  • Time Off


The old ESS UI will be deprecated by release b1908. All customers will have to mandatorily use the new ESS UI post b1908 release.

IMPORTANT: It will not be possible to revert back to the old UI.

What is the key benefit, business case, or features of this initiative for our customers? 

  • The new Fiori UI is supporting accessibility standards and has a responsive design which enables employees to use it both on the desktop and on mobile devices. The old UI was lacking in these respects.
  • In addition, the new UI also offers features which were not available on the old UI. Specifically, employees will now be able to record series of recurring absences and use the split and delimit function to resolve collisions of absences, such as sickness during vacation.
