We’re excited to bring you some amazing updates to flair. Our latest version includes a new organizational chart in the HR app on Salesforce, an improvement to absences for part-time employees, and the ability to mention colleagues in comments for even easier communication and collaboration.
New Org Chart in Salesforce
We understand that keeping track of employee relationships can be challenging, especially in larger organizations. That’s why we’ve added a visual overview of your organization’s structure in the flair HR app on Salesforce. The new chart gives you an at-a-glance look at employee relationships in your organization so you can easily check which employees are responsible to which managers.
To view the organization chart, simply log into the flair HR app on Salesforce and navigate to the “More” tab at the far left. You’ll find the org chart at the bottom of the pop-up menu. You can filter by location, department, or employee, to easily see the chain of command and the relationships between different employees. You can also zoom in and out, collapse and expand, and reset the filters using the icons at the top.
Absences Improvement for FTE Employees
We’ve improved how absence days are deducted for part-time employees with varying working hours. To ensure accurate time-off calculations, simply go to an absence category in Absence Settings in the flair HR app on Salesforce, and check the box labeled FTE-Based Absence Deduction. Then, edit your existing workloads to define the length of a full working day for one Full Time Equivalent employee. With this update, absences will be deducted properly, ensuring that your part-time employees are getting the time off they deserve.
Collaborating with your colleagues just got easier! We’ve added a new employee mention feature to the Employee Hub. Simply type the @ symbol followed by the name of the person you want to mention. You’ll see a list of suggested names pop up as soon as you start typing. Just click on the name you want to tag that person.
This feature is perfect for managers and team members to leave comments or ask questions on confidential issues like timesheets or holidays. Public comments can also be left in flair Cheers to increase employee engagement and morale. Now, if you receive a Cheer from a colleague and you want to thank the rest of your team, you can easily do so in the comments.
At flair, we understand that data privacy is of utmost importance to our users. That’s why we built our platform on Salesforce, which has a proven track record of protecting user data.
We guarantee that your data will be protected and any personal comments kept confidential. For example, let's say you're on the Absences page, which contains sensitive information between you and your manager. If you were to try and tag someone who doesn't have access to that information, they would not be notified and they won't be able to see that information.
In fact, if you try to mention a user without access, an alert will let you know. You can still mention a user without access, but their name will come up in brown, meaning they won't see or be notified about the comment. You can be sure that even if you accidentally tag a colleague, they won't be able to view your personal information.
We hope these updates make your experience with flair even better. Let us know how they work for you and what else we can add in the future. After all, flair is made for you!
