Dynamic Column Header for the Alert List

We changed the column header for the alert list to reflect the type of object that the alert is about. This change is made in My Alerts, My Processes, and My Teams.

Previously, the first column for alert list in these applications had the fixed header Employee. This column header wasn’t precise because you can configure validation rules to report alerts on other type of objects than employees.

Configuration Requirements

Synchronization Support Package EA-HR SP86 must be installed in your Employee Central Payroll system.

Please note that, while the Employee Central side of this feature is available, you can't use the feature as a whole until the support package mentioned is released. Note also that the full documentation won't be available until then either.

What's Changed

In the current version, the column header is displayed dynamically based on the alert type (for example, Cost Center) that you’ve specified for the validation rule in Configuration Workbench of Payroll Control Center.

In the previous version, the first column on all tab pages in My Alerts and the first column for the alert list in My Processes and My Teams had the fixed header Employee.
