EC Alerts are available on the new Home Page in the "Take Action" tile. The tile will only appear of you have any un-actioned Alert messages.

Example: If a manager or an HR professional is informed about an HR event via EC Alerts, a separate tile called Take Action appears in the To-do sections showing the EC alert.


Use Case

If set up accordingly, EC Alerts are generated when a certain period approches its end to remind the user to take action.

For example:

You can define that the HR Admin is notified 10 days before a employee's contract ends or remind the manager that an employee returns from paternity leave. These HR alerts are now accessible via the new homepage.

Impact on existing customers

Existing and new customers, which have the new home page enabled, can view EC alerts now from a seprate tile in the ToDo section.

Info on how to configure these Alerts

Please check out the "Employee Central Workflows: Implementation and Administration" guide for details on how to configure and setup these alerts
