Structured Planning: Optimized Workforce Scenario Process

With this release, we have optimized the performance of workforce scenario processing. Additionally, when a new employee is added, but not processed, that employee will not be reflected in the reporting cube. Only after processing the employee will the data appear in the reporting.

For existing employees, if their data has already been published and there are updates, the data will remain unchanged until the employee is processed.

If you have automated installation for SpotlightXL, there is nothing you need to do as the update will be done automatically. If you manually install SpotlightXL and related updates, you must access the Spotlight for Office Installation Guide and download the latest update.
