Inclement Weather – To Pay or Not to Pay?

Employers should address two key questions with their inclement weather policy: How will you notify employees if the company will be open or closed?  How will employees be paid if the company is closed all day, or for a partial day? The method of payment for hourly employees when they miss work due to inclement weather is quite simple.  If a non-exempt, hourly paid employee does not work, the company is under no obligation to pay the employee.  This is true regardless if the company is open for business, or if it is closed due to the weather.  The Fair Labor Standards Act says that you must pay non-exempt employees only for time “actually worked.”  The same holds true when […]

Best Gift Ever: Upload Images & Attachments in Emails

If you’re thinking to yourself, “But sending images and attachments in Jackrabbit emails isn’t new,” you are correct. But what is new is the ability to do it without using your DropBox account. This makes many of you ecstatic! Ballet Etc Studio for the Arts’ Katelyn Secord sums it up on Jackrabbit’s Facebook page: “Honestly, it’s one of the best gifts!” We are thrilled that you find this exciting. It’s exciting for us too because the integration of cloud storage for email attachments is only the beginning of how we’re planning to leverage the cloud with Jackrabbit in the future. Keep your ears open for more. Here’s a little history: We first added the ability to use your own DropBox […]

Upload Images & Attachments in Emails

We have exciting news at Jackrabbit – you now have the ability to upload images and attach files to your emails! This has been a very popular request over the years from our customers. Last year, we added the Dropbox feature to make sharing files easier. This year, we went a step further and are giving our customers the ability to upload directly from your computer. If you want to attach a file, you’ll see the link added to the email message. If you want to insert an image, this will actually insert the image into the message. It won’t come through as an attachment. Does the Dropbox option go away? No – this will stay. Some of our customers […]

Drop-down list Hide option: Categories 1/2/3, Session, ePayment Schedule, Family Source

Jackrabbit has added the ability to make Private or Hide various values in more of your drop-down lists. Use Private to keep certain options from showing during online registration; use Hide to make specific options invisible to you and your staff when working inside your Jackrabbit database. For example, you have older sessions and you don’t want your families choosing those during online registration.  Nor, do you want you or your staff to accidentally choose an old session when setting up a class or enrolling a student.  You can mark archived sessions as Private and Hide. However, you may want to pull retention reports in the future.  When that time comes, simply uncheck the box by ‘Hide’, Save Changes.  Pull […]
