Birthday and Work Anniversary tile

  • When you login as a manager the tile should display under My Team whenever the event is occurring within 5 days.
  • The sorting of the reports birthday/anniversary is based on "remainingDays".
  • The text displayed on the birthday and anniversary tile will state for example Work Anniversary Today or Birthday in 2 days.
  • There is no functionality to control when this shows up, i.e. how many days prior to the actual date, this is hardcoded to 5 days prior to the actual date.
  • No text will be displayed for any birthday or anniversary that is not within 5 days.
  • The text will be displayed for both Matrix Reports & Direct Reports.
  • If the direct/matrix report has photo, it displays correctly on the tile. Hover on the photo and you can see the full name of this person.
  • If the direct/matrix report doesn't have photo, it will display a default photo and the name of the person on top of the tile.
  • The tile by default shows under 'My Team' section.
  • You can determine where the tile is shown on the Home Page via Manage Home Page > Birthday/Work Anniversary > Select Section.
  • You can remove the tile from the Home Page via Manage Home Page > Birthday/Work Anniversary > Move To > Not Used.
  • Birthday and Work Anniversary are activated in tandem. There is no functionality to activate Work Anniversary and deactivate Birthday Anniversary or vice versa.
