This concise update brings changes to Time and Attendance, and improvements throughout Indigo.

Our T&A users can now assign and clear shift patterns to a bulk of employees at one go, saving them time. We have also added a way to deduct basic pay for hourly employees, so as to be able to allocate different rates to shifts without making manual adjustments.
