New functionality in the HR module, used to create Brands and assign Locations to them.
Reason for the Change
The WFM UK engineering team are working on some new 'E-Sign' document functionality that will allow customers to send out documents, such as contracts, from the HR module. This change will make it possible to use different E-Sign accounts for each different Brand if required.
All WFM UK customers.
Please note: Although it will be possible to create Brands in WFM UK following this release, there will be no related functionality other than the ability to report on Brands and Locations within customised reporting. More information relating to E-Sign functionality will be released later in 2023.
Once released, a new Brand creation page will be available for all HR customers.

- Enter the Brand details as required:
- Brand Code - an accounting system code for the Brand, if applicable
