Office Admins Working with Leave Applications

Today we have a quick but very important announcement for you: upon high demand, we have added the Manage Leave Applications functionality to Office Administrator users. You may recall that this was originally only available for Full Administrator users to review, approve or reject Leave Applications generated by employees from the Timecard GPS application.

In the past we also talked about how Administrators are able to add vacation time for employees that do not use the application but their payroll is managed through our system. We also made an update post when the Timecard GPS app added the ability to request for Vacation, Holiday and Sick leave.

Well, now Office Admins will be able to take part in the approval process! To access this functionality, just log in and go to the Staff section in the Administration tab and select "Manage Leave Applications":

From here, you will be able to utilize all of the Leave Admin features, including adding PTO, Family and even Maternity Leave!

That's all for now, leave us a comment below in case you have any questions!

Customizing Company Holidays

Hello everyone! Today we have a brand new feature that will complement the configuration of User Type Holiday hours. With that, you were able to visualize the total hours that an employee would be getting on a specific working Holiday, so that Payroll Administrators can then approve these hours in case they should be counted towards the Timesheet.

By default, our system will use a predetermined set of Holidays according to the country that your account is setup with, but now you will be able to select exactly which of those Holidays should apply to your company setup.

Getting this done is pretty straightforward; first go to the Administration tab and select "Configure Timesheet Settings", which is found under the Staff section:

Then scroll down until you find the "Holiday Pay" section, make sure that "Output holiday pay" is enabled, as per the previous guide, then click on "Define Holiday Days".

Select the years that the Holidays should be pulled for (by default the current year will be already selected and pre-loaded), then click the "Get Holidays" button:

Find the days that you don't need and click on the red X to delete them.

Then scroll to the bottom and click "Save Holidays" to apply the changes:

You can also click on the plus sign if  you wish to insert your own customized Holidays, just enter the Holiday name, the calendar date and the observed date, then click the "Save Holidays" button:

When you go back to this screen, the new Holiday will be added to the system:

One more important thing to add is that you need to make sure to tick the checkbox on each of the Holidays that you wish to apply to the company's timesheets. This step is required in order to be able to view these days in your staff's timesheet when working on approving them. Once you are happy with the changes, click "Save Holidays":

That's it for today's post, we hope you can get the best out of this new feature. Stay tuned for more exciting news!
