Hi Reader,

Happy beginning of May. Spring is in the air and we are up to some exciting things over here at Argyle.

Additionally, it is now possible to access employment records of companies that utilize iSolvedPaperlessEmployeePaycom, and Paycor payroll solution providers.

Invite users in bulk by using the new CSV upload capability. In addition, you can now set up a pay distribution change during the user invite process.

If you are still in the testing stage or are looking to get started integrating with Argyle, you can send user invitations in Sandbox mode.

Console: Enhancements to Income Summarization

Along with providing a summary of monthly and annual income from the Payouts endpoint, Console now provides a summary of income from the Activities endpoint as well.

Developments, Analysis, and Reflections

  • At Argyle, we are intimately familiar with how likely someone is to know the password for their employment account or payroll system, because we've seen hundreds of thousands of users successfully (and unsuccessfully) provide their credentials. See a breakdown of our findings by platform here.
