April 2023 Releases: Prevent Training Fast Forwarding, Improved Journal Dashboard Experience, Document Audit Trails and More.

Forbes recently noted that customization is one of the main challenges to anticipate when changing HR systems. Every organization has unique requirements - and a one size fits all approach is about as likely to achieve success as trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. That's why it's important to have a highly customizable HR solution that offers a wide range of tools and features to allow for personalization and configuration. And that's exactly what Paylocity aims to do. In April, Paylocity released new features to improve your user experience and allow for further customization.


Ensure employees gain the full value of training

Increase compliance and ensure employees are properly trained for their positions. In Paylocity Learning, you can control which videos have to be watched all the way through and which don't with a simple “toggle” to prevent training fast forwarding. After employees complete the training, they can even post it to a Community group if they found it helpful to increase engagement among their peers. For example, a restaurant chain recently hired a waitstaff team for a new location and the new hires need to complete necessary training such as First aid and Hand Hygiene for Food Handlers. To ensure no element of the training is skipped, the hiring manager can prevent the ability to fast forward the training videos, so the new hires are accurately prepared to start.



Easily create, navigate, and interact with journals

Access journal details in a single view to simplify the performance review process. With less clicks and greater visibility, the improved journal dashboard allows you to quickly engage in performance conversations with your employees and keep track of progress. Cross company supervisors can even view journals for all employees regardless of which company within the company set their employees reside. For example, a regional manager for a quick-service restaurant most likely has multiple locations and company sets for their employees. They can now manage all journals in a single view to increase efficiency and employee development.



Ensure data availability, integrity, and confidentiality

Increase compliance with applicable standards, laws, and policies and also understand who is managing files, and when, with document audit trails. For instance, the regional manager in the example above notices an error in a pay change document for one of the new hires that was not there before. They can easily export a .csv file of audit information to see who made that change in just a few simple clicks.

Easily manage candidates with status codes

Be more efficient when it comes to outreach and reporting with candidate status codes in workflow stages. Status codes are a way of categorizing candidates based on where they are in the hiring process and can be customized depending on your company’s specific needs. They help you communicate more effectively, increase recruiting efficiency, and make better candidate decisions to further enhance your hiring experience.
