This week's release:
Global | Reward & Recognition | File uploader now self-service
When it comes to sending awards en masse to your people, we know that it works best (and makes the biggest impact) when the process is swift and as seamless as possible.
That’s why we’ve been working hard to make the Reward & Recognition file uploader “self-service” in time for the end-of-year period - when we know many organizations like to send out awards across the business. It means clients can now skip the middleman in the file upload process and save precious time, making it quicker and smoother to send out bulk awards to employees!
How does it work?
It’s simple - from Reward Manager, just create a file template, upload the file containing the relevant data for the awards, and the awards will be sent out to your people according to your program set-up (i.e. email, post or onsite alert). In order for clients to upload their own files, they will need the "RR Budget Holder" permission in Reward Manager. Read our guide How to: Upload an award file with AwardFilePlus™ for more details.
Award types configuration
As well as allowing clients to create templates, upload files and dispatch awards, we are also opening up the Award Types configuration, so they can set up as many awards on their programs as they like. Read our guide How to: manage an AwardFilePlus™ program for more details.
Global | Wellbeing Center | Accessibility improvements
We have introduced the following accessibility improvements to the Wellbeing Center:
- Improved overall page structure and headings
- Added Play/Pause, Next and Previous buttons to the slider
- Improved navigation for keyboard-only users
- Added descriptive text for screen reader users
- Removed duplicate links
- Made clickable areas bigger, e.g. the whole tile is clickable, not just the title or call to action
- Added hover effect to all clickable tiles
Some of these improvements are not visible to regular users, as they are in the code and allow better use of assistive technologies. Others (such as the bigger clickable areas) benefit everyone, as they improve usability as a whole.
Global | Wellbeing Center | New printout format for recipes
We have made it easier for employees using the Wellbeing Center to print recipes from the platform. We removed all unnecessary information and navigation, and built a printout that focuses on the recipe itself.
Global | Platform Integrations | BambooHR and Workday welcome emails can now be automated
Previously, dispatching welcome emails created from provisioning integrations with BambooHR and Workday was a manual process. It required the attention of a Reward Manager user, who needed to frequently log in and check if there are any pending emails to dispatch.
From today, clients using BambooHR and Workday provisioning integrations will be able to choose if they want to automate this process from the Integrations Dashboard. This will be possible through a new "Automatically dispatch welcome emails?" checkbox option, introduced in the Initial Setup screen of all BambooHR and Workday integrations.
As always, keep in mind that IT admins need to go through the configuration process again, if they make any change in the Initial Setup.
