New and improved mobile app
The new BitaBIZ mobile app will soon be available.
It will be published to the App Store and Google Play during this fall.
It is a native app we are launching.
💁 You will be notified when it is available!
Employee's name and available status
When you open the new app, you see your name and your availability status on the app Start page.
The available status is controlled by the registrations that have been created.
See the info box below to refresh the meaning of the status icons.
If the user is approver. A link to the approver section is shown on the top of the landing page. See approver section below.
The employee can click on his or her name.
This will open a drop-down box with information about the employee's master data:
People (Phone book)
The People page on mobile now shows the same information that is already displayed on the web portal and in the Outlook app.
💁 If you click on the "in case of emergency" icon, contact info is displayed.
Whether the registration is shown in:
Registrations are now accompanied with the official colour code of the registration.
Hence, making it possible to recognize registrations also via colours. Cross web, mobile or Outlook.
When an event is saved. An in-app notification will inform the user if the registrations is updated to Outlook or if the registration is forwarded for approval, etc.
Updated design of "Show event"
Both employee and approver can click on a registration from their calendar and get more information about the registration.
The design has been updated. For example, the official colour code of the registration is shown.
💁 Like on the web portal, a registration that has been payroll processed cannot be deleted.
Security and ease of use
The new app is native.
This means improved security.
And not least improved ease of use when creating time registrations.
Login: Face ID
If Face ID is activated, the user is automatically logged in when the app is opened.
Login: Single sign-on (SSO)
When entering the email (user name), the app recognizes if the user is connected to SSO. Hence, we have removed the separate SSO login button. Making it more easy to login.
💁 We still have the separate SSO login button on the web portal!
It is now possible to request a new password from the mobile app. Provided the user is not connected to SSO.
More planning views are now available to select between: 1 day, 3 days or 5 days.
Daily work hours
If 1 day view is selected, official working hours with start time and end time can be shown.
This requires that work day start time and end time has been created.
The setting options are many when it comes to the Team Calendar, to mention a few:
Access to employee statistics:
Access to employee master data via the "See employee info" drop-down box:
Create registrations on behalf of employees
The approver can now create and delete registrations for employees from the mobile app.
The approver has access to the individual employee's calendar (registrations).
Employees are automatically informed via e-mail when the approver create or delete a registration on behalf of an employee.
Filter for processing requests
The approver now has access to the same filters for processing request as on the web portal.
Awaiting approval list
Like on the web portal, the approver can now approve only one request, selected multiple requests or click select all to approve all requests on the list.
Balance box when approving
If the approver chooses to process only one request from the list.
Then the balance related to the request will be displayed. Including the new balance after approval.
This applies to all 4 balances:
Please note, balances have balance control. Employees cannot make requests that breaks the vacation or time policy.
The approver can therefore safely use the "Approve all" function.
Approver can now handle the notification-flow from the mobile.
Hence, select when to be notified directly and when not to be notified.
Balance box & Standard work hours
Depending on the actual time the overtime is created... the app will suggest creating overtime either before or after normal working hours.
If the clock is 17:00 at the time of registration. Then the app will suggest registration of overtime from 16:00(work day end) to 17:00.
Employee has changed the proposed time period for overtime from outside normal working hours to within normal working hours.
The app therefore informs the employee that it is not possible.
Example: Time off
The employee correctly applies for time off within normal working hours.
But the Hour bank balance is in minus (there are no saving in the Hour bank).
This is communicated via the yellow balance box.
The approver will see the same yellow marking of the balance box when the request is processed.
Example: Day bank - Minus day
Minus days are used for multiple purposes. For example;
Minus days now also have a balance box. Requests overlapping weekends and public holidays do not count towards the balance (like vacation and other vacation).
Plus days are used, for example, to earn days off in relation to weekend shifts.
