SI-2836 -
Two new fields have been added to the query builder that provides the most recent date and time that the background job for this function ran for each employee. This is so you can ensure that the score is the most up to date. The fields are named ‘Bradford Factor Updated Date/Time’ and can be found in the Employee Details area.

SI-2753 - Employees will not longer be able to edit the ‘Paid’ status of a sickness. 

SI-2635 - The value of the ‘Recover on Termination’ field in the Benefits logbook will now be correctly saved. This also confirms that if a benefit does need to be returned before an employee leaves the company, this will flag up on the leaver wizard.

SI-2736 - An additional field has been added to the Tasks area to show who had created the Task.

SI-2613 - A data correction has been made for affected users where, in some specific cases, Holiday Approval Workflows were not being taken into account when a holiday was requested.

SI-2943 - Within the API tab in Settings, API keys will now be masked to ensure security - some parts of the key will not be displayed.
