Mutual understanding is the key to effective communication, which is why we decided to create a place where employees can talk about themselves and learn something about others.
Answering a few questions will facilitate a substantive discussion, minimize misunderstandings and build a foundation of empathy, thanks to which employees better understand their needs, expectations, and cultural differences.
As part of the Work with me functionality, you receive a list of questions divided into thematic categories, under which you can:
The new functionality can be found in the Core HR People module in the "Work with me" tab. You can add, edit, and delete your replies there and view your co-workers' replies.
With hints and suggested answers, your team can easily fill out the tab and get to know others. You don't have to answer all the questions – just answer the ones you consider most important.
Check the details of your working day in a new, refreshed view. We refreshed the look of the window with information about the working day. Now you can check all the information more conveniently thanks to the intuitive view.
The new view makes it easier to find out about the employee's tasks and see what they spend their time on. You can find there the information about:
Save time on searching for employees' information. With the new People tab in the Core HR module, all employees can check the essential information, such as:
As an administrator, you have a full access to the:
You can restrict the access to the employees information according to your needs, so only authorized people can access them, e.g., managers can only see the documents and entitlement of their teams.
With a brand-new Calamari widget, you can start and end your workday directly from your phone's main screen. You won't have to open the app anymore to get started.
To place the widget on your screen, tap and hold the main screen, choose the "widgets" button, and choose the app from the list. You can choose how big the widget should be based on your needs.
Update your Calamari app in the Play Store and discover all the possibilities the new widget gives you.
You have a possibility to create as many leave types as you need but to make sure your employees know how and when to use it, you also need a good description. That's why we created a space where you can write a description with all the necessary information.
To ensure your employees know how and when to use their leave, add a description of leave you're offering. From now, to highlight the most important information and format descriptions, you can use a Markdown.
Your employees can check the formated description of a given leave type in their Entitlement tab.
Until now, you could change the overview information about employees only in your Configuration panel. We add the Administration section to the People tab to make your people management more efficient.
From now on you can change overview information quickly from the People directory.
Calamari KIOSK is getting a massive update. We've decided to rewrite it as a native app using the latest technology.
What does it mean for you?
SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) authentication is available for mobile devices now! Manage multiple accounts of your employees in one place the same way you do it in the web app. This method increases security and speeds up the log-in process.
Just a reminder: Calamari integrates with OKTA, OneLogin, and many other similar providers.
If you want a SAML authentication, contact us.
Our menu is changing for you! 🎉🎉🎉
We've introduced visual changes in our top and left menus. Thanks to them, you get more space in the workspace, which allows you to see all the information on one screen.
We've decided to change our menu structure to optimize your daily work with Calamari. We took the bookmarks from the top menu and moved them to the left one as a drop-down list. We've also removed the gray filter bar and moved the search box to the right corner of the top menu so it's in the same place on every screen in the app. This way, we have increased the working area on the Approvals, Applications, and Documents screens.
After researching on improving the usability of our app, we've decided to refresh the entitlement view on the Calamari web application and add new features that will make requesting leave days easier. 🎉🎉🎉
From now on, you can group absence types, check their descriptions, check the colors of absence types, see the list of all restrictions, and the number of leave days that will expire soon. With those changes, using the entitlement view will be more useful than ever!
Improved visibility with grouping makes it easier to find the needed information quickly. You can also add a specific color to every type of absence to help your employees intuitively navigate them.
