Thirty Thirty: February 2021

Here’s a snapshot of how we’ve improved BambooHR within the last 30 days.

Last 30

2-Step Login

Security is paramount to us. Now, all customers regardless of their package have access to 2-Step Login, BambooHR’s native multi-factor authentication service. When enabled, access to BambooHR will require a password and unique code generated by an authenticator app, adding a powerful layer of security to keep your sensitive information safe from prying eyes.

Timesheet Entries Report (Time Tracking Add-On)

Timesheet visibility is important when tracking your employees’ activities, and seeing all the data for your entire team in one place helps you work smarter. With the Timesheet Entries Report, managers now have the ability to view timesheet information for their entire team. So, you can quickly spot anomalies, view who is clocked-in at any given time, see which projects and tasks are getting worked on, check notes, and monitor time entries for a chosen period of time.

Performance Enhancements (Performance Management Add-On)

Three cheers for Performance which has three small updates in the works! 

To help you manage your performance management efforts more efficiently, you’ll now see an updated design on your performance settings that includes new tabs to organize each section: people, assessments, feedback, and goals. 

We know how important it is to have options for scheduling feedback and assessments, so we’ve added a four-month option for both assessments and feedback. This will give you the flexibility to run assessments and feedback three times a year if that works better for your organization. 

And lastly, you have new date range options when running reports for your Performance management needs. Instead of being limited to review periods you can select date ranges for your reports so that you have the data you need in the time frame you need it. How’s that for flexibility!  

Next 30

Some cool things to look forward to in the next 30 days.

BambooHR Learning

Learning more about BambooHR is about to get much easier. Soon admins will have access to BambooHR Learning, a new self-paced, on-demand, look into your BambooHR account. You’ll have the ability to choose learning plans and courses of every product that offer you a real-life simulation of BambooHR. View, try, and test each product to become a BambooHR expert.

New Hire Packet Templates (Advantage Package)

One of the best ways to improve new hire engagement is to personalize the onboarding experience every step of the way. And since there’s no one size fits all in onboarding, you can now create New Hire Packet onboarding templates to customize your onboarding programs based on your different job types, roles, and locations. This along with improvements to the Get To Know You email makes creating a new hire packet more impactful than ever. 

Save Signed Docs to a Specific Folder (Advantage Package)

Since setting you free to do great work begins with saving you time, we’ve found a new way to do just that when it comes to managing your signed documents. Soon, instead of signed documents automatically saving to the signed documents folder, you’ll be able to specify the folder where you’d like them to be saved after they’ve been signed.

Custom Application Type Questions (Advantage Package)

To support you in your mission to find the best possible candidates, you can now choose from checkbox, yes/no, short written answer, or multiple choice question types when creating custom application questions for your job openings. You can even allow candidates to upload files as part of an answer. This will give you the flexibility you need to get answers to all your most pressing hiring questions while creating a more direct and clear application experience for candidates.

Thanks, and Happy Bambooing!
