Planning metrics is renamed to Data Center formulas (for Pro & Enterprise)

We are renaming Planning metrics to Data Center formulas.

Data Center formulas can be used as a Schedule tool that allows you to keep track of your planning needs by displaying the data from your formulas directly in your schedule.

From the Schedule > View settings > Data Center formulas you can select formulas from the Data Center to be displayed in your schedule.

For your formulas to be visible in this list, the option to Show this formula as an option to be displayed in Schedule needs to be selected for your formulas.

This feature is included from the Pro Plan and up.

Please reach out to our support team if you'd like to try it out.

Improved support for Absence accounts (UK, DE & DK only)

  • New option for Leave pay calculations: Hourly wage.

    We have added a new option for calculating Leave pay for accrued absence accounts in hours: Hourly wage.

    The Hourly wage option can be found under Vacation earnings when creating or editing an accrued absence account in hours and it will base the Leave pay on the individual employees' wage.

  • Improved support for Overlapping shifts in Absence requests.

    We have made some improvements to the selection of Shift types for overlapping shifts in Absence requests.

    As a manager approving an Absence request from Schedule > Absence requests > Edit request, you have the option to select what should happen to the employees' overlapping shifts. If the option to keep the shifts and change the Shift type is selected, you are required to also select a Shift type for the overlapping shifts.
    There's no Shift type selected by default, to ensure that you as a manager can make the correct decision on which shift type to use for each employees' request.

    If you select the option to keep the shifts and change the Shift type, there's a validation in place to ensure that you also remember to select the Shift type for the overlapping shifts before you are able to approve the request.
