What's New in HR Management for Spectrum 2024 R1

The 2024 R1 release of HR Management for Spectrum introduces notifications for W-2 forms. This release is available as of 1/23/24.

Notification Management

New! W-2 Notifications

Employees will now receive a notification when they have a new W-2 form available in their Employee Self-Service portal if you enable Pay Stubs Notifications (Admin Settings > Notification Settings). This feature is designed to ensure that employees have timely access to their W-2 information.

Tip: Notifications are sent to the email address and mobile phone number that employees have listed on their ​Notification Preferences​ page. Employees who need help updating their notification preferences can refer to the following article: Manage Notification Preferences​​.

New! Mute W-2 notifications

To allow employees to mute W-2 notifications (and notifications for personal information changes), enable ​Allow Employees to opt out of ALL digital notifications​ from the Admin Settings > Notification Settings​ page​​​. See Configure Notification Settings​ for more details.

If you enable this setting, your employees will now see two checkboxes on the Personal tab of their Notification Preferences page:

  • A checkbox that allows them to Mute all approval notifications (available as of the 2023 R8 release).
  • A new checkbox that allows them to Mute all W-2 notifications.

Employees can select one or both of these checkboxes to mute notifications as appropriate.
