General Beta Testing Process
During the beta testing phase, we continuously collect feedback on the scope of functions and the user-friendliness of the revised time tracking function.
- The beta program started in calendar week 46 (2019) for selected beta testers.
- We collect and evaluate our customers' feedback directly throughout the entire beta phase.
Please note that customers wishing to participate in the beta program must use the new time tracking function for all of their employees. If you're interested in beta testing the revised time tracking function, please get in touch with our Support.
Scope of Functions And Additional Functionalities
Scope of functions:
During the beta program, you'll have access to the following functions:
- Calendar view for time tracking
- Entry and editing of incomplete attendance periods
Only enter a start time and complete the end time later at the end of your working day.
- Editing of attendance periods with proposal rights
Your employees are immediately able to edit existing attendance times, provided that they have proposal rights, triggering an approval process if required.
- Calculation of break times
Record net working hours from now on. Personio calculates breaks automatically based on the working hours entered.
- Project tracking
Activate project time tracking as required and analyze the hours worked per project from the attendance report.
- Attendance tracking via the mobile app
Track times in the Personio app in a quick, intuitive process. If you enter break times directly, you also have the option to allocate the time tracked to a project.
- Improved overview for confirming attendance times
Use the new confirmation page to get an overview of your employees' recorded working hours at a glance – no more need to confirm multiple individual blocks of time.
- Create break rules
Each work schedule can be linked to a break rule to define how long breaks should be for a defined number of working hours. Employees and approvers receive an alert if "incorrect" breaks are recorded. However, work hours can still be entered and approved even if breaks do not comply with the rule.
- Export of attendance periods including breaks
Export a monthly overview from the employee profile to get a detailed breakdown in a PDF format of the tracked work hours per day, along with a total of the break times.
In addition to the functions made available to you during the beta phase, we are continually working to expand the scope of time tracking functions.
The following functions will be available to you once the continuous revision process has been completed:
- Revised approval overview with filtering options
