Following are the changes in this release:
1. While updating the Master Schedule plan only the modified fields will be affected in the child plan.
2. If Master and Child schedules have different values of a field(s), then visual indicators have been added in the edit pop-up.
3. Moving forward, while editing/creating a Master Schedule/Child Plan, you can select a “Service Type” and “Bill Type”. Based on the Date range, the system will automatically identify if there is a valid Auth linked with the selected “Bill Type” & “Service Type.” The system will then apply the authorization to the schedules being released from the Release Visit Plan automatically.
1. When “Overnight Shift Split” is turned ON, it is applicable for all existing clients i.e. for active as well as inactive clients.
2. If the configuration of any client is different than the agency Overnight Shift Split Setting on the Settings page, the Overnight Shift Split will show “Partial/ Indeterminate” checkbox.
1. In the Time Tracking Views screen(s), if the date range for instance is 10/01/21-11/01/21, then all the schedules within the date range of 10/01/21 -10/01/21 and 10/01/21 -11/01/21 will be included in the result list. However, overnight schedules beginning on 09/30/21 will not part of the searched result list. This will align hours/units counts with reports in CS360.
1. On the Schedule Calendar, the hours and minutes logic is removed and the same is replaced by decimal units i.e 1 hour 15 mins will be shown as 1.25 hours.
1. On the Release Visit Plan screen – If a user is going to release some schedules which are either missing Bill or Pay Rate or Both (schedule should be Billable or Payable or Both) then a list of schedules with missing Bill rate or Pay rate will be shown in the pop-up. Also in the grid, if a Bill or Pay rate is missing then “(No rate Defined)” will be highlighted in red. User can then go back and edit or skip.
2. If the Agency has set Auto Approval in Office Settings”
1. if the schedule is “Billable and Payable” and Bill Rate or Pay rate or Both are missing, then the schedule will not be auto-approved (if designated in Office Settings); it will be in Needs Review status.
2. If a schedule is “Billable but not Payable” and the Bill Rate is missing, then the schedule will not be auto-approved; it will be in Needs Review status.
3. If a schedule is “Not-billable but Payable” and Pay Rate is missing, then the schedule will not be auto-approved; it will be in Needs Review status.
4. If a schedule is “Billable No Charge but Payable” and Pay Rate is missing, then the schedule will not be auto-approved; it will be in Needs Review status.
3. If Agency has set Time Tracking Confirmed in Office Settings
1. Then, all the screens from where schedules can be manually approved, either single or in bulk, schedules can be manually approved, for example, Time tracking view- Individual and bulk, Schedule calendar, etc, schedule window, etc. system will show the validation that agency is approving a shift which is either missing bill or pay rate. Here also, the condition of firing the validation will remain the same as defined in 5.2 above.

Earlier it was required to match all Pay codes for one Service type even if it is not used in the Payroll batch which we are trying to send to QBD. Now the system will show validation message only for those schedules where the Pay Code for a Service Type is not mapped and that Service Type exists in the Payroll which we are trying to send to QBD. Once a user receives the validation message, the user can either unselect those schedules or go back and match the used Service Type with the Pay Code to send the Payroll batch to QBD.
