A few days ago, we had made enhancements to some of the major features of sumHR, such as Leave and Attendance Management, Calendar, Directory, and Organization Structure. As you know, our engineers continually test the software and work on enhancing the product wherever possible. This is in addition to working on bug fixes and suggestions given by our customers.
This time around, admins can expect even more flexibility and an improved leave feature. Here’s a list of the latest enhancements and some important bug fixes:
MORE POWER TO ADMINS
Option to delete anything in streams: An admin can now delete any message, question, polls, and events. This enhancement will make it easy to moderate the company’s in-house social network on sumHR.
Apply for leaves for anyone in the company: Earlier admins could only apply for leave on behalf of people who reported to them. Now an admin can apply for leaves for absolutely anyone in the company, including employees who are superior to the admin in the organizational hierarchy.
View leaves for anyone in the company: Previously admins could view only those leaves in which they were involved, either as managers or Auto-CC recipients. Now admins can view any leave across the company, irrespective of whether they are involved in it or not. You can find a detailed explanation about managing leaves on sumHR’s Support Center.
LEAVE POLICY UPDATES
Option to start accrual of leaves at the beginning or end of the month: Earlier when creating a leave policy, the accrual option was fixed at “start of the month”. This meant that leaves would begin accruing for that policy at the start of every new month. Based on customer feedback, we have now given an additional option. Admins can now choose whether to:
a) begin accrual of leaves at the start of every new month OR
b) accrue the leaves at/after end of the month (beginning of next month).
Improved balance counters: Previously, the employee’s leave page would only display the current available balance along with the leaves credited so far in the current year to the admins. Now we have included an additional piece of info to the counters: Balance count of Leaves carried forward from previous year.
After the launch of some major enhancements in our leave carry forward feature and leave balance import feature, we received some error/bug reports from customers immediately. These bugs have been resolved along with some minor fixes to optimize the leave calculations system.
We’re sure that these new additional Admin powers, along with the leave policy accrual update and miscellaneous bug fixes will further enhance your sumHR experience. Feel free to share any feedback in the comments section below.
