Hello AkkenCloud Partner,
Welcome to this month’s installment of the Product Feature Awareness Program! Unlike the sunshine which has been on vacation this spring, the AkkenCloud team continues to shine and quickly pump out new features that you have requested. This month we have made a few major enhancements to shift scheduling.
Fill Shifts Quicker Than Ever
With our newest enhancements to shift scheduling, you can now assign shift times and be certain that every shift for a given job order gets filled! Users now have the ability to establish shifts for each job order which can easily be verified with a specific candidate’s availability. Shift times will be represented by a color-coded modal box from the candidate level, putting them onto the short list for a shift. This quick reference makes the placement process even easier than it was before.
Automated Sync Saves Time and Reduces Manual Entry
The new shift feature also extends into the back office! When you create shifts and establish the pay rate for each shift an employee can just choose the shift that they worked in the time sheet assignment drop-down, and all of their rate information will carry over automatically! Also, companies can set default rates for each shift established, ensuring that the correct rates are assigned in the future, and further simplifying and streamlining the job order creation process.
We are so excited about these new features, that instead of a video this month, we conducted a live brown-bag session which you can view below!
