Issue number Issue Description
514087 BenefitEligibilityProcessResult should include datetime that was used in processing. BenefitEligibity processing result now includes the datetimestamp for last processing, which was missing earlier.
526903 Benefit enrollment fails for plans with dependents when Auto-select designees is turned on in Human resources shared parameters. Fixed the issue where benefit enrollment was failing for dependants when the Auto-select designees option was turned on for default designees.
521922 Show absence without detail parameter shows details of time-off requests in team absence calendar. The leave type, leave type color, and day details were being shown in the team absence calendar when Show absence without detail was set to Yes in Leave and absence parameters. This has been addressed, and now the leave type doesn't display and the default leave type color (dark blue) is used for all leave types on the team absence calendar.
527316 Title changes for Job, Position, and Worker notifications don't sync. A Title relation was previously added to the Job, Position, and Worker entities. The sync for this relation works for the sync from Human Resources to Dataverse, but didn't work for notifications from Dataverse. This has been addressed.
512275 Remove the color options from Leave and absence parameters. Now that colors are defined on the leave type, the colors options are no longer needed in Leave and absence parameters, so they were removed.
437112 Misleading error message text during employee position assignment. Updated the error message when hiring a worker and attempting to assign the worker to a position that isn't active. Updated message The specified position is not active as of the employment start date. Please check the duration of this position.
527816 Performance issues with the Time off page. Performance has been improved on the Time off page.
523158 BenefitPeriodMigrationUpgrade and BenefitPlanMigrationUpgrade not executing. Fixed issues with benefit migration jobs related to Period and Plan not executing properly.
