When we introduced the Payroll feature last December, we promised to roll out advanced improvements. Here is the first of many.

Also, we worked on the time off feature - enhancing its function - and made our mobile app more convenient.

Faster payroll, easier time off, and more efficient mobile app

A faster way to calculate NET salary 

Before, the HR team needs to export the GROSS salary from Grove HR to their existing file to calculate NET pay. 

This complicated process takes time and increases the risk of errors.

With the new Payroll update, you can now calculate the NET salary without copying/pasting it through different spreadsheets.

Here’s how:

  • Head over to Payroll, choose to Export a customized file, and upload a template file (which has all the formulas to calculate the NET salary).
  • Map the unique employee fields and fields you need for the calculation between Grove HR and the uploaded template. After mapping, Grove HR will show how many records you have successfully created, duplicated records, etc.
  • The new file will include the Gross salary populated from Grove and the Net salary calculated from the formula. You can now export it to get the NET salary you need to pay your employees.

 

Introducing the Advanced leave 

We’ve fixed a system bug that allows employees to submit time-off requests freely. Employees can no longer request day-offs that exceed their balance.  

Also, we are introducing the Advanced leave feature, which allows employees to request paid time off in advance instead of having to request unpaid leave. This new feature, also available on the mobile app,  can only be enabled when the employee used all the remaining balance (and carryover).

Get more things done in Grove HR mobile app

Lastly, you can now create News right on Grove HR mobile app without having to switch to a desktop. 

Additionally, inviting new employees to join and creating profiles just got easier. You can now add new employees on the mobile app by simply filling in 3 fields and edit the information later. Resend invitation is also available.
