An Ad-Hoc Pay run will help you process the payments for a terminated employee, rectify or make adjustments to the pay run processed before, and additional payments such as bonuses and commissions.

All you have to do is add the specific employees to the Ad-Hoc pay run, select the payday with the work period, and that’s it.

Deskera People anticipates each company will have unique scenarios for using this functionality. That’s why it provides maximum flexibility.

Default Leave Policy - Be Ready From the Get-Go

Preset with mandatory employment leave types for various countries, leave the hassle of setting it up in Deskera. (Childcare leave, Annual leave, Maternity leave, etc.) We handle all leave requisites as defined by the country regulators.

Suppose you want to edit the leave policies to offer your employees more than the minimum requirement. In that case, Deskera People enables you to change them wherever necessary with multiple options from the form available.

Create Custom Leave Policies

One leave policy does not suit all organizations’ needs, so Deskera People allows you to create as many policies in the system as you require.

You can set up your leave policy with carry forward, change accruals based on the period, enable leave policy only for certain people in the company, use Year of Service based entitlement, or even create a unique policy for every employee.

Simplified Approval Workflow

Need to keep the right people informed? No problem. You don’t need to worry about whether a manager receives an employee’s request. With automated notifications in Deskera People, no request goes unanswered or unseen.

Once the employee submits a leave request, managers can approve it instantly with a click of a button straight from the Dashboard. They can even explain if the application was denied or needs modifications.

Efficient User Management with Teams

While creating teams, you can map a group of employees with a manager. While setting up an approval might be difficult and complex, it is as simple as setting up the manager for the team created, and you are good to go.

All the employees are added to “Default Team” by default. It makes life simpler if you just want one person to approve all the leaves.

Create Custom Calendars and Work Week

You can quickly create your custom calendar with the holidays assigned based on the geographical region and the company’s requirements. It only requires a couple of clicks to add your holidays, and once you save, it will reflect on the Dashboard and the company calendar.

You can also set up your company’s default workweek in Deskera People to help make the leave application process smoother.

Leave Application is a Breeze

How many leaves do I have?” is a common question every time you apply for a leave. With Deskera People, you can sit back and see all the leave types assigned and their balances right in your Dashboard. You can put down your calculator.

Apart from the Dashboard, you can also view the accurate leave balances in the leave application screen, making it handy to discern your leave details.

Automation to the Rescue

Our leave module will be able to take care of allocating accruals, carry-forwards, and all the other complicated calculations that your leave policy generates for employees at specific intervals.

You can set up your employees to automatically increase their accruals once they hit a certain number of months/years of service with your company.

Are you allowing carry-forwards at the start of a new anniversary/calendar year? Or maybe your users are receiving their entire balance again? Deskera People can accommodate multiple scenarios.

Employee Self-Service is a Pleasure

Employees can view their payslips, apply for time off, and file their claims and expenses online. The leave application process is pretty straightforward as the leave types assigned to employees are visible in the Dashboard, and based on the same, one can apply with a single click.

The status of employee requests will also be visible in the Dashboard. They can re-apply for leaves or follow up with the manager for rejected leaves.

Snap and Upload Your Expense

Are you tired of manually inputting all your claims data?. Well, no more, with just one Snap of the receipt, the details such as vendor, date, and price are automatically coded and queued into the claims request.

Whether you are on your mobile or your computer, upload the image in your claim, and within seconds Deskera People can get the data from the receipts. You can also enter the expense details manually and save them with no image.

Your Expenses at a Glance

Get up-to-date and relevant data regarding all your expenses and requests on one screen. The clean Dashboard depicts all the recently processed claims and requests. A graphical interface illustrates the weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly expense claim trends.

Quicken the Claims Request Process

Managing expenses and claims has never been faster. Record your expense anywhere, anytime, and on multiple devices with Deskera People and upload the image to avoid filling the data.

Submit the claim from any of the multiple devices you have access to at that moment. Managers will never miss an expense request with notifications and a dashboard that shows a claim’s status.

Make Informed Decisions with Detailed Reporting

Expenses can quickly grow out of control, but you don’t want to put a stop to doing business. Deskera People’s expense system generates the reports and visualizations you need to analyze and make informed decisions on managing expense costs.

All these reports are right in your Dashboard, making it easier to access and decide based on data.

Create Custom Categories to Organize Expenses

Deskera People makes it easy to keep track of your spending by breaking down your business expenses into categories.
