Happy new year! We hope that 2021 brings you new opportunities, improved performance and overall success in all your endeavours. As always, we’ll support you with an efficient and effective payroll system. We’re kicking off the new year with a brand new feature – you can now assign leave policies to employees in bulk.
SimplePay’s leave functionality allows you to set a company default leave policy for all employees that are added to the system. You can then assign a different leave policy to employees if they are not on the default policy. Being able to assign leave policies now in bulk saves you time if you have many employees who are not on the company default policy. It is also useful for companies who do not have a single company default policy, but rather separate policies per pay point or pay frequency.
Once you have created your leave policies, you can assign them in bulk as follows:
- Go to Employees > Bulk Actions
- Click on Entitlement Policies under the Leave heading
- Use the filters to select only those employees that are part of a specific pay point or pay frequency
- Use the drop-down menus to allocate the leave policies for each leave type for each employee on the page. If all employees on the page are on the same policy, use the Copy first value down option to save you time.
- Click Save
It’s as simple as that. For more information on leave management and bulk leave actions, refer to the following pages:
