IVR (Telephony) Update when Clocking Out.
Currently, if your Office Settings prevent Caregivers from clocking out without updating all tasks, the IVR (Telephony) method has not enforced the setting. Now, even the IVR will not allow the Caregiver to clock out if all tasks are not updated (depending upon Office Settings). In such a case, a message will now be played "Please update your tasks before clocking out". IVR options will allow Caregiver to update all tasks. Once done, the Caregiver will be allowed to clock out.
