Benefits Summary Page Redesign

  • Minimized plan details to provide a succinct side by side comparison of employer/employee contributions to the plans in which they are enrolled.
  • Individual “show details” trays open details on enrollees as well as plan documents and enrollment forms downloads.
  • “Additional Information” section displays all captured information like tobacco use, wellness credits, and pretax and post-tax data can be displayed back to the employee.

  • Added Excel download options for all pre-defined reports.
  • New “time-off balance” and “accrual” reports along.

Quick Links

In this release, we’re excited to introduce Quick Links to our Home Activity page. Quick Links is a sub-navigation system that connects key related internal pages within Flock. 

  • Enable users, especially new users, to quickly find the specific subpages that initiate tasks, modify profiles settings or request time-off.
  • Quick Links re-enforces the Home/Activity page as the go-to resource with Flock.
  • Quick Links are tied to roles and permissions.
