Happy First day of April and the beginning of spring! Here's what's new over here at Argyle -
As always, Argyle is continuing to expand our coverage. You can now access employment records stored at Albertsons, Cardinal Health, Cisco, Delta Air Lines, Foot Locker, Jabil, Ryder, Tyson Foods, Whirlpool, and 108 other companies.
Additionally, it is now possible to access employment records of companies that utilize Employee Express, BambooHR, Oracle Cloud HCM, and Paychex.
The full list of coverage can be found here
We launched an updated version of the Argyle Console
. In addition to a refreshed design, you'll notice several enhancements that make it easier to understand your users' employment data and manage your Argyle implementation:
The 'Data Viewer' tab, now called Users, surfaces more information about your users and allows you to sort and filter (for example, by employer or date connected)
A new 'Income Summary' section within user profiles displays a holistic view of a user's income
The API Keys tab now lets you create multiple keys for your Argyle environment
A simplified one-page layout for user profiles allows you to view all employment data at once, rather than across separate tabs for Payouts, Documents, etc.
API: User Endpoint Upgrades
It is now possible to create a new user directly via the Argyle API (instead of initializing Argyle Link) with a POST request
. You can also add
additional data to a user object by utilizing the
API: New Fields
We added new
pay_distribution.error_message fields to the Accounts resource. These fields provide additional information in case there's an error when a user connects their account or updates their pay distribution.
We added a few other minor fields to the API, as well. Please refer to our Changelog
for a full list.
