Auto Shift Assignment
The Hr or Administrator can define shift ranges for ‘In’ and ‘Out’ punches using the ‘Auto Assign Shift Import Time’ option. It automates the shift assignment function.
Path: Cloud > Settings > Attendance > Attendance Settings > Auto Assign Shift Import Time
The HR or Administrator can enable or disable the auto-shift assignments based on the category, department, and designation of the employees. By enabling this option, the system will capture the nearest shift timing on the employee’s punch-in and punch-out.
Path: Cloud > Settings > Attendance > Attendance Settings > Auto Shift Detect
Single Punch Shift
With this option, the employee needs to punch once during their shift and their attendance will be updated according to the shift assigned to them.
Path: Cloud > Settings > Attendance > Attendance Settings > Single Punch
Same Priority for Leave Approval Managers
We can set multiple managers at the same level and define different responsibilities regarding the approval of leave requests. For example, we can set one manager for approving the request, meanwhile other managers can be assigned to oversee the approval.

It will provide in-depth details such as the applicable form no., frequency, upcoming deadlines, etc. It has multiple filters such as the month and year, based on which, one can download the report and check last downloaded report history.

The Administrator or HR can now define a reporting and escalation matrix without changing the reporting manager for an employee. The Reporting Matrix and Escalation Matrix has four options:
