ApplyToEducation EasyConnect Update – March 27th, 2020

W 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 Sunday morning from 5-8am EST.  The below features will improve your processes and save HR & Administrators time.

What Is Going Live March 29th

Generating Contact Lists

  • We have optimized how Contact Lists are generated so the system starts contacting Replacements as soon as it has the first couple of strategies processed.  This will improve turnaround time when an absence is created during a peak period (like mornings). (Thanks Peel)

Adjustment Logs

  • When you cancel a Replacement and they are notified by phone or text, the time stamp of when they were contacted only appears beside their name in the Adjustment Log. (Thanks District School Board of Niagara)

Creating Absences

  • When additional days are added to an existing absence we now log who added them.  View by clicking the link beside ‘Sent to HR’. (Thanks District School Board of Niagara)
  • Reason for Absence is now automatically displayed in absences where ‘no employee is absent’. (Thanks Windsor-Essex Catholic)

Cancelling Absences

If your Board has turned on the feature to block Replacements from receiving offers for a date they cancelled, we now only block them for the first day if they cancelled a multi-day absence. (Thanks Simcoe)
