when sending a notification and attaching a document you can now select from all linked company documents or only the company documents you are on.

By setting general setting 3330 - Allow docs to be attached from Company Group to 'N' you can switch off being able to see all linked company documents.

In collections you now have drop down filters, limited to the users connected to the chats.

The below picture shows the filter that you would use to filter by either the owner of the collection or someone that is listed as a user within the Collection.

The below picture shows the filter that allows you to filter by the people that have contributed to the chat.

New columns show how many users are in the chat and the number of documents attached to the chat.

Users with access to Internal Chat / Collections are now able to double click on the line to open it rather than having to click on the Expand button.

Styling and sizing improvements have also been made particularly within the questionnaire section.

You can now make a selection of records to add Favourites via the new yellow star button rather than dragging one record at a time. This can now be done from the Person, Company and Company Contacts selectors. The new star button asks you to specify the folder in Favourites.

When this is pressed you get to choose which folder within Favourites these go to.

On the Person Selector the view has been reorganised due to new buttons: the Favourites, Notify, Bulk Email, Send Docs, Self Doc Pack have been moved onto a second line to enhance visibility.

On Availability view of a person, click on Enter Availability/Unavailability, on either form it will be possible to select “Create Diary Reminder” and set the date, once the date comes it will generate a notification for the user.

On the history view on a person record when you add an employment from an existing company we have added a column that shows the company state. This will help to ensure that the correct company is added to a record.

If available, 2-way SMS has been improved. Spacing has been harmonised. A new button has been added to the Incoming SMS area of the Desk Top to quickly and easily view the incoming SMS.

A new general setting has been added that allows you to set a Default state for new companies other than 'P' Prospect.

This feature requires System Administrator setup.

When ‘Enforce Margin Check’ is activated on a desk , the vacancy and placement, ‘Add Rate’ and ‘Delete rate’ buttons are greyed out, preventing incorrect rates being added or deleted.

Placement Extensions now call the placement pre validation function to ensure all is in order before allowing the extension.

On Person Availability view, Temp Desk Temps and Availability views it now reflects the Candidates working pattern i.e. if they are working Mon, Wed, Fri this will show as ‘W' on their Availability leaving Tue, Thur, Sat, Sun showing ‘A’ for available (providing availability has been entered) Historically every day would show as 'W’ regardless of the candidates working pattern.

If a Timesheet has been completed using the signing method the ‘Entered’ Field on the completed timesheet now shows who signed the timesheet rather than ‘WEB User Identified’.

Historically you could only edit the account name after the first invoice had been created. With this enhancement it is now possible to edit without the need to create an invoice. This is for Xero Accounts users where Accounts Codes are not used, only Account Names.

When attaching Global documents in emails the documents that show now obey the Division access set at the User level. If a Global Document is set for a specific Division or Divisions, it will not show on the list if the User does not have access to that Division.

If a report is run against a person, e.g. an ID badge, it is useful to save this as a PDF to be reused rather than rerun the report.

If enabled by your agency you can save a report as a PDF to the Documents view and also Compliance Documents view on a Person record if you have Compliance rights. This is in addition to being able to Print and Save to File. You can also add to the Documents view on Company, Placement, Progress and Vacancy. Please note this can only be done if the report is generated from an individual record, it will not work on the selector screens.

For reports that have had this feature added there is a new button that will show in the report that allows the saving of the report as a PDF or Save to File.

This feature requires System Administrator Setup.

Online reference report can now be saved to documents, compliance and file. 2 Buttons now at top of report:

Blue Arrow = Export - Save to file

Red Arrow = Save to Documents or Compliance Documents

When you are editing a report in a reports selector that has a file type of xml - when you click on Browse the default file type now matches the original file type. Previously it would always default to showing files of the type rtm.

A new user layout setting has been added that will allow users that have the role ‘Can administer IQXWeb users’ to Maintain the iqxWEB Admin User without having Full Maintenance Rights. Once the new layout setting has been added users will see an option in the Select menu for ‘iqx Web Maintain Admin User’.

This feature requires System Administrator setup.
