One of the most requested updates to the WhosOffice platform from our users was the ability to extend the functionality of the Overtime feature. Although Overtime has been a part of the platform since it's inception, customers wanted more from this area of the system, so, we have delivered an update to the Overtime area which will help many of our customers, as well as fitting with our ethos that "everything should change nothing".
When setting up an Overtime type within the system, administrators will see two new options under the "Reimbursement" setting, "Allowance, by lookup" and "Paid, by lookup". You still have the option of reimbursing staff members using a flat rate for the overtime type, but if you want to specify in more detail the different rates and reimbursement amounts, the two new options are for you.
The list you can build is infinite and is presented to the staff member as a list of specific options when submitting overtime requests, which allows you to control the amount of overtime worked so that you only offer overtime in blocks of 2, 4, 6, or 10 hours, as well as specifying the exact amount of reimbursement to give back.
Check out the screenshots below showing the "Submit Overtime" function both online and via the iOS app. As you can see, the options made available for submission are presented to the staff member when they prepare their submission.
