Escape Online 5 v15.03 is now available

Release 15.03 is now available! Since it’s our calendar year end release it’s full of regulatory changes including updates for 1099s, W2s, ACA (Affordable Care Act), AB1522 (Sick Leave), SB854 (Vendor Registration), and CTC (California Commission on Teacher Credentialing).

Besides all of the regulatory changes 15.03 also contains many enhancements requested by customers. One of my personal favorites is the ability to open attachments, tutorials and How Tos in a separate window which will be very useful with the new activity for ACA Reporting. Now, users can have the activity and How To open at the same time and move it to a second monitor or toggle back and forth between the two on a single monitor while continuing to work! What a time saver!  (If you haven't read Robin's post earlier this week, check out her in-depth review of this new open-window feature.)

Another one of my favorite features in this release is notification for reports. Users now have the ability to be notified via message center, email or both when you close the report activity (or Escape Online 5) before the report completes, schedule a report, or when someone runs a report for you or forwards a report to you. Another great time saver! So, when your boss forwards that all-important report, you will be notified immediately and be the hero of the day. 

Of course there are many more exciting changes in 15.03 and you can see a full list of all of the changes right NOW in the Release Notes under the Online Resources – Release Information activity. And while you are in Online Resources, you should take the time to watch Terri and Leslie’s always entertaining Top 10 video! 

And, don't forget to register for the 15.03 Release Review.
