Schedule Modified Push Notifications
iOS users can now tap on a Modified Schedule push notification, and be directed to the corresponding page in the app. This feature was released for Android users in the 4.49 Release, and the write-up can be found in the 188.8.131.52 Release Notes (02.16.2017).

New Features & Improvements | Web
New Inactive Employees Filter
A new filter has been created for the Staff List to separate active and inactive employees. Selecting View All Employees will display all active employees while View Inactive Employees will only display inactive employees. It’s important to note that inactive employees will no longer appear with a strikethrough.
New Staff Details – Address Improvements
Visual improvements have been made to the organization of the the address fields when viewing employees. The city and state fields are now on their own row to accommodate for longer entries.
New Staff Details - Remove Waiver
Because meal and break policies can be assigned to specific employees, the Meal Waiver checkbox on the New Staff Details page has been removed.
Time Off and Request Report
A new report has been created for customers using the Time Off by Range feature, and it can be found within the Staff & Store section of the Reporting tab. Once there, users are able to filter by a specific employee (1), schedule (2), and/or job (3). The report can also be configured to display the status (Approved, Denied, Pending Approval) (4) and what specific type of request (Unpaid Time Off, Paid Time Off, Request Off/To Work) (5).
Please note that requests based on Day Parts will not appear in this report until a future Release.
First Time User Login
The screens presented to users logging into their accounts for the first time have been updated with a fresh new interface. In addition, any information that has already been entered (either through integration or manually added by a manager), will be populated on the Your Personal Info page.
