Friday Feature - HRA Delay Posting
Remember I told you last week how much I liked HRA To Dos because they are handy-dandy reminders of what needs to be done. Well, I have to say that I like the Delay Posting feature in HRA Items even better because it actually goes out and does it for me! (I also have to say that this is one of the most fantastic features suggested by San Joaquin COE!) Check it out!
Let's say you have an employee who is moving their home residence. They tell you well in advance, in fact, several months before they move. Now say that you enter an HRA for the change in their employee demographics. Of course, you want the address change to take effect on the day of the move, not on the day the HRA is approved, which most likely will be only a few days after you submit the HRA.
All you have to do is enter the move date (10/1/2014) in the Delay Posting Until field on the HRA and the Employee record will not be updated with the new address until that date or when the HRA is approved, whichever is later.
For goodness sake, that is so easy. If I hadn't just moved to the best place ever, I might want to move again just to use this awesome feature!
