📊 Deeper insights on approved change requests
For Sapling customers leveraging our Track & Approve add-on to keep tabs on key employee data – we’ve added a simple way to view all changes that have been approved in the past.
By navigating to the Pending Approvals dashboard you’ll now see the option to have all “Previously Approved Requests” emailed to you in CSV format with details on what change was requested, who requested it, and who approved it (CSV example here).
This is particularly useful if you need to provide specific examples of the change request process to auditors, helping you to fulfill compliance needs in one easy click.
→ Don’t have our Track & Approve module, but still want to look at historical data? As always, you can view individual change history directly from a team member’s profile by navigating to Job Details > Change History.
→ Curious to see how Track & Approve can help you eliminate manually tracking key employee data and chasing people down for approvals? Send us an email at email@example.com to learn more!
🔮 Retroactively assign tasks based on key dates
As you iterate on the internal processes that work best for you and your team, Tasks in Sapling Workflows are naturally subject to consistent updates.
Now, when you add new tasks to existing Workflows, you can retroactively assign those tasks to any team members currently in those Workflows with flexibility on when to notify them of this task.
For example: Let’s say your team adds a task to an existing Onboarding workflow that helps showcase your team culture – i.e. a task for new hires to “Add your favorite song to our team Spotify Playlist.”
For all existing new hires going through the Onboarding workflow when you create this task, you can ensure they are notified at the right time by adjusting the “Assign on” date (versus historically only being able to retroactively assign the task immediately as you create it).
