MYOB Advanced Workforce Management 24.1 January 2024

MYOB Advanced Workforce Management 24.1 features a range of improvements to make sending onboarding invitations easier, and a rework of the filters on the Employee screen to make it much easier to find who you need to find.

What's new?

Improved filters on the Employees screen

It's now heaps easier to find what you're looking for in the Employees screen.

We've completely reworked the Filter Employees panel so you can show whichever group of employees you want (even all of them). You can also easily see where new employees are at in the onboarding process, as we've made the onboarding status a separate field.

In addition, the screen now defaults to show the last filtered view, so you don't need to reset your filters each time you open it.

For more information, see Navigating the Employees screen

Clock questions added to the new location clock app

Employees clocking in through a location clocking device using the new web app can now answer clocking questions, just like they were using the mobile app on their own phone.

After they enter their PIN, the clock questions will pop up for them to answer.

Add location and permissions to new employees when inviting or manually adding them

To make adding new employees quicker and easier, you can now set their location and permission access as you create them. You no longer have to remember to do it as an extra step.

To do this, just select them from the new Location and Permission group fields in the Add New Employee or Invite employee screens.

Send onboarding invites by SMS

When sending onboarding invites to new employees, you can now send them to a mobile number instead of an email address. The new employee will get an SMS with a link to their onboarding form.

To use the new feature, just enter a cellphone number into the new Send invite to field. If you enter an email address it will send the invite by email as usual.

For more information on sending onboarding invites, see Sending and monitoring an onboarding invitation.

Improved onboarding invitation checking to make sure they're not already in the system

To help stop you sending multiple onboarding invites to the same person, we now check that the email address on the onboarding invite doesn't match an existing user's email address.

We check the email addresses against both the Contact details and Notification information sections of your employees' profiles, and if it's already in use we'll let you know.

For more information on sending onboarding invitations, see Sending and monitoring an onboarding invitation.

Easier break entry

We've made it easier to add breaks to shifts, whether you're adding a shift or a timesheet.

For automatic breaks, you can now choose whether apply them to individual shifts and timesheets, and also choose whether they're used by default.

For manually entered breaks, we've simplified how you enter them – just enter the number of minutes of break and, if you're tracking exact break times, add the start time as well. That's it, and it's the same on timesheets and shifts.

For more information on breaks, shifts, and timesheets, see:

New timesheet filters

So you can find the timesheets you need more easily, we've added the ability to filter them by cost centres and leave types.

You can access the new options on the Timesheet Filters screen.

For more information, see Navigating the Manage Time screen.

Agreement fields added to the onboarding invite importer

To make it easier to send large numbers of onboarding invites, we've added the new agreement-related fields to the importer file.

When importing onboarding invites, you can now set the following:

  • Agreement

  • Classification

  • Employment type

  • Pay condition

  • Leave entitlement

  • Remuneration type

"11 hours on a single day" pay rule condition added (Australia)

To continue improving our ability to meet the needs of the Australian awards system, this time for the retail awards, pay rules can now incorporate the condition that workers can do one shift of 11 hours, and no others over 9 hours.

Minor changes
  • For consistency with recent updates, we've changed "Pay classification" to "Agreement" throughout the software.

  • To help prevent brute-force attacks, we now log the number of successful and failed login attempts for each user account.

  • We've improved the content of some of our automated email templates, adding logos and improving the header and footer content.
