One of our most exciting releases, all the beauty and convenience of bob has been injected into our mobile app. We’ve made a ton of additions to the functionalities, bringing you a whole lot of bob on the go. This is one app your people will love using.

Find out how to use the app and about all of its functionalities here.

Home is Where the Heart is

KUDOS Sharing is caring

Show your employees they're appreciated, and give them the tools to recognize each other. Kudos is another wonderful tool in bob for creating a positive culture.

NEW TO SHOUTOUTS Say it loud, say it clear

You’ve probably noticed some nice upgrades to the Shoutout composer, with a clear email subject line and easy tab navigation between Shoutouts, Polls, and Kudos.

So Much To Do(s)

CUSTOM FLOWS Go with the workflow

The new, highly customizable feature allows you to create flows with or without approvals and keep track in real-time. Delegate the work involved in updating employee changes and make sure that each stage is completed at the right time, by the right people.

Learn how to use Custom Flows, and sign up now for our webinar, Using Custom Flows: Workflow Automation, on Oct. 2nd.

Take Some Time Off


For those doctor’s appointments and personal errands, employees with hourly policies can now request time off by hour! Here’s how.

UNPAID TIME OFF POLICY To each their own

A new unpaid time off policy now appears in the ‘Type name’ dropdown when creating or editing a policy type. When selected it will automatically be calculated as part of the monthly potential, but don’t worry, unpaid time off will only affect attendance, not accrual or payroll.

BALANCE LIMITS Balancing act

You can now set a balance limit to any Time Off policy. When an employee exceeds that limit, they will see a new item in their Time Off cycle, ‘Expected balance limit’, or previous cycles will have days removed.


Giving you the flexibility to decide when a Time Off cycle is closed, the new Closing date delay field in site Time Off cycle settings allows you to add a number of days to the end of a cycle before balance calculations are made. The extra days will give you a window to tie up loose ends before the cycle is closed.

TIME OFF BALANCE EXPIRY Use by expiration date

A new option to define an expiry date for carrying over Time Off balance can now be found in the Policy Settings. Employees have until the selected date to use their balance, afterwards the carryover amount will be deducted. This is reflected in employees’ My Time Off view with the addition of the expiration date to the carryover row and a new row at time of expiry.

Beyond Time & Attendance

ATTENDANCE REMINDERS Set it and forget it

Two new attendance reminder options are now available for missing entry notifications: twice monthly and monthly.

And still more...

We've been so busy, we can't fit it all into one page. Check out more summer product releases here.
