New-Look Timesheets

Our timesheets module has had a refresh, simplifying and streamlining the process for reviewing employee time entries.

Simplified View The key change has been streamlining the module to contain all the information you need on a single centralised page. You now have the ability to jump between employees while remaining in the same view, making it quicker and easier to handle your teams' time entries. Quick Tools We’ve also introduced additional tools to let you effortlessly add details for missed shifts based on the schedule or quickly approve bulk entries. This speeds things up whether an employee has forgotten to clock in or has consistently clocked in perfectly, leaving you able to pay your team promptly and save the time to spend on more exciting jobs. Advanced Filters Our filter enhancements make finding individual time entries easier, too. Search for entries with particular tags, or filter to view specific employment types like full-time and part-time. No more wasting time trawling through different employee profiles to find the information you need; instead, it’s right at your fingertips.

Unscheduled Shift Settings

We've noticed that some staff can get a little confused when seeing unscheduled shift options available, which can affect their timesheets. Unscheduled shifts are your secret weapon for last-minute emergencies when you unexpectedly need to draft an employee into work. When used correctly can be a big help to your business. 

To prevent your staff from clocking in for an unscheduled shift when they're already on the rota, we've introduced some additional settings to give you more control.  Now, as well as the option to enable or disable unscheduled shifts you can also only allow employees to clock in for an unscheduled shift if they don't already have any shifts scheduled for that day. It's all about giving you the flexibility you need.
