ApplyToEducation EasyConnect Update – April 9th, 2020

We hope you are doing well during these trying times.  Our entire team has been working from home, in isolation, to ensure your needs are met.

We are excited to share EasyConnect enhancements going live Saturday night at 11pm EST.  The below features will improve your processes and save HR & Administrators time.

What Is Going Live April 11th

Locking Absences

  • The Employee Group Calendar allows you to lock absences so employees cannot edit or de-activate their absences on the dates you have ‘locked’. This will make a big difference in situations where schools are closed unexpectedly for issues like pandemics, inclement weather, or labour action.  (Thanks Peel)

EasyConnect Reports

  • We added the ability to track who deactivated an absence.  Ask your Account Manager to add this field to any of your reports if you want to see it. (Thanks Waterloo)

Cancelling Absences

  • You can add a setting to block P/VPs from selecting the Replacement who cancelled when manually filling another absence. (Thanks Simcoe)
