We are excited to announce our new release of OfficeClip 9.1. This is a major release and has been made possible because our users have provided us lots of feedback in our feedback site. In this release we bring you a new Application called Paid Time Off. It is now possible to track employee paid time off (PTO) and manage vacation accruals. Other major enhancements include ability to control the page size and using template to create the login screen. In addition to this we have made a lot of small enhancements and many bug fixes.
New Application: Paid Time Off and Accruals
When an employee requests a time off, depending on the settings, it will show up in the group calendar. The entire group will be able to see the status of the time off and who has requested it. This helps the team to know who will be available at a particular point of time. Administrators can also set who can approve the time off.
Accruals rules can also be set for each time off category and the system automatically calculates the accruals. For example, a rule can be created such that “each employee can accrue 1.25 vacation days every month but can only carry over 5 vacation to the new year”.
Controlling the Page Size
Based on the popular suggestion we have made it possible for you to control the page size of the Contact Manager pages. The page size once set is remembered in the program.
Templates for Login Screen
The login screen has been made more configurable, you can now select from various templates as a starting point of what your login screen should look like.
