DigiQuatics Update: May 2017 Edition

Preface

May was a great month for us. We rolled out two huge updates: 1) Month view for the schedule and 2) Multi-Location ability for employees. With these new features there have been a few hiccups but we are glad that DigiQuatics is on the path to becoming the best system for large, and small organizations. DigiQuatics has also grown by 1,000 users in the last 45 days! Now for the updates:

Modules, Features, and UI/UX updates

Dashboard

  • Non-admins now have "Edit Availability" and "New Time Off Request" buttons on their dashboard view

General Announcements / Information

  • Implemented new system for welcome emails to ensure deliverability. If any new employees do not receive the "Welcome" email please let us know at [email protected]
  • Eventually we would like to roll-out a call-in time clock system where staff can input their employee ID to clock in and out. If that sounds interesting to you/your organizations please drop us a line at [email protected]

Closing Thoughts

We hope you had a good Memorial Day and summer season got off to a great start! As always, please let us know if you need anything at all and how we can continue to improve DigiQuatics to help your organization.
