You may’ve noticed the changes we’ve been making to the site over the past several months. First, we made it easier to manage your tracking Preferences. Then, we brought you a new Reports Library, with even more robust reporting capabilities. In the next few weeks, we’ll introduce you to the next generation of our tracking calendar.
You may be wondering how much more is changing? Quite a bit.
Soon, the calendar will discontinue using the Silverlight platform. That will mean moving around in the calendar much faster, cutting the time you spend looking at a loading bar. The calendar is also getting an all-new look with color-coded employee names instead of the word “absence” or “event” (see who’s out at a glance) and the ability to filter by department.
We’ll also be adding a convenient daily detail list so you can see everything you have going on that day — absences, birthdays, deadlines, pending vacation requests and more.
Also on tap is a calendar entry icon at the top of your calendar to make adding absences and events a snap. No more scrolling through a long, unorganized list of active or inactive codes.
And when you’re in a hurry, you can just double-click anywhere on the calendar and a new entry form will appear to record an absence or other event.
And this is just the beginning.
For a few months, you’ll be able to jump back and forth between the old and new TrackSmart Calendars while we continue improving other areas such as Time Sheets, Employee Profiles and Employee Self-Service Setup.
Then down the road, once we have everything just so, the old calendar will fade quietly into the night. Then you can enjoy your new-and-improved TrackSmart features full-time, for real. Look for the full transition by Fall 2013.
