Labor Model Improvements - Permission settings & Bulk actions

Labor model feature has been improved to be more flexible and easily managed in the centralized Business Insights!
What's new ✨

  • Administrators can restrict who can manage the labor models via Business Settings now.
    • Can View/Run Labor Model : Users who have been assigned with this permission will only be able to read and run the labor models that have been set up for them.
    • Can Modify/Delete Labor Model:  Users who have been assigned with this permission will have the full power to manage (add/edit/delete/copy) labor models in their managed locations.    
    • For users who have neither of those 2 permissions,  they will not be able to see Labor models in Business Insights.
    • Enterprise customers can also set those permissions in the Employee Role app.
  • We also introduced Bulk Actions for labor model.
    • Bulk Delete will allow managers to delete selected labor models by one click.
    • Bulk Copy will enable managers to easily duplicate selected labor models from one location to other locations.





Why 🤔

Labor model is a powerful tool that will help you to make data driven decisions for your scheduling which will make a big impact on your business performance.

With the new permissions and bulk actions in place, you can manage your labor models in one centralized location and easily duplicate to other locations by your authorized managers only.

Create your own Employee Onboarding questions

What's new ✨

You can now create and ask your own Employee onboarding questions to suit your business needs.

The current onboarding form collects basic personal, banking and tax information, but what if you need to collect other important business-specific questions from your new hire? 

For example “have you had a workers' compensation claim?”, “what’s your uniform size?”, “do you have a preferred location?”.. the options are endless.

Why 🤔

Keep it all within Deputy - you won’t need to use a separate system to collect and store additional information about your team members. 

Unique & flexible - the flexibility to ask any question that might be specific to the business, whether it’s a short answer, Yes/No or multiple choice

Reusable - create it once and the questions will be included in all new onboards

Improved NetSuite Integration now available

What's new ✨

Deputy Premium and Enterprise now integrate directly from within NetSuite.

  • Synchronise your NetSuite employees - Add and update employees directly in Deputy from NetSuite and vice versa.
  • Import Timesheet data - From NetSuite, you are now able to import timesheet data directly for processing in NetSuite SuitePeople.
  • Import Deputy Locations and Pay Rates - Import Locations and Pay Rates to apply them directly to your new or existing employees in SuitePeople and have that synchronise back to Deputy automatically.


Why

NetSuite is popular with some of the larger Deputy customers and prospects but has never really had an easy-to-set-up integration before. A more in-depth integration makes it easier than ever to get timesheet data across to NetSuite, ready to pay your employees.

How to use it

The improved integration can now be installed directly from the Suite Apps marketplace in NetSuite.

Coming Soon: New multi-location selector for your schedule

What’s new ✨

You will have the ability to multi-select any combination of areas in the new schedule location selector (web).

Why 🤔

  • Flexibility with Multi-Select Locations - Making the schedule view more relevant by only showing exactly what you want. You can select any combination of locations & areas when scheduling
  • Efficiency - If you need to view and work across multiple areas and locations, you can now select them all in one go without having to frequently change location
  • System Performance - By showing only what you want, the Deputy platform doesn’t have to find all the shifts and staff you don’t currently need to look at. This helps the schedule perform faster and is one of a long list of upcoming performance enhancements we have planned — stay tuned!


How to use it

  1. Navigate to the schedule and you’ll find the new location selector where it’s always been
  2. Choose "Select Multiple"
  3. Select which areas and/or locations you’d like to view
  4. Hit "Done" to view your selection on your schedule

Sales Per Hour in Stats Panel

What's new ✨

Deputy is bringing you the ability to monitor the Sales per hour(SPH) in both Stats panel graph and table view.
We’ve also adjusted the default key business data showing up in the stats panel graph summary to make it easier to understand.
  •  Actual hours/wages/sales/labor%/SPH for past period
  •  Schedule vs. Forecast hours/wages/sales/labor%/SPH for current/future period
  •  You can always check budget vs. forecast vs. actual data in the hover-over popup as before


Why 🤔

With Sales per hour in the stats panel,  managers will not need to go back to Business Insight summary to check on those data.  It is easier for managers to leverage with this new north star metric while making scheduling decisions.

How to get it 🧪

This feature will be progressively rolling out to all customers in the next 2 weeks.

Go paperless & onboard new hires with our new UK Employee Onboarding experience

What's new ✨ Enterprise accounts - coming next month!

  • Personal and emergency contact
  • Bank information for direct deposit pay
  • New starter form, including national insurance number, student loan and P45
  • Right to work details

Need more documents from new starters? You can request important documents like training certifications / licences and send out employment forms like company handbooks and contracts to capture digital signatures from your new hires, which they can provide in Deputy, using any device.

Why 🤔

[Enterprise Only] Refreshed People Profile!


What's new ✨

Who doesn’t love a fresh new look? The People tab and employee profiles have a new look and feel. We have redesigned it for better navigation and so you can find & edit the information you need quicker. We’ve also reorganised and decluttered a few existing sections:

  • Profile includes personal details, employment details (where they work, training, pay, working hours), journals
  • Scheduling will have everything related to shifts, unavailability and leave
  • Activity includes news feed

Why 🤔

We've revamped the experience to give a faster, more intuitive experience to users, with improved workflow and a 'what you see is what you edit' philosophy, reducing the clicks you need to see your data.

The Help Articles below are easy to follow and guide you through the new experience:
