Coming soon: New Profile screen

Your Planday app is about to get a new Profile screen where we have gathered all standard account-related activity. You can access this page from the app's overview screen by tapping on your profile picture.

This will gradually become available with the newest version of Android (7.4.0) and iOS (7.4.0) in the coming weeks.

On this new Profile screen, you can find the following functionalities:

  • Switch between your Planday accounts

  • Update your profile information and picture

  • Set your preferred language

  • Adjust notification preferences

  • Sync Planday to your external calendar

Coming soon: The Account tab is renamed to More.

In light of the new Profile screen and the standard account-related activity being moved to this new page, we have renamed the Account tab in the bottom right corner to More.

You can still find all the remaining activities from the Account tab under the More tab.

This will gradually become available with the newest version of Android (7.4.0) and iOS (7.4.0) in the coming weeks.

Coming soon: Additional language support: English (United Kingdom)

From the new Profile screen > Language, you will be able to select English (United Kingdom) as your preferred language in the Planday app.

This will gradually become available with the newest version of Android (7.4.0) and iOS (7.4.0) in the coming weeks.

Coming soon: Android Fix - Approve Punch clock entries through the App.

The issues with approving Punch clock entries through the App (on Android) are fixed in the newest version of Android 7.4.0.

API/Integrations:

Single Authentication and Single Sign On with Xero credentials (UK only)

Our new Planday + Xero authentication feature allows you to sign up to Planday using your Xero credentials from the Xero App Store.
This also allows you to keep using your Xero credentials to sign in to Planday without the need to create any new usernames.
You can find more information here.

Improved support for Fortnox payroll export file (SE only)

  • New file format - XML

    We have changed the file format for the Fortnox Payroll export file to XML, to better support downloading the file on different devices.

  • Coming soon: Planday Department numbers as Cost centers

    You can soon add your Planday Department numbers as Cost centers to your Fortnox export file.

    If you add a department number under People > Departments, you will be able to see this reflected in your Fortnox xml report as per the below example:
    <resenheter>
    <resenhet dim="1" id="{department number}"/>
    </resenheter>

    If you’d rather not include any Cost centers, please, ensure that you select this in Planday by navigating to Settings > Integrations > Fortnox export file > Manage > Untick “Include department number (Fortnox Cost center)”.

    Please, note that your department number can only be up to 6 characters long. Please, also ensure that Fortnox is set up to support cost centers under settings and that you’ve created the equivalent cost centers under the Cost centers Index, otherwise the file import will not work.
