Tasks are getting a whole new look on the web app. Although the functionality will remain the same, design changes have been made to improve the user experience when viewing, adding, assigning, and editing Tasks from the dashboard tab and from the Tasks tab on a Client or Employee profile.
As part of these improvements, Dispatchable Tasks have been renamed Form Attached Tasks, and Dispatchable Event Tasks have been renamed Event Tasks.
The Tasks experience will remain the same on the mobile app.
To learn more, check out the following articles:
- How do I create a new Task?
- What are the different types of Tasks in AlayaCare?
- How do I view/manage all Tasks in the system?
- How do I edit/assign/delete a Task?
Round Half Up Available as the Rounding Method in Accounting
AlayaCare can now configure agencies to use "round half up" as the rounding method instead of banker's rounding when calculating transactions or generating invoices in the Accounting module. All Australian organizations will be migrated to this rounding method upon this release.
If your agency is interested in using round half up instead of banker's rounding for transactions and invoices in AlayaCare, please contact your Client Success Manager to have it configured.
New URLs for Tabs in Workforce Management and Accounting
As part of AlayaCare's efforts to ensure deep linking throughout the web app, the app will now direct users to a unique URL for each of the tabs in Workforce Management (Client Schedules, Employee Overview, Visit Approval, Vacant Visits, Late and Missed Visits, Unscheduled Visits, and Vacant Recurrences). This means you will be able to bookmark each tab individually and access each page directly via a link.
New URLs have also been added for the tabs in the Accounting menu: Billing, Reconciliation (when the LHIN Integration feature flag is enabled), Expense Reconciliation (when the Supplier feature flag is enabled) , Payroll, Budgets (if the Budgets feature flag is enabled), Payment, Accounting Exports, and Accounting Settings. The old URLs will automatically redirect to the new URls, so any links you have bookmarked will still work as expected.
