Sage People – Useful new features

There has been an incredible amount of development of Sage People this year, which no doubt you will have been made aware of via different communications, as they have been implemented. However, we wanted to highlight a few new features that have been recently added:

Objectives and Conversations

The new Objectives and Conversations features are fantastic, and a great improvement to the product at just the right time. Enhanced communication through the performance review process can really assist managers and team members who are still adapting to working remotely.

More information on Performance and Talent Management can be found on the Sage People website

Compensation Planning

This year has also seen the roll out of Salary and Bonus planning improvements. These out of the box features allow for compensation planning to be delivered by HR to managers to feed up their teams’ plans. As many plans as a customer might want can now be delivered at any time using their own projection formulas, exclusions and eligibility rules.

You can find out more about employee recognition and compensation management on the Sage People website

Half Day Absences

I’m not sure I speak for all the Tugela People team on this one, but I am sure I’m not alone in just how excited I got over this next feature!

You can now show absences in a calendar as part days.

More information about attendance and leave management can be found on the Sage People website

API’s

Sage People have also been working on a suite of API’s that are being rolled out as they become available. Currently you can build API’s for Employees, Salaries, Bonuses, Absences and Absence Balances, and now Timesheets. These come with increased security and controls over the usual Salesforce Rest API’s and should take less time to set up. More information on this can be found on the Sage Develop site

Lightning Email template Links

Finally, a little bit of housekeeping. If you’ve made the switch or are about to change over to lightning, you might find that your links from Action Events to the corresponding email templates don’t work anymore. Your URL for lightning will be slightly different. You can update the link in the Action Event object by updating the formula on the Email Template Link field.
