Product Release | 05.29.18

We are excited to release new features for both our HRIS and Benefits Administration modules. Additionally, we have made a few enhancements for our Broker partners in our Broker Portal module. Please read on to find out more and as always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions.

e-Signatures & Forms Upload (Company Admin)

With this functionality, you can upload any document and/or form to your Flock system and route it via the Tasks functionality. This can also accommodate either full e-signatures or simply the user's initials.

Once uploaded, simply map either system fields or create new fields and assign to your employee(s) via Task. Your employee(s) will then click on the task and complete the document. We can accommodate free text, checkmarks, system fields, and also e-signatures!

Note: this feature is available on request - just contact your friends on our support team and they will activate this feature.

'Effective date' based changes (Employee Profile)


Now, you can make changes and adjustments to an Employee Profile, then schedule those changes to go into effect on the date you determine (now or future).

This release also includes enhancements to our current and change history reporting. We have also added a “salary history report” in the “Pre-defined Reports" section. Here you can download a complete company record of all compensation changes for all employees, including:

  • Combined changes in one effective date
  • Schedule employment/compensation changes
  • View History
  • Pending changes

Bulk upload documents (Employee Profile)


Flock always had the ability to upload any type of documents to an Employee's Profile. Now, you can upload multiple employee documents all at once, and easily modify permissions to permit or restrict access to particular documents.

  • Upload multiple employee documents at once
  • Sort documents by category
  • Set base level access permissions for employees and employee's managers

Reference documents (Company Level)


In a continuing effort to provide administrators control over their employee documentation, we’ve added the ability to view and sort reference documents by type or eligibility group.

  • Customize the view setting for all employee documents
  • Viewable by employment type, location or job category
  • Pre-set your preferred settings

  • View the employees with the respective roles via the action icons on the right of each role.
  • Create additional roles and assign what employee data they can view/edit and actions they can take.

Time-off policy functionality improvements

  • Additional roles and permissions options for administrators
