Today's update to the Indigo Suite includes the option to block your Scheduler to prevent modifications from being made to allocated shifts by other Time & Attendance users, the ability add your company's NACE code in your settings, a reporting enhancement for the leave accruals report, and other tweaks and improvements for the Payroll and Time & Attendance modules.
You may find it necessary to block your Scheduler to prevent modifications to allocated shifts made by fellow Time & Attendance users (such as department heads) before you make allocations to attendance exceptions.
You can now block your Scheduler by setting a date which prevents allocated shift modifications from being made prior to the date set.
You can now enter your company's NACE code by going to Payroll > Settings > Company Details, or when you are setting up a new company.
You can use the search icon to look up your company's NACE code. Entering your company's VAT number is another way to do this; Indigo will automatically call your company's NACE code from the Malta Enterprise web service. NACE is a component of the European statistical infrastructure for producing comparable statistics.
Please read on to find out what else we have included in this update for your Indigo Suite. Enjoy!

Indigo Time & Attendance fixes and improvements
An issue where attempting to create a shift pattern in the Scheduler that starts with blank days would disallow the pattern from being created has been fixed. You can now create shift patterns that start with days that have no allocated shifts as expected.
Attempting to save a reward for a shift preset without required conditions produces an error message as expected.
Issues with incorrect or absent attendance allocation tags for employees in the Resolve Attendance Exceptions page have been fixed.
The Clear pattern from this day onward option from the Scheduler context menu will not appear in the menu when you select a non-shift pattern.
Issues stemming from the Organisation Groups tab in the Shift Accessibility pop-up window in the Shift Presets page have been fixed. The Save button is no longer disabled, the selected option is no longer hidden, and the shift containing the selected option is no longer made available to all employees when an Organisation Group option was selected.
Clearing a shift pattern from the Scheduler in which part of the pattern was already sent to payroll works as expected.
Making a quick edit to an empty cell in a shift pattern in the Scheduler no longer produces an error.
