  2. Warning for Re-Adding an Existing Employee

    It would be great to have a warning pop-up to state then when going to save a new employee into the system that "you already have this SSN in the system as employee #_____, do you wish to continue to save?" If Yes, it saves, if No, it cancels out.

    We just had a situation where we have an entered an employee 3 different times into the program (he was/is seasonal) (2 terminated and 1 now active). When running his earnings report we picked the wrong employee ID when we first looked him up by last name as it went…

  4. Additional Parameters when entering time and attendance

    Please consider adding time period restraints to certain codes in the attendance and payroll modules. For example, an employee is assigned to a six month probationary period, he requests 8 hours of annual leave. The organization's personnel policy stipulates that probationary employees are not afforded the opportunity to take vacation days during that period. It would be helpful, if when entering time a red flag appear stating the employee is not eligible for annual leave and also not allow the entry to continue without a manager override. This enhancement could also be applied to FMLA and Shared Leave issues. Please…

  5. Custom Reporting - Multiple Ranges for Dept IDs

    Our DPW Department encompasses a multitude of Department IDs. We would like to generate ONE report and save it to be refreshed with updated data.
    For example: We currently run a report for dept 5110, export that to Excel; run another report for 8160 export to excel, etc. Then copy/paste each department to the original report so that we have a conglomerate of departments that encompass DPW.
    Conversely, we could just put in a range capturing all of DPWs departments and then delete data that we don't need out of Excel, but again, it flies in the face of having…

  6. More fields are needed for various types of leave.

    Only 4 types of leave are allowed to be selected. Some types of leave are "special" & for us, need to be separate from the limited selection.

  7. Direct Deposit Email Distribution

    To have the Direct Deposit email distributed on a certain date rather than the Direct Deposit email being sent when the payroll is processed. Example: When payroll for 1/31/2018 is processed on 1/19/2018 the Direct Deposit Emails are sent on 1/19/2018. If there could be a way to have the Direct Deposit emails delayed to a date certain such as 1/31/2018 when payroll is paid.

  9. Full Cycle Applicant Tracking System

    Coming from 2 previous government agencies I have been involved with implementing applicant tracking systems for the agencies. I was disappointed to find out that Edmunds does not offer a full cycle applicant tracking system. I would like to see a system added that we can enter requisitions (job postings) and create applications where applicants can apply on line and the information is imported directly into Edmunds. Once an applicant hits submit the application should be available to view in PDF form in Edmunds. The requisition #'s is used to track different open positons and applications received. The system should…

  10. Post Dating Deductions/Earnings to begin on a given date

    It would be very helpful to be able to enter a deduction/earning into payroll maintenance with an effective date in the future.

    When a new employee is enrolled, it is much easier to enter all deductions/earnings with the appropriate effective date than to depend on memory to back and enter the deduction/earning later.

    It would also save time when deduction amounts change as of a given date.

  12. instead of showing the full social security number it would be nice to have the option to only show the last 4 digits

    When printing reports to follow along with payroll deductions most places want a social to go with it. I do not give it. I know the program allows for the full number to print out...which is nice for in house purposes...but for reports that I have to send out......it would be nice to have the option to select only the last 4 digits of the employees ss#

  13. Accruals Earned Each Payroll

    I need a detail report that will generate the amount of vacation accruals earned/ each employee/ EACH PAY PERIOD during the Fiscal Year for the auditors.

    Our policy has a MAXIMUM VACATION ACCRUAL THRESHOLD, depending on years of service (YOS).

    When an employee meets that threshold, accrual earnings will no longer generate until the employee takes vacation leave.

    Often a partial vacation accrual generates to bring that employee to their maximum vacation accrual.

    Some employees do not use their vacation in a timely manner, therefore the custom report listing that gives everyone's accrual rates is NOT helpful to DETECT the…

    Would suggest if a change is being made to an employee whose status is "Terminated", that the system should generate an ALERT that we are changing info on an inactive employee.

    I would like to be able to set the date my Email Direct Deposit Notifications are sent out. As of now, they are sent out when I print live checks and paper notifications. I would like the option to set the date to the actual pay day or the night before.

  17. Include all direct deposit changes to appear in Change Transaction Inquiry report

    The Change Transaction Inquiry report is a valuable tool; however, not all additions and changes are being reflected.

    Must include all direct deposit adds/edits in the Change Transaction Inquiry report in the Personnel module. These transactions do NOT appear in the report. For example, a direct deposit account was added on 5/10/16 for an employee included in the attachment and there is nothing that shows this was done in the change transaction inquiry report.

  19. Social Security Limit alert

    Have the system issue an alert when we are entering a check adjustment routine/third-party sick pay entry and the employee will be overstated for the social security limit for the year. It would be helpful to know this at the time of entry instead of at year end when trying to print the W-2's
