New Feature: Bulk Assign Leave Policies

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:

Bulk Import Employees from ROS

We have a new feature that we’re very excited about and think you will be too. It’s now possible to import new / additional employees and their RPNs directly from ROS. This means that you no longer need to manually add employees if they exist on ROS with a valid RPN. 

To import employees in bulk, navigate to Employees > Bulk Actions > Import Additional Employees. After importing the list of employees from ROS, simply select the employees you want to save, complete some basic employee information and select the save button. The selected employees will be created in SimplePay. 

For more information, please refer to our help site page or contact our Support team who will be more than happy to help you.

We hope you will enjoy this new feature us much as we will.
