Paychex to maintain their Worker pay rates and Caresmartz would provide hours data required for Payroll calculations

In CareSmartz360, there is now a feature that allows sending the hours data alone, without the pay amount, for the purpose of calculating payroll in Paychex. In order to ensure that the payroll is successfully submitted in Paychex, the agency needs to ensure that the worker pay rate is configured before creating the pay period in Paychex.

Vendor Workflow for QBO

As an agency user we are now able to add the vendors in QBO and also, we have the provision to send the payroll data for the vendors in QBO. On the Caregiver Matching screen there is a provision to select whether the user wants to send the caregiver as an employee or as a vendor in QBO. Post making the selection of the employee type, the user needs to check the add to QuickBooks checkbox to proceed. On selecting the add to QuickBooks option, the drop down would be disabled. On click of the “Save” button the user would be able to send the Caregivers/Vendors based on the selection into the QBO. Depending on how the user is set up in QBO, the payroll would be submitted accordingly.

Improved Open Task filters on the Dashboard.

Previously, Agency users had the capability to navigate through tasks based on specific dates to view Open Tasks. However, there was no option to see a comprehensive list of ‘All Open Tasks’. The Open task ‘View All’ section has now been updated with new filters, replacing the calendar with standard options such as Today, In the next 7 days, In the next 30 days, Custom Date Range, Show All Overdue, and Show All. The updates made to the filters are confined to the ‘View All’ section of Open Tasks. There is no change in the main widget on the Dashboard.

These filter enhancements provide users with a more effortless way to search for relevant tasks while still retaining the flexibility to select a custom date range if needed. Notably, the new filters allow users to instantly access either All Overdue Tasks or All Tasks with just a simple click.

Additionally, the Open task card now includes the Due Date, enabling users to get a quick overview of all tasks at a glance. This improvement further streamlines the task management process.

Introducing Estimated Miles and Travel Time for efficient Scheduling on the Schedule window

This new feature will enhances the scheduling and coordination capabilities for agency users. With this update, you can now view the estimated Miles and Time required for a caregiver to reach a selected client’s location directly within the schedule window & find caregiver screen.

On the Schedule window, User will see a clickable text next to the caregiver dropdown labelled “Show Time/Miles” By clicking on this text, user can view the estimated distance and time it will take for the selected caregiver to reach the chosen client’s location. The “Show Time/Miles “option will be visible in the schedule window for all shifts, including past, current, and future shifts, when the schedule status is set as ‘Scheduled’.

  • If it’s the first shift of the calendar day for the selected caregiver, the schedule window will display the recommended distance and time calculated by the Google API between the caregiver’s base location and the selected client location.
  • When the caregiver is scheduled for consecutive shifts for the same client, the schedule window will display the recommended distance and time calculated by the Google API between the caregiver’s base location and the selected client location.
  • If it’s not the first shift of the calendar day for the selected caregiver, the schedule window will show the recommended distance and time calculated by the Google API between the client’s location where the caregiver last performed a shift or is yet to perform a shift, and the selected client location.
  • When determining the estimated distance and time for consecutive shifts within the same calendar day, the system will utilize the “Schedule End Time” instead of the “Actual End Time”. This ensures accurate distance and time calculations, as it accounts for shifts that cross over into the next day.
  • For example, if a caregiver has a shift from 8:30 PM to 11:30 PM on 12th June and clocks out at 12:20 AM on 13th June, the information of the estimated Miles and Time for the next shift scheduled from 5 AM to 7 AM on 13th June will show the recommended distance and time calculated by the Google API between the caregiver’s base location and the selected client location.
  • The estimated distance and time details will be dynamically updated in real-time whenever there are changes to the selected caregiver, start time, end time, start date, or end date.
