Other Minor but Helpful Enhancements:

New hires can now complete the onboarding panels on Android Devices.

Configuration Type: Universal

Prerequisite: Android version 4.0+, Default browser or Google Chrome, SAP Signature Management by DocuSign with Remote Signing enabled

Why is it important? Previously, onboarding panels were only able to be completed on iOS devices for mobile.

Other Minor but Helpful Enhancements:

  • Multi Panel (Universal): Previously, users would have to delete all panels after the one they want to delete and re-enter the information on multiple panels. This update allows the deletion of middle panels in a multi panel entry. Delete button now enabled to delete the middle panel. 
  • ONB-EC XML Mapping (Universal): Prior to this update, when the XML for ONB to EC mapping was updated, it caused an error with any previously mapped job.code data. Now the XML will no longer overwrite UI mapped fields from ONB to EC.
  • Variant Alerts (Universal): Prior to this update, no warnings would display when the variant is left blank for job classification. Now, an alert will appear to notify the user of a missing variant.
