What's new

  • Fullscreen employee profilethe modal will now fill up the screen because bigger is better. Giving you a lot more room to amend the critical details of your staff
  • Pay rates & leave tab (Premium accounts only) - in edit mode, the 'Pay rates & leave' tab has been renamed to 'Employment details' and there's top navigation to section out pay rates and leave entitlements

Why

This is the first step to the new and improved employee profile modal that will house new features and a design revamp - exciting things coming soon for the employee profile!

Don't worry, you can still edit and manage your employees the same as before.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion updates


What's new

1. Preferred name in employee profiles to allow staff to be represented by the name they feel most comfortable with - read the help guide 

2. Removing the gender field to ensure staff don’t feel biased or pressured for personal, unnecessary information - read the help guide

3. Archiving employees (to replace “discard”) because people aren’t objects, and we know that words matter - read the help guide

4. Timesheet reviews for employees (coming soon) to help keep building transparency between managers and employees 

Why
For a week, our entire organisation dedicated its time and energy towards transforming areas in our product where we can better empower diversity, equality, and inclusivity in the workforce.

Paying employees correctly - recalculating timesheets

What's new

  • New Global Setting > Timesheet option to recalculate timesheets:
    • Off - never recalculate the timesheets
    • Only from selected timesheet and onwards - recalculate approved timesheets that fall after the selected timesheet
    • All timesheets within applicable range - recalculate approved timesheets that fall before and after the selected timesheet

Why

Historically when modifying timesheets or approving timesheets in non-chronological order, Deputy did not recalculate existing approved timesheets to make sure pay rules were still followed for the applicable pay period.
