a. Scheduling>View>Select Unidentified calls: User will see the actual time without rounding.
b. Once the user links the call to the respective schedule, the time will automatically be Rounded or Rounded-Up, per the office settings
For Example: If a Caregiver was supposed to clock in between 9:45 am- 10:15 am(Considering 15 Mins is the threshold time). He/ She Clocked in at 10:16 am. The call will be termed as unidentified.
Previously, 10:15 am was the time which was shown in ‘Unidentified section’ due to the ‘Round’ setting in Office settings.
Now, the actual Clock in time of Caregiver i.e. 10:16 am will be shown in ‘Unidentified section’ section.
Previously, Agency users saw Overlapped schedules in Calendar if the schedules are overnight. Now No overlapped schedules will be shown; one single schedule will be shown on the Starting date.
For Example: – If there is a schedule which will start at 5 pm on 23rd Oct’18 and will end at 3 am on 24th Oct’18, then the schedule will be shown on 23rd Oct’18 in the calendar.
The Admin will use the office settings to indicate whether Overtime is applicable to Client Invoices or not. The “Overtime Applicable Client Invoice” checkbox in the schedule window will reflect the default from the office settings.
At the time of creating a schedule, all tasks created on that date in Assessment will be auto displayed. Agency user can select the date and then respective tasks created for that date will be automatically shown.
For Example: – If in Assessment the five tasks have been set particularly for Sunday. Then if an Agency User will try making schedule say of 28th Oct’18 i.e. Sunday then the system will show those tasks while creating schedules as well.
