Enhancements to features April 15, 2015
In this article, we'll cover the following feature enhancements:
- Case-related email notifications for receipt status
- Enhancements to the receipts page
- Improved information on email notifications
- Status Docs Notes available as an output field in the Ad Hoc reports
- Easily identify whether an individual is “Visa Priority Eligible"
- Moved and Merged the EAD/AP and Biometric sections
- Employer Contact Sync - DOL to INSZoom
- Prevailing Wage Fields Change
We’ve made significant changes to case related alert notifications and the receipt number page.
The Email alerts interface has been changed so that case managers may receive a notification whenever a receipt number is added to a case or the receipt status is updated.Now, Case Managers can choose to receive an email notification upon case creation for all cases or only their assigned cases, and to receive an email notification when a receipt number is added or the status is updated for all cases or only their assigned cases.
We’ve also simplified the receipt number interface itself. Based on the case status, only the appropriate fields will display. For example, if a receipt number is entered and the status of the receipt is approved, then only the fields relating to that approval will appear. If the status is “withdrawn”, then the only fields that will display are those related to that status.
Additionally, if data is edited but the status has not changed, we will no longer automatically send an email to the client. Users may manually send the information using the Save and Email button.
The notifications will now include more specifics about what changed in the receipt number page. The actual changed status will be reflected in the email notification.
We’re adding more details to the notification as well, including receipt status, RFE dates if the status is RFE, Withdrawn information or denial details.
Status Docs Notes
Users will be able to add the Status Docs Notes field to Ad Hoc reports.
Visa Priority Eligibility
Users lose a considerable amount of efficiency and effectiveness with having to manually review and calculate whether an individual is currently Visa Priority Filing Eligible. Now, the system will calculate their eligibility and display it in the Case Details/Dates section and is available as an output field in Reports.
New merged EAD/AP info section
We've updated the EAD/AP page to clearly segregate the information specific to these documents. In the FN profile, select US Immigration info and scroll down to the "EAD/AP Combo Card" section. Click the + icon to expand each section.
Employer Contact Sync - DOL to INSZoom
Case managers may now sync and/or edit the “Employer Contact Information” from DOL website to INSZoom. This information is pulled into the Employer contact section while e-filing ETA-9089 forms.
Prevailing Wage Fields Change
We've moved the "Offered Wage From", "Offered Wage To" and "Offered Wage Per" fields from the subsection “Perm wage rate info” to the subsection “client proposed job info”. The details can be viewed at FN and Case levels, in the bottom of the Job Details section.
