What Can You Do with the People™ App?

You’re probably aware by now that we’ve released a People HR app for smartphones. It’s available for both Apple and Android devices, and you can download it for free – so today, I’d like to show you what you can do with it, and how to set it up:

Manage Holidays

You can manage anything to do with booking holidays directly from the app – that means you can request holidays for approval by your direct line manager, or, if you have people reporting to you, you can also view and approve pending holiday requests. You can even use the app to find out who else in your team is off on any given day, so don’t worry about accidentally approving too many holiday requests!

– Approve or reject pending holiday requests

Employee Directory

You can use your People HR app as a directory for contacting anybody in your company, directly from your device.

So, if you wanted to call somebody, you can simply select their name and it will add their number to your dialling screen. Likewise, you can choose to send them an email straight from your phone.

It seriously saves time on looking up phone numbers and email addresses and entering them yourself!

Remember, you can already search for contact details and manage holidays by logging into People HR from your main browser. Using the app simply gives you faster access to some of the really handy features.

How to Set Up Your App

There are a few things you need to do before you can use the People HR app – don’t worry though, they only take a couple of seconds:

  1. Login to People HR from your browser
  2. Hit ‘Settings’ and go to the ‘Mobile’ tab
  3. Tick ‘Allow Mobile Use’

And if you want to use the app as a directory, then remember to tick ‘Show Phone Numbers’, too.
