Automation And Useability Feature In End-Of-Year Update

Our software update for November 2020 features new automation and useability improvements, and includes details of our end-of-year educational events for Aurion customers.

Aurion update 11.75 (log in for access) includes a time-saving useability upgrade for the Timekeeper and new automation for APSED reporting, and also ensures you have the right file format to report on employees in New Zealand, ahead of their EOFY on Thursday 1 April, 2021.

The Aurion development team have also been concentrating on an important upgrade to the Uniface 10 software development platform, planned for late January in 2021. Our customers have already received notification of the change, so if you have any queries, please reach out to your Aurion client advocate.

Better Timekeeper useability
Aurion Self Service approvers using the Timekeeper Team Approvals function have two new buttons to make their life work better. On desktops and tablets, a new ‘Full Screen’ button displays the timesheet lines in an expanded view and removes the need to use the horizontal scroll bar.

Aurion Timekeeper new Export and Full Screen functions

The information is presented in an easy-to-review format, with features for selecting individual or groups of rows for approval. The new ‘Export’ button allows approvers to export the data into other formats, such as Excel or PDF, with just a few clicks.

Get ready for EOFY in New Zealand
We have maintained our compliance with NZ Inland Revenue Department (IRD) legislation by providing the 2020/21 NZ Payday file format for the NZ Employer Schedule Report and the 2020/21 NZ New and Departing Employees file format. Customers should review their configuration and make the appropriate changes before the first pay in April 2021.
