Coming soon to WhosOffice

We’re constantly developing WhosOffice to make it even better for our users.

Although we don’t believe in fixed timescales – it takes as long as it takes to get things right – we want to share some of the latest projects on our roadmap, so you can see our strategic vision.

Item / Description Platform(s) Status
HR & Document Storage

We have identified the core HR and Document storage features that will be made available to our user base.

We are now working towards scoping the data structure and security requirements surrounding the storage of these new areas. Some examples of information that businesses will be able to record are:

  • Emergency contacts for staff (including Next of Kin)
  • Personnel Information, Date of Birth, Home address etc
  • Benefits & Memberships
  • Training and Certification
  • Company Documents, Staff Documents

As well as the above, we are working towards being able to offer a HR Case Management system to our customers. Which will allow HR teams to raise cases (individually or bulk) and a) track the progress of cases, and b) assign step-by-step workloads in order to assign responsibility to individuals throughout the case life-cycle.

We will post more as the information and any plans become available to share, including any additional costs that will be incurred for use of this new feature.

BULK BOOK LEAVE (STAFF)

Users (with relevant permissions) will be able to build and submit a schedule of bulk leave entries for a staff member to save time inputting these entries individually.

Some examples are "Every other Wednesday afternoon off for Study leave, for the next 8 weeks", or "Every 3rd Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday off for Hospital Appointments, for the next 12 weeks".

Task Planner

Notes: We are currently working with a customer of the platform to develop a task planner that will allow you to plan task(s) throughout the day (for a given group) based on your skillsets/requirements.

When used your staff members will be able to access a list of the tasks assigned to them on both their online dashboard, as well as on the mobile apps.

Users will be able to use the mobile apps to look forward to upcoming days to see the tasks assigned to them and the intervals throughout the day.
