We have updated Roubler to version 7.4 with some new improvements and bug fixes.
For businesses who use Roubler for their payroll:
- Different employees can now have different leave accrual rules in Roubler. This allows payroll managers to override the primary pay category and/or leave allowance template for an employee and have greater control over payroll at a granular level. This feature is particularly useful for our UK customers, because the way leave is accrued in the UK varies greatly between companies, and employees often negotiate different leave arrangements as part of their contract.
For example, one full time employee may receive four weeks of leave per year (so they might accrue approximately 0.42 hours of leave for every full work day), but another full time employee may only have two weeks of leave per year (meaning they accrue leave at half the rate).
The settings for this feature are located in "Settings -> Leave Rules" and "Settings -> Pay Types" and in the "Finance and Payroll" section of the employee profile.
- A “Pay hours per week” field has been added to employee profiles. This field is shown when the pay rate is set to per month or per annum, and is used to calculate the hourly rate for employees.
- A “Back” button has been added to the "Pay levels" page when adding or editing items to make it easier to navigate.
- The “Dismissible” property on the dashboard notification is now a toggle rather than a button, providing an improved user experience.
- It is now easy to choose whether a dashboard notification should be sent to all companies, or only the ones selected:
For MYOB Advanced Team users, and other users directly managing their own rule sets:
- Pay run templates have been created to provide payroll officers with a better way to organise employees into groups and manage their payments separately (e.g. full time staff paid monthly, full time staff paid fortnightly, and casual staff, can now be processed in different groups).
- A new "minimum shift hours by day" rule has been added to the pay rules engine, which allows administrators to enforce the payment of minimum shift lengths based on specific days (e.g. on weekdays you could set a minimum shift payment length of three hours, then a minimum of four hours on Sundays or public holidays).
- Pay slips are now available in MYOB Advanced Team.
- For New Zealand companies using pay rules - where the regular date, or the alternate date for a public holiday falls on an ordinary working day for an employee, the regular date will be treated as a public holiday. Previously, the alternate date was being used instead.
- Users will now see a confirmation message when editing permission groups in settings.
- In the roster it is now easier to visually distinguish overnight shifts when temporarily varying the standard hours of a shift.
- The "Under contracted hours" pay item was displaying on shift cost breakdown if employee used default standard hours, which is now fixed.
- We've fixed an issue with the timesheet screen, where the "Edit" window was closing when the user clicked outside the window.
- The delete button for attachments now works correctly in the leave request form.
- When typing in the email address field on the invite page for new staff the text cursor no longer jumps to the next field prematurely.
- Unavailable expense types are now correctly hidden from users.
- Dashboard shift request notifications now always dismiss correctly.
- The superannuation field no longer appears for locations outside of Australia.
- Rejected timesheets will no longer reappeared as unassociated timesheets.
- We have fixed an issue with the "On specific days" pay rule, that was preventing the settings for Sundays from being saved.
- We've fixed an issue with forward-dating payslips, where employees were able to see their pay slips before the specified date in some rare circumstances.
- It is now only possible to set the expiration date of a dashboard notification in the future.
- When a manager declines a leave request the "Reason" field is now mandatory.
- When a shift is unpublished, it will automatically become unassociated.
