Easter eggs are great fun. Not only the chocolate kind or eggs filled with candy, but also the kind of Easter eggs that are ‘hidden’ inside everything from software to movies.
These hidden gems come in all different forms. Apple’s Terminal application is full of Easter eggs including being able to play Tetris, the Nokia phone classic game Snake and even running a psychoanalysis of your computer. Google also has plenty of tricks up it sleeves, try searching for ‘Do a barrell roll’, ‘I’m feeling curious’ or ‘Google in 1998’ to enjoy five minutes of fun.
While Quinyx doesn’t contain Easter eggs along these lines, it is full of functionality and powerful features which are often underused. So as our Easter treat for you, here’s 7 Quinyx features which we help save time and improve your productivity:
It’s possible to share folders and documents directly in Quinyx with selected colleagues, just like in Dropbox. Using this feature without having to navigate away from Quinyx is a significant time-saver for people who use it.
When it comes to filling shifts you can send shift offers via text message to all employees who match the skills you need for that shift. The receiver can then accept the shift by answering the text, reducing the admin time for them and you.
For fast-growing companies, organisation charts can change rapidly and frequently making it a time consuming task to keep track of all the changes. Quinyx will give you a full overview of your planning unit’s organisation hierarchy under ‘Employees > Org. chart’.
Send a notification to all employees when the schedule has been published by selecting a staff group under "Send publish notifications to" in the unit settings.
Define multiple managers for a single unit by selecting a staff group containing all relevant managers under "Manager group" in the unit settings.
Metrics that matter
Instantly see the metrics that matter to you and your business by customizing which metrics to show in the schedule summary in the unit settings under the Daily summary tab.
When dealing with large staff numbers it can be a tiresome process having to manually approve shift bookings. If you’re tired of approving all those shift bookings you can activate automatic approval of shift bookings (provided that the employee meets all requirements) in the unit settings under the Functionality tab.
And as a bonus treat several of our customers have asked for a list of email addresses for their employees. Did you know that you can create a list of the email addresses of the employees belonging to your unit?
You can access this report through Reports & Statistics, then choose reports. Choose staff reports, there you will find "Email list". In this report, you can choose to filter the data based on either the chosen section on the employee card, or on staff categories.
We’re constantly improving the features and functionality of Quinyx. That’s why we run regular updates to the software. Our spring update includes:
- The possibility to hide start and end times in employee portal for free day shifts
- Convert rounded salary transaction to another salary type
- Split worked hours outside shift into separate punches
It is not just new functionality that has been in focus the last month. We have also listened to our users and improved the product based on your feedback. Some examples of changes that have been made are among others:
- Last day of absence period is now shown in time view even if it ends prior to day break
- Scheduled staff report now only includes staff which are currently shared to the unit
