- News Feed enhancements
🏖️ Leave Management (Beta)
In case you’ve missed it, we’ve now launched our new Leave Management (Beta) feature in the UK!
In the lead up to the Summer Holidays, we’ve been working closely with our customers to develop a new and improved way to track and manage leave inside Deputy.
You can read all about it here on our blog, but this new release allows you to keep track of leave in days or hours, set up accrual rates for automatic leave balance calculations, and includes a new Leave Dashboard that brings all your employee balances, requests and approvals into one report (that is now also exportable!).
💸 Unpaid Leave Exports
While we’re still on the topic of leave, another cool change we made outside of our Leave Management feature is the ability to export unpaid leave timesheets as a CSV file, where previously this could only be done with paid leave timesheets.
Being able to export all types of leave timesheets, regardless of the whether it’s paid or unpaid, will mean you can create an even more complete picture around leave in your business.
🗄️ Adding and removing employees in bulk
As any seasonal business knows, ramping up and down your employee headcount throughout the year can be really time consuming.
To make this easier and save you time, we’ve added the option to bulk discard and bulk reinstate employees through our people tab.
📝 New look shift notes
Shift notes are a great way to tie specific tasks, notices or general information to a particular shift to make sure nothing important gets missed.
We’ve made working with shift notes more convenient through a brand new pop up screen accessible from the Me Tab calendar, as well as expanding the shift note space when navigating through the scheduling tab.
📢 Jump-to-post News Feed enhancement
The Deputy News Feed is a great way to keep everyone up to date with everything important that’s happening in your business, from company policy updates to birthdays!
With employees able to jump straight to a specific post in the News Feed from a push notification, they can respond even faster to posts with no more scrolling.
And that’s a wrap!
