People & Reports

PARTIAL CREATE IN IMPORTS Part the way
Ever imported an excel without completing every required column to bob, and received a “missing values” error message?  We have a solution for you: If you happen to import a row to the work table with missing columns, bob will automatically create a new row with the imported columns and keep your values from the most recent upload.



SEMI-MONTHLY REPORTS
On your own time
We’ve added another frequency option in reports: semi-monthly!  Simply choose the option from the drop-down menu to receive reports and feedback in your desired time interval.



ADDRESS HISTORY: REPORTS & EMPLOYEE CARD
History worth repeating
We’ve created an Address History report along with a new table view in the Employee Card showing the entire history of an employee’s address. To add to the address party, you can also bulk import historical address records now.



EMPLOYEE CARD USER DATA
Getting organized
We’ve moved the State field from Basic info to a new section, User Data. We’ve also added a new field there for you called Creation date, which shows the date the employee was created in bob.
