We’re thrilled to share 10 new Planday updates for web and app, all available to you now! Below, we’ll briefly explain what they do, and how they’ll help you run a smarter operation for your business.
1. Improved schedule
A lot has changed in your Schedule! View it in a weekly, monthly, or biweekly format, see shifts to be filled, salary costs, employee hours, and more. We also added more filter options, for a quick overview of critical information from inside your schedule. Filtering by “shift type” is a favorite of ours, for a fast overview of sick days or overtime across your employee groups.
2. Automatically add breaks
As a manager, the last thing you want is to break any labor laws, but staying compliant can be a nightmare when it comes to scheduling. Now with the ability to automatically add breaks to your schedule, you can ensure your employees always have their required breaks built right into the schedule. Those breaks will be automatically added to the schedule and deducted from payroll. We’ve also introduced manual breaks, which let you create a standard break time for each employee. Learn more about setting up breaks in the Help Center.
3. Planday is now on iPad!
Check out the fully loaded Planday app for iPad! With an increasing number of companies running their entire business from iPad, our new app makes it possible to manage employee time clocking and scheduling from an iPad. Download it now to give it a spin!
4. A better overview and faster loading schedule!
From your great feedback, we’re rolling out a series of updates to the Schedule overview so that making changes on the go is quick and easy. Our latest update includes a 3 or 7 day view of the Schedule, which works in both portrait and landscape mode. And your Schedule now loads a whole lot faster! If you have any app inputs or feedback, we’d love for you to send them our way by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. All your company documents, right inside the app
Employees can now access their documents from the Planday app. When you upload your employee handbook or weekly menu, staff members can access them right from their phone or tablet.
6. Switch accounts in one click
Managers and employees who work across several accounts can now save time by quickly switching between their profiles.
7. Request and view availability from the app
Employees can inform their manager when they prefer to work. They can also edit their availability in real-time so that it’s always up to date. This makes for happier employees and less time spent updating the schedule to accommodate requests.
8. New Integration Partners
Planday integrates with many of the services you already use! We’re always adding new integrations and partners, and are pleased to announce our latest integrations.
9. Sage 50 Payroll
Are you using Sage 50 for payroll? Now you can quickly generate your payroll files in Planday, structuring all relevant payroll information to match the Sage 50 Payroll format. Easily import the payroll file into Sage 50 for a pain-free payroll process. Import Sage 50 payslips into the Planday system so employees can access their payslips, both on desktop and app.
Planday Integrates with NCR Aloha, Micros 3700, Maitre’D, POSitouch, Dinerware, or InfoGenesis through the integration platform Omnivore. This integration automatically imports your revenue data into Planday, which makes it possible to view your schedule, employee management, revenue, and business costs all in one place. With this integration, you can compare your payroll costs to your revenue, so you’re able to create a schedule that works best for the financial health of your business.
