Recently deployed features

The following software features have been deployed in the past 12 months

People Module

Last update: 08.03.2022

Our new configuration allows the client to block employees from being able to add or change their photos, e.g. because you want to take a consistent approach within the organisation.

Systems Administrators can configure the timing of auto-logouts from the system, i.e. specify the number of minutes of inactivity. This functionality is not designed for Single Sign On (SSO) clients.

Configure notifications for future employment end dates, e.g. for the expiry of fixed term contracts.

Employees can now have secondary cost centres, with the split assigned as a percentage.

In addition to having a legal name, HR can now also configure a display name that will appear in the UI for colleagues (but not in reports).

Collaboration Modules

Last update: 01.05.2022

Send an reminder to survey invitees to complete a survey.

In addition to the multiple-choice and multiple answers functionality, PeopleWeek’s Survey Module now has free text questions.
Any free text responses are downloaded in a separate report.

Intranet Modules

Last update: 01.05.2022

he number of page views or downloads (for file articles) is now published both within the thumbnail and in the article when you open it.

Payroll Partners

Last update: 08.03.2022

Payroll Partners can download documents related to payroll from employees’ personal folders (those folders that the client has authorised).

Payroll Partners can be given permission to access employee absences and related documents, e.g. medical certificates.

Pay Management

Last update: 29.05.2022

Say goodbye to Excel spreadsheets and digitalise your process for salary and bonus reviews, as well as promotion recommendations.
The module will allow you to configure your own approval workflows in line with your organisation’s process.

In each employee’s payroll profile (accessible by HR and payroll partners), you can indicate that the individual should not be included in payroll exports (e.g. because the person is a consultant).

Our new functionality allows HR and Payroll Partners to correct previously executed pay elements in a way that corrects the original payment or deduction as opposed to creating a new one.
This approach is user-friendly and provides transparency in payroll reporting.

Performance Modules

Last update: 01.05.2022

Run a report to see how many active objectives and development objectives each employee has and the date of the most recent update.

A new feature allows you to make the comment field mandatory depending on the employee’s or manager’s answer to a multiple choice question.

Recruitment Module

Last update: 01.05.2022

Anonymise the applications of a job applicant (in advance of the 2 year auto-anonymisation), for example, because a candidate has request it. This allows you to comply with data privacy requirement and also be able to report on application statistics.

The existing “Additional Questions” functionality in the administration section of the Recruitment Module, can now be used to ask open-end questions with an unlimited number of characters in the response. Some clients are already using this functionality to require job applicants to include a cover/motivation letter when submitting their application.

Insert an « expected hire date » when you create a vacancy. This extra data point is also included in the vacancy report.

HR can now configure a default acknowledgment email for spontaneous job applicants. It works very similarly to the default acknowledgment email for job applicants to a specific vacancy.

PeopleWeek’s new job description functionality allows HR to create job descriptions in 6 languages. Once created, the job description is linked to employees’ job titles and the creation of job vacancies in the Recruitment Module. Candidates can then apply for the job in the language of their choice.

HR can submit new vacancies for approval and they cannot be published until approved.

Time & Attendance Modules

Last update: 08.05.2022

System administrators can change the default work schedule by entity for new hires. The default work schedule is automatically loaded into the timesheet of new hires and can be subsequently changed at an individual level if the new hire’s work schedule is different to the default.

Employee timesheet reports, with a number of filters, are now available in Excel, as well as PDF.

Managers can cancel and delete approved absences, e.g. because the employee asks them to change the date.

Open-ended absences are possible, for example when an employee is signed off work long-term due to an illness or accident.

Managers can change timesheets after they have been submitted or auto-submitted by their team member.

Reporting
