Guide: New Rule Setting for Deleting Unwanted Pending Alerts for Effective-Dated Entities

Using this new rule setting, you can delete unwanted pending alerts for several HRIS effective-dated entities when creating a new alert.

After a new alert is created following a data change, old pending alerts become irrelevant and are not expected to be sent. You can update your alert rules by including the new setting Delete Old Pending Alert Flag. This will delete unwanted pending alerts and prevent them from being sent for future data changes. Three HRIS effective-dated entities are supported now: job information, compensation information, and pay component recurring.

We built this new feature to protect customers from being confused or disturbed by unwanted alerts and to save them from having to delete such alerts manually
