  • There is no configuration to control when this shows up, i.e. how many days prior to the actual date, this is hardcoded to 5 days prior to the actual date.
  • No text will be displayed for any birthday or anniversary that is not within 5 days.
  • The text will be displayed for both Matrix Reports & Direct Reports.
  • The tile shows under 'My Team' section.
  • If the direct/matrix report has photo, it displays correctly on the tile. Hover on the photo and you can see the full name of this person.
  • If the direct/matrix report doesn't have photo, it will display a default photo and the name of the person on top of the tile.
  • You are unable to activate work anniversary and deactivate birthday or vice versa. Both are activated together and you are unable to amend this.
